Chopped & Screwed Hip-Hop/Rap Music

I recently released my first Chopped and Screwed track. Are there popular platforms I should submit such tracks to in the future?

I just followed to the soundcloud player in your homepage, so I could compare original & 'chopped & screwed'. Transposing the song pitch is giving the voice an odd sound, I didn't get all happy with it when I tried the trick myself, 'like ET playing the kazoo' I found my voice was sounding - a real low voice would probably have very different formants.

What I did like, though, was the effect of hearing rap at that tempo, together with the low voice, that is making a totally different statement. Getting there the way you did, also makes the song too long for pop, but the approach of pacing down rap / hip hop sounds really good; that's asking for more investigation, songs designed that way from the start, i.e. a shorter story, more slowly told, with a natural low voice, or a pitch shifter capable of enough formant magic to make the result convincing if not natural.

Keep them coming :)

Thanks for listening to both and your feedback. I like the ability to make an instrument out of a full song and flip the vibe between major and minor.

An issue with my example is the original is already to long. I think the average Chopped & Screwed versions come in at ~5-6 minutes.

I'll share my next Chopped & Screwed tracks here as well.
