Excuse Me – [2kthagoon]

If you’ve followed along to any of the articles I write, you should most likely be familiar with 2kthagoon. I’ve always enjoyed his music for as long as I can remember, and I’m not sure what changed in his world recently or when he decided to kick things up a notch, but recently he’s been making some of the best music of his life and it’s time that people listen up. He has this ambient quality behind his vocals that provide a dark aesthetic sonically which truly compliments his always on point beat selection flawlessly. It’s also impressive to see how his insane work ethic doesn’t affect the quality of his efforts considering most artists who produce the same high output of music might lack in that part of their work. Most recently, he surprised us with a brand-new track called “Excuse Me” which is yet another song that helps make the argument that he’s one of, if not the most underrated artist coming out of the booming North Carolina underground scene. Romeo and M2K produced this hit and although I’m not entirely familiar with their abundance of work, I’ve definitely heard their work prior to this, and they do …

No Autotune – [2kthagoon] ft. [Drayco McCoy]

If you’ve been paying attention to any of my articles since I began writing for Lyrical Lemonade almost a year ago, you are definitely already familiar with 2kthagoon. He’s one of my favorite up and comers and he’s been on my radar for longer than some of the biggest names in Rap music have been. He just has this raw ability to create some incredible melodies and utilize different sounds to be as dexterous and agile as possible on any beat that’s thrown his way. Even though I’m still a massive fan of his older, previously released work, his recent music has been taken to another level and you can tell just how serious he has been taking his career. Especially with his most recent release “No Autotune”, 2k pushes the limits of his abilities and stylistic aptitudes once again while also recruiting an equally promising up and comer who I’m sure you’re familiar with, Drayco McCoy. One of my favorite parts of most 2k songs include his masterful use of autotune effects on his voice because no one is using this vocal alteration quite like 2k is, at least in the same stage in their careers. When I saw …

Seal777- [2kthagoon]

For years and years at this point, I have slowly but surely accumulated a very vast collection of underground artists who I have to pay attention to every single time they drop new music. At the very top of this list is undoubtedly 2kthagoon for so many different reasons. Back when I first found out about him, he was putting out so much music that I felt as if I could blink and miss a new drop, so that work ethic was something I admired and respected. Even if not every single song topped his previous release, the fact that he kept trying out different styles and experimenting made me eager to return for more new music to see just what kind of style he was trying out each time. More recently, his experimentations continue but his releases are a bit more spaced out. With this being the case, however, you can tell the quality and pure effort that goes into each and every release is so much more thought out and professional, which is definitely necessary to get to the next level in his career. I personally think 2k is making some of the best music of his life …

Lightspeed – [BBY GOYARD]

It’s about time that North Carolina starts getting a lot more respect for the insane amount of talent that’s coming up out of the underground. This is probably the most under the radar parts of the country when it comes to Rap music considering there’s so much genius hailing from this region, but so many of these artists are still considerably underappreciated. Some of the many artists you’ve almost surely heard of coming from this state include RONSOCOLD, BIGBABYGUCCI, 2kthagoon, and of course, BBY GOYARD. I’m not sure what the obsession is with all caps in the majority of their names, but it could be metaphorical in the sense that each of their individualistic music screams uniqueness and it’s all something that just needs to be paid attention to. All of these artists are making some of the most distinctive, original music in the entire industry, and yet none of it sounds remotely similar to one another. The only possible comparative quality is the fact that the beats and vocal effects used typically come so randomly that each song sounds nothing like any of its predecessors. Take BBY GOYARD for instance. Sure, he was born and grew up in Maryland, …

Masons – [2kthagoon]

In a world full of up and coming artists who all have so much potential, it can be hard to decipher exactly who deserves your time of day and who isn’t necessarily worthy of your efforts when it comes to listening to their music. I can tell you with one hundred percent certainty that 2kthagoon is well worth your time and efforts because he’s one of the most slept on artists coming up in the Rap industry. His style is unique, and although he may use autotune as the majority of the industry does, he has a stranglehold on the sound, knowing exactly how to use it to elevate his voice and not exploiting it as a kickstand to hold himself or his music up. Whether he used the vocal effect or not, his music would still be able to stand on its own because of his masterful flows and intricate deliveries that are always on display within each and every one of his songs. Don’t just take my word, though, but rather check out his latest song “Masons” in order to see his talents for yourself. The scene is set through reverberating, mystifying synths, chattering hats, and somewhat subdued …

GEEKRS- [2kthegoon]

It has truly been a lot of fun to see 2kthagoon’s journey through the music scene. He has gone through phases where he couldn’t go more than probably two or three days without dropping something new including singles and actual projects. Despite his dedication and constant output, he never really made too many visuals which seems to be a vital part of garnering a loyal fanbase and growing as an artist. Even with this being the case, 2k still managed to attract fans from all over the country due to his uncharacteristic style, laid back personality, and melodic deliveries. This sort of cult following has kept growing slowly but steadily, and it’s not going to stop multiplying any time soon from the looks of it. 2020 is a new year for the budding North Carolina hitmaker and the tides have turned thankfully because he’s actually back with his second visual of the year for his hit song “GEEKRS”. Considering the bubbliness of the track itself, the video brings a lighthearted vibe to mesh well with the song. Colorful effects provided by a greenscreen take 2k to another dimension where he dances and recites his lines. Although some of the greenscreen …

Geekers- [2kthagoon]

2kthagoon is one of the brightest young stars coming out of the blossoming North Carolina rap scene. His melodic trap anthems and ability to manipulate the effects on his voice effortlessly make him stand out amongst a crowd of replicants and copycats. He has also been known to release vast amounts of music back to back, almost not letting fans breathe in between drops. Recently however, he’s pumped the brakes a bit to truly hone in on releasing quality rather than just quantity. A prime example of the quality of music he’s dropping is his first song of the year “Geekers”. Although he might talk about a lot of similar topics in each of his tracks, he never fails to keep these references fresh and updated. The production is bubbly, giving off the feeling as if he is floating along throughout the beat. 2k mentions some of the drugs, specifically lean, that he sips on some of the holidays throughout the year, as well as some of the girls he’s come in contact with that seem to stick around in his mind. His vocals are known for having heavy effects on them, and the filter over his autotuned voice is …
