Songwriting, rhyme and why Eminem is awesome

(CBS) - Back in high school or college, chances are you had a course that explained rhyme schemes within poetry. And while you probably covered many poets over the course of history, aren't musicians a bit like modern day poets?

Check out this informative and fascinating video that explains rhyme within music, and why Eminem is a modern day Longfellow.

The video goes on to explain why Eminem is so amazing in terms of his rhyme schemes at about 2:54 into the video (which you definitely need to make sure and see, it will blow you away).
