FAQ

Below are questions that we at MalekBeats are frequently asked. To save you time, we wanted to provide you with answers for these questions in one location. If you don’t find your question below, please contact us.

When will I get my beat(s) after I complete my purchase?

You will receive an e-mail immediately after your purchase is complete with a download link to the beat(s).

NOTE: If you purchase the Tracked Out license, you will receive an mp3 version of the beat immediately and the Tracked Out version within 24 hours of your completed purchase.

Will the beat I purchase be removed from the site?

No. A lease is similar to a rental and you do not purchase the rights to the beat but rather the right to use the beat. Therefore, when a non-exclusive lease is purchased the beat will remain on the website available for others to purchase. In the event that you purchase exclusive rights, the beat will be permanently removed from the website.

Why are there vocal tags on the preview beats on the website?

The vocal tags are only on the previews of the beats for protection. The tags will be removed after completed purchase of the beat(s).

How do I purchase beats?

1.) Browse the Beat Store, and click the name of the beat you want.

2.) Select which Buy Option you want and click Add to Cart to add the beat to your cart. If interested in more than one beat, click Continue Shopping and repeat this step.

3.) Hit Checkout or click the cart at the top right of the site, and pay through your preferred method of payment.

4.) You’ll receive a download link for the purchased beat(s) immediately after making your purchase.

What can I use the beat(s) for after I make my purchase?

All beats here at MalekBeats.com are for non-exclusive leasing rights only. That means you can use them for independent albums, mixtapes, performances, and demos. However, exclusive rights are available as well. You can find more information here.
