I'm absolutely not an expert of the genre, so take with a pinch of salt.

I like the track. The vocals are convincing and - even if I don't understand a word - they sound like I would if I knew the language, and the performance overall is good, with the vocals flying into each other well. The only remark I could do is that the tempo can feel a little on the slow side: it works, but if it were a few BPMs faster it could be perhaps more exciting, given that all the song is pinned mainly on the vocals and the bass line - and, given the genre, the lyrics (I assume).

It made me think of this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y91XOFQsNa0 - which is good as Guru's first Jazzmatazz is one of my fave albums ever.

The super tubby bass synth beat is a bit odd to me , and it's bloody loud - it felt really strange at first. However, it sits somewhere else entirely than the vocals so it works, and it certainly imparts a huge sonic signature to the song. But as said I have no idea of the genre conventions so what do I know :)

I like the ear candy that's there (the splashes etc) but it could worth a try adding something more along the way, as after 2:30ish it may feel a little repetitive if you don't understand the lyrics.

So no idea if it's "professional" or not but it feels real and a bit raw, like a good rap should be.

Nice Track. I agree with CS70's positive comments about it. The quality of the lead vocal sounds really good. The balance of various elements also seems good, however, it seems like most secondary vocal parts are panned toward center - as a result, the mix seems like it might be lacking in some of the excitement that you can get if you use/explore the stereo field a bit more to create contrast between sections of the track. You could also experiment with a few surprise mix changes here and there. Anyway, nice work, and good luck with the final stages!
