Michael Serbus on SoundBetter

I was raised the son of a published poet. Poetry led me to hip-hop, and those two passions combined led me to studying English and Phonetics (the sounds of words) in college. Now, I have a higher standard for lyricism than the next guy.

I write and record hip-hop personally. Although, I've come to terms with the honest fact that my voice could be more listenable, my lyricism has always stood out above the rest-- so ghostwriting is really ideal for someone like me. In my opinion, there's always a perfect lyric-- you just have find it.

There's never any reason to settle. I pay attention to detail, but also understand music should feel organic, and I believe that balance can always be achieved in that.

My specialty lies in the area of lyricism involving concept songs (I.e. Alphabet Aerobics - Blackalicious ) and figurative language like extended metaphors (I.e. Swimming Pools - Kendrick Lamar).

Some of by biggest inspirations include Kendrick Lamar, Joyner Lucas, J. Cole, Eminem, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean, MF DOOM, and more. Most of my experience is in Hip-hop, but I have experience writing for Trap, Pop, and Rock artists as well.
