“If somebody wants to know what current day Memphis rap sounds like, show them Key Glock. The 21-year-old has uncontrollable energy, can tell a funny story, and says it all over beats that pay homage to the city’s history while still incorporating a modern bounce.”Pitchfork

“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 

A recognized figure in Memphis and a rising star on the national scene, 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 manager Daddyo to join Paper Route EMPIRE. Since releasing his first mixtape, Glock Season, in 2017, Key Glock started a rapid rise through the Southern rap game, earning over 1.7 million YouTube views on his first single On My Soul.” In 2018, Glock took his success to a new level with his two mixtapes Glock Bond and Glockoma, forming a symbiotic relationship with Memphis superproducer Tay Keith, who produced his hits Russian Cream” (17 million Spotify streams) and Yea!!,” and raising his monthly listeners on Spotify to more than 1 million. Stay tuned for even more heat from Key Glock in the near future.
