Added DiffLines:

** SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion, mainly for when it's done out of sheer laziness rather than trying to use it for an actual clever design choice such as with Music/TwentyOnePilots.

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: His list of the top nine worst lyrics of 2016 has him wrapping up by putting the entirety of B.o.B.'s "Flatline" at #1. His discussion of the song's failings culminates in a massive TheReasonYouSuckSpeech at {{conspiracy theorist}}s, accusing them of poisoning the discourse such that actual problems with government and corporate corruption and malfeasance can't be discussed rationally without being lumped in with raving lunatics. He then realizes what he just said...
-->"In fact, if I didn't know any better, I'd think that... oh my God. These conspiracy nuts are a plant by evil corporations! They're there to make any actual criticism of the effects of their tyranny look crazy! Oh my God, it's the perfect plan! To keep your mind occupied by fantasy that tells you that you're powerless, and misdirect people out there who want to be socially aware with gobbledygook about the Earth being flat! Because, y'know, ''that's'' what's ruining society! Listen to me, people! All you flat-earthers and 9/11 truthers out there, stop focusing your energy on this bulls**t! Remove the wool from over your eyes and realize that you should be using your energy to protest actual corrupt stuff like, like the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, or pushing for better police training! Stop talking about the weather machines or pizza parties or whatever bulls**t you're actually thinking about! That's just what the Illumi-Nazis or the Build-a-Bear Corporation want you to think! ''Open your eyes, sheeple!!!''"

* AutoTune: He doesn't seem to mind it in other contexts unlike most people, but he sees AutoTune when used in rap a flaccid attempt by producers to make lazy artists sound robotic and cool (despite rap not being based off of tonal pitch). Angrily discussed with "We Dem Boyz":
-->'''Rap Critic:''' I don't know about you, but when I hear a rapper with AutoTune on, I immediately tune out, because I have yet to hear a rap verse with AutoTune on it that was ever good. Not even from Music/LilWayne, not even from [[Music/KanyeWest Kanye.]] Sure, maybe there were some songs where they ''sang'' the whole time and I liked it, but I can't name you '''one''' good auto-tuned rap verse.



** [[ShallowParody Shallow Parodies]] that rely on StylisticSuck rather than saying something about the music it's parodying. It's the major reason why [[Music/LupeFiasco "Pussy"]] ended up on his Worst of 2014 list.

*** He and Todd jointly review Brad Paisley's "Accidental Racist", which eventually devolves into an argument over who makes the song suck, with the Rap Critic saying LLCoolJ's guest lyrics ruin the message, while Todd claims that it's Brad Paisley's fault for coming up with the idea in the first place.

* [[invoked]]OnceAcceptableTargets: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in his "Racist Cartoons" video. He concludes Part 1 by saying that the reason why these cartoons are appalling is not only because the cartoonists have a skewed perspective of black people and culture, but because they demonstrate a lack of knowledge in how humor works. He states that comedy works best when punching up, not down, as it's more satisfying seeing high figures (like politicians) brought down a peg rather than the disenfranchised (like minorities) looked down upon.

*** The Rap Critic ended up doing a cameo appearance for Todd's Best Songs of 2012 video, collaborated with him to review SnoopDogg and Wiz Khalifa's Mac & Devin Go To High School, and then had an appearance in Todd's review on AliciaKeys' "Girl on Fire" just to help Todd with the AWildRapperAppears in NickiMinaj. What makes this notable was that it was for three straight Todd videos in a row that he had appeared in![[note]]When Todd lampshaded that fact in "Girl on Fire" one too many times, Rap Critic gave him a DeathGlare.[[/note]]

** In the "No Love" review, he at one point compares his position on TGWTG to the TokenMinority in ''NotAnotherTeenMovie''. He frequently gets short cameos when someone wants to say something about black stereotypes in a work, but rather has a black person say it.

* TokenMinority: According to a commentary, he used the clip from ''NotAnotherTeenMovie'' to lampshade his own status on the site.

** In the CrossOver review with DiamandaHagan on the InsaneClownPosse movie ''Film/BigMoneyRustlas'', Rap Critic admits he actually found a decent number of the gags in the movie to be pretty funny (and in general found ''Rustlas'' to be a much better movie compared to it's predecessor, ''Film/BigMoneyHustlas''), particularly Sugar Wolf's cartoon-like "pimp slap" scenes.
