Out thë way – [Yeat]

Yeat is undoubtedly one of the hottest new musicians in the entire world, he has established a cult fan base and is one of the more interesting artists in recent memory. One thing that Yeat also has is a close friendship with Lyrical Lemonade founder Cole Bennett, and today they are back with a brand new music video for his record “Out thë way”. This music video was shot two days ago, and Yeat was only on the set for less than twenty minutes total! In his own words, Cole Bennett said: “the entire video is one shot with a lively, imaginative world built around it. you can definitely feel my love for clowns and amusement parks through the atmosphere created”. With the understanding that Lyrical Lemonade is planning to eventually build an amusement park of its own, it makes sense that Cole would get some of those creative amusement park themes out on this one.   To close this article out, I am going to quote YouTube user Lootek, who commented: being a Yeat fan isn’t just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle, a reason to breathe, an escape from this cruel world filled with thieves. It’s art, the first …

WYO – [DCG Brothers] ft. [PGF Nuk]

Although drill music may have just started to pop off around a decade ago here in Chicago, it’s absolutely insane to think about how much it has impacted the entire music industry as a whole. Drill artists may have once been regarded by outsiders as aggressive, hostile music, but if you really listen to the words, it’s a story about the lives of these emcees. While there are clearly threats, violence, and antagonism throughout any drill song you tap in with that I may not condone myself, it is a part of the art and I feel like that needs to be respected in its own right. It also feels like this subgenre is one of the fastest moving and quickly transforming styles because usually you can track the evolution of a style and see how it has progressively changed, but that’s tough to do with drill considering how recently it was conceived and how much it has changed in only a handful of years. Classic drill and songs that came from the early 2010s will never go away luckily, but the new wave of the subgenre is here, and it is spearheaded by emcees like the DCG Brothers. These …

About a month ago, LL founder Cole Bennett was in London shooting a music video for Central Cee, and randomly, fellow Chicagoan LUCKI just happened to be in London simultaneously. It was only fitting that Cole + Lucki connected to shoot a music video while they were out there, and now we are happy to bring you the brand new visual for “COINCIDENCE”. This music video was entirely shot on iPhone, something that CB has been doing more and more to challenge himself, you wouldn’t be able to tell though because it came out extremely clean. Funny enough, this is the 3rd music video that LL has shot for Lucki, but it’s the FIRST that has officially come out on the main channel. To celebrate this release, we released a 7-year-old Lucki music video for “DOUBLE CHECK” on our Lyrical Lemonade 2 channel earlier this week, so check it out if you haven’t already. Take some time out of your Friday to watch this brand new visual below!

F*CKEDUP! – [Kelo of Dopeness] & [Kaidontrap]

As I have gotten older, I have realized the importance of honesty and being transparent with everyone I interact with, even if it’s online. I just feel like there are way too many people who tell simple lies or just aren’t as honest as they could be, and this leads down a path of dishonesty and overall untrustworthiness. The same goes for these articles, because although. I do my best to get the facts and give my genuine opinion of the songs I write about, the simple fact is that I can’t always get all of the details right, so I either don’t include them or write down something I heard or surmised rather than something that I definitively know is factual. I try my best to not let this happen, but I say all of this because I have written extensively about Kelo of Dopeness’ music in the past, and most of the time I refer to him as a Chicago artist. Well, since my last article, it has come to my attention that he is actually from Los Angeles, so I had to clear the air and set the record straight. Regardless, he does so much work for …

Burning Up – [Nardo Wick] x [The Kid Laroi]

Less than a week after releasing Central Cee’s new music video that has amassed nearly 10 million views, Cole Bennett of LL is back again, this time with a brand new music video for “Burning Up” by The Kid Laroi and Nardo Wick. This video was shot a few weeks ago in Norway while Cole was overseas shooting a string of visuals, and it lined up perfectly because it fell on a date that Laroi had off of his European tour! To the common musical listener, this collaboration may seem unexpected, but to me, it’s the textbook “I didn’t know I needed this until I heard it” type of song. Laroi and Nardo complement each other very well and throwing the vision of Cole on top of that significantly amplifies the moment. Take some time out of your Tuesday night to watch this brand new visual below!

Doja – [Central Cee]

If you’ve been even the slightest amount of time on the internet over the past few weeks, then you have likely heard Central Cee’s snippet for his song “Doja”, because it’s been going extremely viral. When you have a special talent like Central Cee and connect him with a visionary like Cole Bennett, it leaves fans pondering the kind of impact that they can have together, and if you ask me, I believe that this collaboration can be one of the highest performing Lyrical Lemonade videos of the last few years. If I am being frank, I think that this music video has the potential to be a Top 20 Lyrical Lemonade video of all time. I can see this one hitting 200+ MILLION views in due time, but only time will tell.  Watch this brand new music video below and get familiar with this hit record from Central Cee, it’s only a matter of time before it’s incredibly high up on the charts!

Minions: The Rise of Gru

Lyrical Lemonade has been around for not even a decade, and any follower of LL since 2013 knows that we started as a music blog that blossomed into a multi-faceted multimedia company. Most of our fans know that we don’t do collaborations often, but when we do, it’s usually something that makes a memorable moment. I’m sure at no point did anyone ever expect Lyrical Lemonade to collaborate with the Minions, but here we are! Not only did Lyrical Lemonade founder Cole Bennett direct the trailer for the new Minions movie, but he also convinced them to have Yeat create the soundtrack to it! This is one of the most exciting moments in my time at Lyrical, this is an amazing moment and I hope that we all can take a minute to appreciate it.   Oh yeah – Minions x Lyrical merchandise collab tomorrow!
