“This Or That” – Review Of Reks’ Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme

By | 14 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/reks-25th-hour-video">Words by C. Paicely Go ahead and breathe. After sitting through the endless utterance of verbal venom that is R.E.K.S. (Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme), the average listener will want to. On his newest project, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/reks">the Massachusetts duelist</a> effectively tears holes in a decidedly sub-par industry, seemingly without inhaling.

Statik Selektah & Termanology Commanded 1982 In 2010

By | 7 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=134874"> Earlier this year, the unfortunate death of of Keith "Guru" Elam from Gang Starr saw the end of an era where a producer and MC created a unified duality to consolidate the quality control for an entire LP. Or has it? 2010 has seen a rebirth of the practice where cohesiveness trumps catchiness.Duck Down Records in particular saw in-house relationships blossom into exceptional projects (Marco Polo & Ruste Juxx's The eXXecution and Skyzoo & Illmind's Live From The Tape Deck) while female rapper Eternia made a significant impact with her debut with MoSS At Last. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/termanology">Termanonlogy</a> and <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/statik-selektah">Statik Selektah</a> have appeared on one another's projects with noteworthy contributions.
