Mixtape: Key Glock – Son Of A Gun
The Endlessly-Quotable Memphis Rapper Follows Up January’s Yellow Tape With Another Fully-Realized Effort
“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
“Rags-to-riches stories are a constant in rap, but Glock’s enthusiasm is infectious. Coupled with hard-hitting beats—from the slinky guitars and 808s of opener “1997” to the subwoofer-crushing drums of lead single “Mr. Glock”—Yellow Tape is enough reason to celebrate making it to the finish line on any given day. May the congregation say amen.” – Complex
“Key Glock is Memphis’s best new lyricist.” – The FADER
Hip-Hop’s foremost purveyor of blunt-force punchlines, Key Glock never stops grinding. Coming through with his second heavy-hitting project in four months, the Paper Route EMPIRE signee shares Son Of A Gun, his new mixtape. Stacking flex after flex with wit and panache, Son Of A Gun finds Key Glock in rare form, methodically laying out his case for rap supremacy over the tape’s 15 tracks. Son Of A Gun showcases Glock’s crackling chemistry with PRE producer Bandplay, who delivers sparsely absorbing soundscapes for the Memphis native to annihilate.
Continuing Glock’s tradition of shouldering every track without features, Son Of A Gun boasts highlights like the noirish, flow-shifting “Come Thru,” the percolating, Spanish guitar-laden “Money Talk,” and Glock’s revealing mission statement “Rich Blessed N Savage”: “B*tch, I ball, it’s necessary/I’m cool as Ben & Jerry/If you don’t like me, blame my parents/Sit down if you can’t stand me,” asserts Glock on the latter track. The follow-up to January’s successful Yellow Tape, Son Of A Gun is available to stream everywhere via Paper Route EMPIRE.
Featuring standout singles like the speaker-knocking “Look At They Face” (18 million combined streams on YouTube and Spotify), the suave “Mr. Glock,” and the sinister “I’m Just Sayin’“, Yellow Tape peaked at #14 on the Billboard 200 and earned more than NUMBER streams since its release. Yellow Tape marked Glock’s second Billboard Top 20 placement, after the #8 debut in 2019 for Dum & Dummer, the rapper’s collaborative project with his label boss Young Dolph. With recent interviews from Esquire, Fuse, and Noisey, and a nomination for XXL’s Freshman 10th Spot, Glock is well on his way to making 2020 his biggest year yet.
