This is the question most people have before they try this type of hip hop music. It’s probably a good one to ask as a start. It can help you get to the heart of the question if you understand the 4 bars of rap. 4 bars is a group of 3-4 words divided into 2-4 phrases that create an overarching rhythm. Most people who try it know these four bars. Some may try them out right away and see how that feels. The first 4 bars are the most basic that are easy to understand. But this may not be what you want your music to sound like. There are many other 5-bar patterns that may be more suitable depending on how well you can mix them up.

2. Mixing up the rhythm
Rap is often defined or defined by the beat of the music. In the first 4 bars, there are 4 beats that are used to build up the rhythm. These 4 beats are a 4/4 beat, 4/4 quarter beat, 4/4 triple beat, and 4/4 fifth beat. These 4 beats are often called “the 4ths” (although they really are the 4 bars of a 4/4 beat
