And y'all buy the shit, caught up in the hype
Cause the nigga wear a kufi, it don't mean that he bright
Cause you don't understand him, it don't mean that he nice
It just means you don't understand all the bullshit that he write

from Jay Z – Blueprint 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A kufi is a traditional African head-dress worn by men. It is frequently worn by elders usually to signify wisdom and knowledge.

Intricate lyrics is not a measure for intelligence. If you don’t get the meaning, it’s probably not that smart anyway.
This is directed at NAS and his use of “big” words.
