AUDIO: Core REX – “Gemini+”
Chicago-based hip hop artist Core REX has his highly-anticipated new album out. Corresponding with the striking artwork, REX shares an elegant exhibition of artful rap cuts that convert broken emotions into cries for love. He expresses in the intro that creative expression is all we have to cope with the internal and external evils of consciousness, and he elaborates on these sentiments using alternative production techniques that incorporate moody guitars and melancholy vocal effects. His colleagues Ishaan and Ibra make appearances on “Ultra” and “Tangent,” respectively. We can imagine Core REX came face-to-face with immense vulnerability on this record, confronting the obstacles that come with finding the exact way you want to say something. We hope to bring him up to Milwaukee for shows in the future.
