Nineteen94 thoughts on royalties and revenue streams for hip hop producers:
“Yeah so as a producer you have a few different ways to collect royalties. The first would be artists placing there songs you produced on Apple Music, Spotify etc. You’ll need to make sure you have BMI or some form of publishing company so they can collect those royalties for you. Along with that will be what we call “Split Sheets” that’s when you’ll break up a percentage based on what you agreed upon between everyone involved in the song. Producer, Engineer, Artist, Songwriter everyone gets a cut. Second way is to run ads on your Soundcloud and YouTube. It’s what we call ad revenue. There’s a a few services that you will do that all for you such as Beatstars.
A lot of producers come in to the game thinking it’s just about selling beats but really there’s a whole different side of the business when it comes to producing. Young producers need to read up on these things quickly because you never know when you might get a placement and you’re left out of the loop…
Ultimately; I make more from straight leasing beats. I get lots of emails a day for leases and exclusives. Royalties only id say I make somewhere in the few hundreds a month.”
