Very fed up with self appointed preservers of past eras
Who never see their reflection when they’re walking past mirrors
Kweli may be talking about those who have made it big off of some past successes and continue to define themselves by those accomplishments — rather than continuing to work and progress. He may also be referring to people don’t take the time to look within themselves for solutions for their problems.
