"Do you have to rap within a bar?"
Thu Apr-12-07 12:08 AM by The Lyric


This is related to the thread on "Developing vocal rap skills..." (Lobby > Make The Music > topic #24908)

(1) Typically, rap/hiphop beats always have a kick and a snare. As in each bar typically starts with a kick and ends with a snare (or instruments the act as kick and snares). True or false?

(2.a) My main question is, for professional rapping, is it required that your syllables have to end on or before the snare? (like 99% of the time) (Note, that I say syllable as opposed to words) True or False? {I am most interested in the answer to this}

(2.b) If you do allow syllables to go over the snare, then sooner than later, you do have to end a syllable on or before the snare. True or false.

(3) If No. 2 is true, what are some SPECIFIC exercises that one can do to learn how to rap within that bar? When I say specific exercises, I mean that saying "just practice" is not helpful.

Thanks a lot.

PS: (My reply to this post would explore this topic a little further just so you guys can see where I am coming from; that way, we can have a constructive convo about this.)

i think what you are trying to say is "staying in the pocket"

a good rap should convey a confident rhythm aka "feeling it"
Apr 12th 2007
You have to fucking feel it
