Today I released my first rap remix based on the song "No Type" by Rae Sremmurd.
My "rap career" started about two weeks ago when my roommate and I were messing around thinking up fake bar to the "No Type" beat. Getting into the zone I realized we had a theme/concept. Not having anything on my plate at the time (see post on my creative dry spell) I told her the next day I would get serious about putting down some lyrics and recording them to post on our MFA cohort's Facebook group.
True to my word - and with the help of my roommate - I put down and recorded my raps. Unfortunately I sounded horrible! So I contacted my go to creative guy Shawn York (37 Square Miles, Shawn York Designs, Guesswho) to drop some autotune on that mess, LOL. He sent it off to a wonderful mixer, Alicz. One thing led to another and now I have a legit rap single.
Why did I do it? Really, I had nothing else going on and technically it can count as putting my MFA to use. Either way, I am proud of what I have created and hope you enjoy it.
