Enforced: "We need to hold our audience's attention, and we need characters and storylines they can relate to."
Lampshaded: "The family we can all relate to..."
Defied: The show is about a family that's far from normal, and the audience is OK with that.
Discussed: "Hey, they're just like my family!"
Conversed: "Somewhat dysfunctional, but yeah."
Deconstructed: If the family in the show is too normal, it might become boring; the viewers can already experience that in their own home, without turning on the TV. At the same time, if the family is not normal enough (i.e. too perfect or too dysfunctional), it might be hard for people to relate and enjoy. (And you can't ''not'' usetropes.)
Reconstructed: The show makes sure that the family is relatable, but still fun to watch. Any and all tropes it uses are used in ways that they're not cliche, but still can be understood by most people. The result? Multiple Demographic Appeal...and very high ratings.
Exaggerated: MC SixPac doesn't seem to have a vocabulary consisting of more than a few words (generally slang terms for drugs, money, expensive items, and crude terms for women and sex)...or more than a tenuous grip on reality as it applies to where he (purportedly) comes from.
Downplayed: MC SixPac makes comedy songs full of Toilet Humor and sexual innuendos. He'll sometimes put some clever sarcasm or a Genius Bonus into the mix, just to mix things up a bit.
Justified: MC SixPac wants to get rich (and pay off that large cash advance the record company gave him), and that means the quantity of records he sells trumps the quality of those records.
MC SixPac never once mentions having money, selling drugs, gang warfare, expensive items, or women and sex in any crass terms in his raps. In fact, he's so knowledgeable and grandiloquent that makes most Nerdcore artists seem pedestrian by comparasion.
MC SixPac raps about philosophy, quantum mechanics, politics, and the human condition.
MC SixPac is called that because he's a Nerdcore artist who's favourite topic is beer, and prefers not to deviate from his favourite topics.
MC SixPac raps about money, clothes and hoes... but it's not until you listen to what he's actually saying that you realise he's rapping about his gardening business.
MC SixPac's songs range from fun sex and party songs, to serious political music with occasional references to obscure and thought-provoking literature, to tunes with lyrics so cryptic and strange, that no one can really tell what he's rapping about; though, he encourages the fans to try to decipher them.
From Double Subverted #3, he seemed rather sarcastic when he said his songs were serious. Some people toke this to mean his songs are parodies though no one knows for sure.
MX SixPac is a satirist who never explains that he is one and makes seemingly serious statements as the nature of his rap. Poe's Law consistently hits people who think he is serious but his entire career is one elaborate stealth parody of the culture he was born in and makes fun of.
Averted: MC SixPac never once mentions "money, clothes, and hoes" in any of his raps.
"Quantity of album sales trumps the quality of the albums."
Exploited: MC SixPac wants his whole album to be rejected by his small record company for some reason, and he deliberately makes a sixpack of complex philosophy tracks, assuming his cousin's party anthem collection will be considered a better hit.
Defied: MC SixPac does not want to be decried as "just another sell-out" or a "run-of-the-mill One-Hit Wonder", so he puts a lot of thought into his raps.
Discussed: "Why do all these rappers seem to only rap about fast cars and fast girls? Don't they care about anything else?"
Conversed: "I'm sure they personally do, but the record label only cares about what will generate the most sales. And that means raps about fast cars and fast girls."
Reconstructed: MC SixPac raps about life, the universe and everything. Yes, he includes party anthems Just for Fun, but he shows that he has a brain and isn't afraid to use it. (And he doesn't give Hip Hop a bad name by glorifying drugs and violence, or by referring to women and sex in crass terms.) As a result, MC SixPac is respected and his album sales go through the roof.
