inspirational lyric of the week: Dumb it Down

Song title: Dumb it Down | Artist: Lupe Fiasco

from the album: “The Cool”


“I’m peerless, that means I’m eye-less

which means I’m tearless

which means my iris resides where my ears is

which means I’m blinded…”

This song is a rebellious shout against mainstream music and Lupe’s inability to fit into that mold. Instead of playing the fame game and sending negative messages to young, black people in American, Lupe refuses. He says he is tearless–without regret or sympathy. And he is peerless–a double entendre on not having any real peers and also on not seeing a good reason to ‘dumbing down’ his music, his lyrics…and his musical calling.
