Interesting beats that mix up every song. (Subverts expectations in stanzas) Emphasis on certain words for more impact, punchy. Throws words back and forth (Childlike whilst discussing heavy subject matter). Uses common social issues in ghettos and black neighbourhoods to relate to their audience, trying to punch a message. Wake Up is very layered, probably one of my favourites. Describes a utopia, then tells us it was all a dream. (On the nose.) Very unsubtle, but thats not a negative, just unappealing to me.
