Quote to consider

"I dumbed down for my audience to double my dollas
They criticize me for all yet they all yell holla"

it's like mike tyson dumbing down for his audience by biting what's his name's ear.

Is this your new business model?

We've always had one foot on the stupid side of the street, and I hate the sound of the crickets whenever we publish something with a taste of literary ambition, but I don't see the business model changing any time soon.

I just like Jay-Z is all.

Nothing wrong with a little stupid.

Nothing like an artist that insults his audience by "dumbing down" and then puts out a record telling them he dumbed down for them.
In his defense, it went platinum, I think.
Can't dig Jay-Z. I'll fill my rap needs with the old school. NWA, Ghetto Boys.
Damn it feels good to be a gangster.

when you have nothing left to prove (or lose) you prove you can't lose your audience even if you try.

like the omniscient being having nothing else to accomplish but destroying himself.
