We at Audible Treats stand in solidarity with the protesters across the country who seek justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. As a company, we are developing a concrete plan of action to combat the deleterious effects of systemic racism and police brutality. Currently, our team members are donating to just causes, marching in the streets, speaking out in public and private, and further educating ourselves about America’s racist past and present so that we are better equipped to call out injustice when we recognize it.

We take our role seriously as a conduit for amplifying voices and stories that tend to be ignored by the mainstream media. As for our day-to-day work of publicizing our artists and their stories, we’re working closely with them to find a balance between their need for artistic expression and their solidarity with the protest movement.

There is strength in numbers. Here is a resource that lists ways you can take action: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/

No justice, no peace. Black Lives Matter.

Video: Key Glock – “Son Of A Gun”

“Son Of A Gun” is the Title Track From Glock’s Billboard Top 40-Debuting New Mixtape

Critical Praise:

“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‚Äôs history while still incorporating a modern bounce.”¬†–¬†Pitchfork

“Rags-to-riches stories are a constant in rap, but Glock‚Äôs enthusiasm is infectious. Coupled with hard-hitting beats‚ÄĒfrom the slinky guitars and 808s of opener ‚Äú1997‚ÄĚ to the subwoofer-crushing drums of lead single ‚ÄúMr. Glock‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒYellow 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

The Video:

With his nimble flow and his punchlines that crash with thudding force,¬†Key Glock¬†was born to rap. Chronicling his history of flexing, Glock shares¬†Son Of A Gun,¬†his new video. Over¬†Bandplay‘s flurry of classical violins and thumping 808s, Glock lays down his case for rap supremacy over an uninterrupted verse: “I’ve been gettin’ paper, paper (Racks)/Made a whole M without a motherf*ckin’ major label, yeah (Racks)/They like, ‘Glock, you major’/I just set a new set of fours on a new Mercedes, uh (Yeah).” In the video, directed by¬†Michael Artis, Glock rocks the mic in a spare room, with only the company of two bad violinists, as he flexes atop rose petals and in front of his own childhood photos. “Son Of A Gun” is the first video from¬†Son Of A Gun, his new mixtape, which debuted at #37 on the Billboard 200.

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. 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¬†reached #14 on the Billboard 200 and earned more than 40¬†streams since its release on Spotify alone.¬†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. Watch “Son Of A Gun”:
