Check out this lesson on Rap from ‘Dabbledoo Music’:
|Basics of Rap
Rapping is a form of rhythmic, rhyming speech over a beat. This could be a simple pulse, stamping your feet, or a full musical backing track. Here’s an example of a very simple rap from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (your parents should remember this one!). Notice the first two lines and the last two lines rhyme with each other. This is a very simple way to arrange your rhyming structure.
In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out max and relaxing all cool
And shootin’ some B ball outside of the school
Also notice the words in bold are on the strong beat of the music. You can pick out a similar emphasis on words if you read a poem. In this poem [‘Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth] it is the second and fourth lines that rhyme with each other and the 1st and the 3rd.
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vale and hill
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of golden daffodils
Finding the Words
You could practice rapping by taking a well-known rhyme or poem and rapping it along with the beat. In the video below, by filmmaker Wes Tank, he takes a book by Dr. Seuss and uses it to rap over some beats. In this example, there are loads of simple rhymes and repeated words. The rhymes get more complicated as the song progresses. https://youtu.be/LB4BD2LrBQs
Now you try it!
Take a famous rhyme or poem and say it rhythmically. Take something simple like Mary had a Little Lamb and try to say it in different ways. Have fun with it and experiment. There is no right or wrong!
Once you have a few ideas you can start making up your own rhymes.
Keep exercising each day. Try this week’s challenge or come up with your own!
|· Find 60% of 765
· Write 60% as a fraction = 3/5
