Update: This is a novelty track, don't take it seriously, this is not for die hard rap or hip-hop fans... I don't care what you think of it compared to Tupac or Lil Wayne... I just want to make you laugh, or at least amuse you.

My alter ego "Rapmastalee" raps with some homeless guy from the street...

Thanks! We plan on doing more.

But...KRS-One was homeless too...

...and he got a record deal and took out MC Shan from QueensBridge, NY later on in his career (Sorry, I wasn't able to respond with my old name so I created a new one), which ignited the jump start of Hip Hop; then Nas came along to resurrect QueensBridge as well as Hip Hop later on. I gave you a higher rating being that you stated that your track belongs to a different genre.

However, the funny voice reminds me of Nas' track "Who Killed it" from the Hip Hop is Dead album. On that track, Nas uses a funny voice, trying to portray a detective in the Dick Tracy days--he was trying to investigate the death of hip hop. It's a very inspiring track to listen to because a listener will understand why Hip Hop had died; that is, if you can decipher his complex lyrics. But, it's not one of my favorites.

Now if you want to be really creative and make an impact in Hip Hop, do something like how Nas did in "Rewind" from Stillmatic, where he tells a story backwards from the end to the beginning while still making sense and captivating the audience. However, there's no other hip hop artist in history that was able or ever attempted to successfully pull that off.

I don't mean to compare you to such high standards but a true artist will honor that and would try to match the intensity of the other artist--competitiveness.

Since you was creative with the homeless bit, I would like you to attempt to try and spit a story backwards and still make sense and still captivate the audience.

I'm a no frills kind of guy, meaning that silly stuff shouldn't fill up the majority of track when it comes to hip hop (which this track is not hip hop per you). One example is Eminem. I thought the dude really has someone talent, especially on the 3rd verse of the "Real Slim Shady." However, after that, I don't think he was ever as versatile in his later works--just a bunch of silly stuff, yelling like Tupac, and always kept talking about his moms and daughter; thus, no content to offer whatsoever. I liked "Lose yourself" and "Toy Soldiers" but his lyrical ability and style felt short of his previous work on "The Real Slim Shady."

Anywho, I encourage you to listen to the lyrics of "Who Killed it" and "Rewind." The reason is that I would like if you would modify this track to be a hip hop track which compliments "Who Killed it" since I noticed similarities. Since you like to be creative, I would like you to test your limits by trying to do something like "Rewind." I dare you to make your next song that title. I will be searching for it. :)

P.S. I would've posted the lyrics of those two track but I don't have enough space and I'm not going to make another user name. You could do an online search though for them. "Hip Hop is Dead" and "Stillmatic" are the albums to look for those tracks; ohhla.com (to Newgrounds: this is not to promote a website; the purpose is only to be used as a reference since I am unable to fit all the lyrics on this post) has the lyrics too.

By the way, please don't kill hip hop; it died once; it recuperating, and I don't think its like a cat that has 9 lives. :)

nimble-nick responds:

Again... people... stop taking this seriously, it's a parody. I'm actually kinda happy that people thought my lyrics were good enough to be a real rap... but it's just a trick, to get you to the end... it's just a front for the very emotional ending. I really have no interest in emulating legendary hip-hop artists, and no intention of killing Hip-Hop... Thanks for listening
