Rapping is just like musical notation, only instead of notes its syllables. There is a rhythm to rapping. Inside it you will find the same things you find in a wrote sheet: triplets, rests, shuffles, etc. It just happens to be words.Oddly enough I’m doing Santeria too. That one seems easier for me for some reason - probably because there’s no rapping involved. Maybe I can’t get my head around rapping - that’s always something somebody else would do
I cant rap at all. But I can rap along (horribly) to something someone else wrote because it does follow musical "rules". Just keep listening to the song, you will get it.
