Mind Right

Album: Single Release Only (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Tk-N-Cash is an Augusta, Georgia rap duo comprising Tevin Thompson (TK) and Derrin Towsend (Cash). The pair have been working within the music industry since the mid teens and have paid their dues writing for the likes of Kevin Gates, Juicy J, Meek Mill and Trey Songz. This is their first single after leaving Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace label and signing to to Reckless Republic/Columbia Records.
  • Cash explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "It's really about getting your mind right. Sometimes, you have to leave certain people and things alone so you can get on the right path, do the right things, and get your life in order."

    "It came from real life situations," he continued. "We were just in the studio vibing one night. Our phones kept going off, and we were like, 'We've got to get our minds right and leave this alone.' We recorded the track, and we thought, 'Wow!' So, we kept it. One of the key things is getting your mind right and going through things with a clear head."
