Public – [Ka$hdami]

By Elliot Montanez // 17 Sep 2021

There is a movement going on in hip-hop right now and the young superstar Ka$hdami is one of the artists at the forefront of it, and today dami is back on our website with his new visual for “Public”. This music video is a dark and eerie one that will capture your attention with all of the effects that video director @1karlwithaK, and it finds Dami absolutely floating over the instrumental. I hope that every hip-hop fan is starting to pay close attention to Ka$hdami if they haven’t already started because it’s only a matter of time before he is one of the most notable artists in the game. Take some time out of your Friday to watch this brand new music video below! Produced by: 1kSensei, Cxdy, & Fwthis1will

Scratchin Off – [Cdot Honcho]

By Elliot Montanez // 15 Sep 2021

Cdot Honcho is a certified Chicago legend in my book, he’s been consistently putting out heat for years now, and today he is back with his brand new music video for “Scratchin Off”. Cdot Honcho has one of the best flows out of the city for my money, he always floats over instrumentals with seemingly no effort, he just makes it look easy. That was very apparent on this new joint, as Cdot impressed as he always seems to do, making for yet another great offering. Go ahead and get in tune with Cdot’s latest release by pressing play below!

bishop ford – [femdot]

By Elliot Montanez // 14 Sep 2021

It’s no secret that Chicago native femdot is like family to all of us here at Lyrical Lemonade, and it’s also common knowledge that he is one of the best spitters that the city has to offer, and today he is back with a brand new visual for “Bishop Ford”. This is a record that fem released a couple of months ago as a part of his BOGO 2-packs, and it’s been well received by fans this far, so you just knew a music video was going to follow. Fem connected with fellow Chicagoan Jon Levert who directed this visual, and if you know anything about their prior work together, they just seem to understand the assignment every single time that they connect. The rest of 2021 is going to prove to be pivotal for fem, his fans are ready for more new music and it seems to be on the horizon. produced by gold haze x blvvk

1984 – [Glaive]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Aug 2021

Glaive is only a teenager and has somehow become the face of a budding new sound of music, what he has accomplished so far in his career is unbelievable, and he’s only just beginning. Today, the Hendersonville native is back with his brand new music video for “1984”. Glaive connected with Lyrical Lemonade founder Cole Bennett who shot and directed this visual, and in my opinion, they did a great job and this is only the start of a long-lasting work relationship. I am so proud of Glaive and I am eager to continue to watch him on his journey, he will be a superstar sooner than later. Watch this brand-new music video below!
