Lease And Exlcusive (Agreements)
Here at Full Range Beats we offer instrumentals/ beats for lease as well exclusive beats for sale. Sometimes people don't understand the difference between the 2. There's a light explanation on the Home Page. We wanted to be totally transparent so we've included the agreements for the lease and for the exclusive. When you buy rap beats online, or whatever kind/ genre of beat.. When you're searching out instrumentals for sale it's wise to know if you want to lease or get the beat exclusive.
What we tell people in general is, if your just doing a mixtape, not looking to make any money off of the song, then lease is probably best. If you're working on an album or single that you want to monetize (make money from), and/ or plan to shoot a video, etc, then it's best to get the exclusive rights to the beat. This means no one from that point on can "use" the beat, as with a lease.
A lease is more or less borrowing the beat, while Exclusive is more or less buying/ owning the beat.
Hopefully this gives some type of explanation and helps a bit when deciding whether to lease or buy your beat. If you have more questions feel free to contact us.
Hopefully you lease your next hot instrumentals here with us. We're confident we have some of the best instrumental beats available and some of the highest quality!
