Genesis on Rap Genius

Several Days ago I released my single Genesis from my upcoming project “Escapism”.Now there’s a lyrical breakdown on the well known Rap Genius website. You can listen on the embed below or on the sites embed. Click here to go to lyrics.

Genesis is a song depicting the story of how I created music in 8 days similar to the book of the bible. Please support the project by purchasing the single for $1. I made the lyrics, track/album art, instrumental and mastered the audio. Thanks for listening and supporting the blog. Have a great day.


Free Write – Arsenic

So I’m trying to get into the habit of writing daily, so everyday I’ve decided to write 16 lines of poetry/lyrics and if I create something I’m proud of I’ll post it here for you to enjoy. (Ps. subscribe to my YouTube channel for more content) This week I’m adding an audio visual element.


By: James Revels III

Take a sip of these syllables as they settle in your heart like arsenic.

My name in the tree of life carved in. This intentional flame arson then.

As far as I came only look back when checking pedometers.

Flow spill out of me like broken glass or a colander.

Quotes in quilted patterns held together by sutures.

You haul me out I relocate your like a mover.

Succeeding now or later, though I prefer sooner.

Flirt with lady luck, though mother nature’s much cuter.

On this boat of life, we all know that death rows.

Capital punishment for he reward of joy, I suppose.

Uploaded to the Over-soul, These words I download.

The wisest men are the ones who say the most with their mouths closed.

So that makes me a fool, cool like frost bitten fingers.

No soliciting, Advice unheeded by deep thoughts that linger.

I see red when friends are blue. Smell ya later. Burnt Cedar.

Trying to get in tune like an orchestra or a singer

NEW MUSIC VIDEO – Man in the Mirror

Today is day 48 of my music making challenge and I decided to do something different. Instead of just a short music composition I decided to add lyrics and do a full scale music video all done since I woke up this morning. It’s based on my poem I posted earlier today of the same name. Enjoy!


Weird Genres: Abstract Hip-Hop?

Years ago I was in search of new music via Wikipedia, particularly hip-hop. I came across a list called “A list of Abstract Hip-hop” or something along those lines. The first artist on that list changed my view of hip-hop forever; Aesop Rock. Aesop Rock, not to be confused with ASAP Rocky, is an artist that debuted in 96 and he RARELY uses the same word twice. He even has the (According to Polygraph Magazine)  Largest vocabulary in Hip hop. I stumbled upon his then new single “None Shall Pass”and the dense lyricism struck a chord with me. I loved how his word play wasn’t based on similes and metaphors like most popular rappers. Aesop tended to use imagery and complex rhyme schemes to express himself which rekindled my love for hip hop and writing in general. I haven’t listened to too much Aes Rock since 2012 because his style and my style drifted,but to this day I still respect his artistry. While searching Wikipedia for “Abstract Hip hip” it redirected me to experimental hip hop instead and Aesop rock doesn’t get one mention on that page. Some people I remembered on the original listen were MF Doom and Cise Star. You should totally check them out.
