Track Name: PSA
Verse 1
I’m in a jet flying overhead bombs dropping on ya brain
Megaciph a traveler these tracks’ll never be the same
The whole game changed if you ain’t sleep peep the structure
Most of you rappers will not survive my puncture 4
Prepare for departure I’m here on arrival
All eyes on me but I am not the rival
I am what the knife do or what the strap get
The tongue stay sharp and I’m guaranteed respect 8
I give what I get respect is how I’m living
This is my announcement I will never give in
This is public service and that’s what I am giving
A voice for my people no choice for my living 12
So find me in the field until the game is done
With a plowshare and shears and two chairs in the sun
Take my peers to the next with the rapture I lift
This is rap for the mature now clap for the mother ship 16
Verse 2
Get your passports ready we going overseas with this one
International I got a brand new son
Got to show him how the world work take him on a trip
They say I’m tripping but they ain’t even seen shit 4
I had to get a new book my old one was full of it
Stamps and visas with a mark for the militant
This is not a fingerprint this is where the real has been
Banging with my fire team faithful to my citizens 8
Semper Fi ooo rah! And I could kill again
You a meal ready to eat and I could feed again
Prolly won’t fill me with your whole crew of silly men
I’m a stout man but known to down a Killian’s 12
So let’s take a flight is it whiskey or beer?!
From Japan to Korea with the soju I see ya
I’m sober with beer goggles on and no fear
Yeah I’m here to fight like Mike on ya ear 16
And talking ain’t my sport I walk it out the same
Like chalk lines encircling the bodies that are claimed
In this dirty dirty game from Paris to the Bay
I got fam in the Rhone take it to the golden gates 20
And just in case you want to get all gnarly
Like every brother with locks wanna be Bob Marley
I been to the Motherland stayed in Shashemena
And I’m going back to Africa cause y’all ain’t ready! 24
Track Name: Electric Relaxation
Verse 1
Put the bat trees in and push the button
Take a little pull and you will feel something
You say you don’t feel it we know you bluffing
Bill didn’t inhale? way was he puffing?? 4
Like Barack said, “yo that’s the point!”
Do you like the bong the blunt or the joint?
Do you lick the L or wet your fingers?
Light em back to back or let it linger? 8
Not for beginners let’s vaporize
My whole crew’s winners we don’t tape the eyes
Stay live keep building and chase the highs
Make a plan to help the nation legalize 12
Supply side economics seek and you’ll find
No better way to make a sinking one suddenly thrive
They say I’m crazy or a Luniz if I’m giving you five
Just doing what I can to keep the culture alive 16
Got a one hit bat with a grind on the side
I keep her full with that good like the color of lime 18
Verse 2
When I have a little time I like to open my eyes
I mean I close my eyes and I open my mind
You see the possibles are infinite like souls in time
I got this life and I’m living it and shaking the vine 4
Yo we’re fucking divine so I’m shaking the tree
Cause that’s one truth that nobody told me
Yo smoking weed is fine it set ya mind free
So break ya paradigm and break a dime with me 8
I’ll break it down you’ll see its nothing but a herb
Meant to spice up ya life and flavor your nerves
Make ya savor what you heard and it could save your herd
And it’s never taken a life just say if you’ve heard 12
Otherwise I’ll supply just sit back and observe
Since man recorded time man smoked herb
Cannabis was used for the first paper on Earth
Wait up what you think cave women used to ease birth? 16
Did man invent the wheel or fire first?
C’mon it don’t take genius to see what the plants worth
From America’s birth her first mandated crop
Watch Hemp for Victory tell the mad men to stop 18
Its at the top of the schedule above cocaine
With no therapeutic use - man that’s fucking insane!!
We all know if you got cancer it’ll ease your pain
They got us running from the cure Rick Simpson fame 20
Mary Jane heals cells and inhibits mutation
Cannabis oil to cancer eradication
So don’t take that pill full of radiation
Or believe that reefer madness will destroy the nation 24
It’s just greedy corporations and conspiracy facts
You see the real threat ain’t how would they tax weed
It’s that industrial hemp gives us everything we need 27
Track Name: No Money No Problem
Chorus (2x)
No money no problem more or less
From the failing schools to stop and frisk checks
Food deserts unemployment debt and stress
Kids bruised and neglected and left a mess
Verse 1
I got million dollar dreams and billion dollar plans
With 5 dollar friends and 10 dollar fans
I get more than at my job with an open hand
Standing on the street corner with an open can 4
It’s just hopeless man they said I dream too big
ThatsGoodness? you can’t do what Bad Boy did!
A nonprofit is lame you need Wall Street bids
I want to change up the game, make it safe for the kids 8
So I aim for the stars every bar I spit
Intergalactic lit up like zirconium chips
A got a massive … debt on a degree that sits
While I make waves and leave footprints 12
In the sand wondering how long they’ll last
It’s sad but true, promise not to laugh
(Promise not to laugh) I’m scared of success
So I don’t even try to blaze my own path 16
Chorus (2x)
No money no problem more or less
From the failing schools to stop and frisk checks
Food deserts unemployment debt and stress
Kids bruised and neglected and left a mess
Verse 2
I know just what these vampires want from me (bloodsuckers)
Less money in the bank more debt on the card
Repo car foreclosed sign in the yard
A habit and kids so I gotta go hard 4
They want to get me in the yard off a bad decision
Like I’m maxing with no arms head on collision
So much precision on this instrument
Music to your ears to their detriment 8
A rapper that don’t celebrate chains and ice?
Nah I rap about justice and human rights
There’s a lot of us Emcees keepers of the light
Spit for the cause like the freedom rides 12
Why lie in my rhyme I never moved weight
Chopped coke or bagged rocks most rap is fake
Promoting false images stereotypes blatant
Just wait ‘til they answer to Paul at the gates 16
Chorus (2x)
No money no problem more or less
From the failing schools to stop and frisk checks
Food deserts unemployment debt and stress
Kids bruised and neglected and left a mess
Verse 3
Okay most in the world are living check to check
Nah, most … ain’t even got a check to get
So I boast at shows how much I collect
Is it inspiration or disrespect? 4
Your house on my neck and that’s just one
I own too many to wear that’s just dumb
How about investing back in the hood where I’m from?
To the very same folk that made this plat-in-num 8
But to this plot I’m numb from smoke ‘til lungs pop
What I got from no pops like most on the block
And my emotions are blocked so I’m over the top
The rising tide verse old sea locks 12
I’m talking ‘bout change in some major ways
Most see an old man with locks and grays
They want to put him away or label him
Well I’m angry and black now let’s begin 16
Chorus (2x)
No money no problem more or less
From the failing schools to stop and frisk checks
Food deserts unemployment debt and stress
Kids bruised and neglected and left a mess
Track Name: Chain em to the Wall
[Verse 1]
Chemtrails and conspiracies theories or facts
Overpopulation the Earth lacks harmony
Operating dysfunction are most forms of government
These are fictions that are real the secret is kept 4
Very close to the top where the power resides
Corruption is absolute and never spares
Lives when they choose light souls when they resist
Choices are made under pressure and duress 8
Fractured stressed splintered society
Swallowed by sinkholes abducted disappeared
Erased from the face of the Earth without a trace
What’s worse is what’s feared is what’s of the Earth 12
Packaged products sanitized on the shelves
So neatly displayed arrayed and X-rayed
Downgrade a country it’s all see through hype
These are serious times private satellites launch 16
[Chorus] 1X
Move on a record baby money make it chart
Get em butt naked working in the lab fine art
Chain em to the wall or let the building fall
Product is the same Fifth Ave to Wal-Mart
II Call it pestilence and pain pulling at your heart
Plenty strings and games bullied from the start
Chained to the wall while the building falls in
Cause if we stop buying it all falls apart :II
[Verse 2]
Polyester and rayon have replaced the wool
As natural fibers quote un quote
Our landfills are full so we load it on the boats
And dump it off of unprotected coasts 4
Epidemics of refugees of wars over water
Indoctrinated and labeled as pirates and shot
Mutinous actions all viewed in live action
Against mother Earth on the nightly news 8
Never … ever … worthy … stories
The mundane is downplayed celebrate the insane
Ridicule Dick and Jane fuck! their opinions
Conform. Modern industry don’t cause fish kills 12
Like multinationals don’t make economies crumble
With tax free zones and poverty wages
Loopholes outrageous all standards are doubled
White collar criminals kill millions and walk 16
[Chorus] 1X
Track Name: Free My Health and Try
Doctor, doctor on the call
Tell me, doctor, what’s this for
Why can’t I afford my bills?
And what’s more I have a job!

What I ask ain’t so far fetched
Other countries run it fine
When it comes to my healthcare
Let’s just free my health and why

Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why

Health insurance won’t pay this
Health insurance won’t pay that
You say I need to be insured
I say what you cover’s crap

They claim their coverage is the best
But my claims they flat deny
So when it comes to my healthcare
Let’s just free my health and why

Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why

Proud, I’m proud of what I am
Words I speak bring truth to light
Ask and see my viewpoints count
Americans they think I’m right

Human rights this is the issue
ThatsGoodness its main mission
Helping all achieve good healthcare
We make our cause and our giving

Benefits and festivals
You can find us organize
Help us when you say this line
Let’s just free my health and why

Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why

The pursuit of happiness
Happiness for all of us
But happiness is not allowed
By the system and here’s how

Lawyers make a case a crime
With litigation on the mind
Doctors cover their behind
And run tests like assembly lines

Big insurance pinches tight
Won’t pay this and won’t pay that
But doc wants pay for doc’s time
So doc’s bill must blow the mind

And down the line the bucks get passed
To the ones without the dough
So when it comes to my healthcare know
let’s just free my health and why

Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why
Let’s just free my health and why
Track Name: What Up Real Life
ThatsGoodness (what)
we in here (what)
we get the love going
cuz we really care (what, what)
its going down (what)
Cause I’m around (what)
Megaciph, you know I don’t mess around

[Chorus] 2X
What up mamas?
What up papas?
What up kids?
What up real life?

[Verse 1]
Wake early in the morning get my kids dressed
nah first I cook breakfast the spouse is impressed
we eliminate stress in my household I confess
through good food communication and sex 4
always keeps the best relationships together
more than money what’s real will last forever
and our children ain’t stuck to the screen all day
study time, HomeWork, before dinner they play 8
this is real life, and this what most of us live
no matter where we come from we want more for our kids
I’m talking college funds, savings plans, matching amounts
I want the four car garage and immaculate house 12
for what’s coming out the mouth the love I spout
gives me power in every house that’s no doubt
I got a blessing and lord knows I’m using it right
Igniting the mic I’m Midas when I spit and I write mama16

[Chorus] 2X
What up mamas?
What up papas?
What up kids?
What up real life?

[Bridge]
We run this
We run this
We run this (ThatsGoodness)
We got culture sound

[Verse 2]
money power and respect drugs sex and pain
its funny how these images get stuck in the brain
they don’t move by themselves like cars switching lanes
there’s people in control with the power to change 4
rap critics say I’m lame they say my market is small
they say you only want to dream about having it all
But I won’t have it at all gotta give you my all
that’s at all costs all the time ‘til the last call 8
and I’m an old soul that’s a long time to go
head to head blow for blow show to show
you’ll never hear me sell out for fortune and fame
I love Hiphop too much Megaciph is the name 12

[Chorus] 2X
What up mamas?
What up papas?
What up kids?
What up real life?

[Bridge] 4X
We run this
We run this
We run this (ThatsGoodness)
We got culture sound
Track Name: Wrong Love
Chorus (1x)
For all the girls that had the wrong love from daddy
And all the boys that saw him beating mommy
Sorry are his actions, acceptance or reflect
Relationship mistakes broken houses can’t correct 4
For all the ones that daddy’s love did not protect
And those of us that saw mommy disrespect-ed
For all the babies that know daddies as a check
Seeking safety from the threat of houses in a wreck 8
Verse 1
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Would you fly, have super strength or … telepathy?
You could use it to run, fight back or see what’s coming
Escape, defend your loved ones or be more cunning 4
Mentally outgun him emotional disarmament
No peace treaties exist in a terrorist’s apartment
Where’s the youth coalitions and the neighborhood watchmen?
To stand up for kids subjected to shock doctrine? 8
Poverty’s not the problem just more likely it makes it
A tarnished childhood and no class escapes it
From the highest tax brackets to the working starving
Domestic abuse is an unspoken problem 12
Adults appear like mountains to their young victims
Insurmountable objects supposed to pass on wisdom
Instead pass on fear hate and misconception
About the healthy roles meant for men women and children 16
From gender subjugation to sexual orientation
Obesity?! Yo these are heavy problems we facing
Seventeenth in education with the most owners of guns
A bunch of dummies that love violence and think killing is fun America
Chorus (1x)
For all the girls that had the wrong love from daddy
And all the boys that saw him beating mommy
Sorry are his actions, acceptance or reflect
Relationship mistakes broken houses can’t correct 4
For all the ones that daddy’s love did not protect
And those of us that saw mommy disrespect-ed
For all the babies that know daddies as a check
Seeking safety from the threat of houses in a wreck 8
Verse 2
You cannot forget the pain you’ve seen when you come from it
A place like no other place kicks to be comforted
Planted in your stomach kids blossoms that are vomited
The sickness in beds with flowers where so much violence lives 4
Imbalance in the head disease that gets spread
Generation after generation poorly fed
On that white bread Kool Aid TV and pain
Nourish me with love not a bat to the brain 8
I’m about to go insane got me cutting close to veins
Switching lanes while I’m drunk hundred fifty one flames
Just to step out … and escape the fire
That temper at home makes me walk the high wire 12
Over razors when he’s drinking swear that he’s no longer thinking
Last week he beat my brother until he was barely blinking
And I really hate the weekends if you could imagine
Friday’s day one of a three day rampage 16
Living with a madman is this what God made?
Is this one man made?
What obscure rule have I disobeyed? … Now
That always changes to ease your pain 20
Chorus (1x)
For all the girls that had the wrong love from daddy
And all the boys that saw him beating mommy
Sorry are his actions, acceptance or reflect
Relationship mistakes broken houses can’t correct 4
For all the ones that daddy’s love did not protect
And those of us that saw mommy disrespect-ed
For all the babies that know daddies as a check
Seeking safety from the threat of houses in a wreck 8
For all the girls that had the wrong love from daddy.
