Here is a slightly amusing non-modest statement from his Wikipedia page...
Some of Mosley's influences include David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Roxy Music, Killing Joke, Motown, Michael Jackson and Black Sabbath. His rock/rap singing style has been cited as an influence by successful rap rock and nu metal groups such as Korn, Disturbed, and Limp Bizkit. Regarding the rap rock genre, Mosley stated in 2017 "I would say I am the originator. Some will argue and say the Chili Peppers, and I will say, “No, that was funk.” Some will say the Beastie Boys, and I’ll say, “No, they were playing punk rock, then they started playing the beats, then they started playing the rock."
