CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY SUNDAY HIP-HOP: REACH DROPS THE FIX!!!
Take a listen to this EXCEPTIONAL HIP-HOP COLLABO featuring Kansas City artist REACH.
What we like about this track . . .
- Certainly this track is an anthem for the Spring. A preview for great things and it has sort of a marching theme that seems to be leading up to even greater things.
- Credit to Reach for getting comfortable fact with how much the New York sound has always influenced his style. KC hip-hop has always been stuck in the "middle-of-the-map" musically and some have been torn between competing styles from East Coast to West with Southern influence further complicating the mix . . . In this track, Reach clearly favors his East Coast musical roots.
- This track has a hard hitting . . . Make for cranking up loud on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
Check the presser, we'll be annoying neighbors all day with this Kansas City made music.

The track debuts on the 2dopeboyz blog the weekend of May 16th 2013 production album (B.Q.E). That project featured Lil' Fame, Ill Bill, Sean Price, Roc Marciano, A.G., Steele, FT, Torae, Masta Ace, Nature, Cormega, Craig G, Big Noyd, Havoc, Psycho Les, Rah Digga, and more. . Skizz is credited with production on the song. The track follows his Reach has been hard at work on two separate album releases. Both projects are of the extended play variety and feature full production work from Big Apple producers.
The first, Perfect Strangers, is a collaborative offering from both Reach and Manhattan-producer Brady J. (scheduled for a Q2 release). The second is still untitled, but features production from legendary Canadian-producer (now living in New York) Marco Polo. The project is tentatively scheduled to be released in the fall.
The two pair up admirably on “Fix” to re-interpet the iconic boom bap that characterized Hip Hop of the 90’s. The blaring horns in the foreground and lilting strings in the background give the song an epic feel. Reach’s conversational flow fits comfortably in
