** From the same album, "Afro Connections at a Hi 5 (In the Eyes of the Hoodlum)" is an entire song lambasting "studio [[GangstaRap gangstas]]" (''and'' it ends with an Arsenio-style "Let's get busy!") and "Kicked Out The House" mocks house-rap.

Added DiffLines:

* CurseCutShort: At the beginning of "Afro Connections At A Hi 5", there's some ranting about R&B music - "You mean Rhythm and Blues?" "No, Rap and BULLSH-" - and the music immediately cuts off that last word.


Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionFStrike: Two on ''De La Soul Is Dead'', at the beginning of "Afro Connections At A Hi 5" (which, curiously, also contains a SoundEffectBleep and a CurseCutShort) and another courtesy of a sample at the end of "My Brother's A Basehead".


Added DiffLines:

* SoundEffectBleep: There are a few parts of ''De La Soul Is Dead'' that dub a "cracka" sample over curse words.

* LighterAndSofter: In comparison to Music/ATribeCalledQuest's more "Abstract" beats, as Q-tip puts it, De La Soul was this until they finally sunk to their level in Buhloone Mindstate, which was even more bizarre and "Abstract" than the Tribe's Midnight Maruders.

Added DiffLines:

* SixthRanger: Female rapper Shortie No Mass contributed to several tracks on ''Buhloone Mindstate'' and was even part of the group photo on the album cover, so she could very well be considered a "Plug Four" here.

** The Atmosphere song "Millie Fell Off The Fire Escape" is a sequel to this, which has Millie running from the mall, trying to hide out on the roof of an old factory, realizing the severity of the situation she put herself in, and falling to her death when the cops corner her.
