KIRA – Machine Gun – TOB Rap Remix

So this is a Monday post and not a Sunday post. Only guy I think I should apologize to is myself here, considering how obscure I am, but surprisingly, I’m now feeling little to no regret about and a lot of gratitude and joy for the delays I had to go through for this production. I mean, I have a history of being a pretty impatient control freak, and I still need to be served many cans of whoop-ass for that and a lot more stuff. And of course, there’s the production itself, which I started two or three years ago and somehow managed to get to this point where I feel like I’m really pulling out all the stops with it, especially compared to everything else I’ve done before. So yeah, again, any actual good that comes out of this is ultimately thanks to God.

Now, more technical stuff. Remix lyrics were aimed to be English with some Tagalog in the first place, and the start of the first rap verse once had an attempt at referencing the beef between Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem, which eventually got replaced by Devil May Cry references as life subtly reminded me to be less like a clout-chasing rapper wannabe and try being more like the nerd that I actually am. Recording was definitely a challenge, too, especially considering how I went rough with my voice. Mixing and mastering was handled by Shigeru again, and while this sort of production is new to him, he managed to nail the roughness I was aiming for. Illustration was handled by OK!NA again, too, and there was a delay in making it, but in the end, she managed to deliver a very hilariously awesome result along with some motivating tips on making the video. And speaking of the video, I’m especially glad about my decision to make it 1080p instead of the usual 720p.

So yeah, I guess this whole production is another lesson on how change, especially delays, can be good. Praise and thanks be to God very much again!

Now here’s a link to the mp3 and a link to the lyrics sheet. Credit and link me if you’re using my stuff out there, yo.

And of course, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated~
