Iprosperous touched socially conscious issues on his 'Feeling Good In a Me Self' track and has managed to present his thoughts unlike popular formats............
I'm feeling good in a me self
Like I should in a me self
Wonderful feeling so over-whelming
I've got to share it with someone else
That's nice de youths dem pree what's right
Compromise & the feedback right
Fi real that's nice
Glad sey dem reach that heights
Every corner, every street lock tight
Fi me that's nice
Youths dem agree stop fight
Can't bother wid d ediot life
Fi real dats nice
Irie fi me not hype
Comfortable sleep at nights.....
These are some of the lyrics rasta reggae artist Iprosperous spits on his 'Feeling Good In a Me Self' track. Several Jamaican radio disc jockey have recently been heard playing 'I Feel Like Dancing' and 'Feeling Good In a Me Self' both produced on the Millionz International Record Label the company which manages the artist. Known to many as Raymond Thomas in the Parish of Manchester, Jamaica where he was born, Iprosperous is no new comer to the Reggae music industry. In fact, he has been around for quite sometime but went by the name Natural I.
Failure to Take Off
Though it had nothing to do with his decision to change, the name Natural I failed taking off so upon meeting his present manager Andrew Duggan, both took the decision to re-brand his image and, "so far me see it a work much better" said Iprosperous.
What is Iprosperous Niche
Iprosperous music replicates his life. He face challenges like any regular person but has devised a way to deal with them. Music is embraced by the masses for many reasons and his, he expects will become a source of relief for demotivated persons. "The truth is, my music is therapeutic, it is meant to provide a relief for frustration and challenges. I first tested it on me before sharing it with others so I know" said Iprosperous then continued, "One can not take too seriously life and the challenges that comes with it. Best practices are to relax and free up and when I say free up I don't mean substance abuse it's all about relieving the mind of stress with happy thoughts ok." Well that is his own niche, creating 'happy' and 'feel good' music, "me dance, sing or laugh off most things enuh, cause me refuse to accept that the challenges me face cannot be resolved" he said when asked if he actually gets relief from just listening happy and feel good songs.
As both Feeling Good In a Me Self and I Feel Like Dancing enjoys airtime on local main stream radio, the djs spinning the music also seems to have a sense of relief playing the tracks as both are awarded most of the time with multiple spins, mention and big up by them.
Iprosperous touched socially conscious issues on his 'Feeling Good In a Me Self' track and has managed to present his thoughts unlike popular formats, more subtle and friendly. His analytic outlook of the youth is applauding. Complements such as "that's nice, de youths dem a pree what's right, compromise & the feedback right, fi real that's nice glad sey dem reach that heights, youths dem agree stop fight, can't bother wid di ediot life, fi real dats nice" is a clear admission that this artiste not only understand the issues of society but choose to spread through his music a more a positive outlook.
As the music seep through the loop hole one can only expect great things for this Entertainer. Iprosperous is another Jamaican artiste who seek international recognition.
