RV REVEALS TRACKLIST FOR UPCOMING PROJECT ‘SAVAGE’
RV has released the tracklist to forthcoming Savage project.
The list also involves producer credits on each of the tracks, exposing some familiar names we can look forward to listening to. Ranging from MK The Plug to Lowks, the overall project can be expected to be a madness.
It’s UK Drill in its most unapologetic form, no coded language or pandering to audiences with mainstream sounds. Just some great wordplay with plenty of quotable lyrics over a variety of Drill beats with a heap of crud-talk. It’s music that leaves your face with a constant screw-face, as if you just heard a filthy drum and bass drop in The Sugarhouse, the difference is that it’s his lyrics that make you feel that way.
RV makes it clear who he is an artist, he unremorsefully exposes you to the violence in and around his life through his wordplay, lyricism and aggressive flow. It’s obvious that the street life that he lives has influences his lyrics. RV clearly isn’t just a “Roadman” who’s deciding to put on a balaclava and make some music videos, he puts a lot of thought into in his wordplay: whilst some of them play off obvious popular culture references, such as Premier League football, some relate directly to his experiences or even show his intelligence – despite the harsh manner in which they’re delivered.
The best example of the evident personality in his music is the EP ‘I’m a Savage’. It’s quite likely you’ll decide RV is a deplorable, violent person who should be in jail for the rest of his life, and that’s a reasonable conclusion after listening to this EP. But you won’t be able to stop bopping your head. You’ll be quoting his lyrics to anyone who will listen – including yourself – and his punchlines will even make you laugh, impress you, or make you rewind and listen to the whole song again.
Savage is now available to pre-order on all platforms here.
