As we learned from his recent video interview with DJ Z, in everyday conversation, REKS is one chill dude. Not that that should come as a surprise – how could anyone who habitually cut records as blistering as new mixtape leak Pray for You (The Homicide Note) have any stress or aggression left for daily life? Boston neighbor Statik Selektah mans the boards, serving up an ominous synth-vocal instrumental (complete with a Chappelle-sampled intro and a hook drawn from Hova‘s Dead Presidents 2) as REKS rattles off all the things that have been pissing him off lately, including (deep breath) Obama’s arguable inability to create real change, MC Solar’s actions surrounding Guru’s death, hip-hop’s rampant materialism, wack rappers, skinny jeans, wack rappers in skinny jeans… and so on. It ain’t all negativity, though; he also gives props to those who deserve ‘em: “F*ck with me, f*ck with Gibbs, f*ck with Pill… the South, y’all killin’ rap still.” Does this cathartic banger leave you craving more? Seek and you shall find: the artist’s Booth-sponsored In Between The Lines (Vol. 2) hits our mixtape page late this month.
