Banging out energetic and innovative sounds since 2009, with their first placement on 50 Cent ‘Before I Self Destruct’ album, this artistic duo has weathered the distance quite well with a Grammy nod and over 150 placements on artists like: Faith Evans, T.I., Nipsey Hussle, The Game, B.O.B, Casey Veggies, Dom Kennedy, Lupe Fiasco, 8Ball and others.
Over the last few months, Mike & Keys have been on a constant grind with various artists for their summer and fall releases. “On lockdown and creating music memories is our mission, we’ve worked non-stop on four artist albums and EP’s over the last three months and are ready for more”.
Nipsey Hussle (Atlantic) was one of the four who invited the work of these two creative producers. Nipsey is no stranger to this duo, with previous mixtapes completed and now his latest album “Victory Lap”. “We just went underground to work and we just completed our greatest conquest ever! ‘Victory Lap’ words can’t explain!!” commented Mike & Keys. On December 1st Nipsey released the first single “Rap Niggas” (prod by Mike & Keys) from the highly anticipated album.
The digital sound duo also worked with artist BJ The Chicago Kid (Motown). “This was truly transformational as we worked with BJ from a being a great writing talent to an artist”. Listen to BJ’s debut with a musical touch from Mike & Keys on their collaboration with BJ’s ‘In My Mind’ album which led the duo to a ‘song deal’ with Motown and in 2017 a Grammy nomination. BJ remained with his producing duo and presently work on a current album.
Mike & Keys also recently worked with Jay305 (Interscope) producing 3 singles on his anticipated debut album. RCA’s new sensation Buddy who was featured on BJ The Chicago Kid’s first single ‘Church’ is now out with a his first single, ‘Shine’, musically crafted by Mike & Keys, along with two other singles, ‘That Much’ and ‘Type of Shit’ featuring Wiz Khalifa.
Powered with their managing partner Big Reese Johnson 2018 is shaping up to be an amazing year for this team.
