REKS 'Jump Shots' (prod. by Buckwild; cuts by Statik Selektah)

The upcoming REKS album, 'The Greatest X', (pronounced The Greatest Unknown) is dropping September 9th, 2016 on Brick Records.

"Jump Shots" is a song that articulates in depth the idea made famous by Biggie Smalls, "either your slingin' crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot." Over an infectious head-nodder from Buckwild, assisted by a flawless cuts from Statik Selektah, REKS describes the limited options available to ghetto youth and the parallels between b-ball and hip hop. A die-hard Boston Celtics fan, REKS states, "I actually grew up idolizing the Bad Boys Isiah Thomas on the ball court. His grittiness and fearlessness was admirable."
"Jump Shots" comes just in time as The NBA Finals are now in full swing. REKS won't root for any team other than his beloved Celtics these days, but he is enjoying the shootout between Steph Curry and Lebron James. "Jump Shots" is the fourth release from 'The Greatest X'.

Havoc x The Alchemist - Buck 50's & Bullet Wounds (ft. Method Man)

It has been said that real gangsters move in silence. In the case of Havoc (of Mobb Deep) and legendary producer The Alchemist, the duo chose to let their music speak for themselves. On the newly announced collaborative album, The Silent Partner, Havoc serves as the smooth-talking, gangster mouthpiece to the Alchemist's gritty, one-of-a-kind instrumental backdrops.

One of the most decorated producers in hip-hop today, The Alchemist’s relationship with Mobb Deep dates back to 1999 when Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs introduced the then-upcoming producer to the revered New York duo. The Alchemist would go onto forge a strong bond with the group, resulting in a myriad of classic tracks throughout the years.

Today, the duo has let loose the second single from The Silent Partner featuring Wu-Tang brethren, Method Man. On "Buck 50's & Bullet Wounds," Havoc and Method Man display razor sharp bars over The Alchemist's bulletproof production. The song premiered via RapRadar.

The Silent Partner is a magnificently organic album that brings together one-half of the Mobb with their favorite producer for a modern day hip-hop classic. The Silent Partner features guest appearances by Method Man, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and Cormega and will be released on May 20th via Babygrande Records.
