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).

Every good rapper got a name, to shine in lights when they get hit with the fame.


Before you write your rap you need a name to publish it under. Some people use their real full names like, Kanye West. Some people use a middle name like Drake (Audrey Drake Graham). While some people use random names that literally are untraceable to their real names, like Classified (Luke Boyd). In my case I belong to a 'rap gang' which goes by kR3w. kr3w consists of three members currently: Pawesome, Tigrrr & Cheese.
