Not bad. Keep at it. It's getting better. I didn't like the Hazy Eyes video but the newer stuff is better IMO. This is good chillout music.

Same as the last one it seems like. Think you got some talent but you need to make a faster beat/flow and quit using the same female vocalist in every song, imo

Re: Prahlad Friedman aka Pragress and Aida drop #HazyEyezEP

So you think it's cool to resurface now because the government is paying people for their long lost UB money?

You're still a limousine liberal hypocrite, bro.

You knew exactly what UB was and who was running it when you agreed to be the face of the so-called New UB, when in reality you were leading the lambs to the slaughter.

You knew it was the same scumbag ownership which cheated you and everyone else for years, and helped peddle their lies.

All those years you talked about your hippie values and hatred of corporations, and when it came down to it, you were as greedy as the worst people on Wall Street.

BTW, you are a white bread 40-year-old. Stop acting and talking like a teenager who heard his first rap album and is trying to imitate black culture to sound cool.

Try being genuine for once in your life.

I actually didn't know that UB was still dirty. I really thought it was new owners and management and all that. Obviously it was a huge mistake and I regret it a lot. People that warned me were right and I'm sorry to everyone that was affected by how brutal UB was.
As for me not being genuine in the music, that's wrong. My high school was over 50% black. I played hoops my whole life and always had tons of black friends. So when you hear swag in my voice or slang I use, its all genuine, thats how I actually talk. Maybe you think white people have to talk all nerdy, haha.

Props for answering the questions and not dodging. Not exactly my genre, but sounds pretty tight. She has a nice voice. I guess you could say it was aight.

Best of luck

Re: Prahlad Friedman aka Pragress and Aida drop #HazyEyezEP

Your production value is ok, a new drum pack probably wouldn't go astray. You have good cadence but your rhyme schemes are relatively weak, which isn't super important with this genre, style over substance etc. It would be nice to hear some multi-syllables as well.

Definite Pragress made but I still think you better practice avoidance.

Actually, it feels decent for a poker player turned rapper but not quite ready for prime time. My main criticism is that the tracks have a very similar sound/lack diversity. Your gf has a pretty voice and I think you guys could probably make something happen but it is still pretty far off. Best of luck though. Seems like a fun project.

Beat for Rider is actually pretty sick. Honestly Aida's choruses ruin every song imo...

They're too robotic.. no soul, no emotion

This is how you should respond to something when you f*** up. These fools on PNIA going on & on. Along with other players that have some kind of name in poker should take notes.

Re: Prahlad Friedman reemerges as Pragress in new rap video

He has always looked happy, something to aspire to, more than riches or being the best at something (imo). The production value, as the pros in that field have noted, seems to be as high quality as that Gorillla Glue he's firing up. It's an artistic endeavor that seems to bring him closer to his gf - we can all speculate why. But he's doing something that he enjoys doing and is happy. That might be all it's about.

From a business perspective, if pra takes even more of a back seat w verses and sticks to backing up the chorus and being her cheerleader on the mic, and Aida becomes the actual artist (solo artists always do better than weak 2 person collabs), then maybe he can use his poker skills and versatile talents to get them/her a shot at a way to print. He's not on the same level as Aida or the people he can pay to collab w her. Of course the chance of being a breakout star is about the same chance as becoming a HS poker pro; many try and few succeed. But I like Aida as an artist and would listen to more of her, either in a pop ballad w some energy, or in like some party theme drum and bass thing w a good melody and bring someone in to do a hard verse or two. The one w Casey Veggies is pretty good. wish all musicians good luck, tough honest way to make a buck

Good post but I disagree with the overall messages. Prahlad should keep at it 100% if that's what he wants to do imo, and I kind of prefer him to his gf tbh, though I agree that she has a greater chance of commercial success.

This is better than a lot of the crap getting millions of views on youtube. Your rapping sounded good here. I liked this better than the first video you put out.
