By Elliot Montanez // 18 Nov 2018

A Chicago based artist that goes by the name of Dre Izaya recently released a new song titled “Play King”, so i thought why not share it with our audience? I was impressed how Dre just steeped up to the plate right away and didn’t hold back i the least but, once he got a grip of this self-produced instrumental he found the perfect pocket and rode it out for the duration of the track. I wasn’t very familiar with Dre Izaya before coming across this new release on Soundcloud, but I liked what I heard and I will be checking out his future releases, take a few minutes of your time to listen to this new cut below.

Ready For A War – [Qari]

By Elliot Montanez // 18 Nov 2018

I believe out of all of the great music that has been coming out of Chicago this year, Qari is in the conversation for having one of the strongest years, and tonight he is back with the release of his brand new song titled “Ready For A War”. Once I clicked play and got a glimpse of the addicting production from Mulatto I knew Qari was about to snap based on their history, and sure enough he beat up the instrumental with some viscous rhymes, showing off his gifted lyrical ability on his way to making this awesome track. Stream this brand new tune below and if you like it visit Qari’s website here to learn some more about him!

Count It Up – [RonSoCold] x [The Good Perry]

By Elliot Montanez // 16 Nov 2018

Lyrical Lemonade favorites RonSoCold and The Good Perry are making their way back on our platform tonight with the premiere of their brand new offering titled “Run It Up. RonSoCold has been a favorite of mine due to his ability to seemingly create hit records at the snap of the finger, when it comes to gracefully floating over bouncy instrumentals Ron is unmatched, and this new joint only furthermore proves that point. The feature on the back end of this one from Atlanta native The Good Perry made this track that much better, he complimented both Ron and the beat very well & I believe I speak for all of their fans when I say that I hope to see these two work together more in the future. Listen to this brand new tune below and if you like it be sure to keep up with RonSoCold by giving him a follow on Twitter here.

Beautiful Smile – [Saba] ft. [IDK]

By Mike del Ro // 16 Nov 2018

Following the release of “Stay Right Here” last week, Saba keeps the new music coming with yet another single. Titled “Beautiful Smile”, the Westside wordsmith takes us to the more dismal side of his discography, offering a bleak confrontation of certain aspects of his current place in life. Saba touches on how his life has changed in recent years, the shifting of relationships with people around him and the friends and family he’s lost with a level of vulnerability he’s proven masterful at time and again. His verses unfold like a screenplay, turning stories from his past and present into raps that spawn into vivid images in a listener’s mind. IDK, who dropped his exhilarating ‘IDK & Friends :)’ project just last week, absolutely demolishes his verse as well, making for a natural compliment to Saba. It’s no doubt been a big year for Saba, with the release of ‘Care For Me’ earlier this year bolstering the Chicago native’s status as one of the game’s current strongest lyricists. On “Beautiful Smile”, he keeps things unflinchingly real, making it clear he has no intentions of switching up anytime soon. Stream the new song below and catch Saba at the 2nd annual …
