Bonus track off Rom's upcoming album Sick Day. I made the beat! [more inside]
Dream pop meets hip hop full on, and the mesh essentially delivers what feels like a natural sound, as if that is how it was intended to be all along. This track is somewhat on the dark side, accentuated by both the underlying music and vocals, hear's an earbite for you, care of Canadian-Ukrainian duo Ummagma & Canadian rapper Drake. [more inside]
This is a hip-hop/rap song dedicated to Fomalhaut, a proto-planetary star of the constellation Pisces [more inside]
We once used to wonder what it would sound like to whip up a healthy feisty mix of dream pop and hip hop - rap and now, thanks to this tasty earbite, we have an idea. Definitely taking a walk on the dark side, underlined by both the music and vocals, this is still definitely worth the listen.
A short rap song about the devil for the music challenge. [more inside]
This a remix of an earlier drumline-based song by me using an a capella rap recorded by 3 MCs and allowed for use — the fusion makes a nice catchy result.

Some hip hop about the ecstasies of vintage clothing and related minutiae. NSFW [more inside]

MeFi Music could use a little more rap, don't you think? Here's a song from our second album dealing with friends of a new significant other running interference on your blossoming relationship. (I perform the first and third verse.) Lyrics within. [more inside]
I'm getting back into my decade-old hip-hop project Cap City Mob, and have learned a few new tricks, as well as improved my lyrics and maybe my skills. Here's a taste of one I did this evening. [The not-so-kid-friendly lyrics inside.] [more inside]
My friends made a rap song...then they asked me to remix it for an album they're releasing soon. Here is the result. It samples the amazing reggae song, Uptown Top Ranking by Althea and Donna.
A nerdcore track I was commissioned last year for someone who wanted me to write and record a track of Nyarlathotep aka The King In Yellow dissing the Dread Cthulhu. This joint does contain bleeped-out curses. [more inside]
For all the hip-hop fans hiding in the tall grass around the perimeter of MeFi Music. [more inside]

With piano ivories, shimmering vocals and far too much sincerity, I have transmographied the Beastie Boys' energetic party-chant into a mostly miserable, quasi-beautiful, semi-epic, completely human piano ballad. [more inside]
Playful hip hop song about a typical summer night in Portland with me and my friends. Beats by me (kapn.fülz), mic work by myself and partner on all my rap tracks, Juicy Karkass. [more inside]
NSFW, for the love of god, NSFW. Hyper offensive porno rap about Gerontophilia. [more inside]
puff it, pass it, instant classic 505 where the beat was crafted [more inside]
Science fiction rap, Mefi references [more inside]
by Fantastic Plastic Mims; my first foray into the mashing of up. Please be kind, this took me well over ten minutes.
Hip-hop has been a passion of mine for a long time. And recently, some friends of mine and I got together to produce an entire album. This is the latest effort from me, as featured on our upcoming album. Sure, it's a demo, but it's free!
Another "can it be a rap song?" From the point of view of an elf that worships the a-bomb ("the hallowed ground is los alamos..."). It's only 2 minutes but it's packed, pay attention. There is nothing like this, I would say modestly, so I don't know what will happen when people hear it. The elf is a theme on the album... a nuclear terrorist in this case.
