Critical Praise

“Keak Da Sneak has become, for many, the hip-hop voice of the Bay Area. It’s a gravel-toned, jagged-edged, smoked-too-much-growing-up-in-Oaktown growl that cuts through a track like a diamond slicing glass.”The Mercury News

The Song:

A major forefather of the hyphy movement, Oakland’s Keak Da Sneak‘s distinctive rasp is one of the defining sounds of Bay Area hip-hop. Joining forces with Rayven Justice for an airy, windows-down lover’s anthem, Keak shows off his sensitive side on For You.” Produced by renowned Oakland duo The Mekanix, “For You” is the perfect track for this unseasonably warm Fall, with breezy synths and a soaring Rayven Justice hook, as Keak declares his allegiance to the woman in his life. Premiered by The Boombox, “For You” is the latest single from Withdrawl, Keak’s upcoming album, following the Mozzy-featuring, FADER-premiered “Him Not Them” and “Ima Keep It Goin,” blessed with an animated verse from E-40. Featuring additional appearances from J. Stalin, Kool John, and others, Withdrawl hits stores on November 3rdvia Allnfallndoe​ / Zoo Entertainment / EMPIRE.

A veteran with nearly two decades of experience in the rap game, Keak Da Sneak is one of the most well-known and influential rappers in Northern California, studying under the wing of the late legend Mac Dre. In 2005, Keak Da Sneak helped kickstart a nationwide hyphy craze with “Super Hyphy,” which reached the Billboard Top 40 Rhythmic airplay chart and Complex ranked as the seventh best Bay Area rap song of all-time. Outside of the Bay, Keak is probably best known for his scene-stealing guest appearance on E-40’s national smash hit “Tell Me When To Go.” This past August, Keak Da Sneak was the victim of a shooting, suffering 8 gunshot wounds to the torso. Though he spent some time in critical condition in the hospital and endured three life-saving surgeries, Keak is in the process of making a full recovery. The recent shooting, his second in 2017, strengthened Keak’s resolve to put his personal demons behind him and resume making music. Releasing on November 3rdWithdrawl marks a new chapter in the life of Keak Da Sneak.

The Background:

Keak da Sneak launched his career as one-third of 3X Krazy, a semi-successful mid- to late-’90s hardcore rap trio from Oakland, and soon after embarked on a solo career in 1999. He signed to Moe Doe Records, which released his first two albums, High Tech (1999) and Hi-Tek (2001), as well as a collaborative effort with former 3X Krazy colleague Agerman, Dual Committee (2000). Following this stint with Moe Doe, Keak moved on and continued to develop his career, beginning with the Retaliation album for the Sacramento-based hardcore rap label Black Market Records.
