Yo, what's up everybody how we doing today hope everybody's good. We're going to move into three syllable rhyme schemes. And this is where we're going to start getting into some more exciting stuff with stress syllables and unstressed syllables, and probably one of the most important things when actually creating your rhyme schemes just gonna turn the camera this way a little bit while we're doing this. But I think that this will be really cool for you guys to see and just some examples and stuff like that of good rhyme schemes, and how to, you know, manipulate them in such a way. So let's move on to the next slide. So stressed and unstressed syllables.

Before we really dive in, we want to talk about stressed and unstressed syllables. Again, as you can see how important it actually is. I almost made a full topic just on stressed and unstressed but it just really kind of trickles in in a lot of these different aspects in hip hop. But some of the examples that we're going to go over, let's talk about like, Where are the stress syllables in certain Words and certain phrases. So for example, we're going to start with the the example antichrist. And we're because I think it's a good example of how to use stressed and unstressed syllables.

So where are the stressed syllables in the word or phrase antichrist? They are our three syllables in the word antichrist obviously so and T Christ, different three syllables. A cool tip for finding the actual how many syllables there are a lot of the times you can find them by just look counting how many vowels are in the set in the word. You know, there are some exceptions to that but there's an A and I and another eye, and that's where you get your syllable count from. So that's a cool way to determine where the syllables are. Now the emphasis is what is stress syllable is so where is the emphasis and the word antichrist?

Okay, now determining This is important and for native English speakers, this is Easy but for people who aren't native English speakers, you have to determine where the emphasis and the stress is on the words or the sentence. So antichrist, so antichrist, when you say it like normally, there's a stress on the and, and there's stress on the eye. So there's an eye kind of in terms of the actual two stress syllables that are important to see. So you got the and stressed you got the two, and then Christ. So antichrist. That's how you say it normally, that's where the stress and the unstressed are now the reason why this is important to understand, because when you're rhyming, the main part of the rhyme just needs to follow those stress syllables.

The words and the stuff in between isn't as important so the unstressed syllables like the to, so antichrist, the T isn't as important to rhyme and you can find way more options available for you To like with perfect and slant rhymes, so this is where we're going to be. So you can use close to perfect rhymes like for example, if you were to use antichrist, panty heist Auntie diced some tomatoes Shanti priced, those are all pretty close to perfect Rives they'll have that antichrist, panty heist and T diced, which makes sense right? But if you are to go on top of that you can have more options available to you if you just use the near rhyme option. Now why that's cool so if you just use slant rhymes so you'll actually break it down into C of aunty as one section and then Christ as the next section and you can come up with slant Rhymes For those so antichrist camera lights so lights and Christ that's a slant rhyme auntie and Camry that's a slant rhyme family fights Nancy price handy knife fancy bikes Which is cool, you get more options that are available to you.

Now on top of that, this is super important to understand the rhyme, the stressed vowel you don't have to run the unstressed vowel. So in the middle of Antichrist, there's a little unstressed syllable in there. You don't have to rhyme that at all. It doesn't even have to have that e sound to it. Okay. So that being said, you could have something that's like, Let's see some examples on here.

So you got camera sites. So, camera sites, it's not cam recites. It's camera sites, but antichrist in camera sites still works. I can recite camera sites with grant advice and anvil strikes. I got candle lights, and like Vanna White, I'm gambling dice. I got a sample slice so I can manage life.

It's you can come up with words. So if you start with the stress syllables, it's that's the most important thing to rhyme. And like I said, the end of the rhyme, which is always the last syllable is the most important to be the closest, right? So you could even say, rap in life, and antichrist, it's not as good because yes, the end and the M sound need to be there to make it sound a little bit more crisp. If you know what I mean by that. Take a look at another option here, which is private shows.

Okay, so private shows, doesn't have an N or an M in it. But say for example, a word like kaleidoscopes. Now, that's four syllables. But if you structure your bars properly, then when you say, Yeah, I got some private shows, but I'm looking through kaleidoscopes. It still is a multi, but there's that extra syllable at the start. So essentially, you would just use that guy, there's also going to be other options that you can use and change it into two words.

So private shows, wine Marlowe's, right so you're it's you're not rhyming It with Weimer it's more like you're just using the stress syllables to understand how this sounds so I oh I oh that's essentially where you're trying to find it right so private shows I in Oh wine Marlowe's designer clothes violet rose the highest dosed I'm flying close to the something something you know what I mean? So I think that that's a cool thing to understand and then with the stress syllables, you still have the option for three syllable rhymes where it's all stresses, okay? So for example, if you wanted to rhyme, Dwayne Wade shoots, those are all stress syllables, okay? Because mostly they're all it's three different words right? It's almost like a compound three syllables, but it's not. Dwayne Wade shoots.

Now you can go through and find each particular rhyme for like Dwayne and brain and game if you want to, but know that at the start of the It's not as important to be perfect. So you could use words like Dwayne and eight, or may or make or hate, right? The most important is the end of the rhyme. That's what needs to be the closest to the phonetic families or the actual consonant sounds that comes off of it. So when Dwayne Wade shoots you could say eighth grade roots, or Dwayne or brain wave loops. And you'll my brain wave loops when Dwayne Wade suits I got game day juke since my eighth grade roots, it's like melee moves.

I go home and make great juice and never mix it with vodka cuz I hate Grey Goose or something like that. Right? You see how it just starts to sound dope. When you get those multi syllable rhyme schemes in there. I think that's super cool thing to understand. Now you can also have stressed, stressed and then unstressed syllables.

Now it's important to know that because even though this is an unstressed syllable at the end of the rhyme, it's useful Still have to be as close to perfect at the end of the rhyme as possible. That is in order to maintain the structure because I could say say I wanted to run snowblower right, you can't run snow blower with slow going, it just doesn't sound that good snow blower and slow going, it doesn't sound as good as if it was snow blower with a comb over. You know what I mean? I saw his comb over after hitting them with a snow blower. I got no closure from being stone sober, the boat motor, give them the cold shoulder. I don't know how I fit broke toaster into there, but it's you can understand what I mean by the first part of the rhyme doesn't need to be as perfect whereas the second part of the rhyme, or the last part of the rhyme does need to be closer to tight, which is super interesting to understand.

So have a worksheet following this lesson and you can build start building your own multi syllable rhyme book by going through and finding your own cool rhymes for some of these different options that I have laid in there. And I'll give you examples. You can also just come up with your own three syllable rhymes, but I highly recommend just doing it writing out, you know, five to 10 rhymes for each cool three syllable things so you can get a feel of the different structures from the stress syllables and the unstressed syllables. But yeah, Edison rainmakers, we're going to move on to four syllable rhyme schemes after this. So peace, catch you in the next video.
