SEARCH FOR: DENZEL CURRY

Ahhhhh – [wifisfuneral]

Although other parts of the world are more widely renowned for being major destinations for hip-hop artists and rappers, I can confidently say that Florida is one state that has bred a completely different type of musician. So many underground legends have come from the southern mecca, and I would even go as far as to say that the underground movement that later turned into the “SoundCloud Rap” era began there and never really left. The different levels in Florida are insane, including household names like Denzel Curry, Rick Ross, and Kodak Black. Then there are underground legends like the late XXXtentacion, Pouya, and wifisfuneral, SoundCloud era artists that have somewhat died down like Smokepurpp and Lil Pump, well-known yet still not quite mainstream emcees including $NOT, Cochise, and Ski Mask the Slump God, and the list could go on forever. What stands out the most to me is the fact that I could listen to almost any single one of these spitters and not only thoroughly enjoy myself, but be transported back to a different part of my life where they were some of the only people I was bumping. Although some of these artists have careers that are …

High As I – [Shawn K]

One thing you don’t often hear about in the hip-hop world is someone being selfless or not in it for attention. If you really take a second to think about it, most people get into music either for the money, the fame, the attention, and more often than not, a mixture of all three. Rarely does someone work in the shadows without asking for an ounce of the spotlight, and if they do claim this before putting in the work, they might change their mind once they see someone else basking in the glory that they had a part in building. Cleveland’s Shawn K is the one exception that I can think of because he opted to take a break from releasing his own music to be a vital part in the creation of some of your favorite artists’ endeavors without ever looking to be the face of the campaign. Shawn has played a part in things such as the Revenge of the Dreamers III collaborative album, Denzel Curry’s Melt My Eyez See Your Future effort, Meechy Darko’s (of Flatbush Zombies) Gothic Luxury, and even EARTHGANG’s GHETTO GODS album. When not directly creating music, he has acted as an A&R …

GEEWIZ + 8TEEN – [454]

If there’s two things I love in this world it’s new music from 454 and hydrangeas, and today I’m lucky enough to get both – at the same time no less! This week the Florida plugg phenomenon returns with two self-produced new singles ahead of his upcoming mixtape Fast Trax 3. “GEEWIZ” and “8TEEN” are psychedelic and energetic bangers sporting hypnotic vocals and bright, bass-laden mixes to top off your summertime playlist. It’s been over a year since 454 released his last Fast Trax mixtape in the wake of his debut LP 4 REAL, but since then our hero has had anything but a quiet year. Between dropping a handful of singles, touring with Aminé, and appearing on both the last Denzel Curry album and Tony Shhnow album, 454 has been keeping his momentum strong as we enter the rollout for Fast Trax 3. His music has never felt this polished or concentrated, so if you’re a fan of 454, you may be in for a treat once he finally decides to drop. Until then, you can catch me spinning “GEEWIZ” and “8TEEN” until my ears bleed.   Check out the visual for 454’s “GEEWIZ + 8TEEN” below:

Jflexxx Returns With His Latest Single “Blackout”

Over the years, Florida has received a lot of recognition for discovering new artists. From Kodak Black, Rod Wave, Ski Mask The Slump God, T-Pain, Rick Ross, Denzel Curry, XXXTentacion, and many others, Florida has contributed in a tremendous way to the Hip-Hop scene and theres more to come. JFlexxx also known as Jeff Moss, is a new face to keep your eye out for in 2022. Growing up with a father who was a DJ, played a major role in JFlexxx being introduced to the music scene. Being influenced by some of the biggest names in hip-hop such as Drake, JuiceWrld, Eminem, and Young Thug, it was only a matter of time before the rising artist decided to bet on himself. JFlexxx began his career nine months ago, and he already received some notable accomplishments. The Florida rapper had the opportunity to collaborate with YNW BSlime on “Demons” with 226k and counting views on Youtube. His first single, I Done Got Rich, received over 100,000 streams in less than a month. His most-streamed single “Fate“ has more than 2.2M streams on Soundcloud and 70,000 monthly listeners. Most recently, he shared his latest single titled Blackout. “Blackout gives me a …

Kevin – [AG Club]

As the saying goes, you learn something new every day, and today, I learned that AG Club stands for Avant Garde Club. There’s actually a lot I don’t know about with regards to this group because I am admittedly late to the party, but this gets me even more excited about tapping in and learning all about them after hearing so much about the acclaimed squad and all of the remarkable things they are doing. Featuring a total of 14 members across various creative outlets, the Bay Area collective is breaking the mold of what the rest of the world believes is West Coast hip-hop and considering they’re a one-stop-shop for all things music, filmmaking, photography, content, and design, there is not a single facet of this unit that should be ignored. After collaborating with names like A$AP Ferg and NLE Choppa as well as going on tour with icons like Pusha T and Denzel Curry, it seems like there isn’t anyone that doesn’t mess with AG Club, and once you listen to their music, you’ll know exactly why. Back in June, just about a month ago, the crew put out their Isaac Rose, Niko Oroc, Sam Aether, and Mico …

Watch Denzel Curry’s NPR Tiny Desk Concert

I try to avoid writing about anything that isn’t a newly released song, video, or album, just because I feel like that’s where I excel and that is what makes up the majority of our content here on the Lyrical Lemonade blog. Some artists just have this star power, though, where no matter what they do, whether it’s an interview, cameo, performance, or anything else, I just have to tune in. Denzel Curry is one of those people because even though I admittedly might not listen to him all day every day as I do with some other emcees, there are more than enough records of his that I thoroughly enjoy and listen to pretty regularly. Aside from this, I have written about performances on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series just because they seem to get everyone in the office to perform no matter what the genre is, and even though some genres can work a little better than others, it’s always so interesting to me when I get to see some emcees in an element that might not be very native to them. He is someone who is known for not only his incredible lyricism and wild bars, but …

Behind The Scenes of Dot Da Genuis’s “Talk About Me” Music Video

enjoy the latest behind-the-scenes episodes of our new music video for “Talk About Me” by Dot Da Genuis, Kid Cudi, JID, and Denzel Curry 🙂

Talk About Me – [Dot Da Genius] ft. [Kid Cudi] [Denzel Curry] & [J.I.D.]

Dot Da Genius is a legend in this industry, and if his name is new to you, you might want to do some research before you speak any further. I mean, he was the mastermind behind Kid Cudi’s 2008 hit “Day ‘n’ Nite” as well as a variety of other Cudi records, and he has also worked with world renown artists including Nas, Denzel Curry, Lil Nas X, and plenty more. Producers just don’t seem to get the same spotlight as emcees because their work is often done behind the scenes, so when I saw that Dot teamed up with the captain of our ship Cole Bennett, I wasn’t wasting any time to peep the magic that was brought to life. “Talk About Me” features Kid Cudi, Denzel Curry, and J.I.D., so even though this is a trio I didn’t expect to come across in a million years, they work so incredibly well over Dot’s insanely poignant instrumental, and the video is one of the best pieces of art I have seen all year. There is a mixture of black and white scenes sprinkled in throughout, but even in the clips that contain color, it seems like the vibrancy is …

Walkin (Remix) – [Denzel Curry] & [Key Glock]

The past few months have been anything quiet for Denzel Curry. Between the release of his latest LP Melt My Eyez, See Your Future, an EOD Coachella performance, and an upcoming deluxe, there are a lot of things going on in the world of Zel – and today fans are treated to their first taste of things to come. Joining forces with Memphis legend and bag enthusiast Key Glock, the duo collide on the long-awaited “Walkin” remix taken from Denzel’s forthcoming MME,SYF deluxe edition. Released just in time for your summer function, Denzel Curry and Key Glock’s take on “Walkin” is a strong upgrade to what was already one of the year’s best hip-hop releases. With their mutually dejected-yet-high energy performances, Key Glock and Denzel Curry is the collab I never knew I needed until today – and I’m praying that this isn’t the last time they hop on a track together. While the former just released his Yellow Tape 2 Deluxe, Denzel Curry’s is still yet to come – so you’d be wise to keep an eye on him as spring turns to summer. Check out Denzel Curry’s “Walkin” (Key Glock Remix) below:  

from me 2 you – [454]

Fans of 454 rejoice! This week we have finally been blessed with a new track. “from me 2 you” is the newest banger from the Florida rapper, marking his third release of the year following the previously-dropped singles “SKITTLES” and “GATORLAND”. Though our king has been a bit radio silent this year, 2022 has been a pretty busy year for the young rapper. Though 2021 saw 454 dropping two mixtapes and being featured on Frank Ocean’s Homer website, 2022 has seen 454 tour with fellow Floridian Cochise and Aminé in addition appearing on Denzel Curry’s “SaNJURO” and even playing Coachella. The grind never stops though, as this week fans are graced with “from me 2 you” – a dreamy and minimalistic plugg track that slowly morphs into a more cosmic and laid-back banger primed for your upcoming summertime rotation. Self-produced and self-mixed, “from me 2 you” is hopefully a harbinger of more music to come, but I’m totally fine with waiting. Patience is a virtue that can only be earned the hard way – so if this is your first introduction to 454, consider this the perfect time to do a deep dive through his catalog. Check out 454’s new …
