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.
