Album Review: The Melodic Blue by Baby Keem

Very Good, Based on 5 Critics

HipHopDX - 72
Based on rating 3.6/5

Baby Keem feels like an artist who we’re all supposed to like. The Las Vegas rapper’s rise to fame felt overnight, even if he had been releasing short EPs and singles prior to his breakout song “ORANGE SODA.” Keem has all the qualities to become a star. He drops quotables at a rapid pace, he’s a gifted producer, his lines are quirky and memorable as is his squeaky and enigmatic vocal delivery.

Rapper Baby Keem garnered international fame a month ago due to his performance on Kanye West's Praise God. With impossibly high-pitched squeaks and contextless exclamations of "Tame Impala", the verse established Keem as an engaging, funny character who isn't afraid to play with delivery and flow. And so it proves that his debut album The Melodic Blue is a vocally experimental trip through the cutting edge of modern rap music.

Based on rating 6.4/10

Up until recently, Baby Keem chose to be an enigma. His voice on the mic is distinctive, a high-pitched whine well-suited to jokes and boasts, but Hykeem Carter, the man behind the persona, often receded from view. Personal details in his music and interviews were scarce, and Keem outright hid his face until he began promoting his 2018 project, The Sound of Bad Habit.

Opinion: Very Good

Baby Keem has been an intangible artist up until now. Granted, he's got a breakthrough mixtape (2019's 'DIE FOR MY BITCH') and loads of projects buried in his past, but it's been a mystery as to why he has such strong affiliation with Kendrick Lamar's new PGLang label. What started as rumours and never escaped Keem turned out to be true - he is the cousin of Lamar, and therefore adopts all the pressures that come with being related to the rapper.
