WOU is a look into the many sides of Megaciph; a few of the lenses through which I view the world. I present the song in three 8 bar stanzas with the first being an introspective voice, the second stanza is self reflective as well but from an external voice and the third verse is an omniscient voice commenting on society as a whole. I don't want to outright say what I think the song is about, I'd rather hear what you think it's about in the comments section. This superb footage was shot by my wife and my oldest son helped with camera setup and sound. We shot this video at the edge of the downtown Arts district in KCMO in front of the #LoveKansasCityWall mural by KC's own @Scribeswalk graffiti artist and teacher. From the icons on the wall to the gems in the song and the classic lighting and font used in the video edits this record is an homage to a time when everyone in Hiphop agreed that #LyricsMatter

Here's a little about me and the philosophy behind CodeSwitching that you won't get on my website or anyplace else: I am a Leo and very meticulous when it comes to how I present my art to the world. I recorded and re-recorded CodeSwitching 3 separate times before releasing it to the public. Each time I took the entire project home and listened to it for about two weeks before returning to the studio and changing it entirely. The final recordings for CodeSwitching from the lead vocals to the adlibs and song intros were all recorded in one single 2 hour studio session with monster engineer MAB of Industry Soundz in KCMO ... I am a one take jake.

lyrics

These are the reasons I rhyme (repeat rapping and singing)
Peace ... Unity ... justice ... Community .... love ..... joy .... family
Yo I'm a take it to the limit lay my life on the line I'm
Breaking night for inspiration Megaciph on the rhyme
I get these manic moments magic comes from making them mine
And taking the time to manage right my body and mind
I'm so elevated meditate to reach the divine
My daily demonstrations teach you each of you can align
The vertebra in the spine pituitary to shine
Over mountains we climb to reveal cloud nine
.....
Silver linings and gold dust these trappings don't hold us
I'm keeping it robust and she can get no lust
Material's so much controllers I go crush
The soul is no rush this hand I hold so flush
I wanna go grow kush and be known for dope hooks
And read some more Bell Hooks in general more books
And get less or more looks and let off of more hooks
Increase some more outcomes in other words outlooks
....
This is not how it looks this is just how it is
All our people ain't crooks you just killing our kids
How many lives get took and they don't do no bids?
How many eyes won't look at our perspective?
So I don't respect the system try to infect it
With these injections my sickness invented
Use my sixth sense with a hiphop intervention
To break down barriers cause an ascension
