He's got quite a varied catalogue. He started out in the world of Detroit hip hop (with a hard rock edge) and put out a few, mostly forgettable (IMO), albums. In 1998, he broke through with a very hard rap rock album (for lack of a better term) that included the song AustinChief posted. His other pretty big song from that album (Bawitaba) sounded a little like Rage Against the Machine to me the first time I heard it.
But since then, he's moved toward more of a country and southern rock sound. A lot of it is mellower than his early stuff, although he still mixes in some barnburners as well. And some of it has a Bob Segerish (also from the Detroit area) feel to it.
I wouldn't be surprised if you were able to find something you like from him even if some of it might be way outside your taste zone.
