On this project Tha Truth tackles social issues throughout his lyrics. Unlike his first album, there isn't much content about his personal life. Instead, Tha Truth addresses poverty, global warming, inequality, universal healthcare, Fox News, independent media, the CIA, Co-Intel-Pro, LGBT rights, right wing hypocrisy, distribution of resources, and the crimes of the Bush administration. Other themes of the album include the story of The Camden 28, and confronting conformity, materialism, and sexism. Between songs there are words from activists like Larry Hamm and Pam Africa.
