mixing board in a studio. Recoridng hip-hop

It’s a question scholar’s have debated for centuries. At one point in history, the presence of rhyme was a necessity and essential piece of the jigsaw puzzle, but in modern times, most scholars argue that rhyming couplets, commonplace in Hip-Hop, are an outdated form of poetry.
