Unless your name starts with Bey and ends in oncé, the role of rap song muse is usually one to avoid.
Put the negative notion on ice and commission a custom flow by Megan Baldwin.
By day, she’s creative director at Chromatic Gallerie. Come night, she spins at clubs and bars around NYC. To prep, Baldwin spends hours mixing beats; after so many repeats, alternative lyrics sprouted naturally. Her humorously tweaked versions of tracks became gifts for her clique — and now you.
Email Baldwin with your request (b-day, get well, general ode) and a compelling reason to take your case. If she’s game, she replies with a list of questions. Your answers become the base for her flow, so details equal gold (or perhaps platinum). One rule: Haters are not welcome.
Rhymes range from $70 to $90 and take one to two weeks to complete (three and 60 additional bones if you want her freelance rapper to lay down the track).
