Re: After the drop... how do you compose the verse?
One way is to make the verse a series of key changes that lead up to the tonality of the part you want to stand out (the chorus).
You can do this by writing the chords in the opposite order (finding the last one first etc). If you end up starting your verse in a key that's too far away from the chorus, you might need to add a transition that leads from the chorus back to the verse as well.
If you don't know what I'm on about, I suggest reading up on diatonic chords and typical key changes (modulation) used in pop and jazz music.
