The Best Rap Album of March 2011- Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme by Reks

March saw some very disappointing releases such as Snoop Dogg's Doggumentary which is as corny as the title and I'm a Snoop Dogg fan so don't get it twisted. E-40's Revenue Retrievin', I never got this cat at all and nothing is going to change that with this album. Bizzy Bone's Mr. Ouija, we'll I'm glad the dude has a job there's not more good I can say about that album.

This rest of the March releases were pure bullshit.

Many people claim that my ear has an East Coast bias and I wouldn't attempt to completely refute that but I have no problem acknowledging great hip-hop no matter where it is from.

With that said, I am going to have to go with another East Coast artist for this month's choice of best hip-hop album of the month and I am going to chalk it up to a resurgence of outstanding rappers from the East and the fact that the West has simply gotten lazy with the beats and rhymes. Just the cycle of things I suppose.

With no further ado the best hip-hop album of March 2011 is Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme by Reks and he won by a mile.

Straight out the box Reks hits you over the head with a joint produced by DJ Premier titled 25th Hour.
Embracing the era gone by Reks hangs ten on Premo's sonic Tsunami of cuttin', scratching and sampling.

The rest of the album brings the same force with production by Statik Selektah, Pete Rock, Alchemist, Hi-Tek, Fizzy Womack, Blaze P and Mike Frey making for an album that is in my humble opinion an instant classic.

My favorite songs The Underdog produced by Blaze P and Cigarettes produced by Fizzy Womack and featuring lil' Fame from M.O.P. And should be the next releases if the folks at Brick Records really know what's good and want to make this cat a star.

The Best Hip-Hop Album of March 2011 is clearly Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme by Reks and needs to be in your collection today.
