Excelling by making real friends rather than rap friends, 22 year old rapper Key Nyata doesn't care about climbing the social ladders of Hip-Hop.
After being featured in XXL's The Break at 18 years old, former Raider Klan member and child prodigy Key Nyata has traveled a long road, seeing the the ups and downs of the rap game yet he's still persevering to this day.
Now Key Nyata says this will be his last project, aptly titled It's A Long Game. The final effort will feature guest verses from Denzel Curry, Slim Guerilla and worldly production from a Snubnose, PHX, Genshin, DJQJ, Othasyde, and Key himself.
"I wanted to take it back to the roots," Key Nyata explained. "Back to the era where I per say made all my fans, to the era where I was truly immersed in my music, like back when I was with the Raider Klan. I had to go back and get a couple of the homies from that time period; Denzel Curry, my boy Slim Guerilla and some production from several close homies."
Key Nyata was always surrounded by Hip-Hop culture growing up in Seattle. With both parents having had their own ties to the game, Key Nyata was destined to be a rapper and started writing at an early age after being exposed to the world of Hip-Hop from his parents.
Carrying out his family traditions Key Nyata mixes the classic West-Coast sounds of the 90's with bars from today for a funky juxtaposition the rap game is primed to embrace. But there's more to this story.
