Call me crazy, but this might be in my top 10 projects in 2018. Key! has always been a more fun rapper than most, but with the ability to craft songs that mean something. He doubles down on both here with the help of Kenny Beats who provides him with some crazy production.
Key! knows what he’s doing here. The tape is 15 songs, but only runs 35 minutes in length. He’s short, sweet and to the point on each song but with most of them running around the 2 and a half minute mark. No features either, just Key! and Kenny. “Demolition 1 +2” is one of my favorite songs of the year, and “It Gets Better” is a uplifting track if I’ve heard one recently.
We appreciate Key! for this album, and you should too.
