    Default How much do producers take for their beats?

    How much do their beats cost? Iīm just curious. How much does Just Blaze take? Premo? RZA, who doesnt produce much outside WU, how much does he take? Neptunes?! Dr. Dre? Timbaland? Madlib? Pete Rock?

    RZA - $40 g's for a non Wu member, but not often plus anyway hes getting mad money for scoring films now, he probably got 300,000 each for Blade&Kill Bill
    Premo - Usually only gives beats by invatation only, you cant just pay him for one
    Just Blaze - $100 g's
    Neptunes - No idea probably off the scale
    Madlib - Invatation only
    Pete Rock - $10 - 15 g's

    i think dre ranges anywhere from 150, 000 to 1 million dollars and Timbaland's prices are similar to dre's.

    omg, thatīs a lot of money. but true, considering that every neptune or timbaland single is a hit record, they can charge that much. damn, a lot of money.
