Memphis-born rapper Key Glock delivers cold, stark, uncompromising verses about sex, guns, and money. Updating the woozy, narcotic style of Memphis greats that came before him like Three 6 Mafia, Key Glock found success with critics, fans, and the charts with projects like 2020’s Yellow Tape and two Dum and Dummer releases with Young Dolph. Following the 2020 mixtape Son of a Gun, he again paired with Dolph, hitting number eight on the Billboard 200 with 2021’s Dum and Dummer 2, before releasing his sequel mixtape Yellow Tape 2.
His debut mixtape, Glock Season, appeared on Paper Route Empire in 2017. The release included the singles “On My Soul” and “Racks Today” (featuring Jay Fizzle), as well as production by Sosa 808, Izze tha Producer, and DJ Squeeky. In early 2018, he issued Glock Bond, which debuted outside the Top 100 on the Billboard 200. Later that year, he returned with the mixtape Glockoma. In 2019, he teamed up with his friend Young Dolph on the joint album Dum and Dummer. The collaboration was streamed tens of millions of times and set the pace for Key Glock to return in January 2020 with the solo mixtape Yellow Tape. The album’s raw production and ruthless flows connected with audiences, and the project again cracked the Billboard charts. A mere five months later, he released his second mixtape of 2020, Son of a Gun. The collection again featured no other rappers than Key Glock and debuted at number 37 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2021, Dolph and Glock reunited for Dum and Dummer 2. Another strong collection of brag-heavy anthems, it hit number eight on the Billboard 200. Also that year, Glock released the sequel to his first mixtape, Yellow Tape 2, featuring the singles “Ambition for Cash,” “Da Truth,” and “Toolie.”
