Buy beats and move to the next level
The major artists you look up to do make it seem like it's easy to get up to they're status - but they buy beats too. The horrifying truth is that they had to work hard to get there. Surprising isn't it? Well you have to realize that it takes a lot to get to the position that they are at now. Sometimes, yes their might just be situations where you get lucky, but in all honestly those situations come a dime in a dozen. Many times you have to pay for submissions to a&r's, or you have to pay to get your mixtape on major publications such as big promo on coast to coast mixtapes. By just recording over free beats or doing covers over beats that major artists already destroyed, you will not make it. You need to move to the next level.
Why Don't you Buy beats?
What exactly is your reason for you not to buy beats? Is it because you are broke? Is it because you think you are better than everyone else and you don't think that you should pay for beats? Well if you answered yes to any of these things then you have a major problem! When you want to get those new sneakers that just came out how do you get the money for that? Or that new jersey that just came out for your favorite basketball player? You do what you have to do to get that money! Same applies to your business - why would you not take the time to invest in your craft. Your music is your business. The more you put into your music the more of a result you will get. Nobody will invest in someone who will not do what they have to do to get to the next level. No one will willingly do all of your work for you, unless you pay them. Do you know how major artists get their beats? They have their executives and their other "important people" find beats online and negotiate rights and pay for the material. Do you know why they pay for the music? Because they know that their artist will put in the work and they will hopefully make back that money.
Buy Beats, Buy Quality
I would like to make it very clear to you that QUALITY IS EVERYTHING! Point blank. If you do not have quality material then your listeners will see that, and others who might do business with you will see that. This can be a very big turning point in your business growth if you can treat your business as if it was something you care about most.
If you don't get it already, quality is the main reason why it's best to buy beats. 80% of the time when you get a free beat, it is not of best quality. I'm pretty sure that you can hear the difference and you know very well that it isn't the best, but for some reason upcoming artists remain satisfied with low quality material. Your business is YOU and YOU are your BUSINESS. The way you represent your business is the way you represent yourself. Simple! Why would a label want to sign you to their label if you cannot even represent yourself correctly, or create quality material that will benefit them and yourself.
Increased success by buying beats
Increased success possibility is only established by increased confidence, increased productivity, and increased quality of work. There is no law for how this works, you must find out what formula works for you, but if you apply these small things into your mindset and you will see results right away. If you do not have confidence in your own self, then definitely no one will have confidence in you. If you have the confidence to start investing money into your craft, then you will see how closer you will be to success. From personal experience I have realized that when I put my money into my business and I see the results from what I paid for, I am more influenced to put in more work into my craft. No one is rich, so I do not suggest just spending blindly, but realize that sometimes you have to pay for work to be done. Do you understand the concept to buying beats now? Hope so.
