Those songs -- which are like 2 or 3 out of 16 if I remember correctly, compared to those whose are every track -- are him looking back at himself and mocking the stereotypical misogyny that exists in some hip hop. If you ever want to, you should check out the story behind all of the lyrics on the album. It's conceptual. His mind is really incredible.

Also Glassjaw, anyone? haha.

Glassjaw? Huh?

Everyone always associates hip hop with misogyny as if that's all it's about, but non-hip hop music never gets scrutinized in the same way. Darryl's lyrics in the past, at least, have been pretty degrading whether poetic or personal.


Gotcha, I missed the context of what his Glassjaw comment was about. EYEWTKAS had some mysogynistic lyrics but thats what made it such a powerful break-up album. It captured that moment of anger and heartbreak where all reason, common sense, and political correctness leave and you are left with just poor hate.
