To say REKS took the underground rap scene by storm would be an understatement. Over the last decade, he’s established himself as one of hip-hop’s most revered new artists with albums like Along Came The Chosen, Grey Hairs, Rhythmatic and Eternal King Supreme.
While REKS’ new project, 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 efforts, REKS is back working with the industries elite producers (Large Professor, The Alchemist, Evidence, Statik Selektah, Nottz, Apollo Brown, Black Milk, Buckwild, STREETRUNNER).
“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.”
REKS new album, The Greatest X, (pronounced The Greatest Unknown) is out now via Brick Records. Check out the first visual from the project, “H.I.P. H.O.P.” produced by Apollo Brown.
