IAA: What city and state are you from?
STOP 6 LOW KEE: I’m from Ft. Worth, Texas. Also known as Ft. Murda Worth or Funky Town. I grew up on the east side in the STOP 6 / Eastwood area.
IAA: What is your music background?
STOP 6 LOW KEE: My music background is hip hop/rap/gangsta rap. I developed an interest in music in the early 90’s, and then began writing my own raps at the age of 12 or 13. It wasn’t until recently that I started pursuing rap as a business and not just a hobby. After years of living a life of crime to survive, instead of utilizing my talent, I am now happy to say, `I am retired from my former way of life.’ Now my grind is to display my God-given talent to write and spit hot lyrics.
IAA: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
STOP 6 LOW KEE: Because I feel that there is a demand for the real life stories that I put to music. Writing, recording, and performing my own music is what I love to do. I think I’m a pretty good judge of music, and I think my ish is hot, so I want to share it with the world.
IAA: What are your songs about?
STOP 6 LOW KEE: Life experiences and ghetto dreams

MC Eiht, Spice 1, Hot Boyz, Dj Qwik, Outkast, Scarface, Too $hort, 8 Ball & MJG, MYSTIKAL, and the entire cast of the movie Krush Groove lol. I mean the list goes on.
IAA: How would you describe your music to people?
STOP 6 LOW KEE: Real life imitating art would best describe my music.
IAA: What makes you stand out from other artists?
STOP 6 LOW KEE: My versatility makes me stand out. Also, unlike a lot of artist, I write, and record my own lyrics. My life experiences created the elite being that I am. Aside from that, my profound delivery alone places me in a league of my own. So much so, I’m thinking of creating my own musical genre, lol. Honestly, I think I have a hunger, drive, and work ethic that a lot of today’s artist don’t possess.
IAA: Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in your music career and how did you overcome?

Finances are needed to get to the next level. Also, not having a platform to convey my talent at times became a challenge. Once I found an outlet to present my music to the world, I kept pressing. I kept putting it in their face until I got their attention. Now, here we are.

Beware of counterfeits. It’s some imitators out there trying to copy and use my name saying they are Low-Kee. If they are not from FT. Murda Worth, TX. Stop 6-East Side, it’s not me! (est.1993)
