“Rap is poetry. It’s thought-provoking, and it’s thought behind it, and there’s great writing in rap, as well,” he said while explaining what he wants readers to realize after reading his book, Decoded.
“I want people to also take away the quick judgment. Listen to the song. Listen to its intent,” he said.
