    One thought on “How to Rap 2: Advanced Flow and Delivery Techniques”

    1. There are now plenty of online and literary resources analyzing rap music. These all seem primarily focused on content: metaphors, references, general subject matter, and the like. Some musical elements, however, don't particularly translate well to the written page/link-baiting website, namely delivery and flow and how those words actually sound. Paul Edwards' sequel to his 2009 book How to Rap attempts to fill this gap and does quite an admirable job. Similar to the first installment of the se [...]

    2. This was just as helpful as the first book, providing insight into the many aspects of rap. The difference between this book and the last one, however, is that this is much more specific- it'll focus a lot more on the delivery of vocals as well as rhythm and rudiments. Basically, if it hasn't been covered in the first book, it'll be mentioned somewhere in here.The roster of hip hop artists interviewed for this book was as impressive as the first book, and they collectively provided a wonderfully [...]

    3. Very, very detailed, it covers flow and delivery extensively.It's a natural progression from the first book, and it focuses on specific techniques a lot more, whereas the first book had more behind-the-scenes stories.If you want to know how to come up with crazy rhythms and rhymes, this is the book to get, or if you just want to know how your favorite MCs do it, this will tell you why the complex guys sound so complex.

    4. Good shitI recommend reading the first book before you get to this one. Good read worth the purchase yada yada yada.

    5. This was a tough one to rate. I could have gone to 3 stars without feeling too queasy, but I'm just not sure. Especially when, at current standing, HTR2 has a higher GR score than the original HTR (which I really enjoyed).I have a lot of problems with this book. Not least of all is it feels like an attempt to legitimize rap, something I feel like I've written about elsewhere on GR. I hate that bullshit. Trying to legitimize rap with all this bullshit. This is a theme that runs all the way throug [...]

    6. Whereas the first How to Rap is truly essential, this sequel is for the already initiated, and maybe not all of them. I'd definitely recommend it for people who actually rap, who want to get better at it and who want to know everything there is to know about it -- which you'd think they all would, but obviously many of them don't. I'm not sure if it would be as useful for the person who's just a fan of rap music, or someone who's trying to learn more about rap music, for whatever reason, as I th [...]

    7. A great read for any rap nerds out there who want to get down to the nitty gritty technical aspects of being an emcee. Much like the first volume, the book reads like a talking head documentary, with a wide range of emcees giving insight into how they put their rhymes together.
