The Sample in reggie’s “Ain’t Gon Stop Me,” produced by Kenny Beats & Monte Booker

LA-based, Houston-bred rapper reggie is making moves. His new release “Ain’t Gon Stop Me” is only his third single, but already produced by in-demand producers Monte Booker (Dreamville/Soulection affiliate) and Kenny Beats (ScHoolboy Q, Denzel Curry, Freddie Gibbs & many more). Who together flipped a 70s soul sample off Tracklib.

For the track, Kenny Beats and Monte Booker dug up and flipped “Reflections” by Albert Jones. The soothing soul gem from the Tuff City Records catalog seems to be an instant favorite for those digging into the 70s soul archives on Tracklib. For instance: Top Dawg’s Sounwave previously flipped it for “Know” by Mary J. Blige, and “Reflections” was included in a Mellow Grime collection by UK producer KwolleM. More known from Albert Jones, is his song “Mother Nature,” with horns sampled by Kanye West for Common’s “Be (Intro).”

"So through experimenting and not being scared to leave my comfort zone, that’s the only place I can create. I like to be as uncomfortable as possible."

—reggie (DJBooth Interview)

After this year’s feature in 21 Rising Artists to Watch in 2021 by Pigeons & Planes and the release of a new single produced by two independent heavyweights, it’s starting to become a promising year for reggie (just remember, all lowercase when you spell the man’s name). It’s been over half a year since the release of his debut single: the gospel and blues-infused “Southside Fade,” followed by “I Don’t Wanna Feel No More,” both accompanied by stunning feature-length-worthy visuals. This time is no different: “Ain’t Gon Stop Me” got a proper video treatment.

“My biggest lesson was time,” reggie told DJBooth in his very first (and to date, only) interview. “I been able to strictly work on music for a very long time, so through experimenting and not being scared to leave my comfort zone, that’s the only place I can create. I like to be as uncomfortable as possible. There’s a lot of things that have an impact on the way I sound, but I don’t really focus on them, it just happened. I done lived 1,000 different lives, and seen a lot of different things in Houston so fast.”

His new track “Ain’t Gon Stop” marks the next step for that journey. reggie takes things slow, but with a new track backed by Kenny Beats and Monte Booker, things are surely going to speed up big time for him.
