It’s not surprising that when we got up with REKS to do this interview, he was on the move, driving back to Massachusetts. Sitting still is something The Lawrence, Massachusetts product doesn’t seem able to do, as he just dropped his eighth album, Eyes Watching God. The album was produced entirely by producer Hazardis Soundz, who has done incredible work as a producer and engineer for N.O.R.E. and countless others. Eyes Watching God not only features sharp, socially conscious rhymes from REKS but also showcases more risk-taking from the MC, as Haz pushes the boundaries of REKS’s sound further than any of his past releases. ProfileWild caught up with one of the games most slept-on lyricists to dissect his new album, talk about his relationship with Statik Selektah and DJ Premier, go through some of his standout cuts over the past few years, talk about what it means to still be working with Brick Records, who put out his debut album Along Came the Chosen in 2001, and much more in this exclusive interview.

MicKey Boston and Melo Malo combine on their duo project, the long awaited “Mammoths, Goliaths and other Behemoths” album which features production by various producers of the likes of Jenova 7 and XEptional.
Dropping on a crisp Jenova 7 production, the Boston area producer customized the beat for the MicKey Boston and Melo Malo project. Both emcees remain undeniably fervent on their hiphop nostalgia and bring about Queensbridge legend Craig G to the fore. Jenova 7 brings about a trademark sound in order to compliment the track’s nostalgic concept.

Back in 2004, Sam Scarfo was the Fight Klub chance and was all over street DVDs like Smack. He was immediately signed to Def Jam during Jay-Z’s presidency and it was one of the only signings both Jay and L.A. Reid immediately agreed on. Long story short, the Plainfield, New Jersey native never dropped anything on Def Jam and was later released. As an independent artist, Sam Scarfo worked closely with Prodigy of Mobb Deep and stayed creating music, but his music from his Def Jam days sat on hard drives collecting dust. But last week, Sam Sceezy unleashed some of his standout tracks from his Def Jam days on the album 5 Million Stories, which has features from Nate Dogg, Ghostface Killah, Fabolous, and others and is available both as a free EP download or a deluxe album at all major music spots. ProfileWild chopped it up with Sam Scarfo on 5 Million Stories, Nate Dogg, his new music, where he’s been, the Hollow and Joe Budden battle, his battle history (including his one and only loss), his upcoming album with Ski Beatz, and much more in this exclusive interview.
