Rapper and YouTuber Lil Guillotine makes his stance clear on songs like “Thirst (Eat the Rich)” and “Crush I.C.E.” and tells Teen Vogue he chose his sobriquet “in order to emphasize the need for direct action over symbolic protests, and of course it references righteous revolutionary violence.”

-Kelly, Kim. “How The French Revolution Is Inspiring Today’s Online Anticapitalists.” Teen Vogue Magazine., 26 Nov. 2019

“Lil Guillotine is a rapper, YouTuber, producer, and activist out of Madison, Wisconsin whose message and motivation is based around the Free the 350 Bail Fund – including his new venture into audiobook reading.”

-“Educate Yourself on Racism, Sexism, and More With These Free Audiobooks:” Glitter Magazine., 2 Jul. 2020

“…Lil Guillotine, [is] a staple of both the local rap scene and of the [Free The 350 Bail] Fund’s hip-hop fundraisers…”

-Shukla, Sannidhi. “Free the 350 Bail Fund hosts its first hip-hop fundraiser of 2020.” Tone Madison., 2 Feb. 2020

“Part activist, part emcee, he’s released an EP as well as a slew of songs where he opines on such topics as abolishing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, the impacts of climate change and the faults of capitalism.”

– Potter, Steven. “Anarcho-rapper; Lil Guillotine fights the power through sharply worded music.” Isthmus Magazine., 24 Jan. 2019

Lil Guillotine, a Madison rapper with a knack for over-the-top lefty shit-stirring—during a recent protest of far-right groups at the state capitol, he handed out vuvuzelas emblazoned with his logo—has posted a video in which he states that the city is cracking down on hip-hop shows at Art In “because they had black folks.”

-Gordon, Scott. “How many people are supposed to be in this venue?” Tone Madison., 21 Jan. 2019

And then there’s Lil Guillotine. Instead of leaning into the thrash-rap that his name and descriptions like “agit-prop” and “anarchist” might connote, he instead leans into the rap of the Internet’s weirder corners, a la Lil B and Viper. On the hook of one of his recent cuts “Fuck ICE,” Lil Guillotine nonchalantly states over a jazzy beat, “Figgity fuck ICE, fuck ICE, fuck ICE, fuck ICE.” But, though simplistic and perhaps sardonic, Lil Guillotine’s verses also contain statements like, “We don’t need no cops, that’s a fable,” and “Borders are violent, that’s why we riotin’.” It would be easy to write off Lil Guillotine’s music as over-the-top satire, but I think that might overlook a clever stylistic choice. Given that memified styles like mumble rap prompt the listener to wade into the emcee’s muddied deliveries in order to uncover whatever lyrical absurdities lie underneath, Lil Guillotine instead surprises the listener with direct political statements and calls to action. Figgity fuck ICE indeed.

-Solo, Henry. “Madison calendar October 4 through 10.” Tone Magazine, 29 Sep. 2018

“…Lil Guillotine, whose song “Fuck ICE” is the brilliantly simple anti-fascist anthem we need right now.”

-Isthmus Magazine. 10/4/18

“Another standout is Madison’s lil guillotine, who raps prolifically over sparse productions, incorporating unexpected sound effects.”

-Isthmus Magazine. 6/28/18
