[CALIFORNIA] Releasing his second single off GIRLIE MAGAZINES his newly released album COVERUPS by hip-hop artist The Wilde. The track empathizes the opportunities of giving people second chances. Hoping the best will come back once more. The Wilde discusses his first love, summer nights, first heartbreaks, and Warped Tour. I really like how the track was fused from “A Lack of Color” by Death Cab for Cutie and “Against the Bottom” by Grieves. Dope track! Stay tuned from more from The Wilde and don’t forget to check out his new album COVERUPS.
Making his return on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop lyricist J. Nolan with his latest short one-take style music video called GAME POINT. This visual is to get things started after he took a bit of a hiatus due to focusing more on performing live at shows, getting his music licenses, and building relationships within the music business.
GAME POINT serves as the introduction to his forthcoming project entitled Rise of ATLantis. The project is dedicated to his home town of Atlanta. Which in wants to create a balance of lyrical driven content, soulful hip-hop, and a bit of trap music. I find the visual to be interpretative. As you see him recite his lyrics in the elevator once he’s down he’s on the way up. Looking forward to hearing more dope content from J. Nolan.
[LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have emerging rap artist Caine bringing us his latest single titled SUMMER NIGHTS. The chilled out anthem reflects his life experiences with this fusion of hip-hop and R&B. I see Caine expresses the increase in his support has brought him attention from the ladies. In this case, are they just calling him cause his balling now? It don’t matter to Caine, cause he’s living his life to the fullest, without the need to be tied down. Enjoy SUMMER NIGHTS and don’t forget to press repeat.
Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we got hip-hop artist Lazer Beam Green with his official professional debut single RIDE WITH ME, featuring Maizey Parker. On his track, he talks about road tripping with family and friends. Reminiscing on some good times regarding long road trips to advance in his musical career, over a catchy beat produced by Jamison Stokdyk of Sheboygan Recording. I thought the intro to RIDE WITH ME was pretty interesting with the Voice for Maps directing you to Lazer Beam Green, it’s like setting you up on the journey you’re about to embark on.

POPOVA: FEMALE EMPOWERMENT OR RADICAL FEMINISM? POPOVA was written and created by Dre Torres and Alex Valdes, a New York / Miami based filmmaking duo best known for their feature-length documentary THE LAST TAINO. The book features stylish black & white artwork by Yasmin Liang (STAR TREK, STEED AND MRS. PEEL), and variant cover art by Amancay Nahuelpan (CLANDESTINO, YOUNG TERRORISTS).
After reading the first issue of the POPOVA, I can’t wait what’s in store with Scarlet Rose’s battle and will she be able to get away from the woman organization who targets male oppressors, that she used to be apart of?
It was a suspenseful read, the illustrators portrayed the story perfectly. The new comic book POPOVA is a revenge fantasy in the vein of Inglorious Bastards, explores the idea of reversing society’s gender stereotypes by depicting women in the role of the aggressor. Just goes to show woman can be badasses too! I don’t want to reveal too much of the story, but know it’s definitely worth it.
According to co-creator Dre Torres, “Historically, men have used violence to oppress women. The characters in our book simply decided to fight fire with fire. They don’t protest, they don’t campaign. They kill.”

Female Gamers Are Here To Stay || In the dynamic modern day world, gaming is constantly changing. What was assumed to be a male dominated field now hosts a large number (a whooping 52%!) of female gamers. Though women have not been traditionally associated with gaming, the stereotype is slowly breaking with the numerous women coming out on platforms like Twitch to present their skills as advanced gamers. It is speculated that the number of females playing games has increased because of the rise of mobile technology. Now that all gamers do not have to spend their days holed up inside their rooms in the dim light of their play stations, it would be wrong to assume that the demographics have remained the same.
Women have shown interest in gaming through mobile devices like smart phones and tablets. It might be possible that the rise in a more ‘casual’ type of genre in gaming has brought more women into the sphere that was previously considered almost exclusively male. From interactive puzzles to entertaining bingo games (which you can play here), women form the majority of players. And what about the male players? Well, they are not susceptible to any harm. Their position in the world of gaming has remained the same and will probably continue to be so even if the number of female players rises further. It is important to recognize that there is a need for homogeneity in the gaming industry so that games that were considered ‘typically male’ can cater to the females too. Gaming should rely on the skills of a player rather than their sex. Female gamers are here to stay and there is no denying the fact that their opinions will start changing the face of the gaming industry in time.

[CLARKSVILLE, TENNESSEE] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com we have multi-talented hiphop artist by the name of Revolution Zo, he also is a producer and songwriter. We have his latest project SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING. This soulful project containing ten tracks that really experiments with different styles of music variating from Hip-Hop, Trance, Soul, and Pop. Before we get into the music, let’s get to know a little bit more on who Revolution Zo is and back story.
Let’s go back 2003 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina where it all began. Revolution Zo started to create beats and sold them locally to other artists. But then his life shifted when mischief became a factor, he then moved to Clarksville, Tennessee. Revolution Zo was interested in expanding his craft by becoming a song-writer.
The benefits to creating music became like therapy sessions to ease with his troubles with his anger and depression. Revolution Zo embraced the Nashville music scene by showing support by attending and performing at shows. Getting noticed by Def Jam A&R in 2009, but due to some indifferences the contact was lost. Zo decided to take a hiatus and get ready for the next move.
In 2014, Revolution Zo had submitted some material that got a head nod of approval from 9th Wonder on his Ustream Listening Sessions. He even encouraged Zo that his music was dope and related to a different lane, that he should embark. Listening to his advice, Zo started to reconstruct himself and his music and starting to create his next project SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING.
I’m going to review my favorite tracks of SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING. I do have to say the artwork alone is extremely eye-catching and sets the mood right for the journey we’re about to embark on.
[01 PSALMS] Revolution Zo is expressing himself melodically through this power introduction. Somewhat hypnotizing Revolution Zo gets you tuned in. The track kinda reminds me that it’s a type of anthem. Gaining control of your life and staying focus no matter what you’re going through.
[02 STRANGE THANGS] The unique production makes it so easy to vibe too. Revolution Zo is about to flow on this track is effortless. Zo breaks down how he comes off a bit strange. When going through struggles he doesn’t like to involve other people. He keeps it to himself and solves it on his own. He takes his mothers words of advice to be grateful and pray for you’re blessings.
[04 NITE AT THE DISCO (FEATURING SKYE)] With this track is completely different from the rest of the tracks. This is fits more in a club late night getting the crowd hype to keep on dancing. Skye adds a nice back vocals on the track. This goes to show that Revolution Zo can adapt to any sounding beat. This track makes you want to move. This is a dope track.
[06 BLACK DESERT] Revolution Zo gets grimy on this dark track on what he feels regarding all the negativity live can endure. Its like the negativity speaks through the track on the deep vocal. With God on his side he will be able to defeat these demons and speak a better path.
[07 RUNNING AWAY (FEATURING LOLLIEVOX)] I feel like everyone can relate to this track. When dealing with a bunch of issues and feel like you can’t break through. You feel the best way to get out of it is by running away. But in the end you figure the best way to deal with your issues is facing them. Revolution Zo tone on this track gives us an artist that’s opening up and expressing himself the best way he can and that’s through his music. Lollievox makes an appearance on the track.
[10 SUMMER LOTUS (FEATURING RUFUS DAWKINS)] On this track Revolution Zo expresses how he feels about someone he finds attractive, smart, and could possibility fall in love with. R&B & Soul flows through the production while Rufus Dawkins adds some melodic vocals to the track.
“Rev. Zo musical style can be described as melodic rap with introspect, it would seem that he acquires ability to lay his insecurities on record and expose his philosophical personifications as an emotional artist, dealing with expansive and nebulous feelings in acute and often self-destructive ways” – Press Release.
This concludes my review on Revolution Zo’s album SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING. I broke down my favorite tracks, and overall it’s definitely a solid project. We would love to know what you guys think about Revolution Zo music. Make sure you stay in the loop and follow Revolution Zo on all his social media links below:
