Kendrick Lamar's cousin isn't new to the rap scene, but after dropping his debut album last fall, Baby Keem very well may hit the same "hip-hop's Bob Dylan" status that Kenny did.
If you need proof, walk by Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Wednesday when he headlines the 2,000-capacity outdoor venue.
Keem turned 21 years old in October, and just embarked on his first full-fledged U.S. tour, which kicked off in Cincinnati. Keem (who appears on Kanye's Donda 2) is making his debut Tampa Bay area appearance next week, and not counting resale tickets, the show is sold out—to the surprise of nobody.
If you can't make St. Pete on a Wednesday night, he'll be in Orlando the night before, and Ft. Lauderdale on Thursday.
