Lights On – [Izzy Bizu]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

A London based artist that goes by Izzy Bizu is making her Lyrical Lemonade debut tonight with her brand new offering titled “Lights On”! This is an uptempo, honest and glossy track that I really enjoyed, and it is the lead track on her EP Glita which is set to drop on the 12th of April so keep an eye out for that. The idea of the record is to do what you think is right for yourself as opposed to listening to others advice too much, it’s a good listen and I believe you will enjoy it as much as I did. Stream this brand new joint via Spotify below and if you like what you hear be sure to follow her on Twitter here.

Rags – [Moddy] Ft. [Marcus Nogood]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

This evening I am happy to bring our readers a dope new music video for the track called “Rags” by Moddy and Marcus Nogood! If you are a frequent visitor on our platform then the odds are that you know about Marcus Nogood by now considering we have posted him dozens of times, but I wasn’t too familiar with Moddy, but after watching this video multiple times through I instantly became a fan. These two whipped up a dope track that is impossible to not nod your head to, I hope that we get to see these two emcees connect more in the future, but for now press play below! Shot by @JoeMcGrvth

F.T.S.I.O. – [Han Vader]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

One of the most energetic young acts that I have had on my radar is Han Vader, who is making his way back on our lemon filled pages with his brand new record titled “F.T.S.I.O.”. Han Vader always approaches his music with a light hearted and playful energy which usually translates directly into his music, be bounces from one subject to another at rapid pace, one second rapping about Dragon Tales and the next speaking about his deaf uncle. It’s most likely not the first time you have heard about Han Vader on our site but one thing’s for sure, it will not be the last, press play below!

Cosplay – [Chason] Ft. [The Mind]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

A Chicago native that goes by Chason is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut today with his brand new offering titled “Cosplay” featuring theMind. I recently was recommended Chason’s music from a good friend of mine so I thought why not check him out, and I was instantly blown away at the final outcome of the song. When I saw the credit from fellow Chicagoan theMind I was intrigued at how this one was going to sound and these two really blended together in perfect harmony, making an absolutely gorgeous sounding track in the process. I am sure it won’t be too long before you hear Chason’s music on our website again, but for now get comfortable with this new joint below.

Don’t Know Love – [Jarrett Rad]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

Jarrett Rad is one of the rising emcees out of the city who I have been covering here on Lyrical Lemonade for some years now, and today he is making his way back to our pages with his brand new offering titled “Don’t Know Love”. This song is a softer and slower pace track compared to a majority of his music, it has a more heartfelt approach where he croons about a prior relationship for a great chunk of the song, mixing in a couple of fire verses here and there. Get in tune with one of Chicago’s many underground talents by pressing play below.

She Said – [Leebo]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

An artist that goes by the moniker of Leebo is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut this afternoon with his brand new offering titled “She Said”. I first came across this record while scrolling through Soundcloud and it caught my eye because of the fire artwork, but then once I dove into the music I was shocked at how good it sounded, it’s easily one of the best songs you will hear today. Do yourself a huge favor and check out this brand new tune below, and if you like what you hear be sure to give him a follow on IG here!

We Grown Now – [MC Tree]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

Chicago OG MC Tree has been teasing the release of his project for a minute on social media and it has had me excited to here it, and just a couple of days ago he blessed us with the full length tape titled “We Grown Now”. There is a total of thirteen records on this project and after listening through it a few times my already high expectations were not only met, but well past exceeded. A couple of my favorite records from this body of work include “All I’ll Ever Be” due to the soulful production mixed with his signature flows, and my other favorite included here is the heartfelt “Letter To My Sons”. When 2019 is said and done with this will be one of the more memorable projects to come out of Chicago, be expecting to see it on our Top 50 Chicago Projects list at the end of the year, but until we reach that point get in tune with the tape by pressing play below.

Bandit – [Komla]

By Elliot Montanez // 25 Mar 2019

Komla is one of the beset upcoming emcees out of the city, and just a day ago he released a brand new jam titled “Bandit”. I have had this record bumping at full volume here at the office for at least twenty minutes straight, getting lost in Komla’s rapid flows that are jam packed with witty bars that might take you a few listens through to catch. He joined forces with producer NIKAISUCKS who blessed him with this low-fi sounding & bass knocking instrumental and together they made a record that’s sure to be in my rotation for months to come. Go ahead and stream this new joint below and if you like it be sure to give Komla a follow on Twitter here.
