Rapfeatures.com is the “Ebay” for hip hop related features, verses and song collaborations.
The idea is to create a global market place; a mix between Elance, Fiverr and Ebay, where music artists can buy and sell “features” online in a secure environment.
What is a “feature”?
A feature is a guest appearance of a musical artist on the song of another artist. The feature can be part of the verse in the song or in the chorus section of the song. A feature can also be part of the instrumental.

Traditionally the exchange of a hip hop/rap verse for money has occurred between record labels through contracts. However the underground market, that comprises of most of the hip hop industry, operates solely on trust and an unregulated code of conduct between artists. Rapfeatures plans to capture this market by providing a trusted online platform.
