ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just Sayin' is a lively, animated, fun-loving brother representing Rosedale all day every day. This Queens-bred and Brooklyn-born emcee creates and performs music that is a direct reflection of his emotion and passion. But don’t get it twisted. It isn’t all about fun and jokes. Just Sayin' is a brother who knows who he is. He is a direct product and representative of The Golden Era of Hip Hop striving to create timeless contributions to music and global culture. A man of Achievement, Just Sayin' is a living example of the motto, “Work equals play.” On stage, Just Sayin' is a free-spirited, buckwild, animated showman. Off stage, Keith Julian Richards is a focused, driven, business-minded individual who thrives on excellence and an incessant need to learn, create, achieve. His music is a testament to the human spirit and to experiences that everyone can relate to. Just Sayin's career began early in his life; he’s been writing ever since he learned to read. It all started after he won first prize in a local Black History Poetry contest at age 10. “I never thought anything of it so I just continued to write poems for my family.” Writing poetry, coupled with the natural ability to articulate, find words that rhyme, and a deep love of music and hip hop consciousness, the progression toward emceeing was quite natural. In junior high school, he continued to impress his fellow students and faculty with his poetry and eventually wrote his first rhyme. The inspiration to conquer the stage came in high school when Just dominated the lunchroom rhyming ciphers. After a successful performance at Martin Van Buren High School’s Star Search talent show, he discovered his natural ability to move the crowd. “As time went on, I realized that rocking crowds, making music and listening to music was all that really made me happy,” reflects Just. Throughout his high school and collegiate career, Just's dynamic style continued to rile up audiences at various venues, creating a loyal following. His major inspirations include: God, freedom, family, life experiences, love (and the possibility of it!) and earning his rightful place in Heaven. This multi-talented brother not only plans to mesmerize the world with his rhymes but he also wants to produce music, score soundtracks and video games, write and publish books of his poetry, join a spoken word circuit and even act. Just Sayin' is ready to rise to the next level, dedicating himself to exploring, developing and sharing his numerous talents with the world. “Having only one life to live and the realization that God punishes those who don’t use their talents, the decision to pursue music and letting everything else fall into place was pretty easy when put into the proper perspective.”

"Just Sayin' is one unique MC that's in a league of his own. His music is most original and relevant in these days and times." ~ Q The Prophet

"One of the most captivating and thought provoking artists on the rise to redefine why Hip Hop music is STILL the voice of the intelligent folks who have a NEED to felt and heard." ~ Incksalonius

You can call it old school, but this New York MC isn't interested in taking any steps backwards. Culling pages from the playbooks of East Coast hip hop artists from the Golden Era, he sprinkles clear and concise rhymes over bopping beats, never wasting a word and rarely giving the listener a chance to stop nodding to the rhythm. While elements of homage to the days of old are certainly in the forefront, his approach to the lyrics is one of ingenuity, originality, and focus. "Why Am I Here" takes a pensive piano loop and wraps it in a solid groove, making room for an open-minded investigation of everyday activities and their larger role in the game of life. "Requisition (Keepin' It Tight)" rides a thick bass drum beat and adds electric guitar, forming a heavy and raw rocker that sounds straight outta '88 (in a good way). The heyday of hip hop is not yet forgotten. Scope the proof right here.
