Portrait of SKsTheName
Stanley S. Keets, Jr., known simply as SK, was born February 4, 1983, raised on the east side of Indianapolis, IN and is the youngest of six children. SK has always had a passion for music going back to his days as a child with fond memories of his mother’s house parties and family gatherings. SK has been influenced by artists of all genres but is mostly inspired by R&B music. This has allowed SK to remain true to himself and not imitate hip-hop artists that are in the industry. SK first began to rap at the age of 16 with the Raww Dawgz, with his cousin Trajik and friend, Conte'. The Raww Dawgz dropped their debut album "Murderous Poetry" which gained them a lot of credibility locally just by selling CDs out of backpacks wherever there were people. SK later put the studio on hold, still writing daily, and went off to college majoring in Mechanical Engineering but decided, two years later, to come back home to finish school.
Once SK returned home, still with music in his heart, he set up a studio in his apartment but never distributed any albums because he lacked the confidence to do music alone. During this time, music was used as a way to clear his mind and to stay at ease. SK, now ready to make a career out of his music signed on as an artist under the up and coming label Game Face Entertainment where he would once again be alongside Trajik. Immediately following the signing and thereafter, SK has been in the studio diligently working on new music. The first CD released by SK was a mixtape used as an introduction called “In My Zone” and months later it was followed by the official album, "Inferno", which has been receiving great feedback throughout the city. With the start of 2011, SK decided to depart from Game Face Entertainment but not before leaving behind a farewell project in collaboration with DJ Pimp Cee of the Greatest DJ’s, entitled “End Of The Beginning: The Greatest Edition”.
Leaving Game Face Entertainment was one of the hardest decisions SK had to make but after deep thought processing, SK knew that it was exactly what needed to be done to create his own musical direction. SK has learned the business and has signed himself as a solo artist and as one half of B.F.A.M. with Kriptik under the soon to be released label. With the talent SK possesses, the music will be sure to show his lyrical growth as the time passes. SK has performed amongst the best in his city and is looking forward to perform with the best in all cities. With the path SK is on, it will only be a matter of time before he has touched the minds of the world.
