The Yo-Yo Rap Thread!


#1

In this thread I’m going to write yoyo raps every once in a while. I’ve written two already, and Hendy said he even wanted to rap them on a beat and record.

Also, write your best yoyo rap here!

I like yoyos, they are cool, people who play with them are big tools.

Always gotta be positive in raps!

Third verse to “Hold Your Throws Up!” by TotalArtist. 
Copyright, 2012

I might compete someday, hope to get the top 5,
I’ll throw a sweet suicide, maybe mach 5,
Nothing like doing some great tricks,
Throw a plastic whip quick, even the Matrix,
Just like my skills when I rhyme over rap beats,
Around the world two times into my trapeze,
Eli Hops boing e boing gotta love it,
Do ripcord maybe a drop in the bucket,
bind, rewind, throw that trapeze from behind,
In time, on a dime, top it off with a grind,
Beginners, keep practicing whether hit or miss,
Jamaican Flag and Ifle Tower picture tricks,
These knockoff sellers no time for haters,
Shout out to Ooch, shout out to Yomega,
I got throws signed by Boulay, Koloski, Dietz,
It was nice to meet…all of the local peeps.

Chorus:
I love yo-yos and I’m a grown up,
Yeah…so what, Hold Your Throws Up!!

Whole song here…Not the best sound…but it’s on Youtube:

Can’t wait to see more of your lyrics. I have a ton…

Video is private! :frowning:

EDIT: Skyhigh beat me to it!


#6

Snap…just fixed it. Thanks!! That verse is at 2:00. Not a video actually, just sound.


#7

I love that song! Is that on itunes? Haha FIrst time I have heard anybody write/perform a yoyo song


#8

TotalArtist… you are the best.


#9

Right back at you SHY.  :wink: I’m so happy there is a thread for people who like poetry to music.

Thanks Dingo.  I have not put it on Itunes.  I ran a whole contest using that song last year.  I made people answer how many tricks and yo-yo companies I called out in the song and stuff.  But, it’s an old song.  Perhaps I should put it on Itunes.  I can always email it to you.  ;)  As you can see, I reference Andre, or YYE in all my yo-yo songs.

A few lines from The Leather Holder Song by TotalArtist, copyright 2012.

This holder is the best, so you know you gotta have it,
with some help from the man who made the Dark Magic,
You’ve seen it before, now it turned into my best work,
it’s not in other stores, just on Yoyoexpert.
I had a throw…played it, needed a holder, I’m creative,
so I waited, then debated, bought some leather then I made it,
It took some planning, then even a little hammering,
Now there in demand and even the pros are wearing it,
The smart ones paid, cause I got holders for days,
black, brown, red, some are two toned or beige,
It looks hot it’s, thick leather…metal, it locks it’s,
4 good reasons to come out of your pockets…

This song here…also in acapella:


#10

Dude, let me write you a rap, but you gotta preform it.


#11

Deal! Or, we can write one together here, and I’ll record it and we’ll post it in the thread when it’s finished. First, we need a topic. I’ve already written songs about being old and loving yo-yos, a yo-yo holder, my yo-yo case, Yomega, and mgiroux77 even :smiley: So, I’ll let you choose a yo-yo related topic, and we’ll start from there. I will take your topic and lyrics and mold them into a freestyle length song.

So, what topic do you choose? Also, give me like the first two lines and we’ll go from there. :wink:


#12

That was pretty dope…


#13

Yoyo’s and Swag, just because that’s the easiest.

Chorus:
Yoyo’s and swag, yoyo’s and swag
I got yoyo’s and swag in my yoyo bag

Verse:
Leather holster, rhymes colder than aluminum my style is super dumb
I stay frosted, lost in a sea of strings and ano, who care’s about hater scum
get out of the slum of thrower’s block, get locked and loaded, scolded by those who don’t understand the yoyo purpose, haters get folded
thrown into the trash, hit them with a whiplash, because I whip fast, get with my style that kicks a**
put haters on blast, rap faster than the rpm out of a spinning ceramic
all these little kids think they good, but they don’t know a single trick
I eat a general yo for breakfast, and a CLYW for dinner
when it comes to competitions, I’m the only winner
Throw down so hard people think I’m a sinner, because it takes a contract with the devil to get tricks this killer
Yoyoexpert.com is the forum i visit, better recognize
All these tricks are just too complicated for your eyes
why do you even try, i’m the speed king and all you do is lie

Will add more, some syllables are off, but I’m still fine tuning my abilities.


#14

i been ballin throwin so dang hard
i swear i think that im kobe andre


#15

I love those lyrics! You gave me a whole verse in no time. I’m working on verse 2 of this song now…my next post will be the second verse. Then, I’ll record it and post it up soon. :wink:


#16

I have this so far for verse 2:

I do it all day, kids think I’m the coolest,
Tricks smooth and fluid, like when Andre do it.

and people are addicted, i’m the sickest, they get hooked,
what I got isn’t those moves from a yo-yo trick book.

So, while your friends look slow, old and senile,
meanwhile, they’re amazed in a daze when I freestyle.

But all that don’t matter, competition knows to scatter,
why? it’s all about my yo-yos and my swagger.

Tricks like Harold Owens, throw until my middle finger is swollen,
yoyoing…in yoyoexpert clothing,

which means I look too fine to give my enemies time,
throwing yo-yo, a super G like I’m Gentry Stein.

The Totalartist, yeah, so if they ever bring my name up,
it’s time to change up, lame ducks, and step your game up.

I’m a thrower and very skilled rhyme flower,
Write rhymes shoulder to shoulder, with another thrower Noah.


#17

I used your lyrics to make it into this, so it flows good. I think it came out nice…

Verse 1

Whether they’re young or older, my rhymes are colder,
than an aluminum boulder, a throw is in my leather holder,

So bring it on, strong, and I challenge you to come,
Throwing and making songs, and my style is super dumb,

Where I’m from…I stay frosted, lost in a sea of strings and ano,
Like Augie Fash, Fast like you don’t understand so,

get out of thrower’s block, get locked and loaded,
All my enemies get mocked and scolded, cause I’m the coldest,

My whip’s so fast, that it can give you whiplash,
draws attention quick fast, cause my style it kicks *ss,

Haters be on blast, I’m faster than spinning ceramics
Kids don’t understand it, I do damage and leave 'em stranded,

General yo for breakfast, Caribou Lodge is dinner,
So don’t try to step to this, I’ll come out the winner,

Throw down so hard that several think I’m a sinner,
Takes a contract with the devil, to get some tricks this killer,

Yoyoexpert is the forum I visit, so recognize,
That I’m sick wit’ it, competition…just step aside.

Verse 2

I do it all day, kids think I’m the coolest,
Tricks smooth and fluid, like when Andre do it.

and people are addicted, i’m the sickest, they get hooked,
what I got isn’t those moves from a yo-yo trick book.

So, while your friends look slow, old and senile,
meanwhile, they’re amazed in a daze when I freestyle.

But all that don’t matter, competition knows to scatter,
why? it’s all about my yo-yos and my swagger.

Tricks like Harold Owens, throw until my middle finger is swollen,
yoyoing…in yoyoexpert clothing,

which means I look too fine to give my enemies time,
throwing yo-yo, a super G like I’m Gentry Stein.

it’s time to change up, lame ducks, and step your game up.

I’m a thrower and a very skilled rhyme flower,

I’m working on adding to the chorus now…


#18

awesome dude! I think LinksLegionaire or whatever made a pretty good chorus.
And thanks for smoothing out the lyrics I wrote, I’m getting a bit better I think!
