The hip hop world is incredibly competitive, and thanks to the wide availability of recording equipment and software, it’s easier than ever to make your own music. While that’s great for struggling artists wanting to get their music out there, it’s terrible for listeners and labels to sort through to decide who is worth featuring. If you want to see your music on hip hop blogs and have no idea where to start, here are our best tips for getting your music featured.
Do They Take Music Submissions?
Before you bother sending an email with your music attached, did you check to make sure that they accept music submissions? If you waste the time of an editor or blogger, they’ll be less likely to open your emails in the future and probably be upset with you for not bothering to check ahead.
Do You Know the Editor?
Just like with any industry, building a positive relationship with the owner will greatly help you in getting your music featured on their hip hop blogs. If they like you and your music, they will be interested in helping you out any way that they can. Don’t be fake, be genuine and make an effort to help them out with any current projects they’re working on so that they return the favor.
Is the Music Already Available?
When submitting to a hip hop blog, don’t give them music that’s already been released for months to see if they’d like to feature it. Only send exclusive and unreleased music to help the blog get more traffic and something different from everyone else.
Can You Help Promote?
Last but not least, can you help promote the blog? If you have a large social media following and can help promote the blog, their editors and writers will be more interested in featuring your music.
