No just thought it was a clever concept and there is some great work on there ... make you realize that there are lots of Pharrell 's and Storch's out there .... easy to see it is all about having the name ..... if Pharrell or Storch went under an allies on this site and asked a $100 bucks for a beat would anyone recognize it was so much better . It would be interesting to see one of them put their next beat up under another name and see if they could even sell it ... it has become all about the hype . snap yo fingers .. now there's a piece of work dfegad

thats bull****----yes, i'd be able to tell the difference between your average dude and a real hitmaker like pharrell or storch----not to say that once in a while, any given producer can't get lucky and make a magic track, but dude's like storch and pharrell do it CONSISTANTLY, and thats whay they are who they are... and i'm not talking just grimy ill beats for hiphop heads, i'm talking mass appeal, genuine hit music....i have yet to hear an unknown display the ability to do that-------and that includes the beats i heard on the rocwilder site

thats like saying jordan only made it into the NBA cause he was on North Carolina... talented dudes are gonna find themselves in those situations, you can't hold it against them like they had some sort of handicap...

Obviously, this is like a rent a beat type of setup. Kind of a good idea. I think I will check it out. But I wonder what is the catch?

Does anyone have any bad experiences to share?

Yo, it takes a mix a talent and promotion. Building your name is just as important as the beats you can throw out. That's kinda why it's so hard to break huge, it's all a big complex balancing act.
