Default Alejo's Hip-Hop Album of the Month

I can't commit to updating this that often, so monthly sounds good. Hopefully I can get some names you haven't heard of out there and people can get some new stuff in their playlists. So for June...

Reks - Grey Hairs

Probably the best CD of 2008 that you never heard. This guy is helping save the classic NY hip-hop sound. Even if he doesn't grab you, the production should. But I have a feeling he will. Wish I could give a better review, but I'm rushing it and put a professional review down at the bottom.

Stages (prod. Large Pro) - YouTube - Reks - Stages [Prod. Large Professor]

'Money on the Ave' ft. Skyzoo - YouTube - (Video) REKS - Money On The Ave ft. Skyzoo

Love Sweet Misery (prod. Statik Selektah) - YouTube - Reks - Love Sweet Misery


Professional Review
Grey Hairs - Reks | Album Reviews > HipHopDX.com

I'll zshare the album later if I have time. But if you enjoy it, consider giving it a buy, as these are the types of artists that could use the support. That or d/l it yourself, or wait for me.

His flow is nothing special, but I really like the beat to Stages. I might just get this.

Bump for some raw, gritty hip-hop. At least give Money on the Ave. a listen.

Skyzoo hits a "You can play with the bass, **** around with the treble, or you can play with the base and turn powder to pebble". Mmmmhmm. 'zoo's probably got one of my favorite flows out of NY right now

I just choose my 3 favorite. Premier did good on it but just wasn't one of my tops. The whole CD is ill though.

First time hearing this guy. I really like "Stages." Vocally, he is reminiscent of Jay-Z mixed with NaS. Lyrically it's a bit stunted, although truly a New York style. (hence sounding a bit like Jay-Z mixed with Nas) I'm definitely put off by the lyrics. The production is good though, thanks for the post.
