I help them see they way through it, not you
Through his music, he helps people on the daily grind survive by the gritty truth in his music, instead of the average Joe who’s never experienced a day of hardship in their life.
In Decoded Jay explains this line saying; “Magazines, even hip hop magazines, would reduce a song to a rating, a number of mics or stars or some other system. But I always wondered how they could try to pin down and attach a rating to music that was really helping people understand their own lives. I always thought that critics should factor the truthfulness of the thyme. Truth is a constraint. It’s easy to make up a complete fantasy in a song. Trying to rhyme and be witty and tell a coherent story or talk about a coherent concept and stick to something true about life is difficult. But it’s that element of truth that makes the songs deeper than just entertainment, that make the music a light that can help people see their way through a hard life.”
