This is my instructable on how to write a rap, if you don't read my instructable, your lyrics will be crap. Word.
In my animation class, a friend and I decided to write a rap about our class (entitled "Animation Station"), and include a line or two about each student and a characteristic of them. It was originally just to get everybody involved in our own project and has now escalated into creating a music video with all of us in it (stop motion animation).
The following materials will be beneficial, to help create a rap that's special.
pen&paper (to record)
computer or ipod (for the beat/musical inspiration)
a friend* (writing with a friend is much easier&you have someone to bounce ideas off of)
