TCP 038 - Freestyle Rap, With Vincent Van Pro
April 29, 2018•22 min
While he may have “stuttered” his initial freestyles years ago, lifelong word aficionado Vincent Van Pro now spits rhymes with the best of them. He and Michelle dig into his process and the way he groups his rhymes bar by bar rather than focusing on specific words. He references writing as “WD-40 for his mind,” a tool he uses to provoke his vocabulary and keep his senses sharp. Michelle and Vincent discuss the importance momentum plays in freestyling, how Vincent recovers after a blunder, and the key difference between freestyle and traditional rapping.
