I think you’re always taught at school as a little kid that nothing rhymes with the word ‘orange’ but here comes one of the most famous and possibly best rappers of all time to prove that we’re actually completely wrong about that.

Eminem was talking to Anderson Cooper back in 2010 when he told us all the revelation during an appearance on 60 minutes, but some guy shared the clip on TikTok this week and it absolutely blew up with 3 million people watching it at the time of writing. Check it out below and see what you think:

The word orange doesn’t rhyme with anything, and it kind of pisses me off because 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 storage and ate por-idge with George.
OK, that’s being a bit creative with the pronunciation and nobody really says ‘orange’ like that, but I suppose you have to be a bit creative to get around that problem and Eminem is well known for being innovative in the way he raps/freestyles, so just take it for what it is.
I’m not spitting out any bars any time soon, but if I was then I would definitely be getting one of those orange rhymes in. Can you imagine the absolute fire when you drop that in the battle rap? Illegal.
