I enjoyed listening to it. But the bass-line felt really tame. You could have loosened it up a bit with different notes at the end of a metre (1:53 for example).
I really would've loved to hear a trumpet join the fun around 1:00, which kind of would set the melody.
I don't think adding vocals would be a good idea. I suggest instead adding an instrument that sort of does the talking/telling the story, by not keeping to a certain rythm, what you did with the flute to a certain extent.
Mr.You had just unintentionally created..
G-Funk. Which means Gangsta Funk. Popular in the late 80s to the mid 90s, G-Funk is a blend of Hardcore Westcoast Hip Hop rap music mixed in a healthy dose of 70s Funk classics. Notable G-Funk rappers I recommend you to hear is songs of Vontel, C-Funk, Eazy-E(Explicit), and Twinz in the 1990s.
Regarding to your audio project, it's quite soft, more to Vontel's and C-Funk's chill outs songs unlike the aggressive of Ice-Cube and Eazy-E.
So briefly speaking, if there is a sub-category in Hip Hop, it should be in G-Funk.
Hope you make more audios like these, these sub-genres are hard to come by nowadays ever since the advent of auto-tuning and garbage rap.

Thanks so much for the info. I really like this genre, its more musically intelligent and funky than much of the autotuned chart toppers. Im glad you enjoyed it and yeah hopefully more on the way soon :)
i love the subtle bits of flute and piano. It's just so mischievous and nice. The thin texture really works for this kind of song. Great work!
So chill, yet so hardcore. It's the perfect combination of smooth and tough, and I really like the combinations of instruments. The beginning's pretty sweet, as well.
PS I think it would be more appropiate if you put in Funk, but a great song whatsoever!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
