Artists Spotlight Battle: Delo Reed vs. Jeremiah Silva
Delo Reed – “Hello Fear”
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic/Paramus, New Jersey
Delo Reed wants to see people dancing and smiling while bumping his music, and that’s exactly what his does. Growing up listening to his influences like Nas and Eminem have helped him mold into the artist he is today, one who uses bits and pieces of modernized boom rap mixed with old styles similar to those of A Tribe Called Quest. Delo wants his fans to know how much they mean to him, and how he genuinely cares for each and every one of them. His lyrics reflect this as well, and his upcoming EP is going to be awesome.
“Hello Fear” can be described simply as a dope trip for any club or party experience. It opens up with a mysterious beat, and moves in to some clever verses from Delo. His rhymes complete a very personal message within the lyrics that really gets the mind thinking. The chorus blends so smoothly with the rest of the song, which unfortunately is just 3 minutes long. It closes out with a soulful fade, leaving the listener desperate to hear more.
Jeremiah Silva – “Gospel”
New York, New York
Strictly rooted in gospel rap music, Jeremiah Silva is determined to show the impact his faith in God has had on his life. Quoting his biggest influence as Jesus Christ, his songs are made with love and patience mixed with dubstep and a hint of techno. Silva’s pieces are uniquely bangers that are unmatchable, and are basically a mixture of flow and style from Big Pun and the message similar to that of Lecrae. Soon releasing a gospel album titled EMPIRE MUST RISE, he wants to be able to help the less fortunate and create a better world.
Silva opens up “Gospel” with a clever message about God’s gift of life, and furthers the song with a plethora of awesome and passionate rhymes. His lyrics address several topics about the benefits of faith in an attempt to leave his listeners in a state of euphoria and peace. The beat goes hard, which is seemingly placed there to further affirm Silva’s message about the Christian faith. “Gospel” bows out after several deep yet monotone verses, and is purely something one would hear in an urban church.
