You don't.

That’s not how it works...no semi-successful act is going to accept submissions from just anyone.

You’d need recognised management, a proper publisher and existing credits to even be asked to submit songs or beats to top tier artists.

I wouldn't agree with that as most artists do not write anything. Maybe you would have to do the 10° of separation thing but it could end up there.

This doesn't really relate at all to my point. I just said that most, if not all, name artists will not accept unsolicited submissions. IF they're looking for fresh material, their management/label will contact publishers, writer managers and so on that they rate and will ask for submissions. The OP is very naive to the way it works, that's all.

As for artists not writing anything...um...most of the A-list artists I've worked with who have credits as writers do write. Yours is a blanket statement, not based in fact. Have you ever written or worked with any artists on the level of Eminem?

Sure it is I mean you could go to the show and hand him a CD whats wrong with that. There's plenty of people that had the hustle that got tunes on the radio.

Err. So. You think you can go to an Eminem show and “hand him a CD”.

On which planet? Seriously curious! IF you were to meet the guy somehow, sure you could hand someone a “CD”.

Whether they even have the means to play it anymore is another thing.

How precisely do you think you’re going to meet someone to hand them a CD?

It’s quite a bizarre concept - you are aware of the size of these artists right? You don’t exactly do a public meet and greet at stadium gigs.

nothing is impossible...but...

Its a camp.

I know several people here who are well entrenched in that camp. Its about networking and relationships. There is a business side to this too. That access has a value and what are you willing to give up to gain that access? Most of the people in that camp are signed to them. There are a select few that are not. For the most part why should they do one of your beats when they have producers that are signed to them where they can get a bigger piece of the pie...even if you beat is hotter? Also, your stuff has to be blazing. No one is going to jeopardize their relationships for mediocre beats just to help you out or give you a shot...just sayin.

There is a business side to this equation that one way or another has to be dealt with. Not trying to discourage you but rather enlighten.

5 or 6 degrees of separation is true. Keep that in mind
