Re: The Collab

Is the plan to record our bars then send the acapella to Byronz?

If so, sooner the better with the beat selection.

Yes. The beat we have right now is this: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/482722

If there is something else we can agree on by midnight tonight then we'll get a different one, otherwise that'll be the official collab beat.

Just as a reminder, there are less than 11 hours left to sign up for this thing! Remember you have to be a part of this competition to sign up! Here is the official list so far, if you aren't on it and want to be, then PM me!

1. Teqneek
2. Senator John Dean
3. Fat Beats
4. Wyze-Stingray
5. Scuare
6. Kill Bill Volume 2
7. Gasmasq
8. PiGPEN
9. Emergency
10. Suddlenuance
11. Byron

Remember, PM me to get a spot. If you post something on here I can't guarantee I'll see it/interpret it as an official nod to add.

You'll notice something in my background that's not in yours...furniture. That has a lot more to do with getting girls than writing a bunch of songs talking about staring at the stars. I listened to that shit and didn't learn shit about SHIT. Do you understand me? I came out from that experience stupider than when I came in. At least you could learn something about effing mixing your gay ass voice over beats from my video.

How's the closet studio fast food life treatin ya, Gas? Ya make ASSistant manager yet?

If getting girls is the best thing you can think of to aspire to in this life that's on you, I'm not judging.
Furniture? C'mon bitch, you can do better.

I see what did there,capitalizing the first three letters of assistant because it's a swear word. Gosh you're adorable.
And no, I cook at a restaurant now. How's the life of a jobless, directionless protester going? Playin lots of hackie sack with your hipster buddies?

I love it. SJD and Gasmasq, two politically orientated rappers who think about the world but don't make pretentious bullshit, both serious about rapping, going from job to job get placed together in a rap battle. Previously, they've made jokes and even complimented their opponents, hell, even in the grudge matches Gas proclaimed himself "humbled" and SJD has declared that KillBill makes dope shit, maybe doper than his own.

So these two thoughtful, fun, charismatic personalities are probably against each other in the semis. What happens?

BITCH FEST.

Dude, Gas is about as charismatic as a broken pencil. Allow me to elucidate with a quote from a song of his:

Sittin in the park
It's startin to get dark
Lookin up at the sky
I'm seein all of the stars
And I love em
I wanna be one of em it's hard
BECAUSE I'M FLIPPIN BURGERS AND FRIES
AT MY FAST FOOD JOB

Yeah, I coulda put that in the battle but I don't friggin need it. I'm about to throw a wet kitten in this fag's face.

Less than four hours until the collab signup is over. PM me if you want a spot. If you've already PM'd me and received a confirmation, then you're in. If you haven't received a confirmation and you're NOT on that list above, then make sure to let me know before midnight eastern time if you want in.

At that time, I'll post the official complete list of people on the track, the rules for submitting your verse (deadline, format, etc...), and everything else that will be important to know for anyone on this thing.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe he was joking. Since an upper-case C and a lower-case c are completely identical for purposes of this discussion.

Lol if mommy and daddy paid for my college too I wouldn't have had to work. Gosh, I'm such a loser for furthering my education.

On a food service note, most companies use a charbroiler now for burgers and a... wait for it... FRIER for fries. Crazy huh? No flipping of anything other than the disses you recycled off Madflex last year and probably every other rapper you google because you're an unoriginal bitch.

Smack my lips, you're gonna be a tasty pussy to eat.

Verse Deadline:
Monday, April 30 at 11:59:59 p.m. EDT

Writing Guide:
Try to focus your verse on how awesome Clabtrap emcees are/us as a team.

Also, it's CLABTRAP. NOT Clap trap, not clab track, not clap track. It is CLAB TRAP.

Official Verse Rules (If you ignore these, your verse will not be included):
No dissing other emcees in the competition.
Each emcee gets exactly eight bars.
Vocals need to be ONLY your voice, no beat.
Only do doubling if you absolutely sound like shit without it. If you must
send me doubled vocals, then put it on one track. There are going to be
enough tracks as it is without having multiple for one emcee.
Tell me whether or not you used compression/EQ on your voice,
and do NOT add reverb. I'll add reverb to the proper amount
that suits the song, we don't want one person sounding like
they're spitting in a huge concert hall and another sounding
like they're in a bathroom.
I'll take care of the compression if you want me to. I may need
to EQ slightly regardless of if you used it (EQ) or not in order to
make it fit properly in the song. Don't worry, you can absolutely
trust me with your vocals. I won't make you sound like shit.
This is basic, but please don't clip. I'd much rather have vocals that
are too low than too loud.

Send me your vocals by themselves, or on the proper placement on the track (with silence beforehand).
I don't have a problem with matching them up with the beat, and I may have to
do it anyway if someone ends up dropping out. It's your call on this one.

PM your vocals to me in wav format.
MediaFire and Dropbox are the best links for sending vocals (in that order).

Bonus! Song Introduction:
If you want, you can record an intro. I'll choose the most appopriate
one to put in the actual song. If nobody submits one or they all suck,
then I will literally record myself taking a shit and use that.

Let's get going. Remember to PM me your verse. I will not accept it as a reply on here. Let me know if you have any questions.

And then there were 11.

I don't like the beat either. I think this could use a lot of work with AKACCMIOF's review in mind.

If this is meant to just sound like a thrown together lil basic collabo then it doesn't matter. If y'all want a quality product, we're going to have to change the beat.

However, I said I'd do it and I've got some ideas in mind. I'll start writing tonight.

Given i have a choice in the matter i will always choose quality. Bad beat is a bad start when there's zero restrictions.
That said i dont want to be a NEGATIVE NANCY, so here's some beats i've made that i think could work well for a big collab once extended...

...which i've already used to make a song much sexier than Milton can ever hope to make, but i somehow could also see being a grimy collab track... the sparsely used upper frequencies make it super easy for any vocal style to sit in.

I hear you, and I am all for making this shit as dope as possible.

I was kind of worried about using that beat also, but Byron said SJD was gonna modify this to better suit our project so if that happens and it sounds good then I'll roll with it.

I mean, it's a good beat I guess, but I'm not sure if it fits with this project. I was totally for Kill Bill's suggestion of a Wu-Tangish style beat, but I'll go with what y'all want- just putting my opinion out there.

Now you're just trolling. The beat we have is GOD compared to those.

Anytime in the last three days would have been good for recommending another beat. Nobody said a thing when we were asking if anyone had suggestions and talking about using it (except SJD himself and that a different one might work better, but none were offered), only now when it's actually the beat being used.

Anyway, a deadline is a deadline, so that's the beat, and that's not the final way it's going to sound, but it's enough to get the tempo and general feel down (so enough to write).
