Few are amused by the dumbing down
I choose the underground
Thumbing down contracts fused by a number dial

from Mr. J. Medeiros – Tower of Cards Lyrics on Rap Genius


The dumbing down of Hip Hop, musically and lyrically, is not impressive to some- for those people, there is the “underground”.

Not accepting contracts which focus only on the number of records sold, youtube views, twitter followers, facebook likes-

Not impressed with labels, magazines, fans, etc. who are only after the aesthetic of Hip Hop, not the actual music/meaning- beyond hype.
