Brick Records is proud to present the REKS & Hazardis Soundz collaborative album Eyes Watching God. The concept album has the duo showcasing a contrast between “good and evil” beginning with a “God Side” and finishing with a “Devil Side.” The CD artwork features a dual-image album cover showing both the ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ sides, depending on what angle you view it from. The Massachusetts lyricist linked up with the Queens native in South Florida to complete the album during the past year, and they enlisted N.O.R.E, Saigon, Fredro Starr, Termanology, Ruste Juxx, Dutch Rebelle and others to add to their cause. The result is a highly conscious and fiercely political album.

In part one of our in-depth our interview with Young Guru, he talks with Nick Huff Baril about making the transition from being Jay Z engineer to teaching at USC. Along with talking about Hip Hop in academia, Guru addresses “Curators” in Hip Hop who don’t know the roots of the culture and haven’t even listened to KRS-One’s Criminal Minded album or a De La Soul album. Guru states that it’s important for people who know and care about the culture to teach it and preserve it. Guru states that Hip Hop is lucky that its forefathers are still around and that we should make sure to learn from them while they are still alive. Guru goes on to say that Hip Hop is not a color based thing and that there were early graffiti artists who were white and b-boys that were Latin that should not be left out of the Hip Hop history. He also points out that there is no denying that artists like The Bestie Boys, MC Search and more recently Macklemore are Hip Hop. Although Guru points out that some of Macklemore’s fan-base might not be up on the culture. Guru elaborates that Hip Hop is one of the few places that has realized Dr Martin Luther King’s dream where its not about the color of your skin but your skills. Part 1 of our interview ends with Guru distinguishing the difference between a beat maker and a producer. Stay tuned next week for part 2 of our conversation with Young Guru.
