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.
