Some of the coolest rhymes of all-time are built in pieces. For example, on Figaro, one of MF Doom’s most lyrically lyrical songs, he busts the song open with one of the best couplets ever:
The rest is empty with no brain but the clever nerd
The best emcee with no chain ya ever heard
There’s three rhymes here: [rest is empty] and [best emcee],[no brain] and [no chain],[clever nerd] and [ever heard]. Or visually:
Putting this kind of rhyming together right now is hard, algorithmically or naturally. But, imagine of having the option to drag and drop this to build dense bars. So, I did just that. Click here.
Okay, so let’s break down the scheme in steps with visual examples from my new Drag-Drop rhymer.
Step 3: Rhyme [no brain].
Step 6: Drag last two rhymes into the frame.
Done! Using the DOOM template from Figaro, we’ve built a dense rhyming couplet in a few minutes with almost no hard work.
