Single: Key Glock – “The Greatest

The 26-Year-Old Rapper Proclaims His Supremacy In His New Single, the First of Five New Key Glock Releases Coming in May

The Song:
Moving through the industry at his own torrid pace, Key Glock never pays attention to his competition–as far as he’s concerned, he has none. Proclaiming his status as the finest rapper in South Memphis, and the rest of the world, Glock guns for the number one spot in “The Greatest,” his new video single. Reuniting with his close collaborator Bandplay, who serves up a simmering slapper dotted by ringing piano keys and arpeggiating acoustic guitars, the Paper Route Empire rapper makes like Muhammad Ali, floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee as he stacks flexes like only he can: “Heart cold as a polar bear (burr)/And name hotter than a f*cking desert/I spent $20,000 on some fur/Then spent $30,000 on some leather.” Stay tuned for the music video, dropping soon on Key Glock’s YouTube.

“The Greatest” is the first of five new singles that Glock plans to release this May. The five-pack of singles arrives during the fifth month, and serves as a tribute to Paper Route Empire and Glock’s cousin and mentor Young Dolph. #PRE5L

The new single and music video also arrives on the heels of “Let’s Go (Remix),” which reunites Key Glock and Young Dolph over triumphant production. Peaking at #59 on the Billboard Hot 100, Dolph’s remix added fuel to the fire of “Let’s Go,” which was already one of the biggest hits of Key Glock’s career. The song racked up hundreds of millions of streams, reached the Top 5 on Urban Radio, and has earned play in sports stadiums across the globe. The song inspired a cinematic video, directed by Chris Villa, a 7-minute epic for which the young rapper learned fight choreography and did his own stunts (10 million views to date). The song is a mainstay on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart (#20 peak) and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (#20 peak). “Let’s Go” is the standout track from Glockoma 2 (Deluxe), an expansion of his February 2023 album Glockoma 2, which spent 8 weeks on the Billboard 200, peaking at #13. Last month, Key Glock united with Brazilian producer Alok, one of the world’s most popular EDM artists, for a high octane “Let’s Go” (Alok Remix).

In April, Key Glock performed for the first time at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, headlining a bill that also featured Young Nudy and BigXThaPlug. The young rapper sold out the show, performing his hits in front of 10,000 adoring fans, and even inviting a lucky few onstage to rap along with songs by Key Glock and Young Dolph. The Red Rocks performance continued momentum that started in 2023 with Glock’s fast-selling SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop Nation Presents: Key Glock – Glockoma Tour,” with support from XXL Freshman TiaCorine, Dallas riser BigXThaPlug, and his PRE associates including Kenny Muney and Jay Fizzle.

Now with more than 15 million monthly listeners on Spotify, multiple Hot 100 hits to his name, and 59k tickets sold in 2023 alone, Key Glock is on the brink of taking his no-holds-barred Memphis sound to the mainstream. Stay tuned for much more music from Key Glock in May.
