Whatsup, everyone?

I'm making this thread because my buddy and his cousin are trying to be rappers. I told him I'd make a topic on CDC, so if you guys could view the video, and if you have a Youtube account, Like the video, Comment, and Subscribe. Helpful criticism would be appreciated (I would assume).



Thanks for reading, everyone. Appreciate the time.

EDIT: This is their first song, so be easy on 'em. :P
EDIT2: That picture for the song is supposed to be an 'R', for 'Real Restricted'. Couldn't see it until my buddy told me. Just letting you guys know.

Ya the production isn't the best. Needs to be more clear.

Also there needs to be more emotion, they're to monotone about it.

The delivery is very choppy. The vocalist makes it seem as though he is reading off of a script. Although I don't listen to the genre, the vocals here don't seem very natural to me. There seems to be a bit of slurring too.

I've seen their "studio" and it's in a bedroom, and they're recording in a closet. They don't have much money so they're making the best of what they can, I guess.

The audio doesn't need to sound as though it's a studio recording in order for listeners to determine whether they can perform. They require a lot of practice, and perhaps should study how some of their influences perform.

They remind me of Ted Raimi when he tries to rap.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

**RETIRED...**

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

Title is misleading... thought this was something of importance; instead it's clearly an attempt at free advertising. The music itself is horrible, combine that with amateur sound quality and we have something remarkably awful. I mean your not serious right?

I wanted to like it, but it's just not good.

The beat is average, and the vocals need alot of work. And like others have said, some sort of emotion would be nice.

I wouldn't say quit rapping. If it's something that they're passionate about, they should stick with it. But they definitely need to work on alot of things.

Is the world really against him/them?

In all seriousness art has to, has to, come from the heart.


So if the idea is to create something that is deemed "cool" even though they have no experience with said something then it comes off as robotic and forced. Which is why so much hip hop these days is garbage.

De La Soul for instance made a killing acting like middle class black dudes, which is what they were. Versus trying to copy others with more street cred.

It is not my intent to get in circular arguments with anybody. The reason i have avoided saying anything specific is because i know you or someone else will attempt to find an alternate explanation to my points which i intern will have to defend. I see no point in getting involved with the circular argument that is already well under way in this thread. I simply intended to voice my opinion on the subject. In the end either you accept the possibility of corruption and conspiracy or you don't.

Also i find your comments to be very childish. Does taking what i say out of context, paraphrasing and misquoting it make you feel good about yourself? Grow up.


Logic at its finest.

not good enough to make it as a mainstream rapper, not bad enough to go viral and get 15 min of fame.
