REKS – Kites (prod. by Alchemist)

REKS says he too was bamboozled with the “hope” rhetoric on his new single “Kites”.

While REKS’ The Greatest X (pronounced as The Greatest Unknown) is not a comeback album, it is a return to force for the Boston wordsmith.  As he did on his previous stand-out efforts, REKS is back working with the industries elite producers (Large Professor, The Alchemist, Evidence, Statik Selektah, Nottz, Apollo Brown, Black Milk, Buckwild, STREETRUNNER) as he sets out to take the next step in his progression with The Greatest X.  “Over the past two and a half years I have been recording songs with the understanding this would be album number 10 for me and thus something monumental” REKS stated.  “The Greatest X is a valuable addition to my catalogue; and an important album for hip hop period. I liked the idea (double-album) because it would represent something special for album number 10.   The Greatest X is more of an experience than it is an album.  It is one of my proudest accomplishments.”

With “Kites,” (which was premiered today by Hiphopdx) REKS bears his soul over an eerie, hypnotizing Alchemist production and pens two passionate letters to individuals who have captured the world’s attention.  The first letter is addressed to Mumia Abu-Jamal, the activist and author who was imprisoned for the 1981 killing of police officer Daniel Faulkner.
