Narcotized, addled, and sometimes tender, Future has spent the past decade making whatever music he wants: trap ballads, twerk anthems, petty kiss-offs, trippy blues. His superpower is his ability to smear emotional states into odd collages, his protean voice ascending to the peaks of exuberance or plunging to the depths of misery. In a single moment, a Future song can pivot into the sublime, altering what came before it and e...

Juice WRLD is arguably one of hip-hop’s modern day pioneers. With a career that has been nothing short of meteoric, he currently stands as one of the most listened to rappers in the game and finds himself nominated for “Best New Artist” at the 2019 BET Awards.

I have personally been producing beats for YEARS now and sometimes it takes a different approach and lifestyle changes to make major changes happen. For so many years I had the mentally that I could just get fl studio and learn as i go and do just enough to get by with my instrumentals and everything would just fall in place...i was soo wrong (LOL).

I ran across an overlooked technique that would definatly help a rapper on any beat. This secret weapon is called "timbre" which is defined as the combination of qualities of a sound that distinguishes it from other sounds of the same pitch and volume. This is also what distinguishes the difference of any two instrument you listen to like the difference from a piano versus a guitar. Continue reading below:
