    "High Dive"

    It's a hiphop track, but before you run from the thread, give it a listen.
    It's not the type of hiphop that gets major play.
    Any and all advice is more than welcome, even if to say I suck.
    Its a collab i did with a close friend.

    I'm on the second verse.

    I saw you weren’t getting any feedback so I took a listen.
    It sounds OK to me. You are talented.
    I don't know anything about hip hop.
    Honestly I don't see why this song is different from other hip hop songs.
    I did not understand too much of lyrics either but some parts like “mother fuc…” I did understand. Is that MUST in every hip hop song?
    I could hardly hear a bass but it’s probably because my tinny PC speakers at work.

    hey, thanks for responding.
    If I remember right, "MF" was only in the chourus, and other than that, the song didnt include any profanity.

    as far as not understanding the lyrics, theres not much i can do about that.
    I can post them if you'd like, or explain the song.
    but i doubt you care, (which doesnt bother me).

    anyway, thanks for listening. i appreciate it.

    Sounds good. It has too much midrange and treble, needs some lower frequencies to balance it out.

    as far as not understanding the lyrics, theres not much i can do about that.
    Unless its on a two track you can do a LOT. The simplest would be to turn them UP or turn the music DOWN. I can understand them but its a strain on the ears. Rap lyrics are usually WAY up front and dominate the mix.

    The music is fine, its a lil mundane but serves its purpose. Good job.
