[ALBUM REVIEW] Revolution Zo – Sheep In Wolves Clothing

Sheep in Wolves Clothing Final Album 200


[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.

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 7.37.15 PMLet’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.

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 5.45.05 PM[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:

[WILKES-BARRE, PA] Jared Xavier makes another appearance on NikkiSiixx.com with his latest single RIGHT WITHIN. And another dope track produced by @AbJonian. “How you ain’t going to win if you’re not right within?” Damn, Jared Xavier making a lot of valid points on this one. I really like the production on this one, with electric and fast paced. Kinda reminds me of the soundtrack to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind. Don’t believe me watch the movie yourself. But yet RIGHT WITHIN still remains mellow. You can definitely move your head to this one. Be on the lookout for more content from Jared Xavier.

EP Review: GiZMO TAiLz – Mugiwara

gizmo tailz mugiwara ep


gizmo tailz[MIAMI, FLORIDA] After making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com with his music video DON’T TURN AROUND, GiZMO TAiLz brings us his first solo project MuGiWara EP.

If you’re not to familiar with what a Mugiwara is, it’s actually means Straw hat. GiZMO TAiLz is an artist, director, editor, producer, and engineer. He’s even 1/2 Member of The Creative Duo RASKLz [PIZZV.LORDz]. This is not just your regular thirteen track EP. It would be safe to say it’s more like a dark experiment with house/techno with a dash of some hip-hop. You can say it’s an unfound sound in today’s music. For my review I’m going to break down my favorite tracks off the MugiWara EP, which are MuGiWara Awaken, UV RAY, Take Control, Don’t Turn Around, 6GOLDZ, Su​-​Zen​-​B [Heal], and Voyage [Filler].


UV RAY // MuGiWara Awaken have a visual along side the tracks. The tracks are really an introduction to thus the style and vibe GiZMO TAiLz demonstrates. In the Music Film, GiZMO has a very unknown and strange power, and a love for pizza. The video is extremely trippy, but cool in a sense. Inspired by anime Video Games And Real Life Situations. The Young PIZZVLORD Looks For a quick “Slice” and what new Powers he’s Awaken Between The 2D And Real World. As Gizmo Falls Into A Tranced State, his visions are becoming powered. Now on a mission to create a New Wave. Did he really find a ForBidden Pizzv Crest? Directed and Edited by GiZMO himself, and Fimed Co. Directed By eqobKING.

TAKE CONTROL – The vibes on this one remind me of Kid Cudi’s Man on The Moon: The End of Day. “Let The Music Take Control” is repeated throughout the track with some melodies. In a sense it’s kinda like putting you in a trance.


This ain’t your ordinary music video, this visual definitely grabs the title for unique and dope graphics. GiZMO TAiLz is an inspiring artist that creates music in many different forms of hip-hop and can tap into alternative house genres. His visual DON’T TURN AROUND begins at the start of a retro fighting video game that eventually turns into a real life ninja, who is set to get The Pizzv Crest. GiZMO TAiLz transforms into Ninja Formation and Fights Dragoro. The visual also takes place at this years Florida Supercon 2k15. DON’T TURN AROUND is a music video like no other and definitely sounds like something new. Gamers can enjoy this visual too.

6GOLDZ – Considering GiZMO TAiLz self-produced the entire project, you can find some really catchy melodies. I found it on this track 6GOLDZ. Very simple, but when he starts rapping about his 6 gold teeth, it goes really well on beat.

Su​-​Zen​-​B [Heal] Even though this track is only instrumentals you can really dig this clubby vibe, GiZMO is trying to bring to the table. Another good instrumental is Voyage [Filler]. If I was an artist, I would be interested in seeing about working on getting production from GiZMO TAiLz.

An Amazingly Self Built Dark & Trancy 13 Track EP Made For Gouls Of the night. Join The Journey Of Pain and Happiness As the Sleeping Dragon Awakens and Creates a New Path With his Unlocked Rare Power“. – GiZMO TAiLz

alex-wiley-one-singular-flame-emoji


Even though this project was released back March 2015 I feel like you need to download it like right now! Why because Alex Wiley presents us with his One Singular Flame Emoji EP which presents us trance like flows over psychedelic/drum & bass production. It was pretty dope how Wiley released his project directly to his fans who were following him on twitter. Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 10.49.50 PM They were able to get the first listen. One Singular Flame Emoji EP is definitely on another level.. Favorite tracks off the EP are: Whip, Solo, Spark Something, Right Right featuring Kembe X, Ready, and Top of The World. We had featured Right Right on NikkiSiixx.com view what I thought out about the track review. Wiley was working on a proper follow-up to his Village Party. He was under major stress because he was focusing heavily on concepts, themes, and the pressures associated with following up a critically & fan approved project. He was able to devote 30 days Alex Wiley was making fun songs that reminded him about what he enjoyed most about rap. Currently Alex Wiley is closing up on his new LP. Stay in the loop with Alex Wiley by following him on his social media links below, you never know what to expect.
