kriticque no luck with that Sugar Cane song yet... just an FYI

wienna

Ermmm....ok.

Oluseyi

As a brief aside, tell Jagz a close friend recommends Pro-activ. :p

The song is alright, though he still needs to spend quality time at Oluseyi's School of Rap Lyrics and Cadence Coaching. There's a line where he uses "critic" as a verb - or at least appears to - when he wanted "critique," which has a different syllabic stress. It's little details like that which keep artists who are trying to sound American from succeeding, and thus tank their chances of selling units in the US.

I like the beat, though. It's in the same space as Timbaland's "The Way I Are," for instance. I definitely want to hear more from this guy.

@ Oluseyi u r right he can improve his rap (not that I can rap though)... However, as u said the beat is sick!

kriticque

Mrs.M.I(lol!)

Boondock St.

Nice song, hot beat...@Oluseyi I believe he knows the difference btw critique and critic, wat u need to understand is that in rap u can't just pronounce words as they truly are especially when u are following a rhyme pattern, that is why u find rappers break words up that usually r not meant to be broken apart or the make them sound the way they want it to..

btw 30% if not more of words US artists use are mispronounced intentionally or otherwise for rhyming purposes. Even sentence structure is a problem sef..lol. The reason the so-called "American sounding African" u mention don't sell units per se to the american crowd is not really about accents or mispronunciation but rather different/unrelated messages...their experiences so differ and typical of Americans they are so unwilling to listen to anything different from theirs. When the experiences are now similar (typical of acclimatized immigrants brought up in d US), such artists now have a 1 in a million chance to strike gold...

Jagz is ill. Saw him perform at MI's album listening yesterday at Swe Bar and the shit was wow! The flow...mad men..The Abaga boys are straight ill (and very humble too). ANother artiste to note is: Ice Prince. He's with them Abaga's. See pictures of the album listening party on http://www.werunthings.com
