Times have changed for music producers...

Nowadays, producers sell beats online, or negoiate much less for their beats with major labels, but Timbaland remembers a much different time. 

In a recent interview with Producer Grind, Timbo says he used to get between $300,000 and $500,000 per beat at one point, but the game has changed it's like the wild wild west out there.

“We ain’t come from a world where you send beats; we come from when that b*tch was tailor-made, you understand?

The producer was respected way more. You needed a dope producer as an artist. You needed that, and now you got YouTube. People putting beats, it’s just not the same. It’s just like Wild Wild West out there.”

Check out the full interview below.
