One other thing

When I started out I made a fairly heartfelt track called Ohio's Hope that people locally fucked with pretty heavy

but i didn't like how it made me feel for some reason

people would quote the lyrics to me incorrectly. or i dunno.. it just felt fake even tho it was real.

Like i put something of myself out there and then people latched onto it not understanding it but wanting more of it

I dunno im not doing a good job of putting it into words

But that combined with the fact that failed attempts at deep concept tracks are wild cringey

I just have a fear of coming off inauthentic i guess

Like im macklemore making songs about how its ok to be gay about a decade after we all got the message

I just don't want to get caught up trying to give people what they want cuz i can't stand the feeling of being insincere

but i'll give it a shot

sometimes I think about going back to rap because I'm a big fan of cultural appropriation

I've been on the fence for a while though

Em made a living sharing his vulnerabilities, from coked out moms, to cheating baby mothers bro. Open up, drop something people can relate to.

we understand that you enjoy a specific style of writing, and rapping - it's battle rap music. you make music like a battle rapper. The Loe Pesci's, the Benders etc - on some KOTD battle rapper in his prime shit

you have a solid voice and flow, but your subject matter is lackadaisical, and your beat choice is comfortable. you stay in your comfort zone. show us some different flows, different rhythm, difference subject matters etc

your posts here are vulnerable and have personality - if you could somehow package that + trying some different sounding beats + try some new melodies

it would be something to look forward to

you've established you can rap. but that's all it sounds like.. if you're okay with that, that's fine too.
100%. I enjoy moose as a poster because he comes off genuine and authentic, although a bit sensitive sometimes. And I do think he has an interesting background and interesting story to tell, which he’s already shared on here. I would also look forward to a story telling track about his life.

There’s not many that can write an actual song on these boards. Like. Something with a plot, imagery, etc.

Dex. Jook. Me. Shadow. Who else ?

lol, Jooks posts are so well written and exciting to read. The main reason why I post here ..would be dry w/o him

His posts are like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re gunna get

I never knew he wrote songs with plots and imagery but it makes complete sense
