There’s a sea of exciting MCs out there, one being Philadelphia’s own Reek. His music is far more complicated than his rap moniker, and that can be heard on the bubbling wordsmith/producer’s new, heartfelt track, “Cloud 9.”
A boom-bap sample featuring accompanying chords played from an organ adds soul to a record Reek dedicates to his late cousin. With that in mind and a void in his heart, the City of Brotherly Love native rhymes from an emotional place; not from a perspective of personal loss, but rather passionate chants of perseverance.
“Cloud 9” will live on Reek’s forthcoming project, F.A.N.T.A.S.Y., due to release soon. Expect features from underground champion Reef the Lost Cauze, Philly legend Freeway, and more.
Hear the cut below, and expect a lot more from the rising artists in the future.
