About Booking Rappers
Hip hop and rap music originated in New York City in the 1970s, and continues to gravitate around the inner cities in urban markets on the East and West coasts of the U.S. such as New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston and other locations. There are two types of freestyle rapping: one is scripted, the other is typically referred to as freestyling, and uses improvised lyrics. Battle rapping, which is often freestyle, is the competition between two or more rappers in front of an audience, and can be seen on TV shows such as BET's 106 and Park and MTV's DFX. Find rappers and hip hop artists by selecting your city at right.
There are a few things you should do when hiring a Rapper. First, always listen to audio and watch video samples. This will ensure that you book the best for your special event. Next, be sure to get a contract. Make sure to read this carefully and watch for specifications made by the singer. Last, as with any other purchase you would make, read reviews and get references. Talk to people in the area and previous clients about the performer and get feedback.
