i – [Lil Skies]

One of the biggest success stories of 2018 was the rise of Lil Skies, who is making his return tonight with his brand new music video for “i”. You had a good feeling that this one was coming soon when you saw LL’s own Cole Bennett send out a tweet yesterday that read “skies & I haven’t dropped a video in a while”, and sure enough just about twenty four hours later we were blessed with the final product. Up to this point Lil Skies has released plenty of records that I, as well as many others have thoroughly enjoyed, but this is easily one of his most introspective songs yet. You will find him airing out a ton of issues that have been weighing on him on this song which is the introductory record to his brand new album Shelby that just came out as well, and although I am only a few songs into it now I predict this project being one of the biggest releases of the year. The sky is the limit for the Pennsylvania native and he is about to continue to wreak havoc on the industry with this new album, so please don’t waste …

Faucet Failure – [Ski Mask The Slump God]

Ski Mask The Slump God is a favorite here at Lyrical Lemonade but that’s certainly no secret, and he recently connected with Lyrical Lemonade’s own Cole Bennett for an amazing new music video for “Faucet Failure”. This new offering is the fifth time (if I am not mistaken) that Ski Mask and Cole have released a music video together, and they have a special chemistry when working together, they bring out the best in each other and I believe the fans would agree. In my unbiased opinion this is one of my favorite videos from not only Ski mask, but Cole in recent memory, which is a huge statement because he has been releasing sensational music videos lately for mega stars. It seems as if these two creatives simply went back to the basics and it feels so good, this one is going to be big.

Turning The Camera Around: Interviewer Spotlight

Even in the age of social media, where artists can constantly connect and speak to an endless number of fans with the click of a few buttons, the art of the sit-down interview will never be lost or, for that matter, replaced. From the intricate details of Nardwuar interviews to the knowledgeable conversations of Elliott Wilson, these interviews are what adds a dimension of background and personality to the musicians we know and love, and for that, they demand appreciation. Whether explaining obscure childhood stories, the meaning of albums, their influences, or any other plethora of topics, musicians tend to open up when paired with the right interviewer, and the benefit of these conversations is for all to enjoy. Interviews provide fans with background, insight, and nowadays, viral moments, offering up endless entertainment that satisfies casual listeners and stans alike. They allow artists an opportunity to communicate their messages and aspirations on a level far more profound than a simple tweet, and consequently, an opportunity to breathe new life into the music that soundtracks the lives of so many. Here at Lyrical Lemonade, we’re constantly posting new interviews with all of our favorite artists to learn more about the masterminds …

While Chicago has been known as a reputable city in hip-hop for numerous years now, this revered position has not arrived without the constant innovation and hard work of the artists that so faithfully represent the prowess of their home city. It is these artists that we have to credit for this respected reputation, and we here at Lyrical Lemonade try to honor this in every way possible by constantly bringing new Chicago acts into our headlines here on our website.
