Reks – “The Recipe” (prod. Nottz) (Video)

blame it on JES7 August 15, 2016

“Let the wack rap die with the rest of these fools..”

If you’ve been keeping tally of every release Reks has put out within say, I don’t know, the last three months entire year, you’d surely have noticed the Lawrence, MA lyrical leviathan is A: completely fed up with the masses being fed with a constant stream of doo-doo music pouring out of speakers left, right and center mass; and B: his hunger to be labeled the best is palpable — you can almost hear the rumble of emptiness we all get when we’re in the need to eat, eat, eat in every new song and video he drops.

Whether he’s showing off his wicked “Jump Shots” with Buckwild, tackling the prevalence of too many black men being incarcerated (“Kites” prod. Alchemist), handing out “B*tch Slaps” with R.A. the Rugged Man or taking to the skies with his “Airplane Gang” — every new release that has been leading up to his latest album The Greatest X has a bit of something that someone will be able to grasp on and relate to.

So what exactly does it take to put out consistent burner after scathing burner? Well, he and Nottz already gave you “The Recipe” back in May, but in case you need a visual representation, Malcolm Reks takes you into the kitchen to reiterate the key points. Check out the world premiere of the video up top and peep the tracklist for the two-disc The Greatest X (aka The Greatest Unknown — which arrives on Sept. 9th — below.
