Congratulations to OakerDidIt for producing “Why They Mad” by Gutta100

I am all about the lyrics of a song, like I can’t understand how people say they don’t pay attention to the lyrics they just pay attention to the beat. But I do know that the beat is everything, its the key essential part for a song to spread like wildfire. And a couple days ago I wrote about the song “Why They Mad” by Gutta100, a song making waves on the florida underground and online.

Well it turns out that the beat was produced by the homie OakerDidIt, a producer we interviewed a while back.

Stream the song on Spotify today!

My thoughts on this video.

  • The songs actually somewhat good.
  • Wait for the hair flip.
  • Seriously, please just pay attention to that hair flip at the :36 mark.
  • Song is hella relateable and going to attract this dude fans.
  • Trying way to hard. I’m pretty sure at one point he just points to roses. lOL.
  • How much you want to bet he hasn’t even watched Scarface.

Flip one of these samples and make 25

I am promoting and advertising this contest, so a lot of you reading this might not know who I am or what I do with curatedflame.com.

  • CuratedFlame aims to be a site that is known as a resource, a resource for rap fans looking for the next artist to listen 2 and in fact I was the first site to interview and write about rappers such as Icy Narco, GlokkNine, Hooligan Chase, and ILoveFriday, to name a few.
  • And a resource for the up and coming producers and rappers. I have interviewed over 125 hip hop producers and I have written many articles geared towards helping producers and rappers with their craft.

I am looking to take CuratedFlame to the next level and one of the things I want to do is release a beat tape. A beat tape that features multiple producers and features beats that are unique. So for the next several weeks I plan on hosting a few contests and this is the first one.
So here’s all the info:

“C3P0 Was a Sad Boi” new music from Xay Scott

Xay Scott is a producer who has worked with many artists from Lil Uzi Vert to Good Charlotte and now he’s trying his hand at making music of his own. I know the dude and we talk a lot actually and he’s been telling me to check out the track and I am always doing 10k different things so it takes me awhile to get the stuff.

I finally played it an hour ago when I was doing one of my posts I just published and now I am on its 4th play and I fear I am actually going to be replaying it more. Lol. Like forreal though. So many rappers say they are making a new wave or doing something others aren’t and that just 99% of the time not true. Xay actually does it though on this track and honestly I don’t really know how to describe it besides saying like yeah it’s rap. But it’s rap if C3P0 was a Sad Boi.

And at 1:50 it’s criminally to short.

Who is Callari?

WHO IS CALLARI?

By @MusicOfCarolina

Edited by @nicejewboy

How did you get your name? Do you pronounce the L’s?

Callari is actually my last name. My producer name used to be OleMcDonald (no troll) but my friend Lone and I made a song and he was like. “This producer name looks retarded, imma use ur actual name.” So he credited me as Angelo Callari. Then i was like, this shit too long so i used just my last name. Its pronounced either Kuh-Lar-EE or Kuh-Larry.

“Today I’m going to learn how to produce music.” What made [a] younger Callari act on this thought?

I started this whole producing thing while i was in college. I used to come home so tired and bored, and i was friends with uglyfriend at the time. Me and him used to be hella cool, and he been producing for a minute. I’ve always loved music so i asked him to send me the program and he taught me the simple shit on FL. I just kept going and going and look where im at now. Shit is so cool.

Orange Email Pack (1)

What is it like creating in West Palm Beach, Florida?

SHIT. Honestly i don’t have many music friends out here. Nothing really goes on in West Palm it’s all in Broward which is like an hour away. I recently started hitting studios and shit, saw Cris Dinero and made some friends, but the whole music scene is so different in other areas.

You reached 1,000,155 plays on SoundCloud in the middle of December (2017) after only making music for one year. Many producers out there only have a few tracks on their pages if anything. Can you explain why you post your placements on your own SoundCloud page?

Yea it’s crazy i even got that amount of plays. I’m almost at 2 mill now. The ones on my page are the ones that i asked artists if i can post. Usually i send more than one beat out. So if they use 2 i just ask to post one. I get some money off of it, exposure etc. It actually helps out a lot, building relations with artists is important.

-You’ve produced for: Lucki, Famous Dex, Chris Travis, Cold Hart, [Lil] Tracy, CHXPO, Curt McGurt, Ron$oCold, BigBabyGucci, ATL Smook, Adot, Warhol.ss…and this is only half the laundry list of placements w/ artists. Who can your supporters expect to see you collaborate with in the future?

Definitely more with ron, lucki, smook, tracy etc. Supposedly i got something with Trippie redd. When i make this NY trip im gonna be with smooky so hopefully something with him. Ummmm, swaghollywood, Xelly etc. Something with ron dropping this week too, I’m going crazy.

What’s your opinion on fake love?

Fake love is one of the worst things ever. Shit dumb, it costs 0 dollars to keep shit real with people. I’m 100% real with everyone no matter who they are. Everyone should be the same way.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Easy. The people who flake on copping beats or come dm me and expect me to toss them a beat. I DONT CARE HOW MANY PLAYS U GET IF I DONT HIT U FIRST DO NOT EXPECT SOMETHING FROM ME. You don’t go to stores and walk in and expect free shit, same goes for producers. This shit is money, a source of income, don’t come at us unless its correct with money, simple.

How did Prod. BySpeedway get your beats last year, and why were they uploaded/leaked to reddit? Are leaks something you worry about often?

On traktrain last year, you could just rip beats from the source code, so thats what he did to me, and like 50 other producers. He just wanted to be a dick i guess. I was so heated when it happened LOL. Captain Crunch dmed me and was like, “bro cool down. all you doing is giving him attention.” he was like, on some “if a tree falls in the forest and nobody around is anyone gonna know or care.” just let him be, let him do him, and don’t pay any mind to him cuz that’s what he wants.”

 

What’s your favorite streetwear brand out now? 

Supreme (SHOUT out stacy money). They just make shit that catches my eye idk. I’m not too big on the whole fashion shit i just wear shit that looks good to me irdc.

What placement made you geek out the most?

100% the tracy placement, lucki and chris travis. About a year ago i could only IMAGINE working with these people. They’re some of the first people who got my attention on SoundCloud.  So to work with either of them just blows my mind.

Do you have a go-to artist for tape/song covers?

Fyest artists are easily Papikodone, davis7500, jerbear and catchphrasejones. They make some amazing shit frfr.

What are your rates? (For the folks who can’t check your TrackTrain account.)

50-250 for leases. I judge my beats and cheaper ones are the ones i dont fw as much, and 250 is a fye collab. But im down to work with budgets i know how it goes. Exclusives are 100-400, same concept applies.

Got anyone you want to shout out?

GINSENG, 22, MARCELO, WILDCARD, SHIRO, CAPTAIN CRUNCH, UGLYFRIEND, RONSOCOLD, BRENTRAMBO, DEAF AND ALL MY OTHER BROTHERS ILY FR LETS GO CRAZY. Shoutout my mom too love her.

How old are you?
i am 26 years old

funniest reason/excuse a rapper ever gave you for not having the money for a beat on time?
funniest reason was because they thought we was so close i was just going to givem the beat because he said he was next up and with me having placements and knowing whos gonna make it and who needs work i felt like that was hilarious this rap game isnt free so idk why even rap if you cant pay your way and thats me being honest.

Where are you from?
i am from milwaukee, wisconsin and i reside in houston texas

How long have you been producing? Why/How did you get into it?
i have been producing beats since i was 12 when my barber explained to me what it was and gave me fl studio i hooked it up and taught myself how to use it and since then i been a force to be messed with, i was also already playing the drums so my drum game is so locked down i caught on to fl studio quick.

When did you know you made it? or that this could be an actual career for you?
when i got my first placement with chedda da connect at the same time that flick of the wrist was blowing up, which is when i took my first trip to texas on a business trip.

White Email Pack

can you tell us about (me and the readers) the coolest, or most satisfying, OR the most expensive beat sale, you’ve ever done?
the most ive sold a beat for was 500 in texas to an artist i never even heard of but he had the money to back up what he was doing right then and there.

Who are your biggest influences?
zaytoven is the top one of them all tbh, metro booming, tm 88, mpa judo, bracks, cashmoney ap, june james, yib, yung kels, internet money, leaux fi, taz taylor etc the list can go on about who i got respect for in this game, and last but not least myself of course.

Want to give any shoutouts?
shout out to all the producers who aint giving out free beats and that are trying to bust their ass to make this their daily job.

What do you find is the best platform or avenue of selling your beats? and why?
i would have to say youtube and kind of beatstars but mostly youtube.

Do you have any other income streams besides crafting instrumentals? like, do you sell shoutouts or do you also song write, or write books, etc?
i actually song write and i currently am working a job so i can build my dream studio and be in that studio full time.

What is something about you people would be surprised to know?
that my song writing when i record it sounds like what they hear in the industry and it doesnt even look like it would be me on the tracks that i do.

Whats your process for making a beat?
i usually start off with the melody then i add drums and then add the rest of the sounds if needed, and then i tune my melodies with gross beat etc so ik they cant really be mimicked because people willl think that they are stock sounds when they actually arent.

What do your beats normally cost?
for a least about 45 to 50 but to own them 500 plus i keep my publishing unless a more serious artist has a bigger budget.

Any stories on how you got some of your placements?
i used my last 100 bucks to my name to catch a ride with a film director going to texas just so i can get my placements

what are your plans for 2018?
i plan on building up a new youtube and gaining alot of streaming and channel traffic which brings more serious customers also.

Who do you think will part of the new wave in 2018? (producer wise and rapper wise)
lil mosey, comethazine, rip but lil lonnie was on his way to being bigger than he was too, bracks, jay white, tay keith, bloc boy jb, and myself.

Happy birthday TOOM! Interview + 6 beats with Prod. TOOM

First off happy birthday to Prod. TOOM! I can’t believe he’s as young as he is and he’s already killing shxt when it comes to production. This is the producer I was talking about in my post earlier, when I said Maxo Koolin hooked me up with his contact.

Prod. TOOM is someone I have seen on YouTube for a minute and he’s someone I see making a name for himself so I had to reach out to do an interview. Below you can find out more about him and check out 6 of his beats.

credits?
The only confirmed credits I got is with Lil Slump because he posted a snippet on his Instagram, I also got work with Sad Frosty and Lil Boom on the way.

 

How old are you? 
Y’all will probably be surprised when you hear this but I’m only 13.
funniest reason/excuse a rapper ever gave you for not having the money for a beat on time?
Some guy said he would pay me next Tuesday when he gets his paycheck, and then when he didn’t send it, I asked him where the money was and he acted like he didn’t know me, haha.
Where are you from?  
I’m from Boston MA, in the United States.
How long have you been producing? Why/How did you get into it?
I’ve only been producing for half a year. I got into it because I use to make trash dubstep songs on GarageBand and I listened to a lot of beats and when I tried it, it just clicked.
When did you know you made it? or that this could be an actual career for you?
I kinda figured out I could use this as a career when I started making a decent amount of money consistently. I now make about $50-150 a week and I’m still a small producer.
Can you tell us about (me and the readers) the coolest, or most satisfying, OR the most expensive beat sale, you’ve ever done?
The most expensive beat sale I ever did was an exclusive purchase for $200 because the buyer didn’t read the price tag and went along with it, haha.
Who are your biggest influences? 
My biggest influence producer-wise is probably Ronny J. All of his beats go hard and his style of beats can make anything sound good.
Want to give any shoutouts?
I’d like to shout out all of the Skerbie Klan, mainly Sad Centaur, MarvinTheMartian, and Windxws because they are all growing at similar speeds as me and make fire beats too. (And Maxokoolin for giving you my email lol)
What do you find is the best platform or avenue of selling your beats? and why?
Right now, I think that Youtube is the best way of selling beats. I’ve tried to use BeatStars and TrakTrain but the most rappers look for beats on Youtube. Youtube also gets the most views and you get much more feedback on it.
Do you have any other income streams besides crafting instrumentals? like, do you sell shoutouts or do you also song write, or write books, etc?
I sometimes sell reposts, if they really good I post them for free but It doesn’t happen a lot haha. I also mix vocals for a price.
What is something about you people would be surprised to know?
Something that people would be surprised at is that I used to make beats on Garage Band. I made like twelve of the beats on my channel from Garage Band lol.
Whats your process for making a beat?
My process is to sample something or make a melody, lay down the hi-hats, kicks, claps, snares, etc. I usually do the 808s last. Then I mix it, then I lay it out and add my tag and automation clips.
What do your beats normally cost?
My beats normally cost 20$ for an mp3 lease, 30$ for a custom, and 100$ for an exclusive WAV.
Any stories on how you got some of your placements? 
I got Lil Boom on a beat because I posted a snippet of my “Take On Me” sample on Instagram and everybody tagged him a bunch of times and I guess he found it.
What Hardware or software do you use? is there any reason why you like to particularly use what you use?
I use Fruity Loops Studio 12, (the newest version). I like this because I can make the hardest beats at the quickest speed, and the mixing and distortion features sound really good.
What are your plans for 2018?
My plans for 2018 is to get 80K subs and get Lil Pump on a beat.
Who do you think will part of the new wave in 2018? (producer wise and rapper wise)
Producer-wise, I’d say Reddrum, Izak, Murda Beatz, and the Skerbie Klan. Rapper-wise I’d say Ohtrapstar, Icy Narco, Comethazine, and Lil Slump.
