Key Glock Raps About His Come Up in “Who Run It (Freestyle)”
Key Glock is swiftly increasing his buzz in the music game, and he's the latest rapper to tackle Three 6 Mafia's "Who Run It" instrumental for a new freestyle. After G Herbo re-popularized the 2000 record from the Southern group, tons of artists have been hopping on the wave, and the 20-year-old rising star doesn't hold back on his version.
While spitting some cold, boasting bars over the catchy beat, Glock takes us through his journey from growing up on welfare to hitting success with his rap career that's given him tons of new riches.
"Colder than a polar bear, came off of welfare/Now I'm out in Bel-Air, killin' shit, where the chair?" he rhymes. "Ran it up, didn't use the stairs, I'm on another level/I wake up with the birds, yeah, I gotta get a check/Never fall off, yeah, that's what mama said/I gave her a couple racks, yeah, and my mama said/Boy you better not put a bitch before your bread."
Back in March, the Memphis native told XXL that Three 6 Mafia has inspired him more than any other group of artists from his home city in the game.
"I grew up listening to Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne. Nobody from Memphis inspired me more than Three 6 Mafia. Them beats were so hard, and I was a lil' rascal. I'm jumpin', I'm knockin', I'm bangin' my head to that shit."
Last month, Glock also pitched himself to land a spot on the 2018 XXL Freshman cover, which will be unveiled this summer.
