What do underground emcee REKS and snow have in common? Easy; they’re both Heavy in the Winter. Well, technically, since the artist lives in Miami, “winter” is a moot point—but if a blizzard were to inexplicably hit the Magic City, you’d best believe he’ll be ready. On this freshly-minted street/promo single, the Boston native touts his ability to survive and thrive in even the harshest climates. Joining the headliner over The Lion‘s wintry mix of string samples and harpsichord, Shafting rhymesayer Lucky Dice boasts of his own talent for braving the elements on the guest tip. Heavy in the Winter isn’t currently attached to any forthcoming project, but those who like what they’re hearing can keep it locked for the latest news and tunes from all involved.
