you obviously dont understand what I just said. Do songs like Dumb It Down, as dope as that song is, essentially say anything, its just a song with metaphor after metaphor, some real obscure ones as well, I dont mind breaking down songs and what not if the metaphorical meaning is something cohesive. Im a fan of Lupe, Hurt Me Soul, The Cool (song), He Say She Say Lupe > Metaphor heavy Lupe.
no Dumb it doesn't say anything but he's stated time and time again he crafted it like that on purpose because he was asked to dumb the fcool down on some pop music s**t or the label "might" not back the single so he re-wrote it and pushed it himself it just happened to catch fire cause for the most part it caught n*ggas off guard.

the song was never meant to define his album nor his career........I'm a fan of both Lupe's nice is nice whether he spittin to spit or spittin to enlighten, I don't think he's the best ever but he most def is the best out of all the new cats

Im not saying that what he does all the time, but IMO I think sometimes he overdoes the obscure metaphor thing which can take away from the fact that he is a really, really dope emcee. Nas doesnt even operate at a very high metaphorical level, I say this cause Nas is who he is often compared too. Lupe can learn from Nas approach to clarity, thats all I'm saying, I just think that he is closing himself off, cause when he does, IE Hurt Me Soul dude is at times peerless.
