So rather than continually flooding the forum with new threads I'm just going to use one thread to get opinions from you guys on my work.If you weren't aware (somehow) that I've been hard at work trying to learn to rap better and freestyle as well, well, I have been. I'd call it a hobby but at this point it's more of a love - I never had the ability to play an instrument or anything growing up.I started freestyling in November, about 8 months ago - Since then I've improved tremendously because I literally have been working daily to improve.Anyway, since this is a new thread I suppose I should walk you through a timeline of how bad I used to be.This first video I uploaded in 2006, I was a Moderator on a Hacking/Warez forum called KwickFix and they had a rap battle thread, I decided to post a troll verse and even went as far as recording it on my webcam.Be warned, I only posted this video to show you just how bad I used to be.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_o3_oKb_aEThen, last year, I decided to try again and work on a League of Legends Parody for the Songs of the Summoned contesthttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3w_xAx823kI tried my heart out to make something decent and ultimately I fell short of the mark.So fast forward a year to November, my friends Craig and Dennis convinced me to join their "cypher" - I didn't even know what a cypher was at that time. They just spit bars back and forth and I stood like a deer in the headlights. It took me TWO FULL WEEKS to say a SINGLE WORD.I tried doing it in my car and slowly got better although my flow was absolutely awful.I decided to make an investment and bought a Microphone under the rationale that I gamed a lot anyway so why not spruce up my voice quality?Well, we spent the next two weeks pretty much doing nothing but recording and boy was it fun. I really did fall in love with the feeling of creating something of my own.Posted ImageDay one baby, the GoPro and weed on the table, Audacity ready to go and a brand new Microphone to pour your heart and soul into.Here is my Studio as of 4/30/2014.Posted ImageHere are some of my recent tracks grouped into categories:Completed Tracks:https://soundcloud.c...ts-available-onWorks in Progress:https://soundcloud.c...eblar02/versaceFreestyles:https://www.youtube....h?v=ZPqgFGGfeGE 4/24/14https://www.youtube....h?v=UDVGj9t-dP4 4/23/14Text - to Audio (written as text then tried out on the Microphone):https://soundcloud.c...e-verse-shaolinhttps://soundcloud.c...3-the-awakeningand I also decided to start fiddling around with FL Studio 10 yesterday, I've made 5 sound clips so far while I've been learning the program (in the order that I made them) and more recently got a MIDI keyboard. These are also those clips as well.https://soundcloud.c...dated-4-15-2014https://soundcloud.c.../fl-studio-10-1I'd really appreciate input on any and all of these, I know that a lot of you don't respect rap but as a fellow longtime member of this community perhaps you'll respect me enough to give something a listen. :)I also have my "How Far I've Come" Freestyle playlist - it starts with my more recent stuff and the further along you go the older the track.https://soundcloud.c...4-13-to-8-16-13

I dislike rap and similar music genres in general so I won't comment on that, but I just want to say that if you love doing it then you should keep on doing it and have fun with it.

I dislike rap by today's definitions as well, I think Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj are pretty much the least talented musicians in the history of the earth.

I don't plan to make generic rap - I want to leave a mark, if I ever rise to fame somehow I want to emphasize lyricism in music rather just catchy jingles and bitches and hoes.

I wrote a verse for the "Royal Rumble" on the Rap-Royalty forums, I didn't even intentionally do this but literally every single word in the 4 line verse rhymes with something else. Every single word.

It's all color-coded to make the rhyme scheme obvious.[/color]


Magnificent, I sniff their scent - animalistic at my core and I'm ballistic as I soar
Animosity implores - an atrocity of Gore, perverse
and vicious - Synesthetic visions
bleeding from the fissions, breeding cell divisions - rebirth'd
and risen - forlorn, forbidden
The crown is just a pittance, Such pathetic kittens - a hound that hunts the pissants.


I made a few references to everyone that is participating in the Royal Rumble as well during my verse.

1) MagnifacenT
2) Animosi-T, Gori, P.V., Synesthesia

Yung Lean is... interesting, I guess to each their own, I'll be listening to Run the Jewels shortly.

Treeqt have you even listened to anything I've posted?

https://soundcloud.c...eblar02/versace

The levels are all off but it still sounds okay, give it a listen and if you hate it then fine. It's more generic rap music rather than the Persevere track which I tried to be heartfelt with.

So if anyone is interested I also do freestyle requests. I had a thread on /b/ and got requests from people: Here are those.

Freestyle over some awful Dubstep track:
https://soundcloud.c...r-awful-dubstep

Freestyle duet with Rappy McRapperson - couldn't find the instrumental so I decided to give him some back up.
https://soundcloud.c...ter-with-lyrics

Freestyle over the Battlefield Vietnam theme song:
https://soundcloud.c...tnam-theme-song

Freestyle to the Command and Conquer: Red Alert - Big Foot theme (on Vocaroo because Soundcloud detected a Copyright Claim)
http://vocaroo.com/i/s0wmo0WXo444

Freestyle over Kendrick Lamar's Backseat Freestyle (called to Frontseat freestyle (with seatbelts on) to avoid any trouble with copyrights:
https://soundcloud.c...-freestyle-with

I'll take requests here and I will do each and every one, I don't care what it is.

Hey, back with a topical piece I did for a battle on a different forum, the idea was to create a song that embodied this picture:

Here's my entry, I wanted your thoughts on it since I know you guys are at the very least honest haha, the goal is to create an atmosphere and use lyrics that express the picture. I think I've done that.

Your flow has gotten a lot better in my opinion, just need to keep up a vocal momentum. Not sure if that's the right way to call it, but yeah you're definitely improving.

Background track sucked though. Just hate those kinds of background tracks.

Nasty, brutish, and about 6'1".

Look at me. I can start and stop wars, at will. I can save or destroy the world. I can do anything I fucking want. Just now, I pissed near my toilet bowl because I fucking can.
