Rey Res – Heart of The City (Album Stream)
San Jose, California Hip Hop artist Rey Res finally releases his anticipated album Heart of The City. He’s been hard at work for the last few months with the releases of the videos Duck Down and the latest The World. Check out more information about the album:
Similar to playing chess, Rey Res applies a methodical approach to his music. Heart of the City is a coming-of-age story. The album opens with the celebratory “Prelude,” with Rey Res rapping over a sample of The Muse’s cover of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good.” After flexing his bars on “Prelude,” Rey Res switches the vibe and showcases his storytelling ability as he recounts the hardships his parents faced emigrating from The Philippines to the US on “The Story.” At his core he stays true to his West Coast roots, with Okayplayer stating, “Rey Res makes his regal presence felt across the project, which plays like an homage to Cali’s celebrated G-Funk era.” One example of that is the single “Let It Bang,” but this doesn’t stop him from flexing his versatility, as on the soulful track “The World“ Rey Res details how his “good was never good enough,” and the troubles that can arise when you chase a dream that your family doesn’t approve of.
The new album also features Hiero’s Pep Love & Casual and Zumbi. Check out Rey Res’ new album Heart of the City and leave a comment below.
