Key Glock Announces Glock Bond Mixtape, Releasing February 2nd
The Memphis Mainstay/Young Dolph-signee Releases Luxurious “Russian Cream” Single From the Forthcoming Project
Marrying authentic storytelling with charm and wit, Key Glock is the Paper Route Empire rapper slated to blow. Hailed by The FADER as an “artist you need to know about in 2018,” the Memphis heavy-hitter is ready to take the year by storm with his Glock Bond mixtape, releasing February 2nd. Key Glock is delivering no-bullshit street music to the masses, packing Glock Bond with 15 head-nodding, authentic tracks.
Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, the 20-year-old broke through to local radio with confessional hit “On My Soul,” which has over 1 million YouTube views and 551,000 plays on Spotify while catching the attention of Young Dolph, who signed Glock to Paper Route Empire. Last year, hot on the heels of his surprise success, Key Glock dropped Glock Season, which was praised by Noisey as one of the Best Overlooked Albums of 2017. Karen Civil also recognized the rapper’s undeniable talent, saying, “[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.”
To accompany the announcement of Glock Bond, Key Glock shares “Russian Cream,” an ode to Glock’s lavish lifestyle and favorite Backwoods cigar flavor. As one of the freshest rappers you can roll with, Key Glock doesn’t hold back braggadocious lines over hypnotic production from Tay Keith. Fans can stay tuned for Glock Bond, releasing February 2nd.

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.
