View Full Version : METROID-Kraid Hip Hop
11-06-2006, 05:40 AM
Okay so I've been tossing around this idea for some time and with my recent purchase of Logic 7 :D I have come up with this song.
It is Kraid's Lair from Metroid. A very well known and often used song, but never been done as a rap song. Here's what I've got so far. Any comments help, and or rap lyrics would be appreciated. (I am white and and I can't rap worth a damn :P)
Go ahead gimme the good the bad and the ugly:

One important thing you have to remember with "songs", rather than music, is that too much variation can be a bad thing. Most songs have the main parts, and a chorus.

I know, I know. I've been MIA for a while but now I'm back. I had a good Ganon remix going but I lost it because something terrible went wrong with GB and it won't play it. Fear not! My WIP will make the deadline!
Just to let you know I've got a lot on my plate.
Pokemon Project (3 songs)
Mega Man 4 Project (1 song)
CtC Project (1 song)
Remix: ThaSauce Arbiter
Newgrounds MAC6 November (1 song)
Not to mention un-internet stuff like school, 2 jobs, a girlfriends, family, friends....

Yeah? Don't worry 'bout it.
If need be, I suppose I could extend the deadline for circumstances.
I'm a nice guy.

This totally needs some lyrics. 'Fraid I can't help there, but its damn nice. And without lyrics, I can't really give much feedback beyond "nice, give us some more". =/
Good to see you are putting logic to good use, though

Yes! hip hop
In classic N64 golden eye award style I ask:
Where's the bass?
the part going from 0:52 is pretty cool. But, the strings are overpowering. And especially once that synth comes in at 1:12, you can barely hear the drums at all.
Its not that "changes" are bad...I think that although unorthodox in genres they have the potential to make really cool songs, if used properly...but here there's just too much stuff going on and the drums are getting drowned out. I did like the switch-up with the piano though.
I never heard the original so I can't really comment on the arrangement.
Good effort so far though
EDIT: hahaha i had my bass turned all the way down when i first listened to it. Now everythings sounds better. But I still basically stand by the things I said before, just to a lesser extent. I think you should have some sort of bassline goin' instead of only having the kick for the bass. It doesn't have to be something too complex for this song.
Just my thoughts.
