  1. I'm the illest rapper alive watch me do my thing
    I contradict all your beliefs i got not bling
    I'm reppin the south and the 423
    I hate fakes i wouldn't even spew thee
    But when ya see me pull up in my lude
    You can't count all the money i've accrued
    I cruise fabreeze smilin wit my hubcaps
    But even danny tell me i got too many gaps
    This is just my daily life my daily grind

  2. I rap through my life leave haters twined
    I try hard, i try my best
    I puff my chest wide breast
    Don't mess wit my crew unless you got a tuck
    Ain't one to f***, but b**** don't press ya luck

  3. if you tryna make a song you gotta really know the beat and listen to how long you got before the hook drops again. my style is story telling so if i go over, its easier for me to just edit my verse and pick up where i left off.

  4. This is god-level trolling. Props to every moron in the comments who 1) didn't get it and 2) actually caught feelings. I see y'all.

  5. A bar is a musical measure, not a line. 4 beats "a.k.a" bob your head 4 times = 1 bar. 

    A guideline to flowing words over a bar is by is counting syllables. In 1 bar (4 beats), you can fit:

    4 syllables (a note or beat) = slow flow

    8 syllables (half note) = faster but hippy hoppy like a nursery rhyme, Biggie likes to rap like this

    16 syllables (16th note) =  closest to regular speech speed, most rappers sit at this tempo

    32 syllables (32nd note) = very fast, almost impossible to hear or understand on faster songs, busta rhymes and tech n9ne like to rap in that zone.

    The rule is often to put your "rhyme" word or syllable(s) at the end of the bar (4th beat), You can sketch a unique flow by mixing halfs, 16ths and 32nd syllable notes sporadically in bars. Mastering that craft will allow you to create an authentic pattern flow that still sounds good to the ear and gives you identity.

  7. All I know is grass wont grow in a city where man wont go
    desperation is a steady medication tho specially when your flat broke
    cant afford the food let alone the coke so I save my nose and smoke
    Pass the bic it's time to choke I inhale the new exhale o's

  9. 2 bars: (Almost quoted Canibus' lyrics 4,3,2,1 remix)
    "I'm the illest rapper alive watch me prove it/
    I'll snatch your crown with your head still attached to it"

    For those just starting study some Canibus. Dude was the 'illest' in his day..

  10. it's not that hard..
    for example these lyrics are from a biggie song:
    Today's agenda, got the suitcase up in the Sentra Go to room 112, tell them Blanco sent ya

    now that line is 2 bars "Today's agenda, got the suitcase up in the Sentra" that's the first bar
    "Go to room 112, tell them Blanco sent ya" that is the second bar.
