“For me i always wanted to be involved in music, but none of my experiments with music, as in trying to write songs, freestyling to myself, table beat cypher, at the lunch table, trumpet in elementary school….. None of that mattered it all began when I actually made a beat that wasn’t terrible sounding…It kinda boosted my ego/confidence & I continued to pursue it on a more passionate level. I was always experimenting with music “on the low”.

“When I had CD players, I’d figured out a way to pull the headphone jack out partially so you’d Mostly hear the beat & id freestyle over it or just vibe out, I’d write songs. For some reason I was embarrassed when I was younger, kinda fearful of judgment. But that faded with majority. From there I just been working on my craft & trying to get good music out there”
What song of yours is the one you like the most?
“My favorite song is actually a song I just released called “Vancouver Bae Club”.


Got these girls coming like centripetal

Got their tongues

Flipping like reciprocals

Flow so cold

It bring a hoe a chill

Pussy poppin for me

Cuz she know it’s real


That Ass too fat

My hand about to slip


Knew she was a go

The way she licked her lips


Head was on fire


Swear that bitch name was cinnamon


See the way we fuck

I swear it belong in cinema


Shawty roll my weed

We never fucking with Reggie mane

Took a shot for me

Now pussy breaking

The Levi mane


Bet that shit be Atlantic

Throw it back if it’s aerial

POV the best

The views better from aerial


These theories come

With consequences

These trophies come


Member back in the days

When these hoes was just

Some wishes


Now we put on a show

And all these Vixens

Granting wishes


Guess they thought they was genies

Bet that frame be a bottle

Twisted thoughts probably

Loosely based upon of all these fucking models

How do you write your music?
“Most of the time I freestyle and go off that idea, if like it enough then I start writing based on what I was freestyling. I sometimes just write for the sake of writing but that content rarely gets used”.
What influences do you have?
“I listen to a lot of different music so I have a LOT of influences. Honesty could probably fill a book but to name a few: Rick James, Kanye west, bootsy Collins,daft punk, future, roger troutman, prince., kid cudi, q-tip…. It’s a lot lol”.
What´s the best experience you have had with your project?
“Definitely having the HotNewHipHop HeatSeekers list. I’m heavy follower of the blog, & have been for years, so to see my music on there now that I’m doing music, just meant a lot. It felt like it was a step in the right direction”.
What plans do you have this year?
“I definitely plan to a beat tape before the end of the year. I have a lot of sitting music so I want to start moving some of it & getting it out there. Other than that I Plan to keep working & creating just getting better. Definitely would like to see my local audience & general audience grow so definitely more on that”.
Mention something you don´t like about your project.
“I would definitely say it’s not the best quality. I do my own mixing, which I’m just starting to grasp, but I’m getting better. Other than that, I love the project for those who know me & my music you can definitely see a growth And you can see it even more with the newer music. Oh! & I want to get to the point where I’m producing all of my music so I don’t really like that it’s not produced solely by myself”.
Mention the biggest sacrifice you did for your project.
“I think it was releasing the project in general was my biggest sacrifice. Since I don’t have a large team with engineers & I mix guy the quality isn’t ideal but I enjoy I still enjoy the project & have the regrets about it. I focus on getting where I need to be instead of where I think I should be or what should have been. Though I feel quality isn’t always peaking for me it is really critical to me”.
What band, music project or solist from your city do you like? Why?
“I’m a fan of B.Newb, it’s a band called The Breedz , Wendel Patrick, & Tate Kobang they all have a sound of their own & that’s rare in Baltimore, where the main music type is trap style hip hop”.
If your project was a word, what would it be?
“Experience, it would be the start of something great to come. ”
What´s your full name? Where were you when you answered the interview?
“Keith Rantin…I answered while I was preparing in the studio”
