Make Hip Hop Beats Work For You And Become A Unique Rap Artist
The only way to make hip hop beats work for you is to spend the time to learn how you work with hip hop beats. What this means is that so many people just rap over beats based on what they like that they miss the point of actually learning which beats and styles of hip hop beats that compliment their styles the best. But this is often much more difficult a thing to learn how to do than it is to talk about doing. The problem starts because itís far too easy just to spit a freestyle and forget about the actual art of creating music out of the convergence of your flow and the hip hop beat of your choice.
This is where the real skill and time spent learning the ins and outs of the game come in. While you may have spent years perfecting your freestyle, but if you havenít spent almost as much time both learning how to create music and learning the various styles of hip hop beat and how your flow interacts with them, then youíre still going to be in the amateur category. Itís like anything else. Most people like to only specialize in what theyíre good at and ignore the other aspects as if they donít matter to them.
In this way, young rappers may think to themselves that they donít have to spend any real time putting songs together or learning the ins and outs of the various hip hop beat genre, because eventually a producer or someone like that will recognize their talent and sign them. Once they are signed they wonít have to worry about those things because the producer will know how to do the work that they themselves donít know how to do.
From one perspective this is true, and you may just get signed by someone based on the strength of your raw skills alone. This person may or may not know how to handle your talent and create music to rap beats, but leaving that alone for now, if youíve spent anytime at all trying to get your work heard and have had trouble then you are doing yourself a disservice by not putting in the work and learning how to handle your own talent. It still may be true that a producer or someone like that will sign you strictly based on your skills, but if youíre really serious about getting on as a rapper, and no one is there to sign you right now, then why waste any more time in not learning to become your own best producer.
