Veteran rapper and songwriter ABSYTE is not green to the game and with her time-tested skills, she is bringing more than just bravado raps to the forefront of her music. Her latest release titled "Power of Prayer" is a modern-day rap version of the negro spiritual. Bolstered by a rousing and cinematic backdrop that exudes urgency, ABSYTE delivers a fiery and impassioned performance ripe with an uplifting theme to wake up her kinfolk.
Armed with her distinct and commanding vocal tone and smooth flow, ABSYTE drops more jewels than a clumsy diamond setter plus her unapologetic stance on issues that affect black folks is the crux of the matter. Lines like "what is all the truth about? misuse of fame and clout/ where the street hustler and banker looking for simple routes" show the parallels between distinct groups of people trying to achieve their dreams despite the odds. On the other hand, she reminds us that she is stooping for no one with lines like "Save your fake chivalry, it's cool if you're not into me/My body and my choice, fuck your longevity". To wrap things up, she lays the hammer on the chorus with a proclamation-type hook that goes "Rules meant to be broken/while stroking on the high note/the power of prayer got haters on the top ropes/blood thicker than water trying to cope"
In her own words, "Power of Prayer" is a song of hope everlasting to any group of people attempting to encourage their own to strive higher despite political warfare, hatred or violence/turmoil.
