Do you guys have any idea of how to rap really fast lines? A lot of Eminem songs (especially on Recovery) are really fast and everytime I try to rap along with the song I run out of breath. How does he breathe? Can someone give me some tips?

Fast rapping = fapping.


That is all.




On topic; practice, I guess.

Wow BloodyPaperclip, your sig is so huge, it must surely mean you are a deep person! Oh, Eminem is the greatest lyricist to walk this earth, oh wow you must have a lot of character! And you're asking about how to rap fast in a guitar forum? That's just it, you're easily the greatest person I've met!

I thought the thread title said fast fapping.

I am a little disappoint.

Congratulations, sarcasm at its best.

I've always been able to rap fast. Never world record fast, but I was born with a good amount of vocal control to be able to do it. Maybe it's something you're born with.

Same with anything else, gotta practice.

seems like the popularity of fast/ uptempo hip hop has really gone down like, since the mid 90's though

Is this necessary? Contribute to the thread, or don't, simple.

You have to time your breaths, when you know a set of bars is rapped very quickly, draw in more air prior to that part.

Hip hop/rap has probably got worse more than any other genre, you use to need genuine talent to do it, now Lil wayne is a famous rapper FFS.

You want fast rap? I agree with MightyAri, Tech N9ne. Try the song "Breathe" or "Stamina"

start off by rapping song that arent so fast, but at a loud voice.. then, slowly go into faster songs, but at a lower voice. and keep working like that. works like a charm brutha

Thanks, finally the first real answer.

Tech N9ne, Busdriver, Twista can get pretty fast.

For the record, flow and rhyme is more important than speed.... Immortal Technique and Tech N9ne ftw.

EDIT: Oh, you don't like Tech. No wonder you like Eminem.


. No, but seriously.

LIL WAYNE??? Every song I have heard from him is wicked slow and he raps like he is high or intoxicated. All the songs he has done with Eminem have been so slow and they sucked.


But I'm really just a hater for Lil Wayne, I'm just butthurt because he is a spotlight hugger. Everytime I try to give him an honest chance though, I'm always disapointed. Any recomendations of his songs?


Also I think I'm thinking of flow when I say speed, on Recovery Eminem has like a fast flow though and I dont understand how he can breathe without stopping like that. I almost passed out trying to rap to Cold Wind Blows.

Lil wayne actually has a fast part, pretty much only one that i can remember.

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

You realize that when rappers record in the studio, they probably just punch in every line to avoid breaths, right?
