Family Rhyme (consonant substitution near rhyme)

lover > suffer/rougher/buzzer/buffer
touch > such/bluff/buss/begrudge
test > left/stretched/bequest/fledged

A rhyme that is based on the principle that consonants can be grouped into clusters that exhibit a strong enough resemblance in sound to belong to the same family. Family rhymes are in essence perfect rhymes that freely interchange the consonants that belong to the same family namely plosives (b/d/g/p/t/k), fricatives (v/z/zh/j/f/th/s/sh/ch) and nasals (m/n/ng).
This is very popular in modern music since it can create a stronger agreement in sound than the last syllable rhyme, yet still allows fresh alternatives to otherwise overused perfect rhymes.
