Key Glock: Bio/Wiki, Educational Background, Career, Girlfriend and Net Worth

Markeyvius LaShun Cathey known professionally as Key Glock or sometimes as Glizock, is an American rapper and songwriter from Memphis, Tennessee. He is also widely known as the cousin of late American rapper, Young Dolph. He rose to popularity in 2017 with his mixtape “Glock Season”. He is signed to Young Dolph’s record label Paper Route Empire. As a rapper, Key Glock started rapping at an early age of 16 at home. It was a custom for the Memphis rapper to freestyle over his favorite beats in the cadence and word play of the artists he admired the most.

The first track that Glock recorded himself was a freestyle of Future’s “Ain’t No Way Around It” in 2011. In 2016, he uploaded his first song to the web titled “actors” which was a remix of Gucci Mane’s “Don’t deserve it” that was quickly adopted by a small circle of followers. The song was much more of an Atlanta trap song but Key Glock quickly changed his style to quickly match the bass-heavy and earthy feel of Memphis rap.
