"Baker Center Programming Presents KEYEL and Poetic Republic"

ATHENS, OH (April 14, 2009) – Baker Center Programming is excited to bring two of Cleveland’s hottest hip-hop groups, KEYEL and Poetic Republic, on Saturday, April 25 at 9 p.m. to the Baker Center Front Room. The event is free for all attendees and will provide a new, fresh brand of music to the Ohio University campus.
KEYEL is a hip hop group consisting of emcee’s Prose, Holy Moly, Pease, and DJ ESO. While the emcees have been childhood friends for many years, the collective that is now known as KEYEL was born from a mutual love of raw hip hop and appreciation of similar influences. KEYEL has successfully recreated a sound that is equal parts classic hip hop and new age dope. Their pledge is to keep it all about the music as they continue to develop sonically.

The New Dope



For years hip-hop culture has been the voice of young people. Through style, dance, art, and music hip-hop has pushed forward and evolved into a worldwide phenomenon. As of late it seems that the game has given birth to a generation of emcees that have forgotten hip-hops roots. KEYEL not only remembers but embodies the art. KEYEL is a group of emcees, and a Dj who shared a common outlook on life and hip hop music, and came together in a time where music as a whole began to change. Hailing from the mid western city of Cleveland, Ohio; they follow in the path of hip-hops greats such as Slum Village, J-Dilla, Common, and Blackstar. With innovative production, thought provoking lyrics, and fresh sense of style, KEYEL is guaranteed to get heads nodding all across the world. Real hip-hop is back. PS, Prose, Dj ESO, and Holy are KEYEL.
