Learn to Rap


Pick up my comprehensive how to rap course and learn step by step how to rap better (at a discount): To Rap – Rhyme Schemes

Rhyme schemes are simply the rhyme patterns in a set of lines or in a song. More or less, rhyme schemes are a way to map out the rhymes within lines. So for example:

A
A

The letters correlate with rhymes within the verse. So A/A like this would be one rhyme word at the end of each line.

Would be something like this:

I run the entire TOWN (A)
Always stand, never go DOWN (A)

That’s about the most simple it gets. There’s also:

A
A
B
B

We’re mapping out four lines here
Which would be something like

I run the entire TOWN (A)
Always stand, never go DOWN (A)
I’m stronger than most MEN (B)
And that’s why I hold a PEN (B)

These four lines match to what we’ve mapped out earlier.
Mostly, those are the two basic types you’re going to see when rapping, just expanded and made more complex. For example….

AB
AB

We run this place and make the RHYMES (A) SIMPLE (B)
Popping faces open like a MIME’S (A) PIMPLE (B)

The pattern fits to the end of the verse.
(Which is essentially the incorporation of multis/multi-syllable rhymes)

But the rhymes don’t always fit to the end of the verse, lots of verses have internal rhymes.

AB…..AB
AB

I’m TOP (A) NOTCH (B), so check the STOP (A) WATCH (B)
Jumping out of the box like it was HOP (A) SCOTCH (B)

Rhyme words now match up in the middle of the verse.

If you wanted to get even more complex you could do something like this

ABC………BC
AA………..BC

NEVER (A) atTACK (B) PEOPLE if you can’t reACT (B) EQUAL (A) CLEVER (A) heads for justice and SMACK (B) EVIL letters don’t all match up in the same spots in the verse and they don’t have to. More than anything, this is a way to map out the rhymes within a verse.

By now you should be able to tell there’s infinite combinations you could put together here so just play around with these things and build on them. There’s no set rhyme scheme you have to use, be creative. And like always, don’t let these overpower meaning in your verse. Use the more advanced ones where appropriate with your style and message.

I should have one of these out every other week so be on the lookout for that. Any quality improvement ideas would be great. Oh and don’t forget to.
