It's Emay's Time To Shine With "Israfil 'angels trumpt'"

It’s Emay’s Time To Shine With “Israfil ‘Angels Trumpet'”

Off his forthcoming LP titled Ilah, Emay explores his development and growth as an artist trying to make it in the industry, and his struggle with being a Muslim. On the lead single, Israfil “Angel’s Trumpet”, the Hamilton based artist draws inspiration from the Islamic Israfil; an angel that blows a horn to signify the beginning of the day of resurrection. Touching on his difficult upbringing, hustling in the music industry, and searching for a purpose, “better to die a disobedient slave, I’d rather live for long term and not immediate gains,” he spits, “do a hundred shows for nothing but a meagre exchange and become the robitussin for a feverish game, I proceed to restraints, try to tap into my tapestry, what I’m portraying is havoc at full capacity.”

To the march of a straightforward beat with horns by Aaron Hutchinson, Emay proclaims with resiliency that it’s his time to shine. Expect to hear more of his story when he drops his self-produced LP later this year.
