This is very nice and has a good melody but really needs those variations. I don't think this is good background for rapping because of the strong melody. But this has a big potential since the melody is quite catchy. Keep up the good work!
P.S.: Seems like there's a little problem with the hihats. (0:19) Maybe it is intended but it is weird.
Thank you, I also think it's not really a rap beat but instead of changing it I think I'll just start another project. I actually just uploaded the new (probably final) version of this song. I really like the variety I put in the new version, it's not a lot but I think it's enough.
Thanks! If you want to listen to the new (probably final) version, I just uploaded it: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/736616
