As a vocalist, he is known to display a wide range of cadence, vocal tone, and texture- sometimes taking on a fictional character's accent. Boots Riley's work is known for its heartfelt, humorous, witty, optimistic lyrics with stylistically literary leanings. Some of his songs are very detailed and visually descriptive, earning him accolades as a story teller. Most of his works, although often about a personal experience (love, sex, broken-down cars, getting drunk, etc.), are tied to a radical class analysis of the current system and or situation. Some of his songs call for the overthrow of the ruling class by the working class. Riley is the only known musical artist whose surveillance by intelligence agents has been exposed due to Wikileaks documents.
