This is a very common concern. At 4FOURPLAY ENTERTAINMENT , if someone were to purchase exclusive rights while you are leasing a beat, you keep your rights to continue distributing your song until either (a) you run out of distributions or (b) your term expires. I cannot speak for other producers here, but I believe this is the most fair way to treat this situation.
Again, I can answer this question only for my terms at 4FOURPLAY ENTERTAINMENT. The simple answer is yes, you may submit for and receive radio play while on a lease, but the Standard Lease limits the amount of radio play to 10 spins. If your song begins to receive national attention while on a lease, I ask that you please contact me immediately so we can discuss exclusive rights or other options which would be more suitable for such a situation.
Yes, if you are currently leasing a beat, and would like to add more distributable copies to your total, you can purchase another lease at any time. You may also purchase exclusive rights at any time, and I will deduct the amount you have spent on leasing the beat from the exclusive rights total. I hope that clears up any questions, concerns, or worries you may have had about buying beat leases on the internet.
Your beats will be sent to your email immediately after purchase. No more waiting!
Yes! There maybe one “4FOURPLAY” tag in the intro for branding purposes, the rest are removed completely.
Yes! When you sign up you get access to complementary free beats.
You allow me unlimited streaming on a leased beat but limits physical sales of the beat. What if the beat is bought out already exclusively when I am trying to get streams for the same beat that I leased?
Buying exclusive doesn’t cancel anyone else’s lease.
How do I reach the individual or party who purchased exclusive rights to your beat, to seek permission for me to release music using that exclusive instrumental sold?
You don’t have to do that because buying exclusive doesn’t cancel anyone else’s lease. They can not get mad at a cpl artist who may have used the beat on a mixtape. They already know they purchased a beat that could have been leased.
I bought a beat pack containing several beats. Majority of them were bought out exclusively. What do I do then? Am I still allowed to release the music on streaming services since I bought the beat pack and if not, what do I do? How do I even get in contact with whoever bought the beat?
Yes you can still stream it. You don’t have to do anything because buying exclusive doesn’t cancel anyone elses lease.
