You never ready, forever petty minds stay petty

from Jay Z – 22 Two's Lyrics on Rap Genius


Similar sentiment to the “don’t throw pigs before swine” axiom:

This is a fitting line to put towards the end, too: the implication is that ‘petty minds’ will have a severely limited interpretation of these verses, absorbing only the surface-level (it’s just misogyny/shit-talking, it’s sensational, disposable entertainment, etc.).

Pnly a select few will understand all the technical complexity and substantial depth of the verses above (so if you’re reading this, welcome to the ‘elite’).
