KEAK DA SNEAK
THATíS MY WORD
SUMDAY

Keak da Sneak has one of the most recognizable voices in rap ó or rather, he would if anyone stopped to recognize him. Since the early í90s, Keakís been grinding away in semi-obscurity, spinning dope yarns on his way to becoming a Bay Area legend. Problem is, heís remained just that: a Bay Area legend. Now, with his single "Hyphie" becoming 2005ís buzzword and surprise underground hit, heís put the spotlight on the Cali rap scene just in time for his finest full-length in years. The gruff, low-voiced Keak cheekily reinterprets pop culture for his own, more devious purposes, telling the ladies to "shake it like a Snapple bottle" and popping and fizzing when you know heís not talkiní Alka-Seltzer. On "Something Serious," however, he stops barking, confessing softly over a tinkling piano, "I got four kids to support . . . I hope I donít go back to slanginí dope." If thereís any justice in this rap game, the only dope things in Keakís future will be reviews.
