One thing I really like about your flow is that you enunciate all your words and it's not so fast that I can't actually hear what you're saying. Love the hook with the female vocals - the melodic nature of it provides a nice balance to your vocal parts. Strong message in this one, too. One very nit picky thing that I noticed when listening is the part where it says "welcome to the world where we would say we're not racist, then turn around and say some stuff that's racist." I really wanted to hear a short pause after that sentiment because I think it's a very simple and true observation about our society and instead of launching right into the next line, it seemed almost strange not to allow a beat for that line to sink in. But otherwise I think it's great!
The "worst diss ever" refrain is very reminiscent of Eminem's style, to me. I like the beat of this track but to me it's not as strong as the other track I heard from you recently. The word "diss" in general has such a cheesy 90s connotation to it now that it's hard for me to take anyone using it seriously. You're definitely a talented MC but I think I actually prefer your more serious content, though this song is pretty clever.
I love this! The heavy bass and beats overall have this great, old school hip hop vibe, and you're a really talented MC. I was honestly skeptical of the "altercation with Satan" description but this track is fresh and real and I'm into it! You fit a lot in under 2 minutes, too. If I had to share a critique it would only be that the secondary sort of echo-y voice doesn't really add anything for me. I'm so impressed though!
