And for the greater good I walk amongst the evil
Even Jesus had to walk amongst the tainted world, and surround himself with humans capable of sin, so that he must save them. J. Cole can’t lead the massess to prosperity if he can’t be on their level.
“Thou who has sinned shall not cast the first stone”
In essence it’s a metaphor explaining that J.Cole dumbs down his music for the greater good. Maybe if he reaches a wider audience they will discover his real shit.
