History of Rap


The popular rap, as it is known today, was established in the 80s, and has influenced genres ranging from folk music to hard rock (heavy metal). Its origins are from Africa and Jamaica, where he had an emphasis on lyrical content and rhythm.


What creates the notion that rap music makes advocacy of violence in society is a plausible scenario are the trends in the use of fire as part of the rhythm, the lyrical content with graphic scenes of violence, signs of gang life and records of popular rap stars serving sentences in prison.


Rap has greatly influenced trends on clothing. Clothes in rap videos is often wide, with a strong focus on gold and platinum jewelry.

Creating diversity

Although often African Americans, rap musicians can be of different races. With the growing popularity of rap music and the increase in other musical genres, about young people from different social and ethnic backgrounds.

An Escape

Rap is often an outlet and a survival mechanism for disadvantaged youth. The lyrical music and his affinity with the gain of money often encourage young people to pursue a career in rap.

How to Rap

Establishes a rhythm. Whether it’s a digital drum loop or a drum machine, you’ll need a rhythm to rap. Play around with the punches to get to something interesting and energetic enough to be repeated over and over as a background.

Create a bass line. The bass line can be spare and supplemental or melodic and exhaust. Use of a synth bass or bass tone.

Think of a catchy rhythm. This will be the catchy, melodic part of the song, which is often used as a chorus. Ask a friend to sing a couple lines that relate to the main theme of the rap, or do it yourself if you have the voice for it.

Write the letter of the song. Start with a freestyle over the backing track. Play with some words that rhyme, and just look what comes out. Once you begin to move in a rhyme scheme begins to focus the content of the letters and write good lines.

Structure the song. Most songs have two or three verses interspersed with choruses. Including a breakdown in the middle to add depth to the structure. Distribution is often a moderate departure from the repetitive structure from the verse and chorus, keeping rhythm or bass line while changing the flow of letters.

Put it all together. Once you have the lyrics to fit the structure, put everything together and have a rap song.
