  • GIOVANNI SNOW "AMBITION"

    Rapper/Song Writer,GIOVANNI SNOW, was raised in South Jamaica Houses in Queens.  He started writing rhymes in his early teens, inspired by his older cousin who was an emcee.  Rapping began as a hobby and developed into his passion and his way out of the projects. 

    SNOW spent countless hours in the studio writing and recording music.  He didn't let a day go by without putting pen to paper or touching the mic.  Needless to say it was a welcomed distraction from the violence and negativity in the projects.  "The more I wrote music and rapped, the more I saw myself grow as an emcee.  The more time I spent in the studio, the less time I spent on the block.  Music is my passion man, I was made for this." 

    His first mixtape, "SO COLD", released on DatPiff.com, made underground rap fans take notice.  His followed up with, "#SUPAVALID MIXTAPE", which became an instant street classic and solidified SNOW's spot as a respected emcee.  Tracks like, "Do It Again" featuring the late, great T.K.O. The People's Champ, "Funerals and Caskets" and "Certified Loopy", had rap sounding like Queens again!

    A certified triple threat, SNOW writes his own songs and hooks, creates original hooks for other artists and has even taught himself to compose beats.  His unique sound embodies Queens at its finest.  He is the voice for those dealing with the everyday struggles of living in the hood and fighting to overcome adversity and poverty to reach success.  This is evident on tracks such as, "Where the F--- Is Home" featuring TKO The People's Champwhere they touch on issues such as gang violence, peer pressure and racism. 

    GIOVANNI SNOW is determined to use his God-given talents to rise above the negativity and claim his rightful place in the rap  game.  His first two mix-tapes, "SO COLD" and  "#SUPA VALID" have been very well received by fans across the 50 states and they are now anxiously awaiting the release of "#SUPAVALID MIXTAPE 2", set to release this year.  He is currently promoting his new single, "AMBITION", which is available for purchase and your listening pleasure on iTunes, Spotify, TiDAL and Amazon Music

  • new music...KYLE KNIGHT

    Hip-Hop/Rap is a musical art that is reflective of the artist's life and their experiences.  We are fortunate enough to enjoy different styles of music through someone else's ears, so to speak.  And once in while there comes along an artist who dares to be original...

    KYLE KNIGHT is a lyricist, rapper and producer.  His latest project iaptly named, "THE TRUTH", contains three tracks, "Hey Sister", "Addiction" and "The Truth".  The lead single, "Hey Sister" deals with the issues women face in society.  "Hey Sister" happens to be my favorite track because of the message in it.  I feel like I've been writing this song all my life, incorporating different thoughts, experiences and situations women I know have gone through like tough break-ups, domestic abuse and promiscuity into the lyrics of the song.  I want this song to impact women in a positive way and remind them that they are respected and loved.", KYLE says.  "Addiction" deals with the epidemic of prescription drug abuse among our youth today and "The Truth" speaks about exactly that, the truth about the troubles we face in our communities.  He prides himself on using his music to spread knowledge.

    KYLE has been around music his entire life.  Growing up the son of a music producer, he spent a lot of time in his father's studio. During this time he developed a wonderful ear for music and a passion to create his own.  He learned many things about writing, creating and producing music as he watched his father remix and produce tracks for big names in music like Q-TIP, SWV and Public Enemy.  By the age of six years old KYLE was already writing lyrics to songs and learning to produce tracks!  

    All of KYLE's music is original and contains no musical samples or features from other artists.  He co-produced all tracks with the help of his father and The Rich Source production team.  He draws inspiration for his sound from a broad genre of musical influences including NAS, Michael Jackson, Kendrick Lamar, Adele, Chuck D of Public Enemy and Bruno Mars.  He describes his music as,  "Original, conscious, very lyrical and a lot of fun!  My songs are easy to relax and vibe to with a surprise twist...you'll receive a positive message.  I enjoy making fun records without offending anyone."   

    His new, authentic sound is an exciting breath of fresh air!  Catch KYLE KNIGHT performing these songs live at New York City's HARLEM WEEK FESTIVAL on Thursday, August 24, 2017.

  • New Artist Alert...SAM HVZE


    Meet Sameerah Pittmon and her musical alter ego, SAM HVZE,  from Uptown Philadelphia.
    She fell in love with music at around 6 years old while listening to her mom blasting music through the house.  "She would play everything from Mary J. Blige to Gerald Levert and I'd be right there singing along with her!"

    SAM HVZE began writing poetry at a young age. As the only child living with a single mother, she spent a lot of time by herself. She witnessed the many hard times her mom faced raising her alone. At the same time she faced struggles of her own when she began to question her sexuality. These factors made her relationship with her mother quite tense and they bumped heads often. With no one else to talk to, poetry became her best friend and the outlet she desperately needed to vent her frustrations.

    By the time she reached high school, she transformed into her alter ego, SAM HVZE, converting her poetry into rhymes. Hearing her poetry over beats was fascinating to her!  Now she was able to express herself and display her feelings through music.

    The very first song she recorded was "What I Want", produced by JXHN SCXTT.  When he played the track for her it was love at first sight.  She fell so in love with the track that the lyrics just flowed out.          “I was so taken by the track that it brought out a different side of me. A side that I didn't even know I had. It is definitely the best high I've ever experienced in my life!”

    Since that day she has continued to write poetry and songs and loves to freestyle over her favorite rappers' beats.  "I love music, it’s my passion. I want people to feel good when they listen to my music and to be able to relate to it.  I want heads to turn when my songs play.  I want my songs to be the ones you play on repeat because you never get tired of it.  I want people to get naturally high off of my music like I did when I first heard, "What I Want"."

    SAM HVZE aspires to have longevity in the music industry and heavily influence the game with her unique style.  Check out her latest track, “Freedom of Speech”, currently available for listening on SoundCloud.  Her music has already been featured on DESERT STORM RADIO' which is streamed worldwide to over 37 countries!  This is just the beginning...

    DRINK CHAMPS with N.O.R.E and DJ EFN

    Legendary rapper N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN have mixed up a cocktail of laughs and libations that have artists and fans wanting another round!  They first teamed up in Miami around 2010 as co-hosts on a satellite radio show for Sirius XM titled, “Militainment Crazy Raw Radio”.

    The energy and banter between the two was fantastic! This eventually gave birth to their DRINK CHAMPS PODCAST.  It first aired on the CBS Play It Network in January of 2015.  It was an instant hit!  Within the first season they had an astounding 5 million listeners a month.

    N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s DRINK CHAMPS PODCAST was now number one in the country.  This caught the attention of Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, who is always looking for ways to expand his empire.  Diddy had already worked with,and had a friendship with N.O.R.E. from his years as a part of rap-duo, Capone-n-Noreaga.

    And just like that it happened...REVOLT TV partnered up with DRINK CHAMPS and added it to their cable network. Less than one year after its birth, DRINK CHAMPS blended from radio into the television world on one of the biggest music channels on cable.  The first series of episodes aired on November 24, 2017.

    DRINK CHAMPS is a movement. It gives artists a new way to communicate information, and an even better way for us to receive it.”, says N.O.R.E.

    The guests are asked questions about their careers in the music business, their successes, struggles and other random, crazy questions from N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN.  The old adage, “a drunk heart speaks a sober mind.”, keeps this show interesting, as your favorite artists tell stories about themselves and the industry that shock and amuse us!

    DJ EFN adds, "It allows the fans to be a “fly on the wall” during conversations they may not otherwise have heard from their favorite artists.”  Don't miss your chance to be a part of the experience. New episodes of DRINK CHAMPS air every Friday on REVOLT TV
