- Artist: REKS
- Track: Garvey
- Feat. Hazardis Soundz, N.O.R.E, Saigon
- Producer: Hazardis Sounds
- Album: Eyes Watching God
Boston phenom REKS has never been shy about his affinity for the Black Power movement; in fact, he's at his best when spitting bars with a aggressively political edge. Thus, it's easy to imagine the passion and fire he'll bring to a joint named after Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican political icon associated with Black Nationalism and Pan-Africanism. Over project collaborator Hazardis Soundz's gritty, yet soulful street boardwork, the Brick Records signee delivers bars that drip with revolutionary fervor. Empire State reppers N.O.R.E. and Saigon contribute a pair of similarly bracing guest 16s. Eyes Watching God is scheduled for release next Tuesday, July 15, but Booth readers will get a sneak peek at the project the preceding Monday, when it hits The DJBooth for exclusive streaming.
