Tracklisting for my new hip-hop album
As most of you know, I am an aspiring hip-hop artist, and have been working on my album for quite some time now. Well, the time is here that I can announce several of the tracks on my upcoming album, with a short description of each of them.

- Let me tell you some things about me - This song is an introduction to my rapping persona. In it, I will tell you about some of my exploits, and through those stories you will learn something about my character. You will also learn about many of my possessions, because I will tell you all about them. During the chorus, some people will ask what my name is, and I will spell it or repeat it several times (still hammering out the chorus). I am thinking about having an alter ego, possibly going by the name Timmy Analog, or maybe just one name, like Garry.
- I have a sensitive side - This song is all about how even though I am really tough and from the street, I can also be very sensitive, as in with the ladies. Ne-Yo will sing on the chorus, about how I did something wrong, but it's because of my tough upbringing, and that I won't screw up again.
- My hometown is great - This song talks about my hometown, and how wonderful it is. I will describe how, in my hometown, everybody knows me, and there are several places where I go, and I then tell you what they are. My hometown contains several people who are great at rapping, and I will allow them to each rap for one verse of this song.
- I used to sell drugs - In this song, I will talk all about my days when I used to sell drugs, because that was the only way to survive on the tough streets which I grew up on. Now I am a famous rapper, and I don't do that anymore, but even then I was the best at it, and I was fairly rich from it. Dealing drugs can be very violent, but I will only refer to the violence in general terms.
- Man, is it hard being a famous rapper - This song talks about the perils of fame, the kind of fame that comes with being a successful and famous rapper. For instance, beautiful women are only with me sexually (sometimes 2 or 3 at a time) because I have money and am good at rapping. I would rather that they be with me sexually because of my eyes being a certain color, and how I let them go in doors before me. The other difficult thing about being a famous rapper is that when I hit someone with my car or strike a government official, everybody makes a big deal about it.
- I am good at pleasing women (sexually) - In this party song, I will rap all about sex and how I am good at it with women, who are always beautiful, and sometimes more than one at a time. This may seem to contradict the previous song, but that is evidence of my conflicted, complex persona. I will use many clever metaphors in my raps which, if you think about them, you can figure out that I am really talking about certain sexual activities. For instance, any time I refer to any kind of stick, I'm probably talking about my genitals. You'll have to figure out the rest for yourself!
- Let me tell you about more of my possessions - In the song introducing myself, I told you about many of my possessions. Now, I will talk about even more of them. I haven't finished this song yet, but as of right now in the first verse I am planning on telling you (in rap form) about all of the flat panel television sets that I own. I even have some old style CRT television sets which I store in my garage, but I don't think I'll rap about those.
Is there any possibility you could include a track about your time in prison and the spiritual breakthrough that occurred? In the song, you could describe how your time alone allowed you to ponder your past transgressions and determine who your real friends were. In addition, you could outline your discovery of God and claim that He is the only one who will be able to judge what you've done in the past. I'm thinking some bells or piano in the background would really liven this one up.
The fact you're Atheist should just add to your conflicted, complex persona.
Yvette: You offer a great suggestion... I will work on 10 skits to fill out the rest of the album.
Joynt: I like your prison song idea, but I think on my debut album it should be about how I got to prison, and everybody thought I would get my ass kicked because I'm a famous rapper, but instead I kicked everyone else's ass, and I was like the leader of the whole prison. Then on my next album I will have a prison redemption song.
Also, you should be taking favorably about your current record label so that when you release your next album on your own label, you can denounce the former label furiously.
Do you still have a link to funny stories and quotes? I have a lot of time on my hands.
No I took those offline, because they had people's names on them and everything and I didn't want anyone not getting jobs because prospective employers googled them and found out about their pseudo-homoerotic ski trip shenanigans.
If you're album is about how you got to prison then it should include a circa 2003 rap called "Straight outta Cambridge." Obviously, the rap includes how you thugged around the local basketball cages and schooled the locals with your fake pass lay-ups. You were sent to prison because you copied open source code, which seems impossible and totally legal, but was a left wing conspiracy after a rumor you joined the NRA.
Sorry for not proofing my comment and poor grammar. "Your" should take the place of "You're." GO PACK!!!
