CashMoneyAP Net Worth 2020, Bio, Profile, Career, and Achievement.
CashMoneyAP is a French songwriter, YouTuber, and record producer, who is best known internationally for what is commonly referred to as type beats on video streaming giant YouTube.
He’s also a major success on BeatStars—the platform where artists can buy and sell beats.
CashMoneyAP was born on May 19, 1995 in Guadeloupe. CashMoneyAP’s real name is Alex Petit.
As a teenager he experimented hard with music, learning about different styles and teaching himself how to emulate the biggest trends in music.
One of those trends caught his attention, and in 2011 he posted his first beat to YouTube. It was a major hit, and over the next 9 years, he amassed a whopping 177 million views on the popular video streaming platform.
With over 700k subscribers on YouTube and 500k followers on Instagram, his type beats have been a major hit with rappers, singers, songwriters, and spoken word artists—as well as for background music in YouTube videos.
CashMoneyAP is one of a new breed of online entrepreneurs, hustling hard to reach the next generation of musicians, artists, and performers.
When he started out on YouTube, monetization opportunities were huge. Now, with low royalty payments threatening the industry, it takes his kind of hustle to survive—and thrive.
CashMoneyAP sells his beats online—predominantly through BeatStars—and uses YouTube as his key marketing tool.
With almost ¾ of a million subscribers and over 150 million views, he’s also caught the attention of major industry names like Lil Skies, Migos, and Young Thug.
It’s not some kind of fluke, either. The marketing genius is in the pudding—or the title, in this case.
Each beat is titled with the name of a rapper who’s style suits the beat—Young Thug, 21 Savage, Travis Scott, etc. CashMoneyAP essentially gives a shout out to the rappers he hopes will hear the recording.
It may not be a new concept—but it is a successful one. It gives producers the opportunity to reach artists directly, and artists the opportunity to cut out weeks of studio sessions trying to find beats they like.
The artist effectively just goes online, searches YouTube for some appropriate
te beats—conveniently titled with their own name, in many cases—buys the beat, and records vocals.
