KEEP MY SOUL by M.I.G
Released recently by the Rundu based Hip Hop group M.I.G, this gospel song is the one for the record. The song dwells on the reality check of the uncertainty of tomorrow and how prayer is essential.
“Man I don’t know, hope I’m gonna see tomorrow so I pray”, as the chorus goes the song gets more catchy and relatable. It goes on to ponder on the fact that the boy child is most at risk with repetitive lyrics “ the streets ain’t no place for a baby boy.
Lyrical every member of the crew delivery is impressive and the fact that they managed to immerse emotions in it makes it more of a soulful song. Not to forget the production flow and elements of the beat balanced with lyrics is very commendable.
The song is accompanied by a music video that’s way laidback than you would expect, not much happening just them in the studio recording and a couple of shots from the beautiful streets of Rundu. Though they’d have done better with the video, I believe the song is reaching it’s full potential as it is currently at around 135k + views on YouTube.
