Yo blud, chillin in the hood wots going down mah homies.
A follow up to old man boogie even tho it was written many years before!
Sonny, SRP, said some songs take days well this has taken 13 years!! Apologies for my mind then as it was written on prescription meds and alcohol!! Good days at the time but bad looking back.

It started as all loops from EJAY and last week I recorded the vocals and then ran BIAB for too many bars and in the key of the samples. I input a wav of the complete song into the audio track to find the drums. Then replaced audio with wav of the vocals, guitar and panning loops to add the rest of the tracks.
The story of the girl was based on a "lady" who had a HELL of a reputation in town at the time. She sometimes joins us for coffee and has "retired from her old ways" as she is now in her 70's, Even laughs at her own exploits but wants to know her nickname WOAH NO crazy no way grin

Get on down to Old man Rapper

well I ain't got time to dispel the truth
cos I got something I can say to you
like hey man whats your game,
said just cool down cos I ain't insane
I'm an old man rapper and I'm doing well
but I ain't got you no story to tell about
love and hate and all that crap
cos I am here and I was born to rap

I can talk all night I can make it rhyme
just give me a subject I can make the time
I said hey you girl you got those looks
you got that face from a do it yourself book

got nice white teeth and that's all right
the only trouble is they come out a night
put socks in side your bra
and make your face from a polyfilla jar
call you appendix and that's no doubt
cos anytime of day someone takes you out
tap you on the head and your tights fall down
something goes up when you go down

enuff of me heres a little bout me
I can learn my lovin' from my dog you see
the only thing is I can raise a larf
cos before I make love
I have to kiss your [*****]

well I ain't got time to dispel the truth
cos I got something to say to you
like hey man what's your game,
said just cool down cos I ain't insane
an old man rapper and I'm doing well
but I ain't got you no story to tell about
love and hate and all that crap
cos I am here and I was born to rap


I am here, I was born to rap.

What ! ?

Alyn, you never cease to amaze me.

I loved that track from the first beat.

It's got everything, including humour which you don't see in many rap tracks.

It's very typical of the rap style, but at the same time still very much in the Alyn style which we've come to know and love.

A classic my old Welsh pal.

ROG.

Wow Alyn! I have to admit I was not a Rap fan but you just won me over with this song. Loved it! Everything that you did...the instruments, lyrics, the loop and vocals was right on target! Great job! I really enjoyed it!

Alyn!

Spectacular!

That is really well put together. All the parts work. You rap well...

A bit of Shaft opening up... nice. Mix in a bit of early disco... Better than standard rap. Chair dancing happening in Florida...

Awesome enjoyment!

Terrific work!

Great fun. (Wot next?). Cheers.

Pretty sensational is an understatement. I'm no big rap fan, but you have taken the abilities of BiaB to another dimension. Fantastic arrangement. Great lyrics BTW!

I am glad my sense of humour shows through as this was meant to be a "comedy" type song but when I added the BIAB bits it flew off in another direction!

Thanks for those kind words from a beautiful part of England

all the best

Alyn

Thanks Herb,

I am so glad you liked my attempt at rap, considering our styles are miles apart.

Thanks so much for listening and commenting

Guenter

Thanks, I always feel my songs need a background to them, if there is one as it may explain the weirdness of them all blush .

Appendix didn't turm up for coffee today but I will tell her next time I see her that she has a fan in Germany. That'll confuse her grin laugh

So glad you enjoyed

Alyn

Cheers Sonny,
Gangsta Paradise with Coolio really caught my ear all those years ago and I have always wanted to do a song like that. New rap can leave me cold.

I was amazed when BIAB moved in as the song really took off, in my mind, then.
I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
