about

Mo Moshiri is an MC, songwriter, and producer. He is perhaps best known however, as one of the founders of the seminal west coast hip-hop group Sweatshop Union. Together they recorded several albums, performed hundreds of shows, earned Juno nods and WCMA wins, and helped pave the path for the new generation of artists making waves.

After a healthy hiatus, Mo is back from deep space and feeling rejuvenated. He wants to talk to YOU about everything! Or maybe just vibe.

The 11 songs on the new album Can I Tell You Something? are a potent blend of true-skool hip-hop and global bass music with intelligent and passionate rhymes, and melodies that stay with you. A majority of the production on the album is handled by long-time friends Mo and Rob the Viking, who have been working together since they were both in their teens. In fact, it was Rob who showed Mo how to make beats 20 years ago! Working together again was a very natural and powerful combination, which translated into the well crafted record before us. Together, they recorded at the Chamber on Vancouver Island.

Can I Tell You Something? is set for release this Fall 2019 via URBNET.

lyrics

Well I came in the door, I said it before
I never let this world get me down anymore
But it does....yes it does
But it does....yes it does
If you could cease the war, we could feed the poor
We could do anything we dream and even more
We could: Fly out, vacation in the stars 
Mess around, build a space station on Mars
But instead, they want you paying back mortgages 
Trillion dollar budgets, common sense shortages
"Whatever they want just give them more of it."
Giving us advice that will slowly poison us
Then they sell us the antidote, make a quick profit selling GMO cantaloupes 
I wanna wash my hands but I can't no more
They got the poison in the dirt, in the water and the soap!

We don't care what you say anymore
We're gonna get what we came here for
Your time is up and if you stand in our way then Watch out....ay
We don't care what you say anymore
We're gonna get what we came here for
Time is running out, Wake up wake up Now

Tell'em again, tell'em again, tell'em again, ay

Well I came to nice up the jam, I like who I am
Came a long way, took my life in my hands
And it's love....yes it's Love
And it's love....yes it's LOVE
If we could see clear, would we be here?
Do we have time to wait another three years?
We could: try out and resurrect humanity 
From 3D back into that 5D sphere
Sounds crazy but it just might work
If we're Gods in the flesh, this is just light work 
Whatever we want can and do manifest
Careful what you wish it might not be what you expected! (Eh!)
But lately seems like we done got the hang of it
Magic is our birthright so we learned the languages
And now we're working double triple overtime
Yes we're here to throw you out, all my people know the time!

We don't care what you say anymore
We're gonna get what we came here for
Your time is up and if you stand in our way then Watch out....ay
We don't care what you say anymore
We're gonna get what we came here for
Time is running out, Wake up wake up Now

Tell'em again, tell'em again, tell'em again, ay
