    If he/she? has got a good hook then go for it! if not you just tell them to shhhh do a few bits then chop it up later

    its difficult to tell an mc to shut up

    i feel for you

    he might shank you

    yea toejam i know what u mean, hes a cockney from brixton, never known anyone to talk so much, i played 3 of my tracks to my college class with him doin some lines over the top, he went almost the full 15 minutes without any breaks and i felt it overshadowed the back beat cus everyone said he went on for too long and it was irritating so i dont think people were concentrating on the beat so much because of it

    Try and make a really big jump up tune that is good for MC'ing and save any better more musical stuff for yourself.

    I personally would just let the beats roll, a "decent" mc live would make it sound alot better,

    i got john barnes number if you want it
