Keyboard Kid lives his life of music exactly to that based definition, and Lil B was one of his biggest influences although he considers himself a fan first. Keyboard Kid’s name and notoriety is now growing in the based and hip-hop community as an artist and producer since having linked up with Lil B and never looking back. Now, outside of Lil B’s records, Keyboard is also putting in work as a producer and artist on his own and is making a lot of noise.

It all started with the MySpace days of internet networking, when Keyboard originally linked up with Lil B in late 2005. Lil B was at the height of success with his original rap group The Pack at the time, but after developing a relationship with Lil B online they vibed on a music tip, and that’s when Lil B asked Keyboard Kid to help build BasedWorld.
