mfuqua23 Posted October 10, 2008 Report Share Posted October 10, 2008 One more, then no more from me. I have decided that I will try to put together one more of my albums, and then I'm personally done rapping. Things have taken a turn. I'm not quite the same, and neither is what's going on around me. I wanted to keep getting better in how I made my albums and what I did with them. That situation stalled out. Let me explain what seemed to be my process. "From The Penn". - That came out at the end of my senior year in high school. Our/My last days captured what was within and around Wash High while I was there. "Writer On The Block" -That was done in my last days (a few months after actually) at Penn Commercial. What's weird about these 2 cds is that they were done while I still had an easy accessible audience. Now I've done cds without that scenario, but that's kind of, I don't know. Now that I don't really have a "phsycial" audience anymore, making music isn't as easy. Then I get consumed by other things that I want to accomplish. I have it in my head that, I'll make this, and if people happen to hear it, ok. If not, that's cool too. But I'll have it available just in case. So I was originally going to call my album "21...Ways To Flow". (a play on Shanice's '21...Ways To Grow - nice album btw). It was going to be all my ideas, lines, songs, etc. that I did when I was 21. That was slow, and I mostly had lines, beats, sample ideas, and song titles. There wasn't enough, considering what I wanted to do. I didn't want song title ideas when I was 21, and lyrics written when I was 22, which I am now. So the only 2 songs to make this "coming of age" album were the title track, and "My Lady". So I was thinking about what could I call my next album. Something I always would freestyle was, "the F is for Fresh, the U for Understanding/ and Q is for Quality, it's what they demanding. So that's my album title. F.U.Q. (Fresh, Understanding, Quality). I've always been known for my flow, so that could be an F alternative. I don't know when I'll have this album done. I really don't know. I'm thinking of maybe a double disc, because I want to do a "Featuring FuQ" too, so maybe that can be disc 2 of this album. Because there are some songs I have added verses to or would like to. Think when I rapped to "Because of You" w/ NeYo. There are some songs I did in the past that most people haven't heard and some ones I haven't done and meant to for the longest time. Maybe do one big collab with all artists I personally know on one track. Basically, since this is my last rap album, I want to make it count. I'm not discontiuing myself music entirely, just not making it anymore. Well, I'm not rapping anymore. I still got music ideas I want to. But that's another blog. F.U.Q. will be a no fear album. Like, should I really rap to this beat? Should I really say this like that? More than likely, it will be beats already heard or put together by artists. But that's ok, because I'm just having fun with it, and not making money off it. I'll probably put together a "Greatest Hits" (if it's ok to call it that). Songs that have "underground hit" in them (sort of) Like I feel they are so good to me for what they were, and what I said or did on it. Maybe that could be disc 3. I'll figure all this out eventually. FuQ [september 15, 2001 - ???] (the date I started rapping, and the date I ended) ----------------------------------------------------------------- Separate from my blog.... One day, I decided to get links to all my songs I ever posted on this forum and save you guys comments/critques. I TRULY Appreciate any bit of time every single one of you ever gave me to listen to my songs and tell me if they're good or not, and what I could try to do to make them better. Every lyric you ever read. Simply I say thank you. Thanks for being so cool. I haven't been at this forum much anymore, but i don't need to tell you that. What I do in a day now, has changed. If I ever did anything to make somebody mad or anything of the sort, I'm sorry. I know for a fact I owe bigted. BIGTED (so you see it) an apology. I'm guessing we don't talk anymore because I didn't use your skit that we did. I didn't want to ask you to redo it cuz I guess I didn't want to slight you like that. When I think back to what I did with everybody else's, which was much later on, I should've had you do it with no background and used what parts worked (which probably would've been most of it). Only 9 people intially got the cd when I finished it. I don't sell in big numbers. Just whoever wants one. I wish my idea for you to record songs would've went better, because as you know, so many people on this forum respect you and would like to hear bigted on the mic at least once. I even thought that if I ever visit my niece & nephew in NJ, I would find a way to visit you and hook up. But that's not to be. (things of which are some my fault, and some with what goes on around me). Not only you, but Mike Petrow in NJ as well. Mike Petrow (this is personally to you, but others may read). When I saw you rap live, I instantly thought, 'It'd be so cool if we could rap live together. I can just imagine the energy and how dope it would be to share a stage and spotlight with someone else who is into to hip hop like me. We'd be the "White Star" per se (even though i'm not all white)to the Black Star (Kweli & Mos Def). The Dynamic. Sometimes, I think you're so good, that I'm jealous. "Organized Mess" is your underground classic. It's your Eminem "Infinite". It's your Nas "Pre-Illmatic". I call it a classic because of the personal you put into that cd when I listened to it. Where was this Mike Petrow when we did "Pass The Mic"? I let one of my friends hear it, and they said "I'll take your music over his(mine) anyday." i told him, you're just not as open-minded as I am. Of course, you're going to get better. But what a way to capture you're current peaking skill level before you do. This is not my tell-all last post, but I felt the need to say whatever now.
