Step 3. Rhyme in your mind ahead of time

Here’s the biggest trick to freestyle rapping: as soon as
you know what word you’re going to end line 1 with,
your mind should start racing to find out a word you
can use at the end of line 2. Let’s say your first line is,
“I’m exhausted from doing summer reading.” As soon
as you realize that you’re going to end the line with “reading”, you should immediately think of something
that rhymes, and might possibly be related:
meaning,
weeding,
beading,
ceiling,
teething
Pick one and then try to carve the second line to lead
toward that word. Let’s say you pick “weeding”, your
next line might be:
I’m exhausted from doing summer reading,
breaking my back digging holes, painting and
weeding
If you pick “meaning,” you might say:
I’m exhausted from doing summer reading,
my eyes skim the page but always miss the meaning
The real trick of freestyling is to have your mind
constantly racing ahead of what you’re saying. This
isn’t easy, but you’ll get quicker with practice.


Step 4. Write
Writing raps will help you freestyle. When you write,
rhymes become imbedded in your head, and you’re more likely to be able to pull these rhymes off the top
of your head in a freestyle.
With that said, you should never spit a long pre-written
verse at a cipher, but you can certainly use rhyming
words and shorter phrases that you worked out before
hand. When Eminem rhymes “Ewoks, treetops, and
Reeboks” in a freestyle, you better believe he’s thought
of those rhymes before. He’s still freeing, but he’s
using rhyme words he’d already worked out.
Sitting down and writing everyday will improve your
freestyles. It will expand your memory of rhyming
words, and it will give you experience working these
words into clever lines. It’s also a good idea to write a
few multi-purpose bars that you can spit at a freestyle
in case you get really stuck. Put those lines in a “Break
Out Rhymes In Case of Emergency” box, and smash
the glass when you need help. This isn’t cheating; it’s
canny.
When you’re writing these “in case of emergency”
lines, make them strong and interesting, but not too
ridiculously amazing. Don’t do this:
I’m too good for school I can’t sit in a chair, (free)
They pulling my leg, like they pulling my hair, (free)
Hit or miss, call it quits, rippin’ hits a little bit too fast to figure
it, (written)
But I’m sippin’ it, too ridiculous the way I’m flippin’  it,(written) That’s just the way that the rap goes, (free)
Appealing to your eyeballs and your nose (free)
You don’t want you’re “emergency” rhymes to be that
obvious. Try to write rhymes that generally match
your level of freestyle, but are clever and smart....
