For Blow: Based on a True Story, Baby Bugsy takes much inspiration from the film of the same name. Like that film, Bugsy's lyrics are about getting paid -- doing whatever you need to do, be it selling coke or making rap music. His gangsta tendencies don't stop there, though. Bugsy raps about Cleveland, the Northern Ohio industrial city he represents, and the hardships involved with living there. Mac Dre offers lots of thumping beats, and Bugsy raps with a style quite similar to that of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Cleveland's most recognized rap act.
