Guest posted a topic in Music DiscussionBeen a long time since I've posted here, but I'm happy to be back. At the moment, I'm looking for a bit of help: A few weeks ago I heard what seemed, at first, to be an Internet rumor/ghost story about a kid in Detroit who documented his suicide on Instagram. Sadly enough, it turned out to be true, and I was surprised to find out that he was a young music producer. He had a Twitter account (https://twitter.com/djkillbill313), an Instagram account (http://www.pikore.com/djkillbill313), and at least one Soundcloud page (https://soundcloud.com/djkillbillprod), possibly two (https://soundcloud.com/djkillbill313). His name was Billy Watts, and he changed the header/description on his Instagram profile prior to his suicide to read "If you are wondering or even disappointed.... Just click the link below. Enjoy your life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D86ArQDvWSY" The YouTube link brings you to the final album he created, which is an instrumental hip-hop piece entitled ".Nothing." I've listened to the beginning, and I like it a lot. I also mostly tend to listen to music when I'm taking walks outside, and so I'd really like to get a high quality copy of the album that I can stick into iTunes and transfer to my mp3 player. My hope was that he left a link for a download somewhere as well, but I haven't been able to find any. Basically, I'm hoping someone out there might be familiar with this young man and his work (his real name is Billy Watts), and have access to a high quality copy of the .Nothing. album - or maybe there's at least someone out there a bit more versed with hunting down .rar downloads, and can ensure that a .rar/zip of the album isn't actually a virus that some piece of crap stuck in there to try and take advantage of those familiar with the story. Barring those options, I'd also be interested in learning a way to copy the album directly from YouTube, in as high quality as possible. I've heard of and used some programs to copy a track or two in the past, but it's been awhile, and I'm hoping someone is familiar with an effective version. Anyway, that's the gist of the situation - any help is greatly appreciated. I'm also always into discussing and learning about new instrumental/instrumental hip-hop/electronic-type albums as well, so if this branches into a discussion involving similar types of music, I'd be happy as well (from what I've heard, the album reminds me a bit of some of DJ Signify's work - but still, I'm really interested in listening to the rest, closely).
