    You still don't get it.

    AABB (mono-syllabic)

    "My dog is my friend (A)
    He's there to the end (A)
    Fuck with me and he'll bite (B)
    Because my shit is mad tight" (B)

    AABB (multi-syllabic)

    "Your dog is a pussy and you look like one (A)
    My lines devour lames cuz I'm a crook like Pun (A)
    Step to me and get fucked like a prostitute (B)
    They should call me Rob Banks cuz I get lots of loot (B)


    Simple vs simple... nothing complex about either of those verses.

    They're all end rhymes...

    Check this out...

    "Ha, sicker than your average (AB)
    Poppa twist cabbage off instinct (ABC)
    Niggas don't think shit's stink, pink gators (DDDE)
    My Detroit players (E)
    Timbs for my hooligans in Brooklyn (FFF)
    Dead right, if the head right, Biggie there er' night (GGG)
    Poppa been smooth since days of Underoos..." (HH)

    Notice how there is NO fixed scheme here... it's variable as fuck... with assonance and internals, as welll

    His flow was extemporaneous... free associative... conversational... like water
    And that's how his schemes were, too... unpredictable and off meter

    THAT is advanced and complex, my friend... not AABB or ABAB... which is what MOST multi rappers are.

    And fuck schemes if your content sucks... if your flow sucks... if your voice sucks... you're wack as fuck if you can't rap with rhythm and move people physically, emotionally and mentally... period

    im going to school u right now quickly on advance rhyming because obviously u don't know what complex rhyming is imo
    check this out this is from rakim from the song 18th letter and note= only half of the verse only a few lines


    When it was one mass of land, with one nash' of man
    And the whole mass was ran under one master plan
    Since the world's metamorphis, and the plan is kept in orbit
    Turntables we spin awkward but needles never skip off it
    Rhythms we expressin similar to our ancestors
    It'll answer your questions if you understand the message
    From the days of the slave choppers, to the new age of prophets
    As heavy as hip-hop is I'm always ready to drop it
    From the mind which is one of Allah's best designs
    And mines'll stand the test of time, when I rhyme

    the rhyme scheme is ridiculous complex always switching it up and most rappers use abab not aabb also
    that biggie verse did'nt have no long string of multis the longest rakim multi in these lines is 5 syllables

    and biggie only rhymes like maybe like three lines in each one of his verses that are just double and triple rhymes

    rakim for example in this example and can do that for most of the whole verse and he rhymes more syllables then biggie also while switching up rhyme patterns. and not rhyming the same word putting words together that actually rhyme and having rhyming syllables all over the bar and not just at the end of the line and making sense.

    rakim basically knows how to put it together biggie does not

    basically biggie not fucking with the elite level of rhyming imo he don't know how to put it together like rakim pun nas and eminem end of story.

    I don't even want to guess what sort of slovenly garbage you allow to adorn your feet.

    You undoubtedly use towels as drapes and dress like a bum.
