Hear me out.

I’ve played in bands the last five years and although I love booking shows and making music, I got really fed up with having to rely on so many musicians for so many things, only for a lot of them to flake out or be completely unreliable.
Since the last band I was in fell apart, I started writing raps, because I’m not a terrific singer and I love lyrics.
I really, really miss performing, and I still definitely want to write rap music, but I don’t want to get a whole bunch of guys together again just so half of them can be no-shows, or completely uninterested, etc.
I have this idea, and I know it might sound very one dimensional or not like a great idea to some people, but what if there was a two-peice rap group consisting of only the rapper and a drummer? It might sound like there wouldn’t be much you could do with that, but I think given the right time and effort, something like that could be fucking cool. We would definitely have a unique sound from anyone else, we wouldn’t have to worry about anyone else flaking on us, and I feel like with just two people we could get a whole lot more done that way.
A rapper and a drummer. That’s it. It could be a totally rad idea or it could be really stale, but I’m confident that it can work and I’m willing/wanting to try.
I put out a mixtape yesterday so you can hear 10 tracks worth of my lyrics here:
Obviously, the instrumentals are not the kind of sound I’m going for.
I’m always working on new material and would love to get in a room with a bad ass drummer and figure out things creatively.
Hope to hear from you soon!
