“People say that the word ‘orange’ doesn’t rhyme with anything, and that kind of pisses me off, because I can think of a lot of things that rhyme with orange […] If you enunciate it and make it more than one syllable — or-ange — you could say, like, ‘I put my or-ange four-inch door hinge in stor-age and ate por-ridge with Ge-orge.'”

— EMINEM, talking to Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes (via Vulture)


True, but they are quite obviously talking about no tweaks to the word "Orange", meaning it has to be pronounced as one, whole syllable.

When it all comes down to that, "Blorenge" and "Sporange" are the only true rhymes (not half rhymes or multiple syllable words) in reference to "Orange".


@JonMonfore In lyrics I don't think it would really matter for someone to concentrate on one syllable, like: 
'Oh damn, it doesn't fit in the beat. I have to remove it from my lyrics.' But to make it sound like you know, you are in the music and the word simply doesn't fit there, you'd have to crack the word according to the music's flow. 
What you are saying is just like: 'Remove that word, it seems like two different words("Or" "Ange").' 

Come on man it depends on how you write your thing, if it makes sense, its good. For me even if it makes me break the whole syllable, I would do it cause I wish my sentence to rhyme as I want them to be, not as they wish themselves to be.
