A “Rap Up” is a custom-written rap summary of an event, composed during the proceedings and performed as the summarizing conclusion, with no rehearsal or revision. It’s the ultimate in-the-moment crowd-pleaser since the jokes and references speak directly to the audience’s recent collective experience, name-checking each of the speakers and capturing the event’s central messages, tailored and performed exclusively for your attendees.. The format can be adapted to any event.
A custom rap song and video captures your key themes, story, idea, or value proposition, produced in advance and premiered at your event. Written in collaboration with the client or commissioning organization, we go through multiple drafts to make sure and get the message right. Custom Raps can either be “no frills”, performed once live or to camera, or can be produced as studio tracks released on Spotify and all streaming music services, with a full accompanying music video.
Freestyle Rap is one of the great spontaneous art forms, a fully improvised flow of lyrics that adapts to circumstances in real time, cogent, funny, and on-beat. In a Freestyle Set, the audience feeds the rapper ideas, words, and prompts, providing fuel for the lyrical fire. Make it about anything you want, the more challenging the topic, the funnier the result!
Partially written and partially improvised, a “Freestyle Track” elevates improvisation by putting it into a new and thought-provoking frame, simultaneously a virtuoso performance and a model of innovation and lateral thinking. Freestyle Tracks integrate themes from your event and audience suggestions, all contained within a wider composition that drives home a message about how to shake things up.
