Intelligence Meets Wisdom: Spoken Word by Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon put this together and it’s gone viral on Social Media. It’s spoken word entitled “Intelligence Meets Wisdom

Wanted to share the video along with the words below; so many nuggets in this!



Once upon an element, a man named Intelligence questioned his own relevance

While his new old friend Wisdom offered his benevolence

You could tell, It was evident, the 2 were a little hesitant

Because their respect and reverence for each other was obviously heaven sent

That’s when Intelligence asked, well why do we Hate

Wisdoms rebuttal

well why do we Love

Intelligence wondered what will become of his fate

While Wisdom just embraced each day just because

Now Intelligence can prove how much he knows

But Wisdom shows how much he grows

Though, Intelligence spends time searching for God

Wisdom sees that time, is merely a fraud


They both chose while out on job, to put their pros, cons and pride aside


Because The power of rivals subsides if the powerful rivals died

Wisdoms Crew was like ooh… Right Right!

While Intelligences entourage just sighed oh My My !

So Is yall Bout it bout it or is u a ride or die

Because Wisdom knew only the true tried to be wise

Intelligence replied, Nigga you ain’t never lied!

But it was something about these guys, they will not ever sever ties

Alone they could marvel but together they mesmerize

Materialized metomorphisis more opposites incorporated & attracted than they actually realized


For instance,

Intelligence was manmade, And Wisdom is a Spirit

Intelligence is loud, But The Sound of wisdom, must be silent to hear it

Intelligence is witty and quick

While Wisdom is peaceful and still

Intelligence can be Artificial

When Wisdom is real.

Day and Night, Back and forth, they can debate turn for turn but if you understand one without the other Further quandaries will forever burn

But for now this intelligent case is closed And the wise meeting of the minds is adjurned

While the Blind has been leading the blind With frivolous concerns, We find that the true 3rd eye lies intertwined between 2 universes of no return

Interned, these two terms will eternally be on good terms, In terms of the interim

The definitions have definitely and definitively been turned…

Intelligence – the ability to learn

Wisdom – the ability to discern

Your turn!

Now, let me be the first to say that I do not know if Nick Cannon wrote this or simply read it and it was originally written by someone else. If someone else put together this awesome bit of Spoken Word, I applaud whomever that may be. We cannot have one, without the other. Intelligence and Wisdom go hand in Hand!

I meet a lot of intelligent people who lack wisdom. Many of them get offended if you dare suggest they do not know what they think they know. Wise people know what they know as well as what they do not; and they take no offense when someone else notices; in fact most wise people will point out what they don’t know upfront. Intelligent people will try to pretend to know things they do not know; because they ‘think’ it’s intelligent.

The Bible in Proverbs 4:7  states that in all ones ‘getting’ one should seek to get understanding.

Oddly enough, I don’t say that as if the Bible is the only source of truth – OR understanding; as I wrote about in ‘Finding Truth: Intelligence and Wisdom‘ while piggybacking off of points made by Dr. Phil Valentine (two of his videos are featured). Check those out. When Intelligence Meets Wisdom, oh what a World that will be!  Thanks for dropping by –
