Storyboard

 

Now create Will Smith's story board  based on the full rap piece and the  answers you gave for the previous questions.

A storyboard is a illustrated (drawing) telling of a story or script going through and telling the different events through pictures.

Try now to create your own rap music.

 

  1. First you will need to come up with a topic.

2. This can be a short story of something which has happened in your life or the way you feel about a certain topic in the world/your life.

 

3. Next try writing combining these thoughts into a short story on a piece of paper which can be read normally and give a message.

 

4. Now you should try and re-arrange that story using words to still tell the same message but making sure that the words are rhyming.

 

Below are a few audio tracks which you can try rapping your lyrics to:

Freestyle Type Beat - "Chill"
