The second part is the important piece here. So how does that work in practice? Let's say you have the word "feel." To create an additive rhyme we could add an s to the end and find words that rhyme with "feels" (like "steals" or "wheels").

This incredible genius taught me everything I know about lyrics and has opened my mind to how one word can change how the whole song feels. He's seriously unlocked the lyric floodgates for me. If you're interested in learning more about the world of lyric writing, I highly recommend you check out his online courses, attend one of his master classes, and get his Writing Better Lyrics book.

What if you tried to destroy the views that you cherish? Inversion prevents you from making up your mind after your first conclusion. It is a way to counteract the gravitational pull of confirmation bias.
Boi-1da: Personally, I don't feel like I am. I feel like I have a lot more to prove. Although I've been doing this for 10 years successfully, there's more for me to do before I even consider myself with them. ... In my mind, I'm still not there yet. I'm striving to be like somebody like Dr. Dre or somebody like Pharrell. Those guys have had moments in time with their music and have taken over decades. I still strive to be as greats as those guys. 2b1af7f3a8
