The words “growth” and “power” come to mind when you think of New Orleans artist Hollygrove Keem.
“Never Loved Us (Promo Tape)” is a 6-track mini-project that serves as the prequel to Hollygrove Keem’s upcoming project, “Never Loved Us”. It is produced in part by super producer KC and features powerhouses such as the late great BTY YoungN, as well as Jay Jones, GreatWhite Stylez, Dash Carrera, and Punn Da Pusha. On April 29th, the world lost an amazing talent in BTY YoungN. His loss has affected Hollygrove Keem and many others who have vowed to make certain the BTY YoungN legacy lives on through his – and their music. One of the cuts off “Never Loved Us (Promo Tape)” is the emotional track “Letter To YoungN”.
Birthed from struggle and polished to diamond-like perfection, this amazing lyricist uses words to paint pictures of his everyday reality. While taking us through descriptions of his world, he manages to shine his bright light. Much can be achieved through hard work and discipline, and Hollygrove Keem is proof of this. His solo work, as well as that with the internationally recognized 0017th, has garnered quite a few accolades, including several NOLA Music Awards.
Hollygrove Keem is becoming a forced to be reckoned with and a lyrical phenomenon. Proof of that can be seen in the sheer number of streams and downloads his work has gotten in recent years, as well as in past media coverage. His most recent retail album is “Cut the Check”, a 13-track project put out by 0017th and one which has been widely acclaimed by critics, fans and music sites. “Never Loved Us” is poised to become another of his works that makes a way for more future greatness.

New Orleans’ 17th Ward has long been known as a hotbed of solid and unique talent – a mecca, if you will. The proverbial torch has been handed down from the legends to a new crop of lyrical creatives that includes and is a led by Jay Jones, Hollygrove Keem and prior to his recent untimely death, BTY YoungN. The trio has an amazing and unrivaled energy and are sure to leave quite a mark on the entertainment world.
The trio’s new album “Cut the Check” is a precursor to much more new music, but is a classic in and of itself. “Cut the Check” includes the smash hit with Fetty Wap entitled “The Zoo”, and contains features from the legendary Jay Da Menace (of Black Menace), recent 300 signee Navè Monjo, T3, AR-Ab, Remyboy Monty, and C-Dash. Breakout hit “Stay Down” is also included in the dope tracklisting.
Jay Jones recently began touring with Lil Wayne’s Kloser 2 U Tour and has traveled across the U.S. performing in various shows, including Wayne’s SXSW headlined show. Hollygrove Keem is a sought after rapper, having featured on countless songs with more material set to be released soon. At the time of his death on April 29th, BTY YoungN was a rising star affiliated with Cash Money/Rich Gang, and was a well-known rapper and entertainment personality.

“Cut the Check” is available for download/streaming everywhere music is sold, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal, JPay, and hundreds of other international outlets.
This past Saturday, we lost a legend – Desmone “BTY YoungN” Jerome, or “Dee” as he was known to close friends and family. His life was taken via a senseless act and we are still attempting to understand the “why” of it all. We may never know. We may not even really need to know. What we are aware of is the fact that someone so special has been needlessly stolen from us and it left a void in our hearts.
For anyone who truly knew BTY YoungN, this is a devastating loss and one we will never forget. We will carry on his legacy though, for his son, mother, sister, and his other family and friends who knew and adored him. He was a special individual. He was unique. He is irreplaceable to both the entertainment world and ours. YoungN left a mark on the hearts of those who knew him best.
We love you YoungN. And you knew this. Please look over us and keep us safe. We are just completely heartbroken right now, but we will find a way soon to make a positive out of this most negative situation. Your spirit and bright ways will live on forever.
