If you really want to stick to the rules of the English language, Eminem did not find a word that rhymes with ‘orange’ because no such word exists. However, the rapper did demonstrate his incredible abilities by finding a way to pronounce the fruit’s name so that it can sound like it rhymes, and works within the rhythm of a song.

Eminem’s Approach

The rapper showcased his approach to dealing with tricky words like ‘orange’ by saying, “I can think of a lot of things that rhyme with orange. If you’re taking the word at face value, and you just say ‘orange,’ nothing is going to rhyme with it exactly. If you enunciate it and make it more than one syllable, or-ange, you can say, like, I put my or-ange, four inch, door hinge in stor-age and ate porr-idge with Geo-rge.” We admit it’s kind of bending the rules, but it’s also kind of awesome. It’s not like Eminem was ever such a rule follower anyway!

The Public’s Response

Of course, the internet had a lot to say about Eminem showing us the inner workings of his mind when it comes to creating a rap. One person wrote on social media that Slim Shady is “One of the best rappers of all time.” Another expressed, “Eminem’s linguistic agility never fails to amaze! The way he bends words to his will and finds rhymes where most can’t, like with ‘orange’ shows his genius in full flow. Language is a playground for this guy, and watching him at work is a masterclass in creativity with words.” While a third simply stated, “GOAT for a reason!”
