here's my opinion:
a 30 second intro isn't a good idea
the beat needs to be remade from the ground up
a synth or an instrument wouldn't go astray.
Stay away from the SpeechSynth if your not gonna customize it
use FX & change the voice use Fl Flangus or something
a bassline is always a nice.
30 seconds into it & I'm sick of hearing those claps
if you must keep them change them
make the beat change drums & then vocal work isnt a beat
that drum pattern is a bit to erratic for my own tastes
hope this has been somewhat helpful
Thanks for your consideration
I'll work on that stuff
