    I have adbrite ads just set up.

    Also have amazon associates but not really sure the best way to incorporate to the site without it seeming like I am blatantly trying to sell something.

    I would try collecting emails using an opt-in form somewhere above the fold - then you can market beat making software or hiphop ebooks etc.

    Buddy, know first your market then create a cost-effective campaign like social media marketing. Create facebook fanpage, tweeter account and youtube...the best 3 among the rest of the social media.

    Regards :)

    Hi

    Create a "best of" section and then put all the stuff into that. So best hip hop artists, best hip hop songs, best hip hop albums, best hip hop clothes, best hip hop drum machines, best hip hop of all time. Then you list with a little bit of info and then you link to the item on Amazon. You are not then selling anything, just recommending where they can go to buy it. If you can put Youtube videos with them that always helps.

    The best music ones get picked up well with the search engines.
