Cousins Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem have teamed up once again on the energetic track “Range Brothers” off of Baby Keem’s new album The Melodic Blue which is out now. In addition to the bars that Kendrick Lamar spits on “Range Brothers,” he also takes part in songs “Vent” and “Family Ties” on the album.
On a combined verse between the two, Kendrick Lamar chimes in with his own two sense before unveiling a new persona on the line, “Top of the mornin’,” which repeats a total of seven times on two separate occasions. The monotone line has become a meme on TikTok already with fans using the song’s audio to jokingly tip their hat to the camera repeatedly along with the repetitive almost off beat line.
Along with the anticipated lyrical additions of Kendrick Lamar, Baby Keem’s new album also features the likes of Travis Scott, Don Toliver and Rosalía.
Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem’s previous collaboration on the single “Family Ties” did not disappoint as Kendrick Lamar made his long awaited return to music after an extended musical drought. “Smoking on top fives” and exhibiting a Hulk Hogan like accent with the comedic utilization of the word “brother,” were among some of the many highlights present.
Kendrick Lamar previously announced that his upcoming album is the last he will release under the Top Dawg Entertainment label. The 34-year-old Compton native made the announcement in late August on a newly launched website called Oklama. As of now, Lamar’s upcoming fifth studio album is left unnamed.
