◎Rapchat的聯合創始人Pat Gibson曾與Big Sean、Wiz Khalifa和Machine Gun Kelly等人一起表演過，並曾把節奏販售給MTV。他告訴Techcrunch「我的音樂已經在YouTube、SoundCloud等網站上獲得了超過2000萬次的播放。我之前花很多時間、精力和資源製作音樂，我創造節奏、寫歌、錄製和混音人聲、製作母帶，然後自己分銷和推廣音樂。但現在有了Rapchat，裡面有來自頂級製作人的超過1000個節奏的資料庫，就像你口袋裡就有一個即時錄音室以及將音樂分銷到全球並被發現的網絡，全部都來自一個免費的應用程式。Rapchat正在透過手機打破音樂的創作、合作、發行和發掘。」
Rapchat, an app to create and share raps, has raised $1.6 million in funding. The Columbus, OH based startup is consistently among the top 50 music app on iOS and Android and has passed 100 million listens since launching in 2013.
Rapchat co-founder Pat Gibson has performed with the likes of Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa and Machine Gun Kelly and sold beats to MTV. "My music has garnered over 20M+ plays across YouTube, SoundCloud and more," he told Techcrunch.
"I grew up loving to freestyle with friends at OU and I noticed lots of other millennials did this too (even if most suck lol) ... at any party at 3am – there would always be a group of people in the corner freestyling," he said. "At the same time Snapchat was blowing up on campus and just thought you should be able to do the same exact thing for rap."
"I spent a lot of time, energy and resources making music," he continued. "I was producing the beats, writing the songs, recording/mixing the vocals, mastering the project, then distributing & promoting the music all by myself. With Rapchat, there's a library of 1,000+ beats from top producers, an instant recording studio in your pocket, and the network to distribute your music worldwide and be discovered.... all from a free app. Rapchat is disrupting the creation, collaboration, distribution, and discovery of music via mobile."
