    or one could read further (rather more just simply right) and like it like a simile........mak what's your favorite rap metaphor?......favorite simile?.......favorite part of speech?

    I agree man. I only look at the syllable count if I can't figure out why I can't rap a bar to the corresponding beat right. lol

    so which one was that, metaphor, simile, idiom, wordplay, adverb, reverb, aye verb?.....
    i know you know what is what, but this just needs to be explained to stress change to your less sane reasoning........you know the definitions of parts of speech, they start to teach tards and geeks the art of speech parts in like 6th grade......maybe later but you're quite fit to know webster you got the web sir........simile metaphor =2 different literary tools.....

    I believe that... but in the instance you're describing, breath control would be active not passive.

    If you don't have the lung capacity, your breath control will be limited.

    It's why so many rappers use punch-ins... because they don't have the breath control to spit their bars seamlessly.

    The words don't dictate your breath control... your breath control dictates your capacity for constructing those syllable parameters

    actually it goes by syllable count here is what they said in the book

    flocabulary the rapeprs handbook


    Basic Tips on Flow​
    While every flow is unique, there are a few general
    things that you can do to improve yours.​
    1. Count Syllables​
    Counting syllables is the most basic way you can make
    sure that your flow is solid. The number of syllables in
    your line will depend on how fast you rap, but generally
    you’re going to want between 10-16 syllables per line.
    You probably want most of your lines to match up in
    the number of syllables. Here’s what can happen when
    they don’t match up. These lines contain some good​
    elements but are wrecked because of the flow.

    and it so often comes from writing not to a beat and so forth, as well as the fitness involved in being able to be so llong winded.......breath control dictates capacity for recording or rhyming on beat, but i think that's ikely hat you meant.......

    Man, imagine if KRS One circa 89-91, Ras Kass, or inventor of the multi Lord Finesse had a book on how to rap to guide them? Then entered the RSTL? Gala would have no chance.

    Also I'd like to read or hear a verse from Mak.

    He's a KOTD member? (yeah, I didn't know that, so my apologies for that :scared:)

    I'm bookmarking his vids though...

    Ty for this recommendation. (=


    :funny: No one's at the top until they reach it, so taking L's doesn't sound bad when there's a learning process involved. It might take me a while, but I'll get it eventually. Or the dictionary gets it. And finding a middle ground is key when trying to fuse all those things together, that I can fully agree on.

    Ty for your advice as well! (=

    I've honestly started off with making some points I wished to address when it came to the topic at hand, then made an essay...aaaaaand then, picked it apart, breaking it down into lines, and desperately tried to make it rhyme. :funny:

    I do consider rap and hip hop art forms on their own, especially when I'm able to see and hear what magic rappers who are doing it manage to play with, and see how effortlessly some of the most brilliant work comes across.

    The formula might take all the fun out of it, but until I can link things together, I'll need a safety net of sorts, and as much I'd like to think everything in life can be broken down into a mathematical formula and easy to grasp, it's not.

    For instance, a thread Makaveli21 posted not long ago, had rhymes bolded in a basic shape of axiomatic and central projection, which is known to me via descriptive geometry. Now, if take my essay, pick it apart, and insert only rhymes in places of that basic shape, it'll leave me with enough limited open space to include a story + metaphors + etc, but it will also make me run for my dictionary, since I'll need to tell a whole lot working with just a few syllables.

    Yeah, I'm hella weird. :scared:

    That's really a good advice, LP. Thank you, it's much appreciated. I did try with the "easy rhyming words" first...but ended up feeling..."wth am I doing, this makes 0 sense".

    If you'll feel like it, you should consider entering into RSTL or RBL leagues here on RM..
