Revelation’s Hollywood Afrikans LP is paying tribute to the New Afrikan movement showing his social consciousness with the album being based on social issues that Basquiat touched on in all his paintings. Hollywood Afrikans is an abstract expression of Revelation’s life given in poetic rap style to shed light on important social issues of adversity.
All the important issues such as education, gang culture, mass incarceration, addiction, mental health and religious incertitude are mentioned in Hollywood Afrikans. Revelation is producing this album under his Lifestyle Brand Knowledge + Wisdom = Understanding, Inc. targeting at-risk youth re-introducing them to the revelations of the Nation of Gods and Earths known as the 5 percenters.
