about

Super dope, way above nominal science rap album. I am the anti-matter to all the stuff that doesn't matter. I am here to annihilate.

I am following the Weird Al model for this album. I will only be creating individual tracks and adding them to AREA49.

Track Name: Go For Launch (The Rocket Song)
[pre-hook]
hands up, make a nose cone
jump around like nobody home
four nine on the microphone
Space Race, Game of Thrones

[verse1]
Who wanna get into space?
light ’em up, turn up the bass
The Cape my launching place
missiles are my favorite shape
For every accctttion
opposite re-accction
equal is how I get my
satisfaction
like Saturn? Take V
night launches make ya’ll blind
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Go for launch, let’s light this candle
[pre-hook]
hands up, make a nose cone
jump around like nobody home
four nine on the microphone
Space Race, Game of Thrones

[hook]
Jump! x7 (you a rocket)
Go! x7 (for launch)

[verse2]
got budget for launches
whatever the cost is
liquid fuel, secret sauces
rocket science, Wernher’s the bossest
mind running fast, call it Flo Jo`
launch abort and I say Oh No
let’s go with abort to orbit
OMS burn when I say floor it.
Commander Funk on this mission
stay in your seats, no switchin’
80’s kid and I still say Yo Joe
let loose til i say MECO
[pre-hook]
hands up, make a nose cone
jump around like nobody home
four nine on the microphone
Space Race, Game of Thrones
Track Name: Live From the Surface of the Moon (feat. Miquiel Banks)
[intro]
launching from The Cape - NASA!
homes and deep space - NASA!
earthlings every day rocking NASA
quiver full of rockets... NASA !

[hook] - Miquiel Banks
Congress spending they ain’t spending like they should be spending
going but not like how we should be sending
We might be launching we ain’t launching like we should be launching
not good at funding but we really good at stalking

[verse 1]
Try all you want but you never gonna pass NASA
all my rockets say USA cause I blast NASA
black and white checkerboard is the style of NASA
grew up with the shuttle yeah I’m a child of NASA
Saturn V love for the history of NASA
why they don’t get more money is a mystery of NASA
steely-eyed missile men, women, NASA
aerospace, outer space is the role of NASA
didn’t start going up… til we knew enough
blew enough.. rockets up… got the knowledge up
elevate the game - past atmospheric
orbit achieved and everybody’s cheering
now we’re here - we started from the bottom
legacy, legends - you know we got’em
telemetry beeping that Deep Space Network
brain achievements increase our net worth

Congress spending they ain’t spending like they should be spending
going but not like how we should be sending
We might be launching we ain’t launching like we should be launching
not good at funding but we really good at talking

[verse 2]
challenges overcome give spin off knowledge
every day influence when we win off knowledge
science was my favorite subject in college
don’t trust anyone that objects to knowledge
dream a little dream, plant a little seed
reap the benefits and see what we achieve
launch probes, poke microbes
invest in tech, learn the unknown
what's in store when you explore, wonder
if you don't know, you wanna know, under-
stand the world, recognize small minds
closed minds just make us rewind
as a species we can’t know enough, tell
me you want your brain to say “woah enough”
like we don’t got the dough enough
this status quo is gross, yuck
