I need some help with word low-key

At first: I'm new here and I'm not sure if I choose right category, sorry if not. And sorry for mistakes, I still learn.
Anyway, how's in title, I need some help with word low-key. I see it all time in some comments, lyrics but I have no idea what does it mean. I checked on some urban's dictionares, but I feel like how they explain that on web has totally nothing to what I see. People use it in diffirents situations for me, I can't even to guess from context. If you know, write me please, that makes me tired when I don't understand something in English.
Oh, and sorry for all these commas in my post. I know that I put them too much, but my language is crazy with that and we gotta seperate every verb by comma.
