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.

Interview with Double A
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.
