Spec Kay, out of Roselle, is currently on the rise and making a name for himself in the Tri-State Hip-Hop scene. Taking his experiences, failures and successes into account, he calls out the dark realities of the world around us while also remaining positive and reflecting on the light at the end of the tunnel.
Growing up, he never thought Hip-Hop would become such a huge part of his life. After entering college, he came to find that music was his best teacher. It challenged him and gave him an outlet to convey life’s lessons. As his myriad of thoughts and observations transformed into lyrics, and his education with audio production turned into a talent for producing beats, he grew into the musician and artist he is today.
Although Spec always carries out his creative process with modesty, that hasn’t kept him from going unnoticed. In 2016, following the release of his sophomore album, XXV, he received a spotlight from Scottie Beam and Elliott Wilson on her Scottie’s Feedback review segment, receiving praise for his “Strange Dreams” record.
To start off the new year, Spec Kay returns strong with a brand new album titled XXVII: Nowhere. With vivid depictions of the world around him, illustrative lyrics and fiery instrumentals, the New Jersey native once again shows what sets him apart from other artists in the industry.
