Keyz Had a Video Broadcast on Hundreds of College Campuses
Rap star Keyz has opened for the likes of Big Sean, E-40 and Fat Joe and has produced collaborations with Trump, Ciara, Freeway, Rookie Snow, Weebie, Big Poppa, DJBayBay, and many more. The hip hop artist spits lyrics that promote hard work, and aims to bridge the gap between Southern and West Coast styles in his music. In the past, Keyz was chosen for Best Rap Artist, Best Rap Video, & Best Duo in the 2011 Indie Music TV Channel Awards, was #1 on the ReverbNation charts for Shreveport, LA, and was featured on Snoop Lion’s Underground Heat.
“I’ve submitted to many opportunities through ReverbNation, and it felt truly awesome to be chosen for the Campus Nation Network opportunity. Knowing that my music was reviewed and chosen is motivation to keep making good music, and having the chance for millions of people to hear it is a blessing.”
Keyz says that he uses every experience he encounters to better his music. Be on the lookout for his new album, Lead By Example, coming soon.
“I will always submit for opportunities, because even when I get turned down it makes me step up my music game so I’ll be chosen the next time. Hard work never goes unrecognized. Thanks ReverbNation for showing indie artists major love and giving us great opportunities!”
