Pelé Rap's Revolutionary - "Dry Your Eyes" ft. KJ Conteh

We are so excited to premiere this heater "Dry Your Eyes" by up and coming, independent recording artist Pelé aka Rap's Revolutionary, featuring producer and hook master KJ Conteh. "Dry Your Eyes" is the second single off Pele's upcoming album The Vendetta, which will be released early 2013 on iTunes and other digital outlets. The track is perhaps Pelés most personal offering, documenting the pain and strife of having his father, Sydney Maree unjustly incarcerated. Listen to this song below now!

Pelé was born in Philadelphia, PA and spent nearly 10 years there before his family moved to South Africa. His Musical incluences growing up were the distinctive tongue-twisting styles of East Coast rappers like Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, and Big Pun. But his smooth, sophisticated delivery has been equally influenced by the works of Marvin  Gaye and Bobby Womack, two favorites of his American mother. Into this mxix came his South African father's idols: Miriam Makeba, Lucky Dube, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Paul Simon.

Pelé gained his first foothold in the industry with his debut project, Back to the Roots. The mixtape was distributed through and old-school grassroots network that generated brisk street sales in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Miami, and Los Angeles. The disc was warmly received and thus opened the door to 2007's The Vyndication Vol. 1...
