School me, por favor.
Do you really? Or are you just mocking Mak? lol
Nope, not mocking...I've recently ventured into the RSTL section and surprise, surprise...I need to master those rhyming tools if I ever wish to improve my writing...
Hence a help me thread...
For multi-internal verbal dexterity, study the masters... Eminem, Royce, Kool G. Rap, Pharoahe Monch, Edan, Breezly Brewin, Vakill, etc.
However, if you really want to improve your writing, study the masters... Emerson, Pope, Baldwin, Ellison, Shakespeare, Morrison, etc.
Then take all of that... combine it with style, wit, creativity and originality.
If you bite or sound mundane, then you suck... no matter how intricate your multis and internals are.
Multisyllable rhymes (however you spell it) aren't the ones when more than one syllable rhyme?
One Syllable Rhyme (Only one syllable rhyme... duh)
I don't give a fuck
I pump out the slug
Multi-Syllable Rhyme (more than one syllable rhyming... duh)
I flows, so one of my shows wouldn't be clever to-miss
I'm leaving competitors pissed
To tell you the truth it gets no better than this
I can do it in 3 languages, none of which is English. So it's either beating up the English dictionary trying to find words that rhyme with words that have absolutely no other word to rhyme with...or try and learn it another way.
Ty for all recommendations and advice.
Yeah, I know the definitions and how they work in theory, it's the practical thingy I'm lacking in...
Ty, much appreciated.
don't listen to ignorant he don't know what he talking about on here as far as rap techniques.
if u want to learn how to rap all u had to do was ask me i know more about that sh1t then anybody on here.
for complex rhyme schemes listen to rappers not poets
listen to old common sense ras kass nas jay-z biggie lord finesse
az eminem g rap rakim etc.
im going to give u your first listen in multi's
Honestly, I do value Ignorant's opinion a great deal...
I'll use all the help I can get...
Ty, makaveli21, I do appreciate it.
those aren't even multi's that that's not my name posted smh
these are multi's
3 syllable Multis:
Sick As Fuck
Stick To Luck
quick to duck
pick a shmuck
with multi's they have to not only rhyme but they have to match in the amount of syllables u rhymed
and u have to rhyme with prominent syllables
if u have dictionary they tell u what is prominent and what is not take the word prominent
the first syllable is the most prominent
so that means when u write your multi
u rhyme with that part like bomb mom etc
and u can slant rhyme it they show u how to pronounce words in the dictionary also.
if u have trouble finding out what rhymes and what doesn't just use this rhyme dictionary called rhyme zone.
So basically I need to look at it as a math problem to solve...
I say you be you, Galatea... it's not the multi's in and of themselves that matter most... it's the CONTENT... the cleverness, the humor, and poetic devices such as metaphors, similes, alliteration, etc... cleverness can be displayed in wordplay and how you manipulate language... double entendres are really hot... but rappin' is more of a vocal art, so inflections, voice, pregnant pauses, stylish cadences, etc. matter just as much, if not more... however, since you're textin', only the written words matter in this arena... so just try to be clever as hell, even if you're simple in your schemes... varying schemes are more complex to do anyway... anybody can write multis in a fixed, end rhyming pattern.
I love multis just as much as the next person...but when I started getting more into recording music and deeper into my writing..multis aren't the most important thing in the world. It does show the listener and the viewer (if text rhyming) that you're creative at best, but the message is the most important thing.
You have multis:
packin' the mac
back of the ac
blastin' it back
slappin' the wack
So I was chillin' with my pal, we had to go..
To the sto, fo' some mo candy, like blow
those are just a few. I'll let Mak take over lol. Props to Ignorant too.
nah just be complex with your rhyme schemes
and focus on multi's more one syllable rhymes are not complex
anybody can do that put more internal rhymes in bars and too begining rhymes also
yeah because we all know the heart is what matters lol
anyways don't listen to nomak he don't know what he talking about
it is all about the talent gala
and don't us techniques like similes and alliteration
those are not impressive use metaphors and wordplay
have you made any rap songs?
exactly. shut the fuck up then.
dumb ass niggas, i swear.
said it best.
Well to put it simply..
Multi rhymes are just multiple syllabic patterns, such as..
"Exhume the tomb of Lazarus
Bring doom to slews of pacifists.."
Rhyme scheme is a general term which just refers to the type of rhyme you use..which I wouldn't even bother myself with worrying about, because your rhymes shouldn't be dictated solely by a scheme..they should come from the heart in order to be fluid. Unless you want them to sound lifeless and forced..
And internal rhymes are rhymes that occur inside the bar, like..
"I shed blood when I swing this blade
And lead slugs leave dead thugs when a nigga brings the pain"
Slant rhymes are basically just half rhymes, like..
slug, touch. rhyme, mine. death, flesh. They're words that still sound similar, but are not "technical rhymes.."
Took the words right out of my fucking mouth though. lol
What's unimpressive about alliteration? Alliteration makes listeners pay closer attention..at least in poetry.
Wordplay is definitely more useful when rapping..similes work fine too though in my opinion.
Separate names with a comma.
