REKS Mourns The Good Things Gone On A Standout Large Professor Beat (Audio)
Double albums are never out of style. Today (September 9), REKS releases his tenth LP, The Greatest X. The New England MC is a 15-year veteran, who enjoyed a strong surge in his career eight summers ago with Grey Hairs. On that album, the Statik Selektah/ShowOff affiliate got critical cosigns from from DJ Premier and Large Professor, in the form of strong collaborations.
Rhythmatic King Eternal Supreme has kept those alliances tight in a highly respected stream of music. Just as he was on his 2001 debut Along Came The Chosen, the Lawrence, Massachusetts lyricist is a pillar of Independent Rap. “Gone Baby Gone” showcases the didactic delivery from REKS, on the subject of people’s disconnection from the way things were (and ought to be, in his eyes). From street violence to casual music consumption (and a few other issues), this is a verbal essay over an Extra P soundtrack that breaks new ground for the Main Source icon.
The Greatest X features R.A. The Rugged Man, Cali Agents, Reef The Lost Cauze, and Edo. G, among others.
