Southern rap is ruling the airwave in 2022. 17-year-old Big Bratt from Chattanooga, Tennessee is a new face on the block with a tremendous amount of potential to make it far in her career. Influenced by Southern hip-hop legends like Boosie, MJG, and 8Ball, Big Bratt quickly learned how to make beats and began to share her remixes on social media. With the release of her single “Rich Rollxn,” she began to build up more traction for herself. Recently, the rising talent signed to Metro Boomin (Boominati) and 21 Savage (Slaughter Gang). “When God closed one door he opened 2 even bigger ones.” Bratt replied when asked about signing with some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop today. Last week, Big Bratt shared her latest single “Hope.” Directed by Oneshotskott, the up-and-coming artist celebrated her signing alongside Metro Boomin, 21 Savage, family, and friends.

Lil Unky- Hard 2 Sleep

By Tobbylola // 28 Nov 2022

A new artist I have fallen in love with over the weekend is Lil Unky hailing from Atlanta, Georgia. His latest project “Hard 2 Sleep,” is an incredible body of work and I’m very excited to share him with our audience. The rising talent uses his smooth melodic voice to tell a story through his music. The track list features 11 singles with 2 features from Chicago Rapper G Herbo and Problem Child 5. My personal favorites are “Sorry,” “Monster,” and “Heart Cold.” When listening to the Atlanta native, I find myself having an emotional connection to his music due to how raw and authentic he is. “It’s been Hard 2 Sleep for me.. really means a lot. Just coming from where I come from, was always hard. Growing up I lost friends early to violence. Then I lost more. A lot of close friends and family changed. The people who I thought were there for me left. That showed me a lot. But I kept pushing. The work ethic I knew I had to put in wouldn’t allow me to sleep so that’s why I called this project Hard 2 Sleep.” With co-signs from 21 Savage, G Herbo, Lil Gotit, Mike Wil …

Rich Homie Quan Presents His New Album “Family & Mula – Reloaded”

By Tobbylola // 28 Nov 2022

If you know anything about the music scene in Atlanta, it’s that many new sounds were created in the thriving city over the years. Rich Homie Quan, also known as Dequantes Lamar, emerged on the scene in 2013 and developed a sound that would inspire artists for generations to come. Throughout his career, Quan has been nominated for Best New Artist and Rookie of the Year from BET, earned a spot on the 2014 XXL freshman class list, and went double platinum independently. While the platinum-selling rapper reached many milestones over the years, he is ready to reinvent himself after taking some time off to focus on what matters most. To celebrate his 33rd birthday, Rich Homie Quan released a new body of work titled Family & Mula, which features eight songs and a single feature from NoCap. This project gave listeners a glimpse of what Quan created during his downtime and how his music has changed due to fatherhood.   This month, I had the opportunity to speak with the Atlanta legend about the legacy he has built and what we can expect to come. Check out our interview below. Lyrical Lemonade: What was it like being from Atlanta in 2011 …

Neek – “Toyota Tales”

By Tobbylola // 25 Nov 2022

Neek by name and unique by nature, the Houston-raised rapper has been making significant waves since relocating to LA. Now dropping his latest track titled “Toyota Tales,” he is truly marching towards the inevitability of a successful career in the music industry. After appearing on the NBA 2k22 soundtrack, his future appears to be even brighter as the single is set to expand his growing legion of fans. Accompanied by an extraordinary video that captures the journey he has been on, “Toyota Tales” is the perfect example of when an artist believes in themselves and constantly rises to the challenge. The son of a Nigerian DJ father, that melodic heritage is on full display as Neek delivers a laidback flow and then rises to the vocal challenge as the track requires. “This record was inspired by real-life events,” Neek says. “My first car was a 1996 Toyota Camry, then my 2nd was a 2006 Camry. To me, my Toyota’s were a symbol of both struggle and strength. It was a significant piece of my journey that I embraced then and still do to this day. This record is for the ones who can relate.” Neek understands his responsibility to engage the …

21 Lil Harold Unleashes New Single & Music Video “Damn” Featuring G Herbo

By Tobbylola // 22 Nov 2022

Fast-rising artist 21 Lil Harold is on a hot streak in his career. The Slaughter Gang member is still on a high from releasing his critically acclaimed LARRY project which debuted during the summer months. The project features memorable collaborations from Latto, Offset, G Herbo, and Slimelife Shawty. Harold’s signature sound is unlike any other artist I have come across. By using his life experiences to fuel his music, it’s no wonder why Hip-Hop superstar 21 Savage took him under his wing. Earlier this month, Harold released “Robbin Season,” the first of three singles for his upcoming album scheduled for 2023. However, his second single “Damn,” featuring G-Herbo, is a must-have on your playlist this week. This record displayed a more vulnerable side to the Atlanta artist as he revisits childhood trauma and seeks a path to redemption. By recruiting G Herbo, both rappers united to create an undeniable banger.  “Damn, I miss Larry though (That’s my dawg)/I wish he had it on, he could’ve killed that ho’ (Huh?)/He ain’t diе over no beef or no smoke though (What the f*ck?)/You can’t put ‘еm in no weed and make no jokes, ho’ (What the f*ck?)” 21 Lil Harold is next …

Since the very first time I heard Lola Brooke’s voice, I knew she was a special gem.

By Tobbylola // 17 Nov 2022

It’s been long overdue for me to feature wolfacejoeyy on Lyrical Lemonade again. Joeyy has had a great year since the release of his viral single “shake it.” His upbeat dance track produced by whereis22, generated over 50,000 streams on Tik-Tok. The energetic drill-beat-driven song has the power to instantly change the dynamic of any room. Joeyy has been on my radar ever since and the rising talent has shown no signs of letting up. Recently, the 19-year-old artist shared two new singles, “nobodyelse” and “soho.” Each track I hear from Joey automatically puts me in good spirits. His smooth melodic voice is irresistible, and you can feel his aura through your headphones. Joeyy might be a new contender on the block but he earned his spot as a face to remember this year. “I am very grateful for where I am right now. Compared to a year ago or two I’ve been able to do cool ass sh*t because of my supporters (the team lol). This year was really crazy to be honest.” Joeyy revealed. “I’ve had to balance school, work and music all at the same time with 100 times more pressure and somehow I’ve been able to …
