What if someday an entire population was enlightened enough to withhold from participating in their local elections? What would that day look like and what would be the ramifications for everyone involved? Explore how the people free themselves from tyranny via non-violent means and how the politicians ...
Download Blood On Ya Hands by CTRAFFIK. In honor of the most patriotic of all patriotic American holidays celebrating patriotic American acts I give to you this latest single from “Rushed Again 2“! The hook was inspired by the events in Fallujah, Iraq Dec 2004. The concept was also inspired ...
Download Freedom Like pretty much all of my songs, this one is based on true events. Namely, the dreaded act of being “pulled-over” by the police for breaking some random victim-less road crime. It feels like its more of a shake-down for government revenue than actually keeping the roads ...
Download Break Em I’m not sure if I was drunk at the time but I told someone that I would actually tattoo the first verse of this song on my back just because I like it so much. Its like the track wrote itself. My favorite line was “They gun running the continents, don’t give […]
Download Another track from the “Rushed Again 2″ album, produced by Ronnie Beck. Its based on the original concept of the hit single Mind Money (I call it a hit because it gets downloaded thousands of times off my server… candela!). Originally Ronnie sent me the beat with the acapella ...
Download This track was a complete loquera from the start. Don’t know what got into me but I created the hook and verses fairly easy. This was recorded back in the days at the Songo Sounds Studio in Kendall. The beat is by Edgar Matta and the voice on the hook is by a girl […]
Download “Sick Hook” This is a track that was inspired by my life in more ways than one. I must have put this Pete Rock instrumental on a CD during the planning stages for a new mixtape for Tha Union. I came up with a crazy hook for the track (seriously) – it was really […]
Download This is the classic CTRAFFIK and Caliba street anthem that was inspired by the fans. Whenever we’d be out promoting on the street or performing at our shows, the crowds would chant “Tha Union is on Yo Blocc!” After a while we figured it would be a great chorus idea. On this ...
Download Ever since Nas called out Jay-Z for getting ripped by Eminem on his own track, any emcee worth his weight needs to make sure not to collabo with Slim Shady unless you got a hot verse. I also wanted to give the track the Spanish Hip Hop treatment while matching Eminem with a sick […]
Download This has got to be one of my favorite tracks ever because its so personal. First off, I looped a sample from Sade’s song “King Of Sorrow“. Everything that Sade drops I buy and I had always hoped to rip one of her tracks. Secondly, the two verses speak about actual people I ...
Download Here is a classic from my debut album The BumRush. I can still remember the day when I made this beat, writing the lyrics and the hook just came naturally sine the track was so crazy. On iTunes and Napster this song has become one of the most popular tracks off The BumRush. I […]
Download This was the lead track from the Block Politics Mixtape hosted by DJ Epps. It was an official warning shot that Tha Union would no longer promote the “Ready 2 Strike” mixtape series. That particular DJ who was using the title pretty much stopped using it as well right after this ...
Download This song is from the Block Politics mixtape featuring DJ Epps and it marks a turning point in my political philosopy. It was recorded and released in late 2005 when I was still a HARDCORE Democrat, trying to promote the idea of using the 2006 midterm elections as a last chance to remove the […]
Download I wrote this song on the rooftop of my uncle’s house in Santander, Colombia then performed it live for the first time in Bogota a few days later. This was during the 2003 tour with Tragiko and Cero and I needed an all-Spanish Colombian anthem to perform at every show (because most of my […]
Download This track was written and recorded when Tha Union and NBZ (DJ Epps) were the official Miami street team for G-Unit and Interscope Records. Daddy Yankee had just got signed to Interscope and this instrumental and track reached my hands before it hit the streets or the radio. I basically flipped ...
Download About: When I first heard this Shakira song I knew I wanted to remix it because it reminded me of the Ol’ Dirty Bastard classic “Shame On A Nigga” from the 36 Chambers album. They both have a funk vibe and you can switch up your style and have fun rhyming on a beat […]
Download About: The inspiration for this track came from an interview that Garcia (from Crazy Hood) had in a local magazine where he spoke on the subject of Miami artists who bring each other down “like crabs in a bucket”. The opportunity to record with him came up so I suggested the idea ...
Download About This song was another that was not written down but created as I rehearsed it over and over in my head… building it up until the story and the rhymes were catchy enough that I’d remember them again in the morning. I think I was obsessed with this song for months while I [...]
Download About: This is one of the newer songs that I recorded to complete Rushed Again and the idea for the title came from an audio recording of Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense”. I knew I wasn’t just going to sit there and try to read the whole thing myself I downloaded the MP3 ...
