In Born to Use Mics Nas revealed two of his top tips for rappers…
1. Study other rappers and then develop your own style
Nas: I listen to their style. I’m not trying to sound like anybody, but I’m hearing while they’re teaching — everybody’s teaching each other.
2. Learn different flows so that you can then create your own flow
Nas: There are mad different flows, and then you get your own. You see how everyone rides the beat, and then you see how you ride it. You put your whole heart into it.
