Close your eyes you can smell
Hov’s the audio equivalent of braille
If you close your eyes and listen to Jay-Z, you feel as though you’re actually able to smell the coke he’s talking about. That’s pretty real!
Listening to him helps you smell the coke even if you can’t see anything, so the music is a lot like braille insofar as it brings understanding to people even if they’re sightless. Perhaps a more appropriate metaphor would be that he’s the “olfactory equivalent of braille”
