Battle MCs

By orangedrink on May 29, 2016 10:24 pm

Wanted to make a battle rap.  I had the battle, but I didn't have the rap!  So I wrote a few lyrics and sampled myself and adjusted the voice.  Funny story, I started this a few years ago and I realized that OKOKOK has the same rhythm.  Interesting!  This week I added the string section, which I am nervous and excited about.  At the end, I faded out while using a VHS effect in Reason.  I've been mastering my tracks in Reason and have been really enjoying the process.   I didn't do the best job of mixing, but I was very tired from a fun weekend.  Will have to change a few things before going public with this one!


"I'm really trying to say it in a way you can understand"
"So bring it on, bring it on, bring it on!"
"Now let me tell you something, you and your crew are nothing."


Seriously this week I am going to catch up on everybody's music!  and YO I MET A WEEKLYBEATS MEMBER LAST FRIDAY IN REAL LIFE IT WAS AWESOME [shoutouts to SammyJams on a killer show!!]

Dope track, I like the vocals, the strings sound fantastic and work great with the beat

Man, really well done! Great rhythm and rap with infectious grove. Strings at the end make it epic!

Nice shuffly feel, much liked.

And "Slouch" is no slouch either...

Awesome groove and sounds, huge beat. Nothing like a good battle rap to get things popping, and this one's like no other!

Lovely, specialy the end, with strings and the HPF-like fadeout

This just gets better and better as it progresses through the song.  And that's even after it starts off awesome.
