NEW MUSIC | SILAS ZEPHANIA (@SilasZephania ‏) ‘MICROPHONE ADDICT’ (BEAT BY ASHEM)

Silas Zephania opens up his lyr­ic­al account for 2018, with yet another poet­ic dish served over an Ashem beat. The two have col­lab­or­ated on numer­ous Hip Hop adven­tures. Being a word­smith, a lyr­i­cist and poet the object­ive is to con­vey advanced speech through rhyme. The mean­ing of the song, is to sym­bol­ise the neces­sity for healthy addic­tions that are per­tin­ent for human devel­op­ment. How Zeph man­oeuvres over the beat, is an example of the pas­sion and rhythmic rhet­or­ic of a lyr­ic­al addict. One who gath­ers the vocab­u­lary needed to rep­res­ent a love for the micro­phone.

At the begin­ning of verse two Silas says,

 “Pas­sion for writ­ing dragons and pythons, from Staten Island to Caucasi­an migrants in Zim­b­ab­wean cli­mates.”

Here Silas not only dis­plays word cre­ativ­ity, but depicts the pen through socio-polit­ic­al aus­pices.

In verse one Silas says,

 “poet­ic ram­page, fin­ger on the writ­ten gage blood on my page, from the bars of para­graph escapades.”

 In verse three,

“from the Hills of Brix­ton, lec­tures are mic scepters osten­ta­tious pro­vi­sion, Zeph poetry an eso­ter­ic obli­vi­on.”

Being an Emcee is a life­style, know­ing that you have the abil­ity to use lan­guage as a means to con­nect the minds of our spe­cies across the plan­et. Hip Hop is not ordin­ary, it is the idio­syn­crat­ic art form that can only be led by cit­izens who know the value of authen­ti­city.

The chor­us explains,

“Absorb the web of my mil­it­ant pledge, Micro­phone Addict Hip Hop atlas Silas lyr­i­cist Zeph.”

Here SZ is describ­ing the import­ance of the voca­tion. As one of the ambas­sad­ors for the Hip Hop nation, there are glob­al reas­ons to pro­ject the highest stand­ards of volu­bil­ity. This cul­ture was built as a respon­se to oppres­sion, and seeks to attract those who need lead­er­ship. Silas Zephania answers that call.
