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