What we thought of the track
Lyricism seems to be back in style with Trizz’s latest track. I got goosebumps listening to track. The beat is sick but the lyrics are even sicker. I am definitely looking forward to more from Trizz. His lyrics are gritty and real and connect with listeners.

His debut EP, ‘Humble Beginnings’ is no different. Coming with hard-hitting production and plenty of potent lyricism, listen as the budding MC touches on life, love and going down as one of the greatest to ever do it.
Humble Beginnings’intro track, “No Sleep” sets the tone for the rest of the 4 track independent release as Revol pours out vivid lines and vibes, giving listeners a firsthand view into his mind. Whether he’s laying down resonate lyrics, crafting intricate rhyme schemes or effortlessly riding the beat, Revol‘s confidence and pen game is immediately apparent as soon as play is pressed. Where most artists shy away from speaking their truth in favor of clout chasing and padding their pockets, Revol stays true to self, attacking every track with passion and skill reserved for only the most skilled emcees.
Citing influences such as Rakim, 2Pac, Eminem and Lloyd Banks, Revol is well on his way to the top of the game with an unwavering commitment to excellence and professionalism unparalleled. In an industry where artists play follow the leader, offering nothing new to the game, Revol comes through like a breath of fresh air. No gimmicks. No clout chasing. No mumble. Just real raps that make you want to get in your bag. Check for ‘Humble Beginnings’ and get a glimpse of Hip Hop’s next game changer: Revol.
Thoughts on ‘Humble Beginnings’
1. No Sleep: The beat begins quite ominous and Revol comes in hard. He has a tough raspy voice. I immediately see the Eminem inspiration. Love the message behind the song. We are all on team No Sleep to grind and work on our dreams. I think this song is a hit and is a great way to introduce us to his EP.
2. Beg Ya Pardon: This song is a bit more hype and less ominous. It’s more lighthearted with the chorus and some of the lyrics. Such as mimosas, never being sober and the Sega cartridges. Love the Sega references, I can tell we are in a similar age range. Aside from the fun, he of course, speaks on the game and being a star.
3. Bad Girl: This song is meant for the ladies for sure. Whomever he is speaking about is one of a kind. This might be my favorite track off the EP because it makes me want to dance and makes me feel like a bad bitch. This is one of those songs you listen to while getting ready with your girls for a night out.
4. Clockwork: The beat sounds super trippy in the beginning. Revol starts spitting with high energy and talks about getting the bag like clockwork. I love the analogy. The addition of the ticking sounds on the beat really drive the point across. Revol uses a lot of metaphors throughout the song. He talks about his talent and uses various witty comparisons to prove his point.
Overall, the ep is very well done and I cannot wait to see more from Revol. This is a great introduction to showcase his various talents.
New Jersey born rapper Revol fuses bold technical ability with a playfully aggressive carefree style and versatile flow. Inspired by the passion and creativity of Rakim, 2pac, Eminem and Lloyd Banks, this MC started writing and recording at 13 eventually releasing mixtapes showcasing his expressive bars, punchlines and Boom Bap influence.
Revol emerged in LA with his first single, (“I Get It”) soon followed by (“All I Know”), (“Time Freestyle”), and his debut EP “Humble Beginnings” released in Summer of 2019. While steadily performing, he is merging into his own and quickly building a name for himself in Hip Hop.

Lil Guillotine, who has been making hip hop music for nearly two years, has over ten years of experience doing anti-capitalist organizing. “You Only Get One” is yet another tactic in his goal of effecting positive social change via movement building.

Our Thoughts on the Song
The song is on the shorter side at only a minute and 40 seconds. The beat has a great start to it. I had a hard time understanding the first couple of lines. But once I was able to understand the other lyrics I got the message. It was short and sweet and to the point for sure. As much as I support the message I feel like something was missing even after jamming to it for a week. What did you guys think of the song? Am I wrong in thinking it was missing a little something? Let us know in the comments below.

Fresh off a short run with the Legendary Hieroglyphics crew, Landon Wordswell is releasing a new single from his forthcoming album, New Flexico. The Santa Fe, NM resident is also in the midst of preparing for his national tour alongside Elzhi & Skyzoo and will present his new EP on the road. Landon’s first cut from the EP features the New Mexico favorite as well as one of the Sway in the Morning favorites, Def-i. This track along with the rest of the EP is produced fully by The Don Avelar.
I like how the beat starts on this track. Both artists spit straight fire on this track. The production of the song is top tier. The chorus is catchy and has the semblance of the story of Brute and Julius Caesar. If you remember the old tale, Brute was Caesar’s right hand until he betrayed him. The song is not only about the old tale but has it’s own twist and gives us a look into Landon’s story.
