If you love rap music, then you’re going to want to hear this. Da Exiles, a South-London duo are here with their latest single, ‘Never Stop Believing’, an inspiring message of a better life after having gone through struggle and hardship in their own lives. The duo, Mo Striker and Harb Salaam, seek to give a positive message of the youth of today with their rhyming ability – coming February 24th, make sure that you don’t miss this!
With Islam having a huge influence in their journey to a better life, their music is made solely from vocals and beatboxing samples, meaning that their music and message can be heard from anyone who needs that extra bit of inspiration. An inspiring message from Harb Salaam gets the track started, before Mo Striker comes in with a flow similar to UK legend, Wretch 32. Rapping about his previous life down the wrong path, being in a tough environment just to survive, and his eventual epiphany that led him to trust in God, and turn his life around. A similar message is conveyed in the next verse by Harb Salaam, who comes in with a rhyming framework that is reminiscent of some of the very best hip-hop music – bringing a US tinge to a UK sound, making a memorable track that demands to be replayed.
Both artists tell their own story of struggle, and how their belief in God and themselves has taken them out of the environment they grew up in. Real life examples such as this are a source of inspiration to anyone who is feeling like they’re stuck, giving the youth a reason to push forward. A unique beat, a fantastic rap ability and a message that is as real as it is important, ‘Never Stop Believing’ is a single that you cannot afford to miss.
