You're better than this. Because "Life is Good" didn't win a grammy, means it didn't have lyrics with content that can apply to your average man's life? While Jay's been rapping about having mad money, not driving a car, buying paints, vacationing in other islands and the same BS after all these years.
Let me simplify this for you...one artist has grown musically, one artist has grown financially.
The music business hate me 'cause the industry ain't make me
Hustlers and boosters embrace me And the music I be making
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 wanna 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 hosteling since
Your inception **** perception Go with what makes sense
Since I know what I'm up against
We as rappers must decide what's most important
And I can't help the poor if I'm one of them
So I got rich and gave back To me that's the win, win
The next time you see the homie and his rims spin
Just know my mind is working just like them
(The rims that is)
