JPEGMAFIA makes confrontational, experimental rap that challenges both the left and right wings. His scathing lyrics target subjects including racist Internet trolls, hipsters, cops, and numerous rock and pop stars, calling out cultural appropriation as well as token nods to diversity. While unflinching and direct, his verses are delivered with a dark sense of humor; he sometimes evokes the perspective of the people he’s taking shots at without clarifying his intentions, potentially confusing the listener. His song titles, including “I’ll Never Forgive Hipsters for What They Did to Brooklyn” and “I Cannot Fucking Wait Until Morrissey Dies,” speak volumes.
