Forums - Music Discussion - Made My First Rap - Second one also available - Planned More

Hey guys,

I haven't been posting a lot on here but have been part of the community for at least 10 years I believe since the prime of the X360 vs PS3 wars. Not that long ago I wrote some lyrics and then some more and felt just posting it online as a rap song. I had a lot of fun writing and creating that I thought of more songs. Around 7 others I have in mind with a second one halfway through. Hopefully this is a right place and am allowed in this forum to post this.



Main inspiration I guess came from immortal technique. One thing I am trying to do is to not use any swear words or cussing. In here I did use the word shit though so please forgive :p
I did realize how hard it is to not be unneceraily vulgar with main stream content but also that which inspired me to contain so much swearing. I believe there is another way so will try to bring some songs out. Production quality is probably not superb but was able to license a track. For recording and mixing I just used a Blue Yeti X which I got second hand and Audacity since I don't have the budget for any more advanced software like Adobe Audition which requires a subscription.

Unrelated to the above:
Games I'm playing right now. GTA Online (playing with family), Ghosts of Tsushima, Don't Starve Together, Three Kingdoms Total War
Games I recently finished: The Last of Us II
Looking forward to get Captain Tsubasa soon

A few weeks later I gladly was able to make a second rap song. Doing some recording sessions for a third one which is a bit more hopeful / upbeat but till then feel free to enjoy:

Good work.

How long have you been rapping?

At high school I once wrote a rap (Dutch) for this girl 12 years ago but that didn't turn out as I hoped back then :p

Always listened to various 90s rap and sometimes would just rap along. I finished writing a book early August which kept me busy while in Belgium we had a small lockdown and then some strict rules that applied in July/August e.g. curfew. There weren't any games as well that kept my attention (finished The Last of Us 2 and will continue Ghosts of Tsushima on PS5).

Early August I wrote some lyrics, expanded them and quickly wanted to record which I was able to do from home.

So technically with the alias "mCelazz I" it has been 5 weeks or so.

Currently there are 2 more songs in development I hope to get out in the next 2 / 3 weeks and have an album ready by Fall.

So, regardless of the stage name you used, are these the second and third raps that you've written and performed?

Yeah, technically that would be correct. Number two and three indeed. Or the first two in English.
