Birmingham’s iconic Remtrex delivers his second set of ‘Bars From The Pen’ in new project
Remtrex has long been established as one of the West Midlands’ most prodigious talents, cementing himself as a local legend by dropping seminal freestyles on channels such as Flush and JDZ Media in the early 2010s. However, legal troubles and long stretches in jail have somewhat impeded Remtrex’s musical career from progressing to where it maybe could have. Even whilst in jail, the fans clearly were still crying out for new music from Remtrex and a freestyle video filmed from in jail hit over 3 million views on YouTube. In 2018, Remtrex was finally freed after a long bird and immediately showed the fans what they’d been missing with several high-profile freestyles and the release of his debut album, the original ‘Bars From The Pen’. After being rejailed, Remtrex has now dropped the follow-up to that project, showing the fans that he’s still got it.
‘Bars From The Pen 2’ is a perfect window into Remtrex’s mercurial talent. The project is led by two hugely accomplished singles, respectively featuring two of the biggest names in the scene AJ Tracey and fellow Birmingham native Jaykae, but at the same time showcases Remtrex’s rugged, hard-hitting personality and bars that the fans will have been missing. The project also features Belly Squad’s Ty, another Birmingham heavyweight in Lady Leshurr and Young Smokes.
Even though Remtrex’s career hasn’t perhaps gone quite the way it could have, in this project he continues to drop some of the hardest music of anyone in the UK and the more we get from him, the better.
