Critics are really the enemy and I
Can't stand the way they slam today's gifted

from Tech N9ne (Ft. Kendall Morgan, Kendrick Lamar & ¡MAYDAY!) – Fragile Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This line speaks silent but very deadly. It’s said slowly to catch attention to show clearly he hates how rappers with talent get watered down to sell records. Tech N9ne is his own man, he writes whatever he wants. It’s his label after all. Kendrick even speaks about his own critics in his verse later in the song, meaning this line could be about himself:

And journalists involved should’ve known my music

Wale’s latest album, The Gifted, received a 5.1/10 by Pitchfork and a 65/100 on Metacritic.
