Illadel will have you feeling lucky just to be alive. An eternal optimist, his music is full of appreciation for the everyday blessings most people overlook. On his latest single, “Feel Good,” the Philadelphia-based rapper manifests success and money showers.


In just under two minutes, he gets straight to the point. His energy is contagious as he proclaims with full faith, “cultivated my heaven / Ima learn from my lessons and smoke to my blessings.” Hearing him affirm all the wonderful things in his life while continuing to push himself to be the best person he can be, the song will make you feel like you can do anything.

Active in the Philly scene for the past year and a half, Illadel (offstage name: Doe Ali) draws inspiration from hometown heroes The Roots, and has put together a live band called MoBBluz featuring Barbara “MuzikalDunk” Duncan on drums, Gabe Preston on saxophone, Lo Jonez on keys, Joshua Grace on guitar, and Corey Rader on bass. Illadel is a commanding presence at the front of it all, and the complete confidence he has in where he’s going is an instant dose of encouragement no matter how lost you may be feeling. With a cheerful beat, easy flow, and echoing samples, “Feel Good” is that little voice in your head that tells you to keep going. Take a listen below.
