There’s always something so surprising whenever you find out about somebody who has become relatively successful at such a young age. If you look at the music industry, you will often see a lot of younger people—see: late teens to early twenties—amass followings for their music. There’s always going to be a younger generation of artists that will make their way into the music industry. Baby Keem is no different. It’s no wonder that he has reached this net worth at a young age.
While I was researching about Baby Keem, I was surprised to see that he is rumored to be a cousin of rapper Kendrick Lamar. That rumor came about because he had some songwriting and producing credits on the album that Kendrick made for the Marvel Studios film “Black Panther.” Keem mentioned in an interview with Complex that being surrounded by a lot of talented people, especially those who rapped, in his family lead to making music of his own. He wrote and released a song online when he was 15. But it seems like he doesn’t want people to find it. He had a very supportive family, including a grandmother who took care of him until he was eight. And was the first one to buy him a microphone.
A lot of artists nowadays have been getting a lot of attention on social media, especially on TikTok. Because a lot of videos tend to use music to punctuate a video or as the inspiration for a new dance challenge, one of Baby Keem’s songs have received a lot of attention on the platform. The song that went viral was “Orange Soda” from his second mixtape “Die for My Bitch.” TikTok has been one of the places that record labels seem to be putting their attention to. So much so that they’ve often asked their artists to create music that’s meant to be viral on the platform.
Baby Keem has had a lot of success as a rapper. He earned a Grammy for Best Rap Performance for his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar called “Family Ties.” The music video for it also won Video of the Year at the BET Awards. His most recent album “The Melodic Blue” was certified gold, while a bunch of his songs have also been certified, including platinum for “Orange Soda”, gold for “Lost Souls,” “Durag Activity” and “Trademark USA,” and two-times platinum for “Family Ties.”
There isn’t really too much information about Baby Keem’s personal life. In an interview, he mentioned that Baby Keem and Keem are two very different individuals. Baby Keem is more out there, while Keem is a bit more low-key and keeps a lot to himself. He doesn’t really want to put that much about him out there. Not yet, at least. So there is a certain mystique to his persona that people seem to enjoy.
Because he has been a fairly successful artist in the four years since he started release music professionally, it’s no wonder that Baby Keem has an estimated net worth of $1,000,000. It’s not a bad amount for a relatively short amount of time. Because Baby Keem isn’t as active at posting about his personal life on any social media platform, you wouldn’t really see that many photos of him flaunting his wealth around. He could absolutely do that if he chose to.
Becoming a musician is hard. You should never really expect to become successful in it overnight. If people enjoy the music that you make, it’s likely that they’ll recommend it to people they hang out with. Success does take time. And you never could expect how you’ll find that success. Maybe it’ll get used for a commercial. Or people will use it for a TikTok video. It’s hard to tell where the success will find you. But sometimes the success will be fleeting.
Even if you don’t find immediate success, you should try again. Maybe the timing’s not right. But you will get where you want to go if you put in the effort. Hard work is still part of the equation of becoming successful. You can never find success without it. Just keep going at it.
