Step 2: so you want to start rapping... well lets take a look at what you need to do before you can rap

First off the key to starting rap is you need to have a "flow" like I stated in the beginning. So start off by freestyling and clearing your throat. With freestyling the key is to start off small to build your word association. Remember that from grade school. Word association is *example - DUCK, LUCK, MUCK, SUCK, BUCK..... and so on*. Now Practice freestyling with your friends and improve at this. Also at this time You'll need to find out what your style is, Yukmouth has a Nasty Monsterous voice, Method Man has a grimey cloudy voice, Snoop dogg has a Laid Back style like Richie Rich, Twista has a fast tongue twisting style, Bone thugs n Harmoney all have the Fast yet Harmonizing singin style. Find what youre most comfortable with and it'll be your gimick or whats actually known as your "LYRICAL PRESENCE"

then this brings us to step 3

Freestyling - means rapping without having time to write anything down.

ill use this video from youtube i made for how to freestyle as an example cause i feel it still applies to this guide

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.

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.
