Watch the interview below, and let us know if you want to hear Revenue’s single on Power 98!
Up and coming rapper “Revenue” is taking the
North Carolina rap game by storm. Born and
raised on the south side of Charlotte,
Revenue has always been a natural born
hustler. Growing up as the eldest of three and raised by
his single mother, Revenue embraced his passion for
music and combined it with his understanding of a
“true hustle.” Wanting to remain one step ahead of the
game, he knew he had to beat his competitors at all
times, which is how he acquired his stage name,
Utilizing his knowledge and strategies of the game
Revenue realized the good and bad trials of the
industry but despite adversity and negativity this
Carolina vet managed to “bounce back” with a hustle
hard mentality that prompted him to push forward and
grind. Hard times have taught Revenue how to maneuver in the game. The ability to make wise
decisions led Revenue to team up with fellow business partners Gerah Wallace and Tae Miles. Together
they formed Apply Pressure Entertainment (Ape Mob).
In September 2009, Revenue released his first mixtape titled “Less Chat, More Racks” with fellow North
Carolinian DJ Lil Bee. Five months later he released his second mixtape, a sequel to the first, “Less
Chat, More Racks Vol.2.”
Within a short time span, Revenue has continued to cause positive havoc
in the North Carolina music scene. By staying true to himself and his
music he has created a certified street buzz from the Carolinas all the
way to the ATL gaining attention from rappers such as Rocko, whom he
collaborated with to produce the hit “Automatic”, and Young Buck to
create “Taking Chances”.
In 2010 he was plugged on p. 94 in the December/January issue of The
Source Magazine garnering national attention for the artist. This set the
table for his much talked about 2011 Mix Tape entitled “Less Chat,
More Racks Vol. 3” with “Bobby Bushay” as the hot lead single. The
hot video for “Bobby Bushay” can be seen on WorldStarHipHop.com.
Far from a water boy, Revenue is definitely living up to his name by bringing in a consistent flow and
booking countless shows! He has managed to dominate this “Open Market” by bringing creativity and
substance to rap.
So say “Good Bye” to the bubble gum rap phase and make sure you learn the name Revenue…Less Chat,
