Songs like this point toward a more relevant direction for aging rappers than what's been offered up to this point (sorry Jay). Like dudes need to start being angrier, talking about joint pain, small apartments, cop hassles, and "the kids." Curmudgeony shit. SP and Thought are around the same age as Syl Johnson, "Cause I'm Black"'s sample source, for what it's worth.
Styles P f. Black Thought, "Cause I'm Black"
Syl Johnson, "Is It Because I'm Black?"
