Pretty self explanatory…the homies Tunji, Kam Moye, Jern Eye, and Evangillest rocking rhymes over live production from Keelay and Cook. Shout to GregTheDude on the visuals!
As I mentioned in the post for the viral clip of “We Made It,” Kee & Zee’s newest video for “Alright With Me” has already been picked up by MTVu. Dopeness. Phonte had like 8 bars in this track and killed it. Shout to all my Cali familia in the video too…
Spotted at the Smoking Section.
Chyea, more great visuals from the homies Keelay & Zaire, this time featuring Mario Dones. If you haven’t checked out Ridin’ High yet, you better get on that. The next video off the album will be for “Alright With Me” with Dminor and Phonte and I heard through the grapevine that it’s already been accepted by MTV. Shout to the whole MYX Music Label fam.
Look at me staying up late on a Sunday night to archive the show right away, fresh off the presses for y’all. Well, to be honest, I’m actually posting it up with the quickness because I’m trying to prep for this week as best I can. It’s set to be a crazy one as I’ll be headed down to SXSW in Austin on Wednesday and coming back to Seattle right before the next SNSS, so free time will be at a minimum. In fact, J. Moore will also be down there with a lot of the 206 family, so if you’re there too, give us a shout. SNSS x SXSW, you know what it is.
Shout to Keelay (of Keelay & Zaire) and Nightclubber Lang for coming through last night’s show as well. If you haven’t copped Kee & Zee’s Ridin’ High album, you’re sleeping on one of the best releases of the year. Look out for some video footage of the interview coming soon as well. In the meantime, enjoy the audio:

Haaa, word to the old St. Ides commercials. Be on the lookout for Keelay & Zaire’s album, Ridin’ High, dropping on February 24th on Myx Music. K&Z are some of the illest producers out right now and the guest list is bananas: Phonte, Tash, Blu, Tunji, Cali Agents, Supastition, Darien Brockington, Fortilive, and more. Chyea.
Supa came through the world famous Wake Up Show with Keelay & Zaire and blessed the mic with some verses. Great stuff, but did Tech really not know who he was? Yeesh. Bad form from a legendary hip-hop dude, but at least Supa made sure he’ll remember him from now on.
Shout to the Myx Music fam who was in the building as well.
If you’ve been sleeping lately, Keelay & Zaire are an incredible production duo that have been doing their thing for a minute now. They’re about to drop their debut full length album, Ridin’ High, at the start of next year and people are finally starting to catch on.
Here’s the video for their current single, “The Times,” featuring Blu, Fortilive, and Nino Moschella. If you’ve been listening to Sound Session, you’ve heard this one and the b-side, “Addicts For Real,” with the homey Tunji. It’s been a long week, so my memory is failing on me, but I thiiiiiiink I remember hearing that there will be a video coming for that joint as well. Do yourself a favor and get familiar with these dudes. Shout to Karim and the whole Myx Music family too. Big things in ’09!
