  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Designed by Jennifer Pitoscia, you won't regret buying this limited edition compact disc. The cover feels so smooth and inside you'll find a drawing I made when I was 10 years old. Nothing feels better (than a hot tub) than unwrapping the plastic of a fresh album cover and hanging it where ever you WANT. Use the cd as a decoration on your wall or even as a cool K8A pendant. You can also appreciate listening to it, but hey, we're just trying to find other fun uses. Enjoy, dear gems. Shipping is free for people living in Canada!

Softly pull out
A silver line from my head
See if you look ahead
Opened a world that could spread for

Miles I could walk miles
Away from shallow undertones
Sending waves to your ears
Mindfull pieces you hear

K8A can take it
Cause it’s paused and away
And foggy days won’t escape
Your aura’s glowing through grey

I remember
To surrender
For a while

Time backwards
Let it go now
And rise

The more you want it
Look the other side
Two poles alike
Both repel at touch

Crash a wall
Precious way
Free my hands I’m stalling now

Roam through life
Push away
Laying sleek won’t go too far

rap Milla Thyme
Sometimes this life is strenuous, like jail sentences
connect my thoughts like commas do to sentences
so my mind can be at ease on the penmanship
not a care in the world and my intention is to hit you with the real
from the ghettos and favelas all the way to beverly hills, people can feel
the same story universally spoken
whether it’s blatant hate or a heart that been broken, I'm trying to get your mind open
with these soliloquies to think about the possibilities that we can reach
I use the weapon of speech to teach, those inherently weak
that life can be the opposite of bleak, it’s vibrant
like all the faces from places I've been
I'm at the table I'm grateful, amen
before I eat and when I sleep
it gets deep like the words in my voice, negativity is just a choice
a sign of the times and the struggles we all go through
I know I'm out of my mind but still I hope to
persuade you to take a trip with me, forget your troubles and your worries then just flip your seat
just recline with the intertwine of ya inner mind
keep hustlin' cause all good things come with time
these are my thoughts and the things I try to get across, even when the lines are blurred and all is lost

We gotta keep it groovin’, we gotta keep it movin’
we gotta do it for you and yours and all us humans
we gotta keep it groovin’, we gotta keep it movin’
we gotta do it for you and yours and all us humans
