Music can often be an expensive craft and especially when you’re an independent rapper or singer, finding beats that you can use for free are worth their digital weight in gold. Releasing free songs, mixtapes and albums is one of the most effective forms of marketing for musicians and fortunately many producers allow their beats to be used for non-commercial purposes without paying for a license. I’m about to let you in on the secret of how you can download thousands of beats right now from some of the best free beats websites online . However, please remember that beats you download for free may only be used by you if the producer or website have stated that it is okay to do so. When in doubt, send the producer a quick friendly email asking for permission to use their beats. It’s also worth noting that most instrumentals that are up on the net for free download will contain vocal tags and be in low quality mp3 format. So if you’re really looking to put out high quality music or want to release a song commercially – that is make money from it – I would highly recommend purchasing a license first.
