Smash - Pop Mix Advice/Critique

Hi,

I am looking for some constructive criticism on this mix.

It is only one verse, Ive been working on it for about a week.

Some specific questions, do you think the 808 underneath the kick is too loud?

Is the rapper's flow interesting?
Should the synth be more sparse or is it alright this way?
Is a high frequency instrument desirable?

I've heard this so many times that I need to get someone else's perspective on it.


Thank you!

Keeping in mind that I'm listening on smaller computer speakers...

1. The upper mids are extra-crispy listening on these speakers, overly so. They might not be on other systems, I dunno.
2. The kick doesn't sound overly loud on these types of speakers, but the bulk of it is probably below what these can reproduce. It could be horrendously bloated on larger speakers and I'd never know.
