Jams TFC: The Lemonade Stand Interview

By Elliot Montanez // 19 Oct 2021

Jams TFC is an artist out of Chicago who I first met a couple of years ago at a concert, and I have been a supporter of his ever since! I recently brought Jams by the office for an interview where we spoke about plenty of subjects such as his latest album Made With Love, growing up in Chicago, the breakfast themes within his project, working with the legendary producer Jerm, touring with KOTA The Friend, his musical inspirations, his passion for comic books, the impact his mother + father had on him, Chicago’s music scene, and much more.

Who Want Smoke Remix – [Nardo Wick] x [Lil Durk] x [21 Savage] x [G Herbo]

By Elliot Montanez // 8 Oct 2021

Nardo Wick has been a rising star in the music industry for a minute now, but I feel like he’s about to really blow up with the help of his brand new music video for “Who Want Smoke Remix” featuring Lil Durk, 21 Savage, and G Herbo. Just by looking at this lineup of superstars talents on the same song, you can assume that it’s going to be a hit, but trust me when I say that it will exceed your expectations. Lyrical Lemonade CEO + video director Cole Bennett did his f*cking thing on this one, this is one of the most action-packed LL videos that I have ever seen, it’s definitely one of my favorite of recent memory. This video just has the feel of an instant LL classic, don’t take my word for it though, watch it below! produced by emkay

Why – [Jaas]

By Elliot Montanez // 7 Oct 2021

Sometimes when I sit and really think about all of the new budding talent coming out of Chicago, it’s so overwhelming, there’s a neverending pool of talent here and Chicago native Jaas is starting to stand out from the bunch. I have been familiar with Jaas for a couple of years now, but it seems as if she is gearing up to drop a project soon, cause 2021 has seen her be more active musically than ever. She connected with music video director Moon Pyinyar who shot a cinematic visual that finds Jaas in a few different nature settings, singing her heart out about a past relationship. Jaas has some fantastic vocals and they shined on this track, she has a bright future ahead of her, so you might as well get familiar with her now! Produced by @prodxvzn

Kiraly Payne is somebody who I personally have been familiar with for the better half of a decade now, he’s been a part of the Chicago scene for a minute now, and I recently brought him by the Lyrical Lemonade office for a new interview on The Lemonade Stand! This was a great conversation where I spoke to Kiraly about plenty of topics including his appearance in our old LL cypher videos, being a part of the Outer(net) crew, his recent appearance with Saba in LA, his upcoming music releases, growing up in the Chicagoland area, attending Plainfield East + Plainfield North High Schools, his skills at the game Tekken and more. Get familiar with one of Chicago’s most talented spitters by watching this new interview!

347aidan: The Lemonade Stand Interview

By Elliot Montanez // 4 Oct 2021

347aidan is an artist out of Canada who I first discovered when his record “Dancing In My Room” started to blow up, and I’ve been a big supporter of his ever since. I asked Aidan about several interesting subjects such as growing up in Canada, the moment “Dancing In My Room” started to blow up, where the ‘347’ in his name comes from, working with Kenny Beats, wanting to work with $NOT, how his music was received by the people he grew up with, creating characters in his music, where he sees himself in five years, his future releases and much more. This was one of my most memorable interviews to date, Aidan is a great kid with a bright future ahead of him, get to know him a little better by pressing play below!
