There is barely any rappers in my country and the singers I know seem to be too busy for me; I need a larger pool of vocalist to draw from but, I'd need rappers in particular. It's going to be difficult to stay motivated as a beatmaker if I don't get a bunch of rappers on board rapping on my beats. I'd work for free (for now) if it could mean some exposure. I think it's obvious that rappers get more attention and credit than producers/beatmaker. I know a lot of people who'd want to get on my beats but, they're not rappers and they all want me to just give 'em a free beat. Now I don't have a problem with giving out a free beat in theory but, it would be nice to get some exposure in return and I know a local vocalist asking for a free beat isn't going to help me in that way (despite what they say).
