Rek The Heavyweight Timeless
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Chill
The MC formerly known as Spawn was a founding member of emo-rap unit Atmosphere, but don‘t expect any whiny obsessing over ex-girls when Rek the Heavyweight touches the mic. The Minnesota MC‘s smooth, straightforward lyrical style has little in common with his former sparring partner, Slug, and everything in common with straightforward ‘90s lyricists like O.C. Unfortunately what Rek lacks is his Atmosphere producer Ant‘s forceful beats. On Timeless, his producers come with soulful, Tribe-y beats which sound nice but don‘t do enough to make Rek‘s rhymes pop.
