J. Keys – “Guilty” (Prod. By Cultural Bastards) [Video]


Shout to Gerald O for hipping me to this. Follow my bro on his show’s Twitter, IG, FB, all that. Even the website is ATLREMIX. Same name across all platforms – that’s the key. And I really feel this way, but today, it’s about more than dope handles and doper people… It’s about more KEYS! Like MORE music from J. Keys! You can bet money there’ll be at least one song of his on ATLREMIX every weekend. Maybe even this “Guilty” jawn, since the visuals are giving it even more life.

J. Keys drops the visual entitled “Guilty,” a scathing commentary on the American criminal justice system.

Produced by the Cultural Bastards, Keys said “They bodied it on the track, as soon I heard the sample I knew instantly what the song was going to be about.” For Keys it was only a matter of how to say it.

So, who’s hitting rewind a third time? Me! I am “Guilty” fam #BecauseBANGER

J. Keys – “New Year New Day” (Video)

Well we made it to 2017 and let me say Happy New Year on behalf of the entire Jayforcedotcom team.  J. Keys would like to help you start off on the right foot in 2017 with his latest track New Year New Day.  He reminds you to not just wait for the end of the year to start thinking about change but apply it with each day you are blessed with.  The visuals definitely match the track showing him being active in many different locations.  So while you are nodding your head to the groove pay attention to the message in the music as well!

This year I’m thinking bigger than the money. I’m trying to get something that you cant take from me. Trying to stay clear of the haters & the dummies. Got you eating salad trying to get rid of your tummy. Man you don’t got to wait to lose weight it don’t cost a thing to have faith.

J. Keys – “Guilty”

We have seen a lot go on currently involving police murdering unarmed Black men.  It is unfortunate that we are experiencing these encounters even worse that the cops responsible are not being tried in court.  So will Artists speak out and make music talking about this issue?  Some have done this and one of our good friends J. Keys has done just that.  His latest track “Guilty” deals with this topic over a hard hitting beat produced by Cultural Bastards.
