Try "My Shot" By Lin Manuel Miranda from the Hamilton Cast Album.


"I prob’ly shouldn’t brag, but dag, I amaze and astonish / The problem is I got a lot of brains but no polish"

There, 'astonish' and 'polish' are an exact rhyme, but there is also use of an internal rhyme with the phrases "brag" and "dag" (dag being a substitute for 'damn' to create that internal rhyme).

"Then King George turns around, runs a spending spree
He ain’t ever gonna set his descendants free
So there will be a revolution in this century
Enter me!"

I think this is a good example of an end rhyme , considering there is a rhyme of 'spree', 'free', 'century', and 'me'.

"See, I never thought I’d live past twenty
Where I come from some get half as many"

In this excerpt, 'twenty' and 'many' are not quite a precise/exact rhyme, but they sound similar, so that creates a slant rhyme.
