Bond Hold – [DCG Shun] & [DCG Bsavv]

A young man’s game is a phrase that people use to describe various different things, but it feels like over the past few years, it’s a saying that has taken over the music industry. I think there are some caveats to this, though. I say that because while it seems like artists are getting introduced into the hip-hop world at younger ages, they really come into their own as they have bobbed and weaved through the industry for a couple of years. The DCG Brothers are a perfect example of this because the two siblings took the world by storm a couple of years ago with their aggressively youthful personalities, but I feel like they have only gotten better with experience and maturity. Their album Jungle Life which dropped back in April is the only thing you need to hear to see their growth as artists and as people, because they are on a whole new level than they were even last year when they were dropping single after single. While these songs were awesome, they weren’t going to be able to necessarily get people to take them seriously in music despite the fact that they were certainly being taken …

The Biggest – [DCG Brothers]

The Chicago duo DCG Brothers have been making their mark on the city for the past couple of years, what they’ve accomplished so far is amazing, and today they are back with a new record called “The Biggest”. Shun + Bsavv jumped over a menacing instrumental that was cooked up by the legend Gold Haze, and per usual, they each provided a solid verse while Bsavv held it down on the hook. It’s been awesome to see how much these two have progressed over the last several months, I am excited to see where they go from here. Take some time out of your day to watch this new visual below!

Rich Baby Daddy – [DCG Brothers]

I always love when new artists seem to draw inspiration from previous generations, and it makes it even better when these artists are from the same city as me. I was fortunate enough to grow up as the drill scene began to take shape, and even though my life was entirely different from the ruthless tales of the trenches that these rappers spoke about, there was just something about it that was undeniably addicting, and I obviously wasn’t the only one who felt this way. As time went on, new spitters began to blaze their own trails, but it’s hard to think of a duo that has done it any better than the DCG Brothers. Shun and Bsavv have both proven their worth in the industry at this point, and while. They clearly have that same assertive demeanor that previous rappers in the subgenre have become known for, but they add their own unique spin on things to show that it’s not a type of music being revived from the past, but rather a genre that is being created all on its own. The familiar narratives and personalities they both show off are never overlooked, but the way that they …

Get Money – [DCG Shun] & [DCG Bsavv] ft. [Moneysign $uede]

Not everyone has the same rise to fame or game plan of how to reach the spotlight, but these unique stories are things that I love to learn about, and I appreciate the events even more when I am there to witness them in real-time. Drill music is clearly a staple of the Chicago music scene’s history, and while it has taken many different forms over the years, it has always been a subgenre that I love to study because the saga behind it is just so intriguing. The DCG brothers are the latest success story coming out of the Windy City, but considering they dropped singles for well over a year prior to their mixtape Jungle Life’s release, it was certainly a different approach that not many other artists in similar situations opted to take. Going even beyond this, they also have never really recruited a ton of features compared to the amount of music they have put out. I think this is most likely because they have each other’s enthusiastic personalities to play off of, but also due to the fact that they didn’t need anyone else to get listens or views because they were the stars of …

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 …

YOTD – [CP]

Both a favorite of Chicago and us here at Lyrical Lemonade, CP blessed HIS listeners in his newest project titled YOTD (Year of the Dog). I was introduced to CP and his music within the last year, and was immediately intrigued by his style and consistency, which is further emphasized in YOTD. The album is an eight-piece project with constant heavy-hitters, with aggressive lyrics and flows that definitely point toward 2022 being CP’s year. There’s no questioning what you’re getting with each track; bass-heavy instrumentals, hardbodied lyricism and flows, and some ridiculously catchy hooks — my favorite ones coming in”WHY” featuring DCG Shun and BSav, “TRAPSTAR” featuring Warhol.SS and “DECENT” — that make it hard for anybody to skip a song. The themes of the project can be implied through the title, but are reinforced through the lyrics from each track. CP wants both new and returning listeners alike to feel how he’s coming in 2022, emphasizing his earned respect, solidifying his status as a force not to play with, and prioritizing the paper chase. I’m excited for his continued rise, as he impresses once again with this EP.  I’m equally as juiced to see him making another appearance at Summer …

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!
