Shibe says the sounds that surround you should be counted as part of music. So technically: every new listen is a remix.

You should live in my halls for 3AM grime sessions then. You don't even have to leave your bed to hear it completely clearly! for free!

They happen on every weekday and weekends.

Does anyone have any good tutorials on Rap and Free Styling 101, as well tutorials on how to write Rap lyrics and Music Lyrics? I tried to write with out any guidance and usually my stuff just ends up becoming poetry..DEEP poetry.

Iambic penameter. Iambic pentameter is the refuge of hack poetry and rap alike. As you've probably noticed, a vast vocabulary is not a trademark of hip-hop. Well... let me rephrase that, a complex vocabulary is not a trademark of hip-hop. Plus, add to that that it's almost customary to be grammatically incorrect, drop syllables and just change pronunciations and you haven't got to do much. Do iambic pentameter and add some sort of emphasis. A very common variation is to add two stressed syllables -since you're only speaking and not singing you can add stress at will even if the syllable itself doesn't have it- in the down beat. Also, and this applies to normal song writing as well: if it has more than three syllables it is most advisable to leave that word out. It can work, but it's probably not the best route to take.

"a vast vocabulary is not a trademark of hip-hop. Well... let me rephrase that, a complex vocabulary is not a trademark of hip-hop" - I don´t know where you get that from, HipHop is quite possibly the genre that uses the most complex and widest vocabulary. Only Spoken Word is more lyric-based and spoken word and hiphop kinda fuse at some point.
User avatar #136325 to #136317 - thebestpieever (12/01/2014) [-]
Because it's filled with slang, and very rarely uses words that are not found in casual conversation with anyone past secondary school. So is the case with either music, but then again, that never uses the most interesting vocabulary either.
User avatar #136327 to #136325 - ljxjlos (12/01/2014) [-]
Well, awesomeninjathing is right - leave the hiphop talk to people who know what they´re talking about because you seemingly still think that 50 Cent is all there is to rap.
User avatar #136328 to #136327 - thebestpieever (12/01/2014) [-]
Alright, nigger. I invite you to prove me wrong. In a world where not even most poets can't do better than "Azure" as far as synonyms go, I'd be more than willing to see what you call "complex".
User avatar #136330 to #136328 - ljxjlos (12/01/2014) [-]
Yet again, you look at rap like it´s only the mainstream.
That´s like saying all metal is the same because you only know Metallica.

Give lyricists like Sage Francis or Scroobius Pop a try. There´s a reason why Rap is sometimes called Poetry on a Beat.
User avatar #136331 to #136330 - thebestpieever (12/01/2014) [-]
I agree it's mostly poetry. Guess what? Most poetry doesn't have a complex vocabulary either. Go back and read "The Hollow Men". One of the best poems written? Absolutely. The vocabulary is still on level of a fifteen year old. Because complex, doesn't equal good. And hip-hop doesn't require you to leap at its defence against people that aren't attacking it.
User avatar #136332 to #136331 - ljxjlos (12/01/2014) [-]
I´m not "leaping at hiphops defence" - I´m arguing because I find it strictly idiotic when people judge things without knowing about half of it. That´s just plain retarded. I for example don´t know jackshit about Dubstep - so you´ll never hear me talk about it like I do. You obviously don´t know to much about HipHop or you wouldn´t be spouting phrases like you do - and that´s why you might want to step back from talking about it.
It´s not really a matter of the musical genre. It could be about metal, it could be a bout quantum physics - if you don´t really know enough about a subject, you shouldn´t try to make others think that you do.
User avatar #136333 to #136332 - thebestpieever (12/01/2014) [-]
Prove me wrong, then. Because what you're saying is on the level of arguing agaisnt someone saying that Metal is mostly composed of small melodic bits known as riffs intead of more traditional chord progressions. It's an inarguable fact. Most Hip-Hop doesn't have a complex vocabulary. Because most music does not. Because the same is of most people. The same is true of most poets, and the same is true of most writers, including me.

A complex vocabulary is complex for a reason. That reason being that language exists to comunicate and as it becomes increasingly complicated it takes more effort from your interlocutor to depicher what the fuck you're banging on about. Therefore very few people actually bother to build a vast and complex vocabulary. And even among those who do, they will choose to forfeit that vocabulary in favour of clarity and simplicity. It's an accomplishment in and of itself, sure, but it's not a goof thing always. Particularly not when creating art very dependant on rhythm of speech.

So I reiterate myself: I stand by my statement that most of anything that's written on our level is not in any way complex when it comes to vocabulary. Because you and I are retards with a basic lexicon. Prove me wrong, then. Show me that, if not the rule, it is fairly common for hip-hop to use a vocabulary beyond most people's capabilities.
User avatar #136334 to #136333 - ljxjlos (12/01/2014) [-]
Yet again, I already told you names.

I´m not arguing with most things you said, but contrary to most other genres, Rap uses the play with words as a way to express itself. And even if it makes you sound like a pseudointellectual twat, you´ll need to have a big array of big words ready to use if you want to play with words. That´s how the more intelligent parts of rap work. I never said that a vast vocabulary is better or worse, but it´s a given that you need one if you want to succeed in the parts of a genre where wordplay is a means of success.
User avatar #136335 to #136334 - thebestpieever (12/01/2014) [-]
But here's the operative word: a vast vocabulary is not a complex one. You could fill a paper sheet with two hundred-well you couldn't, but it's a figure of speech- different basic adding problems. That sheet is still not complex to solve.
User avatar #136336 to #136335 - ljxjlos (12/01/2014) [-]
´Dunno, in my understanding, a complex usage of ones vocabulary and a complex vocabulary work just the same, imo.
User avatar #136338 to #136336 - ljxjlos (12/01/2014) [-]
Guess that´s that, then.
User avatar #136337 to #136336 - thebestpieever (12/01/2014) [-]
Well you are wrong and arguing bollocks, then. I'm also arguing bollocks, for that matter.
User avatar #136267 to #136263 - awesomerninjathing ONLINE (11/30/2014) [-]
how about we leave the rap discussion to people with actual knowledge in the genre, okay walker? :^)

It's not that its bad, its just I don't know the format of how to actually write music lyrics / rap /lyrics if someone can give me a break down of it or a website or something like that, it would be great.
User avatar #136260 to #136259 - awesomerninjathing ONLINE (11/30/2014) [-]
well the thing is you're able to do whatever the fuck you want mainly because rap is so diverse and has the hipster subgenre and shit like that, so it doesn't have to really follow any "form"

$29 headphones, they've served me well and the sound is pretty good.   
   
you're a fool to spend a ton of money on headphones, especially if you keep them in a box and only use them from time to time. if you're in the music industry then sure but there's no need to spend over $100 (maybe $200) on headphones.

It's a hobby, but I must say I listen to the Stax daily, for multiple hours and usually use the HE-400 and the HD650 while in bed or reading. So I use them all quite frequently. The sources are also up to standard.
#136233 to #136232 - John Cena (11/29/2014) [-]
but why? those headphones must be hella expensive. why spend that much on things that do the same job?

I don't get it.
#136235 to #136233 - nonoise (11/29/2014) [-]
As I said it's a hobby maybe it's snake oil, but all of those have different sound signatures and excel in different music styles. The He 400 are planar magnetic they are awesome for DnB and Trance, the HD650 are really good dynamics and are pretty good for rock or some folk. The Stax are perfect for calssical and jazz and have a very flat response. All in all I just love headphones. Maybe in your eyes I am crazy, but it's my favourite past time. So yeah.

I mean come on they're nice and all but at least discuss another topics, or bring us some updates, but I think we all memorized your same old headsets collection at this time.
