Watch BabyTron’s new interview on The Lemonade Stand

Earlier this summer we had the legend BabyTron come by the office to shoot a new interview on The Lemonade Stand, and today I am happy to be bringing you the final product! We asked BabyTron about plenty of topics including his “Emperor Of The Universe” music video, growing up in Ypsilanti outside of Detroit, his high school experience, his favorite episode of Spongebob, and we even got his take on some classic Chicago food staples. Take some time out of your day to watch this new interview below!

223’s – [midwxst] ft. [BabyTron]

It’s hard to classify midwxst’s reign as anything but dominant. Over the past few years, he went from being just a kid in his bedroom playing around with a microphone to one of the most recognized up-and-comers in the entire world, and his rise to fame is only just beginning. His Back in Action series of projects has been a massive reason why he has become so notorious, and while these tapes feature some of my favorite tracks from the Indiana-born emcee, he has an extensive list of singles that continue to build on the vibrant legacy he is solidifying at such a young age. What I love about his discography is the versatility, because although hyperpop may have been his ticket into stardom, it is his constant attempts at different styles and sounds that seem to really stand out to his loyal fans. This dexterity is obvious on the third edition of his series of projects Back in Action 3.0, a 9-song, 23-minute-long effort that only contains two features, one in tana on the final cut and then BabyTron on the tape’s second song “223’s”. BabyTron is definitely one of the craziest and most unexpected features that I could’ve …

Gwapanese-[Nate Husser] x [BabyTron]

Montreal native and LA based rising star, Nate Husser links up with Michigan icon BabyTron for some brand new heat titled “Gwapanese.” The song serves as a focus-track off Husser’s album, ALL TIME HIGH, which contains nine other bangers. Along with BabyTron, ALL TIME HIGH impressively features the likes of Cousin Stizz, LUCKI, Merlyn Wood and Reeves Junya. However, it’s Nate that undeniably sets and maintains the project’s hype all the way through; indicative of his own unique flair. On “Gwapanese,” Husser boasts his ability to flow with multiple voices, which he also displays on “Dwayne Carter Flow;” a frighteningly accurate impression and homage to the legendary Lil Wayne. His varied approach fits the experimentally creative instrumental, which is equally suitable for BabyTron’s signature Detroit flow. Nate Husser is already traversing the world with fluency in ‘Gwapanese,’ and after listening to this record, it’s obvious that more guap awaits his pockets. Watch the official music video below and be sure to stream ALL TIME HIGH in its entirety!

Trifecta 2 – [Shitty Boyz]

Detroit has had a handful of talented and innovative musicians come out of the woodwork over the past few years, and while some have made it bigger than others, it isn’t very typical that a group has received notoriety the way the Shitty Boyz have. It’s definitely not uncommon for these emcees to work pretty regularly together, and even with a myriad of bangers coming from artists who have worked together, they just don’t claim to be a part of a group, and I think that makes the Shitty Boyz stand out more than anything. Even with BabyTron blowing up, topping charts, buzzing like crazy, and even being a member of the 2022 XXL Freshman Class, he hasn’t let these massive accolades go to his head and always uses this popularity to draw attention to the trio he’s a part of, and that’s something that I respect and appreciate more than anyone else who was a part of a group and left when they took off. I truly think it’s because Tron believes in his counterparts TrDee and StanWill, as he should because if you have heard any one of their numerous songs, you can see that their chemistry and …

Goin’ Hyphy – [Shitty Boyz]

As time goes on and the music industry shifts, I feel like groups are starting to fade away more than they ever have before. Certain tag teams and collectives are either going their separate ways, pursuing individual careers, or enter into other endeavors that put an end to the unit once and for all. I mean, there are even very believable reports going around about how Offset left Migos, and while Quavo and Takeoff are making music on their own without the third member of the trio, it seems like these whispers may in fact be true. I get that it has to be difficult to keep similar mindsets and goals as you begin to blow, but it doesn’t make this trend any less factual, so when I come across a clique that stays together, I jump at the opportunity to listen. Shitty Boyz is one of the last true groups that I can think of, and while BabyTron might be the most recognized of the three emcees, once you hear them all together on the same track, you understand how powerful and harmonized they have as an entity. I would also be remised if I didn’t mention how even …

Slam Dunk Contestants – [Shitty Boyz]

Out of the entire current generation of rap music, there aren’t many artists who are more notorious than BabyTron. While he is as Detroit as it gets, it seems like the Michigan rapper label is something that he has transcended and he is in a realm of his own. I mean, the success he has achieved in just a year or two since blowing up is mind-boggling, and while it’s not surprising when you hear exactly how versatile and intelligent his bars are, it is still something that I don’t realize until I really sit back and think about it. After receiving millions of plays and views and most recently being selected to XXL’s 2022 Freshman Class, the one thing that seems to never change is his representation of his group Shitty Boyz. He says their name during or at the end of almost every song or performance he puts on, and no matter how massive he gets, it appears as if he’ll never stop putting on for the group. It’s the squad as a whole that doesn’t get as much shine as they deserve despite these shoutouts, but the trio made up of Tron, TrDee, and StanWill is truly …

The 2022 Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash Through My Eyes: Full Weekend Recap

Preface Yes, this article is super long and tedious, my bad…. Forewarning, if you’ve already read my other recaps for each individual day, skip to the end for a few words of admiration to the LL family, from me! Every year, the Summer Smash seems to get bigger, better, and more insane than ever before, and 2022 is definitely no exception. Unfortunately, I missed the first year or two because of one reason or another, so 2021 was actually my first time experiencing this event live and in person. At the same time, though, I had been to various other concerts hosted by LL dating all the way back to Lil Uzi Vert’s first-ever Chicago performance way back in April of 2016, so I know how we throw down at live events, and I also know just how loyal, supportive, and turnt up our fans get every chance they get. 2022 had some curveballs thrown at the team including a detrimental storm that almost paused the entire festival, but thanks to the consistently hard-working and ride-or-die group of individuals who put this fest together, the show went on without a hitch! I just want to clarify that this article is …

Fanfiction – [CIB]

Summer is officially one week away, which means it’s time to start carefully piecing together our weekly rotations to soundtrack our trips to the beach and lazy pool days. Though many of us are currently knee-deep in the rollouts of Pi’erre Bourne, Duke Deuce, and Cochise – today our ears are graced with the refreshingly unique indie-pop track “Fanfiction” from LA-via-NY singer/songwriter CIB (Complete In Box). You might have caught a glimpse of her newest release in a viral TikTok she made showing off some “NYU x Taylor Swift” merch earlier last month, but this week our queen returns with the track in full, and luckily, it was worth the wait. Synthesizing raw pastoral acoustics with modern electronic production, CIB leads listeners on a journey through existential and romantic tension in “Fanfiction”‘s cathartic verses. Like her previously-viral banger “Mott St.”, “Fanfiction” showcases an artist whose wisdom is just as full of charm as it is understated – unafraid of taking risks while wielding an unhealthy affinity for clever songwriting. On “Fanfiction” CIB notes, “Nostalgia and futurism are two themes that are deeply intertwined in my music and visual identity. Fanfiction is the “internet babies” love song. The song captures the …

Bring Em Thru’ – [BabyTron]

If you are still sleeping on Detroit’s very own BabyTron at this point, it’s far beyond the time that you should’ve woken up. He is undeniably one of the most creative emcees from a state that is riddled with individuality and versatile personalities, so the fact that he is able to stand out so much is a complete spectacle beyond a shred of doubt in my mind. I mean, I think moving forward it is going to be extremely difficult to top his song and video for “Emperor of the Universe” because it’s one of those things where when you have a song that boasts 21 different samples spanning over decades of eras of hip-hop, and then you get Cole Bennett to shoot at 21 different scenes on an iPhone, there really isn’t much you can do to beat that, but this doesn’t mean that he has hit his peak, or even came close to it yet. Even with so many lengthy projects out, he still drops new records constantly, so when I saw that he not only dropped a song called “Bring Em Thru’” that was produced by JakeSand, Danny G, and Getta Beats a few days ago, but …
