Serpintina – [BBY GOYARD]

I’m beyond excited that this month pretty much officially marks the two-year anniversary of my time writing for Lyrical Lemonade, and over the course of these past couple of years, I’ve had the privilege of writing about some of the greatest music and artists in the industry, no matter how big or small they might be. While I enjoy covering nationally-known acts, I definitely prefer to cover the underground because there is never any shortage of creativity or personality in this scene, and the rest of the world just needs a little extra urge to catch on. One of the artists who I’ve covered copiously throughout my tenure is BBY GOYARD, and I’ve even gotten the chance to speak with him and get to know him on a slightly more personal level to the point where I feel like I can consider him a friend, and that’s not something I take for granted for even a second. Despite the fact that he took a bit of a hiatus from releasing music over the past few months, he has still been grinding away in the studio, and I was beyond excited to find out that he’s back after his break with …

The Secret Lies with Charlotte 2 – [BBY GOYARD]

I know I have probably beat this point into the ground by now, but BBY GOYARD is simply one of the most entertaining artists in the entire music industry, and the runner-ups aren’t even close. With all of the creativity and thought that goes into each and every record he puts out, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be a household name at this point, but the longer he stays under the radar, the more people I get to put on as I continue to introduce more friends and family to the talent that is quickly going to become their favorite artist. While he has been known to drop off a bevy of projects throughout the years with each one being better than the previous, he decided to keep his streak going once again with the release of his highly anticipated project The Secret Lies with Charlotte 2, the follow up to last year’s first edition of the series. I thoroughly and wholeheartedly enjoy every single song on this 15 track, 26-minute-long album, and while I want to write a novel on each and every record, I’m going to highlight a few of my favorites for time’s sake. Opening …

SHAPESHIFTER – [BBY GOYARD]

It has been a little while since I’ve dove deep into the SoundCloud music scene, but there are a few names that I was introduced to through the online platform that I’ll never stop cheering for, the biggest name being BBY GOYARD. Just the other day, he decided to team up with producer rubbishrubbish to create a hit entitled “SHAPESHIFTER”, and if you’re not necessarily familiar with GOYARD’s many styles of music, buckle up because you’re in for a treat with this one. Beginning with the beat, there is a dreamy, high pitched synth of some sort that is accentuated by crisp, lighthearted percussion as well as some deep, pungent drums that don’t seem to begin right off the bat, but they enter the picture in a very stealthy, out of left field-like manner. As he raps, he utilizes his slightly higher-pitched vocals that are covered in autotune and other effects, yet he still manages to let his true talents shine through as his vocals just seem to be so pure and genuine. A bit later on, a sliding synth or whistle enters the production to provide even more heavenly sounds that level up GOYARD’s already angelic vocals, constantly leveling …

Summoner – [BBY GOYARD]

There are very few artists in the underground that have even close to the amount of respect that I have for BBY GOYARD. He is simply in a world of his own, and if you’re not creative, open-minded, or ready to hear some of the best and most unique music in the entire industry, then you’re going to breeze right past him without even realizing it. If you are any of the previously mentioned things, though, you just opened your world up to some of the most unbelievable songs that have ever been made, and you have Lil Shannon to thank. When you tune in to one of his projects, it’s almost like he’s a group of artists within one being because the dynamic sounds he can create and very different vocals or stylistic choices he brings to life always bring something new to the table and I’m always curious which persona is going to come out in each new song he drops. Most recently, he decided to drop off an incredible new record entitled “Summoner” which was produced by Taylor Morgan and 4evr. These two hitmakers joined forces and brought a few intriguing sounds to life including dreamy, ambient …

GERM – [David Shawty] ft. [Bby Goyard]

Although the subgenre name Hyper Pop is a relatively new term to me, I’ve been listening to artists who create this kind of music for quite some time now. Obviously, if you’ve paid any attention to my articles over the last year, you should already be aware that Bby Goyard is one of the best talents out, in my opinion, and he has not only introduced me to an entirely new world of music, but he’s also put me onto many other artists who are as unique as he is. David Shawty is one of those artists, and although he’s been growing quite a sizeable following over the past few years as well, I somehow was unfamiliar with him until just a few months ago. I’m so beyond glad that I’m not missing out on David’s music anymore because it’s truly as hectic as it is individualistic. His vocals have so many unfamiliar filters and effects over it that you might think it’s a computer-automated voice when in all reality, it’s just one of the most inventive artists in the industry who is never afraid to push the limits and break through barriers. Seeing these two talents finally come together …

SMOKIN! Freestyle – [BBY Goyard]

There’s not much left to say that I haven’t already said about North Carolina by way of Maryland rapper BBY Goyard. If you haven’t woken up yet and seen the incredibly dexterous styles that Goyard has given us throughout his myriad of releases over the years, there’s not much more I can say other than you’re missing out on some of the best and most distinct music out. It feels almost weird calling him a rapper considering how diverse his sounds are and the sheer adaptability he has shown throughout his extensive career in the underground music scene. With Hyper Pop gaining more and more popularity, I look at Lil Shannon as being one of the founders of this subgenre, yet not all of his releases can simply fall under this category alone. He can make fast-paced, chaotic hits, Trap bangers, and club anthems, but his talents stretch way beyond these varieties as well. Take one of his most recent songs “SMOKIN! Freestyle” for instance, then go and explore the rest of his music, and you’ll have a hard time finding any two songs within his hundreds of releases that sound even slightly similar. Although I just wrote about this …

Auf Wiedersehen & SMOKIN! Freestyle – [BBY Goyard]

Anyone who pays attention to the articles I write should be all too familiar with BBY GOYARD by now. I can’t help but tune in whenever he drops new music and that means I’m tuning in sometimes multiple times per week because of the constant output he can somehow produce. It’s like he’s a machine and the songs just flow out of him, even though it’s insane because, as I’ve said before, none of his releases sound at all similar. He has a few common styles, voices, and effects he uses, but none of these ever replicate music he or anyone else has brought to life previously. It sucks because it seems like GOYARD is going to be one of those artists who is constantly underappreciated for the incredibly inventive style of music he creates because people aren’t ready to respect it but once they wake up, Shannon is going to be everywhere, and for good reason. Most recently, he dropped off a song entitled “Auf Wiedersehen”, and before I even had a chance to write about that, he delivered another freestyle called “SMOKIN!”, so I figured I’d kill two birds with one stone and highlight both of these releases. …

Germ – [David Shawty] ft. [BBY GOYARD]

There are a few elusive and legendary people in the underground music scene that just make some of the most incredible and inventive music ever created, but their recognition level is just not what it deserves to be. David Shawty is one of these artists considering he’s literally making music that is unlike anything you’ve ever heard before and every new offering seems to be wilder and more enthralling than ever before. If there’s one artist I think could work seamlessly with the underground icon, it’s undoubtedly BBY GOYARD who has been on a tear of his own for quite some time in the underground scene. He also makes some of the wildest, most uncharacteristically genre-bending tracks you’ve ever heard, and his dexterity is at an all-time high, like David, so the two were just destined to make a song together at some point or another. Luckily, the day has finally come, and the two trendsetters finally got together for an insane new record entitled “Germ”. There is so much going on on so many different levels, but even through all of the chaos that is unfolding, the two artists manage to steal the show in such an unbelievable way. …

Jenny Craig – [DLNQNT] ft. [BBY GOYARD]

DLNQNT is a promising up and coming Los Angeles artist by way of Pennsylvania, and although I was only recently put onto him, he has impressed me with virtually everything I’ve heard at this point. He’s clearly versatile and has displayed his extensive skillset on numerous occasions, proving that not only can he spit some ruthless bars in a variety of cadences, but he can also lighten the mood with more melodic, dreamy ballads, and anything in between. Honestly, as far as his latest offering “Jenny Craig” is concerned, I’m not sure I would have tuned in if it wasn’t for one of my favorite underground hitmakers BBY GOYARD joining the song and offering his own individualistic input. I’m so glad he drew me in though because this allowed me another opportunity to get in tune with DLNQNT who impressed me more than I was anticipating. Honestly, BBY GOYARD is such a powerful presence on any song due to the fact that his sound is so inventive which helps him stand out more than so many other artists, so this initially concerned me when it comes to DLNQNT’s workload. After hearing him go in to spit right off the bat, …

I Swear They Hate U – [BBY GOYARD]

If you’re unfamiliar with BBY GOYARD, one of Maryland’s most promising talents, it’s about time that you tap in and understand what you’re missing out on. He’s basically your favorite underground rapper’s favorite underground rapper, and he is appreciated by a cult following that has been growing consistently for years at this point. Despite his growth and success within his blossoming music career, he still doesn’t get nearly enough credit or recognition for the plethora of individualistic styles that he experiments with. It’s almost like every time he hits the studio, he makes a conscious effort to make a song that sounds unlike anything else someone has made in the past. Not only this, but it’s almost like he challenges himself even further to create sounds that he himself hasn’t even made yet. Due to this experimental nature and constant drive to try and invent new styles, he’ll keep you on your toes time and time again and GOYARD basically makes it impossible to be bored with any of his offerings. Take his latest single “I Swear They Hate U” for example. The beat, co-produced by deceased, blvnts, and snoozed, is created with rhythmic, animated, almost video game sounding synths …
