Among the rappers in Atlanta's burgeoning underground, Key! seems to always find himself in the right place: he already claimed the recently signed Two-9 crew, and has a thundering closing verse on Father's undeniable "Look At Wrist." On his latest song, "Dimes," uploaded to Soundcloud with a screenshot cover starring Rihanna, those moments of good fortune are not at the forefront of his mind. Instead the production by Dexter--not this guy--is dark and foggy, and Key! appears woozy and cross-faded, not sure how to act or what to do. Just keep playing "Look At Wrist" dude, it'll all be okay.
