Learn Rhymes.

Yoga takes you into the present moment. The only place where life exists.

Speaking of rhymes, a first tip is to not add lines just because they rhyme, there are various types of rhymes not only those called: “kissed rhymes”. Be careful not be repetitive, a good basic study of all the existing rhyming structures will be very useful and you will find it for your whole life.

Give Personality to Your Lyrics and Make a Meticulous Selection.

Yoga takes you into the present moment. The only place where life exists.

The text that you will perform is the most important action that an artist does. So you have to study it to perfection, improve it by replacing words, changing song metrics and joints. It doesn’t have to be superficial, even if it’s a fun and dirty freestyle … Your goal is for your listeners to remain interested, entertained or whatever your intent is.

I go on tour and it hurts / I miss the days when this was fun but now it turned into work

A Habit That Will Always Help You Before You Start Writing.

Yoga takes you into the present moment. The only place where life exists.

This is a very important point that you will not find anywhere else, hear me well!

Get a notebook (or if you prefer you can do everything from a dedicated app on your phone), every time before you have to write some lyrics, write down your goals for that song (the message you want to send).

Then, structure the approach that you want hearing the beat, for example: INTRO “leave blank”VERSE “aggressive”PRECHORUS “a sort of direct speak”CHORUS “epic”BRIDGE “calm” – …

I came, I saw

I came, I saw

I praise the Lord, then break the law

I take what’s mine, then take some more

It rains, it pours, it rains, it pours

To help you find a flow to use (trying not to copy), loop the beat and hum over it. You don’t have to use words right away. At first I recommend you only to look for a vocal sound to find a vocal melody, pauses and a rhythm for the lyrics that you will write.

Find Inspiration From Everyday Life.

Yoga takes you into the present moment. The only place where life exists.

Have inspiration to make music it’s one of the hardest step that you will find on “your road”. It may happen that as much one is determined to seek inspiration the more this one cannot find it.

You need to have the right mentality to do things better than other artists, because there is a lot of competition. So, I advise you to learn and elevate your thinking of everyday’s things by reading or watching videos / films dedicated to the elevation of your mentality, also through philosophical stories.

This makes a solid difference, it will be useful in your life as well and I know that this can be very boring; but if music is more than just a passion for you, I really think you have to.

“Twenty years later, them same strangers you make ‘em meet again

Inside recording studios where they reapin’ their benefits

Then you start remindin’ them about that chicken incident

Whoever thought the greatest rapper would be from coincidence?”
