Download Family Ties Mp3 By Baby Keem Feat. Kendrick Lamar
American rapper, songwriter, and record producer, Hykeem Jamaal Carter Jr., professionally known as Baby Keem, to release new single ‘Family Ties’ featuring an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer, Kendrick Lamar Duckworth this week.
Until last week, there was really no indication of when Kendrick was going to release new music due to his deathly silence, but then his statement came and tonight we have a treat. Baby Keem releases his new single ‘family ties’ which features the Compton rapper. The last time we heard a Kendrick feature (other than on Busta Rhymes‘ album which was old) was back in the summer of 2019.
The August 2021 single, “family ties,” finds cousins Baby Keem and Kendrick Lamar uniting for their first official collaboration after months of partnering under the pgLang imprint. Originally titled “Jump 2,” the song was previewed back in March 2020 within the video teaser introducing pgLang; Baby Keem being the first artist partnering with Kendrick and Dave Free’s production company.
This song was originally called ‘Jump 2’ and the main portion of the beat was actually Roddy Ricch’s ‘The Box’ playing backwards, but the final version is different. Some of you might also know that another Keem and Kendrick collaboration called ‘Vent’ was uploaded then deleted on Keem’s SoundCloud a couple of weeks ago, so maybe we can expect that soon too.
This is one of Kendrick Lamar’s very few musical appearances since the 2018 Black Panther movie soundtrack and is the first showcase of his presumed alter ego, Oklama, introduced a week before the song’s release with a mysterious website. On August 23, 2021, Keem announced the release of the single by posting a family picture of the two cousins, paying homage to the cover of Kendrick’s acclaimed 2012 debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city.
When pgLang was first announced, people were confused and thought it was the start of a rollout for a Kendrick Lamar album or a collaboration album with Baby Keem. When the two spoke to i-D Mag, it was confirmed that both of their albums were supposed to drop last year but were likely delayed due to the pandemic.
A few days ago, Kendrick Lamar broke his silence by posting a message to people, giving us an update on how his life was going. He revealed that his next album was out soon and was going to be his final one on TDE. Many were surprised, especially after Kendrick’s video last year of him denying he was leaving the label.
We’ve been in a Kendrick Lamar drought these last few years. Few features, little news. But last week Lamar returned with a note which said that he’s not ready to drop his new album but that he has indeed been working on it. He also said that his upcoming album would be his last with his long-time label TDE. So there’s no new Kendrick Lamar music of his own on the immediate horizon, but he has come out of hiding for his cousin Baby Keem. Today, Baby Keem is releasing a new single called “Family Ties” that features a guest spot from Lamar.
Now, an announcement has been made about music. Baby Keem has revealed that this week, he’s releasing his new single ‘Family Ties’. It’s the song from the original pgLang announcement video that was originally called ‘Jump 2’ and sampled ‘The Box’ by Roddy Ricch, although that has changed for the final version.
The artwork for the single is an old family picture with everyone’s faces blacked out good kid, m.A.A.d city style, except Keem and Kendrick.
Baby Keem is best known for his single “Orange Soda” from his second mixtape Die for My Bitch, which peaked at number 98 on the Billboard Hot 100. Baby Keem was included on XXL’s 2020 Freshman Class. Since Kendrick Lamar mainstream debut in 2012 with Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, Lamar has been regarded as one of the most influential rappers of his generation.
- I was seein’ double in the projects
- Mad at myself when I put it to the side
- Mama had to cater for the coupe
- That we rode after school on the way to Popeyes
- And niggas wanna play both sides
- It’s a red dot, don’t get on the wrong red eye
- It’s a headshot, Damien Kane, Woo
