*Note that Instructables screwed me out of a fair contest in there burning questions contest Round 4. But the contest was intended to help people who wanted solid, real, first hand insight, On rapping and freestyleing. An that is what i tried to do. An the People in charge who i wont name inadvertently acted ignorantly and ruined a fair contest. By allowing a late submission to win. So because i am the bigger person i decided to put these helpful guides available to the people who wanted to use them. Instead of removing them as i had done. But i recieved 100's of emails and posts on my forum for support to talk about it and people claiming they want my guide back to help them. An wanted to use my guide as help for what we do on our show which is freestyle emcee. So because of you the actual people who want this guide this is for you (the fact im putting it back on this website). So for everyone who emailed me, thanks for the support and i am glad i could help you out. for those who dont believe in having fair contest's and want to have people write these guides under false pretense's... GO F*NK YOURSELF!!!!!!!! . but continiue on with my guide if you want help on the subject of Rapping............. If you want to continue to email and message on help on freestyling and rapping an how to do it please message me and go for it at DJPROTOJEEX@AIM.COM or msg me on aim or yahoo at DJPROTOJEEX check me out at www.midwestcreations.tk. Thanks for the support.

Okay so now we can start this guide on how to RAP

this Instructable is to help guide anyone to become a rapper. Now I'm going to lay out a easy guide to help anyone become a rapper like we do on our radio show. So if you want to try and be a rapper take a look at this guide. Read a few helpful hints to teach you how to start laying down your raps.
You Also before hand should read my instructable on how to freestyle. cause a large part of writing/composing a Rap has to do with your ability to "FLOW". Cause if the words cant "FLOW" off the tip of your tongue how can you expect to RAP it. Basically this guide is going to be a small overlay of how someone would like to start rapping on a serious level. This would be the recording/ all musical side of the "FLOW"

before we start I want to quote - ROLZA

"nah you dont need to be the same as every other artist to make something. you need to make your own light. You gotta be able to stand up for yourself, if you cant hold yourself then you cant ever plan to hold a mic."

"FLOW" - when I say flow its your lyrical ability and presence such as being able to freestyle.

at the end there will be some resources to help people out

this video is going to be on the beginning of all my guides cause were all princes of the universe. and cause I LOVE Freddie Mercury

Step 1: a little brief history of rap

I'm going to repost some and modify for length purposes. a article called
The Art of Rapping published - 4th March 2003

most of it will be rewritten from a chapter to a paragraph

Rap music is the centerstone of hip-hop. This genre origins from African American culture. Indeed, there is no argument rappers are more frequently Afro-American than not. With history the tensions between races is still very significant on a social level in the States. Most commonly in city/urban environments where many "URBAN" rappers consider their roots to be. This can make it extremely difficult for people of other ancestral backgrounds to become involved in the style. So show no fear. Because the white rapper Eminem has changed this stereotype. When he went and proved, that music is blind and will always lean in favor of talent when it can. though potential white rappers should be aware of the risks of ridicule from their black hip-hop counterparts. Which means you might get thrown in a dumpster full of wonderbread right, doubtful. This leaves the differences in that skin color can be used to your advantage. Eminem regularly makes references to his race, and observes that this may have added to his success. As white music buyers feel they can relate to him better.

"At this launching point, Eminem fans have gone on to try music from others such as D12 - Eminem's rap group - and Dr Dre, a black rap artist who produces much of his music. Even the stupid horrible movie 8 Mile, has also been reviewed favorably for introducing a number of lesser-known artists to the Hip-Hop mainstream. Effectively, this has helped expose white culture more to the genre and further diminish the strong racial barriers which once were built. Thanks to this, it is probably easier now for white rappers to achieve success than it ever was before. Hence nobody of any culture should feel that they cannot attempt to RAP in Hip-Hop for any reason."

So if by reading this you can gain anything its. It doesn't matter what race you are, where you are from, what lifestyle you had. Cause you still have the ability to rap. You might even come to find out that more then 50% of all rappers who claimed they have had hard times. all came from upper middle class homes. According to vibe only 10 percent of rappers might actually have had a life they rap about. So what does this tell you most of your rap is going to be of fiction like Eminem or 50 cents movies, all works of fiction. Now lets have me stop wasting your time and get down to the point of this Instructable how to start rapping.

heres the definition of fiction for those who want to argue its basis later on

luv rap. 5*, and favorited
What nonsense. Technics are by far the best and insustry standard even to this day. Numarks are crap. I hate them. Awful handling and performance. Will never get anything better than technics.
Great instructable, I was looking around and this caught my attention, which is odd because I don't like today's rap music at all (at least the stuff I hear on my radio), but I thought it might help me with another style of music that I'm trying to write for, rock. I have great music to put words on top of, but when I sit down and really think about something to write about, my mind just draws a blank. Is there anything I can do to tap into and exercise this aspect of the human brain that makes lyrics?
hey. I HAVE A NEW RAP SONG!!!!!!!!!
ok theres a exclusive download for this guide on the last step so check it out if you want some instrumentals.
heres my updated video for how to rap. this was all freestyle done in 4 takes of simultaneous recording. So i hope everyone enjoys my rap called &quot;thee instructables&quot; so i hope everyone enjoys and true peace<br/><br/><div style="margin-left:15px;"> <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hYurlVWa1W8"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hYurlVWa1W8" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344" wmode="transparent"></embed></object></div><br/><br/>
As this instructable teaches you to rap, I'll teach you to cheat. When I get writers block or I'm looking for a particular message and need the right word for it to flow correctly I look to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.rhymezone.com">http://www.rhymezone.com</a><br/>
YA, rhymezone is aight. its your basic "URBAN" thesaurus. A thesaurus all frenched up, so you think it specifically applies to the application. which is good, and why i say nothing helps better then a thesaurus. If you plan to rap, then plan to read.
I will invent a voice recognition thesaurus that auto-updates after every pause in word input. MWAHAHHA
are those technics tables i see? nice. and a DJM-600
no technics are overrated and not worth the money. NUMARKS OWN TECHNICS. 15 years ago or in 1997 ida said technics are the best money can buy. now you got digital pitch control, built in bpm meters, hand wound motors not motors that were designed to be in a drill. Only downside to a numark is the plastic shell, or is it a downside. last i checked two numarks in a flight case made the faa's 50lb weight limit. 2 1200's dont so its more of a benifit then a downside.
and numarks got torque like a paxton supercharged 572 Chevy Nova...... hahaha and there as complicated as that sounds........
personally, i dont really like the numarks. they seem to break easy, but i haven't really worked with em that much. i wish i could afford technics, but if youve used them u can see the quality and torque is much better than anything else. if you dont want to spend a bunch stantons are good too because theyre not plastic and they have good quality
I own both 1210 mk5s and ttx1's and the ttx1's have the same torque if not more. these tt-500s that are in the picture i also feel are better then my 1210s which is why they sit on a shelf waiting to be sold. quality control really isn't that high anymore in technics. thats why i say 10 years ago yea, but now there hardly that great. There still the same thing as they sold 10 years ago but less in quality. I've never had a numark break. and the only time I've needed one serviced, i had it back in 7 days. I got a used one and the digital pitch pcb board was blown from lightning or something. Also numarks are alot better for the price, for customer service and the finished products. and once again numarks are much better being plastic cause you can throw 2 of em in a flight case. and they will actually make it on the flight. and it saves the consumer about 600 dollars. these are better in my opinion much better then the 1210s i paid 800 dollars for. These Numarks only costed 188 dollars. Then i was refunded 60 dollars cause the needles where missing. Which i didn't need the groove cartridges anyways. never find 2 technics for that price brand new. prolly not even used ones from 20 years ago that are broken. oh and numarks have 2 electronic brakes that can be adjusted 100 times better then technics for much better tricks. but technic does have nice cd turntable and that scratch mixer but for the prices never be my first pic. technics are just established and overrated. and i don't plan on dropping my turntable so it having a plastic shell doesn't matter. actually makes it alot easier to move around with less worry of dropping.
can someone post the link for the audacity post?
