Here's a list of breakdowns of the variable and interrelative phrase structures Dilla used on Fantastic Vol. 2. You can clearly see a number of odd and creative (polymetric) juxtapositions of strucures as in track #s 4 (Jealousy), 9 (Forth And Back), 10 (Untitled/Fantastic), 12 (Get Dis Money)...

All of the interludes are absent (including that great 5-measure treat after 'Go Ladies').

That's why the post says "Geeks Only". Anyway, if you learn a little about music theory, it'll all be plain jane to you.
