** {{Lampshaded}} when it comes to his review of [[KendrickLamar Swimming Pools]]. At the end of the review, he laments that the song has not achieved mainstream success. At the end of the next video however, he points out that the song ''did'' become popular, charting well between the two videos, thus making his previous complaining pointless.

Added DiffLines:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: His crossover review of ''Film/TheJazzSinger'' spends the last third in a furious, but justified rant about the damage that {{blackface}} has wreaked on African-American representation and how something that was deemed acceptable then shouldn't be given a pass now just because it was FairForItsDay.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: The Rap Critic's opinion of Pitbull's segue in his "Time Of Our Lives" video, where Pitbull essentially stops the song just to give encouragement to any of his listeners to might be facing some dark days. He notes that Pitbull didn't have to do it at all, but he ''did.''

* UnfortunateImplications: His review of "Anaconda" has tons of this. While his opinion on production and wordplay is valid, him basically calling Music/NickMinaj "another video hoe" is just comes off as being really shitty.

* ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars: He is generally against this, as he argues that rap's usage of this trope has saturated the scene and overshadows songs with legitimate messages. He says that every artist that gets some time in the limelight should do something worthwhile with that time. That said, he does use this defence for [[Music/LilJon Lil Jon]] due to the [[LargeHam large amount of enthusiasm Lil Jon displays on his songs]].
