Hey everyone,

Notice anything different?

Welcome to the brand new REVOLT.tv! I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I have an exciting new and improved site to run, but I wanted to quickly share my thoughts on the revamp.

When I started working at REVOLT three very short years ago, I saw the site’s potential to completely dominate the journalism/media industry. All it needed were the right resources, writing team and leader. Today, we finally have all three. With this newly launched site, my goal is to continue REVOLT.tv’s push to being acknowledged as a widely respected and credible news outlet that always informs our Black and brown people of the unfiltered facts.

The truth is, ever since I saw Sean “Diddy” Combs launch REVOLT on The Notorious B.I.G.’s apartment steps – a less than 10-minute drive from my home in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn – in college, I knew that this was a company that I wanted to contribute to and help grow. With my leadership of REVOLT.tv, I’m proudly doing that, and this launch will only propel the site to new, unreached – and once unimaginable (to others not me!) heights.

When I wrote the site a brand-new mission statement after I began working here, I meant every last word and still do – perhaps even more today. It’s been used as a guide get the truth out to you, our valuable readers, and will remain just that:

REVOLT.TV is the online space for the unapologetic, authoritative voice of Hip Hop culture, which includes, but isn’t limited to, rap and R&B music, the Hip Hop lifestyle, urban entertainment, and social justice. Hip Hop was birthed by the disenfranchised urban community as a way to express the pain and struggles faced by the demographic; which was often ignored, mistreated and undervalued.

REVOLT.TV will be the digital space where these same people, who feel like their thoughts and opinions are overlooked, can loudly speak up and speak out about their world. From their joys, pains, and everything in between; REVOLT.TV uses Hip Hop as a lens to focus on telling the urban community’s own truths, whether mainstream America’s feathers get ruffled or not. We do not bite our tongues. When we say we are Hip Hop and we are unapologetic, we mean it.

So, take a look around and let me know what you think. And please understand that the site is here to stay. If you’re reading this and you’re shook right now… you should be.

Welcome to the new REVOLT.


Yours Truly,

Isha Thorpe

Senior Managing Editor at REVOLT Media & TV
