Hip Hop Mixing & Mastering
For $40-$60 (typically) I can make your doubles sound fuller, give your hook and verses their own “vibe”, add T-Payne effect (if desired), and set levels and master to make the song loud.  Mixing a trackout session (from someone else’s beat), fixing pitch and timing issues can take a little longer, but of course you will know the cost up front.

Trackout Mixing with My Beats FREE (no extra charge) (basic mastered mixes are typically $40-$60)
Just send your vocal tracks, I’ll pull them into a copy of the full session of the beat.  Trackout mixes are  key to making your track sound clean and professional.  Normally you pay the producer and the mixing engineer more for trackout mixes, but when you mix with the producer (me) it’s FREE!

Customization of Beat Arrangements (typically $20-$30)
Want the hook twice the last time?  The second verse to be shorter than the first and third?  Maybe you only WANT two verses?  Is the beat hitting hardest when the story you are telling is hitting hardest?  Are there sound effects (like a car motor, gunshots, sirens, etc) that would  accent what you are saying ?  These are tools the pros use to make their songs have maximum impact.  You can, too.

Fully Custom Beats From Scratch (typically $50-$100)
Say you wrote a hook melody and you want an instrument to play that melody in your beat.  I can build you a beat that meets the arrangement, vibe, tempo, and melody of the lyrics and hooks you’ve already written.  I can also build a beat to replace mix-tape beats so you can create an original song from a raps you’ve already recorded to a mix-tape beat.
