Yo, I just heard the best rapper ever when I was listening to Soulja Boi Pandora to make fun of it. It's only for real hip hoppers and it's not that bubblegum women cars and clothes rap. I wonder who this dude is?

Nah, but for real, I've gotten back into this rap ish. I'm putting new music out every week (over non-original beats for a few), give it a listen if you feel like it.

Not bad, man! That Mayan punchline in "Lyrical Minded" was nasty. "Drew like Barrymore" gave me a chuckle, too. You can sound a little out of breath at times, especially in "The Jump Off", but that's a minor complaint. It's actually kind of a good thing, because it sounds natural, as you're clearly not punching. Good lyrics, good flow, etcetera. Perfect your breath control, and you could be something special. Thanks for upping these; I enjoyed them. I'm always happy to support local musicians, so keep me posted if and when you take your music to the next level.

Not bad, Shaun...Not bad at all. Keep it up, you definitely have potential. It takes b@lls to put your stuff out here and not get destroyed by us. What kind of equipment do you have to record your vocals? They sound pretty professional. The first 2 tracks are the better of the 3. That's a pretty good percentage, 2 out of 3...

One of these days I'll do the same, however I'm more of the spoken word kind of person, so .....

Nice songs shaun, not bad at all, i want to hear more for real. Flow is good, I think the speed you were rapping with in Aut i omatic is your optimum, you sounded a little out of breath in the second track. I still liked all songs. Good lyrics.

I want to post my ish, but I ain't got the cojones to do so... congrats Shaun they lounge you!!!

Thanks for listening and the comments, everyone. I actually had a cold when I recorded week one. That, and the fact that I inhale more smoke than oxygen, lead to that track being a bit difficult lol. Week 2 was the same way, but I went through and got rid of the breaths.

@ A Scott- I use a Koss headset and Audacity... lol. The microphone quality on the headset is pretty good, and it's easy to get rid of the static with a couple effects.

I drop a new track every Thursday, so keep an eye on the Soundcloud page around then. Thanks again

See, that wasnt so bad.

well.... tsk tsk tsk...


I think your lyrics are good, delivery still needs work though, but not bad overall. YOu'll get there, keep practicing man. Flowing the end of the bars is something you also need to work on, not just rhyming them, but letting it flow. Your breath control is also a little forced. I think if you relaxed you'd do a much better job. But then you're also working to find your own style so it might just be how you rhyme. Other than that, dude its not bad at all, dont know what you were worried about in the first place.

Did somebody get offended? I hope not.

Michael, i'm just one guy, you have to let other people give their take on it. Honestly i would like to hear like a few more tracks to actually see what you're capable of.Most importantly, i like your lyrics.
