Listen to that and tell me what you think. I've worked with this guy back in Mississippi before creating rap instrumentals. I talked to him a little while ago about working on some more stuff together and hopefully getting some of the rappers he knows to rap over it and us doing a small release. Anyway, this is an instrumental I did today. Rap isn't my favorite genre, but I've had fun working with people in it. So yeah, I'm just looking for critiques and advice.

You people? WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU PEOPLE!?

Hardest part of making beats is finding good drum samples, which you need to work on. That synth-hook you have should be either replaced or paired with a good sample. It's not bad, but is a bit overly-simplistic as well as a tad too down-tempo for me. Ok for just fucking around and not even being a genre that you're really into, though.

I liked the beat but it didn't really sound like a rap beat to me (not that there is such a thing). Sounded kind of like what you'd hear in ridge racer, like menu music or something.

Anyway kind of what R_Z said. Concentrate primarily on the drums. They don't have to be super complicated, in fact I think maybe in this song they are too complicated, a lot of beat changes. Work on a sample that works with the drums.

I'll say don't try to go into it just saying, "I want to make a rap song" then make some super simple song. Just make a cohesive song first, one that has all the sounds working together. If the first 30 seconds sound dope then you've got a good rap song.
