Twitch, the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers, announced the addition of more than 100 hip hop songs to the Twitch Music Library courtesy of the Rhymesayers label. In addition to infusing the Twitch Music Library with a bounty of hip hop tracks from its stable of marquee artists, Rhymesayers has enabled Twitch to surpass its latest milestone. There are now more than a 1000 songs cleared for Twitch broadcasters to use – double the amount of songs available when the Twitch Music Library launched in January.
Things You Should Know-
As long as you are using a Rhymesayers song openly available through Twitch’s music library, it will not be muted on VODs.
You are welcome to tune into the Rhymesayers channel during your Twitch streams without your VODs being muted. All we ask is that you please help show your support and include our track listing bot in your channel. You can do this by typing !join on the Rhymesayers channel at http://twitch.tv/rhymesayers
If you aren’t tuned into our channel, if you can, we ask that you use XSplit or similar tools to show your viewers which songs are being streamed live.
If you choose to export your Twitch VODs to your YouTube channel, we will allow this, however, our policy is to run ads on this content.
Please note that this is a new addition to the label. As Twitch and the connection between music and the gaming world grows, we will need to adapt.
