Am I the only white rapper?

Postby J_Sheezy » Mon Jun 27, 2011 2:29 pm

Hi! The names j-sheezy... I keep it easy... to much to be breezy... fo sheezy... Any other white rappers that submit? Or am I the only one thats gonna represent and be the shit? I admit, I may be a hit right off the dome while youre sittin at home and I creep up in your zone.... You might just end up lettin me catch you off your guard cuz im a star shinin in the night... I guess this is my introduction to welcome myself to song fight!

So, your title and post implies that only white hip-hop artists are worthy of competing with you?

Just kiddin'.

We have a few rappers submitting occasionally. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. A good chunk of the feedback is usually "This is not my genre, so I don't know". Don't let it get you down.

I usually enjoy the good rap we do get. Bad music is bad music, and good music is good music, ya know?

definitely... Im not a music snob... I like punk, metal, hardcore, Techno (I may submit a few techno songs here and there), And hip hop... I dont really discriminate... but hip hop is what im best at.... I can show you my style... [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYVwdjqOZGs[/youtube]... The instrumental is the same one i just submitted for under over..... but with different vocals...

I used to do rap, and then I learned how to sing so I didn't have to anymore. :D

And especially... don't tell us all about how you're the greatest and then suck.

Be amazing and then let us tell you you're the greatest.

P.S. - submitting a song for one fight that uses the same track as the song you did for the previous fight does kinda violate the spirit of "once the title is announced, write and record a song."

misunderstood... I havent previously submitted a song... That was an independent track... I recycled the beat as I made it less than 24 hours ago... This will be my first submission... And I would never pump myself up to be the greatest... Im OK... I just wanna do this for fun.... And if someone doesnt like my sound or whatever then thats ok... everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect the honest criticism... :D

There have been, and are more than a few. Buckle up for some trained ears, and maybe some harsh reviews.
Please be awesome, hip hop ain't a game.

Hello. Welcome. I tried to rap once. It was silly. I feel funny saying please be awesome because I still feel new at it after being less-than-a-2-year-old ... but we can try to be awesome together. Although I Cannot Rap. Muchly. At All.

Looking forward to Hearing Your Fat Beatz.

And remember, there is nothing "cool" or "groovy" about poor grammar, incorrect spelling or inappropriate use of capitals.

Heh, you've reminded me of this scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObbLapUaZd4&t=1m45s

‘The square is seldom is ever cool’ states Bloomquist. ‘He is "not with it", that is he doesn’t know "what’s happening." But if he figures it out, he moves up a notch to "hip". And if he can bring himself to approve of what is happening then, he becomes "groovy". And after that with much luck and perseverence, he can rise to the rank of "cool".

The second most famous white rapper on song fight, MC Hawking, has a mention in today's NYTimes. Maybe that will help you find your place in the pecking order.

And if you were creative you would browse the archives for all things "MC" to get an idea of the landscape (hint: look for artists that win every fight they enter.)

Not that race matters at all, but pretty much ALL of the rap here has been from white folk.

Rapping isn't that difficult. If you can chant to a beat, you can do a basic rap.

Leaning ahead or behind the beat in a way that doesn't sound like you're messing it up, syncopating, fitting the sentence intonation to the beat without forcing it...and of course writing good lyrics - those are the difficult parts.

I'm an overweight white guy approaching 40. I'm a nerdy gay guy with British accent. My lyrics have references to philosophy and sci-fi movies, but no braggadocio. If I can be a rapper, anyone can.

You know when I first got on here I saw something on here that said something about saying something about this...cannot remember what was said though, if it was positive or negative.
