Nipsey Hussle Type Beats

If you haven't heard of DUBTurbo yet, you're just about to! The First Way: This is the classic 'I want to be a producer and make hip hop beats for the best rappers in the world!' or better yet, 'I want to be one of the best rappers in the world!' Okay, this reasoning is okay because you gotta have your dreams, but some people think they can buy their dreams.
Manchester-based producer Menace famously sold Desiigner the beat for Hot 100 #1 Panda (which was a Meek Mill Type Beat”) for $200 on SoundClick However, there is a philosophical divide between the first two generations of hip hop and the modern third generation of rappers and producers who are utilizing the type beat approach.

There are plenty of hip hop beat makers that don't break the bank, and better yet, don't have a long learning curve and although I can mix pretty well now, I don't think it was wise of me to start with a high-end software program (ProTools) when I simply didn't know what I was doing.
The first line of MPC's (such as the MPC60), as well as keyboards like the infamous ASR-10 set the pace and changed the hip-hop beat game completely (other popular hardware workstations include the Roland Phantom, Korg Triton and Yamaha Motif as well).

Wright: Back then, it wasn't a "Type Beat" thing, you labeled it like "Club Banger" or "R&B Smash." I don't know who started that, but it happened back then in Soundclick days and I remember people doing that on YouTube, but it wasn't a crazy like it is now.
While the majority of artists use Instagram as a way to promote their EPs, albums and tours, there are MPC, APC and SP-404 warriors who have made full careers out of selling their beats to rappers through Instagram - asking those who are interested in buying any to DM for beats".
An executive producer on both The Weeknd's My Dear Melancholy and the self-titled debut from Camila Cabello, the multi-platinum Dukes also made sure his presence was felt on the hip-hop charts with instrumentals made for Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Gunna, Mozzy and Cardi B.

One of the features that I really really like is the feature where you can make your own playlist and include several different beats from different producers; that's awesome. Only a limited handful of these are able to give you pretty much everything you will need to make ones own new hip hop songs.
Platforms like BeatStars and Airbit help beatmakers run an automated beat selling business. To get noticed on SoundCloud, you need to ‘like' music, repost songs and post genuine comments. You don't need to (immediately) quit your job to start a beat selling business.
The beats are made by using similar sounds as Post uses in his music. XXL highlighted the work of 50 producers who were responsible for crafting the sonic backdrops that soundtracked Nipsey hussle type beat hip-hop in 2018. I remember when I first began researching how the most successful producers in this arena marketed their beats—I was shocked, to say the least.
