Listen close you'll hear what I'm about
Nigga, feel my truths
Many people don’t understand Jay Z’s true message, and instead judge him off surface level interpretations of his lyrics. He later devoted an entire book, Decoded, explaining why his work is so much more meaningful.
Trying to rhyme and be clever and 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.
