She tells VH1, "I don’t give a f–k whether you a size 10, 3, 4, 28 or 30, I give everybody a voice... I walk ahead of the line! Don’t nobody come before me.”
Rapper BK Brasco is a passionate songwriter and rapper, and is known for his work with Timbaland. In 2014, he released his EP, "18th Floor Thompson Hotel Edition." The EP featured appearances from Timbaland, Pusha T, RaVaugn, B Howard, Stacy Barthe, and many more.
Speaking to The Boombox about the EP, Brasco said, "My pops died by the time I was 13. When I was over there, I had started selling drugs in the building. ‘18th Floor’ is just the equivalent to the floors in that building. There were so many different cultures, it was like a gumbo. So the album is gonna be like that where every song is different. Different emotions.”

She graduated from Hampton University in 2008 with a degree in Business Administration and Management, and went on to work for A1 Recordings, Inc.

Keely was born in Detroit, Michigan, and grew up a big Motown fan. She tells Vh1, "Saying you’re a boss isn’t a financial thing, it’s a mentality, it’s how you live your life… respect it.”
