REKS Has A New Album Coming & The 1st Single Is “The Recipe” For Dopeness (Audio)
Veteran MC REKS is preparing to release a star-studded new album, his first since 2014. The Greatest X (pronounced The Greatest Unknown) hits stores this Summer, and features production from Large Professor, The Alchemist, Evidence, Statik Selektah, Nottz, Apollo Brown, Black Milk, Buckwild, Streetrunner and more, and includes guest verses from R.A. The Rugged Man, Termanology, Planet Asia, Rasco, Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson, Edo G and other notable MCs.
In speaking about the album, REKS says “my goal is to return to the simplicity of dope bars over dope beats formula, in a time where lyricism is lost on too many listeners. I want my name in the forefront as the alternative to today’s typical music choice.”
REKS’ lead single, “The Recipe,” is produced by Nottz, with cuts by DJ Kerosene, and it delivers on the Boston MC’s promise. Opening with cuts of “guess what’s on the menu for breakfast,” REKS sounds hungry on the track, as he attacks it with unwavering ferocity.
