REKS ft. Slaine & Torae - Rap-A-Nomics

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: REKS
Featuring:
Producer:
Statik Selektah
Album:
In Between the Lines Mixtape

Perhaps no theme is more integral to rap than the rags-to-riches story, in which an ambitious up-and-comer with nothing to his name but an enterprising spirit, talent, and a rock-solid work ethic hustles his way from abject poverty to the top of the music game, and lines his pockets along the way. On this newly-leaked cut off his latest street release, Massachusetts veteran REKS gives listeners a little lesson on Rap-A-Nomics, reminiscing about his days as a hungry youngster over a chilly, vibraphone-laced instrumental by East Coast heavyweight Statik Selektah. As usual, REKS excels on the mic, and guest emcees Slaine and Torae (the latter of whom readers may remember from Wun Tu Thr3 and Somethin’ to See) turn in equally impressive guest bars, each spitting a vivid description of his own humble beginnings. For more from REKS, check out the underground mainstay’s brand new In Between the Lines mixtape, released yesterday and available now online.
