Buss It – [DCG Brothers]

It definitely doesn’t take a lot for me to get excited about the Chicago music scene, and it definitely doesn’t take very much to get me to write about it either. That’s not because my expectations are low or because I want to promote hometown artists even if they’re not totally polished quite yet. Instead, it’s because even the most underground, local emcees are doing their thing in an unignorable fashion, and as you move up the ladder of fame and fortune, these things don’t change, the overall sound quality of the music just seems to get better thanks to their access to more professional equipment. Ever since I found out about the DCG Brothers probably over a year or two ago, I was instantaneously mesmerized by their addicting personalities, their individual aptitudes, and most of all, their out-of-the-box take on Chicago drill music. It might’ve taken longer than I had hoped for, but I finally got the chance to see them this past weekend at the Summer Smash and let me tell you, Bsavv and Shun know how to put on an all-out clinic. Their energy seems to get brought to even higher levels in front of a crowd, …

Jungle Life – [DCG Shun] & [DCG Bsavv]

Chicago is one of those places that’s known for a few things. Outsiders look at it as a city built on sports, hot dogs, deep dish pizza, and Italian beef. While this is true to an extent, it’s also so much more than that, but only the locals seem to understand this fact. As a music fan growing up here, the drill scene took over such a prominent part of my life that I feel like it deserves to be included in that aforementioned list of things we’re known for, and although it seemed like there was a moment where this subgenre began to waiver or not be as impactful as it once was, people like the DCG brothers are here to breathe such new, entertaining life into it that there’s no denying its revival is in full force. They just take such a different approach when compared to other legends who came before them, and that’s why new releases like their latest record “Jungle Life” are so essential. Produced by their go-to hitmaker Spank on da Beat, this is actually a cut from their project of the same name, so the No More Heroes-directed music video is here to …

Stomp – [DCG Shun] & [DCG Bsavv] ft. [G Herbo]

Just when it seemed like the drill scene in Chicago was coming to a bit of a standstill, the DCG Brothers came in and made an insane splash with their modern take on a sound that put this city on the map in a huge way. It just felt like with New York City drill taking over the mainstream, the Chicago drill sound was starting to die down, and it is thanks to these two trendsetters that the subgenre is alive and well, at least in my opinion. They were on such a long, impressive streak of releasing singles and visuals, each one getting better than the last while also putting their names on the map more than ever, but one thing that fans were patiently waiting for and highly anticipating was the release of a project. Well, the wait came to an end late last week with the release of their debut mixtape Jungle Life which boasts 14 songs running just short of 39 minutes long, and man is this the wild ride that I was hoping for. Out of all these songs, though, I was definitely most captivated by their record “Stomp”, probably mostly because of the fact …

Old Opps – [DCG Shun] & [DCG Bsavv]

Although they might not be new names to anyone familiar with the Chicago music scene, DCG Shun and DCG Bsavv have been running the music scene for the past few months, and they’re a duo I can’t get enough of. Even though some of their songs might have a similar style, this sound is full of one-liners, aggression, and a hint of playfulness that puts a new spin on drill music, and I’m all here for it. Considering they have yet to actually drop a project, this doesn’t seem to be an issue considering they’ve amassed a notable fanbase that rides with them through it all, and after seeing their unforgettable performance a few weeks ago at the Summer Smash, that was all I needed to solidify these two hitmakers as stars in every sense of the word. Dropping new music is a regular activity for them, and that streak continues with their most recent Spank-produced record “Old Opps”, another straightforward heater that you’re not going to turn off anytime soon. Alongside this track comes a Diamond Visuals-directed music video that is as creative as all their other wild video concepts, and I had no choice but to. Share it …

Behind The Scenes of DCG Brother’s “House Party” music video

Last week when we were on set for a different music video, Cole pulled his laptop out in the middle of the set and uploaded the “House Party” music video by Chicago natives DCG Shun and DCG Bsavv. The visual has been performing pretty well considering how brand new the DCG Brothers are, and a few minutes ago, we decided to release the behind-the-scenes footage from that video shoot on our Lyrical Lemonade 2 YouTube Channel. This video highlights how this music video came together, trust me when I say that the shoot day was a scramble once our initial location got pulled, but the legend CB made it work like he always does. Take some time out of your Wednesday to check out this new BTS below!

House Party – [DCG Shun] x [DCG Bsavv]

DCG Shun and DCG Bsavv are two of the most talented new artists coming out of Chicago at the moment, but we here at Lyrical Lemonade have been big advocates for them for over a year now. Way back last summer, we brought them by the LL headquarters here in Chicago for an interview + just to chop it up & learn more about them. Since that day, we have had the utmost love + respect for these two, and I believe that they would say the same. Today, we just released our brand new music video for “House Party” by the DCG Brothers, and it’s definitely going to be one to remember when you look back at our catalog years from now. The story behind the day of this video shoot was an interesting one because originally we were supposed to shoot this at a frat house on the USC campus. We went to the frat house the day before to scout and everything was smooth, but when we showed up the day of, it fell through and we had to find a new location on the fly. Much love to our video production team for making a great …

It’s Up – [CP] x [DCG Brothers]

Time and time again, you will find me either on our website or having in-person conversations about how much budding talent is coming out of Chicago at the moment. I feel like this is the most potent class of young talent coming from the city since the 2012-2014 era, and a few of the rappers at the forefront of this movement are CP and the DCG Brothers, Shun + Bsavv. These emcees first got connected a couple of months ago and they have been working on plenty of new content ever since, but today, they blessed us with their first collaboration titled “It’s Up”. The first aspect of this track that will catch your attention is the monumental instrumental provided by Based1, before CP jumped on the beat and gave arguably his best musical performance to date. Soon after this, DCG Bsavv stepped up to the plate + gave a memorable feature, but untimely DCG Shun ended this one on a positive note with his fantastic contribution. These are three artists from Chicago that I believe you should keep a close eye on, watch this new music video below and be sure to give CP a follow on Twitter here!

On Me – [DCG Brothers]

I hope the music community has been paying close attention to what’s been going on in Chicago because we are having a massive amount of talented artists popping up left and right. There are several young acts who I believe have the potential to be superstars such as Serena Isioma and OG Stevo, but two of the acts that I am most excited about are DCG Bsavv and DCG Shun. These two brothers might as well be twins because they are so close in age, but they are two of the most energetic + superior rappers to come out of the city in recent memory. Their music videos are always top tier while their music never seems to disappoint, they are a promising young duo who I believe will be superstars someday soon. We also have the DCG Brothers performing at our Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash music festival in a few months here in Chicago, you can purchase tickets to that here.

P Block Stars – [DCG Msavv] [DCG Bsavv] & [DCG Shun]

If you’re from Chicago, chances are you’re extremely familiar with the DCG brothers by now. In fact, even if you’re not from the city, they’ve been blowing up at such an exponential rate that you’re probably familiar with them regardless. Most recently, the three brothers prove their dominance once again with the release of their latest hit song “P Block Stars”, and I couldn’t be more excited if I tried. Opening up with the instrumental, we are introduced to a very elementary, almost child-like sample that sounded too familiar to me, and after doing some thinking, I realized that I’m pretty sure they sampled the theme song to the popular children’s TV show, Arthur.  While this isn’t necessarily what I expected at all, the brothers have been known to break all the rules and deliver the unexpected, so when the tapping percussion and thunderous drums enter the picture, you know you’re in for a complete treat. Although I had no clue how they were going to handle this unique production, I wasn’t even slightly shocked to hear each of the three artists completely attack the beat with all their trademark personalities and even some assaulting bars that are sure to …

Whole Lotta – [Desto Dubb] ft. [DCG Shun] [DCG Bsavv] & [DCG Msavv]

It’s been a minute since I kept up with Desto Dubb’s music career, but that’s not to say I haven’t been paying attention to the other moves he’s been making. Ever since I found out about him through No Jumper when I used to watch the program years and years ago, he has transformed from an up and coming rapper into a business mogul with his brand That’s A Awful Lot of Cough Syrup which has been worn by some of the biggest names in the industry. Even with his brand’s success, I still love the fact that he’s keeping up with his music because it’s something he truly seems to enjoy, and I couldn’t resist talking about his latest song “Whole Lotta” when I saw he teamed up with all three DCG brothers to bring this hit to life. The instrumental itself uses some rotating, on-edge piano keys that are combined with rattling percussion and thumping drums for a Michigan-influenced beat that is as catchy as it is edgy. Although I’m not overly familiar with Desto’s music as of late, it seems like this style fits him perfectly considering his low voice and raspy delivery seem to just glide …
