    Double Time

    Does anyone here rap in double time? Tech has really got me into double time rap, and I was wondering some of the best ways of going about rapping fast like that.
    From my understanding, double time is twice as many sylables in a bar. Please correct me if i'm wrong. I'm also thinking devices such as alitteration seem to help create the tongue twisting effect. Any advice would be great.

    Rhyme schemes and the way words flow together.

    Double time is when you rap 2 bars to every 1 bar of music.

    Yeah, thought so. Just looking for any advice on doing it. For example, I've noticed a lot of artists rapping in double time seem to use aliteration

    yeah i deff. feel u on that. My current is comparable to the way Nas flow. One thing that I like about the fast rapping though is it's able to excite, and show more aggressive emotions. Like Tech slow flow on One Good Time fits that song, but then you have something like "Everybody Move" which suppose to get people excited, and does, and it's quite a bit faster. side note: I love the part where he's like, "Don't be so damn cool, act a fool... etc" it fits perfectly over the beats
