  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The new project from the latin hip hop phenomenon 2MX2 - GMO (Genetically Modified Oppression) is set to release December 7, 2013 worldwide. The album exposes the mental and physical health conflicts the group faced growing up and how they overcame them. With the help of conscious hip-hop names such as Dizzy Wright of Funk Volume, The Reminders, Rebel Diaz, DJ Cavem and a special appearance from Immortal Technique 2MX2 empowers their listeners to pay more attention to their food and the consumption habits that society finds acceptable.
    On the album GMO (Genetically Modified Oppression) 2MX2 shares their experiences with not only oppression politically and mentally, but also nutritionally. The duo, Role Pley and Juice ET Hugo, speak from their own perspectives. Role Pley, at one time was an "illegal" immigrant that came with his family to the US to save his brother’s life when he was born with health defects. Role Pley shares his story about growing up in a society which fostered cultural shame. Being Mexican and speaking a different language was something he tried to hide.
    Juice ET Hugo speaks from a political and health perspective, in 2001 he was separated from his father because of immigration laws. In 2010, Juice was diagnosed with leukemia. Juice is convinced and presents evidence that genetically modified foods: things like soda, fast food, white flour, high fructose corn syrup, milk and other ingredients found in our everyday food made him more susceptible to cancer. In 2011, he drove his cancer into remission using a combination of medical marijuana and healthy eating. The purpose of the album is to expose these situations so that others can relate and be motivated by it.

Track Name: The Cure for Cancer
The cure for cancer. We keep searching for a perfect answer.
Learn advancements. We just can’t wait for worse circumstances.
Don’t burn to ashes from the chemo, understand your chance is
50/50 with that treatment. It can’t hurt to back it
With some good nutrition. What you believe will come to fruition.
If you envision living you can win it.
But if you give in to the thought that it can kill you,
It has the will to drain your life force. So you got to build through
Prayer and medication. Got to raise your dedication.
Change the way you eat. Take it from me, have faith and step away from
Being told what’s your only option.
Do your research. We can learn much more than what we’re told by doctors.
Some don’t believe in natural healing. Some do, but can’t reveal it
Because they profit off of having it concealed, but
Some will actually inform you. Those who really do care.
Whom still have passion to save lives and true advice they will share.
See when I was diagnosed with Leukemia and I approached
Oncologists asking, “should I change my diet?” they said no.
For fear of the effect on my treatment.
But eating healthy have a negative effect? It seemed a bit deceiving.
So I went against what they advised,
And even though the thought of death would try to penetrate my mind.
I gained knowledge, prayed often, didn’t place the blame on
Nobody but myself. I researched what to stay away from.
Like red meat, flour, soda, sugar, and salt.
Started eating greens, broccoli. No more fast food at all.
I also learned no matter how bad the cancer is
You can kill the deformed cells with a plant called Cannabis
Which contains cannabinoids that target cancer cells
And reminds them how to die. I survived and handled well.
I thank God I’m in remission, now I strive to plan and tell
All who go through the same battle to fight, you can prevail.
And that you are not alone. I know it’s hard, but don’t
Give up hope. Just take a smart approach with heart and soul.
Start with goals, set them. Write them and don’t forget them.
Kill an illness with a venom like chemo? I second guess it.
Although everyone is different, I don’t ever recommend it.
Some respond better than others, but most bodies will reject it.
Lets be effective. If it’s hurting more than helping
Then don’t worsen your condition, just a personal suggestion.
Don’t fall into depression. Think positive. Excel with
Exercising your mind, body, and soul. Use self expression.
Continue education because we need change
Matter of fact, Google a compound called “DCA”
It was found to cure most cancers, but there hasn’t been more testing
Because you can’t patent a compound, therefore, there’s no cash investment.
Because there’s no dollar profit, the rich don’t want to fund it.
Luckily, the word got out and funds were given by the public.
Over $800,000 was introduced. Then
Some testing was conducted, but results were inconclusive.
And we haven’t looked back. So what path are we taking?
How do we see all these treatments and still believe that radiation
Is the best solution? I’m just expressing my view.
Tell the truth of my experience but the rest is up to you.
Yeah, the rest is up to you.
I just told you my experience, but the rest is up to you.

(Chorus)
Yes to Cannabis if you choose.
Say yes, and we can not lose.
Say yes, we need a cure.
Say yes, the choice is yours.
Good food to feed the core.
Lots of prayers, that’s for sure.

The best advice I received when I was diagnosed with Leukemia is don’t think that it’s going to kill you, otherwise it will. I’m not the biggest believer in chemotherapy, but I know it does help some. You gotta do it in conjunction with good nutrition, cannabis, lots of prayer, and positive thinking. You gotta arm yourself with every weapon in the battle against cancer. The most important thing is not to give up hope.
