Song I wrote after hearing about the fires in Greece.
33% anarchist rant.
33% religious rant.
33% girl rant.
100% funky goodness.

The beat is also made by me.

Couldn't decide between Modern and Oldskool, so I went with Oldskool for the rebellious spelling.


I thought that beat was really good. At first I was trying to figure out where the beat was going but once the drums came in it seemed to fit. My biggest critique is that the MC's voice seems more like they are talking rather than MC-ing if that makes sense. Like MC-ing I think a lot of times is more like announcing stuff and using more of an announcing voice, which I think would have worked better with this beat. Also the song is only 1:50 long. I do think that the song overall does sound really good, but there are just some details that needed worked out.

Yeah, I've recently been working on my voice when I'm recording and I'm sure I could make it like 100% better right now haha. Thank you for the 5 star rating though!

Really cool vibe you've got going on in this piece. What caught me straight away was that trip-hop feel of the sample you're using, reminded me a lot of Blockhead so well done on that! Though, I didn't feel like what you were rapping matched with the title, and reasons behind it. But hell, you're speaking your mind on some serious shit and that alone deserves respect.
Keep it up!

Thank you! And you're right, I kinda strayed from the title topic, but this song was meant to cover a lot of places in the first place, kinda like a medley of "Oh shit all this stuff is happening, what a clusterfuck". After listening to it over and over, I've decided that I need to get better at recording vocals as well. They just don't seem tight enough. Anyway, thanks for the review and the kind words!
