Key Glock – “712AM” (Freestyle)

With an unshakeable flow and an exquisite taste in instrumentals, Key Glock can take any beat and make it his own. Trying his hand at a beat made famous by Future, Key Glock shares “a new freestyle. Originally produced by Wheezy & TM88, the beat for Future’s “712PM” fits squarely in Key Glock’s wheelhouse, mixing mob movie strings with heavy percussion, giving Glock’s off-the-dome rhymes a cinematic scope. Glock smacks Wheezy’s fastball out of the park, putting his own spin on Future’s flow and stacking flexes like only he can: “I got the motherf*ckin new Hellcat, I ain’t drove it since it came out/Couple of bad b*tches, they tens, still can’t come up in my house.” The “712AM” freestyle arrives with a new video, in which Glock pours up in the back of his trademark yellow Benz before heading to the studio to mob with his Paper Route Empire brethren.

“712AM” continues a banner year for Key Glock, marked by sold-out dates, new music, and much more. “712AM” quickly follows the video for “No Choice,” a highlight from Glock’s recent Yellow Tape 2 (Deluxe). The new deluxe version “Walkin” (Remix), doing his thing over soulful production.

The success of Yellow Tape 2 and its accompanying tour 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).
