    I'm just starting out having fun doin this. I wrote a ton of lines, got some headphones and mike, beats, fl studio and audacity and I'll be promoting my stuff on youtube once done... I'm freestyling a lot too...

    Any advice you guys could give me?

    I listen to {old school|gangsta|classics|underground} though.

    Thanks!

    I do beats, sampled and original.

    Advice? Practice, practice, practice. Lyrics and flow are very important, be different, but not too different that you're going to sound like everyone else.

    If you're really serious about it, invest some $$ in equipment, don't use software (fruity loops) since that shit sounds so fake and you can mostly tell it was done on a computer.

    Don't try to be something you're not, be yourself but look for something that you can roll with, that YOU like. Don't talk about stuff you've never experienced.

    make a myspace, facebook, and twitter for your music. Tell all your friends about it and pass out flyers. Also upload videos to youtube. Try to work up to get really good recording equipment. Also, make your beats good and original! If you're not too good at beats, find someone who is and work with them. You should still practice making beats because it's a good skill to have.

    Hope that helps.

    P.S. If you think you are really good pass out demo CDs and send them to local radio stations and the more you freestyle the better you get.

    I have been doing good just trying to make some money lol

    Heres the story about when I got shot. I was living in DC and I went out to the club. As I was walking home I took a short cut through the hood. These two guys were following me. They caught up to me and told me to empty my pockets. Like I dumbass I start talking shit so he pulled out his bullshit 22 and I was like fine I will give you my cash but your not getting my ID.

    He wanted my ID and said he was going to shoot me so I looked at him and told him he was a pussy and didnt have the balls. So he shot me in the side. I didnt even fall and it really didnt hurt that bad at the moment then like some pussy bitches they ran.

    I called 911 and they took me to the hospital. I told the cops I didnt see what they looked like but I remembered. I told a few of my Irish friends on my block. They found the guy, beat the shit out of him, took all his clothes, and one of my friends pissed on him.

    True Story

    Liam thanks for sharing with me man. I found illbeatz.com and got that membership it's hella cheap lol some nice beats inside... I need beats coz I suck at making them, I got friends that play the piano and guitar for like over 10 years, they could help me out for sure...

    He pissed on him?! LOL! liked it! yeah you could write a damn good song off this, i already got ideas lol... Why they wanted your id man though?

    I wanna get some equipment and my own apt for this stuff in here so I'll need some money too! Hit me up on skype when ur online :)

    i used to work in a department store gift wrapping items at Christmas time, my advice is to be very neat, cut paper with scissors (don't rip it) use clear tape sparingly and always ask if the present is for a boy or a girl so you can choose appropriate paper.
