Generation Nothing – [Damien Styles]

By Danny Adams // 21 Sep 2021

Damien Styles is an artist who is relatively new to my radar, but he’s a talent that I feel has unlimited potential which is definitely an exciting spectacle. Ever since I was put onto him a few months back, he signed with 10K Projects, making him another incredible addition to their roster that seemingly continues to get stronger and stronger by the day. Since he has drawn comparisons to Lil Peep, he is right up my alley considering Peep is still one of my favorite artists to this day, and even though Damien has some very individualistic qualities that differentiate him from the late, great star, I think this comparison is something that will get Peep fans excited for the future of Damien’s career. Most recently, he decided to release a brand-new record entitled “Generation nothing” as well as an amazing music video that was directed by both himself and Thaddeus Swift, making it a one-two punch that you simply can’t miss out on. In the song, Damien combines his angsty, passionate delivery with a very hard-hitting, ambient instrumental that comes together for a record that you’re going to want to listen to on repeat for the foreseeable future. In …

BLEACH – [ZillaKami] ft. [Denzel Curry]

By Danny Adams // 21 Sep 2021

Recently, it seems like I’ve been writing all about ZillaKami’s music, but you won’t hear me complaining about this even slightly. While I’ve been a fan of his for a while, it seems like I was somehow not realizing just how incredibly talented and versatile he is, so I’ve been fully consumed with his music in recent history. As for Denzel Curry, I feel as if he can fit into a similar vein as Kami, but he has shown that his ability to change styles and show off his dexterity is something that sets the two apart. Either way, these two talents are no strangers to working together, but their most recent collaboration entitled “BLEACH” is truly a record that I haven’t stopped listening to since it was released yesterday, making it a song and music video combination that I had to talk about. Opening up with a very Nirvanna-esque guitar melody that’s combined with some tempo-setting drums and percussion, this instrumental is one that gives this tag team a perfect launching pad to go in whichever direction they please, and you know anything about these two artists, you know that they’re going to kill their verses. As Kami comes …

Popping (Remix) – [Lil Xelly] ft. [Tony Shhnow]

By Danny Adams // 21 Sep 2021

Back in his hay day just a few years ago, Lil Xelly was putting out more music on his own than pretty much the rest of the music industry collectively. I don’t know how he found enough time in a day to record the number of songs he would put out, but I think that just speaks to his talents because it takes a truly special artist to constantly bring something new to the table with every new song, especially when you’re putting out multiple mixtapes per week. While his productivity might’ve slowed down slightly, and I want to emphasize slightly, he is still putting out so much new music that constantly showcases his incredible skills time and time again. Just a few days ago, he put out a project entitled Trap Boyardee, and while I didn’t realize this was already out until today, I’m now extremely excited to tune into the 9 new records he blessed fans with, even though I know he’s going to have more records out in the blink of an eye. One of the standouts from my early listen to this project was “Poppin”, a song that seems to utilize an instrumental from one of …

Mr. Solo Dolo III – [Kid Cudi]

By Danny Adams // 20 Sep 2021

One of the best parts about writing for Lyrical Lemonade is the fact that I get to cover music from all of my favorite artists whenever I want, and that’s not something everyone gets to say, not even other music writers. When it comes to my favorite artist of all time, that title is taken by Kid Cudi and the rest of my list isn’t even close, personally. He has obviously been in the scene for over a decade, making some of the most incredible sounds in all of music, and his latest album Man on the Moon III: The Chosen just proves why his spot at the top of the hip-hop industry is cemented. He just touches on so many poignant subjects, many of which have helped me get through hardships that have popped up throughout my life, so my personal admiration for Cudi goes much deeper than the music itself. Since becoming one of the fathers of modern-day hip-hop, he has dipped his toe into various other industries, with acting being another lane that he excels in, and I’m so happy that he is living his life the way he wants to, and not letting social limitations tell …

On the Block – [Lil Maru]

By Danny Adams // 20 Sep 2021

If you know anything about me, you should know that the West Coast music scene is one of my favorite musical hubs in the world, and I never fail to be impressed with the incredible artists coming out of California. At the same time, there is never any shortage of talent either, and I find myself hearing about new up-and-coming artists constantly in one way or another. Now that I have a few friends out there to clue me in on the latest and greatest talents within the scene there, I have expanded my knowledge and interest in this part of the US immensely, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Most recently, I was put onto San Diego’s very own Lil Maru, an artist who is taking classic sounds that have put this part of the country on the sonic map with his own spin, providing us with a breath of fresh air that rejuvenates California music for all listeners, and I’m so appreciative to have him on my radar now. As the song begins, we hear some wavy sounds that are eventually joined by some classic, West Coast synths for an amazing melody that is only elevated by chattering …

Soulja Slim – [Rot Ken]

By Danny Adams // 20 Sep 2021

Ever since I first found out about Rot Ken a few months back, I have been religiously tuning into his music every time he releases something new, and I have yet to be disappointed even slightly. He has a twang to his voice that reminds me of Lil Baby, but he is much more melodic and versatile, in my opinion, creating songs that can either get you in your feels or make you want to go on a rampage with your gang. While I think he’s the breath of fresh air that the Florida rap scene needed, he is grossly underrated based on the records I’ve heard, but considering he’s just 17 years old, at this point, he has the opportunity to expand and hone in on his craft so much more as he gets older and more experienced. Ever since working with Internet Money, it seems like his skills have only gotten better, and his most recent song “Soulja Slim” is one of the best songs I heard all weekend, so I couldn’t wait to talk about it. Produced by Chris Made, things open up with a vocal sample and some touching piano chords prior to rattling percussion and …

Think You Right – [Whethan] ft. [ericdoa] & [Glaive]

By Danny Adams // 17 Sep 2021

Ever since I became fully engrossed in the world of hyperpop, I have yet to be let down by any of the artists classified in this very niche yet incredible subgenre. Not only are they proving exactly how innovative they can be behind a microphone, but the instrumentals are out of this world, and they never seem to stop releasing things, so there’s always a new jam to get in tune with which is a blessing without a doubt in my mind. If you’re even remotely similar with this genre, it doesn’t take someone like me to tell you that ericdoa and Glaive are two of the poster children for hyperpop, and they’re only going to continue to get better as they make their way throughout their careers and get older. Aside from them, Whethan is a producer who has been solidifying himself in the scene for quite some time, and he has been creating the foundation of so many different songs with some of the most inventive sounds in music, so he definitely can’t go unnoticed, either. Luckily, this trio decided to come together for an unbelievable new song called “Think You Right”, and the results are as amazing …

isolation – [Demxntia] ft. [ITSOKTOCRY]

By Danny Adams // 17 Sep 2021

Not too long ago, I was put onto Demxntia’s very versatile discography of music, and even though I still need to do more digging to familiarize myself with the rest of his music, let’s just say that I haven’t heard a miss yet, and that gets me excited for the future of his career. Beyond this, I’ve also come to learn in a short period of time that he’s an all-out workhorse, never taking a minute off but rather grinding day in and day out to deliver a plethora of songs that are all even more creative than the last, so there’s never any shortage of output from the Florida talent. Although he typically spends his time in the studio behind the production decks, he decided to show off some of his vocal skills in his latest song entitled “isolation”, which also features one of my personal favorite artists ITSOKTOCRY. In the beat, there are some toned-down guitar strums combined with some intriguing percussive elements and some booming drums, but when Demxntia comes in as soon as you press play, his vocals just resound in your head as you hear so much passion and emotion going into his delivery. While …
