Whenever I write a ryhme It never comes out in a nice flow when I read it but it goes with the bar. Is it the way I'm reading it or is it my writing? I tryed looking at Tech N9ne's stuff but I can't find his bars. Do you have to make a ryhme after every bar?
Could someone show me what some clean bars look what.
Ps I know it's a weird ass question but I don't know any other way to word it.
I see these are all helpful tips. Now when I practice I'll know the right from in witch I should try and perfect. Is there any other stuff I should learn before I start practicing in this way?
PS: I appreciate the help.
What do you mean by count my syllables. Like say a certain amount of words per bar? I think I see what you mean by the 1 ,2, 3, 2 thing. Does that mean like say the bar differently on a different number?
it depends on the beat as well.
you should always right to a beat if you want to record.
it will be a lot harder if you just simply write something then try to fit it to a beat.
you will most likely never write a good rap the first go.
if you write something in 15-20 min you should take about double or triple that time going back and sharpening up your lines. taking out words where they dont need to be to make the bars shorter. or even adding words to make the bars longer if need be.
counting bars actually has nothing to do with the pen & pad. its the measure in the beat you are counting.
but the best way to explain it so it doesnt get confusing is 16 lines is 16 bars.
post some shit you wrote...i think people would be able to help you more if we could see exactly what you are doing.
I seriously hate when people act like the way they do something is the "only" or "best" way to do something. This is how you can tell people are amatuers and not professionals. I've recorded with enough mcs to know that there is no "one" way to rap that can work and be successful. I would try out a few different methods and see what works best for you. But the honest truth is, that if after several attempts you still don't think you sound good you may never sound good. I can not stress enough the importance of working with other people (in real life, not on the internet) while learning because that will be the best way to learn and get the feedback you need to progress (or, worse case scenario, quit).
Is this any good?
One, wake up at noon and press snooze
two, shake my head, get out of bed
three, Get on my clothes, ready to go
four, walk to school, with dry druel
This is how my day begins
Get to school to start failin
From History, english, and science
To me all these classes seem pointless
So instead I invest my time
In the rap game to improve my grind
Harder then I thought, why not
practice till I tear a manicus
Put in all I got, why not
Until im pointy like a cactus
Got lots to gain, plenty to lose
Plott to get fame, or get the noose
Perfecting my ryhme everyday
to earn my lifes a heavenly stay
on this earth, prodigy sence birth
Friends call me crazy (X2)
My ways they debate me
Caring is why I fail
Sleep is why I pale
:45 lol first thing that came to mind
a tie a said:
best way to do it is to get into the beat, and hum or speak gibberish or whatever in whatever flow you feel fits with it. then start writing lyrics in the flow or delivery or w/e that you want it to be. That's all I can really say about it right now. if i think of anything more constructive i'll be back
