The Atlanta rapper drops off a series of quick hits in his new EP.
Mama’s Man contains solid production from Nvbeel, CHASETHEMONEY, Spiffy Global, and even KEY! himself.
KEY! first made waves with his early projects, 2012’s Mother’s Are the Blame and 2013’s Fathers Are the Curse. He took a 5-year hiatus from full-length projects after coming on the scene, and returned with the triumphant 777, a collaboration with hit-maker Kenny Beats. The two also released a deluxe version of the album, which included features from Rico Nasty, Skepta, Jay Critch, and 6LACK.
After the collab, KEY! dropped the feature-less So Emotional. Before Alpha Jerk, the rapper released the romance-focused I Love You Say It Back, a 10-song tape with a feature from Bobby Raps and production from Kenny and TrapMoneyBenny.
Even with this consistent run of impressive projects, KEY! seems to remain a semi-hidden figure in the Atlanta scene.
