Shot With Me – [Moe Young] ft. [lilspirit]

By Danny Adams // 15 Jan 2021

Few artists are actually able to capture the attention of any member of Internet Money, so that’s why whenever I heard of a talent working with the hit factory out on the West Coast, I need to listen up. Moe Young is a talent I have consistently heard about, but I have yet to truly listen in to consistently in all honesty. There’s no rhyme or reason as to why because everything I’ve ever heard has been absolutely magnificent, so I realize that I need to finally cut the excuses and give this man the respect and attention he has worked so hard for. Back at the beginning of Summer, Moe hit up the IM family and trusted that they’d not only help him build another hit, but they’d also give him some assistance on the lyrical front with lilspirit, and “Shot With Me” was created. Considering this was a simple SoundCloud upload, it might not have been expected to take off quite as it did, and luckily, Moe decided to bring this hit to life in the form of an outstanding music video directed by JakeTheShooter. As the song begins to play, the camera pans down from the sky …

A Lot – [Night Lovell] [Lindasson] & [FTG Reggie]

By Danny Adams // 14 Jan 2021

One of my favorite things about music is the fact that even in the same genre, there are always artists pushing the boundaries and going above and beyond to try and break through barriers that a quote on quote “genre” might attempt to place them in. As for Night Lovell, he has had this unbelievable ability to bring a new sound to Rap music, and while it might be somewhat dark or macabre during certain moments, it’s these themes that consistently repeat themselves that have always made me such a huge fan. Most recently, he teamed up with fellow Ottawa spitters Lindasson and FTG Reggie, and although I was previously uninformed about these two artists, I now know that I need to listen up much more intently after listening to the trio’s brand-new song “A Lot”. Produced by CR and 10kkrazy, the hitmaking duo brought an instrumental to life through pumped up, anticipatory synths of some sort, intense percussion, and always succinct 808s that complement Lovell’s voice insanely well. He comes in right as the beat drops, casually yet somehow still menacingly, and his words just assault your eardrums like they normally seem to do. Lindasson comes in for the …

Baby – [DJ Scheme] ft. [Iann Dior]

By Danny Adams // 14 Jan 2021

DJ Scheme has long been a close friend and acquaintance of ours here at lyrical lemonade, and like a fine wine, he continues to only get better with age. At the beginning of December, he dropped off his debut album FAMILY and it was an absolute smash hit, at least in my mind. He was able to bring all different styles and sonic landscapes to life throughout this 17-song album, and every time I go back and revisit it, I seem to be more and more blown away. Obviously, the features he selected on this project help Scheme provide different stylistic choices, but every single guest plays such an important role in this album’s success. He got names like Skrillex, Joey Bada$$, Ski Mask, Lil Yachty, Ty Dolla $ign, Fenix Flexin, $NOT, and too many others to name in this sentence, but I never imagined seeing some of these talents on the same album let alone the same song. One of my favorite cuts off of the project is definitely “Baby” featuring Iann Dior, and although this is a much more soothing, heartfelt ballad than what we’re used to hearing from Iann, he takes the baton and runs with it. …

Chosen – [Taleban Dooda] ft. [T9ine]

By Danny Adams // 13 Jan 2021

South Florida has been one of the busiest hubs in the world when it comes to the creation of Rap music, and as of recently, Taleban Dooda has been the guy that everyone has had their eyes on. He has a similar gritty attitude to many of his counterparts, but his sound is completely different than anyone else you’d hear out of the Tampa area which is going to go a long way when helping to differentiate himself from all the other incredible talents in the area. In order to get 2021 started off on the highest of notes, Dooda teamed up with fellow Tampa spitter T9ine and an extremely talented producer who goes by Gasky in order to bring his latest single “Chosen” to life. Gasky breathes life into this touching street anthem through emotive piano keys, some soothing synths or strings of some sort, and an unbelievably bouncy drumline that is completely invigorating. The duo divides up the hook with T9ine taking the first half and Dooda handling the second, and although they both have completely different sounding voices, they both share fairly similar stories, so their words just roll off their tongues in the most genuinely inspiring …

Hitman – [Father]

By Danny Adams // 13 Jan 2021

Back in August, prolific rapper Father released his EP Tha Thingz I Do 4 Money, and I was immediately a fan. I mean, I have been listening to his music for years so I’m not surprised, but there was just something about that short, 5 song EP that drew me in from the moment I played the first song, and I feel like it went relatively under the radar much more than it should have. Nonetheless, Father’s charismatic, entertaining personality doesn’t dwell on those types of things but rather focuses on making music for himself, understanding that his true fans will appreciate and love whatever he puts out, and I still have yet to be disappointed myself in all honesty. Right in the middle of the EP came the song “Hitman” which is probably my favorite record on the entire project, and luckily, the unique and creative emcee decided to revisit the song and gift listeners with a brand-new Trent Munson-directed music video. There’s just something about this song that’s lighthearted enough to pick out some inventive lyrics but also meaningful enough that it feels like a love song at the same time. As you might expect, the visual opens …

Bad Day – [Nyck Caution] ft. [Denzel Curry]

By Danny Adams // 13 Jan 2021

Pro Era never seems to miss, although the only member of the collective I’m actually extremely familiar with is obviously Joey Bada$$. I’ve become acquainted with certain other members through certain songs he has released that feature them, but I definitely need to get on top of my game moving forward, especially when it comes to Nyck Caution, one of the most promising yet underrated members of the group without a doubt. On Friday, Nyck is gearing up to release his album Anywhere But Here, and considering he has already dropped off a few singles to hype up the project’s release, I definitely need to zone in and listen up, and I suggest you do the exact same thing. Today, Nyck teamed up with none other than Denzel Curry for a song entitled “Bad Day”, and after hearing this compared to some of the other singles, I already know that Friday is going to be anything but a bad day. You already knew that this record is a hit as soon as you find out Charlie Heat produced this record, and as soon as you press play, you realize exactly how right your presumptions were. He incorporates some lively, animated …

Hot Boy Bling – [French Montana] ft. [Jack Harlow] & [Lil Durk]

By Danny Adams // 12 Jan 2021

Although French Montana might not be at the very top of my list of favorite Rappers, there’s absolutely no denying the fact that he has this natural talent for making all-out hits when push comes to shove. There’s just something about the smoothness of his voice or his uncanny ability to find the entirely right flow for every situation that makes his contributions to records so impactful, so although he might not be my go-to favorite, I’ll never deny his remarkable abilities even slightly. Back in November, French decided to deliver the fifth installment of his Coke Boys series, this time recruiting artists like Jim Jones, Lil Durk, Pop Smoke, Max B, Benny The Butcher, A$AP Rocky, and many others for some wild contributions. In all honesty, I haven’t listened to the project in its entirety, but the songs I have heard have thoroughly impressed me, so I’ll get there eventually. One of the biggest cuts off of the tape is undeniably “Hot Boy Bling”, a JetsonMade-produced banger that includes both Lil Durk and Jack Harlow. While the features might’ve been what drew me in, it wouldn’t surprise me to hear people reciting the repetitive hook due to its catchiness, …

95 Madden – [A$AP Twelvyy]

By Danny Adams // 12 Jan 2021

It’s no secret that the A$AP Mob is one of the most-recognized, well-known collectives in all of music. While Rocky and Ferg might be the frontrunners, there are a handful of other artists that make up the Mob, and every member plays a vital role in the group’s success. If you don’t believe me, just listen to either of their Cozy Tapes collaborative projects, because although Rocky or Ferg might be some of the most recognizable voices, all the other members team up and provide some very impactful contributions. One of my favorite members is undeniably A$AP Twelvyy, and I would also say he’s one of the most underrated as well. His flows are constantly new, his voice is full of charisma and personality, and he just has this way about his delivery that differentiates himself from the rest of the collective without sounding even remotely out of place. Back in October, Twelvyy released his album, Noon Yung, a 15-song effort that was filled with old school-influences with new-aged twists, and I definitely feel as if it deserved a lot more recognition than it initially received. Luckily, Twelvyy decided to team up with director Dennis Wilford in order to breathe …
