All-inclusive west-coast rap by insanely good rappers who take foolish to mean funny, clever, and sometimes even socially aware without all the hangups of being socially conscious. But they always have a point, whether it's not being able to cum 'cause there's something off about the girl on your dick, relationships gone wrong, masturbation, or observations on racial profiling. Perhaps an extension of the daisy age of De La Soul but with more engaging rapping (to my ear) and more 90s sounding production, not kaleidoscopic like past daisy agers, not minimal and aggressive like gangsta contemporaries, but layered, funky, and jazzy in a way to suit the laid-back secret virtuosity of the satirical clown emcees
