88-Keys is by no means a “new artist,” he’s been producing music for artists since the days of Mos Def’s Black On Both Sides (He probably has work before this, but this is the earliest I can remember without using google). And if you have the booklet for Watch The Throne, you can see which song 88 has a production credit for. So no, he’s not new, but the artists featured on his Locksmith Music Mixtape are fairly new. But as you’ve seen in pasts posts, the “newness” of an artist doesn’t diminish the quality of their music; and the same applies to the artists on this mixtape. You can hear the immense talent of Nemo Achida, Mann95, Little Vic, Robert Akins III, & Tre DeJean on this project. I look forward to whatever Locksmith Music will put out in the future. But I’m done rapping, link after the “continue reading” joint……..
