(HEAT EXCLUSIVE) King EGO, Hollygrove artist on the rise
WARRIOR: A PERSON ENGAGED OR EXPERIENCED IN WARFARE; SOLDIER;
A PERSON WHO SHOWS OR HAS SHOWN GREAT VIGOR, COURAGE, OR AGGRESSIVENESS, AS IN POLITICS OR ATHLETICS.
New Orleans‘ infamous 17th Ward neighborhood Hollygrove has birthed many a musical legend. And it touts some of the most resilient, unique, talented, and beautiful people that can be found anywhere in the world. Hollygrove is indeed a glistening one-of-a-kind diamond in the rough.
Meet King EGO, another one of Hollygrove’s hidden gems. A fiercely intellectual and artistic leader with the heart of a lion, this warrior leaves no stone unturned in his quest for making some of the dopest music around.
King EGO is one of those artists that never ceases to amaze. From his endless vocabulary to his quick wit and epic storytelling ability, he makes sure to leave his mark on every track he graces.
We caught up with him this weekend and learned a lot of about King EGO. Check out his interview:
New Orleans standout Hollygrove Keem is back with new visuals to his “Who Run It” Freestyle, available on You Tube.
Keem is well-known in entertainment circles and has long been a standout among his musical peers. Hailing from the infamous Hollygrove neighborhood, Hollygrove Keem has built his brand from the ground up over the past couple of years, having toured the nation with 0017th and worked with the likes of Fetty Wop, the late great BTY YoungN, Jay Jones, Reem, Punn Da Pusha, and more. He has endured more than his share of pain over the past couple of years, but that only served to push him harder. Ask around – Hollygrove Keem is back, better than ever and ready to take his place among the stars of his generation.

Artwork for what’s about to be the hottest song of the Summer (“Kitchen Dance”) has been leaked. The late great BTY YoungN and the hot young lyricist Hollygrove Keem put together this masterpiece shortly before YoungN’s untimely death. The track is produced by super producer KC.
Visuals were shot and edited by 2K Films and have a pending release date. The video features not only BTY YoungN and Hollygrove Keem, but also Mario P (@_mariodacomic_) and some of the cutest little kids you’ll ever see!
Stay Tuned. These two amazing artists are about to turn Summer 2017 white hot!
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.
It will not be long before Hollygrove Keem takes his place among the stars of today’s hip hop music – while aiming for the superstardom that awaits him.
Dope rapper and entertainment personality Hollygrove Keem just dropped the visuals to his new song “Go To Hell”. Its lyrics are deep and thought provoking and provide a little insight into the often times bleak world of young men in New Orleans, Louisiana. The video was filmed and directed by @TheFamousPhil.
It’s our hope that through talented lyricists such as Keem, positive changes will come about and opportunities will increase.
Keem is not only one of the hottest and most recognizable rappers in the country – he’s also quickly becoming one of the brightest and strongest forces in urban music. His raw but colorful storytelling ability enables his listeners to enter his world and really be able to decipher what’s happening from afar – so much so that he has been nominated for awards by the NOLA Music Awards, numerous times in multiple categories.
Keem is one of Hollygrove’s shining superstars. His association with 0017th conmbined with networking capabilities has helped to catapult him to notoriety. He is preparing to drop new music that includes tributes to his late great partner-in-rhyme, BTY YoungN.
Stay tuned for much more from Hollygrove Keem. Follow him:
