Tropes Eye:

  • An Aesop: “Humility” is about how people need each other and the damaging effects of isolation, which can be caused by pride.
  • Horrible Hollywood: “Hollywood” is a downplayed example; the song repeatedly juxtaposes the bright promises and temptations from the titular city with a more skeptical outlook, finding it far more dark, materialistic, and manipulative in reality, especially since it encourages a culture of envy where people will step on each other in a rise to the top. However, none of the artists involved deny the allure of Hollywood, and Snoop Dogg claims that the base problem of envy can be overcome by those who make the effort. Ultimately, Jamie Principle’s verses split the difference by saying that Hollywood has everything you could ever want, but also everything you don't.
