By Elliot Montanez // 19 Nov 2018

An artist named Cartier Shamar is making his first appearance on our website this afternoon with his brand new tune titled “Ten Toes/Imma Ball”. Once the instrumental started I wasn’t sure what direction he was about to take this one, but once the snare and bass kicked it thirty seconds later and he jumped on the beat with his sing/rap combo I was more than impressed. Listen to this brand new song below and if you like it be sure to keep up with Cartier by giving him a follow on Twitter here!

LL Presents: The Quin Nfn Q&A

By Elliot Montanez // 19 Nov 2018

When the Lyrical team was out at SXSW this past year we met an Austin, Texas based artist named Quin Nfn at the interview with Nardwuar, and he has become a favorite of ours rather quickly since that point. He has been releasing some good music for a minute now and his new project has been doing very well, he is still a teenager at this point so you can only image the growth that we are about to witness, I predict in a few years he is one of the biggest rappers in his state. Take a few minutes below to check out the new Q&A we did featuring Quin Nfn, and be sure to give Quin a follow on Twitter here to keep up with his future releases!     EM: Before we dive into the questions, give a brief description of yourself for our readers who may not be familiar with you.

A collaboration I would have never thought about was Moneybagg Yo and J. Cole in the booth together let alone the same video for their trap banger, “Say Nah.” Moneybagg Yo has recently released his first album, RESET, which alone is a packed with deadly bars from the Memphis, Tennessee native as well as equally lethal features from Future, Kodak Black, YG and of course J. Cole. From the laundry mat to the local park Moneybagg Yo can be seen in his new video for “Say Nah” giving back and flexing at the same time as money falls wherever he walks. Draped in red flannel print the two MC’s stand towering next to one another as Cole delivers another firey feature. Watch the new video from Moneybagg Yo featuring the Dreamville label-head, J. Cole below and tell us what you think of the new visuals and Moneybagg’s new album in the comment section!

2 Minute Drills – [ALLBLACK] & [Kenny Beats]

By Chuck Ramos // 19 Nov 2018

Oakland native, ALLBLACK and exploding new producer, Kenny Beats have finally shared their collaborative effort, 2 Minute Drills. The combination of the West Coast rapper’s bars and Kenny Beats’ dynamic production equal a 17-minute success. The football theme of the album is present throughout the project both lyrically, from ALLBLACK who uses a series of metaphors relating to the game, as well as Kenny’s ability to create a set of production that could easily be used as intro music for your favorite gridiron squad. Safe to say anything Kenny Beats touches we are listening to as he manages to blend seamlessly with any artist he works with and ALLBLACK is no exception. Keep a close eye on both, Kenny and ALLBLACK as they continue to deliver on every track they are a part of, whether together or separate. Listen to the new album from ALLBLACK and Kenny Beats below and tell us what you think of the project and what your stand out tracks are in the comment section!

Acrylic – [Leikeli47]

By Chuck Ramos // 19 Nov 2018

New York City’s, Leikeli47 has released her highly anticipated sophomore album, Acrylic. The ski mask wearing MC caught a lot of attention during her first surfacing for her 2017 debut, Wash & Set which showcased the mysterious rappers ability to effortlessly navigate complex production with seemingly no fatigue. For those who do not know, Leikeli is way more than just rapper but a singer as well providing her own hooks and harmonies to her songs finds you stumped in her ability to casually swing from rapping to singing. Her newest offering, Acrylic, is actually the third installment of her rollout that featured three separate EP’s that focused on the theme of the nail salon. In true Leikeli fashion, her new album touches on the wide array of textures Leikeli is able to tap into.
