Commentary:

There are currently a large number of styles based on the concept of swing and some, such as hip-hop, that mix binary and ternary concepts. Sextuplets are the key to mastering this type of combination, and in addition, this type of exercise will help you not only to familiarise yourself thoroughly with their form, but also to master all their accents and how to apply them in other places than just on the beat, an aspect that I have already mentioned as common to drummers with a restricted rhythmic style. This will help you to gain fluency and enrich your vocabulary.
