    Well since the "****" doesn't count for censorship anymore, I guess I'll delete my entire post.

    Thanks Blackbird.

    Pthump posted a similar thread, but it was deleted. By him? By a mod?

    I think it will be fun, as long as censorship is employed.

    I don't remeber yours, was it profane?


    Erm.... your off topic subjects tend to be more... off topic than they should be. As long as you play it cool/stick to the rules... you'll be allowed to make stupid posts. You gotta build up a repuatation making stupid comments/threads like me. I mean... look at my post count... my god... I don't contribute anything.

    You should drop the cash and get an avatar, then people will love you...

    :ninja:

    A Sealab avatar couldn't hurt.

    Furthermore, your rap is gone once deleted, it doesn't rest in a recycle bin like Windows or something. But lets not turn this into a question the mods thread, 'tis against the forum rules it is: Feel free to rock another rhyme.

    Well, I don't know about taking it serious, fearing this, and making all the people delirious, with laughter? nah, I'm craftier, and after I'm done you'll know that I'm the master. Of nerdy, pathetic, dorky, stupid 'rap', in theory, I could spend an hour writing this crap, perfecting it, and making it rhythmically superb, but then I'd have to ask myself, who is the bigger nerd? Me? probably, you see, I am indeed. The one actually responding, thinking someone will read. Heed this, disclaimer however, I understand this silliness of this literary endeavor, it's not like I'm turning heads with what I said, the truth is, many people here wish rap was dead. They don't appreciate the subtleties and skill involved, thinking that if it's not instruments then somehow creativity is dissolved, well I revolve, around a different sort of idea, I think that I'm free to express whatever I hear. and if that comes out in lyrics, or in poetry who knows, the point is I wrote this without breaks, so what exactly does that show. I'm a fast typist too, and I don't make mistakes, do you? it's hard to qualify the lines I find it's all a lie, reminds me of the silliness of this stupid internet ****.



    THe thing is, if I actually recorded that it would make sense, that was all off the top of my head, but, rap is difficult to express thru text, since there is a high content of rhythmic and phrasing things that can make something that doesn't LOOK like it works...work.

    THAT is the cool thing about rap MC Kiefo! Because I was reading your freestyle thinking about how that would rhythmically work, and my interpretation could no doubt be different than yours... no doubt. But either way could work.

    Mad skillz my young friend, you tend to write in a more modern/cool sense, I picture my rapping being the total Run DMC, 80 BPM, do cha do cha do cha do cha kind of rap... which was cool when they did it... not so much when I rock the mic.

    Well, the thing is, with typing a 'freestyle', how it works essentially is, I'm seeing a line or two ahead of what I'm writing at the minute, however, sometimes there are little words like 'all' and 'every' that would add a small rhythmic cushion. So sometimes a phrase might read a little bit weird, but ultimately, I can make it work in my head.

    Sorry, can't rap at all myself, but I recently added some basslines to mp3s for a band in Prague called Suburban Death Squad. They have a song called Machette Madness that probably has my favorite rap lyrics ever (they're a band of my taste- serious music with completely goofy lyrics).
    The song is about the military going into the jungle to kill Neil Diamond, but instead of killing him them just make him mad and he begins to hunt them all down.

    Here's an mp3 of the song

    and here's the lyrics to the rap part:

    you should have known not to f*** with neil diamond
    you thought he was dead, but he's pissed and he's climbin'
    chopping through the forest with his magic machete
    that he got from the goddess Kapetti
    you may quiver though the forest so silent
    coming to get on your ass real violent
    gonna bust your face like a god damn h****
    (and)donate all your organs to medical science

    The thing that makes me hate Insane Clown Posse (other than that, in my opinion, they sound horrible) is that they actually take themselves seriously. Their fans are even worse.

    shigga shigga watch your self jigga
    na na na get up get down, check check
    im here now im there im always all around
    drinking gin in one hand cig in da other
    Can life get any better my sisters and my brothers?
    Got the power tools like tim allen
    I do the news just like jimmy fallon
    take it easy take it sleazy take it greasy
    The door is locked and I lost all my keys-ys
    My mullet grown to ten foot long
    I wrap around my ass when I rip on my bong
     
  14. Let's just say this is old and that it involved alcohol....

    You can't touch my Suesstyle,
    And I'd tell you why real quick,
    But you'd be sittin' here dazed awhile,
    'Cause my pentameter is iambic.

    I know about eggs, ham, and the Lorax too,
    Marvin K. Mooney and why those eggs aren't blue.
    Who's, wockets, and the Fox in Socks,
    You know the Cat, his hat, his xxxxx and xxxx.

    I'm gonna go crazy with style unknown,
    The Butter Battle Book, Oh, The Places You'll Go!!!
    I'm gonna get greedy and steal all the glory,
    Horton Hears a Who! The Sneeches and other stories.

    One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
    I'm gonna give you Daisy-Head Mayzie on a platinum dish.
    Don't try to copy, you may as well stop.
    Your last rhyme was weak, worse than Hop on Pop.

    Bartholomew and the Oobleck, If I Ran the Zoo
    I could drop this knowledge on anyone, or maybe just you.
    I've run out of titles, two more and I'd be strugglin'
    Fortunately there's just one: The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.

    For a while, I had a Dr. Suess esque answering machine message...


    "Amy Ledbetter spreads bed spreads better
    Jackie shoeshine shines shoes much wetter
    Slippy Sammy Sumo is as light as a feather
    Leave a Message instead of writing a letter."
