My Pro Tips for rappers

Don't wait till you get to the studio to perfect performing your lyrics to the beat, get the mp3 version of track practice it over and over till fluid, record it on your phone or laptop etc.. so you know how the lyrics flow over the beat before you hit the studio. If don't you risk wasting time doing multiple retakes which can be expensive and drive the recording engineer nuts.
For best results take the individual stemmed instruments of the track to the studio to record your vocals over it, the individual track stems allow the mix engineer to adjust all levels and further EQ certain instruments that are competing for EQ space with your vocals. This will give the track balance, vocal clarity and it's own space.

The whole mixed track should have a temporary bus compression and limiter till you are happy with the mix level,this will help get accurate levels. Once happy with the mix the bus compressor and limiter should then be removed and the mix sent as a stereo wav file to a mastering engineer with -6db headroom. The -6db of headroom will allow the mastering engineer to make the track as loud as possible and ensure it plays back perfectly with maximum clarity on ALL systems.  They will put a mastering compressor and limiter on it. Phone and earbuds are currently the most popular playback devices.
