Rap star Kendrick Lamar has something major coming. His cousin and rising rapper Baby Keem went online to share a cryptic message about changing the genre.
Kendrick Lamar’s Cousin Cryptically Hints At Something Big Coming
Keem tweeted out that he and K. Dot had created four languages, although the meaning of this is currently unknown. His debut studio album The Melodic Blue drops tonight, so fans might have to wait until midnight or longer before seeing what’s actually going on. Baby Keem noted how hip-hop was getting boring so him and the family decided to change it up.

Baby Keem’s New Album Drops This Week
The West Coast rapper has some new audio heat dropping, so maybe this will clear up his tweet. This week, the hip-hop artist announced his new The Melodic Blue album arrives this Friday.
BK went to his Instagram page to deliver the massive announcement to fans. His long-awaited studio debut will drop in four days through Warner Records.

Kendrick Lamar Cements Mighty Return
In late August 2021, Keem helped Grammy-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar cement his return to the spotlight. The hip-hop star and elusive Top Dawg Entertainment member came with his cousin in their “family ties” music video.
The must-see visual clocks in at over four minutes in length and has plenty of cinematic galore. Along with the mind-blowing video’s elements, the song itself is just his first official collaboration with Keem.
‘family ties’ is Lamar’s first feature since 2018, and sees Keem and Lamar come together for the first time, notably making it the second-ever artist collaboration in Keem’s public musical output, and his first with Lamar. ‘family ties’ is a high-powered proclamation exploring the meaning of legacy and success, an insight into the relationships and experiences that have both defined and propelled Keem in his journey. The ‘family ties’ video features Keem, Kendrick and Normani and is directed by Dave Free.
The same week, Keem and K. Dot released the video’s mind-blowing trailer.
The visual itself is an absolute must-watch even at just under 20 seconds in length. While fans still had to wait just over 24 hours before hearing and seeing the new visual, the trailer gave an idea of how it sounded – just in reverse.
Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Family Ties’ Dropping Friday
Earlier the same week, Keem went to his Instagram page with just his third active post. The pic is a super throwback shot of himself as a kid and a teenage-looking Lamar. Keem’s teaser could easily be the single’s artwork.
