Fly Melodies is a Hip Hop Producer I have been trying to do an interview with for awhile. He’s one of those producers that are on a short list that I just haven’t seem to have been able to get an interview with for some reason even though I keep reaching out. Seriously the list for awhile has been;
- Fly Melodies
- Kid Ocean
Well now I can say that I can cross Fly Melodies off that list because he finally hit me back with answers to the questions I asked him:)
Now before we get to the interview lets talk about who Fly Melodies is. If you are someone like me who is always looking for beats, then most likely you are typing “(insert rapper name here) type beat” and usually one of the producers who almost always has 1 of the top viewed tracks is Fly Melodies. Example: The video below is #10 most viewed XXXTENTACION type beat on YouTUbe.
In a little over 20 months, this Hip Hop producer has released 189 videos and racked up as of this writing 33 K + subscribers and 6,876,565 views on his YouTube Channel.
Besides that, he has collaborated with one of the other artists on the list of producers earlier, CorMill.
Also he has gotten some pretty interesting placements if you ask me, like Rico Nasty and Lil Skies. Two artists that will be blowing up in 2018… So you can be sure any producer they worked with is going to have their stock rise.

Do you receive royalties for any of your beats? this is something that a lot of younger producers don’t know to much about so if you can share any insights on royalties, that would be highly appreciated. Yeah, be cautious what u sign, If it’s something serious, you have to involve a lawyer. I have already signed bad deals, it was for smaller projects, but I have not seen a penny from those. Everyone wants the best for themselves, ain’t no fairty tales here, y’all better get it, this is straight business, so If you want a good deal you have to stand up for yourself as a producer and be serious, and never underestimate your beats and give them for cheap.
