normally i only like gangster rap and such but this is nice try to get the voice more over the beat and increase the bass just a little then it wil be perfect
First for the beat, it isn't mixed really well. That "wah" synth/sound overpowered the rest of the beat to the point where it took me 2 minutes to realize that there were strings in this, so that should be fixed.
As for the singing, I want to thank you for not bitching out and using autotune. Way too much R&B lately has been using it, so it's refreshing to hear actual singing.
Vocal levels are fairly decent, I can't tell if they're great or just ok (speaker issue), but I know they aren't a problem. Second rapper is better than the first, although I didn't mind the first one.
Only reason this is getting an 8 is it lacks a special something to make it really memorable. Still, good work, and I will 5 this.
