Rappers Should Try Tongue Twisters

BURLINGTON, Wis. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rappers spittin’ rhymes on the mic should try “picking a peck of pickled peppers.”

So says Judith Schulz, spokesperson for the 9th Annual Tongue Twister Contest happening at the Tongue Twister Museum in Burlington, Wisconsin, on Saturday (Nov. 14).

Participants attempt to recite famous tongue twisters, like Peter Piper, as many times as they can in 10 seconds, and Schulz thinks rappers hoping to speed up their rhymes could learn a thing or two.

She says, “If you practice a lot it’ll make you better. I think rappers would do well with the tongue twisters because they already speak so quickly for their music.”

If Lil Wayne were to add some “seashells by the sea shore” into a song, Schulz thinks it could “start a new trend” in rap that would help fans speak more clearly and make the jams more kid-friendly.
