    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?
    Like
    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

    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.

    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

    Continuous rhyme:

    So I was chillin' with my pal, we had to go..
    To the sto, fo' some mo candy, like blow
    pops..

    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

    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.
