Behind The Mic
A thread for all aspiring rappers to drop their work to have it judged for all who wish to hear it. I'd post some of my work but whenever I sent Books something he won't stop laughing, so I'll have to pass for now and make room for braver souls, lol.
You can make a new thread for that.
Fuck it, to start this thread off I'll sacrifice myself. I was sorta going for an MF DOOM thing but I probably ended up just sounding mad boring. In fact, people might wanna put this song next to an MF DOOM song so they can understand why he isn't as boring/uninteresting on the mic as people like to claim. Anyhows, the song and lyrics.
Focus on this, Controverse the rap vocalist
James Williamson on the horns with the assist*
Yeah, check out that Kill City sample
Cause great music don't grow on trees like apples
So excuse me purist but I had to use it
And then pollute it with that friggin' Hip Hop music
Yo, hit you with the tongue twister
Doctor checked out the vocal cords, found nothing but blisters
The beat was hot so I kissed her
Then afterwards asked if maybe she had a sister
Cause on the mic I spread nothing but love
Underneath these lights that shine like stars from above
The audience ask: "Can the boy still grow?"
Already at the peak of my skills, so the answer's "No!"
But don't you worry, I will stay ferocious
And never cease to drop some more of that dope shit
*random note: it isn't actually James Williamson on the horns because Williamson was the guitarist, and I don't know how I managed to fuck that one up since he's never been anything but a guitarist, nor do I know why I only realized it after recording the song. Not that any you probably care in the first place but still.
That actually wasn't a bad impression at all once the accent is gotten over
Would've liked more wit but it's not bad
Re: Behind The Mic
I'm working on some more polished shit I'll post sometime soon
1993 Til Infinity Freestyle
Soundtrack of The Aspiring MC
Shook Ones Freestyle
Just got back into rhyming as track season just came to a close, thus these are light on the songwriting aspect and heavier on the wit. Tryna drop an EP soon with original beats from Tae Beast, 14KT, and all. Both got spin on a radio show last night, people were feeling 'em and everybody on Twitter said these were dope.

Yo, I used to respect you, son, loved you like a brother, nah'mean? But Aubrey? Mahfucking Aubrey? Nah, I can't respect that shit, dawg. Word is bond.
I remember I once told you that you had a tendency of rapping (too) fast for the sake of rapping fast, losing track of the flow. I still heard a bit of that on the '93 Til Infinity freestyle, but you've improved on that. I can honestly say that if you dropped some legit shit like an EP, I'd check it out not just because I 'know' you but out of genuine interest. And you might wanna hit up OD and see if we can do some Planet Ill cross promotion, because I know dude's been trying to set something like that up.
And last but not least, Aubrey, son? Fo'real?
That Fear beat... shit is insane. The rises, falls, etc. Drake gets flames, Khalil laced that man. LMAO But yeah, I really just slowed down and "practiced" all track season... does wonders what focus can do.
And I'll consider that, been tryna get some artwork done so I could submit the first 2 cuts to some blogs so yeah
