 Wow!, I bet you do some serious sports or exercise to have this much of air ready to float your lyrics on. Or your texts. How do rappers call ‘em?
I listened to your song and I like it very much.

It does make me curious about some things though, and I hope you don’t mind if I wanna get your ideas about those. So here goes, randomly:
Your voice is very sure about what you rap. How come this is your first song, or did I misunderstand?
I put my head in the speaker box to keep up with your rap. You’ve got a fabulous diction but please be aware that there are many non native English speakers around. I’m one of them, so if you could include the lyrics? Thanks very much!
May I ask what’s it you’re studying? And what is the normal thing to do, school, high school (then something) and then university? Or is 19 and university perfectly as it always goes?

As far as I know, Curtis Mayfield was the first to coin ‘rap’ as indication that he would be talking instead of singing on his record. And at a certain point he was rapping, then singing, then rapping etc.
Do you have heroes from the singing or from the rapping part of ‘our world’?

And of course welcome to the kitchen!!!
Kind regards, Gus

I had written the song and practiced it for months before finally recording it so I knew what I wanted the sound to be.
I added the lyrics to the description of the song, unfortunately users can’t access the description from the mobile app.
I’m studying computer science in University. 18 and 19 is the age that people in the U.S. normally go to college/university so I am on track 😊
I listen to a wide range of music so I would say some people I look up to a lot are David Bowie, Kamau, and Earl Sweatshirt. I feel like the only way to make music is to listen in all the forms it comes in.
Thank you for the warm welcome and support on the song! I hope I answered all your questions!

Here you go @LePlongeur - grabbed from SoundCloud. (see below)

Welcome to the Kitchen @Tahjei - there is certainly plenty of musical variety on here including some rappers. 

Lyrics

Stay calm like an ocean people getting high but they really ain't floating
collect tokens no smoking funny bone broke so you know I'm not joking
Never missing out so I know no F.O.M.O. below two bro so cold got 'em saying achoo you know who - eat these beets like a Ukraine dude okay(ooh yah aye)
Calm like an ocean
passion pushed me past the path I fashioned from the freaky fascists
cold cocked so socked you can call me cassius
y'all sleeping on me but I don't see a mattress
bout to teach these boys you gone need a masters
all that noise pitter-patter cooking up that bitter batter
make your weapon clatter
I'm the villain of your story where the hero doesn't matter
I'm the realest in this void and there is no one better
I'm Achilles in Troy and I'm dragging out Hector
I will really destroy your story for the better
Toll man taking tokens buddy boy leave your bones broken
and I'm still calm like an ocean and I'm still on so get to floating
(calm like an ocean calm like an ocean)
Check a math class if you ever got a problem
got a couple boys that's my vatos
people acting like what they not though
then they get swerved like a pothole get rocked hoe
These hoes act like crows but they not poe
I got gold to make sure that my neck froze
I make flows like a river I don't know no woes
this the life that I chose now I'm gunning down my foes
listen better get to swimming if you wanna win
against the realest in the street
Krillin at the end of Z straight chilling in this industry
you gonna wanna be a friend of me
Stay calm like an ocean and I stay fly either way I'm still floating
(calm like an ocean calm like an ocean)
"Love and Life is all about connections"
