Never in a million years have I ever thought I'd say that not only have I released a rap single, but also that it got over 6,000 plays overnight. Well, that's the situation I'm currently in - all about the Hype Train, choo chooooo!
Our brief was to create a folksong - something that resonates with the general population, and then get it on Spotify, iTunes, and a music video on YouTube. After calling in a few favours from producer friends, we had a backing track (thanks for that one, AJ from Mutated Forms), and then all we had to do was spit some bars. I say "all we had to do", turns out rapping in time is really difficult for some one like me with no rhythm or musical talent whatsoever.
I think it's safe to say I won't be getting a record deal anytime soon.
The next challenge was to make it go viral - if we get 7,000 hits we win £300 to design our studio. We're so close already, and the deadline isn't till Friday! Next step - radio, we're coming for ya!
