Faithful – Burd&Keyz ft. Luu Breeze, A-Game & Jahron B

November 15, 2011

I’ve been loving everything from Burd & Keyz for a minute and was just as shocked as the rest of the music community when Keyz suddenly passed away at such a young age last year.  I didn’t know him personally and the fact that he was just steps away from me on stage at one of the first Sound Battle Royale beat competitions in 2010 not long before be passed was another jarring example of how fleeting life can be.  I think it’s beyond fantastic that Burd, his production partner, is continuing his legacy by completing the Keyz of Life project he’d begun. Some background details on the project are below, and if you haven’t checked out the previous releases from this project (which include Shi Wisdom, Rich Kidd, Blake Carrington, Kardinal Offishall and more), you seriously don’t know what you’ve been missing. Even Okayplayer has already given a co-sign, so what are you waiting for??

The full project is due out next month, but the newest single from the Keyz of Life project features Luu Breeze, A-Game and Jahron B (produced by Burd&Keyz and T-Minus)….. ENJOY!!

In 2010 Anthony “Durty Keyz” James from production duo Burd & Keyz passed away suddenly from a bacterial infection called Streptococcus. He was 23 years old. Before he passed, he had started a project called Keyz of Life. In his honour his production partner Andrew “Burd” Liburd decided to finish the project. Featuring artists like Kardinal Offishall, Luu Breeze, Nickelus F, JD Era, SonReal, Blake Carrington, Shi Wisdom, A-Game, OmarLunan aka Oh!, Promise, Redway, Rich Kidd, Rochester, Divine Brown and more, Keyz of Life not only pays homage to Keyz but also to his flourishing home city of Toronto. Set for a December release, Keyz of Life has already garnered critical acclaim for its first single, “LoveSpeak” by Shi Wisdom feat. KJ:

“Producers Burd & Keyz put down some lovely chords over a a flip of the “Let’s Ride” drums and the way Shi Wisdom comes through, it might just top the original Dilla track as your new favorite.” –
