By Kiani Belgrave

Baby Keem has released his new single “Family Ties" featuring Kendrick Lamar. The song was premiered with a music video directed by pgLang’s Dave Free, starring Keem, Lamar, and Normani. 

The track was produced by Keem, Cardo, Outtatown, Roseliah, Jasper Harris, Frankie Bash, and Deats. 

Kendrick Lamar was credited as Oklama in the video’s credits, the name he used in his open letter announcing his final album with TDE. Lamar takes aim at all rappers, advising them not to drop in 2021 because his album is taking over, rapping, “2021 I ain’t taking no prisoners--Motherfuck that album, fuck that single, burn that hard drive.” Kendrick’s alter ego, Oklama doesn’t hold back. 

Keem is coming off a long run of consecutive singles. Releasing the songs “Hooligan,” “Sons & Critics Freestyle,” “No Sense,” and “Durag Activity,” featuring Travis Scott, all in promotion for his upcoming album The Melodic Blue.
