I see you've been having fun with your multis. The writing here is extremely dense, and you've got some memorable lines to boot (kicked out of your home school? D-O-P-E.) What's impressive here is how relentless the bars are. Not only is almost everything part of a rhyme scheme, but the lack of a hook and ceaseless stringing together of stanza after stanza make it immediately apparent just how much content is here.
The biggest issue with this track is the mix. Your vox sound quiet compared to the beat, and since your delivery already lacks emphasis it makes it kind of hard to hear what's going on. At some points it sounds like you're out of breath, but again it sounds as if this could be a mixing issue. That, combined with a couple stumbles (the Nicholas Cage line was somewhat off-beat) make me wonder if you did this all in one take.
Heyyyyy what's up man? Thanks for the review. I've been working on mastering a LOT lately, and I think this track was made right around the time I started working hard on that. So hopefully every song from here out will be mixed slightly (or vastly- if someone else does it) better than the one before it.
Dude, I have 3 songs about to recorded that are fucking ridiculous with multis. One of these songs will span the course of an entire cd by the way. And another is serious. And another is NOT, but it is dope as fuck and it's called Ferris WHEEL. And it's 5 minutes long and about Ferris Wheels. Shit is getting crazy on this horizon man. Something is about to happen. Somewhere. To someone. Or something. You can bet your ass.
hohoho, i see you with the styles. those adlibs really boost your style.
lots of perspective, goofy imagery that translates into wisdom, cool rhymes, mathematical precision, and always creative. one of my favorite words you rhymed with in this piece was, "cheese steak" and "green bay".
id say, the mix is something that needs to be worked on more. but then again if thats the way it was meant to be, it fits the atmosphere well. kind of a scatterbrained funk spiral of sounds, stringed together by spaces in the rhythm.
"i shot someone for not coming to kill me" (word up)
"was kicked out the the home school that i go to" (lmaooo)
"put the glove on you i promise it will not fit" (the blockheads always try to intimidate in crews, dont they. talk about blocking up the highway.)
whatchu know boutda ol english?
overall this was a phat piece, i appreciate the realness of your being. that takes effort and time, dude. i think you did a great job, however the sound engineering could receive more attention.
shouts to Ax for supplying that energetic beat.
(REMASTERED/REUPLOADED 17 NOV 2016, fyi)
Yeah I think the ad libs ended up making the song for real, and most were added after the 3rd cut of this. Dude it took me 6 tries to get this damn thing right, and I still can't get "quite" the vocal sound I'm looking for. Which may or may not partly be due to technical inferiority lol album title if I was a bit more self-loathing...
I feel like I got into a vocal groove right around the time I peaced out for a couple years, and maybe I'm just shaking the rust off. Or maybe it's time to upgrade my equipment lol.
Still rockin' the Blue USB Yeti from back in the day, and have been dealing with the Reaper (Free Version) DAW ever since last Clabtrap's Finals. So I'm not really happy with the sound either thing puts out, and maybe that's why I feel like I gotta dub my shit too much.
But I kinda dig this song, and maybe one day when I get better gear, I'll re-do a bunch of mah classicz... and release something I've been thinking of doing for a while now, "A Brief History of Rhyme, vol : 1"
Yeah, anyway thanks for diggin the track my brother.
Other rappers need to sit down because the professor is back.
Damn good beat by Ax, too.
Thanks Rampant. Dr. Bruh Bruh is back in the building... OH AND TO ALL YOU LISTENING- Clear your caches btw if you heard this earlier than Sept. 13th, otherwise yo ass will still be hearing the original, shitty version of shittiness. At least that's what Rampant told me in an exclusive interview I had with him like 5 minutes ago.
