Up until this particular release, hip-hop was a law-abiding, no-violating zone when it came to creative license. Das-EFX made pop culture gibberish sound so fun that everyone was forced to change their style. You know what kind of power that is? To be that infectious that you can make an entire culture follow your lead? The downside, of course, is their style was run into the ground, leaving you no seconds at the dinner table.
