If you want to be a freestyle rapper, it is important for you to learn freestyle the art of rhyming. Without your rhymes, you will not be a good freestyle rapper. So the more rhymes that you have, the better freestyler you will become. So you must spend some time learning your rhymes so that they will become second nature to you. In this article, we will talk about a great exercise that you can incorporate into your practice schedule.
For this exercise, pick 5 words that aren’t related and don’t rhyme. My 5 words are going to be hat, book, beat, low, ride. Now you want to find four words that rhyme with each of your words. You can use a rhyming dictionary, or you can come up with them on your own. I personally like to come up with them on my own first to test my own rhyming ability. If I get stuck, then I will use my rhyming dictionary. You can do whatever is easiest for you. So here are my rhyming words:
Hat: bat, rat, sat, and mat
Book: look, took, cook, and rook
Beat: heat, treat, eat, and meat
Low: mow, tow, bow, and row
Ride: hide, tide, guide, and fried
Now you want to take these words and freestyle for one minute. Use each of these rhymes. What you are doing as you are practicing is memorizing these rhyming words. The more you practice using these words, the more they will become part of your repertoire. You will fine that you don’t have to think about them. They will naturally become part of your rhyming vocabulary.
It is a good idea to practice this exercise several times a day. Each time that you practice you want to add 5 new words. At the end of each day, if you practice 5 or 6 times a day, you are adding a lot of rhyming words to your vocabulary.
Just remember that as you are adding these words, they are words that you know, and all that you are doing is adding them to your rhyming vocabulary. This is just an exercise that will help you develop the art of rhyming within your own rhyming arsenal, helping you to become a professional freestyle rapper.
