Genre: Hip Hop

On his second full-length release with Illect Recordings, The Canadian born rhyme writer lifts up his head, drops his guard and pours out his heart across ten self-produced tracks. The project comes together like a part journal and part motivational monologue. Eyes Across The Room is an earnest celebration of love and longevity as DIE-REK salutes his significant other for her ride or die brand of loyalty. He speaks his love language fluently over tinkling piano keys that sound like they were rescued from RZA's flooded basement. Ditty Dum Ditty Doo is a bespoke bop where DIE-REK speaks life atop a stuttering bass line with a stop and go flow.

He encourages the listener to embrace their one of one identity and live life with authenticity. The spaced-out melody is deceptively addictive, but the empowering message reaches home. In the spirit of community, He Paid It All finds DIE-REK clicking up with his friends Rel McCoy and Griffin. Neither one of them mince words about how their faith had been funded, and all three verses are declarations of humble gratitude. DIE-REK saves the best for last with the final song. Runnin', which is the album's true man in the mirror moment. DIE-REK pledges allegiance to God and the grind, promising to make use of grace and not waste his days on Earth. This particular slice of sound thrusts consciousness above the clouds with a dream-like sensation that shifts seamlessly between realms and reality. After years of losses and lessons, redemption is closer than ever. Written by Christopher Mitchel (Breaking Atoms)
