Are diss songs good for Hip-Hop?

The whole Meek Mill and Drake feud is hot right now. Drake dropped two diss tracks that garnered mixed reviews. Then yesterday, Meek Mill dropped his response. Diss tracks have been in Hip-Hop for a long time. I think it is good for the genre. Battling and bragging is a huge part of the music. It keeps things exciting, and brings out the creativity of each artist. As long as the songs do not escalate into real violence, I am totally fine with it. Keep them coming! Of course, there are artists who really do live "that life", who may want to take the beef way too far.

These days there are a ton music promotion companies that do all kinds of services to get your music out there. There are some that offer free services, but keep in mind, to get anything good done, you are gonna have to spend money. Nothing is free. Music is a business, never forget that!

Some companies offer the following services:
Email blasts-They will blast your music via email to targeted fans, or music industry people.
Radio play-They will offer you spins on radio, either internet or regular.
Streaming services- They will put your music on a streaming site.
StreetTeam services-They will pass out promotional material for you at various clubs and events.

Get a warm sounding mix, like music used to have!












Many music freaks will tell you that music has lost it's warmth these days. With everything digital, the sound that recording to tape provided, is long gone. Well, here is a nice trick if you still have access to an old school reel to reel tape machine. You can record everything in Pro Tools, then mix it, and bounce it to 2-track tape, then bounce it back to digital for mastering. You still get the convenience of tracking digitally, while also replacing that warm tape sound. Try it out!

Improve your song mix with this exercise!

Getting the perfect mix is important to make a hit record. One training exercise you can do is to pick a song and get a pair of headphones. Then take a piece of paper and on the top of the paper write "left" on the left side of the paper, "middle" on the middle of the paper, and "right" on the right side of the paper. Then start the song. Listen to the mix carefully, write down what you hear on the left, middle, and right side of the mix in the headphones. You will be surprised at what is panned left, and right. You may hear things you might have never noticed before, such as a hi-hat, or vocals. Do this with several songs. Make sure to always do it with headphones. This will train your ears to listen to a mix better, plus it can give you ideas on mixing your own songs.

Try and create music that is timeless

 If you notice popular music today, it all has a similar feel to it. Every once in a while something fresh sounding gets released, it becomes really popular, then other artists copy that format. So then we are back to things sounding the same again. If you wanna create music that will sound different from the rest, stop listening to the radio for a month. Then during that month, write songs about whatever comes to mind. The point is, you will not have the influence from other popular songs currently on the radio. You see, original music is timeless, unique music is also timeless. That is what you want to create! That is what the fans need! Try it out.

Having different mixes and edits of your song can be beneficial

music-business-tips
When you release a new single, you should always have a few different mixes and edited versions of your song. This is for when you release your single to radio and TV. If your song has adult subjects, or swear words, you should always include a clean version for radio. You should always have an instrumental of it. Sometimes DJ's will play instrumentals in the background when they are talking. Television shows also like instrumentals. You should always have an acapella version as well. This is just the vocal parts of the song with no music. Sometimes DJ's will take just the vocals, and mix them to a new beat for a remix. So, when you service radio, club DJ's, and other people who need your new single, be sure to include all of these versions of the song. It may help you sell more downloads.
