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.

Audible Doctor’s been making huge strides since we first heard him over here with his crew the Brown Bag All-Stars. Besides helping his team of underground all-stars craft their unique brand of boom-bap, he’s been busy working with a guy named Fredro Starr from some group known as Onyx. That’s not all, though. Unbeknownst to A.D., 50 Cent not only chose one of his tracks, but recorded to it and leaked it at the top of the year, exponentially increasing the double threat’s rise to elite.
HipHopGame sits down with Audible Doctor to discuss his breakout year in 2013, how the 50 Cent track happened, crafting an album with the legendary Fredro Starr, his Brown Bag crew, and much more in this exclusive interview.
