Crooked I – Intro/Rappers Ain’t ShitBR>
Crooked I: I’m gonna open a global website for MCs. It’s an international site for MCs to upload freestyle and music once a week. I’m also doing a five to seven minute web show. It’s a hip-hop variety show that will probably land on different sites. Just to keep the visual hip-hop art form poppin’. Then, in the summer I was thinking about releasing these tapes I have called The Dream Tapes. I wasn’t even going to tell the public about this, but it’s been happening my whole life – I dream verses, song ideas and hooks when I’m sleeping. So what I do is, sometimes I wake up and I record them with a micro-cassette recorder that I keep on my dresser. Sometimes the material when I’m dreaming and the rhymes I’m thinking of are kind of abstract. Sometimes it’s kind of weird, but I guess that’s because of some subconscious flavor in it or whatever. But I’m gonna release these Dream Tapes. And I know these won’t be something that everybody will get into, but there’s going to be some hip-hop heads who wanna hear what it sounds like when the dude goes to sleep and dreams a rap. So I’m gonna put that out and just show the world that, hey, this is me. I do this when I’m sleeping, I do this when I’m awake, I’m hip-hop to the fullest. I just can’t wait, I’m excited to see the outcome. ‘Cause some people might be like, “That’s some weird shit, he needs to stop that.” [Laughs] (via)
