    I am in the process of making a promo video for my business. I have found a fantastic instrumental of a popular hiphop track I want to use for the background music.

    Will youtube ban my ass if i use this track? I am not looking to monitise the video with adense, its just a promo for my local business. I understand that there might b a link to iplayer for purchasing the song in the description of the video.

    I don't think Yt will ban your ass, But the owner/publisher of the track can take action on your video and eventually ask Yt to remove it.

    They won't. Use a less popular song if you want to give your video a higher chance of lasting on YT.
