Native to Norwalk, Connecticut, rapper Be Kay held a heavy destiny awaiting his arrival into this life. But, before becoming the artist and industry figure he is today, he found himself having to overcome odds while still in his mother’s womb. At only a few weeks, his mother was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, placing both their lives at death’s door unless doctors performed an emergency C-section. Be Kay would make it into this world on 11-11-1992.
As the years went by, his parents took a turn down varying paths, separating when he was six. Over the course of the next five years, he went from an only child, to becoming the eldest brother of five siblings, and having a stepfather and stepmother. Becoming overwhelmed with the changes in his life, college was an escape to gain some footing on his future.
It was along this path that the seed that would bloom into a lucrative music career would be planted. In 2001, Be Kay received Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint” as a gift. Hov’s maneuverability over beats with the level of lyricism that made him one of the greatest, impressed heavily on Be Kay. His mind found a new love, and that new love was hip-hop. He became a student of the game, studying every word and melody of tracks he’d listen to, familiarizing himself with the cadence that gained rappers respect and recognition.
Be Kay would grow deeper in music when he started an internship at Sono Entertainment and Recording Studios in 2012. Investing hours daily, he developed a close bond with the studio owners Dolo & Sweets, who became the mentors that molded his craftmanship. Their knowledge and guidance in writing, rapping and mixing was passed on to Be Kay, and he has since used it to build a core fanbase and solid career writing hundreds of songs both for himself and other artists. His skills an artist gained the recognition in his city of Connecticut, being placed in the top ten of Connecticut’s Got Talent with his crowd favorite song Daylight.
Be Kay would suffer a tragic loss, when his mentor and close friend Dolo, passed away due to complications from an Asthma attack in 2017. Be Kay, barely having time to grieve, had to step in and fill Dolo’s very large shoes, perfecting his craft in recording, mixing, and editing videos among other tasks. Carrying on the legacy and business and becoming the lead engineer and studio manager at SoNo Entertainment in Dolo’s stead, his mentor would sure be proud of who he’s become.
Now, Be Kay is looking to deliver a project that promises to be the best composition of his career to date. The album, titled “Four Ones For All” is scheduled for release on 11/11 and of the eleven songs on the album, all has it’s own vibe and tells it’s own tale in the storyline of the project. It flows like one fluent rendition complimenting the next, giving the listener an experience that paints Be Kay’s emotions in vivid texture. Songs like “No Accident,” “Out My Mind,”and “Call Me,” detail the emotional rollercoaster at the loss of his mentor. The album is mostly self-recorded/engineered with productions by SGULL, who produced NLE Choppa’s “Birdboy.” The album finds inception from a place of purpose as told at its beginning, “Four consecutive ones have significance in many cultures. Some people make a wish when the clock strikes 11:11, some see it as a connection to a higher power, or even as an affirmation that you’re on the right path. My path began on 11/11 and led me here to share Four Ones For All.”
