Biography

Over five years of dedication has led to their creation of thought provoking lyrics, taking you on a brilliantly produced journey of dreamscapes and sounds, rich with intensity, ultimately taking Hip Hop to another level. Kay and Aace, born, Kyle Layton and Aaron Cromwell, spent their young years listening to the groundbreakers of the Canadian Hip Hop scene, absorbing the elements, which paved the way for the success of such artists as Maestro Fresh Wes, Dream Warriors, Rascalz, K-Os and Kardinal Offishall.

Last year the group was presented an offer by an American indie label, which they declined, as they felt their sound wasn't at the desired level yet. "You only have one chance to make a first impression and we wanted to make sure when that opportunity presented itself, that we were ready" (Aaron Cromwell).

Kay and Aace have devoted the last two years to the development and mastery of their abilities as lyricists. Along with their producer Ill Angelo, are now ready to make their first impression with their debut album "Dream World".

Highlighting this lyrical duo's awakening career, Kay and Aace have earned success in being the number one opening act for international and Canadian Urban artists streaming through Western Canada. Kay and Aace have also had the opportunity to spread their success and be heard beyond their stomping grounds, touring with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, Eve, Nas, The Game, Akon, Rihanna, Truth Hurts, 2 Live Crew, Carl Henry, Shawn Desman, Keshia Chante, Red 1, Obie Trice, Genuwine, Mario, Fabolous, Boyz II Men, Sean Kingston, etc., and this is only the beginning. Look forward to hearing Kay and Aace's August radio debut of their first single, "SHINE," off their album "Dream World." Also, look out for a short movie to be posted on their Myspace page as well as their website.

Hip Hop is changing, and Kay and Aace are on the leading edge of that change. This could possibly be the greatest Hip Hop album to ever come out of Canada.

"I feel this is an opportunity to take Canadian Hip Hop to another level. We (Canadian Urban Artists) all need to improve our song writing skills, and overall production of our records. Until then, it's hard to compete with records coming out of the U.S. This is exactly what we have done. We've taken two years to hone our song writing and production skills, because we want to compete on the world stage. We are confident enough to say we now have a world class record" (Kyle Layton).

Kay & Aace – Shine - Lyrics

[Chorus]

[Lamar Ashe]
I shine you shine you my baby
Dont leave me under the cloud
We all need love
We all we got

I shine you shine you my baby
Dont leave me under the cloud
We all need love

[Kay]
Breathe mommy
The kid Kay got everything you need mommy
Im a diamond you my light
Im a rhymer you my mic
And our body parts are gonna be aligning through the night
Cause i done so many wrongs now its time to do you right
So just stick with Kay shorty we'll be shining through the night
Cause through all the rain and the crazy times
I just wanna see my baby shine, shine
heh - im trippin
Cause i aint thinking just do her
Gotta get my swagger right and spit the game crisp to her
She winked at me and yeh i blew a kiss to her
Put my hands on her waist, pulled her close and said this to her

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

[Aace]
Through all the rain and the crazy times
I just wanna see my baby shine

[Lamar Ashe]
I just wanna see you shine

[Kay]
Through all the rain and the crazy times
I just wanna see my baby shine

[Lamar Ashe]
I just wanna see you shine

[Aace]
Baby you should shine like a star
My fine sexy lady is what you are
Shopping with the card with unlimited charge
Best, close the gold, you deserve it all
Your eyes shining and your smile is blinding your a special one
A real rare finding
Just some spare time to do the bump and grind
Just wanna see my baby shine
Without you , no , theres no us
Seeking for your sweet soft sexual touch
Lets skip the fight, and make some love
Start wit your toes kiss all of the above

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

[Lamar Ashe 3rd Verse]
If you wanna ride

Spend some time

I wanna hear you say
Yeh yeh yeh yeh

If you wanna ride
Call on me
You wanna spend some time
Call on me
Dont be shy

Yeh yeh yeh yeh

[Chorus]

Movin That

Written By: Kyle Layton, Aaron Cromwell

Kay & Aace – Moving' That - Lyrics

[Kay]
I'm a nemesis
When i step up on the premises
Smooth criminal like mike no blemishes
I'm so co-z when i move an o-z
Sure the jeweler sees a portion of the proceeds
Whoever knows me knows he never owes me
Unless he grows weed or leave em with a nose bleed
And all the birds yeah they heard I'm fly
You could tell by the way my words slur I'm high
If a nigga wanna get me he got nerve to try
But if i catch a nigga telling he deserve to die
Now i hate to wish death but we need less snitches
And if we talking money then we need less bitch's
So if you working with the police best wishes
You need to get stitches slowly and press pictures
They telling me that i should be a little less vicious
Is Kay really moving weight
Huh, guess bitch's

[Chorus]

[Aace]
I been moving that
I been moving that
I been moving that

[Kay]
We getting money nigga
We getting money nigga

[Aace]
I been moving that
I been moving that
I been moving that

[Kay]
We getting money nigga
We getting money nigga

[Aace]
I got a mic style
Niggas call it spit shine
Its how i get mine
Drop another hot rhyme
Flow keep me on top of the top dimes
Mc dealer selling dope lines
You can be hyper, a lot more tighter
If you got Kay & Aace to be your ghost writers
Move weight kid you can dress a lil flyer
Smoke more bitch you can get a little higher
Blitz beats make me spazz like a skitzo
Pusha man bitch thats how i gets dough
And we can sip till we sick of the hypno
And girl i know that you know bout fellatio
Put work in, dirt in for certain
Closed curtain verbal slice like a surgeon
District 5
Couldn't do it on your best day
I keep it moving
Insure i got a nes-tag

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

[Kay]
Everybody wanna hate me
Everybody wanna hate
Whats a nigga to do
When everybody wanna hate me
Whats a nigga to do
Everybody wanna hate me
Whats a nigga to do
So whats a nigga to do

Do not confuse this as entertainment
This is my life
Whether right or wrong
This is not an image
We trying to do what we gotta do to survive
Failure is not an option
Follow me

[Chorus]

Home Now

Written By: Kyle Layton, Aaron Cromwell

Kay & Aace – Home Now - Lyrics

[Chorus]

[Kay]
I call my momma and im tellin her that
I call my sister and im tellin her that
I call my girl and im tellin her that

[Aace]
I'm coming home now
I'm coming home now

[Kay]
I call my daddy and im tellin him that
I call my brother and im tellin him that
I call my homies pop a bottle like that

[Aace]
I'm coming home now
I'm coming home now

[Aace Verse]
Been around the world
Aint nothing like home no
Judgment is thrown, im back where i belong
Back to a place i found a familiar face
That home cooked taste got my heart feeling safe
Momma how you doing, papa where you been
The lesson that you missed you know the streets chipped in
And trust is not a issue, something important to tell you
The lord call me home before i see you again i love you

[Chorus]

[Kay Verse]
Im coming home to my rightful position
Cause the journey that ive been on insightful just listen
Had to introduce the world to this type of a vision
And everything you hearing was written right from a prison
Hit the bottom so expressing my right to be risen
And when they let me out i swear my whole live will be driven
Gotta make it home my family's where my heart is at
Give me another chance take me where i started at
In the beginning as a child abused and restricted
Wrongfully arrested accused and convicted
I'm more then what they think of me or made me out to be
My momma knows the justice system had it out for me
And every night i know she prays and patiently waits
I wounder if heavens gon let me through them pearly gates
Cause if not, all i ask is Jesus let me breathe
I'm coming back and i promise i aint gon never leave

[Chorus]

[Kay]
You know its kinda funny

[Aace]
Whats that

[Kay]
I never imagined this in my wildest dreams

[Aace]
True, but aint nothing like home

[Kay]
Yeh, Kay & Aace

[Bridge/Outro]

[Kay]
Yeh ive been around the world but yup

[Aace]
I'm coming home now
I'm coming home now

[Kay]
Yeh i was gone for a minute but yup

[Aace]
I'm coming home now
I'm coming home now

[Kay]
Yeh ive seen alot of places but yup

[Aace]
I'm coming home now
I'm coming home now
