Mixtape: Key Glock – Glock Bond
The Paper Route Empire Signee Shares a New Batch of Bangers As He Continues His Rise
Taking over the streets of Memphis as he builds a national reputation, Key Glock demands attention with his slick-talking sledgehammer flow. Capitalizing on his rising momentum, Key Glock shares Glock Bond, a brand new batch of bangers. A 15-track dose of no-bullshit street music with no features, Key Glock shoulders the load with an uncommon toughness and a palpable swagger. Featuring production from Tay Keith, Sosa 808, Teddy Walton, Ramy On The Beat, and DJ Squeeky, Glock Bond is a worthy follow-up to 2017’s Glock Season, which has over 6 million combined streams on Spotify. Released by Young Dolph‘s Paper Route Empire and distributed by EMPIRE, Glock Bond establishes Key Glock as one of the South’s rising stars, capable of turning a head-nodding street story into a surprise hit through sheer force of charisma.
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 874,000 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.” Last week, Key Glock shared “Russian Cream,” the lead single from Glock Bond that name-checks his favorite flavor of Backwoods cigar.

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.
