    It doesn't seem like you're really into the music, you gotta sound angry when you're talking about busting caps.

    The music part was actually enjoyable enough to keep me interested, but definitely not the subject matter.

    I guess I am a little biased towards hip hop culture, as I can't stand it. But geared for the right audience, I am sure they would like it. But a word of advice, the 'gangster rap' is kind of falling out of place.

    But if you're really planning on killing people, then your subject matter is A OK!

    But to be more helpful, I think that the only thing that really needs work is your voice. It fits the style, but you need a little more passion in it. From what it sounds like though it is more like a need for a better mic than anything else. Keep recording and when you can upgrade I'm sure it'll sound real good.
     
  5. yep pop fiter all the same thing..
     
  6. i think before you become that hot artist you have to find your sound on that mic..get that right and then you learn how to have proper mic control and express words naturaly without thinking about how you sound

    Sory to be an ass but you dont have one piece of decent gear, dont expect your recordings to surpass the gear you use, especially as an extreme novice. Let us know your budget, and lets get you some real gear. You can polish a turd all day long and at the end of the day its still a turd.
