Kendrick Lamar Drops First Verse of 2021 for Baby Keem’s “Family Ties”

||, |,

Kendrick Lamar is back, folks. If you missed the news last week, he officially announced his last album with Top Dawg Entertainment, and said he would see us soon. Today, he hops on sharply rising rapper Baby Keem‘s “Family Ties” to deliver a scorching hot guest verse. The title of this track is very appropriate, considering Baby Keem is Kendrick Lamar’s little cousin. In fact, the cover art even shows a family photo which includes both of them—a very young Baby Keem and a teenage Kendrick.

This track is as dynamic as it gets for a four minute track. There’s at least three beat switches, with K-Dot coming in at the end to deliver one of the hardest guest verses we’ve heard from him ever. At the end of the track, the relatives go toe to toe and trade off bars.

Considering how amazing this new track is, we were equally blown away with how equally fire the music video is. You can go ahead and check it out below. Enjoy the ride!
