Beats365 Review!

Can you guys believe it? I just found ANOTHER site offering a ton of beats for nothing more than a one-time fee!

This site is called, and promises 1,000's of the hottest beats in the hottest styles, for just 30 bucks! Also, constant updates and access to record label contacts! Sounds too good to pass up, right? Well, let me give you the run-down real quick.

I paid for a membership, and upon logging in, was able to find tons of beats as advertised. My only problem was the slightly confusing layout. The beats weren't really organized by style as the sales page would leave you to believe. However, you still can't beat the sheer quantity of instrumentals for the price.

The industry contacts were nothing to brag about, as its all info you could find on your own at the record label's official websites. Woo?

Also, updates seem to be a little bit erratic, but they DO happen, so I can't really complain there!

Overall, for what you pay, I would say this website gets a review of 3 and 1/2 out of 5 stars from me! Happy rapping!

Review: Beats2Rap2

If you are an aspiring hip hop/rap artist, you may be considering stepping up your game by purchasing some hip hop beats online. It's a good idea, too, as many producers have put their stuff out there to not only make some money, but to help get those aspiring rappers-to-be on the A-list!

Here's the only problem: rap beats can be expensive!! And complicated, when it comes to stuff like leasing and exclusive rights.

Don't you wish there was a way you could have all the beats you'll ever need right at your fingertips, sorted by genre, and royalty-free for you to utilize?

Well, it may sound like a crazy request on your part, but Beats2Rap2 has you covered! With hundreds of the most top quality instrumentals sorted into over 10 different hip hop music genres, how could you go wrong?!

How do the beats sound, you may ask? Head on over to the site and peep the free samples! In a word, they hit hard and loud, smooth and crisp.

Check it: for a one-time fee of $29.99, all these beats can be yours. Deals like this don't come around every day, emcees!

So for what you get for the price, I give Beats2Rap2 a ranking of 5 out of 5 stars!
