Présentation de l'éditeur

Examining the dynamics of hip-hop from every region and in every form—mainstream and underground, current and classic—this compelling how-to discusses everything from content and flow to rhythm and delivery in relation to the art and craft of rap. Compiled from the most extensive research on rapping to date, this first-of-its-kind guide delivers countless candid and exclusive insights from more than 100 of the most critically acclaimed artists in hip-hop—including Clipse, Cypress Hill, Nelly, Public Enemy, Remy Ma, Schoolly D, A Tribe Called Quest, and—unraveling the stories behind their art and preserving a wealth of the genre’s history through the words of the legends themselves. Exhaustively detailing the many complex aspects of rapping—such as utilizing literary tools and devices to strengthen content, battling, imagery, similes, metaphors, analogies, slang, performing both live and in the studio, word play, controversial content and punchlines, and constructing beats, singles, and freestyling—with emphasis on enunciating and breathing for unique vocal style, this remarkable book will benefit beginners and pros alike with its limitless wealth of rapping lore and insight.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book 16 juillet 2010

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
As an up and coming rapper, I didn't know what to think about the book but I wanted to improve myself and my music. This book is a must have for any new or established artist. It has a vast range of artist comments, guidance and input. It also breaks down the music theory of hip hop to instruct/guide artists and listeners to better understand the music. It's very detailed and thorough (even what may seem obvious). I'm dissecting it now and learning some new every page. I know that my music will go to the next level because of it. Buy it invest in yourself or just enjoy the artistry and science of hip hop.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow - Amazing 13 octobre 2010

I am someone who has always been moderately interested in rapping, but never really knew much about it. There are some songs and some artists that I absolutely love, but everything else I pay little attention to. I don't know very many artists names and am almost completely unaware of rap prior to about 1999.

On to the book. This book has taught me all of the intricate details that go on into imagining, creating, editing, and performing that I could have ever wanted. Every single page taught me something that I found worthwhile and often thought was incredible. Another amazing side-effect of this book is that I now have a huge appreciation for the hip hop community, and am amazed and inspired by many of the individuals. I am now aware or and appreciate tons of great artists of the past and present that I had know idea about before. I have now listened to 100's of tracks that I never would have before, and have learned how incredibly talented these artists truly are.

I highly recommend this book for anyone that is interested in the hip hop community, wants to appreciate the art form more, or who wants to learn how to rap.

And as others have mentioned, it seems that the only people that have given this book low reviews are "nobody" rappers who think that they are famous. There is nothing wrong with being a "nobody" rapper as that is what 99.99% of us will be, and it can still be fun and meaningful! Just don't pretend to be able to construct something better than this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This could have been great, and it was very lackluster. 9 octobre 2010

Look, I am a professional rapper. I make my living doing it, and have for 10 years. I personally know a lot of the people in this book. I was actually very excited to read this book, and thought the potential was endless, especially with some of the artists selected.

The problem though, is some of the answers are so atrocious and uninformative that I began to feel sorry for the author for reasons he may not even understand. Why would you put all the effort (which was clearly a lot) into a book like this, only to have passages like these?:

"A lot of MC's do research before writing their lyrics. Some talk to friends or family as a way of research." Then, the first quote from a rapper to back up this statement and explain the "science" of talking to friends and family for rap research is from 40 Cal. And this is, verbatim, the entire quote:

40 Cal: I might ask a friend about a line.

Really? That's incredible! And no, there is no elaboration on that.

The book is full of very uninspired, pointless quotes from rappers, who never state anything more than the painfully obvious. And let's be real. Do we need to quote Omar Cruz every other page? Is Omar Cruz the master rap technician all the kids aspire to be like?

I'm just saying. The author could have based an entire 10 page chapter on Big Daddy Kane's entire unique approach. Instead, there are about 10 Big Daddy Kane quotes scattered around the book, and none of them are even remotely informative.

Pass on this book unless you are a 46 year old white secretary who is doing a parody rap for her boss on his birthday. If you know a single thing about rapping, or furthemore, LISTENING to rapping, you will gain nothing from this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitive book on the subject... 18 juin 2011

This book offers great insight on various views and directions for artists beginning, artists to brush up on knowledge, and artists looking to put it all together.

Now I'm not a professional but I would assume a professional would have little reason to buy a book like this unless they have not found them selves yet. This book is not a spoon feeder. It is more of a 4 COURSE meal. You choose at your own pace what you would like to eat and the order you would like to eat it. It offers great reference from many artists. Most are underground yet the important thing is that there are many avenues on the various components of rap. These are present. It doesn't give you worksheets, it instead provides views and points of views. These points of views are then perceived by the reader according to their understanding. The level of information is great depending on the ability of the reader to comprehend what is being read.

Truthfully just about everything covered in this book was something I already knew or did, but the fact that it was neatly laid out and organized was the key. Some people have to have some peace of mind when they write which can be achieved by understanding direction and options. This book can give peace of mind to rappers that excel in writing.

I have recommended it to my friends and have seen fast improvement.
This is the definitive book on the subject.

This book is a very fascinating read for leisure for non-rappers. For people like myself who is an avid listener of rap music, this book broke down the many aspects of emceeing; vocal tone, delivery, breath control, flow, content, collaborations with other rappers and producers, etc. There are many current rappers on the scene that could use this book as a gift but would probably catch feelings and say you'r a hater (Soulja Boy, Gucci Mane, Waka Flacka Flame). This book is very well organized and edited. The content inside the book is far from dense, which makes it an easier read. This book can be understood by laymen and musicians.

Many of my favorite musicians were interviewed to get their advice and insight into the art and science of being an emcee-Royce Da 5'9", ATCQ, Shock G, E-40, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz to name a few. I cannot praise this book enough. Often I will listen to music and reference a certain topic and analyze how well a particular emcee demonstrated the lesson. When it comes to breath control for example my fave emcees who do it the best are (Treach from Naughty By Nature, KRS-1, Eminem), showmanship (Em, KRS-1, The Roots). If you love Hip-Hop and celebrate rap for its linguistic acrobatics, rhythm and poetry then get this book. As Rakim said on "Follow The Leader" 'rap is rhythm and poetry/cuts create sound effects"

One of the main keys to writing a good concept song is sticking to the actual concept and not going off on a tangent. &quote;

This is a very important point to note: a stressed syllable must be said at the same time as each of the four beats in a bar (unless there is a rest on a particular beat, something we will look at shortly). &quote;
