On this episode we welcome producer duo Nate & Charity to the show. This talented up and coming production team dropped some gems on us that all up and coming producers could benefit from. They discuss:
Being from different parts of Texas and eventually linking up after being in the same beat battles
What there work flow is like as a production team
What it’s like being a duo where each producer producers in a different DAW (Machine vs. Ableton)
Moving from Texas to Atlanta to pursue better opportunities
Working with CyHi The Prynce on the critically acclaimed “No Dope on Sundays” Album and how they landed their placement on there
Charity specifically discusses navigating in the industry as a female producer
What’s next for Nate & Charity?
Also discussed this episode:
Streaming pay! After rapper Nipsey Hustle shared his streaming income numbers, the entire industry has been buzzing. Should you only put your music on Tidal since they pay the most? Should listeners subscribe to Tidal as he said? WLPWR and Brian Onrea sort this out.
Also sorted out is the concept of producer payment rights and how much you should charge for your beats. This is in respose to Jermaine Dupri’s recent Breakfast Club interview where he talked about a producer selling a beat for $200 that became a huge hit. What’s the issue here? It gets broken all the way down!
