Maya’s Chalice is a new single from hip hop artist, Eli Ramsey. Lyrically, it’s one of the better indie rap songs I’ve heard. Eli’s lyrics are autoiogrpahical and personal, as he ventures into and remains in storytelling mode throughout. The song contains elements of nostalgia and heartbreak. Eli goes into such impressive detail that one can visualize these events as he relates them in a lenthy narration. The delivery combines rap and “spoken word” poetry styles, while a dreamlike beat and delightful female backing vocals set the ambiance. Maya’s Chalice isn’t just about looking backward though, since the artist makes clear he’s hopeful for the connection to be rekindled in the future. It’s a solid song with a story that will keep you interested.
