In anticipation of their debut full-length album Ridin High, Keelay & Zaire are releasing a free EP this month to give us a taste of what they can bring to the table. Entitled Prelude To Drive, the EP is riddled with impressive guest artists. “Exclusive Sh!t” features Supastition, a North Carolina native, who provides a heavy hitting flow to the track. He wants us to know that he’s head and shoulders above his competition when it comes to his prowess on the mic and his lyrics get right to this point. Put his in-your-face style on top of Keelay & Zaire’s gritty and well produced beat, and you’ve got a classic hip-hop jam in the making.
Keelay & Zaire are a bi-coastal team that operates with only one concrete rule; creating music with unlimited range. Complementing each other’s styles with precision, Kee & Zee work as a sole production machine that spawns gritty classic hip-hop, soulful R&B, and any other medium that requires an exclusive sound from the team. With Keelay out west in San Francisco, and Zaire in the east, holding it down in Virginia, the two have almost unlimited resources from which to draw talent and inspiration. In their debut LP Ridin High, the pair’s versatility takes center stage, backed up by a talented cast of emcees and singers including Phonte of Little Brother, Supastition, Blu, Cali Agents, Darien Brockington, Tash of Tha Liks, Saafir, Fortilive, The Park, Emilio Rojas, Surreal ,Slo-Mo, Mario Dones, The A.V.E., J.Fish, Jony Fraze, Whooligan, and Tiffany Paige. Keelay & Zaire’s Ridin High will be released in early 2009 by MYX Music Label.
