My music (German rap)

Since I make and improve things in a rather random fashion (for me it’s more like puttering in the garden than serially making finished products) this will always be a mixture of crappy and more polished things… so I figured I might as well post it now.

The lyrics are in the description on the individual song pages on Soundcloud, and you can also find downloads, (in some cases slightly different, i.e. without some samples etc.), lyrics and instrumentals here: http://a.sandboxx.org/neinMC/

Oh, but by “stuff not being finished” I don’t mean to say that criticism isn’t welcome, to the contrary :slight_smile:

I normally don’t write or rap in English (I don’t even speak it, I just read, write and listen), but listening to KRS-One talking crap in defense of Afrika Bambaata disgusted me so much, I made an exception. The lyrics and a link to a transcript of a KRS-One interview are on the soundcloud page, audio clip sources to follow later today.

This is the very first version, and I intend to redo it, I know this isn’t great… but I don’t intend to stress out about it, either. Even if I could do it well enough, and I can’t – it would feel weird to use this particular issue as some way to “show off”, if you know what I mean. I’m however perfectly fine being a nobody dissing a famous person, and whatever motives people might read into that. I say things because I want to say them, always. Nothing more, nothing less.

I like the last two audio clips a lot however, that’s the “payload” as far as I’m concerned. If just one person is encouraged to speak up by this, or just one person is encouraged to not put people down who speak up about their experiences, that’s more than enough. Make it ten, and I’ll be proud.

Thanks!

I really dig your lyrics…very good topics and views, made for the ones who wish to stay free & not partake in business…immer genau auf den Nerv der Dinge. Aber bleib mal am mic auf deutsch, englisch wirkt bei dir sehr schlaksig durch den Akzent und die deutsche Färbung des Satzbaus…

Thanks :slight_smile:

And I agree about rapping in English, apart from it sounding awkward, it’s also no fun to do at all. But I honestly got pissed off when I first hear KRS-One talk about “untouchable leaders” and then in another interview how “hip-hop should question everything”, and before I knew it I had so many speech samples… so I just wrote something to be able to use them. Now I don’t want to take it back, so I’ll make another attempt at it every now and then just to lessen the cringe. But it’s just a one-off thing really.

Hi, very nice tracks! Love your flow.

I prefer you rapping in German though :slight_smile:
