For the Kicks
I mean...these verses were just sitting there, so...
I had actually started my track 2 days ago and hit a wall, not sure where I wanted to take it.
Then @codeenergy saved the day with another set of great, swift, and clever acapella verses that he put up for grabs. I was going to leave them alone at first but I saw the bpm was 96 and my track was 95 so I just wanted to drop his stuff on top of mine to see what it would sound like and, well...here we are. Plus, I loved his words so yeah. A master craftsman, he be.
Like the other song, his stuff saved my track from going in the bin, because using his verses caused me to do stuff to the arrangement and make it into more of a full song. I simply sat his vocals on top with a little snipping and moving around of both vocals and music, and just programmed a few little drum fills on top of my existing drum patterns. Did some trimming and stretching and that was it.
I'm not a hip-hop producer (not a producer, period - just a hobbyist having fun), but its been fun messing with rap vocals. I'm sure there's all sort of missing opportunities for hi-hat rolls, 808s, vocal filters, drops, etc that a good producer could do with their eyes closed, but oh well somebody else can do all that, cause he's putting these out there for everybody to mess with.
Thanks again, codeenergy!
Hopefully you aren't tired of seeing my name pop up on your stuff lol

I try to write like my life is danger take a deep dive off of a cliff hanger private problem promoted to major as I get airborne for a banger with my range a page of flames was traced to place where I blaze up what a fire pace huh in with the embers the wind spray us cant stray from the status until I've burned in my famous last words that's heard backwards because you can't push forward unless you push back first what's these facts worth a fat verse or a pat on the back that hurts cast nerves towards your shoulder blade as the knife turns fast work for a slow ride dirt all over thy hearse grave situation I emerge if you wanna raise the dead better pack enough to purge or feel static start to surge thru ya veins that's thirst cupped with ya blood raised
