There’s not an easy way to tell you this... but just cuz you can say some words that rhyme and sound good together, it doesn’t mean that you can rap. So you probably shouldn’t perform at your daughter’s sweet 16 party, or any other party for that matter... just leave your rhyme spittin’ skills for the shower. But no worries! These new, up-and-coming rap artists know how to string their words together, put ‘em with some sick beats, and wow the crowd. Any event of yours will be off the charts with one of these 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.
