1993 - 1996: Rapping for fun because it seemed like a cool thing to get into. Laughable freestyles and embarrassing things happened during this era.
1997 - 2000: Getting a bit more serious. Still not good. Traded homemade cassettes/CD-R with friends. Usually featuring cheesy beats I’d made on cheap keyboards and recorded on karaoke machines & early computer-based recording rigs. Style was largely structured around imitating things I was listening to + artist/friends I admired. Growing artistically. Endearing, awkward, & cringe inducing.
