    Now I know since this is a rap forum I may not get much of the same feeling, but Im gonna put it out there:

    The past 4 months have been a real rollercoaster for me spiritually, and one of the things that has happened recently is I've gotten back into the church. I strayed for years once I had gotten into college but I went back about a month ago by recommendation of my father and now as a grown man who has been through some things, the words of the preacher really strike me now (along with the music).

    this has really led me to start thinking about just what kind of artists I'll work with nowadays and the type of messages in their songs I would be co-signing as the Producer. I remember being in a studio session a few years ago and the producer of the track completely ending the session when he started hearing some of the lyrics the rapper was spitting about women and he told him how he gets down and he can either accept it or not, the rapper wouldnt accept so he rolled out...

    So my fellow producers, are there certain types of songs/lyrics you just wont allow an artist to make with your beats or does it not matter as long as you got paid?

    Dont get it twisted, I'm by no means a perfect person so theres no "holier than thou" attitude to be taken from this, I just wanted to get some nice discussions around here...

    i wouldnt say that that would be an easy task, talking about real shit like that. people just dont have the patience anymore. if you listen to radio, and the mainstream people, they arent too inclined or pursuaded by lyrics anymore, moreso focussed on dancing n having a good time. although there are people who do enjoy the realer shit now, you're not guarranteed to be on the radio because of what the industry chooses to put out. they obviously arent choosing lyrics, because theres alot of talented lyricists out there. notice how djs rarely put their needle on common's tracks. he has some very good music, and some potential singles. but the industry just isnt accepting it at the moment for some reason. perhaps that time will pass, but until then, you wont have much of a shot at getting signed unless your making wack ay bay bay ringtone singles which is usually guaranteed to make their money back.

    I've always thought about this. Thing is, most unsigned and unestablished rappers are too egotistical to ever take direction from somebody tellin them not to curse or anything unless it's a major producer. When I was makin my compilation album, I was thinkin about makin it all clean just so that adults and anybody else could listen to it.

    Now if I rapped and produced, and had somebody on a song that was MY song, meaning "R-Tistic ft." then I wouldn't be cool with them dissin somebody else, whether I knew them or not, just because people get things mixed up a lot.

    If I get back into producing though, I will try to make some songs completely clean just because some songs don't sound the same when you edit the words. And in my opinion, all of the great rappers could make a song with NO cursing at all, and you don't even realize it's clean until you try to find a curse word in it.
