For the latest track in Cliff Savage's weekly #SavageSunday series, the Long Beach rapper has teamed up with Jetpack Jones and producer Don Diestro for "Revolution," a keyboard-led call to arms against the modern trappings of the digital age.
Inviting listeners to "witness the revolution in high resolution," Jones targets reality TV, smartphones and kids who don't go outside. In his verse, Savage lets us know his childhood dream of being a vet (which disappeared once he realized that "animals couldn't buy a jet"), and pulls some nifty flow patterns out of his back pocket. Diestro's beat centers around an earworming keyboard line and reads like a classy update on jazzy '90s hip-hop. All in all, a great collaboration from the trio.
I hope you notice I don't miss a beat, countin' sheep when I sleep
Niggas know my name, and on the track I always come with heat
When I was young, I used to wanna be a vet
Until I realized these animals couldn't buy a jet
