    It also has to do with flow and delivery based on the beat you are spitting to. Does it call for a laid back slow flow or a fast paced one. Do what the track is asking for. Do you know how to count bars and stay in the pocket with your vocals?

    It takes alot. You're gonna go thru phases. You have to concentrate on making your flow better and better. Parts of that include timing, impact, velocity/vocal volume, lyrical content and things like that... it's a process.

    Metaphors are really cool when you put them in rap.

    I couldn't agree more. You have to come up with your own flow and style of rapping. It is very much a process because you have to find yourself. Otherwise you will just keep trying to sound like somebody your not. Be yourself and keep practicing.

    yeah it can take years just to stumble upon the right style that suits your voice. practice, practice, and some more! I might add throwing in that finding someone that's very like minded to you to bounce idea's back and forth with is always nice.
