The future of Hip hop: dypublishing

Welcome to dypublishing: Music and hip hop instrumentals and ghostwritten rap lyrics by dypublishing.

The publishing imprint was established by Dylan Yates in 2007 to hold the rights for his music and fiction.

dypublishing is a rapper and Hip hop producer based in Reading, Berkshire UK. He makes beats and sells lyrics for rap songs. Found, but never truly discovered.


dypublishing’s music is underpinned by lyrical minimalism that just does things with the turn of a phrase. At the moment the label is still, as we say in the industry, ‘bedroom-phase’. That’s an analogy for nascent. Primarily we make Hip hop instrumentals and write ghostwritten raps. We also ‘produce’ records in the¬†classical ‘George Martin’ sense of the term (with no classical music association in any way, shape or form).

It’s very much a pure Hip hop classicalist ethos that dypublishing evokes, in that he reveres the art of lyricism and sampling, but that by no means makes him a purist (I’ll be damned if on the way to work me knocking a little bit of 2pac has you labelling your boy old school).

dypublishing creates ghostwritten rap verses and Hip hop instrumentals for aspiring rappers, and I don’t give a damn who knows about it. Think of our imprint as equal parts label and artist.


dypublishing produces Hip hop beats, which can be found on the Beats by dypublishing page and Beatstars.

Dream enabling.

The creative conceit for dypublishing is built around one simple idea; the construction of words as a tool to empower. Language is the business of what dypublishing culivates, harvests, and reaps. We use the power of language to enable the population to dream.
