** The "chugging" rhythm of "You Haven't Done Nothin'" from ''Fulfillingness' First Finale'' is pretty friggin' incredible.

* EpicRiff: The main riff from "Superstition", originally played by layered clavinets. By this nature, "You Haven't Done Nothin'" is in a similar position, with a slightly different synth sound at the start.
** The repeating bassline from "I Wish". Why yes, that is where Creator/WillSmith got the idea for Film/WildWildWest from!
