The top 4 rituals for rap music artists to keep redefining their genre


Rap music is a genre that has been around for over 30 years, but it's still evolving. Artists are constantly looking for new ways to redefine their sound, and they can do that by focusing on their creativity in different ways. Here are the top four rituals for rap artists to keep redefining their genre.

1. Work on lyrics to make your rhymes tight.

The lyrics are the backbone of a rap song, and it's crucial that you keep your rhymes tight. You need to make sure that every word is on point, too! To help with this, try writing your rhymes in one breath or using a metronome app so you can see exactly how long each line should be (or at least get an idea). Then go back over them again after each line has been recorded—this will help ensure that nothing gets lost in translation when they're played back during recording sessions.

In addition to making sure everything sounds great on record, feel free to experiment with different flows depending on who you're rapping for: some artists prefer shorter bars while others prefer longer ones; some might want more variety between verses while others may want more focus within those verses; etcetera... So take advantage of all these options when possible!

2. Don't turn down any opportunities to perform.

The most important thing to remember when it comes to performing is that you are not alone. You are a part of something bigger than yourself, and this can be incredibly comforting when you find yourself nervous or scared.

There will be times when an audience member gives you constructive criticism, but there will also be times when they laugh at your jokes or applaud your work ethic—and those reactions feel just as good as the ones where people tell you how amazing your performance was. The key here is staying positive in the face of adversity: if someone says something negative about your music, don't take it personally—this is what they do! If someone tells themself "I wish I could rap," then maybe their next step should be learning how to rap (or maybe writing some new lyrics). It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks; all that matters is how much fun you're having on stage!

3. Read books on rap music history and culture.

Reading books on rap music history and culture can help you stay motivated and inspired. Books are a good way to learn about the roots of rap music, which might be why they're so popular among artists like Kendrick Lamar, J Cole and Chance The Rapper.

Reading books on rap music history and culture is also a great way to stay focused on your goals because it makes them feel more tangible—and less like an intangible dream that may never become real. It's also easier than jumping back into your studio after being away for months or years at a time!

4. Take care of your body.

You are, in fact, a living human being. And that means you need to take care of your body like one.

  • Exercise regularly: The more active you are, the better you'll feel and perform on stage or in the studio (or at school). Plus it's good for your heart and lungs!

  • Eat well: Some of us are lucky enough to be gifted with an appetite for food—but even if yours doesn't work like that, try following some basic guidelines when preparing meals so that they fit into your schedule without compromising quality or healthiness too much. For example: if eating at home is difficult because there isn't enough time during work hours or school days; consider trying small meals throughout the day instead of just three large ones per day (the key here is moderation).

You can also be inspired by working on your creativity in different ways that can keep your mind fresh. You may find inspiration by listening to new music, reading books about rap music history and culture, performing and taking care of your body.

You might also listen to old albums by rap artists who had been dead for years yet still managed to make amazing hits such as Tupac Shakur or Biggie Smalls (both deceased).


If you have never tried rap music, then this is the perfect time to give it a try. You will be amazed by how much fun it is and how different it can make your life. And if you are already a rap artist, we hope that our tips for staying creative will help keep your art form fresh and exciting!
