Haven't listened to this is literally years. It's good, nowhere near the best in the genre, but a good listen.
I dumb down for my audience and double my dollars
They criticize me for it yet they all yell "Holla"
If skills sold truth be told
I'd probably be lyrically Talib Kweli
Truthfully I want to rhyme like Common Sense (But I did five Mil)
I ain't been rhyming like Common since
When your sense got that much in common
And you been hustling since, your inception, fuck perception
Go with what makes sense
Those lyrics are still some of the most honest I've ever heard on a major label hit album.
