Rap lesson continues... The Official Flocabulary 10-Pronged Technique for Learning to Freestyle


Step 1. Start Easy
No need to start off rhyming “the toasty cow’s utter”
with “most o’ my flow’s butter”. No need to even
rhyme. Just forget everything else and flow. The
rhythm can be simple, the words might be 2nd grade
level, but you’re still freestyling as long as you make it
up. This was my first freestyle rap, which I spit when I
was 11 months old:
I am funny,

I like bunnies,

touch my tummy,


Step 2. Keep Flowing
You’re going to make mistakes. You’re going to
sound stupid. Make your first freestyle rap verses
your stupidest verses just to get them out of the way.
Keep flowing. Can’t think of a rhyme? Keep flowing!
Stutter over words? Keep flowing. It’s inevitable that
at some point some of your lines won’t rhyme, won’t
make sense, or that you will inadvertently diss yourself
(I knew one guy who accidentally dissed himself all the
time when we were freestyling)
, just keep flowing. If you make a mistake, do your best to incorporate your
mistake into your next lines like this:
I drive you bananas, apples and oranges,

ah.... damn, nothing rhymes with oranges,

to make it rhyme, I squeeze it into orange juice,

flow’s tighter than small undies... yours are mad


Another technique to use when you find yourself in a
bind is to whip out a quick filler. Fillers are just little
phrases that you can insert occasionally to give you
more time to think of a dope line. Every emcee has
his own fillers. For example, Eyedea says “I grab the
microphone.” Jin often says, “I’m (nasty) when I’m
freeing.” I usually say, “you know what I’m sayin’?”
Try to come up with a few fillers that you feel
comfortable using. They’ll bail you out of some
awkward pauses. As you get better, try not to rely too
heavily on your fillers.
