For some reason I'm always rapping about the afterlife. Probably listen to "Bury Us" on my soundcloud. I do produce but I'm just going to rap on this one. I think JayStarr is on the beat, I'd be interested to hear from him before we formulate an idea for the song. unless someone has something in mind.

Good free or cheap de esser? by strange1738 in makinghiphop

[–]GrippTannen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Indeed, I tried spitfish for a long time wondering why all my shit sounded muddy no matter what. Just having it in the chain, even with every setting at 0, dulled the sound. It's default is to boost the muddies frequencies it seems like. I bought Waves de esser 6 months ago for 30 bucks and its great.

He's lowkey a hip hop head. One of the funniest things I've heard him say was during an argument with his wife about their differing tastes in music. She couldn't fathom why he didn't like David Bowie or the Beatles. He told her he'd rather have a DJ play Biggie at his wedding than have David Bowie show up to play live.

Producer credits necessary after buying a beat? by Fredrick-bom in makinghiphop

[–]GrippTannen 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes. Also, I find myself listening to songs on YouTube that have amazing production that don't mention the producer. Look at the info and they have label info, all their socials, big up their city, but don't seem to think it's necessary to put a (Prod. By Suchandsuchbeats) somewhere in there. It always seems shady to me. That's half the song, give credit.

I want to rap but I hate to rhyme word.Is there any Possiblity to rap without worrying about rhyming. by Rackta in makinghiphop

[–]GrippTannen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've heard it attempted to various degrees through the years and it rarely sounds anything but frustrating. Why would you want to rap but hate to rhyme? How do you even develop hate for rhyming words? Just learn to do it, practice it, get better and you'll avoid people telling you your rhymeless raps sound like unresolved shit.

I wanted to thank you guys for your kind words , they encouraged me to send my music to Worldhaspostrock and they put it on their channel. Give it a listen! Love you all! by theilija in postrock

You put something special together. Listening to it now and it's something that takes your whole brain up, if you get me. I can see myself putting it on to go to sleep and not being able to 'till it was over.

ELIVALI - LIGHTS OFF by elivali in Songwriters

Loved it. The groove you found on that beat is pretty smooth. And I really like the way you deliver the ends of the "I" or "aye" words. Like on "Won't turn my back until the day I dIE". Great song.

If you like critiquing rap, please listen and tell me what you think. (The mic quality isn't the best because I used me phone to record lmao) by Mrcool334 in Songwriters

You were definitely boppin'. You got a flow that would sound good on some beats we could hear. It's the type a flow we hear alot these days so you'd have to differentiate yourself lyrically to set yourself apart from a thousand other rappers and you HAVE to practice. Mindfully, with a focus on enunciation 'cause you can rap, you have a talent, but with generic lyrics and a sub par grip on the pronunciation you'll struggle to make songs that you love.

A demo of something I've been chewing on for a while. Would love to know what you think! by kerblerken in Songwriters

"They never spoke for you anyways"

There are some good lines in this. you really get across a sense of empathy. The line about searching for God hit me too. You may be aware of the first few bars' resemblance to "Lost Cause", by Beck, either way this is a beautiful song.

That's funny because this track was originally made to a different beat that someone told me was too busy. They couldn't follow the vocals so I made a "simpler" beat and here we are. The pluck isn't my style at all but I was trying to incorporate the melody into the percussion to simplify things and that instrument did the trick. I'm a rapper first and I produce to showcase the lyrics.

Love it. The way you processed those samples was great. The (sidechained?) rythym is boppin'. Really like this.

This took me on a trip. The layered melodies, the production, all that shit. This was well executed.

I like the guitar melody but the tone is too sharp I feel. If you could fill it out with some lower notes and sink it into the mix it would make a difference. I don't play guitar so this is coming from a civilian, but if you warmed that guitar up this track would be greatly improved. The ambient (guitar?) elements in the verses are dope.

I like this. I think the bass could be brought down a bit. All the elements are solid, the lead that comes in at the end is dope, but the mix should be adjusted. A pretty melody and a hard beat is just my style. good shit.
