Today, we give you the tips short and sweet: three tips for making sure you're improving your freestyle raps everyday of the week. We suggest first choosing a different "style" of beat to freestyle to on each day. Make a schedule of it with the respective days have a specific "sub-genre" or type of beat you'll flow on that day. List it out and get to business. Secondly, we advise practicing make an "off the top chorus" in each freestyle to increase listenability and catchiness. Crowds love a song off the fly. Last, you should try to include a story in each flow to build up your ability to reference people around you and mutual friends. This is the stuff that makes fans go WILD.
On today's episode of Advanced Rap Tips, we cover a single tip on how to become a better writer by improving the quality of the content in your punchlines. I go over a simple writing formula that you can change and modify to your liking.
Top 10 Rules Of Songwriting (Songwriting Tips And Secrets) These are rules I have learned over the years that I really want to give to all of you. I have read a lot of books on songwriting tips, watched a lot of videos on songwriting tips and everything that has to do with songwriting in general. I have iTunes top 100 albums, major artists song placements and more. I have even created a full songwriting tips course where I bring you into the studio and show you everything step by step from writing the song to bringing it into your DAW and recording it. **My Full 6 Hour Songwriting Course** http://www.SmartRapper.com/WriteSongs These are rules I have learned over the years that I really want to give to all of you. 1 Try not to let your song intro go more than 15 seconds without entertaining the listener with something 2 Make sure your chorus comes in BEFORE 40 SECONDS. This allows you to pull in the listener and then also give the listener a reason to keep listening to the song to want to hear the chorus again. 3 Do NOT show anyone an unfinished song, especially before you get good 4 learn naturally what works best, you don't have to learn music theory, keys, notes... you need to learn what sounds good. Then learn that stuff later. 5 Listen to more music. Don't just stay in your box and keep listening to the same music artist, expand your music knowledge by listening to everything, even other genres. It will help you understand more music styles and sounds and this will help you be more creative and know how far you can expand yourself 6 record yourself, DONT JUST WRITE - so you can actually build your music style People send me lyrics ALL THE TIME. I really can't do anything if you just send me lyrics. It's great to practice writing but you are tring to build a music career not a writing career. You won't develop your music style, voice, delivery and everything else if you don't record your lyrics. You won't find a unique way to say thingsa dn stand out if you don't record.
If you are wondering how I ever learned anything about getting a song on the radio... My last manager was Ray De LaGarza who was a radio guy. He ran 2101 Records which was Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez and I'm sure you know both of those names and that they BOTH always get their music on the radio. Even though he IS my former manager, We are still cool and anytime I need advice I know I can call him up. He is like a cool uncle. When he was my manager I learned more about radio than anything else since that was his specialty. If you look at his Linkedin you can see he has primarily radio connections for a reason. I'm not going to go into the extra stuff like BDS spins and stuff like that in this video. I'll save that for another time. Here are the 3 primary ways you can get on the radio and start getting your music played 1) You can establish relationships with the radio DJs and they might put you on the radio. First let me know talk about a time when I was able to get played during a mid day radio show and how it happened. I did a show in Chicago at the Funky Buddah lounge as the headliner for the New Years Eve bash. At that show was DJ Dime Piece and DJ 33 1/3 who is actually Rakim's DJ. And if you don't know who Rakim is than you don't know Hip Hop. Well during the show I performed a song called 'Chicago' (I'll put the link below) DJ 33 1/3 leaned over the stage and said he liked my stuff and I was mind blown. We connected. I did anything I could to help him and he offered me amazing advice on the industry. Long story short, he knew what songs were about to be hot and what was going to play on the radio. So he told me to do a remix of the BoB 2 Chainz song Head band... he told me if I did a remix he could mix it into his mid day mix which means 10s of thousands of people would hear it. He sent me the beat... and I instantly made the remix and sent it to him. I'll put a link below to that remix and the music video I made for it. It's still a fan favorite. I tell you these stories so you can learn from my experiences but that's one way it happens. Let me dig a little deeper into how to get a song on the radio Building a relationship with a radio DJ generally tends to work BEST by dealing with radio DJs that are more accessible and more capable of playing your music such as the night DJs. When music is playing during the day it is MUCH MORE heavily regulated and the DJs can't just randomly play you. They have to follow the rules of the radio and music plays in a rotation. I won't go too deep into that. But during the night shift there is at least some leeway for someone to get played. Yes, there are less listeners at night BUT people are still listening and you STILL get your music on the radio. Let me show you guys something so you know I'm not lying here. I personally catalogged every single person in the music industry inside of my browser so I can immediately keep in contact with them. I organized them all by city and radio station. I can instantly open their Instagram or Twitter into my browser and leave comments on their posts to build a relationship. I did this by taking weeks of my time to go through each cities radio station website and get the links to all the DJs information. You can do the same thing. Don't ask for favors, just be seen and be nice for a long long time and then eventually, see what you can do to possibly help them and then see if they will give your BEST SONG a listen.
