Behind The Boards: Key Wane

Detroit Born & Raised.

Chase Ichiki // REVOLT TV

Hailing from Detroit, MI at just 26 years old Key Wane has navigated his way through the music industry while creating his own signature sound. He’s best known for his work with Big Sean ("IDFWU", "1st Quarter", "Play No Games") who he first met at the age of 12, but has since worked with Beyoncé ("Partition" & "Mine"), Jazmine Sullivan ("Let It Burn"), and Meek Mill ("Amen").

Already multi Grammy award nominated, Key Wane is not slowing down anytime soon with two placements ("Jump Out The Window" and "Halfway Off The Balcony") on Big Sean’s latest album, I Decided, due out February 3rd. Wane stopped by REVOLT Studios and talked about how he first started with just a piano from JCPenney, his early memories of growing up with Big Sean, and how he chops his samples.
