Listen to A-Reece’s New Single ‘In Hi$ Image [EXP 1]’

A-Reece drops a new single 'In Hi$ Image [EXP 1].'

After a several-month hiatus that felt like forever to A-Reece fans, the popular lyricist finally shares a new single. In the song, which is titled "In Hi$ Image [EXP 1]," Reece raps over a minimalist instrumental that's built around a vocal sample and a piano. A selection of percussion rattle around a heavy kick.


It seems Reece felt the need to remind his fans who he is and his peers that he's one of the nicest on the mic. The emcee brings his A-game throughout the song. The third verse stands out as A-Reece uses a flow reminiscent to the song "1000 Degreez" from his 2014 EP Browniez back when he was still a rappity rap rapper. He raps in the third verse of "In Hi$ Image[EXP 1]":

"Shit a little different when that money chasing after you/ Shit a little different when that love is unconditional/ I'm who the children listen to/ My life is like a parable/ Every chapter pivotal/ Living proof of a miracle"

Before the release of "In Hi$ Image[EXP 1]," A-Reece had not released music since the project Reece Effect which was released in April of 2019. Reece was quiet for the rest of the year. He hadn't tweeted in a whole eight months until yesterday when he sent out a cryptic tweet that many think is the name of an upcoming project.

It looks like 2020 won't be as disappointing for Reece fans.
