Instrumental Connect—the brainchild of Mario Paez, better known as MAPS—is a new brand providing top-quality beats to rappers at all levels. MAPS got his start playing in punk and indie bands before shifting his focus to specialize in hip-hop; that was eight years. Today, he confidently tells AAHH that many SoundCloud rappers have already used his services, most notably Young Sev Da Truth and also FLA Amazin.
Mario states that Instrumental Connect provides “creatives their ultimate need; endless choices of ‘blank’ musical canvases (instrumentals) for them to write to.”
One thing that sets his brand apart is the commercial use of the beats. “Upon download of any beat, the downloader has full, unlimited commercial rights to that beat. No fancy licensing contracts, no limit on where the downloader can use it,” he says. “The beat is completely theirs to do what they want with it.”
With that in mind, there are exclusive options available—dependant on artist budget.
