It’s something about poetic lyrics that knows how to move a listener. The opening introduction to “I SEE YA” by JKeysMWB was poised with poetry, I loved it. As a natural lover of deep messages, I found this to be profoundly refreshing in music. Gladly, JKeysMWB didn’t fail to deliver with the poignant lyricism. Everything in “I SEE YA” felt authentic, natural, and real. It reminded me of the feel-good melodic hip-hop music J.Cole tends to make. JKeysMWB is much needed in today’s culture of hip-hop. Considering the youth is heavily influenced by rap, he can change the culture and shape it into something more meaningful. With substantial music like “I See YA” there’s definitely room for him to eat.

Appreciating the value in our women, and just showing respect to the ones who give us everything such as Love, kids, and happiness the things that matter in life. The world is upside down right now and It's crazy because we take the people we need the most for granted. Being a son, brother, father, and husband I see the love women put into the world, but I also see the pain the world puts on them. I just wanted to remind them that their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.
What inspired you to write this? In what ways does it reflect on who you are as an artist JKeysMWB?
Growing up being the only boy in the house gave me a high level of respect for women. My grandmother who was born in 1932 raised me and my 2 sisters one younger and one older. I had to hear/see what adversity females had to deal with growing up first hand, and trust me it’s a lot. Watching my sisters grow from girls to women was a crazy ride. Women have to face a lot more than man in this world that’s a fact. I just wanted to create something not just for them, but for all girls/women around the world.
What’s next for you?
