I have been writing song lyrics for over 10 years, predominately in the genre of Hip-Hop/Rap music. However, I do enjoy writing song lyrics for R&B/Soul and Pop music as well. When writing my own Hip-Hop/Rap lyrics, I use a style reminiscent of 90s Hip-Hop/Rap music but I can write for just about any style of Hip-Hop/Rap that you require.
I specialize in thought provoking lyrics. Whether it's captivating emotion, story telling, lyrical acrobatics, or a punch line flow, I'll be sure to bring your thoughts to life in the form of written lyrics. Of course, it defeats the purpose to just provide you with the lyrics with no clue on the delivery and flow, so I will also send you a recording of how the lyrics should be presented.
When it comes to producing, my style of production favors a 90s early 2000s Hip-Hop/Rap or R&B/Soul style but I can make what ever kind of instrumental you need for your project. It helps if you send me a sample along with letting me know the feel you are going for but I can also come up with my own ideas if you don't have any real direction.

Another amazing job man well done. I love the hard work that went into this! Thanks for putting up with all my suggestions.
Took the time to listen to the backstory of what I wanted in the song. Amazing work ethic. I'd definitely recommend him of you're searching for an artist.
Double is a true lyricist. I really enjoyed working with him and look forward to working with him again soon.
He is very professional and a beast at what he does.
I hired Double A to edit a song that I was working on, and the result that I got pack was phenomenal. Double A is an extremely gifted lyricist. He was able to take my concept and bring it to life in a way that I simply couldn't. What I have been most impressed with, however, is his ability to adapt. From the fact that he was working with no instrumental to the way he was able to take the notes I gave him and re-write hitting the nail on the head...this has been a GREAT experience. THANK YOU!!
Like i said before i would return haha! Again i am very satisfied with his work. He really knows how to capture the emotions of my content into lyrics, thanks again!
Another great experience, dope artist; he really captured the vibe and flow i was going for and not too mention his lyricism is on point too! will be coming back soon
Hes got an such an intuitive approach to songwriting!!! it came out better than i could ever imagine. thank you so much you exceeded my expectations!
Interview with Double A
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop, microphone, interface, speaker, and my headphones.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Kendrick Lamar because he is such a gifted lyricist. I feel like on the production side I could really bring value to him.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Never be afraid to try something new. Even if whatever you try doesn't sound the best for what you are currently working on it may be a valuable tool for your next project. This way you are always continuing to grow musically.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is pretty basic but it gets the job done. I have my laptop setup on my desk with a quality microphone for recording.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Producers such as Kanye West, 9th Wonder, Hit-Boy, RZA, and DJ Premier all inspire me when it comes to making beats. They are some of the top producers I have studied when it comes to my own style of production.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Other than myself, I don't know anyone else personally who works on Soundbetter.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise to my clients is that I will always complete projects within a timely fashion. If something occurs to where there will be a delay then I promise to communicate that ahead of time.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: So far the most common type of work I do with clients is ghostwriting. The client will typically give me an instrumental with a general direction of how they would like the song to go. I like to give the client an opportunity to tell me in detail everything they want out of the song; whether it be what kind of emotion is being portrayed or what kind of rhyme style is being used. I'm happy to let my imagination run wild and take direction of the song, but I think it's better to get as much information from the client as possible before the writing process begins just to make sure that we are both on the same page.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask clients to tell me a little bit about themselves (when they were born, where they are from, personality traits, how their environment helped shaped their mindset, top influences in their life, etc.) as well as what direction they are looking for in the songs they want written. The lyrics may come from me but it's the clients story that I'm telling. Because of this, I want to make sure that I tell it as accurately and thoroughly as possible.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Reminiscent of 90s Hip-Hop/Rap. I like a variety of different Hip-Hop/Rap music but this would be the style that I tend to fall back on when writing music for myself.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Hip-Hop/Rap music but I also enjoy writing R&B/Soul songs as well (even though I can't sing myself).
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say that my attention to detail in my word choice is my strongest skill. Being descriptive to the point where it almost seems as though the listener is watching a movie as opposed to listening to a song has always been something that I pride myself on.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring extensive lyricism as well as strong emotion to a song. I want someone listening to truly understand where I'm coming from when I'm writing lyrics and being able to make the audience feel that emotion is very important.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually listen to an instrumental on repeat for a few hours and really let the beat sink in. Once I've completely zoned into the beat, I start drafting out ideas for what the topic should be. Once I've picked the topic, I write down some notes about the topic and then proceed to put them into a lyrical format. Depending on the instrumental, I may find myself writing the chorus first as a summary and then write the verses as a more descriptive version of the chorus.
