One of the reasons that new and experienced rappers have trouble finding the right rap beats is because they really don’t know their style of rapping. A lot of rappers think that they know, but they really don’t. This is because they spend so much time listening to their favorite rap artists, and as a result they can get wrapped up in that artist’s style, which may or may not be comfortable.
If you want to stand out as a unique rap artist, then you must have your own unique style. The way to find and develop your style is to take a break from listening to other rappers, and flow. Record yourself, and listen to only yourself for a period of time that allows you to really zero in and notice the unique styles and projections of your voice.
Once you start to get an idea and a comfort level with your flow, then you can begin listening to rap beats and rap instrumentals that match what your hear yourself recording. This may sound like a funny or weird task, but the results will surprise you. You will now be able to pick beats that will not only fit your style, but they will make you sound even better than ever, and the right rap beats will give you that ‘platinum’ sound, almost overnight!
Once you pick a few rap instrumentals that you think will fit your style, record over them, and spend some time listening to the recordings over and over again. You will hear things that you didn’t hear before, and with this you will be able to develop and perfect your style even more. You may find that some of the beats that you though fit your style don’t, so you can change them.
For this reason, it is probably better that you start off leasing non-exclusive beats, this way, you can work on your style with the beats without spending a lot of money. So if you find that a beat doesn’t fit your style, then it’s no big deal because you didn’t have to spend thousands of dollars on it.
There are many sites popping up all over the internet that will allow you to lease non-exclusive or exclusive rap beats and rap instrumentals, so check around until you find the beats that you believe fit you, after doing the exercise that i talked about earlier.
This is a very simple technique for improvement, but if you try it out, I would bet that the results you will see will be much worth it. Try It!
