How about to give some feedback to others ?

There are a couple of things I would change:

- The verb on the vocal I would change from a room to a hall with apr. 2,5s reverb time, insert an EQ before the verb and cut -3dB of the bass frequencies and the high frequencies also
- I would give the BD more thumb (63 Hz + 2dB, 5 kHz + 3dB)
- use a sidechain on the bass track to give the BD more room
- if you want to go for the distortion on the lead that´s fine, otherwise cut 3 dB at 1,5 kHz
- lower the HiHat and the Shekere a bit
- use the verb on the toms to put them more in the background
- put some distortion on the organ to give it the authentic character

Other than that it´s too repetitive and there´s a lack of ideas.
Put in some fills and effects, which are exciting and gets the attention of the listeners.

If you want some inspiration on mixing and mastering you should absolutely have a listen to my
