I'm fearless, now hear this, I'm earless

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Gemini) – Dumb it Down Lyrics on Rap Genius


Release the extended metaphor!

Lupe is “earless” yet he wants you to hear what he’s saying—the first of many paradoxes the come.

“Now hear this” is an archaic set phrase used to introduce longer perorations.

Later on he talks about not having any mainstream ears or listeners. But he wants you to listen.
