  • Yo yo and welcome to the show, if you don't already know I'm R-Dizzle.

  • That's just a little taste. Welcome to how to be a rapper,

  • if you don't already know my name is R-Dizzle and welcome to the show.

  • By the time you finish watching this video, you're gonna know

  • how to rap like a PRO-FESSIONAL, YO, HOE, TOE.

  • I just keep giving these rhymes out for free. You're welcome

  • to the show. My name is R-Dizzle if you don't already know.

  • First thing you gotta do in order to be a rapper is to come up with your rapper name.

  • A lot of people spend way too much time choosing the rapper name, all you guys do is

  • pick something simple and that makes sense to who you are.

  • For example, Eminem, he created that name because his real name is Marshall Mathers

  • M&M get it, like the candy M&M's which happens to be a chocolate which is like

  • the phone he used to have back in the day, the chocolate cell phone and cell phone

  • has the word CELL in it like jail cell, jails sounds like the initial JO JO backwards

  • is like Oj, Oj not like the orange juice but like OJ Simson the convict, like

  • Konvict Muzik founded by AKON, AKON, acorn

  • a corn on a cob, web, Webster's dictionary.

  • Wind that back to acorn, a single corn, a unicorn, a unicorn which is mystical and magical

  • the 2 Ms, the M and M and that's where EMINEM got his name, simple as that.

  • The next thing you are going to need in order to be a rapper is your signature catchphrase,

  • you know something you shout out in the beginning of a song, so people know that's you singing,

  • you know like Tyga always says: MUSTARD ON THE BEAT at the beginning of his songs.

  • Or like Trey Songz when he yells: YUUPPP! 50 Cent used to always say G-UNIT

  • or even like 2 CHAINZ when he acts like a Pokemon and he says his own name, 2 CHAINZ

  • Your catchphrase can be whatever you want it to be, just make sure it's unique, original and it doesn't sound like anybody else's.

  • Here are some tips that I made up to help you guys come up with your very own catchphrase:

  • You could buy a hotdog from a clumsy salesman

  • Oh sorry sir. Oh come on dude, you just got "MUSTARD ON MY FEET"

  • You could answer your brother's girlfriend when she asks if your brother is up.

  • Hello. Hey is your brother awake yet, he is not answering his phone?

  • "HE UP" You could act surprise when you find out about your friends not so masculine hobby.

  • Hey bro you wanna play some ball? I think I'm just going to knit today. "GEE? You KNIT?"

  • Or you can even be like a dentist who is really proud of his recent tooth replacement.

  • And we are done. "TOOTH Change!"

  • Next you are going to need your signature look. Something that people will look at and instantly think of you and only you.

  • For example, Lil Jon has a big ass cup,

  • or Pharrell has a big ass hat, Nicki Minaj has a big ass...concoction of colors on her face.

  • Every rapper has to have their very own thing that only they do.

  • For me, I almost carry around a cell phone whether it's in my hand,

  • in my pocket, in my bag it doesn't matter, it's my thing.

  • That's how my fans recognize me and that's how I recognize my fans.

  • Hey, I appreciate that, girl.

  • Hey, thanks for the support bro.

  • Hey bro you got a cell phone on you? No, but I got a pager though.

  • Oh, okay, so you're just a fan of my old stuff. Thanks man.

  • In order to really sound like a rapper, you have to learn how to un-enunciate,

  • Every rapper knows that the one thing you don't want people to do when they listen to your rap is understand it.

  • So you really wanna un-enunciate. So you want to not speak clearly,

  • for example, if the line is MAN I LOVE THAT GIRL TWERKING ON THE DANCE FLOOR

  • which is a pretty common rap line. You just have to un-enunciate to make it sound more rappy.

  • MAAH I LUHH DAT GURRR TWERKEH AH DA DAN FLO. Easy.

  • Once you got that down, the next thing is to pick your rapping style,

  • there's a lot of different rap styles out there that rappers like to use and you just gotta find the one that fits you,

  • such as whisper rapping:

  • Run girl trying to get your body wet, work that, let me see your drip sweat.

  • ASTHMA Rapping: Where is my inhaler.

  • You can use lazy rapping like Drake, started at the bottom of the stairs, still at the bottom because there is too many stairs.

  • Druggy rapping like Lil Wayne: Young Mula Baby...

  • Angry rapping like Eminem: *** close your eyes *** ma!

  • As quietly as you possibly can to the point that almost sounds like mumbling rapping like Justin Bieber:

  • If I was your boyfriend I would never let you go, I can take you place, catch a tiger by its toe. Some girl...

  • Too fast to understand rapping like, Busta Rhymes:

  • Let's go, cause it doesn't really matter what I say, what I say, what I say, cause you can't understand anyway way way,

  • cause the man in the back, 45 can get a 50, can I get a 55, 60 sold to the man in the black, in the black, in the black, in the black, in the black

  • Now you got all the tools you need to rap, the last thing you have to learn is how to write.

  • In order to create a rap just like some of the most brilliant mainstream rappers we have today,

  • all you have to do is remember the international rappers MOTTO:

  • write it, rap it, spit it on a track when you want a new rap, it's as simple as that.

  • If you can remember that MOTTO and apply all the lessons we covered so far,

  • you should sound a little something like this,

  • About to make some sound right now

  • that don't have any meaning, UH check Uh yo

  • U wanna learn how to write a rap song? HE-UP

  • U wanna learn how to sound like a mainstream rapper? GEE, YOU KNIT?

  • Well imma show you how right now. TOOTH CHANGE. Check, check. MUSTARD ON MY FEET. Uh, check, check.

  • Get your checkbook out. Get it out.

  • Write it all down for the right amount. Right amount. Wrap it in an envelope. Spit, to seal.

  • And you be on track for a record deal! Rap record deal. Rap rap record deal.

  • Buy your lyrics from a writer.

  • Rap record deal. Rap rap record deal.

  • Make this whole song in a minute. Rap record deals.

  • Oh my god, that's gross. TEEHEE.

  • Yo so thank you all so much for watching. If you wanna see the bloopers

  • and behind-the-scenes click the one on the left and the one on the right

  • because that one has the previous video. So have a good night.

Yo yo and welcome to the show, if you don't already know I'm R-Dizzle.
