A Place for Us – [Pardyalone]

Ever since I first found out about Pardyalone, it is hard for me to imagine a more captivating artist on the rise than him. I get overly excited when I find out that he put out something new, which is weird because his music is often pretty depressive and bleak, but it’s not just sad for the sake of being sad. Pardy isn’t just another musician with face tattoos and a fabricated story. In fact, he is exactly the opposite. If for some reason you judged him on appearance alone and had to predict what kind of music he made, you would be dead wrong, and that’s what I love so much about him. He is different, and I italicize the word because I can’t stress this enough. His dejected narratives might not get you pumped up or dancing, but he shares his experiences in a way that reveals every last bit of his soul, and it connects with listeners on a level much deeper than music alone. No matter what kind of mood I’m in, he forces me to revisit my previous hardships and put them into perspective, helping me learn to be a better person even if these …

Big Dog – [Lil Eazzyy]

Lil Eazzyy had one hell of a 2020, and it might not be too outrageous to say that he had the best year musically out of most underground talents, especially in Chicago. What’s even crazier is the fact that his debut project didn’t even come out until the end of November, which means he really finished the year as strong as he possibly could have. Although his viral hit “Onna Come Up” came out months before, it was clear that Eazzyy was never planning on being a one-hit-wonder, and his EP Underrated definitely backed up his skills. Fresh off of his Lemonade Stand interview here at Lyrical Lemonade, he decided to revisit the final track on his November project entitled “Big Dog” and bring the song to life in the form of an inspirational as well as aggressive music video. In this visual, he got the 3DN Media production company and director Chris Vergara to bring some of his eye-opening words to life, and I don’t think I’m alone when I say that the results are absolutely wonderful. As the video begins, the camera pans in on Eazzyy as he is shown almost in an interview-like setting. Here, he discusses …

Big Mad – [WemmyMo]

WemmyMo has grown into one of my favorite young rising artists out of the mega talented city that is Chicago, he has dropped singles that I have loved and even a entire project last year called Bittersweet that I thoroughly enjoyed, and today he is back with the release of his brand new music video for “Big Mad”. I was very happy when I first watched this one because it’s a vibrant and colorful visual that displays WemmyMo as the person he truly is, that’s a charismatic kid who is fun, genuine and out-going. I enjoyed how this music video also displayed some of Wemmy’s comedic abilities in the skit, overall I am pleased with this release, 10/10 in my book.
