  • Trust me, it is not easy

    Not only do you need natural talent, but you need to practice and practice and practice to get it to the level of some of the best. It takes plenty of talent, and that is proven because so few people can do it well. Not to mention, writing the song takes plenty of talent as well.

  • Some types of rap do.

    Some rap songs such as Lose Yourself by Eminem are geniusly written, no ordinary person could write lyrics that rhyme and flow so perfectly and make sense. It also requires talent to speak very fast without stuttering or messing up, which many rap artists do. I do agree, however, that some rap songs could have been written and performed by just about any one and require no special talent.

  • Of course it does

    To make clever, insulting, funny rhymes while matching it to a beat takes a lot of hard work, talent and time sitting down in the studio writing down raps. So to you guys saying it takes no talent, try and do it and see how many albums you sell. Clearly singing takes more talent but you can't take that away from rapping

  • Insulting poetry takes talent

    If you think that poetry or writing requires talent then so does rap. You need to have a smart mind to quickly come up with rhymes. Although at times, it almost sounds like a crime because of such profanity and hate speech. Professional raps take a long time to teach, let alone reach. Some may argue that it is a leech to intelligence although to the rap I take vengeance to restore their poetic nature.

    Im sorry ill stop

  • Rap takes talent.

    I think rap takes talent. Rap is a form of art. It definitely takes talent to freestyle and write lyrics. You have to do it fast. You also have to control your breathing. Rapping is just like rhyming. Many rappers double as singers (Drake, Bryson Tiller, etc.) and singing is considered a talent.

  • Raping definitely takes not only talent but natural talent.

    Writing a good rap over a period of time is definitely easy but if you want to actually get good at rapping it takes tons of work, effort, motivation, and natural talent; Free styling especially. I have worked for a year on free styling every single day and now I can finally freestyle as long as I want to but thats not what its all about. Raping is an art form and a way of expressing yourself through scrupulous words. Not just through a soft guitar strum and a few lyrics. Raping is a tedious art and every single word you say counts and needs to mean something to you. Most people can't even get one 100th of that while writing the lyrics down.

  • Exceptions to Rule

    I almost said no, but there are too many exceptions to the rule. Although my typical genres are rock and metal. Some rappers have little to no talent however (*ahem* Lil Wayne, T-Pain, and others). There are, believe it or not some rappers that I enjoy listening to like Eminem.

  • Of course it does

    If you want to be a good and unique rapper, you must think of new, unique and powerful lyrics, and using the technology and software to make rap in itself is quite complicated, and I don't know what some of you dudes are saying bout no use of instruments, #YouCanUseInstrumentsInRap

  • Yes it does, should this even be asked.

    Almost every rapper like Drake, Rick Ross ans Lil Wayne sounded weak as fuck but throughout the years they've been rapping and their voices have changed for the better. You need at least to be born with something to start you off like a decent voice you can shape, construct and change to fit rap.

  • It does not take as much talent as singing.

    Any one can say words to a computerized beat. A redneck from Alabama with a few tries could successfully rap. Speed raping and raping on the spot does take some talent the latter takes more.
    Singing takes talent not every one can sing opera. Not everyone has a singing voice like Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Justin timberlake, or usher.

  • No musical talent.

    You don't need to know how to sing or play an instrument so it does not require any musical talent. If it reflects no musical talent, why do people call it music?
    The closest that they have for music is hacked up bits from the word of other artists played in the background and a drum machine. Sorry but playing other peoples work or hitting (start) on a drum machine does not take musical talent.
    Rap is basically poetry that is spoken in time with a beat. Basically that would make it a modern spin on what was called beatnik poetry back in the 50's and 60's where some guy wearing sunglasses indoors would say their poem in time to someone playing a bongo to a crowd with such retarded emotions that instead of clapping after, they would just snap their fingers.
    Rap is poetry, at best. It is not music as it does not require any musical talent.

  • No it doesn't take talent to rap.

    You can simple say words to a beat and your rapping. But if the question was " Does it take talent to rap well?" I would answer differently. Sure anyone can rap but not everyone can do it well. Same for singing. Anyone can sing. You can do it now. But not everyone can sing well.

  • Cheese is bad.

    Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad. Cheese is bad.

  • Cheese is good

    Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best. Cheese is the best.

  • No it doesnt

    Because you dont need to harmonize your voice to the music. And i think music is all about harmonization not only the lyrics. Because you dont need to harmonize your voice to the music. And i think music is all about harmonization not only the lyrics. MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT HARMONIZATION

  • Not natural talent.

    With a little practice anyone can learn to rap. You need no natural talent to rap as long, hell even if you have a speech problem no one will notice. Schools that teach rap have been around for years, they call them auctioneer schools. No talent needed, old backwoods farmers have been doing it for hundreds of years.

  • Its too easy

    Seriously all it is is talking to a computerized beat. They don't sing or play real instruments, & all it's about is drugs, guns, money & hoes. Seriously it's not even poetry. It's cRap. And all the Rappers & their listeners are ignorant thugs, who sag their pants so their butts show, & live off welfare.

  • Not really though...

    Think about this. If you listen to rap songs, memorize lyrics , and sing them by yourself alone will make you good at rapping. When you are use to it, then brain will be able to produce your own tune by your own.
    Freestyle rapping can be difficult but it is still possible. =))
