Tropes appearing in this album:

  • Arc Words: “Keep faith, my nigga” throughout the album.
    • A non-descript “Brodie” figure also appears in two of the songs.
  • Darker and Edgier: In a rather shocking way, Some Rap Songs is this to all of Earl’s already-dark previous works, due to Earl’s Creator Breakdown affecting the album’s production, making it an extremely personal experience for those who listen to it.
  • Miniscule Rocking: None of the songs go over three minutes, and exactly two are over two. The album as a whole is less than 25 minutes long.
  • Advertisement:
  • Stylistic Suck: The mixing and mastering is intentionally muddy and glitchy.
  • Textless Album Cover: It features a distorted picture of Earl’s smiling.
