Keyon's new album, 'The Mugician' (via Mass Appeal Records/Legacy Recordings) has been lauded for its "expansive, often cinematic soundscapes that are equal parts improvisational jazz, psychedelic hip-hop, ruminative R&B balladry, and pointed social critique" (All Music) and called "a collection of thoughtful and wide-ranging compositions" (Rolling Stone).
