You need to figure what genre you belong in
- Street rappers tend to rap about what goes on in the hood
- glam rappers are more what they got and what you don't
- the I don't care artist that might not be good but will still make music
- R&B type
- Hip-Hop and R&B
- Classic R&B
All of this can range from $150 to over $350 or less if you find deals or have friends.
- a stand: boom or regular
- studio headphones
- a pop filter
- shock mount
- a sound proof room
- someone that can help
If you want quality sound without paying a lot go on Ebay or somewhere to find deals, or just ask around.
