The seven-track mixtape, which is a part of the ongoing series of projects he releases ahead of his Reece Effect live performance series, features artists including amapiano sensation DJ Maphorisa, former label-mate turned foe Emtee, his brother, and fellow signee to Revenge Club Records Jay Jody.
Rapper Quentin Miller, who is from Atlanta, is also featured on the album. When rapper Meek Mill first admitted that Miller was Drake’s “ghost writer,” Miller became well-known as a result of the ensuing public outcry. In hip hop, ghost writing is strongly discouraged.
The mixtape serves as a prelude to “Paradise 2,” his hotly awaited sophomore album. It is referred to as the “album before the album” by A-Reece. Additionally, he states that the record was going to include all of the songs from the prophecy.
“The process felt synonymous to painting in front of a live audience with a time limit. Exhilarating and intense at the same time. I just think this approach takes me out of my comfort zone which is something I need as I transition into wrapping up P2,” he says.
The 25-year-old also discusses the process of working with Emtee again on the mixtape’s standout song, “Bigger Than Me.”
