I dumbed down for my audience to double my dollars
They criticized me for it, yet they all yell "holla"
Although I’m not quite sure I believe him, Jay-Z often claims that he originally intended for Reasonable Doubt to be his only album; a singular manifesto of rap
But when the album wasn’t particularly successful, commercially, he he made his lyrics simple so his audience could follow him.
After he made his lyrics simpler, he was criticized for doing so. But the people criticizing him are still buying his albums and going to his shows. “Niggas like my old shit, buy the old album”.
