* ButNotTooBlack: Subverted with "Am I Black Enough For You?"



* LongSongShortScene: The version of "Am I Black Enough For You?" heard in ''KingOfNewYork'' has a different beat from the album version. It was never released in any form outside of this movie. Most people loading up the album version on Website/YouTube expect to hear the version from the movie.

* ShoutOut:
** The title of his album "Reservoir Dog" is a shout-out to ''Film/ReservoirDogs''.
** Music/BeastieBoys sampled "Gucci Time" in "Time To Get Ill" from their debut ''Music/LicensedToIll'' (1986).
** Music/{{Primus}} mentions him in their song "Harold of the Rocks".



** Jimmy Page sued Schoolly D for using "Kashmir" in "Signifying Rapper", yet Page and [[Music/RageAgainstTheMachine Tom Morello]] played the exact same riffs in Puff Daddy's 1998 ''Film/{{Godzilla|1998}}'' single "Come with Me", opening a huge amount of criticism. Creator/AbelFerrara in particular slammed Page, since removing "Signifying Rapper" from ''Film/BadLieutenant'' ruined the movie in Ferrara's view. Not to mention, Led Zeppelin was ''really'' guilty of plagiarisms in their early days, having been hit with similiar lawsuits for taking riffs and lyrics from blues bands and not crediting them. Thus, their lawsuit against "Signifying Rapper" is really not justified.

* The single "P.S.K. (What Does It Mean?)" was the first GangstaRap track, as the song loosely alluded to the gang Park Side Killas. Music/{{Ice-T}} admitted that this was his inspiration to rap about his own gang experiences.
