“Ya Feel Me” is the title of the latest joint from Silas Price, an energetic tune inspired by the clairvoyant feeling that “something big is about to happen.”
Describing the song’s incentive, Price says, “I wanted the song to be high in energy. We all have had that feeling before like something big is about to happen. I was wrongly accused at my job and was presented my termination letter. Instead of appealing it, I took it as an opportunity for the next chapter.
Starting with that “feeling,” Price penned a song for himself, one designed to push him forward, not allowing the little stuff to deter him from his goal.
He wanted to “capture that anticipation and excitement and translate it into a song.” He realized he was taking a big risk, but also comprehended “those are the ones that make it worth it.”
At the age of six, Price was writing poetry because it provided an avenue for emotional communication. One day he came across his dad, who was listening to Tupac. Price loved the feel and surging energy of the music. The moment defined Price’s nascent love affair with rap. After that, Price spent his time listening to Ludacris’ “Stand Up,” mirroring the smooth flow of delivery. He didn’t know it at the time, but Price was learning the most important component of rap – flow, baby, flow.
Later, he began adding beats to his poetry. Because of his talent for flow, absorbed from Ludacris and I.T., Price’s songs struck a chord in his listeners. The youngster definitely had next up.
“Ya Feel Me” opens with wickedly flashing synth colors riding over muscular deep tones. A Jovian rhythm sets the foundation for the music. The juxtaposition of shimmering hues up top with throbbing buff dynamism underneath infuses the tune with hot-blooded, ardent harmonics.
Price’s flow is tight, full of nasal spitting as well as more melodic timbres. Stratums of vocal accents and skin-tight harmonies add harmonic depth and breadth.
Adept rhymes convey the heady expectancy of serendipitous circumstances.
“Got fired from our jobs, and we laughed / Free at last, I’m so damn serious / And we ain’t going back.”
“Ya Feel Me” is a dope tune. As Silas Price says, “Why work hard on something temporary when you can commit that same energy into something you love – your dreams.”
