like just about everyone else was saying, just a dream is dope as fuck. your beats are "rap-able"... dont worry about it so much. honestly someone sayin he's "afraid" of rapping on your beats sounds like someone scared to just tell you they dont like your beats. Theres a growing movement of producers making beats with abnormal/loose drums and heavy synths. you kind of got the synth part down, if your drums werent so tight i think you could turn out some beats like that. the scene in LA is probably bigger than anywhere else right now too. check out people like samiyam, flying lotus, dibiase, exile. all based out of LA with a good following.
