30 Reasons Why Key Glock Needs No Assistance on ‘YT2 (Deluxe)’

Published

on

Since the November release of Yellow Tape 2, which debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 chart, #1 on the Independent Albums chart, and #2 on the Top Rap Albums chart, Key Glock has only gained momentum while carrying Paper Route Empire into the future. Today, Glock returns to expand the hit project, adding 10 new tracks and 10 more reasons why he shines without any features on Yellow Tape 2 (Deluxe), available now via Paper Route Empire.

Featuring the recent, Sledgren-produced singles, “Pain Killers” and “Play For Keeps,” the 10-track expansion bolsters the introspective candidness of YT2 without losing any of the bass-booming, wordplay-heavy Memphis flavor that Glock perfects. 

On tracks like “No Choice,” Glock reminisces on his roots and the turbulent past that motivates his hustle, rapping “I jumped up off the porch, had no choice but to get it/My momma was at home, my daddy was lying ‘bout coming to get me.” Yet, Glock’s effortlessly explosive braggadocio is felt full-force on cuts like “Gucci & Dolph,” as he boasts, “Yeah, yeah, yeah/Diamonds on me talking sound like Gucci Mane adlibs (brr).”

The success of Yellow Tape 2 proved beyond all doubt that Key Glock is a standalone star in the truest sense. With the 20-track project, Glock cracked his first solo entrance into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, racked up over 70 million streams on Spotify alone, and did it all without a major label or a single guest feature. In January, Glock paid tribute to his cousin, mentor, and friend, Young Dolph, with his potent tribute, “Proud,” which earned over 4 million views in its first three days, and received praise from The New York Times, among others. The track was featured on the recent compilation album, Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, where Glock appeared alongside his fellow PRE labelmates, and appears on Yellow Tape 2 (Deluxe).

With Yellow Tape 2 (Deluxe) out now and a headlining tour starting in April–ten dates of which are already sold out–stay tuned to see what new heights Key Glock will reach in 2022.

SossHouse Standout Jelly Announces ‘The Wolf of Peachtree 2,’ Links with Juicy J on New Single

Published

By

Jelly, the SOSSHOUSE stunner known as “Mr. Popular,” may have Jordan Belfort’s vibrant charisma and shrewd tenacity, but unlike that other “wolf,” he has the smooth elusiveness to stick around for a sequel. Returning to reprise his titular role, Jelly announces his next project, The Wolf of Peachtree 2, arriving May 27th. Entirely produced by long-time friend and mentor Pi’erre Bourne, who also contributes vocals to the project highlight “WYA,” The Wolf of Peachtree 2 refines Jelly’s cinematic style. Over Pi’erre’s genre-bending instrumentals and jaw-dropping transitions, Jelly delivers his most combative cadences yet on unrelenting project cuts like “Twin” and “Mumble Jumble.” Whereas Belfort’s wolf wakes up each morning with backaches and dry eyes, Peachtree’s wolf rises in a different fashion, as he kicks off “Pop It” rapping, “Woke up 10 o’clock, I’m feeling kinda pissed/The numbers just played, smoked a blunt, I dropped the fifth.”

Along with the project’s announcement, Jelly shares “Bubble Gum,” his new Juicy J-assisted single that puts the “peach” in “Peachtree.” A chirpy celebration of curvature coated in the influence of Three 6 Mafia, both in sound and subject matter, “Bubble Gum” sees the South Carolina native channel the immutable flows of Memphis’ underground with stunning efficacy. Never one to disappoint in the ponderance of posteriors, Juicy J delightfully enters the discussion on their common interest, rapping, “Damn, that a** bubbalicious/I had to smash two times, guess I’m double dipping.”

Jelly’s collaboration with Juicy J, who also lends his ear to the project as an engineer, helped to check an item off the rising rappers bucket list: “I linked up with Juicy J for the first time in December so that was cool meeting him,” says Jelly. “Me and Pi’erre love Juicy, Project Pat, and the whole Memphis wave they did. We pulled up, met Juicy — cool guy, real humble guy.” 

As the South Carolinian prepares to roll out his 12-track sequel to 2020’s The Wolf of Peachtree with Pi’erre Bourne behind the boards, stay tuned for The Wolf of Peachtree 2, arriving on May 27th via SOSSHOUSE
