Pedro's Corner

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

If you're in a studio you can rap full volume at a distance from the mic and the producer will have all the frequencies and can rock with it.
Here I can do a limited volume with a hand held mic which only registers a limited range and I have no knowledge of engineering at all and zero mixers.
II come up with good results now and then which is a miracle. But I have potential! Because I like to actually rap, like loud, good.

Yeah, that's the pickle, isn't it?

More important than knowing it is feeling it.

I already told you all the ways I think you can try. You were most disdainful of them, which is your right.

I'm just releived at the clarity, but not even, at the thirst.

Rap motherfucker Rap master P
And I rap to the saps like I rap to the bees
And I rap to the sacks like I rap to the mes
Issola same when you-a rockin like me

Cause I'm

Scandalous
Straight manganfarious
Roll through the jungle like Al Jaff-arius

Uh

Rap master nefarious
And I break it to the beat like I'm a gladius

I think the key is, me personally, that it's about a lot more than self expression.

You wanna conquer.

Or you wanna say something.

Anyway, it's not just about yourself. You didn't invent rap. You want to become lord of the game, not of your inner voice or whatever. Inner voice is the weakest lie I ever heard. All and every single giant ever stood on giants.

Only Kurt Cobain could get by on self-expression. But even he crafted his voice with ruthless precision, not to self-express, but to fucking conquer.

Anyways, on one thing we agree.

You need to get in a fucking studio and be loud. Fight it out with the muses. This humility, it's unbefitting.

"More important than knowing it is feeling it."

But this is utter nonsense. You saw the fucking way it went with Eazy. You could give me some input, like a trillionth of what easy got from Dre, by just saying which tracks suck, and it would be of supreme use to me, but... Such is my luck.

My Venus is on the same degree as Cobains.

They all suck, except the ones from the cave. And that was the Christian Cross. That was flow. Nothing was left on the table.

But me, I'm waiting till you unleash the evil.

I liked Now King Kong, but probably because it was the first time I heard my rhymes rapped.

In my scheme here, those cave raps were the second category: you have something to say.

Those I do not believe you can control. Or you can, but only by guiding the universe into the set of circumstances that produce it.

I think will to conquer is the ticket for an intentional rapper.

Also, Cobain had no thug in him.

You do.

Plus you have a fucking pristine understanding of the craft. That's why it feels like you're making fun of me.

Rather than a larger point, this is to make a more vainglorious point about how I'm right about giants standing on giants. This was Cobain's best song ever, and it was a straight rip from some bluesman.

We do have very different tastes in music. These converged in the cave but diverge outside of it.

Still, of these 4 tracks from the Mag5 account I don't actually believe you think they suck - given also youve appreciated the top two last year.
Posting this for my own sake, as you left me extremely confused and defeated by saying all that music sucks, where you first said it was pure gold. I take your judgment far too seriously for my own good, has always been the case as you know.

https://soundcloud.com/taurusvision/collegial-gait
https://soundcloud.com/taurusvision/to-a-biggie-beat
https://soundcloud.com/taurusvision/no-abe
https://soundcloud.com/taurusvision/chapter-of-eve

Especially these last two I am convinced of some objective quality. Last being more reggae than rap, and full freestyle.
What happened in the Cave was a reaction between our musical tastes. Normal that you prefer that above other shit I did. I prefer work you did in the cave over what do did outside of it as well.

We could make a truly great album together if we have a real studio and an engineer. That would work, convergence would be forced and I do think we have power to add to each other.

Maybe that will happen. Would be very nice.

That's the shit I like to hear. I think I'm gonna need it. I won't try to clarify my criticism, I think you are right.

You know I am a man, one of the very few men, with actual taste. I got away with making music without talent purely on taste.

Naturaly, a true artist like you would consider my opinion important, my judgement on quality. However, I do absolutely believe that no great artist was ever made by listening to people like me. It's restrictive. An artist is not a horse, is a lion.
