    It never hurts to have doubled vocals. At the very worst, you just mute the double. For some rappers it sounds terrible - for other rappers couldn't imagine their voices without em'.

    I prefer doubles to blend - then sometimes in the mix I'll use the quieter double to sort of fill in "empty" frequency areas. But how you work your doubles is personal to your sound.

    like storyville said, "at the worst just mute the double." layering became easier after i got used to just spitting it again and seeing how it sounded forced or w/e.

    How to Record Vocals Depends on Variables

    I find how to record vocals depends on a few things. The lyrical content, the timber of the voice, the particular rhythm or accent you may want to feature etc are things to consider. I generally like to switch from concept to concept within a joint. This helps with the attention span, of the average listener.
    Sometimes corny reverb works and sometimes flat solo or doubling works. The only steadfast rule with recording is not to have mechanical noise disrupting the artistic performance.
