A blunt-force spitter with an immaculate ear for production, Key Glock has mastered the art of flexing. Returning to the stark aesthetic of one of his most successful projects, Key Glock announces Yellow Tape 2, coming soon. The upcoming project is the follow-up to 2020’s Yellow Tape, which peaked at #16 on the Billboard 200 and featured fan favorite songs like “Dough,” ‘Word on the Streets,” and “Look At They Face.“ With production from an A-List of sound architects including Tennessee legends Tay Keith (Memphis), Juicy J (Memphis), and Bandplay (Nashville), plus heavy-hitters from across the rap spectrum like Sosa 808, Budda Bless, and more, the upcoming tape finds the 24-year-old artist refining his style, unleashing tighter flows, delivering cleverer punchlines, and giving even fewer f*cks. Like always, the upcoming project finds Key Glock shouldering the full track load without any features. Expect Yellow Tape 2 to arrive later this fall via Paper Route EMPIRE.
Along with the announcement of the project, Key Glock shares “Ambition For Cash,” his new single. Produced by Tay Keith, who delivers a off-the-wall, flute-laden instrumental fit for a spaghetti western set on Beale Street, “Ambition For Cash” is the first glimpse of the upcoming Yellow Tape 2. Locking into the track’s thudding 808s, Glock speaks on a knack for hustling that has motivated him since he was “13-years-old with a shoebox stash,” spinning effortless flexes that help explain why he’s one of the hottest rappers in the game today: “I’m sippin color purple syrup, ballin hard just like The Beard/Yeah, and Larry Bird, I’m shootin sh*t I know you heard.”
The upcoming Yellow Tape 2 continues a busy year for Glock, as he’s spent time collaborating with his Paper Route EMPIRE associates. Earlier this year, he connected with his label boss and frequent sparring partner Young Dolph for Dum And Dummer 2, their second full-length collaborative album. Debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200, Dum & Dummer 2 generated nearly 36k sales equivalent units across platforms and scored the fifth-biggest streaming debut on Spotify during its first week of release. Earlier this month, the album received a glowing review from Pitchfork, who awarded the album a 7.5 score and cemented Young Dolph & Key Glock as a “once-in-a-generation” rap duo, akin to 8Ball & MJG or Method Man & Redman, and “one of the most in-sync alliances in the genre today.” Dum & Dummer 2 is the duo’s second Top 10 album, following the original Dum and Dummer, which also debuted at #8 in 2019. Glock also made multiple appearances on PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATi, the first-ever label compilation tape by Paper Route EMPIRE. Along with collaborating with fellow PRE signees like Snupe Bandz on “Blu Boyz” and “Bandaid” and Paper Route Woo on “Big Ol Racks,” Glock connected with Gucci Mane for project highlight “I Do This.“
