  • Tote Bag

    I saw the documentary "Bag it" as well as worked on the beach for 2 years. Go to the market and no longer leave with plastic bags that only get trapped in our oceans. “Paper or Plastic?” You’ll say, “No, thanks”, when shopping with this environmentally friendly tote. Its wide bottom makes it great for groceries or larger items. Made from 12oz cotton twill, it has cotton-web handles which have stress-point reinforced stitching. Dimensions: 13"w x 15.5"h x 7"deep.

  • Drink more water. Your skin, hair, body, and mind will thank you. Dang, hydration never looked so good!

    Why toss out yet another plastic bottle, or let plastic chemicals leach into your water, when you could use a stylish, timeless UNDAKOVA SIGG bottle instead?

    Bottle size: 0.3L (6" tall x 2.6" diameter).
    100% BPA free (exceeds FDA requirements for nontoxic and non-leaching products).
    Reusable aluminum water boated is coated with metallic non-toxic paint and comes with the standard SIGG black screw top.
    No Weird Taste: Non-toxic baked-on inner-lining does not impart odors or tastes.
    Light-weight but Strong: Weighs no more than a plastic water bottle.
    Leak-proof: Seamless construction made from a single piece of pure aluminum.
    Cool Designs: SIGG bottles are as good to look at as they are to drink from. Baked on powder coat finish lasts for years. Quality designs are printed using the latest UV technology, and will not fade after washing.
    Recyclable: SIGG bottles are pure aluminum and recyclable when they finally require replacement.
    Hand wash only. Not recommended for dishwasher.

Track Name: Inspiration
Life is Such
By Undakova

How’d I get here in the first place
Got me feeling like I am living in the rat race
when you moving through the city it's a fast pace
doesn’t matter if you had good or bad grades
If you ask me
Cause every day is another lesson into class, race,
gender, religion, that a leave you with a bad state
of mind but I had to trust and to have faith
that the music that I made would give me that grace
And spread a message that I know would lift me past space
and time cause I am beyond what the maps say
So every time I spit a verse its everlasting
I channel with my energy and fill with passion
So I can live a life in peace that I've imagined
Don’t need your suffering, your headaches or your aspirin
just some time to contemplate to make it happen
Cause every moment is getting better than it has been

When it seems hopeless to focus through the commotion
I am open to being spoken to from higher beings
and seeing signs

Cause the path that been chosen got my devotion
to intuition I am zoning in
so I balance and heal my mind

if the transmission gets broken then I’ll do yoga
it’s probably something I am holding so I realign within spine

and if I still can't move forward then I take notice
I stop center in lotus I let it go and let divine

Inspiration is all I need to grow
Tap into my source and let it flow
You design the path and where it goes
Follow your heart and watch it unfold

Inspiration is all you need to grow
Tap into your source and let it flow
You design the path and where it goes
Follow your heart and watch it unfold

Many say that they are in the know
but your inner guidance knows for sure
You design the path and where it goes
Follow your heart and watch it unfold
Track Name: Now is the Time
Now is the Time
By Undakova

Now is the time that you guide my dreams
Now is the time that I wake up
Now is the time that I am not sleeping
Now is the time Cause enough is enough

Now is the time that I am calling on courage
Now is the time thatI go deep inside
Now is the time That I don't feel I am selfish
Now is the time That we need our pride

Now is the time That it is great to be human
Now is the time That we all come alive
Now is the time that we know what we're doing
Now is the time That we all shall thrive

You see the love you receive is not the love that you read about
Nature designed you and me to breath in and out
You could pretend you don’t need all the oxygen from leaves
and the forest and its trees and could be without
the air and habitats of greens can’t be weeded out
and all beings on this planet is what we about
at first I didn’t understand I was freaking out
thought we would destroy this promised land That we dreamed about

But then I seen my doubt
And then I realized that I had to redefine my mind deep beneath my scalp
IT ain’t an easy route
But if i wanted to live in perfect harmony its me who would need to scout
That’s when I saw integrity I had the least amounts
started to live compassionately kicked the demons out
and times i still got mad so angry I screamed and shout
but i slowed down and gained the patience to see it out

Now I don’t need to pout
Started cooking for myself stopped eating out
beans, grains and legumes is what I am seeking now
juicing on my own, started eating sprouts
I stop supporting the breeding of beef from cows
the truth is their diseased before they reach ya mouth
and all the feed and the feces that’s leaking out
into the rivers and the streams got us seeing droughts
ok peace i am out
Track Name: Don't Stop the Music
Don't Stop the Music
By Undakova

Don't stop the music
Just let if fulfill your destiny
The reason I choose it
Because it just feels so good to me
Don't want to abuse it
Because in the end it will set you free
So don't the music
So don't stop the music,
the music, the music


Open your ears
this beat had me choking in tears
Thinking back
To how they use to smoke in the stairs
Tapping bottoms of them forties
when they opened them beers
On the corner of my block
I use to joke with my peers
Maan most of us there
Straight broke and we cared
That maybe one day
We'll see the light and hoped it appeared
But folks disappeared
We're not on the path together
Like we ain't the same kids who use to laugh together
Guess those times don't last forever
Guess who ever told me they did
figured they'd gas my head up
Our past endeavors will always be that which lets us
see how far we have come now that we have perspective
From the times that have passed since our last collection
of memories, we realize our path is directed
It took a long time to get my act together
But that’s how I came to master this message.
to

Don't stop the music
Just let it fulfill your destiny
The reason I choose it
Because it just feels so good to me
Don't want to abuse it
Because in the end it will set you free
So don't the music
So don't stop the music,
the music, the music

first thing that you should do is gather your instrumentals
that will be the basis to speak on what you’ve been through
manifest your purpose and reasons to why they sent you
you can start a movement the people want to get into
Once they see your vision you’ll have them marching to your tunes
heading to a healthier place instead of a war zone
you can help them make a new day by creating your songs
don’t you leave a note unexpressed and you can't do no wrong
and that’s exactly how I got here
I made the music like a foundation and rock here
So I won’t deliver a message that is not clear
It comes from deep within my soul and don’t stop there
It feels my core so in my goals no I don’t got fear
I just pursue it to the beat of my own heart here
And if ever I am in doubt then I just shout prayers
and ask for help so I can return to my route yeah

That helps me accept where I am at
ground so I don't over react
Check inside myself and come back
Knowing that my love is intact
expressing my truth is the only thing I am here for
I can see a future where now I am able to share more
nurturing myself and my passion is what I live for
giving me the blessing to care more and
Don't stop the music
Just let if fulfill your destiny
The reason I choose it
Because it just feels so good to me
Don't want to abuse it
Because in the end it will set you free
So don't the music
So don't stop the music,the music, the music
Track Name: Concrete Jungle
Concrete Jungle
By Undakova and Broke MC

Petroleum Oil used for our gas
Got us wondering how long
will this power last
Cause seconds turn to hours fast
As time ease through
like an hourglass
and whether or not
you upper middle lower class doesn't matter
We all felt the aftermath when the plane and towers crashed
Mourning Souls
we lost through Osama's Wrath
Another page in our history
MCs we write
chapters and paragraphs
Using mics like power staffs
To teach the seeds
who don't know the half
How to take control
before this horror has
Us left out
I am stressed out
I am thinking about the best route and deaths out
Ya hear me?
Ya not listening.
If you was
you would know your position in This habitat we living in
And what I am witnessing
The same wishing well we wishing in
Is the same pot that we pissing in Its sickening.



Come in to this world we me the MC
As we go on a tour you never been before
Only will the strong survive
So just move as I move and follow me and you'll thrive
Cause negative vibrations will come through the wires .
To try To
hypnotize you with their advertisements
Its a concrete jungle designed to disguise
so please advised and wise and you’ll thrive

Heard too many people crying that
Cost of living keeps on rising
Our politicians keep on lying
and this MET TROP P polis keeps climbing
to reach new heights and reach new clients
but each new wave just keeps reviving
that city state that weakens climates
where not everyone shares a peaceful environment

Some say gentrification
But I think it’s a nation
wide problem that we have been facing
since native reservations
since before they killed Ab with assassination
we’ve been plagued by a consciousness of lack and hatred
that mind state is a backwards view of mother nature
let’s find faith to go back to truth of the creator
designed you with the attributes and parts of space dust
let me remind you we gotta face us



Come in to this world we me the MC
As we go on a tour you never been before
Only will the strong survive
So just move as I move and follow me and you'll thrive
Cause negative vibrations will come through the wires .
To try To
hypnotize you with their advertisements
Its a concrete jungle designed to disguise
so please advised and wise and you’ll thrive
Track Name: Alive
Alive
By Undakova


You can do
What you
Want to
In your life
Soon you will find That in due time
If you free your mind and realize you'll feel alive


Come on take a walk through this
Mainframe of this corporate fortress
Same game just fame is what they offer us
Its all corrupt don't let your thoughts adjust
To the television sets cause they forcing us
To lose all that is sacred
and its costing us
We cruise through the hatrix
like Morpheus
With out a clue in this world what's in store for us
Who knows what its all because
But they say its for my own protection
and the war on drugs
So we live in sections
Eyes all on us
Like George Orwell
1984 on us
Man listen.
I am trying to make decisions logically
Cause the forty acres and the mule that they promised me Honestly
Is a dream only we can make true
So what I am saying to you is



You can do
What you
Want to
In your life
Soon you will find
That in due time
If you free your mind
and realize you'll feel alive

The world is changing
At a rate that is incredible
And you can be angry but
Change is inevitable
And you can be in danger if they
Sense you edible
So I stay resilient
My pain is not legible
I feel it's better to
Move when I am ready to
Rather than to only make a move when the cheddar do
Cause that’s measurable
you move when it's political
You don’t have a pulse you just a cosmetic ridicule
Willing to sell out for a price
And to get a few
interviews
But to me you’ll never be credible
So I edit fools out I don't let em choose
if they had a choice
They'd rather see me in medical
Hospital but if you not hospitable
Then I keep it moving like the New York winter weather do
That's how you know I am alive
And I'll never do
Anything but flow from my heart
and keep on telling you that



You can do
What you
Want to
In your life
Soon you will find
That in due time
If you free your mind
and realize you'll feel alive


I am alive like raw foods
Like goji berries, hemp seeds and mushrooms
Like the flowers on the earth in the soil bloom
I define my path through concrete " give me room "
Forget the laws of physics we ignore rules
Dissolve through any obstacle that stall you
raise the volume
we howling at the new moon
you hear the call its just to warn you
that we alive like the birds in the sky
we believe that we're free and deserve to live high
and until all beings are preserved to survive
then this whole damn thing we call liberty is lie
cause if I was the king i’ll have a tendency to try
to make sure I lived right before I eventually died
while I still have breath and the symphony behind
I am a hit you with a chorus you can remember me by
like
Track Name: A Change Will Come
A Change Will Come
By Undakova

A change will come (you know that I can't change a thing")
Repeat 4x

Life
is it full of pain?
OR is it just me being full again.
Consumed all I want then I pulled the pen,
out talking bout all that's cruel within.

Deep down inside I know I am the blame.

Duck down and hide just cause I am ashamed.

To open my eyes and find I am the same.

Just lusting for pride in which I am contained.

The focus that I know that I can bring,

would lift me up high If I tried and aimed.

Although I realize I decide the frame,

I picture my life still confined and tame.

A lion in a cage stuck in iron and chains.

An animal whose taught that supplying the brain.

Is better than the instincts that lie in veins

of the body and the soul that I am dying to change. . . cause

Chorus:

A change will come (you know that I can't change a thing") Repeat 4x



I could change my perspective

But if I did it would change nothing about the way I really feel

All the pain I've accepted

Got me feeling I am making excuses for what's really real

And the things I've neglected

Got me thinking all I really did was give them time to build

To the point where I am helpless

And I am not really confident in who I am really am or my skill

Really you know that I can't change a thing

And I am destined for fame

I'll try to lock myself in

Side it won't happen again

Could I control my own thoughts

Could I control my own brain

Temptations eating my soul

I'll never be the same

A change will come (you know that I can't change a thing") Repeat 4x
Track Name: Corporate America
Corporate America
By Undakova

I see how the game changed a lot kid.
Money quotas and profits
More people download this try to cop it
Computers and fiber optics
Causing a major stock lift the price of shares sky rockets
But what is affecting my pockets
When they banned free Napster with no answers to why they stopped it
Cause artist can’t live off of props kid
You can’t buy a cheese burger with “Yo that rhyme is hot kid”
The industry is on some pop ish
Every time I turn on the radio
I hear the same dang topics
Don’t get it twisted I aint’ trying to knock it
But if I hear rolex watches again then I am a drop kick
The next man, leave his head in the sand like ostrich
Grab mics and turn dead crowds into the mash pits
I am warning ya so proceed real cautious
Kova spit sick y’all could all get nauseous

I see how the game changed a lot kid
Video killed the radio star and the whole world sat and watched it
No pilot in the cockpit
technology provides remote control planes to stop the conflicts
The president will bomb quick
use one hand to bomb shit the other hand to light his bong hits
And what is really nonsense
is they’ll make a movie about it on some Cheech and Chong in Vietnam ish
I am messing with your conscience
But really the essence of music changed and its been gone since
RUN DMC endorsing Adidias
Now RED and METH endorsing some crap for peoples armpits
But really its all harmless
but why everybody in the video gotta look like a convict
Lets make one promise
That before we leave here tonight we all remain honest.
Track Name: Video Killed the MC
Video Killed the MC
By Undakova
Now let’s see
We all know that TV has the ability to distort what we see Now we
In response to what we see
have responsibility to just partially believe
Those
Remarkable feats,
the cars and the jeeps,
The one mc in the bar full of freaks
I got
Involved in the beats
And revolved around ciphers as a young-en
That would start in the streets
The problem is these
Companies growing on images

Hoping you believe what you view is significant "Only if it’s visually stunning they’ll consider it And if it ain’t hot
They will not remember it"
So I figured that id
move in intricate
Steps through the ignorance
rep those who went through it
Cause the penalty’s death if you’re different Specially original
And guest whose depicting it!!
Video killed the mc by far



Self-Destruction
the video sells corruption
Mass production
of imagery got you sucked in
Not for nothing
but shouldn’t we all do something
Lets all work in conjunction this is an
MC’s main function
MC means to make a change
Some people think it’s strange
We are the voice of the people soon as they complain Now and days things have changed
deep within the game
Through our ways seemed that fame got us taking aim At our freakin own
but to each is own
So I try to aim high when I speak a poem Target market bulls eye that’ll reach ya dome
If you feel it good rise
let the people know
Video killed the mc by far

repeat 4x
