Please give me feedback on a rap track before I send it out for mastering.
 
I recorded the artists and mixed this track for an album I'm producing (all in Reason 6.5) I've made other beats for the album but this track was done by one of our beat makers/lyricist. I know he used an older version of PT for the beat so he had to send me the stems to work with. I was looking for any feedback on the mix (even the song as a whole also) because after I feel that the mix is complete I'm going to send the track out to be mastered professionally. It's very important to have a good mix because there's only so much that mastering can do that need to be addressed in the mix.
I haven't created my own soundcloud page yet so I just uploaded it to zippyshare.com .
There's a media player (that plays the song as a mp3) on the link but I included a wav file download because I didn't mix the track with converting it to mp3 in mind. So please download the track an check out the mix. All I ask is that you don't post it anywhere because the mix isn't finished or even mastered yet. We are going to be giving the album away for free when it's done (we will accept donations if people want to help us out) so I'll be posting that info after we're done with the album.

Here's the link...... http://www59.zippyshare.com/v/37342845/file.html
I hope you enjoy the track!

I know most people post their music that way but I haven't gone around to creating one yet. Does anyone know if the soundscloud player plays the file as an mp3 even if you up load a wav? I wanted to ask you also did you check out the track? Did the link not work for you? What does it matter if I didn't use sound cloud if you can still check out the track with the link I posted?

I see there has been 18 views but only one person has posted a reply and the reply wasn't even about the track. Will someone please give me some feed back about this mix? Is the link not working or something?

Now I see 33 views but still no one had posted anything feedback. Anyone.... Please....

If you set it so everybody can download the song, it will offer a download which is the same as you put in. So, if you upload a 24bit wav, SC's download is that same file.

It does have a streaming player on the link. Did you read my original post? You don't have to download, again there's a streaming player on the link I posted.

I'll set up a SC page soon then I'll re post another thread. I know it's easy to set one I just done have a tight pic or logo for one just yet. That's why I think I haven't bothered just yet.

Listening right now and the first thing coming to mind is that the vocals are a bit buried. Maybe a little louder so the stand out a bit more. Also i hear it´s mostly low and hi dominating. Maybe you should try to bring the mid out a bit more too. The hihats seem a little washed out to me but that can be my personal pref. I digg the track tho. Really nice production man
