REKS, N.O.R.E. & Saigon Pay Homage To Marcus Garvey (Video)
REKS and producer Hazardis Soundz, two weeks removed from the release of their joint album, Eyes Watching God, drop visuals for the single, “Garvey.”
The title is dedicated to the late Jamaican political leader Marcus Garvey, a prophet in the eyes of the Rastafari, and the track itself opens with a portion of a speech he delivered during 1924 in Harlem, New York. Garvey, who promoted a global economic movement centralized around the continent of Africa, delivers a powerfully motivational message dedicated to the pursuit of The United States of Africa titled, “Look For Me In A Whirlwind Or A Storm” (2:50).
“Garvey” is a boastful cut with additional bars from fellow New Yorkers Saigon and N.O.R.E. that reflects the same confidence and skills behind the mic that any true master of ceremony, including Garvey himself, needs in their repertoire to grab the attention of the people.
