It also frees you up lyrically. Don’t be afraid to stray from it. You can always return to it.
Good advice... I am turning to a glitch song to glitch hop for that very reason... A lot of songs long ago used to break from rhythm and melody and go completely bare except for a talking voice to lay down content. I like on the old songs and now it is back in a big way... good tip.
