What is an Emcee? According to Keith Concept its much more than music. "To consider yourself an emcee, in my eyes. Its much more than rocking a show or recording a song. You can't just throw your emcee clothes on and you become that role. Its take years of mastering the craft." And for over a decade, Keith Concept has done just that. From meeting DJ LoPro at 716 Records at the age of 16. To sharing the stage with such acts as: Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Ill Bill and Slaine of La Coka Nostra, Necro, Inspectah Deck, GZA and DJ Muggs, Dilated Peoples, RA the Rugged Man, Kool G. Rap. That's just to name a few. Keith Concept has matured over the past 10 years into an artist ready to show the world what he has to offer. "One thing about being from Buffalo is that, this is a tough crowd to please. The Hip Hop heads here know what good music is and we bite our tongue for no one. If your music is wack, you won't last." This attitude is what gave Keith a household name in Buffalo. No matter what city or what venue, Keith seems to take the spotlight. He is an artist with passion, determination, and ready to take the stage at the drop of a hat. "I'm pretty much ready for whatever. I've been at this for too long to not be acknowledged." Hip Hop is so much more than music. It is a culture and a way of life in which these artists live. From a young teen to a grown man, Keith has been Hip Hop. Being one of the members of Buffalos own hip hop collective Milkfat to performing and recording as an artist on Buffalo NY's DeepThinka Records. He has etched his name in Buffalo NY. Now working with the EVC (Essential Vitamins Crew) and THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD (Keith Concept and Type Relevant), 2012 has been "unbelievable". "The Crew I'm with consists of everyone. Emcees, Producers, Promoters, Fans, and friends. This is our Buffalo thing and we do this for us and people like us. 2013 will be very entertaining for sure."
