    I thought YouTube partners earned money directly from YouTube?
    It effectively is but not exactly. Google buys ads, you put the space up for the ads they bought, you get paid for it, but it's Google adsense rather than YouTube.

    Made about 2k selling hip hop beats on YouTube, way before monetisation was a thing.

    Not directly. The standard way of earning through YouTube is via adsense. Google places ads on videos and you get money when the ad is clicked. That's the super simple way of looking at it. I don't know the exact business model but the money most likely comes from Google accounts, not YouTube, even though YouTube is owned by Google.

    Wow, so many views

    Edit: What is your youtube channel if you don't mind me asking?

    Link for you. Just don't get too excited, it's really nothing special. Entirely unimpressive
