I see no love from Reks around here, one of the best MC’s doing it right now. He’s released 3 albums last year with another one dropping in a few weeks. Quality and quantity. A real throwback rapper, from the boom bap era. don’t sleep on Reks.

He’s pretty good, I like some things

he’s kind of underwhelming/forgettable imo though.

To me Reks is everything but underwhelming. What he says is very potent, I wouldn’t call it political but man he says some real shit. He makes you wake up. Whether it’s about the hood, or the system, he’s going crazy. He’s in the same mold of Guru (both from MA) way he rhymes and he’s got the mind state of Tupac. And he’s rhyming over boom bap beats from Statik Selektah or Premier most of the time. It’s perfect

Suicide Note is a incredible verse. One of the best I’ve heard. Everything is on point, about the south killing mainstream hip hop, new york falling off, and the state of hip hop. And his flow was amazing. This shit embodies the hip hop I love. “I’m not trying to crank dat, joc, or walk it out/Either I’m blind or hip hops dying in the south.” “No more classic shit/no more Shook One’s to blast in the whip”

“If this why Mims is hot, and this is why I’m not, put a bullet in my brain bury me with 2pac”

And that master P line had my dying. “Master P saying I should stop saying nigga……FUCK THAT they bought that nigga out” ahhh that shit is hilarious. Reks was just going off on these guys.

Nobody has been releasing as much music as him the past few years, and it’s all quality.
