Lyrical Lemonade Presents: The Shordie Shordie Q&A

As I rode in the car with my cameraman on the way to Atlanta I started to prep myself for this interview. Naturally, I like to be over prepared when I’m talking with someone so I’m able to dive into an in-depth conversation with the person. As I’m gazing off into the distance my cameraman asks me to play some Shordie Shordie to get in the mood for the interview. I play “Bitchuary” first of course. Everyone in the car’s mood immediately changes, I ended up letting Shordie’s album ‘Captain Hook’ ride. As I was listening I stopped thinking and worrying about what I was going to say for the interview. For the fact that I had been listening to Shordie’s music non stop over the past couple of weeks so I felt as if I had already known him.

iShyne – [Lil Pump] Ft. [Carnage]

When we talk about artist’s blowing up in a calendar year, there’s simply no competition for who took-over 2017. Yes, I’m talking about one of the youngest to ever do it in South Florida’s Lil Pump and to ring in yet another year of gigantic success, he recently hooked up with DJ Carnage to give us his latest hit titled iShyne. Immediately after taking a glance at the cover art, it’s evident that the 17-year-old is still confident in his efforts to grab the attention of TV-actress Miranda Cosgrove who played the lead character in the childhood series iCarly. I wasn’t sure what to expect when the Pump/ Carnage collab was first announced, but after blasting the insane instrumental which coalesced flawlessly with Pump’s cutthroat lyricism, I was quickly sold on the fact that the Harvard graduate can hop-on literally any beat. That being said, leave us your thoughts below after letting loose iShyne now streaming below!
