Ecks Preparing Comeback With New Mixtape
Posted on July 1, 2006 by Jamie Slaughter
Only 10 minutes into their first recording session a stunned KRS-One uttered the words, "You are going to be a star; You are the future of hip-hop", this after watching a then teenage Ecks walk into the booth and freestyle his entire 2 verse collaboration with KRS-One: "Take it to God". Now several years later, Ecks has reemerged as a complete MC, ready to take the place KRS-One prophesized for him in history. On the cusp of his most significant release to date "Rebuilding" The Mixtape hosted by Lt. Dan, Ecks aims to prove KRS right.
The young MC has brought a few friends along with him to make sure
this effort is successful, the least of which is Jay-Z, whose voice he samples of his new single "Water 2 a Whale". The Project includes two discs, with over 30 tracks in total. Including appearances from Royce da 5'9, Bezel of Dipset, Wordsmith and Balance, as well as original mashups featuring Lupe Fiasco & Nas. The mixtape will be released July 4th, but fans can preview FOUR exclusive tracks from rebuilding now at: WWW.NEWREGIMERECORDS.COM
