Anytime a new artist approach a mic and begins to develop their voice one can always plan for growing pains. That is what Shaded Revenge gives us with We Ain’t Mad, along with his counterpart Xelous. Producer, Premise on the Beat, did a great job at hitting all the levels of right with the track produced by SR. The track sets its self-up as a dis track that serves the right artist well. Let us expand more.
WHEN DOES IT WORK FOR AN ARTIST TO START LAYING DIS TRACKS?
Simple, when they proved themselves. Let’s look at the most recent example, Marshall Mathers and Machine Gun Kelly, the pop star turned hardcore rapper who decided to dis the King to boost record sales. Good strategy BTW, I know it worked. Unfortunately, I don’t think the Kids Choice Awards will welcome you back this year, another one bites the dust rap devil. Respectfully, Eminem and MGK both have sold enough records, made the top 100 charts and have stayed consistent with new and fresh material year after year. No MC has ever started a career with a dis, why, it’s negative energy. Earn your stripes, make money and a lot of it and then have some fun and start talking shit…because you can afford to do so.
BACK TO THE TRACK
We ain’t mad seems to be a mix of two guys talking about mass-murdering someone’s attitude with money, yet there seems to be a lack thereof.
White boi, should I be working in NASA…
Past of the evidence, don’t give me decadence…
Sever them, bury them, forgot to remember them…
Heaven sent, temper bent, the pressure I put on em’,
I see them tumbling, hustling, mumbling, fumbling, crumbling,
Numbers be doubling, nothing to nothing…
Move away from easy words like white boi and inserting big words like decadence into the same paragraph as be doubling doesn’t make it sound better.
Lyrical Flow: 3
Needs more work on the Lyrics and message. Once those are crafted with more intention you will notice your bars flow a lot more smoothly.
