    I come from humble beginnings
    From a family with modest winnings
    Fortunate to have a momz and a popz
    While she fed me, he would school me
    Real meals with a side of reality
    Went to school as a mere formality
    Messed around so much, thought I’d never pass
    Never studied, kinda funny, finished top ten in my class
    1st lesson I learned on my own
    living status quo is like another zone
    was told by the masses, be like everyone else don’t think on your own
    As my frustration mounted, thoughts of mutilation discounted
    I asked myself how to get to the top of the mountain
    A So'ja steps to me and hands me a key
    B4 I ask, he tells me read it and see
    At first it had no meaning
    Matter of factly it gave me a mental beaning
    Time passes and I just keep reading
    Simplified the lessons as they apply to me
    Then it hit me, like a shot of amphetamines
    From that point on, ensued a mental revolution
    Which led to this self evolution
    Now my thoughts are my own
    Out of the zone, the status quo zone
    Another way to describe me is as “One of the keepers of the flame ”Ü
    Droppin REAL knowledge directly to the brain
    I love to see the look on people faces when they hear the straight facts
    That’s how I became E MAX

    (E Maximizes all information)


    With respect to the Kybalion “One of the keepers of the flame ”Ü

    yo dun it was already in you
    i just help the light get thru
    you know how we do
    the unlikely two
    the inner circle
    running thru
    in the Land coup
    on the troop

    yo thanks for the props but it's not necessary
    you know popz was ledgendary
    i know you feel me
    he deserve it especially

    cause he helped me too


    PEACE
    to my dun
    the only one
