Shareef Keyes is an artist from Staten Island, NY. His sound fuses soul and jazz-funk with contemporary hip hop influences. Check out his new video #macaroniandcheese.
We know what you’re thinking, “WHERE’S THE MEAL?” Well, Millennials, all Shareef Keyes and The Groove have on the menu are chunks of funky-soul sounds with a dash of hip-hop sprinkled on top. “Macaroni and Cheese” featuring the lyrical Mickey Factz. It’s definitely that song that helps you unwind right before dinner, while you are cleaning your house, as the water for your ‘elbows’ are boiling on the stove.
The new video for this amazing track takes us on a musical uber ride through NYC (Shareef hails from Staten Island) and introduces us to a beautiful violinist and even gives you a sneak peek of the camera guy (fun fact: Shareef’s twin brother, SIR). Mickey couldn’t make it to the video shoot but he made sure to make use of his webcam capabilities.
After watching this dope abstract-yet-not-so-abstract visual, you may not leave with the taste of mac&cheese on your taste buds but you’ll definitely see that Sir Shareef has some slick moves and knows his way on the dance floor. You just might also want the dancing machine to take you hat shopping too; Shareef has a nice collection.
Be sure to check out Shareef Keyes and The Groove at their Harlem residency at The Corner Social every Monday night (7pm-9pm) and look out for their upcoming LIVE ALBUM that shall be coming sooner than later.
