“Untitled” Barz and Boardz by Adam Ledbetter
Welcome to Barz and Boardz
“Barz & Boardz is a video series that features me rapping while accompanying myself on various keybaords. The origin of this concept began while still in middle school in Oklahoma City. I attended a performing arts as a piano major and developed an unusual assortment of obsessions. Frederic Chopin, Busta Rhymes, Richard Smallwood & Oscar Peterson were my four corners. I spent all my lunch hours transcribing my favorite rap verses and banging out solo piano reductions of the beats. Now all of the raps and grooves are original. The goal of this series is to take the art of rap into unprecedented territory by way of odd meters, uncommon stylistic juxtapositions and sheer virtuosity. Barz.” -Adam Ledbetter (of Adam and Kizzie)
No. 3 “Untitled”
This is another unreleased verse from the solo rap project. This song deals with the frustrations of struggling financially while pursuing one’s dreams. The weird balance between inadequacy and determination.
