Involved – [Coi Leray]

Versatility is truly a key in the music industry that, when done right, can unlock an entire career full of opportunities and accomplishments. I don’t necessarily expect every single artist in the world to be able to do everything, and usually, they have one specific skill that is better than the rest, but as long as I hear them honestly attempting to try something new or think outside of the box about what else they can bring to the table, I can never hate on their grind or efforts. Coi Leray is an artist who has had so much buzz surrounding her music for quite some time now, but the sheer diversity of her style is more than enough to appeal to fans of all different kinds. Full transparency, I am not the biggest fan of the songs she puts out that are full of attitude, hard instrumentals, and rap lines, but I won’t knock them either because she has climbed the ladder of success with records closer to that vibe, so I will always give her the praise she deserves, even if not every single song is right up my alley. On the heels of her album Trendsetter that …

Switch on Me – [Doggi Krazy]

Doggi Krazy is a bilingual artist originally hailing from Colombia, and currently living in NYC. His diversity and flexibility as an artist are exactly what make him special and different. Racking up views quickly, his newest single “Switch on Me” is a high-energy bop that undoubtedly will gather popularity from a multitude of audiences.  The bouncy, uptempo track doesn’t last over two minutes, but what the song lacks in duration, it makes up for in energy. Easy to move your body to, the track crosses genres and is something I could see being featured in a variety of environments.  Doggi has featured on multiple platforms including Billboard, and on Rolling Stone’s Top 100 fastest-growing artists. He’s opened up for  Quondo Rondo, Trippie Redd, Coi Leray, and more. He recently has agreed to a partnership with Empire Latino shortly after getting co-signed by NBA Young Boy. Doggi Krazy is currently managed by NBA Young Boy’s older brother OG 3hree; making him the first Colombian artist under the NBA/4KT Camp. I’m hyped to see how high Doggi Krazy can elevate his library and platform, and “Switch on Me” is just another example of the talent that’s now coming to light.  Tune in on Spotify below!    

Tfemi Joins Forces With Coi Leray On “Same Sh*t

Our goal at Lyrical Lemonade is to highlight artists who create music that we enjoy listening to. One of the best parts of my job is finding new music from artists that I’m unfamiliar with. Tfemi is a rising artist out of New Jersey, building a name for himself in the music industry.  In just a few years, he racked up hundreds of thousands of streams independently worldwide. The Nigerian artist also had the opportunity to have 3 headline shows in his hometown. A lot of his musical inspirations comes for Atlanta superstar Young Thug (#FreeThugger) and Xxxtentacion (RIP). As I began to review Tfemi music, I noticed his flow improves with each release. With each single he puts out, Tfemi shows how versatile his music can be. Two months ago, Tfemi had the chance to collaborate with his fellow New Jersey resident Coi Leray. Over the past few years. Coi’s sharp flow, slick delivery, and catchy hooks has led her to stardom and appearing on the Billboard Hot 100 with her RIAA Certified Platinum hit single “No More Parties”. The pair released their single titled  ‘Same Sh*t’ produced by Levanto. I must say they created a dope record.  “My …

Beautiful Michi Girls – [TyFontaine]

After exploding onto the underground scene in 2019 with his project Waiting On Ascension, TyFontaine has been one of the most dynamic and prolific artists within the tightly packed scene that was itching for a new beacon of artistry and someone who guide the journey of innovation into a new decade that built upon the innovation and success of the initial “SoundCloud” era. The last five years of the 2010’s saw an unbridled period of artistic achievement with so many new styles being introduced and was also the culmination of the internet, and consequently social media, upending the traditional infrastructure and barriers to entry in the music industry. There were many highs and lows in this era but I would imagine hindsight will show us that the greatest triumph of the initial SoundCloud generation was setting the sonic precedents that are still being built off of into the ’20’s and surely will be the blueprint for hip-hop, pop, and many other genres. TyFontaine’s success and talent was obvious to many after Waiting On Ascension, showing all of the melodic promise once shown by other greats, earning him comparisons to contemporary artists like Juice WRLD or even being labeled a “SoundCloud …

Trendsetter – [Coi Leray]

Coi Leray is one of those artists that I love hearing when she’s featured on songs and I always play some of her massive singles on repeat once I first hear them, but I have slept on her solo albums and projects for quite some time, and I really have no reason as to why I do this. I know she is so dexterous, talented, and compelling, but I guess I have no excuse as to why I haven’t listened up, and after finding out about and listening to her brand-new album Trendsetter, I realized that I was completely sleeping on her, and I need to wake the hell up because she honestly can do it all. Luckily, the homie hit me up and told me that it’s an essential listen because it’s such an insane album, and that was the push I needed to tap in, and I was blown away by the 20 songs that spanned just over 50 minutes long. With features like Nicki Minaj, Fivio Foreign, G Herbo, NAV, Lil Durk, Polo G, Lil Tecca, and many more, she has a star-studded lineup of diverse emcees which allows her to flex her versatility as well which …

Bandido – [Donald Grunge]

Donald Grunge is an artist that I’ve known about for a while now, but he seems to always keep some very intriguing tricks up his sleeve, so I never really know what to expect before I press play on any record he has put out. I love this, though, because it almost feels like I’m reacquainting myself with such a unique and creative mind each and every time I listen, and his skill set seems to only expand with every release he gifts us. Just yesterday, I was thankfully put onto his brand-new album Bandido, and I feel like projects are where Donald shines more than ever considering he has more than one song to truly show off his range and diverse originality. With 11 songs lasting almost 23 minutes long, not a single track has a run time of more than two and a half minutes, which means these are pretty quick hits that give you a taste of the various sonic styles that he has been able to perfect throughout his years in the business, and I think this might be the best work I’ve heard from him yet. There is just such a wide array of sounds …

HAKEEM DRILL! – [2219 Lee] ft. [Mali Smith] [Cash Cobain]

A few months back, we premiered a song called “HAKEEM” from New York group MHPG Sound. The track and its accompanying music video were a deeply catchy, limitlessly energetic binding of New York charisma and reference-heavy lyrics, tied together with an OVO Sound Radio premiere to mark the moment. Today, as “HAKEEM” has soundtracked the summertime in New York and beyond, 2219 Lee, Mali Smith, and Cash Cobain are here to revisit this one with “HAKEEM DRILL!”: a remix of the song which gives it Cash Cobain’s signature sample drill twist. Employing the same sample as J Dilla’s “Stop,” the “HAKEEM” spin-off pushes this song into soulful territories, breathing new life into a massively engaging set of performances from all three artists featured. There’s something about the combination of drill drums and soul vocals that never seems to fail, and “HAKEEM DRILL!” is proof — not to mention its historic merit, with Cash Cobain revisiting the rich, sample-heavy work of legendary producer forefather J Dilla. Lyrics about Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Coi Leray still hit like they did when “HAKEEM” first dropped on this one, and honestly, I think this was a perfect release to re-engage listeners on a great song. …

Slow Motion – [YN Jay]

Although YN Jay is an artist I haven’t quite found myself naturally gravitating towards quite yet, I keep hearing his name literally everywhere I turn, so it’s a name that I simply can’t ignore even if I wanted to for some reason. Sure, his nickname and personality might be a little out of left field, but that’s a big part of who he is as an artist and an even bigger reason why fans have been flocking in his direction over the past year or so. Earlier this Summer, Jay dropped off his project Coochie Chronicles, and after delivering various music videos to support the tape, he’s back for some more fun in a music video for his song “Slow Motion”. Taking us back to the streets of his hometown, the visual opens up with Jay and his friends in the street playing what appears to be a pick-up game of football. While he drops back to pass the ball, it’s quickly revealed that they don’t seem to be playing with a ball at all, replacing the pigskin with a stack of cash that is roughly the same size as the ball, acting as a slight flex before even more …

Ocean Prime – [BFB Da Packman] ft. [Coi Leray]

BFB Da Packman was one of the few artists I heard once and was immediately a fan for life. Usually, it takes a little bit of time for me to warm up to an artist I had heard nothing about and wasn’t familiar with, but my introduction was “Free Joe Exotic”, like it was for most people, and ever since I’ve been obsessed. That’s why, when I saw all of the hard work he was putting into his debut album Fat N***** Need Love Too, I was on the edge of my seat to see what he’d deliver. After hearing it, I was blown away and completely captivated by the unbelievable piece of work he had put together, and while it was obvious comical during many songs, there were also countless moments where his individuality and skills almost took your breath away more than I was ever expecting. While I’ve been running this project back time and time again since it was released, I was even more excited to see him team up with Coi Leray once again to shoot a music video for their amazing song “Ocean Prime”, which was directed by JDFilms. As it opens, BFB and a …

Boss Bitch – [Rich the Kid] ft. [Coi Leray]

Rich the Kid is an artist who needs no introduction at this point, and even though it has been a few years since songs like “Plug Walk” and “New Freezer” topped the charts, he’s not even close to being done creating hits. This was abundantly obvious when he released “Richard Millie Patek” not too long ago, and it’s clear once again with his latest single “Boss Bitch” which he taps Coi Leray for another unforgettable feature from the rising emcee. When it comes to the production from hitmakers TM88 and LNK, they utilize some floating, ambient synths that give a real airy feel to the record before crisp percussion and intriguing drums come in to set the tempo as everything comes together to sweep you off your feet and carry you away into the wind. As Rich comes in for the hook, he lists off all the qualities he needs in a woman in a very straightforward yet always energetic manner that he never seems to leave behind no matter what song is playing. He continues to list off qualities into his verse, bragging about all of the favors that his girl does for him all while questioning if your …
