Artistry is always at the forefront of Pemberton's endeavors. In his song “Small Deaths” he raps about "my exaggerated diary of several half-events" -a line rich with both history and meaning. “I should explain, it's a literary reference to (Jean-Paul) Sartre," he says. "I love the idea of recontextualizing (literature) into rap -it’s the same thing Jay-Z does when he uses a Biggie line, he’s changing the context of something.”
