Hip-Hop artist Mr. Hooper’s lyrics are an entertaining mix of self-introspection, and a reflection of American society past and present.

All In A Day’s Work

I asked you what you wanted to hear me rap about, and you responded. From all of the topics submitted, I chose five suggestions to base songs on. Each song was written, produced, and recorded in a 9 to 5 workday, hence the title “All In A Day’s Work”.

The songs have undergone some mixing and re-mixing, and are now ready to be added to your playlist.

Track Listing


 

1. Zoro –  Inspired by the suggestion of Mr. Hooper fan Ebony London (“Paint Strokes”). I wrote, produced, and recorded the song on March 9, 2015.

Production Notes: Recorded and Mixed in Bob’s Room (Sacramento, CA)

2. No Permission – Inspired by the suggestions of Mr. Hooper fans Donna Hanes Martinez (“I say..living life against the trend”), Asia Allen (“LGBT”), and Erika Le (“Living life by your own terms after spending most of it living by everyone else’s expectations, even if you almost go broke doing so…. just thinking about people who go through divorce, decide not to go to college, etc…”). I wrote, produced, and recorded the song on August 25th, 2014.
