* CamelCase: The album covers render his stage name as "[=CapaRezza=]", however this way of writing is used almost only on ThatOtherWiki (the Italian version). ''Possibly'' referenced in one of his songs, when someone calls him "Mr. Rezza Capa".

* ReferenceOverdosed: He applies a metaphor to his lyrics and takes it UpToEleven, for example the songs ''Abiura di me'' (about his will to improve as an artist) and ''La marchetta di Popolino'' (about narrow-minded people) are disguised as huge amounts of videogame and WaltDisney references.

'''Caparezza''' (born Michele Salvemini on October 9, 1973) is an Italian rapper known for his often political lyrics, serious statements expressed with unusual and ironic metaphors, nasal voice [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and his]] FunnyAfro. Influenced by Music/FrankZappa, Caparezza is also known for [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre blending]] [[ConceptAlbum concept albums]].

He began his musical career in 1995 under the name '''Mikimix''', writing melodic rap/hip hop songs with little success; since 2000 he underwent a total change of appearance and style, rejecting his past and openly mocking it.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Deliberately invoked in one song. ''Pimpami la storia'' ("Pimp My History") is all about this, being sung by the perspective of schoolboys who only care about modes and having fun. More broadly it's about how history is being over-simplified for the masses, or even totally distorted to please ideologies. One example: they think the "Marshall Plan" was made by Music/{{Eminem}}'s grandfather...

* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Not Caparezza himself, but many listeners. He wrote a catchy song called "Fuori dal tunnel", about how the system is trying to uniform people's free time too... which immediately became a huge summer hit in discos and mainstream radio channels, the expressions of that "fun factory" he derided. He spoofed this in one song of his next album, when someone listens to "Fuori dal tunnel" and thinks that [[ViewersAreMorons it's about drugs]].

* LastNoteNightmare: The song "Limiti" from his second album ends with a few seconds of silence... followed by Capa screaming AIUTO! (''Help!'') in a distorted, screechy voice.

** Since "otto" means "eight" in Italian, the song ''Giotto Beat'' may be another great example: as a reference to Giotto the artist (the lyrics talk about "perspective"), as a play on words to "8-bit", and a reference to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G8_%28forum%29 G8 summit]] ('''G-otto'''), especially the one that took place in Italy in 2001 where several protesters were brutally '''beat''' by police officers.
