F*ck No – [99 Neighbors]

Having recently signed a deal alongside Pat Corcoran, it’s no secret that the whole music world has its head turned toward 99 Neighbors right now. The expectations are high for the genre-blending collective, but as we’ve seen so far, they remain unphased, just as the art is sure to reflect. Today, acting as physical evidence of such, 99 Neighbors is back with one of my favorite releases of theirs to date, “F*ck No.” Featuring contributions from Brasstracks and PhiloSofie, “F*ck No” checks off all the right boxes in regards to its sonic appeal, from soul-soaked brass contributions all the way to the silky smooth hook and even the natural allure of the deliveries. In addition, illustrated by the carefree, DIY nature of the music video, the group and its feature acts seem to be having genuine fun, boasting an unforced sense of chemistry that listeners simply can’t deny. With this, while I can’t help but praise the aforementioned features, it’s important to zero in on the magic that 99 Neighbors, themselves, are delivering in their latest offering. The verses are more polished than ever and the lyrics as captivating as can be, pointing toward a severely fun future for the group’s …

Premiere: Fake Pods (Music Video)-[99 Neighbors]

Man oh man! As you know, nothing brings me more joy than being able to highlight some of the sickest talent on our pages! For those of you who were looking for something to change the whole trajectory of your Tuesday, look no further. Lyrical Lemonade regulars, 99 Neighbors just dropped a brand new track that is set to make some serious noise! Before I get into the song though, I want to make sure I also take the time to congratulate the creative team for some big things that have gone down. Just yesterday, the members of 99 Neighbors inked a label deal with Nice Work and Warner Records which is a partnership headed by Chance The Rapper’s manager, Pat Corcoran. I would say I was surprised by this news, but it was truly inevitable. Ever since hearing their music, I knew that 99 Neighbors had a bright future ahead of them. When you look at the group, all you see is a whole lot passion, a whole lot of hard work and a whole lot of love. This accomplishment is so well deserved and I’m so hype for all of the things they’re going to cook up for …

welcome to chili’s – [99 Neighbors]

Yesterday, the 99 Neighbors crew blessed us with a new offering entitled “welcome to chili’s,” and just like that, the Vermont collective is back with the follow-up music video for it! Here at Lyrical Lemonade, we pride ourselves on posting content that’s not only dope but visually pleasing as well. This new music video by 99 Neighbors is just that. If you’ve already listened to “welcome to chili’s,” you noticed the chill and laid back vibe that it gave off. This visual doesn’t miss a beat as it keeps in line with the vision created by the song itself. In a world full of high budget music videos that miss the mark, 99 Neighbors decided to go the DIY route and it undoubtedly shined in its own genuine and authentic way. Filled with video snippets from an iPhone, the collective was able to effectively capture the style, personality and energy that sets the apart from many artists these days. As I said in my previous post, Swank, Sam Paulino, and HANKNATIVE absolutely crushed their verses, but it was really refreshing to actually see them in action! I’ve attached the YouTube link below, so check out 99 Neighbors’ brand new music …

Premiere: welcome to chili’s – [99 Neighbors]

They say teamwork makes the dream work, and when it comes to 99 Neighbors, there is no doubt that this statement is true. A couple of months back, the rising collective made their debut on our site and today, I’m hyped to let y’all know that they’re back with a new offering that is a guaranteed banger! Back before Vine was stripped from our lives, one of my favorite 6-second videos on that app was the one centered around the tag line, “welcome to chili’s”! To pay respect to such an iconic video, the title of 99 Neighbors’ latest offering is literally titled “welcome to chili’s”; but don’t let the humorous name fool you, the song is serious in every sense of the word. This brand new offering opens up with a sick bass strum, setting a relaxed ambiance that carries throughout all 3 minutes. Further, the simplistic production effortlessly adds personality to the sound, freeing up a lot of space for Swank, Sam Paulino and HANKNATIVE to lay down some clever bars throughout the verses. Needless to say, each of them brings their own unique style to this joint, and it’s refreshing to hear such mature flows and lyrics. …

20 Chicago Artists To Look Out For in 2016

#1 – Kweku Collins  Here we have a local breakout artist who was signed to Chicago’s independent label, Closed Sessions, earlier this year.  What separates Kweku from the surrounding talent is his musical diversity.  He can rap, he can sing and he can do the both of those very well.  With being the only rapper signed to Closed Sessions, he surprisingly makes all of his moves in silence as he is not one to boast.  Yet these silent strides are quite large as he has stacked tens of thousands of Soundcloud plays over the past couple, as well as an incredible EP – Say It Here, While It’s Safe. #2 – Taylor Bennett This is an artist who has already made an abundance of moves in the Chicago music scene and can be paired alongside notable names such as Hurt Everybody, Logan, Martin $ky, Leather Corduroys & many more.  Topping our artists to look out for chart in 2014 – Taylor Bennett is a breakout artist that took a step back to perfect his craft.  He recently had me over to listen to his Broad Shoulders tape, which is set to release later this year; it’s a product of many, …
