Spotlight on REVOLT: Realname McCoy ft. Drü Oliver, "Limbo"
“[It’s] just meant to make people want to dance.”
McCoy is an up-and-coming artist whose sound rivals other rappers on the rise. Fans say his distinct vocals and playful lyrics have established him as one of the ones to watch. As a former member of D.C.’s popular rap duo Beyond Modern, he gained notoriety and coverage as one of the best underground emcees from several media outlets.
Now venturing out as a solo artist, his premiere single “Limbo,” featuring Drü Oliver and produced by The Official, combines creative verses layered over a catchy beat that is impossible to forget. Fans are anxiously anticipating McCoy’s upcoming project, a collection of songs full of stories and experiences he fondly refers to as being “loosely based on women.”
Get to know McCoy in his own words:
My sound in five words or less: Bouncy, energetic, anthemic jams.
Best part of making this video: Working with Jakob Owens. I’ve been a fan of his work for some time now, so it was exciting that we finally got this opportunity to collaborate. It was long overdue. Also, it gave me the perfect excuse to pull up on the left coast.
What inspires your art: Mainly past relationships. I look at every relationship I’ve had with a woman, whether it be a long-lasting girlfriend or a brief encounter, as another chapter to my life. Each experience has taught me something new about myself that I might not have discovered otherwise.
Explain the concept of the song in one sentence: The concept for “Limbo” is very loose, and just meant to make people want to dance. It’s pretty rare for me because I tend to write songs that are overly conceptualized, so for “Limbo” I just wanted to have fun and make something I can get twerked down to haha.
