* AmenBreak: The song "Michael Jackson". This is an interesting case, as the song doesn't sample directly from the Amen Break, but rather samples Music/{{NWA}}'s sampling of the break in "Straight Outta Compton".

* OneHitWonder: In the United States, his only Top 40 entry is "Praise You". Most of his other worldwide hits managed to break the Modern Rock Tracks chart, however. "The Rockefeller Skank" does seem just as well known in the U.S.

* StupidStatementDanceMix: His entire career is basically made out of making these. Right Here, Right Now takes the titular vocals from Film/StrangeDays. His remix of Mike and Charlie's "I Get Live" is one of a [[WuTangClan Method Man]] interview. Drop the Hate remixes an old pastor's sermon. We could go on all night.

** Played with in "Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat." Although the main chorus is is a TitleOnlyChorus, the rest of the song is a giant stream of conscious rant about a MushroomSamba.
