Lyrically he's inconsistent -- his subject matter is scattered & it irks me for whatever reason. He'll be goin off on one thing, insert a random line & then either switch completely or go back...

Ok, he is deep lyrically so I can see why you think that.

No offense but that's a cop out & not a good one at that. His subject matter is not so deep that I can't see the connections. Let me show you what I mean, let me go grab an example...

Let's take the second verse of Pineal Gland for example...

The black sheep running with a pack of wolves
Diamond in the rough, tell Brock I need a pack of woods
Two white cups full of codeine
Plus I got two whites.luts down to blow me
Can't you see I'm floating, like root beer and ice cream
I get this, sounds a bit like SbQ in this verse (especially with that last line). Then to this...

My synapses act like lightning, probably why I'm so enlightening
Probably why these n*ggas can't fu-k with me
I'm lookin like "who the fu-k invited them?"
They failed in testing like whats inside of them
Random line to begin this portion. If it's supposed to be deep like you said then the codeine he's drinking suppresses his endorphins, meaning his synapses wouldn't act like lightning.

Anyway the next 3 lines seem out of place, especially that last line. But I digress, on to the rest...


(Soulo, Soulo) Say it like you mean it
My demeanor is the meanest, I'm gettin meaner by the minute
Its mine, I spend it, my mind is spinning
Your time is ticking, the sky's the limit
Aside from the first 2 lines the last 2 lines don't really have a true connection, they're just lines that rhyme...

We in a space where matter don't matter
Just spirit molecules and geometric patterns
sh-tted in a crater last time I sat on Saturn
Got a letter from Andromeda, they tryna shrine my bladder
I suppose this is why you call him "deep" but I'm not impressed. You're high, describing the place you're in, yeah I get that. Then you speak on defecating on planets which isn't that much of an "enlightened" topic.

I just don't see the allegory. Don't misinterpret a combination of seemingly abstract concepts with profundity. Call this reaching if you want but this is how I see & hear it...

Nevermind, you got the lyrics from rap genius...

But again I didn't say he said that, they did. One line doesn't nullify the rest of my analysis though...

I'm not trying to nullify your a.ssessment of his 2nd verse, ok let's say I like his thought process.
