Channeling Kansas City style with "in the club" swagger of Usher's "Yeah," James Christos' new song, "Revolt (Off the Wall)" has the big rock sound that's utilized to such great effect by the likes of Lupe Fiasco on "Superstar." It's a summer jam that is, indeed, on a different plain. Seriously, it's the first hip-hop single I've ever heard drop the word "demagogue," while at the same time maintaining its We don't give a fuck attitude.
The single drops on Tuesday, May 31, via Amazon, iTunes and MySpace Music. The full EP, Revolt, comes out a month later, on Tuesday, June 28. Stream the track by clicking below.
Christos' promotions company, Guerilla Movement, has its Off the Wall Wednesdays going down at Czar tonight.
