Type Beat | The Corporatethief Beats | 100% Royalty Free

The type beat genre with online hip hop beats is a debatable topic. Some music producers think it’s great of explaining a specific instrumental to hip hop artists. While other beat makers feel that you are stealing the sound of another producer. There is no getting around the fact that when rap artists go online looking for rap instrumentals they usually look for a specific rap artist followed by the words.

What Is A Type Beat?

A type beat is where underground beat makers create hip hop instrumentals in a style similar to a specific rap artists. Using the phrase attached to specific rap artist gives the up and coming artist a familiarity with that given instrumental.

If you take for example the artist Drake, a Drake beat might be a mixture of different styles of instrumentals. Some of which would include, trap beats, old school beat, sample beats and rnb beats.

If you take artists like The Migos, Gucci Mane and Future, ninety-nine per cent of the time these artists only ever rap over modern trap beats.

 Then if you pick hip hop artists like 2 Pac, Biggie or Nas style instrumental, you will quickly understand that this is a old school or sample type instrumental.

Additional Product Details And FAQ

Why Do You Make Type Beats?

Inspiration has to come from somewhere. Whether or not the attribution of specific artists plus the phrase,is associated with it or not. Most of the time when I go to make any type instrumental I am looking for the elements of what makes the beat stand out. 

If I removed the attribution of associated with any of the beats that I have produced nobody would know where my inspiration came from. I don’t believe in completely copying the music that has inspired me. That is never my goal. My focus is to place myself right there in the studio with an influential rapper.

Here I am creating a more creative mindset to see what type of instrumentals I could make if I had been commissioned to do so. Inspiration has to come from somewhere.

What Are The Best Instrumentals On Your Site?

Here is a list of instrumentals that I have made that I cherry-picked. These are some of my favourite instrumentals. I will continue to update this list from time to time.

New rap beats will always be found on beat player starting from the top.

Please make sure that you are subscribed to the email newsletter for updates for when we launch new rap beats.


I Can this is a popular Rick Ross Style Instrumental. It was inspired by Lord Knows which featured Drake and Rick Ross. That beat was made by one of my favourite hip hop producers Just Blaze.


My I Can beat takes influence from the Gospel hip hop and old school beats with the drums taking a more modern live event approach.



Freestyle Freedom this is a more modern approach to a neo-soul beat.Inspired by the music producers that make modern hip hop beats that are un-sampled but sound like they have been chopped from a record.


I feel that this particular instrumental is more of a J Cole beat. Taking inspiration from J Coles the last album I feel that I wanted to make something a rap artist could become a storyteller.




Here you will find my latest Xxxtentacion beat which I called Stay Close. 

The beat is a melodic trap beat with a mixture of guitar riff samples backed by a trap drum pattern. 

The undertone of the beat has intricate percussive elements while the core of the beat is built an around a pitched vocal melody.

The majority of Xxxtentacion instrumentals have very little change-ups, here I only created a middle 8 to define certain changes in song structure. 


Daydream is a cut from the Drake instrumental cloth. Again this has a freestyle beat element to the instrumental.

Throwing the lyricist deep into storytelling lyrics. I can hear Drake influences from the lonely piano accompanied by a simple of kilter boom-bap drum pattern.  

To give this beat an old school vibe, I filtered a the piano and played around with a number of reverb effects.

Giving the beat a more old school 90’s sound but still having the Drake More Life feel. Similar to that of a rap artist rapping about his or her past.

What Instrumentals Do You Make?

I make a number of instrumentals inspired by both the producers that make the beats and the artists that raps over them.

Some of which include a Drake J Cole ,  KiD CuDi , Kendrick Lamar ,  Migos , a Weeknd , a Rick Ross type beats and many other artists.

Turn Up {The Migos }

Turn Up is an instrumental that has a dark commercial trap vibe. This instrumental is very current.

I think the angle I was going for with this instrumental is along the lines of a Migos instrumental


The instrumental is very casual, confident and hypnotic.

One the offset it sounds rather repetitious, with very little instrumentation.

But when you are trying to make trap beats in style of Nicki Minaj or The Migos you have to find a very simple hook that rap artist can mould into their own creation. 

Love Child this stems from a synth piano sample that I got from one of DJ Pain 1 beat making Friday sample pack. At that time I feel that Drake and Pusha’s beef was a hot topic. So

I decided to make a Pusha Beat. It starts with an eerie echo piano chord structure.

These piano chords have been heavily processed with reverb and delay.  

Shakin That is a club trap instrumental. Sometimes when trap beats are popular on the first listen I just don’t understand why people are hooked.

Taking, for example, two of Tyga’s Biggest hit “Rack City” and “Taste”.

Both have a very casual trap drum pattern and very little instrumentation.

This was the vibe I was going for in this Shakin that Instrumental.

More along the line of a Tyga beat. I wanted to see what I could do with a very basic 808 drum pattern, mixed with chopped female vocals and simple bell-like melody. 

The result is a very confident summertime club track. Very radio friendly. Short sweet and catchy.

Open Up this instrumental stemmed from my inspiration from Bryson Tiller. I am a big fan of his movement by branding his music trap soul. I think it’s genius.


While this new sound which is really just a mixture of trap and rnb elements combined with Tiller’s vocals makes for a winning formula. I wanted to create a Bryson Tiller that not only had the trap soul element but had real commercial appeal.



Are You Afraid Of The Dark?
Kanye Instrumental Beat
Kanye x Schoolboy Q Type Beat "Afraid

While I don’t agree with every he says or does outside of music, his music continues to evolve.


Here I wanted to create something very abstract. Something doesn’t really know where it’s going or has any true structure.

The 808 baseline twists and turns in beat which gives me the same vibe along the line of a Kanye.


Taking inspiration from their collaboration on the “That Part” Instrumental. If you feel that you are a rap artist that doesn’t sing but would like beats without a hook, this beat is for you.

Say To Me - Rihanna RnB Pop Beat

Rihanna Type Beat Say To Me

Say To Me is an instrumental that I created more of the style of a Rihanna Similar to that of a pop rnb type instrumental.

Here I completely deviating away from the more common trap sound.


Making a beat that isn’t really made for a rapper but a singer.

When I created this beat I wanted to make an instrumental that was similar to the pop record that Rihanna had with Rehab which featured Justin Timberlake.

There is more of ego in my pop as I can showcase my instrumentation more. Compared to my more modern have very little instrumentation so that the rapper can take centrefold.

Not any more. There 2 sampled beats on my are the only sampled beats left on the website. I only kept them up there to show hip hop artists I can still sample records.


But due to promotion restrictions and almost losing my Youtube Channel because of sampled beats and remixes. I no longer use un licensed sampled in my beats.
