When learning how to rap one very important technique to acquire is the ability to fit your lyrics to beats. Often times us rappers may be inspired to write in a moments notice and before we know it we have a whole verse or even a song but with no instrumental to rap it to. Once we do find a beat to rap to we often are faced with the dilemma of our lyrics not fitting perfectly with the beat.
Now more experienced rappers may write lyrics with a sort of internal tempo if you will. When you become more familiar with your style of rapping you will be able to more easily write lyrics without a beat while still having a structured tempo and rhythm to your rhymes. This makes it a lot more easier to apply your lyrics to a beat once you find one that suites you.
Less experienced rappers will most likely find this task a little more problematic. It can be kind of frustrating when you don’t have a clear idea of what is causing your lyrics to sound off beat and you may not know ways that you can tailor fit your lyrics to mesh well with the instrumental. Don’t pull your hair out lol that is why I am here!
In this video I will break all of that down. I use lyrics that I wrote without a beat and then I invite you in as I begin to fit my lyrics to a beat from start to finish.
