I started to learn how to rap just watching the older dudes do it in the park. I had to be about 9, 10 years old when I first started hearing hip-hop music being played out in the parks, out in the neighborhoods.
I saw the DJ on the two turntables scratching, and I saw dudes on the microphone just really keeping the party amped and charged up—just being masters of ceremony, where the word MC comes from, just keeping the party alive.
When I first heard some of them spitting back then, as a kid, I was just fascinated by it. I started repeating what I would hear the older guys saying, and that was my first brush with just beginning to learn how to rap.
These dudes, they moved you—they moved you from the soul. Their rapping capability and ability—these dudes were phenomenal. These were the dudes that influenced G Rap to rap the way he raps or to even just have the motivation to want to stand out from everybody else and not only be different but be the best at what I do—it was inspired by those rappers. So I think you definitely have to study some of the people that are considered to be legends, and great lyricists, and great rappers—study and do your homework and brush up on your history.
You gotta know what it is to be a great MC in order to do it—you gotta hear it, you gotta feel it. Kool G Rap is a legendary MC whose complex rhyme style and vivid street imagery have influenced a whole generation of MCs. You always have something to learn from someone. How to Rap teaches you the art and science of MCing through the words and lyrics of some of the most influential and respected MCs of all time, from all areas of hip-hop.
Over a hundred MCs were interviewed exclusively for this book, including pioneers and contemporary MCs, mainstream and underground rappers there is a complete list of all the interviewed artists on p. As many different types of artists as possible were included, to draw on their individual strengths—explaining everything from writing deep political lyrics to crafting chart-topping choruses.
All the techniques, methods, and suggestions come directly from the artists themselves, so that you can learn in the same way that all rappers have learned—from other rappers.
Kool G Rap from the Juice Crew kind of set the standards for me as far as what was considered a dope verse and dope rhyming, so I basically just mimicked him. The words of the interviewed artists will guide you step by step through the art form, breaking down the different elements of the craft. By exploring the key components individually, you can focus on and master each one. If you want to be someone great and someone who will be remembered, you have to master that field, and that means mastering every aspect and every style that there is.
You take 2Pac—he mastered every element, every aspect—[and] Biggie under the same circumstances, of mastering all the hemispheres of the music. How to Rap also provides valuable insight into the history of MCing, exposing you to many of the pivotal figures in hip-hop, their music, and their influences, and to the notable styles within the genre.
And knowing this history helps you become a great MC by building on the decades of work and innovation of other MCs. Study, know all of the facts. You gotta know Geto Boys, you gotta know why T. How to Rap covers a wide range of the techniques used by many artists.
Although different MCs have different opinions and different ways of doing things, every viewpoint and technique has been included to give a complete picture. There is no single correct way to do anything—the right way is whatever works best for you and your music.
As you pick and choose from among the huge range of techniques and methods found in this book, you will develop your own style. The terms MC sometimes spelled emcee , rapper, lyricist, and artist appear many times in How to Rap.
Sometimes distinctions are made among these terms—for example, MC may be used to imply a high level of live performance skill, while lyricist may be used to describe an artist with particularly intricate lyrics. However, the majority of the people interviewed for this book used these terms interchangeably, so to avoid confusion, How to Rap makes no distinction between the terms—they all refer to someone who raps. I kick stories, I kick conscious shit, I kick braggadocio shit, freestyles.
I kick everything. The content of a hip-hop song sometimes called the subject matter includes every subject you talk about in your lyrics. Hip-hop artists tackle a huge range of content in their music—anything you can think of can become the subject of a hip-hop track. Sometimes I rap about stuff from clubs. Sometimes I rap about the world. It just comes—whatever inspires me. MURS, for example, says, I can write about anything. There have always been simple rappers, and there have always been complex rappers.
There have always been a lot of different types of rap, and there still are a lot of different types of rap. Most MCs like to have strong content, because it helps them express themselves better as artists, rather than just rhyming for the sake of rhyming.
If I just wanted to pull out a rhyming dictionary and make something just to make words rhyme, I could do that, but I be having thought behind the things I say. Many listeners like to hear something being said in a hip-hop track, so having strong content is a great way to draw people to your music.
Entertaining content will always draw people in. There are a lot of MCs that I can think of that do subject matter really, really well. Good content also makes your lyrics deeper, which can keep people interested in your music. Chuck D of Public Enemy notes that a good flow can make up for a lack of subject matter, but always short term.
Life is a great source of material. Lyrics are readily available if you can simply rap about what has happened to you at some point in your life. I go out there and I live it—I write my life and then I put it on paper. Cops just beat you up and arrested you, you gonna write a rhyme about it. Write about yourself. The best way to become a great MC, I feel, is to make your ordinary story, about how you grew up, extraordinary.
Lyrics that deal with real life are a great way to connect with listeners, as people can easily relate to what you are saying if they have been through something similar. Many of the most admired artists use this technique. You felt it and it touched you that way—it hits your heart. Look at Eminem. Eminem represented for all of the white trash, as they say, with the trailer park and all of the other stuff.
He took a whole audience with him. Even if listeners have not gone through the exact same experience, they will find it easier to relate to the content if they know that the artist has actually experienced it, and if the artist is able to express all the emotion of that experience in his or her lyrics.
And so the only way that I really know to definitely ensure that is to [write] stuff about my life. Writing from real-life experience is also a good way to express yourself as an artist and deal with topics that are important to you. I think being any kind of artist, you gotta tell your story, you gotta get off your chest the things that you think about on the daily.
Although many MCs write content that is exclusively based on real life, there are also plenty of MCs who feel that there is a place in hip-hop for fictional content. I always try to use my imagination, so I usually try to just draw from my imagination on some Steven Spielberg shit. Fictional content can make lyrics very vivid and entertaining, as you are limited only by what you can think of, rather than having to stick to what actually happened in real life.
Make some stuff up, man. Different types of songs may call for different amounts of fiction or reality. For example, a lot of battle-oriented songs see chapter 2, p. Many MCs use both reality and fiction in their content.
As much as there is black and white, there is a gray area, and all things should be represented, and that gives it the spice. Often, hip-hop lyrics focus on topics that can be controversial, such as violence, sex, drugs, alcohol, power, and money. These forces are sometimes said to have a negative impact on society, but artistically speaking they are inherently attention-grabbing subjects—which is why numerous classic hip-hop albums have revolved around them and will continue to do so.
No one saw gangsta rap coming. Yeah, right! And now everything on the radio [is like that]. Many artists argue that the negative topics covered in hip-hop lyrics simply reflect those elements that are present in society. One such artist is Lord Jamar of Brand Nubian—a group that is actually noted for its positive, socially conscious lyrics.
I guess hip-hop represents society in general and America, the best and worst of it. Many of the best MCs have covered controversial subjects at some point in their careers and have found that they can inspire great creativity. Back in the day, what me and Sticky [Fingaz] used to do is see who could write the most fucked-up shit, like who could write the worst shit. But these artists put a high level of craft and attention to detail into writing about controversial subject.

Прошу прощения. Офицер покачал головой, словно не веря своим глазам. - Я должен был вам рассказать… но думал, что тот тип просто псих. - Какой тип? - Беккер хмуро взглянул на полицейского. - Тот, что вызвал скорую. Он болтал что-то на ужаснейшем испанском, который мне только доводилось слышать. - Он сказал, что на руке у мистера Танкадо было кольцо.
Конечно. Так, чтобы не осталось и следа. Сьюзан нахмурилась. Она понимала, что найти принадлежащую Хейлу копию ключа будет очень трудно. Найти ее на одном из жестких дисков - все равно что отыскать носок в спальне размером со штат Техас.
Сьюзан отвернулась. - Не имеет значения. Кровь не. Выпустите меня отсюда. - Ты ранена? - Стратмор положил руку ей на плечо.
Не поддается, сэр? - с трудом произнесла .
- Он хотел нас спасти. Но снова и снова он протягивал руку, так, чтобы люди обратили внимание на кольцо. Он хотел объяснить им, но не. И все тянул и тянул к ним свои пальцы. В Севилье Беккер лихорадочно обдумывал происходящее.
- Я имела в виду Кармен. - Это имя она произнесла с нарочитым пуэрто-риканским акцентом. - Кого? - спросил он чуть осипшим голосом. - Кармен.
