Lesson about mixtapes and recording

Crazy week. I basically recorded my whole mixtape in 2 days. Here's a lesson don't just go for the stuido with the best equipment make sure you go to someone who knows HIP HOP. Dude I went to was clueless.. I taught him stuff.. He did it just for the money but it was fun to be at a professional place regardless. I know have more expericence then ever. My mixtape is releasing tomorrow and it will have tracks that were edited 100 % by me and some by a sound engineer. This is the beginning. In one year shit.. I should be on a WHOLE OTHER level. I learned a lot. Get ready for the mixtape. 8 PM tomorrow. Thanks for the support!

Happy Birthday and Happy Super Bowl

Special weekend just passed for my family my older brother turned 24 on Saturday.
My little brother turned 13 on Sunday. And of course we celebrated what is probably
my family's most happiest holiday which was the SUPER BOWL. Super Bowl is special to me because back in the day it would be the day we know my father would come home early from work. All the super bowls from what I remember had a good story to them as far as my family for the exception of one day when a lot of chaos happened. But I guess good times and bad times make a day special.

This weekend I saw how my little brother is growing up. I saw how my family tries to make the best out of what we have since we don't have much. My little brother is finally starting to think he is cooler than me and he is starting to care about his appearence a lot. My older brother is finally in a good paying stable job trying to help the family as much as possible and it is much appreciated. I want to thank my family for everything and wish my brothers happy birthday. You can follow the little one on twitter (@antzone2) and the older (@chrisLNieves)

Up and Coming Rapper Tips .. BC 2-Tone!! lol

Some people use controversy to get known, as for myself I want to get known for talent. Controversy will come regardless if I get big so I do not want to feed it.

Some people do not understand rap or they just look for any little thing to judge you.
Therefore I am giving all upcoming rappers a tip on some words to never say in a song or at least not until you believe you can get away with anything or just don't care anymore. Remember people take a lot of things into offense!

1. Do not overuse the use of murder, and violence (and remember its not cool to claim something that is false.

2. The use of Bitch or Hoe or disrespecting females should be limited or eliminated.

3. Just don't say gay or fag. (There is even a south park episode about it season 13)

Other tips

- Don't dis for no reason! and don't get mad and let it show too much in a song
- Leave some things to the imagination. (Do not be TOO literal)
- Don't be afraid to be different in anyway
- Be yourself! and your personality will shine
- If you sound too much like a famous rapper. Change up...
- .. It's okay to have influences!
- Remember being different is not easy CONSIDERING everyone is trying to be different

PS: My Mixtape will be available Feb 26, 2009. Most of the Leaks on will be deleted Feb 4th So grab them now!
