A Lost Pilot
Legendarykeyzz Talks How He Linked Up With Jay Critch, When He First Started Making Beats And More!
We got the chance to link up with producer, Legendarykeyzz. He’s worked with artists like Jay Critch, Rich The Kid, Yung Dred, and Soulja Boy just to name a few. He’s got hits coming your way all 2019 so be on the lookout. Check out my favorite song he produced "10 Toes” by Yung Dred.
Where are you from and what age did you first make a connection to producing music? And how long have you been producing music?
What’s good this Legendarykeyzz and I’m a 20-year-old producer located in the UK. Born in Manchester I been making beats since I was 15 it started as I got into college wasn’t until one of my friends from college came over to my house and showed me FL Studio.
What's your producer tag? How did you create it? What's the importance of having a producer tag?
Shoutout my homie Priya for making my producer tag. My old producer Tag was “Daym Legendarykeyzz Got Beats” but I recently got a new one, It now says “Legendary Made This One”. Having a producer tag is highly recommended because a lot of people recognize your beats by your tag.
What's your scene? Would you rather be at the crib cooking up beats solo? Or be in the studio collaborating with other producers?
I like doing both but it depends. I personally like to be in my crib making beats, where I can chill and create some heat but being in the studio, is beneficial. Because it’s good to network with producers and upcoming artists and you can build long term relationships and you and the artist can share ideas.
What made you start focusing on music as a career rather than just a hobby?
When I started getting paid and getting big placements and from then I started to take it more seriously.
You've worked with Yung Dred a lot how/when did you first link up with him What's your guy's relationship?
So I first started to work with Dred over social media through his homie King Slaps. When his homie hit me up 3 years ago asking me for beats so I sent a pack and never heard back from him until a year later. From there me, Slaps, and Dred started working. And then his brother Richie Wess was on tour with Rich The Kid in Manchester, Uk. That’s how I linked up with Rich The Kid and Richie Wess. Dred like my big bro we have been working back and forth we got hits coming.
How/when did you first connect with Jay Critch? Can you run us through making the "Glistening" beat? How did Critch end up hopping on it?
Well, I met Jay Critch a few times in Uk with Richie Wess and Dred in London and Manchester. I went on holiday to Turkey, while I was on holiday, they asked me to send a pack of beats when they got back to the USA I sent a pack to Critch and his homie and they were in the studio and they made a hit to it. Me and Critch got more fire coming.
Can you run us through the process of making the "My Brother And Me"? How did Richie Wess, Yung Dred, and Rich The Kid end up hopping on it?
So my homie Cail beats and Labcook was making some heat and Cail sent me over the collab. I add the percussions and drums and gave it the final touches. Then when I met Richie Wess and Rich The Kid and Jay Critch on tour in Manchester Uk I showed Richie Wess and Rich The Kid the beat and they were fucking with it. When they got back to America Richie Wess texted my phone and said we about to make a hit, it went on from there.
Can you run us through making the "10 Toes" beat? How did Dred end up hopping on it?
So I actually linked up with another producer who paid to work with me in a studio session in person, we linked up and we cooked up that ten toes beat and I sent it straight over to Yung Dred. And got that producer a placement on a Yung Dred mixtape with Lil Baby.
Any advice to producers trying to establish a name for themselves in 2019?
Keep networking stay consistent, never give up, and invest in producer collabs, that’s how I got my Soulja boy placement, it can help you a lot. And try to work with upcoming artists as u never know who can pop off. Just like how I did with my artist from Brooklyn, Trev Mullah we’ve been working for 4 years straight. After 3 years of working online, he finally came to the UK and we made some hits in the studio and now he doing numbers in the UK. Just keep putting in that work and all them long nights it’ll pay off one day.
What's on the horizon for your music career in 2019?
2019 is my year I'm working harder than ever. I’m still networking with new artists. But I'll let my work speak for itself.
