Liquid Swords - GZA
..I thought I was off the hook.
This God had traveled with me from C-Truth to the root. We ran into Ramel Supreme. During the course of us introducing ourselves he asked the God if he knowledged 120. The God answered in the affirmative. He then asked him what the Understanding Born degree of the 1-40 was. The God proceeded to stumble all over the degree pulling out maybe only 15% of the damn degree. I was stunned. I mean, I had been around the God a little bit, yet we didn't roll like that. I had no idea though that he didn't know his 120 though.
I was next. Ramel asked me the same degree. It rolled off my tongue like water..cause that's how I do. I was feeling real good right then. I built on it brief and I thought that was it. Man, Ramel Supreme let me have it. He was like, how come your man isn't as sharp as you. Now I was about to say..this isn't my man like that yet it would've been for naught. Sometimes you just have to learn how to keep your mouth shut and do the Knowledge, this was one of those times.
He basically let me knowledge that if I'm rolling with somebody then that's my brother. Who we roll with says EVERYTHING about us. And if I am sharp and my brother isn't sharp that ALSO says alot about me. Sometimes people ask me why I avoid certain people. I tell them "their character is revealed by who they hang with."
So if you're in this Nation and you're rolling with me..knowing your lessons ain't an option. I'm just letting you know up front.
