Bad Rap is a verbal warm up. It is also know as "Boom Shaka Laka." It is in certain ways the opposite of "Beastie Boys Rap."


A rhyming syllable is established by the first player. The second player then raps a sentence whose final word would obviously rhyme with that that syllable, but does not fill in the final rhyming word. The third player must fill it in with a word that does not rhyme. The third player then sets a up sentence to rhyme with their new word, and the fourth fills in with a new non-rhyming word.
