Video: AYO The Producer Speaks On Producing “John/If I Die Today” And Not Getting Credit

Video: AYO The Producer Speaks On Producing “John/If I Die Today” And Not Getting Credit | Recording Engineers & Producers not receiving credit | Scoop.it
There is a lot of, "ghost producing," in the industry. More producers need to speak up and get their credit.
Korey Wilson's insight:

My insight on this is you can't trust nobody in the industry, and that before I send of any beat or music to anybody, we would have to sign a contract on the rights to the production.

For this top it's stating how producers can get robbed for their credit/ work as shown in the video and the producer explains who it happened.


In this topic it affects professionals and consumers by being an everyday scenario that happens quite often. Each day other famous producers are always taking credit for the up and coming producers work just by being more famous than they are. It can be beneficial and also a let down at the same time, because you might get some compensation from a big label for actually making the beat, but you won't reap all you deserve by having someone else's name on you work instead of your own.

Korey Wilson's insight:

My insight on this article is things were different back in the day when it came to producers and engineers. Now it's different, I used to think the producers was the beat maker, but now there are so man positions for a producer, same with engineers.

!llmind Explains Why Some Producers Don't Receive Proper Credit

!llmind also discusses technology's impact on producers and where he feels the art of production is headed.
Korey Wilson's insight:

I agree with !llmind, it's very easy for a upcoming producer to not receive credit for their production because your not sending the beat directly to the artist. Everything now is through email, and like !llmind said sometimes the A&R's or the Artist don't care or forgot your name.

This interview with "!llmind" gives inside information of how you could get overlooked in this industry. Being a Producer, he tells how important it is to pay attention to details. He also explains how new technology is helping engineers in the music industry today.

Kyle Barry's curator insight, March 16, 12:01 AM

I think this is the best example how networking and building relationships is a must for it to work out well in the music industry. There's nothing better in rap music then a artist-producer relationship, the Atlanta rap scene has really come to respect their producers by going as far as crediting them as the primary artist of the album. If other producers follow suit, they could find the same success as a,"Metro Boomin," or," Mike Will Made It." Hip Hop DX has made a name for itself up there with Complex & The Source for rap media because it's been around digitally for just as long as the big competitors. This is another source that only quotes directly from the individual they speak upon, again with industry professionals coming and in and doing interviews.

Nicki Minaj and Producer Red One Sued for Allegedly Stealing 'Starships' Beat From Chicago Producer Clive Tanaka | Recording Engineers & Producers not receiving credit | Scoop.it
Hip-hop stars take note: If you lift a beat from anyone, no matter how obscure the artist, they will find out after your track becomes a huge single. In the most recent case, Chicago electronic artist Clive Tanaka has alleged in a lawsuit that Nicki Minaj and producer Red One (among others) stole the beat from his "Neu Chicago" track for the rappers' single "Starships."
Korey Wilson's insight:

My thoughts on this is I feel like the producer who had control of Nicki Minaj song "Starships" should of reach out to  Cilve Tanka and give credit on the melody they sampled.

My opinion on this is that if you are a beat maker, then you need to take the extra steps to protect your msic. Instead of saying someone stole your song, unless you actualy made the whole beat and they actually "stole it".

Credit Where Credit's Due-Proper crediting for producers, engineers, musician and songwriters

Credit Where Credit's Due-Proper crediting for producers, engineers, musician and songwriters | Recording Engineers & Producers not receiving credit | Scoop.it
For producers, engineers, musicians and songwriters, proper crediting is the lifeblood of a creative career. It's how the world knows what you've done, and it can mean the difference between a ringing phone and a silent one. Correct crediting also facilitates royalty payments and determines eligibility for awards including the GRAMMY. Recently, as the music industry began reinventing itself and its
Korey Wilson's insight:

I agree with the author of this article, it is very important for anybody in the audio industry to get proper credit for what they produced. If you don't receive proper credit nobody would never know what you've done.
