    Was just looking for some help really as i've started Mc'in with a mate who dj's for a laugh, if anyone had any tips or useful hints about it in general. Im not sure if there is much advice people can give but any is welcome.
    Also any useful hints on what to avoid and what not to avoid, i generally like to let the tunes speak for themselves and not mc too much as i know how annoying it can get.
    Cheers

    also dont do all the 'wagwan bare manz in de building but its really juz 2 coz we r too seriuzz'

    it gets annoying man.
    let the tunes speak and just spit when you feel is right.
    also if you ask the dj to give you a signal when to start a 32 bar then that would help aswell

    Use lots of cliches

    Make random noises. Try barking or tweeting like a bird perhaps

    Talk over vocals

    Bigup your mates/area

    Say bdbdbdbdbdbda & mnmnmnmnmnmna

    Tell everyone how great you are

    Tell everyone you've got loads of money (even if your on benefits)

    Call for the rewind on every tune

    Turn your mic volume all the way up

    Try singing out of tune

    Ask for a go on the Mic even if your not booked

    Make sure you say "mic check 1,2" at every opportunity

    Stick to these rules and you are certain to go far.

    Know the tunes, and don't MC over the important bits / lyrics.
    I would argue that MCs need to know the tunes just as well as DJs.

    Ignore the haters, and try to do something different. and obviously, let the music speak for its self. dont call for a rewind without askin the dj first. This really gets on my tits as a dj, cos it can kinda catch you off guard a bit if you have things planned.
