“Pink Panties” by Baby Keem

This song, being the second track on The Melodic Blue, more properly sets the tone for the rest of the album than the track that preceded it. That is to say that Pink Panties, underneath all of the NSFW lingo, is actually romantic in nature, or we can more accurately say a sex song. And there really isn’t a whole lot to analyze here per se. The rapper is addressing a lady who, based on the chorus, apparently belongs to another dude. And he’s presenting himself as… who knows.

The mistake we’ve made is that we analyzed songs found later on the playlist of Melodic Blue before getting around to this one. For on subsequent tracks like Lost Souls and Cocoa, Baby Keem comes off as a sexual being alright but one in control of his lust, if you will. However, this time around, let’s just say he’s letting it all hang out more in traditional rap style, which he also does later on via tunes like Range Brothers

But in any event, it’s almost like he’s portraying different characters on respective songs. But perhaps such is actually the point. Tunes such as Pink Panties may be considered the Hulk tracks, while others, like the pair mentioned above, are more Bruce Banner-ish. In other words, this is how Baby Keem sounds when the gangsta side of his sexuality takes over.
