Baby Keem Lives the "Hooligan" Lifestyle in New Visual
Since releasing his heavily acclaimed album Die For My Bitch in 2019, Baby Keem has seen his profile rise rapidly, earning a spot on the 2020 XXL Freshman List and becoming a new favorite of many. With the support of Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free’s pgLang, Keem is now back, treating fans to a two pack of heaters entitled “Hooligan” and “Sons & Critics.”
On “Hooligan,” Kendrick’s influence on Keem is readily apparent, as Keem rips off similar rapid, high pitched flows, but with a more fun, carefree lyrical approach. Keem brings an infectious boastful energy to the song, declaring himself the “youngest nigga running shit,” who is “above all the buffoons” and “above all the rules.”
“Hooligan’s” instrumental adds an interesting layer to the song with its entrancing piano and guitar lines and catchy whistling, reminiscent of recent songs like Lil Baby and 42 Dugg’s “We Paid.” The track comes complete with a minimalist visual depicting a seemingly detached Keem kicking it in the crib with his girl and taking a moment to walk their strikingly large black pitbull.
