Rekast – REKAST [Video]
Toronto, ON – Rekast (one of T-Dot’s youngest rhymers to emerge, of late) recently released his latest video for his self-titled track entitled “REKAST.” Young Rekast goes in on a Flying Lotus beat, and achieves a distinct soulful hip-hop vibe.
The track speaks to all of the pressures and obstacles, that I’m sure most adolescents can identify with. Rekast treads back into the streets and haunted areas that define the distinctly urban-rustic look of the Screw Face capital. The video was directed by Andrea Martina. Check it out below.
Spitting lyrics like, “This aint love/ This aint f*ckin’ with the b*tch up at the club/ This is muthaf*ckin’ music that I had to make to know,” Rekast breaks out on this Souls of Mischief- esque beat with his incredibly thoughtful lyrics that demand attention.
Rekast displays a great amount of talent for such a young rhymer. One of the nicest touches on the visuals for “REKAST” is that this video turns attention away from the weed and lean-obsessed face of Internet hip-hop, and seeks to elevate the mind. Rekast and his MadHouse crew perform their first show on Feb. 21 at Toronto’s Opera House and I really can’t wait to see how this young MC gets down in living colour.
