Contrast is the state of being strikingly different from something else in a juxtaposition or close association. When writing your raps, always try creating a possible contrast of what it is you are saying. You need to know the opposing fact or similar fact of what you are talking about.
Better still you could create a contrast in the music itself, for example, let the beat be a sad one, and your rap be a happy one. You can also create a contrast using rich and poor in the rap song. A rapper can also make a contrast with the below listed phrases:
– It’s been 5 years and no one has truly lived up to Kendrick Lamar’s” control verse yet”
– Now to the one that S-P-E-L-L out T-H-E M-E-A-N-I-N-G.
– I’m the L.I.L to the K.I.M and not B.I.G., R.I.P baby.
– You n****s want wordplay, I’m back bird play/first of the month, yeah, he called that bird day (look at e’m fly).
