A Rapper Legend

By Natalie, 826 Valencia

A recipe for how to create a legendary rapper.


Grades 1–6




  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 2 hours of practice
  • 4 tablespoons of sound effects
  • A handful of backup singers
  • 1 stage
  • 1 microphone
  • 2 gallons of speed
  • 7 cups of lyrics



In order to make a rapper legend, mix the lyrics with speed. That’s what you call a rapper. It’s important to practice, to get your word speed up. You need to end up at the right level. Then sprinkle in a microphone, because you’ll need it in the future. That way people can hear you from ten miles away, and they can be backup singers and fans. Backup singers make the show look cool. They add sparkle to your show, just like me. Then dip the stage and get the crowd going crazy. The stage is for the backup singers to dance, and it will also hold the microphone. A stage is important because it makes you look swag, and if you want, you can even go crowd-surfing. A pinch of practice makes you a better rapper. It’s important because you will need it to get a rap career.
