Adam Reverie is Detroit incarnate: blue collar, God fearing (and loving), and driven by a dedication to shed a positive light onto the recently splintered, downtrodden city that raised him and further to the world abroad. This is a simplistic, broader view of Mr. Reverie, yet a necessary one to tell his story. In 2015, Rev sits two years removed from his 2013 release, Father, Son, Brother, Friend, and now the 30 year old MC has compiled a brand new message from his hometown in the Motor City. Rev your engines.
With a variety of soundscapes from producers Eli Myles, Hunnit Andretti, Illuminati G, and others to unravel his story, WestSide Rev sticks to his guns with his quintessentially fervent, passionate flows and lyricism that caters to a substance first policy and saves all of the trending topics for the rest of the pack. Even as an MC for the people, Rev sticks his chest out a bit as well, confronting the critics and toting his talents while allowing his rhythmic thoughts and his spitting skills to do all the work. And as is typical of any man born of Detroit, work he has, and it’s paying dividends. The 9 track project has been well-received around the blogosphere from over here at LGU, all the way to being picked up by the team at DJBooth. Now, after long, tireless days of work, it’s time for listeners to feast on Rev’s fourth album, The WestSide Rev Project.
Take a listen.
