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 (like that girl ask kanye west in the slow jams song lol) Well, if you haven’t developed the “Fast Spitta Flow” here is one easy solution.
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.”

How this is gonna make you improve:
- You’ll loose your tongue a lil’ bit more and you might be able to say words faster
- You’ll improve your breathing
- You could increase your lung capacity with some large ass tongue twisters
- (Obviously) you might use some of those tongue twisters in your songs
- You’ll create tongue twisters by your own and put them in songs
- 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 the catchy thing on them, that’s why I suggest you hear some tongue twisters. Plus, it’ll help you articulate well and like I said above, you’ll be able to record in one take and won’t have to tell your engineer: “ Dude, could you please create multiple channels? I’m gonna record in parts”
That’s kinda annoying, plus it takes time and as you might know, time is money and that extra money you waste, could be invested in other things.
Every rapper should be able to do at least a quatrain fast. There is rappers who actually recommend tongue twisters if you wanna get better at spitting fast. People like Busta Rhymes, Tech N9ne, MGK, Yelawolf, Twista and many more..
Just practice them first slow, then push the pedal to the metal! You can practice with some songs too, learn the lyrics first, then sing along.
