Video: Rey Resurreccion, “High With Me”
Rey Res Shares West Coast Chill In Visual For New Stoner Anthem, Premiere via SFGate’s Marijuana Blog, Smell the Truth
Pass the joint—pass good vibes. Rey Resurreccion, who was just featured on the cover of his hometown newspaper, The San Jose Metro, shares his West Coast state-of-mind in his video “High With Me,” a track from his recently released album, Heart of the City. To most, San Jose is known as a breeding ground for successful tech start-ups, but with Heart of the City, Rey Res peels back his hometown’s layers of class, race, and complexities to reveal a lesser-known side. As the first breakout rapper from a city that lives in the shadows of its rapper-heavy Bay Area neighbors, San Francisco and Oakland, Rey Res takes his job seriously but knows when to relax and unwind in true Cali fashion. “High With Me,” premiered by SFGate’s marijuana blog, Smell the Truth, shows Rey and his squad cruising through San Jo in their signature vintage whips, passing around that loud.
The beat, produced by Dublin Beats, bumps the Yay Area vibe that Rey Res takes pride in. “Cali is all about being laid back and having a good time, but still being a G about it,” he states. “I want people to hear this song and immediately think, “This is that West Coast shit!” Gearing up to his forthcoming album, Rey released The Mixtape Before the Album, a collection of self-reflective narratives featuring artists such as Equipto, Bored Stiff, J. Lately, Bambu, Prometheus Brown (Blue Scholars), and A-1.
Rey Resurreccion is no stranger to the game, having opened up for legendary artists including Souls of Mischief, Bone Thugs N Harmony, and Hieroglyphics. Kicking off the year landing the cover of the San Jose Metro, Rey is now one of the Bay Area’s most recognized Hip-Hop names. With his new album, Heart of the City, Rey has given fans a lot to look forward to. “It’s been a long time coming and I still feel like I’m learning and growing, but at this point, I feel like I have enough experience to start making my way on the up and up.”
