What are type beats? Type beats are instrumentals that have been catered to a specific artist. For example if you go on youtube and type in “type beat” pretty much every artist will come up. From Chief Keef type beat, Young Thug Type Beat, Future type beat, Drake type beat to Clams Casino type beat. You can pretty much search any artist and their type beat will pop up. Type beats is the easier way for a rapper or musician to connect to a producer. All the rapper has to say is “do you have any drake type beats?” and all the producer would have to reply is simply yes or no. I honestly think its a good time saving approach when looking for beats or instrumentals. It cuts out all the unnecessary inquiries some artists or rappers seem to request or search for when they’re looking for a specific type of beat.
