We’re trapped, and moving round in circles like it’s Chapstick
Lupe will never want to dumb down his lyrics for the masses, and major record labels will always want to sell more records, leading to a never ending cycle until someone gives in. Usually, the label wins.
This also deals with what the music industry is going though, repetitive dance music that is destined to stay that way until someone breaks the trend.
This never-ending circle is the same shape as Chapstick.
