The Melodic Blue is here.
Hot on the heels of his Kendrick Lamar-assisted single “family ties,” Baby Keem unleashes his major-label debut album. On his first project since 2019’s Die for My Bitch, the 20-year-old rapper enlists his cousin K-Dot for a trio of tracks including “vent” and “range brothers,” some of which was inspired by their made-up languages.
“me and dot created four new languages bro. rap was boring. so we start making new languages,” Keem tweeted.

The 16-track album, released via Kendrick’s pgLang label in partnership with Columbia Records, also features the Travis Scott-assisted “durag activity” and “cocoa” with Don Toliver, with contributions from Rosalía and James Blake.
“An album is something that’s really cohesive, in either sound or topic. And for me, that’s how I kind of see me making an album,” Keem told Apple Music. “Die for My Bitch was, like, definitely, it was all over the place. I just want people to hear what I can do.”
