“Jump Shots” is a song that articulates in depth the idea made famous by Biggie Smalls, “either your slingin’ crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot.” Over an infectious head-nodder from Buckwild, assisted by a flawless cuts from Statik Selektah, REKS describes the limited options available to ghetto youth and the parallels between b-ball and hip hop. A die-hard Boston Celtics fan, REKS states, “I actually grew up idolizing the Bad Boys Isiah Thomas on the ball court. His grittiness and fearlessness was admirable.”
“Jump Shots” comes just in time as The NBA Finals are now in full swing. REKS won’t root for any team other than his beloved Celtics these days, but he is enjoying the shootout between Steph Curry and Lebron James. “Jump Shots” is the fourth release from ‘The Greatest X’.
