Artist: Lupe Fiasco
Track: Dumb It Down
Producer: Soundtrakk
Album: Lupe Fiasco's The Cool

The reason why party tracks are so successful is because they are simple in nature.  The chorus usually consists of the same easy-to-remember lines; never multi-syllable words.  One artist though who refuses to follow such a pattern is Chicagoan, Lupe Fiasco.  His debut album, Food & Liquor, received critical acclaim for being unique and Fiasco doesn’t plan to change up styles on his upcoming sophomore effort, The Cool.  A potential song off the new album, Dumb It Down explores the usage of such elementary vocabulary in music today (see Jibbs).  Produced by in-house man Soundtrakk, the cut is a complex yet innovate way of storytelling.  Ya dig?
