I would imagine the way to rap any song is to avoid any musical instruments aside from bass and drums, then shout the lyrics as loudly as you can. Bonus points for ad-libbing some self aggrandizement and/or misogyny.

Or you could avoid that advice. That's what I would do.

People think rapping is just talking fast, its not. Melody and rhythm play a huge part in rapping, which is why some people are just awful at it.

Just like any kind of music, there's good rap and bad rap. I think PoiDog has very accurately described bad rap, which - unfortunately - seems to be the most popular these days. On the other hand, some of the most interesting music being made today would qualify as hip-hop or features rap....
