* ColbertBump: Some may assert that {{Music/Lil B}} had this effect on Cruze's career.



* HymnToMusic: "I Hate Hip-Hop" from ''The Savage Beast 2'' could be considered this, but it mainly has to do with the culture of hip-hop rather than the actual music itself.



* TakeThat: In ''The Savage Beast 2'', Cruze takes shots at various rappers, including ASAP Rocky and Trinidad James, for their suspiciously fast and mysterious rise to fame. Some of the lyrics also seem to reference Chance the Rapper and in another song he calls out certain rappers for not taking their own music and personas seriously enough.



* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: ''The Savage Beast 2'', for the most part, has much simpler beats than it's predecessor and according the Cruze, the entire project is about making a statement, not fancy flows, metaphors, or production tricks.
