  1. What is a rap challenge?
  2. Many of us have witnessed some of our favorite rappers go head to head in a rap challenge/battle or even have challenged other rappers to go up against them, but what exactly is a rap challenge? A rap challenge is when another individual challenges you to input a word that is not technically used very often into a rap and have it make sense, this is the difficult part. Not only adding difficult words is a the challenge, but making the rap rhyme with that certain word which is chosen. If you want to be challenged it is a great idea to reach out to others or even send out tweets in order to get feedback from individuals and to find out what words they wish to challenge you with. Don't neglect social media and put it into good use to meet others and take them up for their challenge. There are shows that you might have heard about like Wild 'n Out which is based upon bringing well known rappers onto the show and conducting a rap battle against another group in font of an audience. The way in finding out which group won, the battle is ultimately based on the audiences reaction to the battle.
  3. In the video presented above Matteo Iadonisi breaks down for you what exactly is a rap challenge and how does he go about accepting a challenge. I pulled a video out of his personal YouTube channel using the word taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu, which is actually a word that his YouTube followers challenged him to. This means he had to create an original rap song and use this rather long difficult word in the rap. I also pulled other clips off his channel to show you how he conducts his rap music in his own closet while setting his laptop in front of him. Along with his headquarter video, words that rhymes with cumberbatch, and another challenging word he had to incorporate it into his rap song llanfairpwllgwyngllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

  5. Kevin Krust is a 19 year old writer and a YouTuber that also produces many rap songs. When asked what is a rap challenge to him he said that challenge raps involve taking a basic concept like, complicated words or challenging rhyme schemes and stretching that to the extreme for a three to four minute song. He also said that it's difficult because unlike most rap music, the challenge raps push the limit of the English language to it's extremes and open up the mind to concepts and ideas you don't see everyday in music. If you are a person that is into rap this is a great way to test your skills and challenge yourself as an artist.
