    Free verse is non rhyming and no structure.

    Free verse is not the opposite of fixed patterns/schemes.

    Free-association with variable schemes is my favorite style of rhyming... Biggie was the king of this... and so is Pharoahe Monch.

    Most rappers have fixed schemes/patterns... I would say a good 90% of them do... only the elite can do variable schemes and free association.

    most of the great lyricist don' do that though they just write like most textcees think multis have to match in syllable count when they don't they just have to rhyme and be more then one syllable and not be the same word and be in a complex pattern.

    No, they don't have to do any of that... they just have to have a compelling and engaging style... it can be monosyllabic, multisyllabic, free association, fixed schemes, variable schemes, complex, simple, metaphoric, etc... just because you're complex doesn't mean you're dope... you keep believing that.

    'Same word' rhyming is a style and it's used all the time... Nas used it a lot on IWW... a lot of rappers use it... listen to Casua'ls "Styles" song and he breaks down a lot of styles or rhyme patterns...

    You put me onto free association... Really hit me listening to... Long Kiss Goodnight, I think it was?

    It's like breathing... it's very conversational and makes a flow malleable over layered beats that shift in tempo.
