My man put me up for the share, one-fourth of a square
Headed for Delaware wit' one change of gear
Nothin' on my mind but the dime sack we blazed
wit' the glaze in my eye that we find when we crave
dollars and cents- A fugitive with two attempts
Jakes had no trace of the face, now they drew a

print
Though I'm innocent 'til proven guilty,
I'ma try to get filthy, purchase a club and start up for realty
For real, G, I'ma fullfill my dream
If I conceal my scheme, then precisely I'll build my C.R.E.A.M.
The first trip without the clique
Sent the ***** wit' the quarter brick, this is it
Fresh face, NY plates, got a crooked eye for the Jakes
I want it all, ArmorAll Benz and endless papes
F' God sake, what a ***** got to do to make a half million
without the FBI catchin' feelin's

lol Nas isn't exactly known for multi syllable rhyming. Kanye never does. Kendrick hardly does either. There's a difference between internal and external rhyming and multi syllable rhyming. Think more along the lines of Eminem, Big Pun, or Big L.

multisyallable (as i understand its meaning) isnt really Nas' lane.
 
a multisyllable rhyme scheme is exactly what it is says more then one syllable 

like instead of rhyming cat and hat u can rhyme another 2 syllables with it like my hat hi cat.

the rule is to rhyme more then one syllable and they all have to actually rhyme and match in syllable count

like the example above.

I have to give it to AZ, he was the smoothest with it. After him it would probably be Em, but if you listen to Infinite, he was basically just stealing AZ's flow

Nas is my favorite MC but he never really specialized in multis. He definitely uses them and when focused on a verse or whole song using multis, especially during his Escobar days, he was nasty but he doesn't constantly use them like the guys above.

Still leave authors and writers with arthritis

I would have to say no to answer the OP's question. Kendrick is the best I have heard at it since Nas.

Common is also very good at this but not on Nas' level.

I mean I really like Nas, but you guys must not listen to very much music if you think Nas or Kendrick Lamar set the standard for multisyllabic rhyming :lol:

Yep, it was Rakim. He said he modeled his flow after John Coltrane's sax playing.

imo Em and Big Pun were generally the nastiest at this.
