Tips On How to Rap Fast


Flow is one of the main things in rapping and sometimes the beat asks you to change the pattern you’ve been using through the song. Sometimes you need to go a little bit faster. Well, if you haven’t developed the “Fast Spitta Flow” here is one easy solution.


Tongue twisters

Here’s a web page full of tongue twisters. Try it, it’s fun! Some of them are nearly impossible to say. For example:

“Something in a thirty-acre thermal thicket of thorns and thistles thumped and thundered threatening the three-D thoughts of Matthew the thug – although, theatrically, it was only the thirteen-thousand thistles and thorns through the underneath of his thigh that the thirty year old thug thought of that morning.”

Got your tongue in a knot? Join the club!

How Will This Improve Your Flow:

  • You’ll loosen up your tongue more and this will allow you to say words faster
  • You’ll improve your breathing
  • You could increase your lung capacity with some long tongue twisters
  • You might use a variation of those tongue twisters in your songs
  • You can get ideas for your own tongue twister
  • You’ll be able to record in just one take-without making any mistakes

Have you noticed those slow songs and then they “run” in some parts? That’s a catchy feature, so I suggest you hear some tongue twisters and think of innovative ways of utilizing them. Plus, it’ll help you articulate well and like I said above, you’ll be able to record in one take without the need for the dreaded multi-channel recording.

Every rapper should be able to do at least a quatrain in a faster pace.

There are rappers, like Busta Rhymes, Tech N9ne, MGK, Yelawolf and Twista, who actually recommend tongue twisters for those who want to get better at rapping fast.

Just practice them first in a slower pace, then push the pedal to the metal! You can practice with some chopper flow songs too, learn the lyrics first, then sing along.

    Another great way to learn to chop is by studying marching band drumming patterns. Usually instead of ridingthe bass of a song the chopper follows the snare

      Glad some one else noticed this too. if you’re good enough at riding a beat, you can chop to the snare and then hit your revs on the bass counts. Gives the change if flow more weight and makes that chopper flow sound extra heavy

      Chopper flow is a specific type of flow, Tech N9ne being the the best example. Imagine a big chopper motorcycle being revved and shifting gears. Now picture this same sound as you listen to Tech. See how he will “spittawholelotta reallllllly fastsyllablesandwhenrapsandyoucan heeeear itwithinhisflow”

      That whole spit quick then drag one word out like a chopper revvung up. That’s how many if techs sings flow. And there you have the chopper flow.

    I have a very choppy sporadic flow. Yes it takes a little talent to do this. But practice makes perfect, and I’m no where near perfect. Certain rhyme schemes make your bars seem faster. Like
    “I’ma rippin n stickin it,
    like I’m stickin a clip in it.”
    Match syllables and if you want to write a fast part, chop your words and alternate the rhyme scheme.

    triple time- you are mashing(or packing) syllables together 3 syllables at a time in a bar while flowing

    musically when you’re sounding out triplet notes is [1-la-li, 2-la-li, 3-la-li, 4-la-li] to a beat, it gets harder the faster the tempo of the song though.

    so you have to fit the correct words to the correct placement or else its not going to work

    Its not really hard to spit fast, the only thing that’s complicated is how to write it out and count the syllables needed to speed up the rhythm of the words. like most 3 syllable words are easier to use for the triple time rapping than others and so on.
