At RocBattle.com, producers can sell tracks (commission-free) non-exclusively or exclusively, and battle other producers around the globe for cash prizes and the title of Top Dog.

Dana Stinson AKA Rockwilder and business partner Allen Brown AKA Fat Fingers began working on this site in 2005 and created this site for the growth and development of producers in the Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae and Pop genres.  Most recently the duo has teamed up with Beat Kangz Electronics the makers of Beat Thang Virtual software, and continuing to provide opportunities for striving producers. (Sidebar: Beat Kangz has launch at $30,000 beat contest.)

For many emcees, rappers, lyricists and singers RocBattle.com is the biggest music candy stores one could have ever dreamed of.  Most producers sell non-exclusive tracks for $10-$25.  However, remember non-exclusive means you won’t be the only one using a track.

What's in the fine print?

  • The purchaser plays the 99¢ broker fee to RocBattle which is more than feasible considering the quality of the site. 

  • RocBattle does not scan tracks for samples, so if you are thinking about buying a track for exclusive usage, you may want to keep that in mind.

  • RocBattle has laid out the definitions for non-exclusive usage and exclusive usage very clearly, so producers should feel comfortable from a legal perspective.  Now that doesn’t mean some people won’t try to steal your work, therefore it’s still a good a idea to copyright your work with the US Copyright Office, individually or collectively.

All in all RocBattle has been summed up best by the Roc and Allen -- “RocBattle.com is a very resourceful and credible place for any producer looking to get exposure and reliable feedback.  The site is designed to help improve and further develop the craft of all producers who participate.”

So if you got the best beats, take it to battle...  Put your music where the battle is.
