Fel Sweetenberg- Save Ya Life (Ft. Dave Ghetto & Baby Blak)
Fel Sweetenberg takes it back to the streets with Dave Ghetto and Baby Blak on this SoFlo Entertainment single. “Save Ya Life” is a compelling cipher addressed to the codes of the inner-city, where knowledge over-powers pride….and that in itself determines if you’ll end up face down floating in the shallows.Now put the record on repeat. Are they speaking of the street code, or is this some deep wordplay of advice to those new faces in the music scene? Decide yourself.
Fel Sweetenberg’s next LP, Sophomore Jinx, is out now on SoFlo Entertainment.
