How To (Actually) Get On Wordstar Hip Hop, XXL Mag, & Pigeons And Planes

Written by Omari

Getting your music on blogs like Worldstar Hip Hop, XXL Mag, Pigeons And Planes, Indie Hip Hop, Upcoming Hip Hop, The Rap Fest, Hip Hop DX, and Underground Hip Hop Blog can be extremely competitive. These tips on submitting your music can help!

1. WORLDSTAR HIP HOP SUBMISSIONS

There are a few ways this can be done.

  1. The free way - Firstly, let me just say that if you don't have a buzz already (at least 40,000 legitimate views on a video), they aren't going to post you. These guys get millions of hits a day and tons of submissions. Free isn't always smart, but if you want to submit for free to Worldstar Hip Hop, you can do so at http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/vsubmit.php
  2. Pay them directly - This is easily the most expensive option, but it does guarantee a feature. This will cost no less than $750. If you have the money to spend and already have a very (and I do mean very) legitimate and proven business model of R.O.I., I'd say it could be worth it. The problem is, most artists don't have a legitimate music marketing strategy. Here is the link to submit though: http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/video-guide/
  3. The sweet middle ground - Chances are you don't have $750 and that if you submit for free, they likely won't accept it. However, you can try promoting your music yourself with a legitimate music promotion service outside of WorldStar and build a buzz. Then try submitting later after you've gotten your numbers up.

2. XXL MAG SUBMISSIONS

Much like Worldstar Hip Hop, there is a 3 tiered system you can use to submit. Chances are being featured are still free, paid, and then the middle ground.

  1. Free music submissions - You can always submit for free at [email protected]
  2. Paid advertising - Again, if you know what you're doing in terms of getting a return on your money, then this may be ok, but DO NOT think that streaming revenue is going to make all your money back. If you need more tips on how to make money with your music, then I suggest watching our free webinar here. The paid advertising company XXL Mag uses is http://www.townsquaremedia.com/national-media/advertise
  3. The Sweet Middle Ground - Again, you can always just go to a music promotion company yourself and not have to rely on getting accepted to a blog. Click the button below for some options

3. PIGEONS AND PLANES SUBMISSIONS

Pigeons and planes is a bit harder to find exact pricing for, but there are still some helpful links we can point you to.

  1. Free music submissions - They do it slightly differently than the first two. You can submit your music at [email protected]pigeonsandplanes.com or they have a reddit set up at https://www.reddit.com/r/pigeonsandplanes 
  2. Paid submissions - We found an advertising company for them, but not sure if that translates directly into features on the site. It is worth a shot at https://www.complexnetworks.com/
  3. The Sweet Middle Ground - As usual, you can promote your music yourself. Click the button below for some organic music promotion options.
