Heart of a pharaoh, soul of a scholar

Meaning

Ptahhotep was the son of a Kemetic (so-called Egyptian) Pharaoh who chose to be a scholar. He could have been a Pharaoh like his father, but, he chose the spiritual path and give the throne to his brother. He is credited with writing the oldest known complete book in the history of man.

Hip-Hop has always been a deliberate expression of education. Many rappers use the mic to showcase not only their intelligence but of those that have gone before them.
