    I used to write this sort of stuff and sell it on beat trading websites. Can earn you a bit of cash on the side...if you're not bothered about it artistically, might be an idea!

    Liking it. Got a fantastic soul vibe to it, the pianos are great too, very slick, but I do feel the drums could use a little humanizing, they're quite dry and constant. Just my 2 cents.

    Also, if you want a more "real" sound, I could always re-record the bassline for you on my bass...run it through guitar rig, and the etheral sound you'll get from it will be awesome.

    Good work, I don't usually go for hiphop either but this is nice and chilled. Hopefully you get a decent MC and not MC Beefy or something :)

    Think away the drums and the vocals, and this would be the typical porn movie music ;D.
    I'm not into hip hop, so i'm not gonna comment, i'm just trolling ;p
    Well produced though

    pretty cool man. My only criticism is you have a brassy stab pretty hard panned. It sticks out of the mix a bit too much. :D
