Some Off Topic Venting: HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO HANDLE GUYS WHO JACK MY BEATS OFF of SOUNDCLOUD?
Had this guy, wanted to buy a beat. I was like, okay, cool. But then I saw, he already jacked the shit before hand, recorded over it, put it on his profile as his song publically AND then asked for permission and prices. I just hate that all the time. It Happened before.
Here's an analogy: It's like me, going to the mc's house, ripping pages out his rhyme book and then asking, 'can I cop that'?. I was like, yo, not cool, because you shoulda asked me BEFORE, BUT here's the deal and Told him a price.
He was like, 'yeah that's cheap, but no deal, since YOU had an attitude before'. Attitude? Me? Yeah right! Just for demanding some decency of the guy I am the asshole now? WTF is wrong with people nowadays?
I am seriously thinking about turning all my beats to "private"… but what's the use? Maybe some BS Voice Over all the time? Or some 8 Bars per Beat only type shit? I don't know. I am really disappointed about that shit sometimes.
SO, how you handle situations like these. What are your experiences?
