Thank you to everybody who submitted tracks for the Young Money beat submission.
Over 250 beats were submitted, and amongst them were some certified bangers!
The winner was supposed to be announced yesterday, however due to Young Money’s busy schedule with the tour, the winner announcement will be delayed. 250 beats is more than we expected and quite a lot to go through while touring the country.
I don’t want to offer any set dates as to when the winner will be announced, in case that deadline can’t be met; however I’ll try to arrange it with them to go through all the submissions & choose the winner as soon as possible.
Thanks again and best of luck to everybody who entered!
Can you introduce yourself a bit and tell us what it is that you do and who you represent?
I go by the name of E. I own and run The Trafficker Management.
We manage several producers, most notably: MegaMan, Tommy Gunnz and Boi-1Da. We also manage one rapper, Richie Sosa.
What’s the big difference for you as a manager, representing producers vs representing artists?
I would say managing an artist is a bigger challenge then managing producers.
The reason I say that is; with an artist there are more politics involved. It’s a lot more work and it takes a lot of patience. When handling artists you are not just selling a sonic product but a visual one as well.
Remember, an artist’s career is a lot more complicated than that of a producer. With producers, if they are talented then their beats can be sold.
My theory, is a great record will always find a home, no matter if it is a unknown producer from England or Timbaland. But don’t get me wrong, I do believe producers have a certain image to uphold. I also believe they should be out and about making sure people put a face to their beats.
Producers, Henny & Dow Jones, better known as, Tha Bizness, have been making a lot of noise recently – namely, for their production of Young Jeezy‘s smash hit, “My President (Is Black)“, and Young Money‘s debut single, “Every Girl“.
As producers whose work is quickly taking over your iPod’s storage space, I asked them to share some insight for Producers Week.
Welcome to Producers Week!
Producers Week is a one week themed “event” on MakingTheMogul.com that focuses on the producers.
Throughout the week, I will feature several hit producers and producer managers, offering insight into the business of music production.
Whether you’re just starting out and want to learn about how others started their careers, or you’ve been producing for a few years and feel like you still need further insight into the industry or a bigger opportunity – Producers Week is for you.
This is my first event of the kind on makingthemogul.com, so I welcome any and all comments/suggestions on how to make it better for the next time.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy it!
Now that Producers Week is completed, below is an index of all the features:
As I prepare for Producers Week next week, I felt like something was missing.
I’m already featuring interviews with hit producers, and producer managers to offer incredibly valuable information for aspiring producers looking for some industry insight. But it still felt like something was missing.
Then, I opened up questions for everybody to ask Midi Mafia any questions by leaving them in the comments right here on makingthemogul.com.
Still, I felt like something was missing.
I wanted to offer something else to complete the circle.
You’re already getting incredible insight and information from Producers Week. But what about an opportunity to place your music? That would complete the week.
I won’t lie to you, I completely freestyled this idea about 2 hours ago, so with the little time that I have, I wanted to create something that could benefit any upcoming producer.
So, I made a quick call, and – well, how’s an opportunity to place one of your beats with Young Money sound?
I was sent this video that I MUST share with you all.
Young Money has been around for a few years now (as a group & label), and there have been a few changes in its roster, however 2009 is the year we will finally see the first full-length Young Money album.
