top 5 rhyme-iest bars [detected thru ‘complex’ computational methods]

So, as a part of a new project I’m working on it’s been important to go through lines in rap that have lots of rhymes and don’t use big words. Here are some random bars from random songs that fit this criteria that sound nice.

1. Benzino – Bang Ta Dis

Syllables Per Word: 1.125

2. JayZ – Parkin Lot Pimpin

big thangs thick chains

———————————-
Syllables Per Word: 1
Rhyme Score: 0.67

3. MF DOOM – Meat Grinder

wild west style fest ya’ll best to lay low
hey bro day glo set the bet pay dough

———————————-
Syllables Per Word: 1.05
Rhyme Score: 0.85

4. Boo – Boo & Gotti Freestyle [off the Fast/Furious soundtrack]

———————————-
Syllables Per Word: 1
Rhyme Score: 0.93

5. Cam’Ron – Bout it Bout it

    It seems like Cam’s bar might be 100%, if you take “get” / “legs” and “twist” / “ribs” to be slant rhymes via assonance.

      i think it is the word “still” that does not have a match. get/legs and twist-ribs are all counted as rhyming syllables. and it can be argued that the word “still” has a rhyme (maybe).

      but because the word “still” is considered a common word, and these common words are generally not pronounced with stress, it has a non-stressed syllable (IH0). and a non-stressed syllable rhyming with a stressed syllable requires a really close coda match (‘still’ has coda L, which doesnt match with many other consanants well. it matches with R and the empty Coda).

    This is a little off topic, but I am really enjoying this site. I hate having to search through the blog to find a certain tool. I think it would be cool if you made a separate page that compiled all the tools.
