My alias is BoRn4Dis. I started writing lyrics a few years ago, and I started getting in to some internet battles in the fall of '04. However, I've always been a huge fan of rap and hip hop. And lately I have been getting more involved with actually making tracks. So I'm trying to bring my own unique flavor to it. Hope you feel it..
Yeah, I've dropped open mics. My favorite spot was Irish Bobs for Kereokee night. I'd always drop as Eminem, 50 Cent or Tupac.. and the people there loved it. My best night is when I did 'Forgot About Dre'... the place was dead when the song started up. But half way through the entire bar (about 150 people) were crowding the stage, pumpin their hands in the air and when I hit 'em with that last chorus.. they went nuts! A lot of good people drop there, but I stole the show and gained a lot of respect that night. I haven't put together a demo yet.. so I'm stuck doing that and freestyling when I get a chance.
All the great rappers/lyricist out there. I'm a huge fan of Eminem and Tupac.. and I got much respect for the likes of Nas and Biggie. Others that have impressed me lately are The Game, Krazyie Bone, Prodigy and Lloyd Banks. If you can write deep lyrics.. or a catchy tune... then I'm down with you..
Right now, nothing. I use beats from offline.. and rap while holding my crappy microphone near the speakers. Hopefully I get some real equipment in here this summer.. and I'll definitely be in the studio this summer as well.
Just one thing. I'm here to develop my skills... so give me all the constructive feedback you want!
