The Rhyme was the name of XM Satellite Radio's uncensored Classic Hip-Hop channel. The executive producer of the channel was Snoop Dogg. [1] This was one of five channels to have an xL marking, which indicates frequent language.

The format was scrapped on November 12, 2008 as part of the Sirius/XM merger, and this paved for Sirius XM to launch its temporary Christmas music channels. The format was brought back with Sirius's BackSpin on January 15, 2009.
