I started off trying to be the best but ended up finding out when I took care of the basics that was it. It was shit and while I joined everyone else time was just wasting. I mean I owned a car, a house and I owned myself at the age of 29 what the fuck was I going for.

What was I going for and what was I going to get? I could buy everything I want and relax. I know your thinking I came up short but I’m from Big Bad Los Angeles so I was getting it. It didn’t cost so much and since I wasn’t rolling with the fags I easily out maneuvered them. It’s all a show and once I figured that out I concentrated on the real.

Man its a CON to want more than the basics. Millions of us are in debt before we even start. We stack and build we don’t win the lottery the way its said to us. We don’t get job that will pay us right we get bullshit. We don’t get right in our 20’s, 30’s and even our 40’s we just our stuck paying our way forever. I’m just lucky that something paid for me and I was happy with nothing.

I could turn what I had at 29 over 10 times and beat everyone. I just had to learn that I couldn’t take exposure with me. All we want to do is make sure the next mfer knows it’s us. Talk about vanity we want motherfuckers we don’t even know to admire us!

I learned alot in the beginning of life. Glad I took my road instead of copying off of them. To this day I’m ahead of them because I stuck to my thoughts. I’m free for like 15 years because I took my way out at 29. Damn I was out there at 28 in Manhattan but in Atlanta at 35. Never paying anyone for where I slept. Damn a motherfucker from Compton made it because I never forgot I was poor. Then learned these motherfuckers ain’t rich. DAMN!

  1. Over the last several years, I’ve learned just how important it is to stick to the basics. And when you stick to the basics, you really don’t need much as much money as you think. I had to get to basics. Cutting the credit and sticking to cash.

    Sticking to the basics and not going for the McMansion, allowed me to leave the last corporate job and try some things out without having to worry about needing a big paycheck because my mortgage was the right price.

    Sticking to the basics allowed me stay home since March when the COVID thing started ramping up.

    It’s easy to get caught up in wanting to keep up with the Joneses, but then you have the bills that the Joneses have. Sticking with the basics and buying for quality, not quantity, allows for flexibility.

    • The Jones; never survive the recession. He had more that enough money but never thought but let me buy it he is always thinking about getting ahead. In fact we all think like that it was just with me I seen the bottom and decided I couldnt play that anymore.

      We all can win it’s just we have to do it today and fuck tomorrow. It’s the automatic way to get rich do it when you’re in you’re 20s. No matter how small you will be glad with that small house.

  2. Staying busy was and still is my cheat code to stacking. If I’m working I don’t have time to hit the mall. If I’m working I don’t have time to chill with people long enough to find out they frontin just like the last group of ppl I met. The funniest thing is I move to what ppl call the big city just to find out how small minded most people are no matter the size town they in. How distracted they are. How small their goals are, and how easy it is to lose focus. Many times I had to check myself and ask “wait a minute why do I give a fuck what they think and wtf does any of these thoughts have to do with the overall goal?!” And here I am rolling solo back focused staying busy.

    As cool as it would be to have all the things people lie and fake about, I realized all I really want is financial freedom, options of leisure, and peace of mind…

    Good to see you back man!
    Can’t wait to hear ya perspective on all the shit that’s been happening!
