Born & Raised in the deep southern state of Anniston, Alabama. The recording artist Revelation says “Don’t get it twisted now,I’m not just from Anniston, Alabama. I also grow up in Georgia and California – my family is spreaded out everywhere.” Living with different kinfolk led to traveling from one part of the country to another; Therefore,this opened Revelation’s mind and prepared him for a lifetime of entertainment. Acknowledging his deep spiritual roots, Revelation applies wisdom, knowledge and understanding to his musical approach.
Performing since he was 11 years old, Revelation accepts getting double takes from people due to an uncanny resemblance to his iconic cousin, Tupac Shakur. Despite all the admiration, Revelation keeps a down-to-earth stamina, because he wants people to remember him as an authentic soldier of God, a warrior and Makaveli-trained legend who touches young and old souls alike. “I want folks to know I’m a Godly man, a father, a brother, an uncle, friend and businessman.” As a self-inspired artist, music is Revelation’s passion. He writes about trials people go through and grew up listening to the sounds of his cousin Tupac, along with Southern-based acts like Outkast, Goodie Mob, 8 Ball & MJG, The Geto Boys, Scarface and Too Short, which have all influenced his style. Revelation credits Nashville’s own Ambassador Ray for providing workshops and formal training in etiquette, as he steered Revelation onto a path that took him through drama class and numerous talent shows. Winning 1st and 2nd place trophies from talent contests in high school, Revelation often booked himself to perform in local shows; he went on to dominate performances at New York music conferences, Juneteenth Heritage Festivals and at Jacksonville State University. As a collaborating artist, he performed with acts like D.J. Jelly/Big Oomp, D.J. Montay, Baby D, T.I., Pastor Troy and Wu Tang Clan. These relationships led to associations with labels like Makeveli Music Group, Universal Music Group and Sony.
Among Revelation’s goals is to be a universal artist, creating historic music from the depths of his soul. Pulling creative juices from so deep, he basks in the realm of unpredictability as he finds amazement in his own creations. Reflecting upon his past achievements, Revelation secretly states, “If I can amaze myself, I’m going to amaze the world at large!” That’s what you can call “being in this world, but not of this world.”
Currently residing in the music mecca of Atlanta, GA, Revelation has established a growing network, while expanding his net worth. With plans to breathe life into a stagnating music industry, he is focused on growing physically and mentally in order to become highly successful as the year rolls on. Poised to dominate the charts and sell out tours during 2017, this modern-day philosopher can jump on any track and unleash a spontaneous reign of lyrics that will leave the mind mesmerized in awe as he simply states, “I want to teach a nation.”
