I'm not great at making rap songs, mainly because I don't get into rap all that much, I'm a major rock fan, but I am trying to attempt to make one. I want some feedback on this...I don't think it's all that good, but I'm sure it will be in the end.

So...Give me some CONSTRUCTIVE criticism please... Saying "This sucks" doesn't tell me how I can make it better.

I disagree with author comments. :P
Just kidding this was good I personally hate rap and I too is a rock fan but this was pretty cool (all your stuff owns man! really!

SkatingIsGenetic responds:

Lol thanks.

I still don't think rap or hip hop is my venue.

If I honestly try to label my songs as a certain genre, I get brain cramps.

That's why all...or my most recents...are in the miscellaneous section.


Great stuff, beat kind of like Reggeton, anyhow, great progressive music. Everything is clear and heavy. Great. Keep it going!


SkatingIsGenetic responds:

Thank you also for the compliments.

I'm hoping I'll get the urge to finish and improve on this but...

No luck so far lol.

better then something i did in the past!

My attempt at hip hop came out something sounding a little country! LOL but i got it.. I think you did a good job with this! You may wanna losen the beat up.. slow it down here and there.. The instruments you chose work out well.. You did a pretty good job on this.

SkatingIsGenetic responds:


Don't feel bad. My first rap song attempt came out as a cheesy jazz song...>,<.

Thanks for the compliments, but i'm starting to think rap isnt my thing.

But i LOVE R&B...



yeah this song need to loosen up a bit. The midi drums are a but too ridged. You know.... Most music production software allows you to de-quantize your MIDI notes or what they sometimes call "Humanize." Funny how you use a computer to make something sound more natural. :-P

This is not a bad song by any means at all. Like I said before, you need to add some more dynamic into your drums. they sound like they are mostly all at the same velocity which is something you can go in and change easily.

I wouldnt quite call this a hip hop beat....

SkatingIsGenetic responds:

Well thanks for the constructive criticism =). I hadnt realized I could have worked on so much. I will definitely take your words into consideration when, (or if) I finish the song.

You said it didn't sound like rap. Well, what did it sound like to you?

Well, if you want to make music, you've got to 'feel' the music you're making. Most people make music because they enjoy it (at least I do). You can't make music until you 'get into' the song you're making.,,

I hope that helped some.

This song is pretty chill. Something are a little off, but its still pretty good!
Keep up the good work.
PS: Check out my latest song "Weekend Has Come"

SkatingIsGenetic responds:

Thanks. The only reason I'm making this is because my Mom recommended me to make a beat for some guy at her job...

And so I'm trying to do it.

But I understand you when you're talking about "Feel the music"....trust me lol.

Thanks alot man.
