I really like the Beanie Sigel beat, but Daylyt's voice doesn't transition well to music with his jolting delivery, he sounds like a machine, you can tell he's not a natural "rapper".

Mac Lethal did a better rendition of "Feel It in the Air"

Mac Lethal has never done a "better" rendition of anything.

Are you saying Daylyt can't "rap" in this song?

Yes I don't think Daylyt's a good "rapper", he doesn't have a smooth enough delivery, he sounds unusually dissonant, and he lacks rhythm, he's like a singer that can't sing in tune. Compare his version of "Feel It In the Air" to Mac Lethal's version, and you'll notice a drastic difference.

I'm a big fan of Daylyt's serious music, so I was excited to listen to his rendition of one of my favorite songs ever. Honestly, I'm kind of disappointed though. The track's good, but just about anyone with any rapping ability could make a decent song with that beat (see Mac Lethal). I was expecting more depth to Day's lyrics after those opening bars, but he fell into the trap of doing too much of that over-the-top wordplay. I generally like that approach and Daylyt does it really well, but that type of stuff should be kept to a minimum on tracks like this. His "I Am Spawn" song has just the right mix of deep lyrics and creative wordplay.

And, if we're talking about rappers who have made good use of the "Feel it in the Air" beat, check out Juelz Santana's version. I was never a huge fan of Juelz, but his conversational rapping style is perfect over this beat.

They have totally different takes. I'd hardly say that Mac was "rapping" better on the song. He was more in the pocket than Day and went for a calmer cadence but I don't even get where you are saying Day lacks rhythm here.

It's one thing if you don't care for the way Daylyt is rapping and want to hear someone get emotional on the beat or something but saying he can't rap in this song is crazy to me.

Why be loyal to the president, til we get that Obama dedication.
White House, the one who brought us on the slave ship.
Legigations [legislation/litigation(?)], from the problems that we facing
niggas real, realise we at the bottom of the matrix.

Child starving, keep the bottle to their faces.
Dash gas prices high, but the throttle I'ma break it.
Feed us grass, that cilantro I'ma rake it
make it move til it moos As-salamu alaykum.

Religion. Fucked up situation,
as my dream fold I give a fuck what niggas hating.
Hospital, what luck as a patient -
you a friend, you a foe so what, this is a spaceship.

Set sail, pirate running in my face with
drunk breath, two bootlegs, a different tape which
can cut into my language;
I feel like the whole family's against me,
so who's mad, so what if it's the same bitch
who's subbing in but we sit on the same bitch,
swinging on the same pitch
but only get the basic. Bay sick,
life as a nigga out the slums, see the tummies of the starving
same butter but a different margin.

Equal opportunity endorsement.
endorsement of obstacle courses just too big...
but we try to run it anyway, no end relay
and then relay the message to the rest. But they don't listen.

Wealth, hopes to lead a dream cast away -
find a nigga lost talking to hisself.
Pleading not insane, imagination raging
got you bleeding out your brain... Pinky.
Whose world you gon try to take over
with an army full of those Fort Lauderdale soldiers?
Need a job, post office where a lot of males roll up -
ain't the best part of waking up I tried to tell Folgers. (no idea what this means, so probably inaccurate)

The sign is [dishonest] for who knows
stuff he tell us
like the sinus for who nose
stuffy tellers, listen fellas:

If it work for you
but it's a difference in the army and the purple crew
the army went to murking school.
Person view is just a person view (?)
from two different suggestions
they feel it's their fun(?)
but it was Urkel who
created them, they keep that in the archives
as proving that the cool guy created by the smart guy -

think about it. Blood O,
drink about it yeah I know
shorty, ghost ship.
One sharp line can kill a whole party,
and we get in that class last, so tardy,
ditching with our chest out, mardi gras, party off.

Who doing the ruling for the fee
and the greed is who got a degree
you feel me

why/while we building, they building bigger skyscrapers
churches full of god/guy rape (?) but that is just a high paper mount.
But I'ma take them out, cos I'ma take the route
as the one who gonna save us;
as the one who gonna raise us to the top, cut the heads off
razor to the top, cut the heads off...
raise us to the top.
