Trap Beats For Sale Produced By The Corporatethief Beats

Today the trap sound in hip hop music is a much more commercial and radio-friendly sound. Some of the significant pioneers of trap beats included Lex Luger, Shawty Redd and Zaytoven, Southside 808 mafia. When Lex Luger and Zaytoven began making trap beat instrumentals in the early 2000s, the sound was very harsh and aggressive. These instrumentals tend to use a lot of brass and orchestral sounds. Trap music has become much more pop and melody based in recent years.

What Are Trap Beats? 

Trap beats are just a sub-genre of hip hop music. During the early 2000’s trap music started to become famous. Back then they were a much more aggressive sound.

Rap music producers made these instrumentals using the drum samples from the Roland 808 machine. These drum sounds were layered with more modern hip hop drum samples.

The 808 kick drum is tuned to provide the bassline of the music and the sub kick sound. Some beatmakers layer in mid-range kick drum sounds to the kick-punch through the mix.

Why Are Trap Beats So Popular?

Trap instrumentals are more popular these days because of hip hop artists like Drake, Future  J Cole. , Wiz Khalifa, Travis Scott, Rick Ross and Meek Mill. These instrumentals don’t sound so harsh or noisey as they once were. There is a lot more melody in trap music now. Even pop stars now like Beyonce and Miley Cyrus sing over this type of genre.

This beat here is one of my new Trap type beat is called Game Over. It stemmed from a guitar riff I had recorded on the guitar into logic. The guitar riff itself wasn’t that special. I began to tweak and manipulate the sound so that it would have something that sounded unique. 

If you listen to that majority of trap type beats today, most of them are pretty minimalists and simple. But there is always something very unique with the hook melody. While the pattern might have some familiarity, the sound used to create the theme is always solitary and rare.

What Tempo or Bpm Is Trap Music Commonly Found At?

These seem to have a common formula. Less is more!!! But most of these sound has been altered and layered with other drum samples to give the kick and snare a more stand out sound. 

The common tempo for trap beats is seen at 130 to 145 bpm. But have also seen trap music producers making in this style of music at half time, which is around 70 bmp. And I have seen other producers creating south music between 160 - 170 bpm.

The instrumentation is always pretty basic. A repetitive basic melody loop, which is almost nursery rhyme in nature. This melody is played most of the time using a synth, bell, guitar or pad sound. Pad chords are used just to hide the empty space in the background. 

Because of the minimalist approach with instrumentation, it’s producers challenge to make a the music sound busy and interesting while remaining open enough for any rapper to rap on. The reason for the simplistic approach to trap beat instrumentals is that most rap artists want to take the spotlight in the song. Having a very busy track can cause a distraction for the hip hop artist.

Making it more difficult to rap too. The drums have common elements too which can be seen with the use of the 808 bass line playing a major role in the structure of trap music. Another element of the drums that are commonly heard include the use of snare rolls and high hat rolls and a very distinct kick sound which carries the instrumental.

What Key Are These Beats In?

There no specific key!

If you have difficulty finding the key of the song you can check the metadata of that track using iTunes.


If the beat hasn’t been assigned by the producer's metadata, you can simply ask them what key their beat is in.Alternatively, you can use a tool called

If the producer has their instrumentals on Youtube or Spotify it will give you bpm and the beats key signature.

Future x Drake Type Beat 2017 Pulse

Pulse this is inspired by Drake and Future. I think the really make great music together. The instrumental has an underlining trap drum structure.

The instrumentation goes against the common minimalist approach. There are a number of different switch ups. Which make give it more life.

Here the extra instrumentation gives the beat a more commercial sound.

If you are in a collaboration with another rap artist, this instrumental would be perfect. 

More Life Drake Type Beat Purpose Energetic Trap Instrumental.

The Purpose: This has to be one of my favourite tracks out of my whole catalouge.

Here I was going for a similar movement to DrakesThe Language Instrumental”.


Here the quick movement of the 808 and the kick drum provide all the most obvious structure.

There is very little instrumentation but there are bell-like melodies and drone-like pads that fill the void of the instrumentation.

trap beat hollywood fool

Hollywood Fool this takes inspiration from the Migos.

There is a ton of space in here for modern trap rappers to rap over.

The instrumentation is very sparse but I pull in and out all the individual elements to act as effect rather than standard instruments.

There are a really good groove and movement provided by the 808 baselines which give the beat some darkness but still has commercial appeal. 


The Gift - Dark Trap Instrumenta

The Gift: This takes a different approach, even though it has a BPM of 145 it sounds much slower.

I was going for a Desiigner or Travis Scott type beat sound here. It has such a darker tone almost a haunting sound. These are the type of beats that I love to make. 

Here in the background a number of vocal chops provide additional transitions and sound effects. 

This helps hide the repetitive nature of the instrumentation

The addition of small pockets of sounds like this also helps define the verse from the chorus for the rap artist.

gunna type hip hop beat

Too Late: This beat was ore of an experiment. I never want to make the same beat over and over again.

I like the way that a lot of music producers are using the guitar and the guitar pedals as sound effects. 

So I made a simple guitar riff and added a ton of distortion and reverb and delay and added a simple trap type drum pattern.

While the guitar sounds very haunting the trap beat when played altogether has more of commercial sound.

Shakin That {Tyga Instrumental}

Shakin That: This is super obvious as a Tyga type beat. Similar to that of Rack City Instrumental or his new Taste Instrumental.


Instrumental Music like these are super difficult to make as you need to have a hook with very little else in the instrumentation

The vocal chop sample provides the hook element that you here in the majority of Tyga’s instrumentals.


Turn Up: Here I looked very obscure sounds that you won’t here in any hip hop beats.

I was going for a Nicki Minaj or a Cardi B type beat. 

Here I can also even here the Migos on this instrumental.

The music has a lot of very little elements in the mix which make a very simple trap beat sound very complex.


The Rise:  This is inspired by KID Cudi's later work kick and the snare sound pretty basic, not even that trap sounding.

It’s when you mix the 808 baselines and the very busy high has into the mix that it has a more modern trap type music sound.

It sounds in the background is a mixture of a vocal chop and Chinese loon.

These two obscure sounds mixed together provide the hook element that most modern trap rappers look for in tracks like this.

Free Trap Beat - Hollywood Fool - BPM 140

The Hollywood Fool beat is inspired by The Migos. Quavo makes most of the beats for the Migos. His beats have a lot of open space for a rapper to shine. 

Here in this beat, I tried to create which has little more diversity with the structure but still carries that open space for a rapper work with. 

I think the beat has more of a Metro Boomin meets The Migos sound as the 808's and the drums change up in various sections while the main instrumentation is very basic and doesn't over dominate the instrumental.

Alotta Class - Trap Instrumental Download BPM 170

I am a big fan of Rae Sremmurd, even though they fall into the same category of a modern trap music , I can still hear the subtle difference that makes them much more creative an unique compared to that of generic trap music. 

That's what I tried to create here with the Lotta Class trap beat

I have a very busy string section riff in the background while the pad sounds act like effects which keep the instrumental open, but removes the emptiness.

The 808 and the drums are really fast so this is a beat which is for a rapper that really wants to rap fast in specific sections of the beat. The snare rolls and high hast are extremely busy which help create the energy behind the beat.

The Gift - Download This Dark Trap Beat BPM 120

I love making beats like this. Dark trap beats have so much more of a mood and emotion. I think that the key to making popular trap music is to find very weird unique sounds.

Once you have that unique sound you build the whole trap beat around it.

That's why trap producers like manipulation samples, like pitching vocal chops, and reversing melodies or half timing melodies. 

The main synth sound here is very eerie without piercing the vocals of the artist.

There slight pockets between the riff for a rapper to spit some bars, while vocal chops and the one-shots make the trap beat busier than it actually is.

What You Know - Free Migos X Cardi B Type Trap Beat BPM 85

Trap rappers are going to love this beat as it has a very fast sound drum pattern but the BPM is only at 85 which allow rappers to have slower verse but still have that club tumping 808 drum patter to rally the club.

I tried to create a trap beat similar to what Nicki Minaj and the Migos would rap over.

The flute sound has become increasingly popular within the construction of trap beats. This is some that the Migos, Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin popularised.

So the whole beat is carried by this simple but infectious flute melody, while backed buy busy sounding trap drums.
