My’Key Iso’s 3 Feet From Gold Show was a showcase of his latest album. The work, which took three years to complete, is a display of the work and emotions that My’Key went through for one thousand and ninety-five days. The album, released on his birthday, is a display of lyrical skill paired alongside My’Key’s ear for melodies. Both were evident Saturday night as My’Key performed tracks like “Durag & Bonnet,” “The Illest”,and “To The Stars Again”, a powerful song about overcoming depression assisted by vocalist Ei8ht.
“I went to two funerals today, but it was important for me to be here,” said Ei8ht as she prepared to perform alongside My’Key. “I need all of your positive energy to get through this.”
“My’Key and I aren’t just friends…we’re brothers,” said Peppa Don as he walked off the stage after his performance. “Watching him put this album together, execute its release, organize this show and perform is an inspiration. Being able to see all of this is just a blessing.”
