Thread: I really hope Tech reads this...

  1. #1

    I really hope Tech reads this...

    I'm an independent rapper/producer from Deltona, Florida. I've been rapping since 2006 and got signed in 2009 to a local label who I was working with happily for over a year. But just a few months ago my old producer decided to drop me from the label because he thought I was producing other artists behind his back, which was untrue. So now I am all on my own again.
    The three best rappers, in my opinion, are Eminem, Tech N9ne and Wax. I'd give nearly anything to be able to work with any one of them someday. The reason these 3 are my favorites is because I got tired with simple ass one syllable rhymes and I can't stand listening to meaningless shit anymore. All three of these artists are insanely good lyricists, when it comes to rhyming AND content. They are all pretty close when it comes to rhyming, but I have to say when it comes to flow Tech takes the title.

    I try to keep my own rhymes as complex as possible, because I want people to be impressed with them. I'd sincerely appreciate if whoever reads this would please take the time to listen to some of my music and let me know what they think about it. My goal in life is to get popular enough as a rapper to be able to make enough money from it to take care of my family and not have to have a regular 9 to 5 job where I work my ass off 5-6 days a week and never get anywhere.

    Rap is in my veins. There is nothing else in this world that makes me feel the way music does. Here are some links to some audio streams from my website.

    Two tracks, "War (Snippet)" & "Bring It"

    One of my best rhymes.

    Snippet of me rapping and singing the hook.

    I appreciate any reviews positive or negative. I just want to know what you think.

    Also I attached 3 Mp3's:
    1. The first track I did with my former producer "HurrIcanE Is Back"
    2. The last solo track I did with my former producer "Never Die"
    3. and a snippet of an old collabo I did that was never finished. "Nobody Stoppin' Me"

    Dude...try to make it official. Contact them via phone or e-mail. DO NOT post business endeavors or inquiries on a fan-page forum.

    maybe true, but sometimes you just have to be heard. if you can develop a following on here, then maybe you get tech's attention.

    Gaining a following is one thing, but trying to get label attention on a website is another thing. Try getting a following by slanging CD's and playing shows, not posting a mini-bio about yourself on a thread you made. There are countless threads like this, I'm sure. As much as I'd love to get signed to Strange or any label for that matter, I'm not gonna make a thread saying "I love hip-hop and it's all I want to do, sign me!" This is business, be a businessman. Contact Strange and they will explain the best way to do business with them.

    lol Thanks man. I said I'd love if I could work with Tech. I'm not sayin' if they offered me a deal I wouldn't take it, I definitely would, but I'm not trying to beg for it. If I came across as desperate I apologize, I just figured people would be more willing to listen if they knew my views and where I'm coming from. Although I'm not trying to pimp myself.
