These challenges are designed to help you improve every aspect of your rapping, from rhyme schemes to the use of metaphors.

We’re paying attention who puts the work in. For every challenge you attempt, you gain 1 point. Once you gather enough points, you get promoted in the ranks, get a tag and some perks with that. For more information, please refer to the community constitution. Only registered users can earn a rank.


In this challenge, you’d have to:

  1. Compress a quatrain to a couplet
  2. Pimp out that couplet’s rhyme scheme

The benefit of doing this challenge is that when compressing the quatrain, you’d have to keep all the good stuff and throw away what’s less spectacular. This practice would definitely help your bullshit meter, when writing your songs. Strip away the filler, leave the essence.

Then the next part of the challenge, gets you to look at the couplet and improve it. This habit is again very important, as there is always something that could be improved after you first write your lyrics. Here, you have to make the couplet more advanced in terms of rhyme schemes, while keeping the content matter as untouched as you can. It’s a hard challenge, isn’t it hot shots? Let me show you.

Example

Quatrain:

Then turn right around in that song and tell her you love her
And put hands on her mother, who’s a spitting image of her
That’s Slim Shady, yeah baby, Slim Shady’s crazy
Shady made me, but tonight Shady’s rocka-by-baby…

Couplet draft:

While performing I see my girl she looks like her mother
Beat her up oh god Shady’s hell is going further

Rhyme scheme added:

In the intermission see my girl she reminiscing of her
mother, fuck her, Shady’s mission to suffer, is going further

Your quatrain:

Call me an animal up in the system
But who’s the animal that built this prison
Who’s the animal that invented lower living
The projects, thank god for Russell Simmons

Inspiration Beat:

Just to get it going, play that and you might find writing easier
