Audio-Visual Rap/Poetry

Sloan (@sloanspirals) 9 years, 7 months ago

Ive been making raps for a while, always pointless radio type of rap, though I’ve started to branch towards storytelling and more creative lyrics. I met a kid that went to my high school all four years, but i never talked to him until recently. He’s really into poetry, and me being really into rap/video we’re going to try and start a new type of audio/visual art. This is kind of like the, pilot episode for our “mixtape” but let me know what you think. Now that we know what we can produce I think our future videos will be a lot better

I personally think this is very different from a lot out right now, especially main stream and even underground rap. With the poetry mix I think it branches out even farther. Just let me know what you think of it and if you’d like us to keep pursuing this.

Criticism or recommendations is welcome

@sloanspirals, Alright, so I will be a mix of professionally blunt and honest:

-Your flow is great. Story is fun, and I enjoy your vocab and everything. I’d like to hear you put out something that actually has some depth behind it too.

-I cannot, in good faith, say you sound unlike anything I have ever heard ENTIRELY, but there is something about you that I just like. I know, like I said, you have such a clean, smooth flow. You sound great on the mic and your lyrics are excellent. You remind me of a less-ridiculous Odd Future, with more mellow beats. Check out NY (Ned Flanders) from the Odd Future Mixtape #2 and you will see exactly what I mean.

-I am sure that you realize the video work has room to improve. Story and concept came through though, and so at least whoever is running the cameras has some innate eye for the shots.

All in all, there’s something to you. I need to hear more, but I think I see potential.

@lytning91, yea, the next videos were working on will be a lot different with meanings and what not. I used to be a huge fan of Odd Future but recently I’ve drifted away because they’re changing majorly. Just excited for Earl’s album lol.

Yea the video was rushed, completely my fault, but like i said it was only the “pilot episode.”

I appreciate your help, Ill let you know when our next song will be coming out. Thanks again
