I started listening to dumbfounded again. This man is pure genius... I have friends who are off to university, and I should be too, but for reasons I couldn't. I'm afraid to grow up and I always listened to his song "Peter Pan Complex" and because of this, I feel even motivated to continue on marching forward through my school work and be successful. Love dumbfounded. Thank you.

PNW_PsilocybeJedi
Actually according to corporations, fans are just statistics and profit
TokenSB
used to be called just "hip hop" but now you have to look for real hip hop\underground hip hop.
TokenSB
this beat is very kanye 'wastly'
tehnoobshewo
this is a sad story if you listen to the lyrics or even watch the video, kind of scary just shows you were all age, so while you got time do big things no days wasted.

I'm so glad you're blowing up!! Been subbed for a couple of years now dude!
Raymond Arroyo
This goes both ways. Don't assume that everyone likes his "growing young" esque songs. Your comments which seemed very fair and somber, were actually charged because it dismisses the fact that both comments were arrogant attempts at pinpointing what fans like. Both are claiming to speak for most fans.
Blackstripe Rok
i feel like he drew my life
MrHellowassup
I love the album name 'Take the Stares' taking the stairs, but taking those stares. damn play on words.
SlowZetta

Mim Zy

Bounn1974
He just drew his life
Chris Granado
i agree with you people are saying they dont like his other shit but he doesnt give a fuck he likes what he does so thats what he makes if he is gonna be doing whatever people like he might as well sell out and be like lil wayne. he chooses what he wants not the people
MrCutMeLoose
well this hits pretty close to home
Moonpie

Alex Parker

Philippe Bergeron

I know most people will just skip over this, but Im doing this for those wholl actually read on. Im a rapper, God has blessed me with a gift and all I want is to share it. All I have is my dream, I cant afford to pay for ads, I dont know anyone in the industry, and most of the people around me only half-listen to tracks, so I’m not given any recognition as a rapper. If you can, please check out my music on my channel. Love and peace all day, God bless.
Kevin Yang
so many fans are ignorant to his meaning and songs -.- but people just need to grow like this song... i love teh music dumb keep it up no matter what people may say let your rhythm flow
Kevin Yang
actually i love those songs and his life lesson songs a artist should not stick to one type of rap he should let his skills flow and rap about whats on his mind... i bet he wouldnt have as many fans if he never did those songs...
Jesse t

Liam Orchard

Moises Acosta
ahh oh shit i think its "herd em say" by kanye west ft adam levine. thats the closest thing i can think of
Moises Acosta
you herd it before too huh?? i cant put my finger on it
hideo kojima
Those songs are nice but it's good that dumb keeps a variety cause then it would have just all been the same old shit, sides he's writing what he comes up with the reason why "growing young' is so great is cause it's the only song that gives you this feel.
Smartie Sukko
thanks dumb! for being real rap
