    so I've been writing s--- for a long time but just recently started recording s---... recorded this at my house with cheap equipment and edited myself so quality is far from great... I think I'm pretty decent at rhyming/wordplay tho but curious if y'all could listen and give any feedback (besides the obvious sound issues)... would be much appreciated

    you prob need to work on delivery and breath control a little, but otherwise lyrically it's interesting. keep going you're on the right track imo.

    Was expecting way worse, so good job (Listened to it twice to the review lol). delivery in parts is aight but need improving, especially your breath control + when you start trying to rap fast or throwing in multi's you sound like that cringe Watsky f-- lol, it's as if you are trying to finish your bar as quick as possible before you run out of breath. Makes it sound a little too like nerdy. Probs take breaths as your rapping like pauses in syllables if it is an issue, sort of like you did from 30-39 seconds in. But good job man, barely listen to peoples stuff now days on forums but this is really good for a first attempt. Keep it up. Will check your other stuff when you post it in the future. Thought off-it delivery was better (especially second half of it) but the quality and mixing sucks lol

    wow thank you so much for the detailed feedback, I really appreciate it! I just try to mix up the speed/flow when I can, but I guess it doesn't come off as well as I hope sometimes. I get what you're saying bc it's sorta like what Em does nowadays a lot.

    Also thanks for the encouragement, I'll be sure to tag you when I post something next. Trying to get in my friends studio to record an EP soon.

    because they all sound the same. I live in a middle class suburban area, and these other white dudes that I know only rap about selling drugs, doing them, etc. It's just very corny to me. I could tolerate it if at least they could spit, but it's all single syllable rhymes, lazy af flows etc
