11.23.2018

Critical Praise:

“Dolph’s most prominent PRE signee [Key Glock] shows why he’s next up out of Memphis with tons of fun punchlines, cutting insults and a versatile delivery style that is in its own way as forceful as his label boss” – Noisey 

“Key Glock is Memphis’s best new lyricist.” – The FADER

“Key Glock raps with an authoritative wisdom well beyond his age” – The FADER

“[Key Glock] will inevitably be on your radar in the months to come… he has a way with words that stick and resonate with his steadily growing fanbase.” – Karen Civil 

“… unparalleled lyrical style and fierce approach” – ELEVATOR 

The Mixtape:

He stacks up countless quotable lines and attacks trap-style instrumentals with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer–the streets just can’t stop bumping Key Glock. Returning for his second full-length mixtape of 2018, Key Glock shares Glockoma (Paper Route EMPIRE). The new mixtape follows the release of “Yea!!,” a monstrous banger produced by Drake‘s favorite new producer Tay Keith, which released last Friday and already has over 200k plays on Spotify alone.

Running roughshod over trunk-rattling instrumentals from Tay KeithBandplay, Buddah Bless, The Honorable C-Note, and others, Glock ratchets up his energy level, enthusiastically shouting blunt force punchlines about his extravagant wealth and street bonafides. Ranging from the laid-back cocktail lounge-inflections of “Gang Shit No Lame Shit,” to the minimalist, droning bass of “Walking Ticket,” Glockoma refines and expands Glock’s sonic palette, providing a canvas for Glock to paint on with quotable stunts like “My bankroll enormous, just like Norbit,” or “I need a house so big the den got a den,” (both lyrics from mixtape highlight “Talk My Shit”). The follow-up to February’s swaggering Glock Bond, which has over 39.7 million combined streams on Spotify, Glockoma transforms Black Friday into Glock Friday, as the Paper Route EMPIRE rising star puts his stamp on the holiday season.

The Background: 

A recognized figure in Memphis, Key Glock grew up idolizing the music of Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne. Glock created the unofficial crew Whole Lotta Errthang with his two best friends in high school, capturing the spirit of a popular Memphis saying. “Everybody knew we had a whole bunch of things going on,” remarked Glock. “we rolled with that, but we were living too fast.” Tragically, one of the members of his crew was gunned down at the age of 16. “Me and Ken [the other surviving member] ain’t even 21 yet, but we’ve seen and done so much. But you know: God does everything for a reason.” As Glock turned to music and began to develop his craft, his cousin-by-marriage Young Dolph began to take off. After facing an aggravated robbery charge and 90-day sentence in 2015, Key Glock was approached by Dolph and his business manager Daddyo to join Paper Route Empire. With PRE’s support behind him, Glock’s first single “On My Soul” has garnered 320,000 plays on WorldStarHipHop’s Youtube channel, and 235,000 plays on Soundcloud. With the release of Glock Season, Key Glock continues to smash through the southern rap scene. Stay tuned for more heat from Key Glock.
