” Benjamin Blue Benjamin Button” – interview with hip hop producer KP Beatz

Major Credits? (artist/song)
I would say my biggest credit right now is probably Benjamin blue Benjamin button with thouxanban fauni but I got a lot of new music with other artists on the way.
 How old are you? 
Just turned 21
Where are you from?  
I’m from LA but I grew up near the valley which is like reseda and porter ranch etc. it’s pretty boring though once you’ve been there for so long lol
How long have you been producing?
Just around two years now
 What’s the dopest thing to happen to you since you started making music and releasing product?
Having people hit me up sayin they really like my beats and just seeing my fan base  grow more and more. It’s funny i graduated high school in 2015 and I always tell people I used to listen to fauni, uno, and a lot of these others artists I worked with while in school and Now I’m working with them almost everyday it’s crazy.
Who are your biggest influences? 
I’d say metro boomin and 808 mafia are my biggest influences. I used to watch the old good cook up videos on metros YouTube channel and just be watching thinking like damn I want to be just as great as him. And the way him and southside killed 2017 and went crazy I wanna do the same with 2018.
Want to give any shoutouts?
Yea shoutout my brothers from 808 Kartel Dj Flippp, Krookz, Reddrum ya digg we goin up this year no cap.
What is something about you people would be surprised to know?I’m half Indian half Mexican I don’t know that seems too surprise people a lot of the time hahahaha
Whats your process for making a beat?
I don’t really have a set process when it comes to making beats. Generally I gotta be in the right mood and mind state, but otherwise I just sit at the keyboard and play till I get something I like and go from there.
What do your beats normally cost?
Normally for a lease I’ll charge round 150 but for exclusives I do about 500-600 but I always try too work with peoples budgets.
What is the most you have made from one beat?
Like 200
Any story or stories on how you secured some of your placements?
Well the way I got my placement with fauni was just sending beats to the email in his bio. A lot producers do that actually but yea I would just send him beats almost everyday I didn’t even know he was opening them until I saw he posted a video on insta of him listening too Benjamin blue Benjamin button and I was like oh shit that’s my beat! Since then I linked up wit fauni in person like a week later now that’s my dawg and we got a lot of new shit on the way.
Do you use Hardware or software?
I use Fl studio. The only way too go you dig.
How many leases or beats, do you think you have sold in your career?
Honestly can’t really put a number too it I lost track.
what are your plans for 2018?
Me and my brother Nessly got a ton of new music on the way this year and just going even harder this year with my 808 Kartel Gang this our year so definitely keep a look out.
Do you receive royalties for any of your beats?

I do receive royalties I didn’t know much about that kind stuff either when I was starting out like a lot young producers but just the people I met a long the way explained it too me and how it works. Now I got a manager who handle all that stuff though but for young producers make sure you always monetize your music and register with a publishing company like ASCAP or BMI and register all your stuff there too.
