Numbers And Letters featuring Rome Supreme
First you gotta get the knowledge and then get the wisdom. The understanding is that you can’t be a victim. The culture turned me to a man on a mission making power moves striving to get my hands on a million. Equality, got me thinking family and children. The God in me is deeper than the brand that I’m building. I was built to destroy these niggas and then rebuild’em. Born from a beautiful mother poppa was brilliant. The knowledge of the cipher got me on some keep it real shit. If she knowledge knowledge you know me I probably killed it. My word is my bond if you knowledging my wisdom. Military training. Dollars and them pistols. You know me I’m like a captain. To be a master, it takes knowledge and understanding. Knowledge the culture, and who the man is. Originally upon the planet. I knowledge power, and said I really gotta have it. But can’t pursue it like a savage. Knowledge equality, and then we spread it cross the planet. Now they knowledge god and the plan is, to use my knowledge to build until I’m mad rich. Catch me making knowledge born on your local campus. Now I’ts wisdom ciphers. I’m about to cash in. Catchme on square when I’m dealing with a bad one. You gotta wisdom knowledge if you really wanna grasp it. When I was wisdom wisdom found out I was a magnet. Kept my 22 for the drama I attracted. 23s on plus the women say I’m handsome. Fell likeI’m romantic. Got wisdom understanding. I was born like this already understanding. But I wisdom culture. Seems like I enhanced it. Now I wisdom power, and keep like wisdom planets.
Allah founded this nation just so that we could be born into this life somewhere on the family tree. Eyes wide open realizing that you once were blind. But now you see yourself for what we are. Divine. Recognizing that equality between the son of man and the father. We both God. Separate together over space and time. Trust this. That’s why me and mine, he and I are both Justice. A seed is a seed same knowledge different application. Teach him to lead his family like a King of a civilization. The sun gotta shine bright, even in the night. For the love we go through hell just to get it right. Free your mind from that slave mentality. Master yourself to improve your reality. No time to wait, bring the nonsense to a end right now so the healing of your nation can begin. Every person place or thing in the cipher touched by the live know they dealing with a lifer. My daughters got my power cause it’s never unseen. So when they knowledge Gods he’ll be dealing with a Queen. She not easily fooled smart and strong enough to rule. You could never enslave her they’re their own self saviors. Ya better save yourself with the truth or square biz they’ll hit you with the proof til you know what time it is. You out here in the universe and aint nothing new. The key to victory is know your history. Long as that wisdom remains unknown That’ll be why you zig and zag trying to find you way home. Ricocheting all over like ping ping ping. But we back like a boomerang that was just flinged. Soon as you get your bearings everything is everything that’s why zig zag zee means understanding.
