If you love hip-hop, already spend all day listening to it and yearning to be a part of that world, here are a few pointers that will help you when it comes to how to write a rap song. Usually the beat plays for 4 or 8 bars before the rapper comes in.
As your students are writing their hooks, know that they have these options. But what if you don't have the time or skills to come up with your own literary devices?
Or try a local DJ, school, or club scene. Yes, this may mean a bit of arranging and rearranging once again or maybe not a bitbut I told you this was going to be messy!
If you want to be successful in anything, you first need to have a solid grasp on the absolute basics and yet I see so many people not even attempting to learn the building blocks of successful songs. From there, you can cut words, add some, replace others and — perhaps most importantly when it comes to a genre of music like hip-hop — play with how you pronounce things.
