"Keith Jacobs Releases Title Track off New EP ‘Still Tippin’"

Indie artist Keith Jacobs is back with the brand new song “Still Tippin,” the first release off his forthcoming compilation project of the same name. The EP is a collection of songs that the singer-songwriter never formally released and have only been available for purchase at his live shows.

The entire project was written and produced by his frequent collaborators The Good Guys. When Keith and Good Guys producer Tedyp produced “Still Tippin” everything was intentional. “From sampling Houston, Texas rappers Mike Jones, Slim Thug, and Paul Wall, to Shaquille Sunflower aka Martin Payne explaining his love for Gina Watters in the opening skit of the song, to playing Master P’s “Bout It Bout It” synth in the second verse…it was all intentional,” they explain.

The track brings vintage ’90s R&B flavor, coupled with some first hand experiences of being an out-of-state student on an HBCU campus, and a few words from the heart.

"Ready for Keith Jacobs..."Just Say Go"!"

Discovering raw talent in North Texas is no rarity! This is an understatement when it comes to R&B crooner Keith Jacobs. Keith Jacobs is a 24 year old native of Houston, Texas currently residing in Dallas. Often referred to as Keif J, Keith began mesmerizing audiences at the tender age of three. Noted for his unparalleled stage presence, distinct style, and sultry vocals, it's no surprise that Keith has opened for numerous major recording artists including Erykah Badu, Ne-Yo, 112, and Jamie Foxx to name a few.

With an incredible sense of songwriting, passion and emotion encompass the feeling of Jacobs' debut album, "Just Say Go" which was released in 2011! Partially autobiographical, listeners can expect to be taken on a journey through pleasure, pain, triumph, joy, and of course, love.

Because Jacobs raises the standard of what is expected from an artist, he is one R&B artist fans will not forget! - The Examiner: Authored by Mildred Batts

"[Eargasms] @KeifJay talks Christmas, Meeting Prince, “Still Tippin”+ More"


The Culture Supplier – Jada D.
I had a chance to sit down and chat with Houston native, Keith Jacobs last night. Let me be the first to say this “soulful, smooth, and very sexy” Keith Jacobs had a lot to say about his passion for music, the foundation of music, and what to expect from him next. With the holidays coming up I couldn’t help but ask about what was most important to him.

“I just want to celebrate the real reason for Christmas….During this time for me, I take off from whatever I’m doing and spend as much time with my family to let them know how much I appreciate and love them.” Ladies, his sincerity extends beyond the holidays, but he let me know he can only cook breakfast but doesn’t mind being a taste tester for any of your meals.

When it comes to music Keith said “I fell in love with music when I was in school.” Unlike many artists that grew up knowing they would sing professionally, Keith credits the support of his classmates from Southern University in Louisiana for pushing him to pursue his passion for music.
He agrees that R&B has changed, but this is the best time for this genre. “R&B has really changed, but it’s not going anywhere…..As opposed to rhythm & blues – its rhythm & bass now.”

Who do you think @KeifJay looks up to? PRINCE of course! “I love Prince’s music because for one he was so talented and he was genius and he could get on stage and do any and everything. For two, He was never to push the status quo. Prince was never afraid to be the person that he was and was create how he wanted to create his own music. And he made the world kind of catch up. That has allowed him to stand the test of time.”

His production team The Good Guys, are doing great things with several placements around the world but Keith wants to focus on his artistry. “When I’m writing these joints, I really want to tell my story.” His single STRUGGLE really tells where his life as been. As a person he’s close-minded and keeps his emotions in (like most men) but for him music is an outlet.

In STILL TIPPIN he discussed his previous “situationship” and shares his story about a life in the music industry and still wanting others to be who they are suppose to be – even we he can’t be there. The last verse of STILL TIPPIN is a tribute to his homie and guardian angel Quailland, who started the musical journey with him but passed away while he was still in Louisiana.
[LYRIC: R.I.P. Quailland I’ma do it.] “I promised him that I’m not going to stop. Even when life happens I’m Still Tippin’, I’m still pushing for what these goals and dreams are really meant to be.”

Hearing the story behind his music will almost immediately draw you in to his infectious positive vibes. Keith’s genuine spirit, amazing sound, and exciting energy knows that he’s “so close to IT that he can feel it.”
His unreleased STILL TIPPIN EP is available only at his live performances. - The Culture Supplier: Authored by Jada Davis

"Keith Jacobs Releases New Video “WBAB (Wanna Be A Baller)”"

We last heard from indie artist Keith Jacobs with his fall 2015 single “Still Tippin,” now the Houston native returns with a brand new single and video, “WBAB (Wanna Be A Baller)“.

Following his ’90s and local influences, Keith borrows from the classic Lil Troy hit of the same name for the Thug n’ B anthem, while he encourages positivity and addresses today’s fame obsessed culture.

Posted up at the University of Houston and riding through the city streets, Keith takes viewers into his world as he sings out, “Gotta hit the highway, making money the fly way / No we got to be a better way, better way, better way.” -

It’s been said that if you don’t know the words to Lil Troy’s 90s hit “Wanna Be A Baller” then you will be to completely kicked you out of the state, and I can’t say that I disagree with that.

Houston native, Keith Jacobs aka Keif J, is here to bring the track back to life with a soulful spin. This track is definitely one that deserves to be played with the top back while cruising through the city. In fact, the video is filed with visuals of Keith chilling at Houston’s favorite spots that make a big part of Houston’s culture such as Frenchy’s, University Of Houston, Fifth Ward and Shipley’s donuts.
