Answers to some of your Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What is a non-exclusive beat?
    A non-exclusive beat is a beat where the producer still has rights to the instrumental. Non-exclusive beats are for mixed tapes, live shows, and radio commercials ONLY.  The non-exclusive beat can be leased again until it is bought as an Exclusive beat.  Purchasers do not have any rights to this beat.
  2. What is an Exclusive beat?
    An Exclusive beat is a beat that the artist will have full rights to own, no limits. The beat will not be sold again. You also have the right to have the full beat tracked out.
  3. How long do I have to wait for my beat?
    As soon you buy the beats you will receive a download link in an email. If this is your first or second purchase, the email might be in your junk or spam email box, please check it. If you still don’t have the email with your beats, please contact us.
