View Full Version : If you had the chance to make an album....

Doesn't matter wheather you mc or not this is strictly hypothetical, if you were a rapper and was given sufficient resources who would you want to produce your album? and who would feature on it? assuming you would want features, also as a bonus question which label would you sign with?

After enough people post their replys I will give my reasons as to why I asked.
They can be from any country but please give some description of the vibe of that particular persons work.

Ok I'll start

First off I wouldn't want more than four producers on my album because I believe the tracks should just flow from each other, my choices for who would produce would be...

Stoupe (his orchestral sounds would be a great way to kick things off)
Rza (goes without saying, his music would carry a great raw vibe throughout)
Premo (I could never leave him out, that boom bap would be great for those street singles)
9th Wonder (I like the mellow vibe of his beats, he can do great head nodding shit or some cool layed back music, perfect way to end the album)

As far as guests I would keep it limited to just three...

Gza
MF Doom
Redman

It was hard to choose but I chose these three for the different vibes I would get from each.

As far as a label, more than likley I would choose Babygrande, they carry themselves well and promote well too.

label: baby grande, you get ok distribution, and artistic freedom

producers
premo, just premo if possible, but if i had to have another, i would have one or two tracks produced by madlib

guests
rae, his verses are fire right now
kweli, same
gift of gab, and zion i we could get together on some real northern cali hip hop shit

If I had one guy doin' the whole thing I'd go for Stoupe circa 2003-2004

Guests, man, I'd wanna do the solo thing but there's a lot of peoples, Masta Ace would be my first, a load of others. It'd be cool to do a joint called "Bless the Mic With the Gods" and get a shitload of legends on there like Rakim and KRS and Kane and G Rap, etc.

Label - Day by Day

Guest - Ern Dawgy, Graveyard shifter , Jon Dough , MC Cosm ... shit the list goes on and on.


Producers - Lord Zero, DJ Yohan solo , Conz.


I choose day by day as the label because there is much promise in that label and not many ppl are trying to get on at the moment.

I choose these artist because they are independent artist that got the hunger and I see them going far with the right help.


Same goes for the producers as for the guest spots.

Good thread, Latin.

Me personally, I don't care much for sales. My take on why I make music is really different from others. Really, I do it for the listeners. The way I look at it, I just want to put art out there that's different from the rest. I want to put out variety so I can add on to the selection pool for listeners of rap.

The core of my producionwould come from: Skwirm, The beholder, and Soul Mechanix from the Foundation Unit: www.soundclick.com/thefoundationunit

And Planet Formation: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?CurrentPage=1&bandID=263779

I'd like to work with Havoc from Mobb Deep.

With other beats comming from several different sources on soundclick.


People I'd collabo with: Hmm, I'll keep it simple. I'll work with a friend of mine, Adrian, & people I know, Frank Wit: www.soundclick.com/frankewhitt --no cats from the industry. I'd hit up the last guest spot with a friend of mine, Key rogue.

Label: Ahh, give me any underground label with good studio. All I want is to get my shit out with good quality. I can market it myself.

Damn....
ok....
Mine would have to be a double-disc, because I want to have it half and half. One side, more boom-bap and old school, the other side more mellow and spiritual.

First Disc_
Production: 9th Wonder, RZA, The Beatnuts, DJ Muggs, Cilvaringz.

Second Disc_
Production: DJ Hi-Tek, Pete Rock, Blockhead, DJ Honda, Prince Paul.
Guest Spots: Black Thought, Mighty Mos Def, Killah Priest, Bronze Nazareth, The Juggaknots.

Label_

Okay when you say significant resources do you mean money? No guidlines no one telling me what to do just give me some money to make an album?

Label: Afrocentric. first I am going to create a budget so that I can have some advertisement money and invest little to none towards guess produces and emcess

Guess: Only two I would consider that's not local are AZ and black thoughts. Notice I said consider

Production: I'll get productions from heads around the way and lesser know but decent priced Producers.

Let's say a Significant amount was 5 million

The allocation

I'm going to spend anywhere from 500k to 1.5 million on promotion.
I'm spending "up to" one million on productions, so I will have the cheaper but good beats 15. Some I'll make myself others my brother in law. Since I'm going to do a few maybe 3 or 4 I am going to save money.

Guess appearences, one to three other emcess from around my way. No one spectacular. The guess emcess is going to be on a 1 million dollar budget but again I am not going to have but on to three. I believe an album should be all him, and not to many guests not even if you are in the same group. That's why I believe wu as a solo flop. Most solo wu from the past was carried by the whole clan. So I don't want that I want to carry it myself.

I'm not going to be talking about rims, front, street life, or anything else that ahve been over played since the early 90s. I'm not going to promote blackness, but awareness. More like a cause and effect.

Unlike something some else I do want to sale big. You can love all day but at the end of the night love doesn't pay the bills

I estimate that I might have about 2 million if lucky to just chill with. I'm not going to get broke paying off a Rza or large profession. And I have no money coming in off the album that's crazy. Fuck love, I have a woman for that. Fuck love I have a family for that. I have to eat. I spend 3 million I should make 6 million.

Second album, I'll bring on AZ, black thoughts, Kweli, Young Joc and lupe.

Third album Bizzy bone, Inspectah deck, lil jon, rick ross and lyfe and Avant

First album I want it to be all me no guest. Second album is going to be chapter 2. ten albums one book about I'm telling a story. I will retire

Word, I feel what the last guy said. It's better to work with local heads or people that you know and are cool with because vibe is so intrigal to any recording being successful.

As much as I like mainstream artist, I just can't see myself being on the same wave of thought with someone like Nas that lives in a different atmosphere, breathes a different air, and sees life differently than my peoples do.

Graveyard shift
10-15-2006, 12:39 AM
The feel is going to be an uplifting feel you know. The vibe you get is that you don't have to be a shot caller or baller to be successful black people. I want to make people aware of what's going on and what we need to change.

The whole going to jail and killing people is wack and the whole buying up a lot of rims and fronts in only make the whites rich and you look stupid. The feel is conscious, it's awareness it's not streets and prison, it's a fell of hiphop develope your own mentality own persona. Which is why I chose AZ and Blackthoughts because I feel they have their own persona and they kick shit people needs to hear.


Man, that's the smartest thing I've read in a while. Peace to Africa, my brother. My family is Nigerian.

I feel a lot of what you said, granted I never spoke about what I would rhyme about but it wouldn't be about cars, rims and all that bullshit, also I ain't no gangsta so I wouldn't talk about bustin guns either at least not from my perspective.
All I've ever known is poverty, I don't mean borderline homlesness but just struggling to stay afloat both in the uk where I live and my family in Colombia.
This is what I would rhyme about, poverty, the struggle,political issues regarding the uk and latin america but also everyday life.

ps. you through me off completely at the end with lil Jon and Rick Ross wtf?

That's the thing, people take music as a profession. For me, it would only be a hobby. Who the hell wants music to be their profession? That's a joke. All your work would be a fuckin' product.

Then why not rap about rims and bitches if your taking it as a profession?

WuGambino
10-15-2006, 03:52 PM
First off I'd produce all of my album, half of the songs would be instrumentals and itd be 12 songs long includin intro/outro so I'd have 5 songs with guests.
They'd be (in no order):
1. Method Man & U-God
2. Raekwon
3. Redman
4. Del Tha Funkee Homosapien
5. Q-Tip & Common
... and if I could I'd have Ol' Dirty on the Intro/Outro's

Don't really give a shit about the label, and I only spent a few mins on the guest spots I''l prbably think of someone else when I post this.
Oh I'd also wanna have Aim and DJ Shadow to co-produce a track each... y'know cos you gotta learn from the masters.


Props for the dope thread.


OK Edit: I'd also have Kate Rogers and Dido singing on a track each, maybe Dido on the Q-Tip & Common one and Kate Rogers just on one of the instrumentals contributing to the sounds. I know theyre not strictly hip-hop but if I made an album thered have to be some of that type of singing on it.

I was thinking a lot about this, and I think it would be some mafioso shit, something like OB4CL but much more cohesive. And I'd at least try to pull out of guests and producers best they can do in that way, as a mafia story.

Title:
- Once upon a time... OR The Biography

Record label
- Def Jam / Aftermath coop (it would give me most possibilities to engage my guests and prods)

So I think I would engage as producers:
- Dr. Dre (I loved his style on The Firm)
- Trackmasters (same)
- Kanye West
- RZA
- prolly Nashiem Myrick and D-Dot as well
- and... guess why I'm practicing producing now?

Guests:
- Nas
- AZ
- Raekwon
- Ghostface Killah
- Kool G. Rap
- Jay-Z (some of his verses Reasonable Doubt Style)

Assuming I was let the unlimited amount of money, off coruse

I'd do a Fight Club themed shit called "Jack's Smirking Revenge". Do a Long Hot Summer style concept with skits and shit chronicling a life in the music industry, from a hopeful bright-eyed kid to a rap star to a dude who gets shitted out the back end and goes on an insane killing spree.

The lead video would be on some Fight Club shit. I, the producer, would play Brad Pitt while the rapper would play Ed Norton. I'd be lip synching his lyrics through half the video, until he comes to the realization that he's a schizo and that we're the same person and kills me by clicking his mic on, then does the rest of the vid himself, yeah!

Plus if i was a rapper, i would keep my music underground and hardcore everytime. Fuck the mainstream and radio. I would never make any radio songs. I'd sign with a independent label like Koch or any independent label that would allow me to do street hardcore music with hard beats. Plus i'd like to do a song with Queen Latifah, Lady Of Rage, MC Lyte, Boss, Rah Digga, Lady Luck, Yo Yo, The Conscious Daughters, Heather B and let them have their shine so i can show my love for the tight female lyrical rappers which is what these ladies are because they don't get that much love from the men so i wanna show them that i love them by having them on one song together.

Lady Sovereign, cause i think she's hot, and seeing her sweat in the booth would make my day. (this is optional)

Ha ha. I always thought Lady soverign looked like a twelve year old little gobshite. Hate her music as well. Sad to see thats pretty much the only export to the US we've managed from the UK so far.

I'm pretty damn happy with my producer right now (you guys'll see soon when we drop something - the guy's NICE).

But it would have to be:

Producers:

Pete Rock
Premo
RZA
Prince Paul

Guest MCs:

GZA
MF Grimm
Mr. Lif
Rakim
Slick Rick

Id keep one producer throughout the whole album if i could, because i think albums that do have a special feel, flow and atmosphere to them that albums with loads of producers dont. Id maybe use the Beatminerz for that early 90s gritty New York sound a la Enta Da Stage of Dah Shinin'. The RZA would obviosuly be a high contender, as would Stoupe, but id make a different sounding album if i used him. Id like to get Premo for some Boom Bap bangas but not sure if id use him for a full album.
Guests id keep to a minimum, as most of my favourite albums have fuck all guests. If i cud id use
Nas
Pharoahe Monch
GZA
Canibus
Mybe leave it at that. Then again those muthafuckers would outshine me like fuck, so maybe use 50, Ja, Yayo etc etc so il sound like the greatest thing to happen to hop-hop.

Stoupe + GZA

That would be a nice combination for an album by themselves!

yeh thats it, a GZA and Stoupe album.

maybe a few years ago i would have said GZA and Muggs, but Muggs work on "Grandmasters" wasnt what i was expecting.

I like the beats on Grandmasters, but I thought a lot of it was realy poorly mixed and mastered. GZAs lyrics on General Principles were class but you can't even hear him properly. The remix was a lot clearer, but I prefer the original beat.
