How many of you remember this song from the 90 's? The Lox ft. Lil Kim and DMX. The beat is one of those beats that bought everybody to their feet in the club or one that banged out the speakers of a 1998 Royal Blue Buick Century, with tinted windows, sitting on 26" rims as its cruising up and down the strip with the neighborhoods baller behind the wheel. I don 't know a single person that didn 't like this song. Matter of fact, I bet 9 out of every 10 people who come 's across this blog start 's singing the lyrics, and will maybe even start dancing a little bit, before they are done reading. Its okay....Do your thing. I got it playing in the background on repeat right now to set the mood for this blog, and I been jamming every since I…show more content…
In the book he uses a series of examples; wealth, wisdom, popularity, and pleasure. To show how each of them ultimately ends in disappointment IF it becomes the sole reason for your existence.

I 'd like to compare Solomon 's statement to that of Biggie and Diddy "Mo money ...Mo problems" .
