Features of this vocal direction

In rap, unlike other genres of modern music, it is important to pronounce the words clearly and loudly. Most often, the rapper sings about any problems of people, and of society itself as a whole. (ads1)
Note: in rap it is necessary not only to hit the notes, but also to feel the rhythm, bass, pauses, beats. If you do not follow these rules, you will get a dry text. 

 History of occurrence, where it is applied

The first rapper compositions appeared in the United States of America in the South Bronx, where immigrants from Africa and Latin America lived. 

It is known that such a luxury as "discotheques" was available to financially wealthy residents of the United States. In those early years, there was racial discrimination, so black people could not attend such entertainment venues. A little later, African Americans began to arrange their own discos, which gained unknown popularity.

The first DJ was Kool Gerk. The presenter, who warmed up the crowd and announced the beginning of the composition, was of great importance at entertainment events. It was in discotheques in the South Bronx that "rap" was first read.  



With the mixing of the genres of "pop" and "rap", a new musical direction appeared - hip-hop. After the appearance of recitative performance of songs, people began to create even more interesting genres of music. In hip-hop, a section of the text is read quickly, after which there are small pauses called "breaks" in which rappers show off their dancing skills.   Another direction was rap-rock, in which people read the lyrics of the song under the forms of alternative music. 
Fun fact: Rap rock has three sub-genres: funk metal, rapcore, and rap metal. 
Popular artists:
  1. MC Hammer. He, along with the team, recorded the track in unusual conditions - in a mobile studio. The song "U Can't Touch This" gained unheard of popularity in the 90s.

Clarity of diction. In the rap genre, the text of the song is read to the beat and fast music, so the words should sound as loud and clear as possible. The better the performer “reads” the lyrics of the song, the cooler the composition sounds. To develop this skill, you need to strive daily or 5 times a week for 20-30 minutes a day to read the lyrics at the maximum speed of reading, while the person must have a clear and articulate speech.  Sound volume. Fans like it when the music "stuns" them. In addition, if the performer raps quietly, then no one will hear his voice. For this reason, it is necessary to pronounce the words of the song out loud. (ads1)

chants

  1. First you need to sing the lowest note as much as possible. You can stretch the letter "A" or "E" in a low voice. Then you need to pronounce "I" and "U". Five minutes after training, the voice will become richer.


2. You can stretch the notes from "C" to "C", as they do in music schools. They start chanting from the lowest note to the highest note, then everything is done the same, only exactly the opposite. Repeated chanting begins from the highest to the lowest note.

3. You can also perform the “motor” exercise with your lips, which involves all sound registers. The sound resembles the sound of a combination of letters "bbbrrr".

More chants and exercises can be mastered in the lessons in the vocal studio . Classes in a specialized center will allow adults, teenagers and children to quickly, effectively and easily learn to sing rap.
