This is the brand new video for REKS Hands Up (Wink Wink) which has been uploaded to Brick Records’ YouTube page, which is taken from the upcoming album “The Greatest X” available this summer.
REKS comes back to Hip-Hop Kings with an excellent new video (directed and edited by Xander Z Hayes) which really highlights the rappers’ ability and consideration as one of the best upcoming in the Hip-Hop world. REKS explains “Hands Up (Wink Wink)’ was made as a wake up call to those tuned out to our realities and engaged by societal distractions. In essence, I believe when a class of citizens are oppressed for an extended period of time, there is a point where they have little choice but to awaken. In today’s America, not much has changed for the masses who were labeled 3/5 of a person in The Constitution. At the song’s root is the idea of being policed differently from our neighbors solely on the basis of our melanin. We are shot in the streets like dogs and described as radical when defending the idea of our freedom.”
