“The War Is On” is a collaboration between Merc Versus and underground hip hop artists/producers, June Marx of Twin Perils. This is Merc Versus fifth collaboration with Twin Perils individually (second with June Marx) and is taken from the compilation project entitled Vigilante Vaults Vol. 1: Love & War. The project also features JMega the God, DJ TMB, Cheena Black, and Resolute. The lyrics on this song represent the tense socio-political climate we currently live in by blending the topics of warfare, paranoia, terrorism, police brutality, ageism, and more into a concise, tightly-woven tapestry of artistic expression.
