Not long ago there was this discussion about a kid who posted a song of his. So that inspired me to look out for something and I’ve figured it out. This is something all of us do, and it’s not always bad, but for writing a song that’s supposed to be heard by public – it’s a bit frustrating.

So, here’s the deal – we are all lyricists and poets, but when it comes to writing raps, we want to put special effort in technicality and we write complex bars, using complex words, because we want it to sound better. But the thing is – most people don’t have our vocabulary and sense of metaphors, and when we use complex words and metaphors – they simply don’t get the message!

You will get a complex couplet, which meaning you must first figure out, and find out what makes it complex and then transform it in a more clear and simple manner.


Example bar:

Been gazing at thrills, then rushing my quill ,
Cuz time urging, here I come – Nottingham Lark Hill,

Do you have any idea what this means? No? You must first google search “Nottingham Lark Hill”… That’s where you start your research!

    I stare at this pen / I stare at this wall
    Finances and freedom
    That’s the storm after I calm
