MP3 of the Week: Reks "This Or That"


Phoenix writer Chris Faraone checks in with this week's mp3 download...

If you know a lyricist with more wit and wordplay than REKS, then bark now or forever hold your peace. As demonstrated on two albums and a stellar free mixtape over the past three years, the Lowell native is a strong contender for the top MC spot in all of hip-hop — a “black Aristotle with bottles of beers in the backpack” who touches every base from chicks to politics in single bounds. On “This or That,” a teaser for the upcoming Rhymatic Eternal King Supreme, Reks starts by incinerating T-Pain and Lil Wayne and ultimately surfaces with righteous rewind-worthy ringers. Move over Hova, Reks is the new king of this rap shit, and he shows his worth September 21 at the Middle East in Cambridge. In the meantime, grab the MP3 below. _Chris Faraone
