How do YOU get in that creative mood?

I know this thread is full of rappers. We all know it can be difficult to write if you’re just not in the mood. Is there anything that you do in particular to get you there, or do you just wait for inspiration to hit you?

I gain inspiration by fapping to Alexis Texas, Lisa Ann, and Gianna Michaels .…

I feel the most creative in the early mornings when its nice and quiet. I also listen to a large variety of music to inspire my bars.

I sit and think, “if I was Jay Cutler, how would I feel right now”…and work from that.

For me it’s almost of rituals of sorts.
I get off work from Office Depot every Friday.
I go to a random hospital around 10 PM after picking up an escort.
We sneak into any room with a comatose elderly citizen.
Before we get down to business I have her strip me completely naked.
After that, she gets the privilege of coating me in baby oil.
Then we get down & dirty, real raunchy sex on top the patient.
Then right when I reach my peak, I reach for my pants, pull out a pocket knife, slit the escorts throat & pull the patient’s plug.
After cleaning my materials & whatnot I’m hit with endless visions of lyrics.
Fun Fact: In Europe this is called MC Ride’s Seatbelt.

Masturbation. Lots of it.

But for realz, not sure. It just kind of happens, though it seems to happen a lot when I’m lying in my bed trying to go to sleep. It’s actually kind of annoying. Most of the time, it’s super late and I want to go to sleep, but I end up getting up to write whatever it is down because I don’t want to lose it.

Late at night and just randomly I’ll get inspired and want to write

I feel you guys. I’m just curious cause I got writer’s block right now. Shit, when I’m feeling creative and write late at night, what seems perfect at 2, seems damn near terrible the next day.

You gotta develop your own ritual, but these are usually components of my writing:

-Drugs. This is not to say that I can’t write sober, this is not to say that you should ever think you can’t write sober, this is not to say that some people can even work while they’re on drugs (we all know that one dude who comes through the studio but always just burns and doesn’t record his shit). All that said, I find that the urge to write (and the type of idea I need to act on it) hits more when I’m intoxicated.

-Night. This is because A) I’m usually active at night, B) It makes it easier to do drugs, and C) At night I have a lot of feelings sometimes and when I do it helps to write them out.

-Motion. This I know for a fact is just some shit I’ve always been on: I, personally, cannot create if I’ve been sitting in place for too long. Or more accurately, I can’t stay in one place for too long while I’m creating. Writing bars I pace around the room & do shit like that, or I write while I’m walking.

-Not stopping. This is advice I’d give everybody. Once I get into a groove of writing things, I don’t stop writing until something prevents me from going on. Do the same.

Also, learn more and more to accept those weird little ideas that just beam into your brain from Pluto and write off them.

It’s when I’m feeling my most un-creative that I desire to write. That’s when I feel the need to write the most
