Meet Key Nyata In "Thx Gvrdxx"

Posted by on Mon, Apr 15, 2013 at 10:12 AM

Key Nyata (KEE NYE-OUGHTA) n.
1. Seattle-based rapper and producer.
2. Member of the American rap collective Raider Klan (often stylized as RVIDXR KLVN) AKA Blackland Raider Klan or Raider Klan Mafia, which was founded by enigmatic Miami rapper SpaceGhostPurrp.
3. First came to prominence for his weed-heavy "Get High (Wanna Smoke)", where his Mariners apparel instantly sparked interest from Seattle-area rap writers. Key is beloved by an underground nation of sleepy eyed, possibly "urban" youths. His Shadowed Diamond release is coming soon, once he finishes smoking a thousand million blunts.

Here's his latest video, for "Thx Gvrdxxn", a track which features his signature stop/start, speed up/speed down production quirks:

Funny how there is no mention of KeyNyata performing at Coachella this past week end & he is performing there next weekend too. Coachella is pretty major for any Artist/Performer both mainstream & underground, let alone a 17yr old Kid from Seattle scheduled to graduate from GHS.... somebody is missing out on a great story opporotunity... SMH!

@ 3 and 4:

Sorry, I wrote this last week before I heard thru the grapevine that he was @ Coachella. It just got posted. Kindly save your SMH's for the writers who are ignoring Key in this town.
