Hey, thanks for taking the time to read my long-ass post and commenting 😁
To my shame, I never heard of Rakim. But I also couldn’t name a single song from Tupac if you’d put a gun to my temple. Maybe I had more the Slim Shady fanboy attitude than being a real hip hop fan.
At least I heard some tracks from other famous late-game rappers like Busta rhymes, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and for example “Dax” who lately rocks Youtube and I think he’s an awesome rapper.
I also listened to a lot of German rap, which is same but different. Wish I could share, but I doubt any non-German speaker would even find a flow in them.
And I felt the flow from your posted lyrics, they are actually pretty good. Especially the line “God has instilled a will to build”, which is the type of flow I prefer the most. It’s not easy to come up with chains like these. Just listen to Godzilla, that’s the stuff.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I’ll roam Youtube later to listen to some of Rakim’s tracks, to see what I’ve been missing out on.
If you like to write lyrics, keep posting them in poetry, we’d be on the same page. I’d love to read them.
Oh and I found someone called Shuka4Beats on Youtube, who has awesome instrumentals. I know there are many beat makers out there, but that guy is really really good. Tune in, maybe you’ll start freestyling to them. They also come without the voice tags and are free to use.
