RP Freestyle Beat 1
Ryan Patrick Released Sep 12, 2012

Alright so I'm lovin the idea of a freestyle collab on here. Although I have NO RHYMING SKILLS WHATSOEVER!!! I've really been trying to get better at my beat making skills lately. So here's a little beat I just made for you all to flow over.

Now I have a few notes about making beats for free styling as well. 

Normally when you write a song wether it's hip hop or not you usually stick to some type of structure like Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus. But what I've noticed when watching free style battles on like 106 & Park, Freestyle Fridays and what not is that the beat that most free stylers rap to is pretty much just a consistent beat that repeats over and over for maybe like 16 bars and doesn't really change a whole lot. 

Obviously you can do whatever the hell you want but keep in mind people will be rapping off the top of their head over your beat so you might not want to put too many crazy changes in there to throw them off and also you may want to write your song to a little bit of a slower tempo and not come out with that banger at 180 BPM. 

To me there is a HUGE difference between Hip Hop and freestyle. I consider it a genre by itself. Because it's ALL about the words and your flow and not about a hook or a catchy chorus. 

So that's just my two cents.

Can't wait to see what comes out of this.
