In this rubric, we’ll compete against each other, by comparing our wittiness.

Who can create the best punchline?

This will showcase your ability to compress a phrase into a bar, choose your wording, use metaphors and whatever you can think of. It’s about matching creativity.

The Rules

1. You’ll be provided with a sentence. A short phrase, expressing a certain point of view.

2. Your job is to think of the most clever way to say the given phrase and then create a couplet around it.

Example

1. Instrumental to Use

2. Phrase to Work With

[quote]I’ll destroy you.[/quote]

3. Couplet

Let my word and my corporation send you shivers
Ain’t no peace for me, til I dam your money rivers

Why Should You Try This?

This is a great way to practice your punchlines and your abilities to play with words, metaphors and double meanings. Assets, such as these, are invaluable to the modern rapper.

Every attempt would be reviewed, so you’ll be able to get constructive feedback on your bars, accompanied by helpful guidance for improving your work.

Also, we are going to rate the best couplet. The person, who receives the biggest number of votes in a single week, will have the opportunity to showcase his song, in front of our readers and facebook fans.

    I was sent to end your careers cause you did nothing for me. All I was tryna do was amaze

    ^that one really is corny, the first line was instant, but I was trying to go after the 3 homophones (a maize, a maze, amaze) but at the cost of creating an unclear rhyme scheme. Not bad, but not good either

    Haha RappingManual, love the site it's quite helpful for sure. I can come up with one and two bangers all day, but my problem seems to be finding a way to put my thoughts together into songs. It's hard sometimes trying figure out what you actually want to write a track about.

    Right now, when I'm in my little set up I'm always spiting freestyles without any instrumentals. Its always me going for rhyme after rhyme and the individual lines make sense but there is no overall moral to the story. I exercise my skills everyday. I can pull off a number of other rappers voices quite well, and a few female pop artists I can harmonize with so good that it's actually kind of embarrassing. And I have this 80 page notebook that I've been cooking up all my punchlines in.

    Oh and here's a tip to others who read this… Sometimes if you're stuck on what to write next in a song, take your favorite artist download a couple of their audio files, get on a program such as audacity, load one of your choice songs, and apply the reverse effect, and play it, it'll sound creepy as fuck, but you can use it to your advantage and take out things that may be of interest to you…. like for this instance I took eminem's rap god.. 10 seconds in I hear the word almost clear as day "Ewok", about 3 seconds after I hear some garbled words that I made out to be "Starwars series" or "Darwins theory." So with that I wrote not only 1, but 3 pretty decent lines out of the first 15 seconds. I got about 3/4 a page of usable material from that song which I can now craft into my own songs how ever I please. All it took was 6 minutes of my time, everything that sparked even the smallest bit of interest to me. Than just looked at all the words I writ down and gave them life.

      Ever since I saw a video of Stairway to Heaven on youtube in reverse, I’ve been looking into things like that a lot more so I can have my imagination run wild, not knowing what I will hear.
