Baby Keem Making A Statement With Debut Album

This past Friday, emerging rapper Baby Keem released a debut album after much anticipation since his single with Kendrick Lamar. The Melodic Blue is a 16-track project from the Las Vegas native revealing everything about his unique rapping style.

With features from Travis Scott, Don Toliver, and his cousin Kendrick Lamar, Keem pulls out all the stops. On top of his signature voice and flow, Baby Keem has amazing producers in his corner to take his talents to the next level. There is a perfect amount of experimental sounds, mainstream flow, and freshness to almost every track.

Baby Keem

For his official introduction to the big music industry, this is a really solid project. Especially after coming off of the success of “Orange Soda,” this is a great follow-up showing he’s not a one-hit-wonder. The content is also somewhat compelling and there is a wide range of energy from song to song.

The first half of the album is hyped up which definitely gets your attention with songs like “trademark usa” and “range brothers.” Then the second half is a completely different vibe that uncovers Baby Keem’s more venerable side with songs like “scars”.

Baby Keem Is Growing Up

The only thing he is really falling short of is his lyrics. There are no bars that stand out too much and certainly nothing that makes you do a double-take. There are spurts of great writing and flow, but it does get a little repetitive and monotone. From constantly talking about his two phones to the decisive relationships he wants, Baby Keem still has a ways to go. 

The young artist still has plenty of things to work on to take his music from good to great. Overall, this project has great variety and the quality of music is high. It should be interesting to see where he goes from here, and with so many heavy hitters in his corner, the way to go is up.
