Rhymes, rhymes, everywhere.



Mike Lombardo gives a little tutorial on how rhyming works in songwriting, then goes on to show how rap music has changed from its early days, when only the last word in each line rhymed, to now, where Eminem tends to rhyme nearly every word in his songs.

Definitely a cool video to check out, if not to help appreciate the rap genre just a little more.

  8. This made a lot of sense.... put a lot of things into words that I was noticing off-hand while listening to rap.

  9. I personally think the rhyming like every word is a bit much, but maybe that is just me. :P

  11. Mosaic rhymes are my favorite. I find them hard to incorporate into writing, though.

    Did he really? That's incredible. I love listening to his music for all the clever wordplay he uses, and the references he makes to previous songs, even in other albums.
