Tobby’s Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation 9

If you find the above link showing up weird, then that’s because I didn’t start writing this post on my computer, which messed up hard on me again.

But that aside, I’d like to say that I still had some worthwhile times with these despite the harder struggles. Oh, and I got sick trying to be sicker, alright, hahaha~ XD

Now, shout-out to Pharaoh Beatz, yo. Every beat used in this set is a beat made by him, see. 🙂

  1. BREAKDOWN (Dark Underground Type Beat)
  2. LIGHT (Migos Type Beat)
  3. STREET FIGHT (Dark Hard Trap Type Beat)
  4. DINERO (Old School Boom-Bap Hip-Hop Beat)
  5. Syrup (Young Thug Type Beat)
  6. Whippin It (Drake x Tay Keith Type Beat)

Now, I’mma go chill some more. Do leave me some honest constructive feedback as well, yo! \(*A* )

Tobby’s Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation 7

I think I just made a comeback with me sounding more like a clown, but then again, clowns can be nightmares haunting not only during childhood but also during older years. I mean, come on, just ask Stephen King.

That’s no excuse for me to not do better, though. Turn me into a generator some more, then, yo~

Now, a PARENTAL ADVISORY – EXPLICIT CONTENT for these original tracks whose beats I rapped over:

Tobby’s Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation 6

Stress got me spitting, but they aren’t always great spits, so yeah, I’ll need some honest constructive feedback from you peeps for my next mixtures.

Wait, isn’t that supposed to be at the end of the post? Well, whatever, I feel like messing around some more right now. Perhaps I should make this more regular like what I’ve been intending to do with my fanfic writing, too…

Now, linking to them original tracks whose beats I rapped over here, complete with PARENTAL ADVISORY – EXPLICIT CONTENT:

  1. Travis Scott – goosebumps ft. Kendrick Lamar
  2. Joyner Lucas – Winter Blues
  3. Lil Wayne – A Milli

And now, back to trying to work in ways that are also fun…

Tobby tried to sing “Reversible Campaign”

Say hello to the likely only post (monthly update post aside) of this month.

What am I up to right now, though? Spontaneous Tobbyworks and a crash-course midyear/summer term, yo.

Oh, and I feel like the high speed and pressure of this university term I’m going through influenced my decision to cover this hard and fast song by DECO*27. So yeah.

Also, I feel like my audio engineering sense has been improving recently. And yes, I’ve been getting feedback behind the scenes, but hey, more feedback from you peeps, both in quantity and quality (like, honest constructive, especially!), is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated~

Now, here’s the mp3.

Tobby’s Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation 5

I had headaches while making the first three freestyles, which were made in the same day (the fourth was made some weeks later), and I felt like I was really pushing my skills to the limit there.

Rest is still important, though, so yeah, better take care of myself better.

Also, I decided to rap over famous beats this time. Below is a list of the beats I freestyled over in the vid above:

  1. Drake – Hotline Bling
  2. Migos – Get Right Witcha
  3. Eminem – The Real Slim Shady
  4. Desiigner – Panda

I’ll have to warn you, though: PARENTAL ADVISORY – EXPLICIT CONTENT

I hope your parents are truly mature, though, kids.

Anyway, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated! \(*A*)/

ephemeral – TOB Vocal Arrange Cover

To be honest, this was delayed for some months due to visual production reasons, but hey, this is now here, and I’m feeling pretty confident about it!

…well, unless you’re talking about the illustration. I’m not sure if I ever grew up much with that…

Anyway, though I like how I got my lyrics flowing in terms of sound, how they flow in terms of ideas is something that probably needs more work, considering what I’ve learned in times like Poetry classes. As I’ve learned, I got skill with sound, but I tend to tell more than show when it comes to my ideas and messages and stuff.

And hey, I’d like to thank Isaac Owens very much for letting me write and record over his track! His work here makes me think of outer space, if you ask me!

Now, here’s a link to the lyrics sheet, and here’s a link to the mp3.

Honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated! \(^o^ )

Tobby tried to sing “Yuudachi no Ribbon”

Brought to you by instinctive picking and working, trial-and-error performance and engineering, and long-ass uploading and marketing. And lately, the third one takes the most effort, it seems. I guess I understand better how my fave singers and musicians take so long with their uploading and all that again, then. Welp-dee-doo.

Anyway, I guess this is a somewhat appropriate upload, considering the rain here lately. Why I picked this song to cover last month, well, it came from wanting to record some singing during my free time in my family’s house, and I guess I was feeling like going dramatic, so yeah. Perhaps a renewed interest in Mikito-P through having bunch of his works in my Spotify playlist also had major involvement there, too.

Oh, and going more into making vocal recording cut-ups in the making of this cover was a fun experience, yo~

English subtitles? Well, I haven’t been feeling like putting those up lately, unless the official vid has English subtitles. That, and I feel like challenging you all to learn the language yourselves, though I still understand if you’d rather look for a conveniently present translation. But hey, things get lost in translation, so…yeah.

Now, here’s the mp3 of this song cover.

And hey, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated! \(^o^ )

Tobby’s Freestyle Rap Practice Compilation 4

I’m back with my longest freestyle rap practice compilation so far, with a big chunk of it being me trying to freestyle over a certain song by Bruno Mars…and I just realized that I had some little slip-ups with the chorus lyrics.

But eh, I don’t care. Send me your honest constructive feedback, anyway, yo.

Also, sending thanks to my sister for them shades~ \(^o^)

Oh, and as for the first two clips, they’re in Filipino. So yeah. 🙂

My First Set of GarageBand-Produced Tracks

I tried out GarageBand on my phone last month and produced the two above tracks, much to the annoyance of one visiting friend of mine whom I had invited for a birthday/Christmas hangout at my family’s house, as I had been focusing more on getting a better handle on the app and making “Hiphoppity” while he was sitting across me. That very likely also had something to do with him calling the track something that can be usually found in low-budget porn some time later when I showed it off to him and our other visiting friends as well.

Anyway, although I don’t think my technical and theoretical music skills are that sharp yet, how the tracks turned out makes me think that I may have more of an inclination towards music than I thought. With that, I’m missing playing an acoustic guitar even more…

So yeah, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated. 🙂
