A few months ago this writer came across a viral tweet “Keemy Casanova,” the video by (and alter-ego of) Jackson, Mississippi-reared musician Akeem Ali. Equal parts hilarious (Keemy is a combination of Dolemite, Suga Free and Camp Lo) and extremely dope, the song has been in this writer’s regular rotation since.
Ali Keemy has revealed its follow-up, “Shugga,” the next single from his forthcoming project slated for release sometime in 2021. Like its predecessor, the matching visual continues the 70s-inspired feels while Akeem drops colorful mack-tastic bar after bar.
Yep, I’m a full-blown fan of his music now.
