Keyon Harrold – The Mugician

I never heard trumpeter Keyon Harrold’s name until Common mentioned his name on his White House Tiny Desk Concert October 2016. I began to research and found out Keyon was working on an album and one year later, I’m listening to The Mugician. This is not his first album, the appropriately titled..
