[PLANNING THREAD] The Ultimate-Guitar Community Hip Hop Album

Well, would you?

I know there are quite a few UG albums going on at the moment, but we'll take it slow and stuff. There are lots of hip hop fans on UG, so if you wanna make a song, this is an opportune moment.



Guidelines/FAQ
  • There is no deadline for this. I'm thinking of a mid-2012 release, but we'll probably end up going beyond that.
  • You will need to submit a 320 kbps MP3 file [preferably encoded with the latest LAME] or a lossless file like WAV or FLAC.
  • You must have a unique artist name. This means your username isn't sufficient. Some of us scrobble UG albums to Last.FM, so having "dirty" tags is kinda annoying. However, if your username is something like chaoticfables or NothingRocks, you can modify it to Chaotic Fables or Nothing Rocks, and it'll be some cool shit.
  • Collaborations are an integral part of hip hop, so if you wanna collaborate with your fellow Pit Monkeys, please do so.
  • You can do absolutely any sort of hip hop you want to. It can be trip hop, instrumental, conscious, alternative, gangsta, club/party, grime, jazz rap, anything that is even remotely hip hop. Here's a long list of hip hop subgenres.
  • Sampling is cool, and you can sample to your heart's content. Just don't mention your sources so that we don't get bullied by our corporatebros.
  • Covers aren't cool because we wanna promote original works. inb4 sampling isn't original, lulz.
  • If you wanna participate in the album, send me a PM detailing the following:

    Code:
    I am interested in producing for others: Yes/No I am interested in rapping/singing for others: Yes/No/Rapping Only/Singing Only I am interested in collaborating with others: Yes/No

  • If you have any other questions, post in this thread, and I'll answer your question.

Ahhhhh I want to do this as well but I absolutely suck at making hip-hop plus I can't do vocals

Anyway, this is the best I can do so far

Does it have to have vocals or can it be an instrumental?

I think vocals are rather instrumental (lol) to hip-hop, but if someone was down to collab, you could probably submit something.

Whatever you like.

I'm using the term "hip hop" because it's the simplest term available. You can basically do absolutely anything that falls under the umbrella hip hop. Instrumental stuff, trip hop, club/party hip hop, conscious hip hop, gangsta hip hop, grime... you get the idea.

I was thinking of doing some more Nujabes-like and doing instrumental hip-hop. But if I need vocals, I'll gladly do a collab.

Man, this album is gonna end up being 70% instrumental. Anyway, hriday, I have a couple of beats I need to finish so I may make a new track for this. That or I'll make my current actual song better quality. We'll see.


Edit - Honestly with the way this thing looks like it's shaping up, I might just jack somebody's track and use it. Seems I'll have a lot of choices.

If Nujabes-style is okay, I'll think about doing this!

I can freestyle like a motherfucker but my accent makes it sound goofy as shit. Passing on it, but will keep close watch on it.

Fair point, but that isn't exactly comforting.

Have you ever heard a Canadian? We don't make good rappers.

This is the only canadian rapper I've ever heard.




Needless to say, you owe it to yourself and your country to come out and represent

I've updated the OP with a FAQ of sorts. Hopefully, that'll answer the preliminary questions.

An important thing we need to address is the concept of sampling. Just because this will be a free album doesn't mean we can do as we please. We're still using the UG banner, after all. Granted, we probably won't be targeted by anyone since we're a big bunch of lonely wimps, but still.

Thoughts on this?

Would love to do something for this. Been experimenting with glitch hop, would be very willing to work closer to actual hip-hop.

I'm also down to produce tracks/beats for those who are interested in rapping.
