You might think that there's no word in the English language which rhymes with 'orange', but Eminem is here to show you that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
There's a whole host of wonderful words that nothing really rhymes with like 'silver', 'purple' or 'pint', but 'orange' has got to be the most famous one of all.
If you should ever find yourself in a rap battle, then the biggest mistake you could ever make is to end a line with one of those words as your lyrical flow will be interrupted and you'll look silly.
Or so we thought, but one of the greatest rappers of all time has unlocked the secret to making orange work as a rhymable word, and it's actually pretty genius.
Eminem has worked out that the only way you're going to get something to rhyme with orange is to accept that nothing actually rhymes with orange.
Instead you need to change the way you say it, don't play orange's little non-rhyming game, make orange play by your rules.
Speaking to Anderson Cooper, Eminem revealed that once you accepted nothing rhymes with orange, you instead flipped it around and made orange sound like it rhymes with other things.
He explained: "The word orange doesn’t rhyme with anything, and it kind of p****s 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 stor-age and ate porr-idge with Geo-rge."
If it's good enough for the real Slim Shady then it's good enough for us, and you can impress all your friends who think nothing rhymes with orange by wowing them with his lyrical trick.
The man is an absolute lyrical genius, because when the world says you can't rhyme orange with anything and even though he accepts it to be true, he still finds a way.
Tricks like these might help Eminem overcome some rappers taking aim at him, with The Game recently releasing 10 minute long diss track 'The Black Slim Shady'.
While the diss track says he 'used to be like a rap god', someone who can do the impossible and find a way to rhyme words with 'orange' is always going to be above the rest of us mere mortals.
