Back in November, MC Tres dropped off his latest body of work Late Night Flights, which saw eight top quality cuts from the rising St. Louis talent. This past April, one of the EP’s standouts — the Young Badger-produced “Get Up” — received a remix upgrade with the help of fellow hometown hero and former “106 & Park” host Shorty Da Prince. Now rapping under the moniker Reggie Son, the radio and television presenter effortlessly matches his collaborators flow and subject matter with bars about hustling hard and getting goals accomplished:
“Quality over quantity, I lead by example, just follow three, wait, feelings ain’t facts, so I don’t give one fuck that you think of me, see i’m in it, bitch, like a dog fetus, my dogs wit’ me and they all eating, same team, no competin’, sharpened steel...”
Courtesy of Miss-n-Scene Productions, “Get Up (Remix)” also sees an accompanying clip that shows the artists with fellow athletes in the gym somewhere in the Gateway City, working out and striving towards greatness. The video continues with that same inspirational vibe on the basketball court.
Prior to Late Night Flights, MC Tres blessed the masses with 2020’s Unplugged No. 1: An Audiobiography, an 11-track offering that saw multiple assists from ASCAP award-winning artist-songwriter Lydia Caesar. Meanwhile, Reggie Son has liberated high-quality singles like “My Jill,” “The Glide,” “Soniversary (Slide),” and — most recently — the Mvchxne-produced “Nikki,” a soulful effort that sees him rapping about a certain someone:
“My foot on the gas, I’m floatin’ up 70 dirty, I’m bout hit da exit, it’s hot now, ‘member when I first caught you at Fairground, posted up wit’ your girls wit’ the top down, trip to yo’ village, yo’ hood full of killas, I pull up like shit ain’t too risky, funny I knew that I’d be here eventually...”
