As far as YOUR music goes... Meh, it's... hmmm, how to put this...
I only listened to one song(Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft) but a lot can be taken from that one.
Writting skills... Elementary. You come right out and directly say what you mean, very few artists make too far practicing this approach, hide it in
some deeper meanings... try and incorporate more of, 'the art of storytelling'.
The instrumental, pretty good. I'm not sure if you made it, but I'd say the person who did is on their way to making some good stuff. Although it
was simple, it did show some depth. The only 'issue' I have is the use of hi-hats, and the lack of diversity in using this instrument. Also, I would
also include some breaks or samples to 'mix it up' a little bit. The monotony of the 'same ole feel' through out the song will only draw it out.
Lets say the person doesn't like it at first, well they wont like it the whole way through... so you need to add more than just one continous feel to
it. kinda hard to explain...
This is by no means hating on anything you've done, in fact, I even emailed a link to one of my friends for his thoughts. I haven't done much in
regards to hip hop in a year or so, but I've been entertaining the idea of getting back in it. It was fun, and if you surround yourself with good
people, it can become an amazing adventure.
Best of Luck!
Just thought I'd share, this is something I wrote earlier today after trying to explain the tactics of Lil Wayne:
He's painting you a picture, and you're too blind to see it.
Stop and think for a second, find a frame, then go and freeze it.
You can have that moment, I will take the rest.
I'll enjoy the bigger picture, for you it's just a guess
Want to get to heaven, you've got to raise a little hell
Illuminated big guns, we use your souls as shells
Traverse from town to town, and gain some understanding
The road through Rome, can seem so DAMN demanding
Divide and love will conquer, here are my 'two daughters'
Takes a 'Lot' to try and stop the wrath of God who slaughters
Look back, and become a pillar, zombie like that of 'Thriller'
I'm sick of all the ignorance, trust me, there is no one iller
(praying)Mantis like a tiller, Mantra like I'm Cypher
Ignorance is bliss, untill you have to pay the Piper
His responce was epic, and just sat there calling me a devil worshiper lol... ahh! Sometimes it's just impossible for people to see eye to eye, o
If you were to select your 'best' track, which would it be?
