I'm waiting for my stars to align, racing against time
Face it I'm make it all it takes is dedication...
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

Brought back the first line in this song again just so people can feel it more:

In Greek mythology the reference of “stars aligning” usually meant great things were to happen. So basically my reference to this means if everything falls in place perfectly hopefully my ideal outcomes will become reality. In other words I’ve been patiently waiting for my opportunity to come before I break into the music industry. My battle and only enemy at the moment is “Father Time”, (which is why I say I’m racing against time) but, I know with dedication I’m gonna make it regardless — and you should too :)

Hip-hops landlord tryna take the garbage out
Sorry that I let them in, I promise I'll do better man
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

Going back to the industry being referred to as a full house that needs re-alignment, I refer to myself as the “Hip Hop Landlord” willing to make change and in the process I’m trying to “take the garbage out”. This is another metaphor referring to the “trash rappers” out there that I want to remove from the game, but, I use the act of taking out the garbage to describe it.

Like a wrinkled tee I'm not pressed; bring the iron out
So I can set shit straight re-align the house
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

I use the metaphor of a wrinkled tee to say that I’m not that “pressed” about my current position in the industry, but, would like it to change soon. In reference to change and metaphorically referring to a wrinkled tee, the best way to change that would be to straighten it out. Therefore, I’m asking for someone to (assist/help) bring out the iron (so I can wrinkle out my tee or in other words straighten out my position in the industry), and re-align my position in this game. I refer to the music industry as a full house that as well could use some re-alignment (straightening out).

Fuck claiming the best, aiming for success
I'm still in training, barely breaking a sweat
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

In this line I find that claiming to be the best is pointless, and instead everyone should aim for success and allow others to claim you as the best. Metaphorically I’m training for this and barely breaking a sweat in the process.

How you the best when you hardly have skill
I ain't taking shots but, when I shoot I kill
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

Again I want to know how some of these rappers claim they’re the best when they’re not that talented. Again, I’m not taking shots at anybody specifically, but, I do make it clear that if I were in that position for the “shot” they have, I’d “shoot to kill” metaphorically meaning murder the competition and everything in site.

Except my food is eating up these beats
Can I preach? Let me keep it real
How are the wackest niggas getting these deals
What happened to rappin my nigga I mean chill
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

Continuing with the “hunger” metaphor, my version of food (in this case) are the “beats”, which can either symbolize my instrumentals/production, or be an extension of the hunger metaphor with the term beats being vegetables.

After that, I question the current state of the music industry and the people eating off of it. No names in particular, but I do question where the art of rapping went off to and how some people have been able to “eat” from it.

I need a napkin, I'm hungrier than ever
If you ever starved then you know what I mean
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

simple. I’m hungry to break into this industry, and jokingly I reference to needing a napkin because of it and for all of you out there who are “hungry” for something, you should know exactly what I mean.

Slight flashes, my future goes passing
The thoughts in my head no sound closed caption
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

I constantly have thoughts running through my mind about my future and where I’m headed. Metaphorically speaking, I say that these thoughts in my head are silent but, still there and have meaning similar to a TV with no sound and closed captioning.

I'ma keep grinding out, I'mma keep grinding out
They gotta feel me...
Feel Me by Malik Ferraud 16

For everybody on the grind, keep going. Eventually they (the doubters, non-believers, and haters) will feel you.
