Rappity Rap Meets Trap In Revivolution’s New Single ‘Skyf’

Listen to Joburg rap crew Revivolution's latest single.

One of the most solid rap crews out in South Africa right now, Revivolution just released a serious banger. The group are known for their backpack boom bap sensibilities, by way of street-centric bars and golden era production.
