Music has always played an instrumental role in Keiths life. From a young age, Keith knew that music was his calling. Upon graduating from a New Jersey high school in 2006, he decided to pursue his dreams and move to NYC. Keith soon landed an internship at the legendary Violator Management, reporting to Mona Scott and president Chris Lighty. Under their tutelage, Keith learned the intricacies of the music business. In 2009 he moved to UMG. Keith continued learn, grow and prosper working in promotions, A&R, administration and finance. In his current role; A&R at Def Jam Recordings, Mr. Tucker reports to Dion No ID Wilson. As Keith so appropriately puts it, "I feel extremely fortunately to be a part of such an important label, at such an important time in music. I feel like we are making history for a new music business.
