But, the ones that ask the questions
They get no answers

Meaning

Emcees who focus on lyrical skills rather than what sells on the mass market are often times left as the traditional “starving artist.” As Hova once said, “I dumbed down on my audience to double my dollars, they criticize me for it yet they all yell holler”

This is a popular theme, reflected also in Lupe Fiasco’s Dumb it Down
