Hey guys, we’re bringing back something original to the Rapping Manual community-the rap challenges. 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:

Devil I rebuke you for what I go through
And trying make me do what I used to
But all that stops right here
As long as the Lords in my life I will have no fear

Inspiration Beat:

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

    I’m not too sure what a couplet is, I assume it’s 32 beats, 2 bars or around that area. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    This was posted like 3 days ago, I’m a little late so I’ll throw down 3 dif “couplets” if that’s okay.

    1. Satan now I’m breathing, you had your chance, I’m done.
    Gods light is within me, you had your chance, I’m gone.

    2.
    Yeah I’m alive, I survived Satans ride.
    I see the light and it is god who shines. He’ll Forever shine inside my mind.

    3. All fears are now gone said god, stand straight, look forward and run.
    Go on, Lucifer is done. Go on, said the supreme one.

    Please judge and show me the way ๐Ÿ˜

    Writing this feels like going against every instinct I have lol normally when people talk about God I say “hail Satan”, because I despise Christianity.

    Notice the man holding is a child of the most high
    And walks with no fear.

        I write more based on how I flow and kinda “squeeze” words in with my cadence. Plus I “try” and rhyme not only by end words but internals and even like, similar sounds. I’m by no means an extra (which is why I am here) but here’s the “rhyme breakdwon”

        See this sign that says it all Stops here? (this line sets up the rest of the rhyming that is done)
        Notice the man holding is a child of the most high (they i say it, Notice will rhyme will Holding while Child and High will rhyme back to Sign and most kind of plays into the rhyme “sound” of notice and holding)
        And walks with no fear. (this rhymes back to Stops Here and closes out the whole phrase for me)

        Again, this is just how I rhyme. I can’t say it has any technical value or even validity. hope that helped. it sure helped me understand my flow a little better ๐Ÿ™‚

          Ye man I get it I have a similar style I’m very flow based and my rhymes are like sound patterns where I match the vowel sounds heavily
