Updated 25 October Children's Author and poet Tony Mitton has written some helpful hints on making your own rap Rap is a chanted kind of spoken poetry with a strong beat and a regular rhyme-scheme, like this Rap is verse with a good, strong beat with rhymes that keep it sounding neat.
Rap is made up of couplets, a couplet is 2 lines of verse that rhymes on their first syllables. If you write rap down it has 4 beats per line and 8 beats per couplet. Tony's 5 Top Tips Think of a theme to write your rap about.
Here are a few examples: A particular topic such as horror - Dracula's eating habits in Batty Rap Name-list rap - rhyme on people's names such as 'Then there's Collin he can't stop listening up to rock and pop'.
Open rap - a rap on some subject or story that you really want to write for yourself. Maybe it is something you feel strongly about such as endangered animals.
Tip 2 - Kickstart Start by thinking of two lines. Using the idea of the couplet write two lines with 4 beats in each. This will help you to get started on the rest of the rap. Tip 3 - Mix and match Use a variety of words to stop the rap getting too samey.
You can even use words such as wanna, gonna and ain't. You can be funny or serious and even turn sentences around to make them more interesting. Remember it is best if you think of two words that rhyme such as stars and cars you can work backwards from them and fill in the rest of the lines.
I wanna be an astronaut and fly to the stars I wanna be a racing driver, speeding in cars Tip 5 - Imagination Use your imagination - the wider the range of subjects the more interesting the rap will be.
I wanna be a rock star and sing with a band I wanna ride a camel across a desert land So get scribbling now!!It's a hard lesson to learn, and one Tony Mitton captures with vivid simplicity for the potter's boy.
