a word used in Lupe Fiasco's "Dumb it Down" where the lyric goes like this: You putting me to sleep nigga (dumb it down) thats why you ain't poppin in the streets nigga (dumb it down). It is a word that despite desperate searches on Urban Dictionary the meaning in that context cannot be found
Guy 1: I have no idea what "poppin" in Dumb it Down means.
Guy 2: It is because you're white.
Guy 1: Oh...do you know?
Guy 2: No, I'm white too.
Guy 1: Damn this elusive definition
