Rev Shines & Conway - Grimey Shit/Take Life (12" - Fat Beats Exclusive)
Questlove once announced to the crowd at a show in Portland, “Rev Shines built my record collection.” Shines has performed in over 15 countries, released mixtapes on his own label Shine Language, is 1/3 of the hip hop group Lifesavas whom Rolling Stone Magazine touted as a Top Band to Watch in '07, and DJs the most popular hip-hop dance party in PDX "Live and Direct". His mixtape series, “Today’s Good News” has a cult following and sells out immediately online and at record stores like Turntable Lab.
While working at the Portland landmark record store, Jump Jump, Shines met and sold records to music legends like Questlove, J.Dilla, and Easy Mo Bee. Most importantly, he met the proverbial King of House music production Kenny Dope, whom invited him on a world tour, DJing and digging in countries like Japan and Australia.
After 20+ STRONG years of contributing to the culture, House Shoes and Street Corner Music are proud to bring you his debut 12".
Featuring Griselda's main shooter, Conway The Machine, This record gives you a first person perspective of street life in Buffalo. Shines' sinister production provides the perfect scenery for Conway's grimey tales.
Limited to 500 copies, with controversial artwork from legendary Los Angeles visual artist ABCNT, this record will not be around for long. This will be exclusive to vinyl, with no digital sales or streaming.
Street Corner Music does it again.
