    "Have you ever tried searching for online resources for learning how to rap? Well I have, and let me tell you, there is not very much good information out there that is also useful and actually helps you learn. How to Rap: Fundamentals blows the others away! It's a great course at Udemy, and their teachers really know what they're talking about. I zipped through the course material, applied the concepts, and I'm rapping like a pro now! Being able to freestyle and also write some impressive rap lyrics is just another notch on my belt now, it's really slammin!"

    "There are not too many good resources for learning how to rap out on the internet, but I think I found the best one on YouTube. It's a HowCast video series called How to Rap, and the teachers are so great! They help with all kinds of things like learning how to write meaningful lyrics that don't sound just like all the churned out garbage but that really makes a statement and sounds seriously hip all at the same time. I love these videos!"

    "I'm just not sure you can learn to rap from a book. You really need to just do it repeatedly to get better. The book tries to teach these skills, and it's definitely worth the read, but you're probably better off just rapping than, reading about rapping if you want to get better!"

    "As a musician, I play a lot of shows for a lot of different crowds. Normally rock and r'n'b. But I've found over the years that it'd be helpful to have a few rap numbers under my belt. I found this guide to be a perfect resource for smoothing out my rough edges. Now I think I can "bust a rhyme" and not look like a fool. "

    "I've been listening to rap since I was a kid. I wondered if its something you are just born with the talent to do or if you can learn how to. This guy makes a lot of videos explaining that you can learn it. They are high quality and informative."

    "I wanted to learn how to write flowing, meaningful raps, so I decided to check out the Rapper's Handbook. It broke some of my favorite songs down to a technical level, and it helped me to understand some of the inspirations and skills that well-known rappers use when writing their songs.
