XL's style tends to fall into the uptempo, melodic sound typical of the West Coast region. He has cited DJ Quik, Battlecat, & Warren G.

as strong influences to this portion of his sound. He is also known to mesh this sound with the slower, bluesier feel of Houston rap, a la Devin The Dude or UGK, which Middleton is known to be a fan of. Middleton plays his own keys on his tracks, which often include complex piano riffs, driving bass lines, sharp horn stabs & wailing synthesizers. He is also known to employ the sounds of live guitarists & percussionists on his tracks, lending itself to a more musical feel than most hip hop music. He has collaborated with a wide range of artists which includes Crooked I, Sly Boogy, Bad Azz, Techniec, Down, Fingazz, Big Gemini, Young Keno, Foesum, Bigg Steele, Bo Roc of The Doveshack, The Twinz, & many others. He toured Japan in 2006, doing shows in cities including Tokyo & Yokohama.
