Madison’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival has evolved year after year, and while it’s style and location have changed on multiple occasions, one thing that’s consistent is that it always supplies the students of the University of Wisconsin with some great music. Last year was our first year on-site for Revelry, where fans saw great performances from Chance The Rapper, The Chainsmokers, Mick Jenkins and AlunaGeorge, just to name a few. This year’s stellar lineup was no exception to the great lineups of the past. Now hitting stage at Madison’s historic Orpheum Theatre, Revelry saw some great sets from ‘Tuesday’ rapper/singer and OVO Sound artist iLoveMakonnen, GOOD Music‘s Hudson Mohawke, Milwaukee’s talented emerging artist WebsterX, a surprise appearance from IshDARR, Minnesota rapper Finding Novyon, and many more!

Milwaukee artist WebsterX is everything you need on your iPod right now (people still use iPods, right?). After blowing everyone away with the production of his music video for ‘doomsday’, the Wisconsin rapper has hit the ground running. From opening for Lupe Fiasco at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, to getting a ton of co-signs by some major blogs, WebsterX is probably his most talented when it comes to putting together some amazing visuals for his best records.
Today WebsterX dropped his music video for ‘Everything’, a Q the Sun produced song of their recent KidXEP. Directed by Cody Laplant & Damien Blue, who produced a number of WebsterX’s previous music videos, the video for ‘Everything’ is easily one of the best of the year. This one isn’t just a music video though, it’s a movie.
Let the video talk for itself. Check out WebsterX’s visuals for ‘Everything’ below.

Are music videos a lost art in 2015? With MTV and VH1 airing more reality television programs than actual music videos, it is no surprise that a lot of artists have abandoned the music video route of promotion. Fortunately not all artists subscribe to such logic. Many superstar artists still know that fans crave visuals, even if they are streaming it from their phone or tablet.And a lot of emerging artists know that creating some dope visuals are a great way to gain exposure and put your name on the map.
