Coming Up with an Alias
Posted 07 January 2014 - 10:37 AM
So I'm just curious about how some of you came/come up with your aliases. Whether its a rap/producing moniker or even just your Internetz handles.
I've been using the same name when it comes to making beats for a little over a decade but I recently decided to switch it up to something new. Figured since I'm closing the door on one part of my life its a great opportunity to start with a fresh slate. Took me a few weeks but I finally came up with something I'm satisfied with.
What's your process?

i added the "-enstein" part only later on, and kept the period there to now signify an abbreviation, like Dr. is for doctor or Mr. is for mister...idk, just some stupid thing i came up with haha.
most people get it wrong though and don't realize that the period actually has a function. my actual stage name is 'James Frankenstein'...

Love that shit.
If you want to debate it tho, please just scan thru the thread dedicated to it somewhere.
Anyhow, hot shit if you ask me. Visuals are questionable but so is Freddie's life style. Meaning, gun running, toting ect basically is not something I have ever been exposed to or care to be in my life. But, for anyone who has grown up with Scarface, or any mob flick, I can not see why this vid ain't cool. Does it cross the Backpackers Guide To Hip Hop, Rule : 113? Tho shalt not be violent?

Edit: (Quoted in last post because I agree with you ^ lol)
Related to OP: GC90 was my Halo abbreviation thingy (forgot what they called it, not Gamertag though). My gaming handle was guncrazy90 since middle school Halo 2 days, over the years "Gun" has become basically my second name (basically to the point that if someone refers to me as Gun, I will look in their direction lol).
Edit: #2 - waxramble has become my online handle when it comes to music, basically just my site name that describes what it was originally intended for (rambling about records). Took me forever to come up with though, had to do a billion domain searches and this was finally one I could buy at a reasonable price lol

When I first got a soundcloud I needed a name, said "fuck it", and stuck with it.
Can't imagine changing it, but it gets really fucking annoying when all these white kids say, "ras dude... you mean like Ras G?"
