Funky! King Harris is a deep breath of realness. Straight outta Long Beach (California, USA). King is his real name. His real cousin is TDE’s Jay Rock. Facts. And this “Nightmare On Wolff Street” project could very well be a career-maker for a career a lot of emcees might consider already ‘made.’ Here he is with another ‘scene’ from the “Nightmare”“You Got” (produced by Oh No).

REKS – The Recipe (Prod. By Nottz)

“The Recipe” is REKS on a musical mission. That is, it’s REKS over dope production by Nottz. It’s also razor-sharp cut-up of the dope by DJ Kerosene. Yeah, it’s all that and…

My goal is to return to the simplicity of dope bars over dope beats formula, in a time where lyricism is lost on too many listeners. I want my name in the forefront as the alternative to today’s typical music choice.
REKS

…Yeah, it’s what he said!
