What does 'g' mean in rap?
I know it means "gangsta" but can it also be referring to money? Cause tupac said ""I made a 'g' today" But you made it in a sleazy way" in Changes. Im assuming he's talking about money, but maybe not.
In what ways does a dj need to know math?
Unfortunately everyone who has answered so far is wrong or is being factitious. DJ's need to know math to calculate BPM (Beats Per Minute), to calculate the difference in speed between two songs and the percentage that one needs to be changed to match the other for mixing, and to count out the structure of a piece of music. Examples: When calculating the BPM: If you have a song that is say 142 BPM, counting to 142 in a minute is challenging, but f you can count the beats for ten seconds and multiply by 6 it's a lot easier. Obviously there is an element of estimation and there is always a margin for error. When mixing: Most DJ's mix by ear but it can be helpful when learning to be able to calculate the difference between a 128 BPM and 130 BPM track and adjust accordingly until your ears are trained. (Most record players and CD players designed for DJ's have a "pitch slider" that increases and decreases the speed of the playing track by usually up to 8% in either direction. Knowing how big of an adjustment is needed is what I am talking about) Musical Structure: This is purely counting but it's still very basic math, music is broken up into beats bars and phrases; Being able to count the beats, bars, and phrases is essential to good DJing. It could also be argued that math is used to calculate how a pitch adjustment is going to affect the key of a song.

How can one become a good rapper?
Multiple things can make a good rapper.Some rappers have a voice that draws you in from the start (ex. Method Man, Je’kob). This isn’t really something you can control very much, but it gives an advantage to those that have a great voice.Relatability. If you feel a connection with a rapper’s lyrics, then you’ll want to keep listening to them. Likewise, if you’re the rapper and you’re looking to engage or impact your audience, you need to be able to relate to them.Storytelling. Rap is a great tool for telling stories and being able to create vivid imagery in your music is a great skill to have (see: GBKW by Murs).Versatility. I mean more than one thing by this. If you’re exclusively a punchline rapper, people will eventually get bored of you. If you exclusively storytell, then people will eventually get bored of you. If you only make heartfelt music, people will eventually get bored of you (in my own personal experience, I loved NF’s first two albums, but by Perception, he was rehashing the same 3 or 4 messages in most of his music and it got old to me; on the other hand, that album charted very well).Versatility also means being able to switch up how you rap. If you rap in the same cadence at the same tempo in every single one of your songs, people will get bored fast. On KB’s newest album, Today We Rebel, he demonstrated this very well. He switched up styles, flow, cadence, etc. throughout the album, and sometimes even multiple times within a song!Have something to say. Rappers like Flo Rida never have an actual message, and that’s why they’re weak artists. You need to be able to convey a message, whatever you decide that message is (social issues, personal issues, love, substance abuse, sex, etc.)Clever lyrics. Being able to write memorable punchlines, double entendres, and similes and metaphors will draw people in and make people remember your music.You don’t have to be a master at all of these things to be a good rapper, but you should have at least a few of these points to be considered good, in my opinion.
My 8th grade math teacher asked us to make a rap...?
lol, You're talking about PEMDAS, right? Parenthesis, exponents, multiplication/ devision, addition/ subtraction? That's the order we do math problems in. So, let's make something up here... lets see... (I'm making this up as I go) Yo, yo parenthesis goes first, A curve and a curve. But this is only the first verse. Then there's exponents, Goin' atop like light bulbs. You need two numbers for exponents to solve. Multiplication and division comes next in line. You need multiplication to divide by. Dot dot line, three shapes, for the division sign. And last but not least is addition and subtraction, Just remember, these are left, You can take no other course of action, yo. Just remember PEMDAS!! Parenthesis, exponents, Mult and div, add and sub, Just look at the above. Peace out!
