Vox asked some of the greatest rappers ever how they made rhymes.
We featured a Vox analysis on our sister site, Cultrface, a few days ago and now they return for more. But this time it’s all about rapping. How do the finest rappers ever to grace the mic come up with their rhymes? Emcees such as Rakim, DOOM and Biggie get their rhymes studied as well as an overview of rap evolution from the 80s to now. It’s well worth spending 13 minutes to watch this.
