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.
Previously mentored by Vince Staples, Raider Klan ringleader SpaceGhostPurr p and Seattle mainstay Nacho Piccasso, Key Nyata has spent roughly ten years in the rap game perfecting his craft and getting advice from mentors.
“This is my final project going as Key Nyata. I don’t want to say too much about the future just yet, but if you know me, you know what’s going on,” Key Nyata explained. “To the world I will cease to exist if not for just a little bit of time. Anyone that listens to my music will know what I’m doing right now.”
