Learning how to rap is a very personal experience. Just like any artist we rap about the things that happen in our own world, our own little corner of the globe. Don’t think that just because you live in the suburbs and drive a Honda that your story is any less compelling than someone who grew up on the streets of New York or Chicago. We are all unique and have unique stories to tell. Rap is a powerful medium to tell these stories, communicate ideas and express emotions.

This will be mostly for the beginners because getting started is always the most difficult part. That being said, let’s take our first steps on this journey.
