These drugged out autistics don't have the brain to sit and write. Plus theyre followers, and it's not "cool" to write anymore. It's one of the reasons why mainstream hip hop is trash . Because some of your favorite rappers done watered down the game to the point that ANYBODY can do it

I knew about the punch-in method back around 2000 or so when I was in the studio but it was done more so to make your verses sound clean. For example, in between lines, there might be certain words that are difficult to say right behind each other cleanly. So you’d punch the bars in separately. At least with us, no one was using this method to make it sound like they were freestyling.

This method has been used far before Wayne started doing it. As soon as major studios stopped using adat and went more digital with pro tools this has been used.

I'm sure it's a lot faster.

My process has always been write when inspired, stop when the inspiration leaves and continue when it comes back. Recite out loud, change words around as necessary, repeat.

By the time I get in front of the mic, I have it memorized. From there, I stylize how I recite bars as necessary and voila.

This can take as little as 30 minutes or it can take as long as has to.

Punching in for corrections makes sense, but I couldnt imagine writing in such a stop and go fashion. (Although I can see how having a dedicated engineer to record you would help.)
