REKS was a breakdancer in his teens and was part of a local B-boy crew called Funk Town Connection. By the time he entered college at University of Massachusetts Amherst, REKS had built a reputation for himself in the local Boston rap scene, but then eventually quit school to begin recording for Brick Records. A few 12″ singles, “I Could Have Done More” and “Fearless,” arrived first in early 2001, before Brick issued his debut LP, Along Came the Chosen, later that year. This earned him nominations for Hip-Hop Album and Artist of the Year by the Boston Music Awards. REKS worked with DJ Premier, Styles P, Alchemist, Hi-Tek, and many others on his 2011 album Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme. Share...

Rebelmatic – NYC Hardcore Punk / Hip Hop

Rebelmatic – NYC Hardcore Punk / Hip Hop

NYC’s Rebelmatic is playing at Jimmy’s Saloon in Newport, Rhode Island on Saturday 4/8/17! They’ve been featured on AFROPUNK and their sound is described as “James Brown in a Mosh Pit”. They’ll be joined by The Black Kennedys, The Skinny Millionaires, United Soul Alliance and Universal ZU Disciplez for this genre-defying night of live music! $7. 9-close. Strict 21+ RSVP on Facebook REBELMATIC rebelmaticnyc.bandcamp.com Firmly rooted in New York’s Punk and Hardcore ancestry, Rebelmatic has self-sworn hip-hop purists, moshing alongside skate punks. They’ve got the respect of the legion of hardcore kids stashed away in the wilds of Brooklyn and Long Island. They can cast a wide net, with successful results because their personal brand of Brooklyn rock has more NY hard-knocks authenticity than most. Despite their NY pedigree the band’s sound is a trippy “what-if” game.   Judas Goat by RebelMatic Share...
