    Seems like song writers and music makers are the ones getting paid. A great rags to riches back to rags story is Scott Storch. Or like Dr. Dre and have people make your music and suddenly you are the producer. A current favorite just because its different and more on social media, Araabmuzik. He has a gimmick and uses it well. Realistically how much are those beat maker videos making on youtube trying to sell their cloned beats?

    ^^ nah. there is a big undertoe of beatsmiths selling beats.

    Honestly, theres not much to be made... otherwise i'd be doing it. I had to stop going as hard in music because at some point along the way, the dream fizzled. No, not my desire to "make it" or make a living off of my passion.... literally the dream fizzled. There is no more light at the end of the tunnel, i'm convinced. Its frustrating to hear people talk about "don't give up on your dreams"... nobody ever addresses the possibility of the existence of the dream disappearing. It's frustrating. LARGE amounts of money were being thrown around like nothing at all 10-15 years ago. Now its a ghost town with boards on the windows.
    I've had offers and i've seen cracks of light... but I haven't moved forward with them as of yet on grounds of artistic integrity.. or just artistic freedom basically. who knows tho.
    Anything short of playing live in front of 15,000+ is moot. Live shows is the only way.

    With that being said, and back to your question.....
    The more ive been learning about marketing.... it can be done. If you are of a certain talent level on the beats, you can make serious money. Smokeygotbeatz comes to mind.... if a guy like that had a serious marketing mind behind him, he could make SERIOUS dough just off of leasing beats to anyone that raps and is paying for beats. its all about finding those people who need beats.

    good luck sir.
