Innovative and inspirational, Reyes has been performing nationally and internationally for more then 12 years. Fresh off his first international project with Spanish rapper No Global, he prepares for the release of his latest mixtape titled My Word Is My Weapon. The mixtape is a fusion of inspirational soul, raw lyrical hip-hop, fresh beats and poetic style. Reyes flips commercial and underground beats and adds his own unique style and radical message.
Know nationally as a poet, My Word Is My Weapon is a chance for this Chicago lyricist to flex his skill as a emcee. No guest appearances or collaborations, just his soul on the beat and blood on the page.
My Word Is My Weapon explores freedom, justice and equality in an unconventional way. As a creator of “conscious” or “radical” art, Reyes attempts to present political struggle with fun and entertaining songs. He avoids what he calls “pamphlet hip-hop.” He hopes the project is a weapon against oppression while giving people something fun to listen to.
“We are multi dimensional people and our struggles have multi dimensions. I hope my words convey a message of hope, possibilities and inspiration.”
