Are there any musicians especially hip hop producers or artists on here? Feel free to comment if hip hop is not an interest.
I have been rapping for quite a time now, about 4 or 5 years.
I only made about a dozen tracks, which I’d love to show you.
But unfortunately my hard drive crashed a while ago, and I’ve had no time since to restore it
@beyond, Alexa is an interesting and unusual instrumental in this genre. I really like it!
No hip-hop… But I am in a bluegrass/folk band. We are Port City String Band.
(I wish I could rap).
i rap. Ive gotta ton of written material from the last couple of years. A couple songs i recorded on a shitty mic. I’ve been trying to abstain from actually recording till i have good equipment.I told myself I’d start searching for good equipment after i finished college (i’m a sophomore) but a weird event of synchronicity happened. i just got an on campus job as a psycholinguistics research assistant, having no idea what this entailed, and I go in for my interview which was as simple as “yep you got the job now let me show you around”. Turns out the room that I work in is basically a studio. Tons of sound equipment (mics, padded walls) and my boss said “feel free to come in whenever you want if you have something you wanna record”.
ambient hiphop. One of my early works. Haven’t posted anything recent
I’ve lost interest in it lately, but for about 4 years I produced rap / pop music.
By the way, it seems like you all have SoundClouds; you guys should try PMP. It’s a website for hip hop producers that has track dumps for artists all the time. T.I., 50 Cent, Big Sean, etc…
@synapse eyedeas the man, trippy universe coincedences -he died the day i wrote my first raps (found out a couple years later) and Slug has same birthday as me (also the day 2pac died lol)
i try produce and rap but nothing complete yet just bits here and there. prefer off the top freestyling though
These are great responds.
When I began rapping, I started joining online chats where we were freestyle typing (or typed any written work). We can try it here. Pick a person to go against or write something original and we can comment on them, Here’s something I just wrote:
I say thanks for the love and admiration
Panoramic is the movement, what Obama is to the nation
my thoughts confiscated, illegal when i start a conversation
known around the constellation, I’m the shit, walkin round constipated
This a freestyle style concentrated, without the pulp you a fiction
in my book im flippin through fairy tales scenes in my mind
screams from a witch, genie givin 3 to wish
or three of the hardest lines to ever spit
I didn’t want to start a new thread but I still feel the need to post my latest track http://www.gigg.com/w/19098 its for a contest so check it out and let me know what you think and if you like please vote it would mean a lot to me.
