My name is Keith Samuel Jr. I have many different names that I have gone by. Like Dazzle, Buddy Luv, Dip, Chaz, and so on and so forth. But the one most will remember is Keyz. Im from the city of Fort Wayne in Indiana but was raised in Indianapolis. I was born August 18, 1982. I started doing music at the age of 13 and havent been able to let go since. I started of in the lunch room with someone knocking a beat on the lunch table and just going off the head (freestlyin). My music is much different then most Ive heard.
I was influenced by artists such as 2Pac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim, Big L, Eazy E, Big Pun, Jay-Z, Nas, and many other important M-Cs. But as well as rappers I grew up on soul music and funk from listening to what my parents listened to. Artists such as Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Funkadelic, R-Kelly, Al Green, Aretha Franklin, and many others as well. My music is made to make you think. It is designed to push the bar of whats ok. I dont believe in censorship because it takes away from creativity. But I also believe there is a time and a place for everything.
I differ from song to song. I have some songs about love like Keepin it Real and I also have songs that challenge your mind like Make U Wanna Holla. I speak on 3 core things and 3 core things alone. Those are things Ive been thru, things Ive seen, and things Ive I have direct knowledge of. I love to have a good time like anyone else but I know from my experiences that life just isnt that way. For every positive there is a negative. I speak the truth even if it gets me in trouble. I feel thats my gift to the world. My mother has a saying that I live by and it goes as follows. Eyes have not Seen and Ears have not Heard the greatness God has in store for you. Im not a rapper, Im not a M-C, Im a artist and Im serious about this!!
