Fly On The Wall – [Duffle Bag Buru]

If you are familiar with the Chicago music community or maybe if you read our Top 50 Chicago Projects list a couple of weeks back, then you know of the legend who is Duffle Bag Buru, and today the talented emcee is back with his brand new music video for “Fly On The Wall”. This record was not only the title track off of Buru’s latest body of work, this song was a fan favorite that his core fanbase have been waiting to see a visual for, and I believe it’s safe to say that this one lived up to the hype. I got to give some major credit to the video director Mooch, he helped bring Buru’s to life + together they made a memorable piece of art. You will see plenty of familiar faces in this visual such as fellow musical talents Ron$oCold and Supa Bwe, as well as some Lyrical Lemonade affiliates who you have been seeing for years now, so press play below & see what this one has to offer.

Top 50 Chicago Projects of 2019

Turning the page into the next decade, our fourth edition of the “Top 50 Chicago Projects of the Year” list marks a special occasion. From the first list until now, four years means more than just four years of picks. It tracks four years of growth from some of our favorite artists, and a chance to watch last year’s entries rise up the ranks and improve, one year after the next. This year, we’re welcoming several Chicago mainstays as well as a plethora of new faces. The constant between every pick? A strong representation of the talent in Chicago, solidifying the city as a front runner in the trend-setting landscape of hip-hop. If there’s any city presenting some of music’s premier faces, both old and new, it’s Chicago, just as we aim to capture on this list. That said, below is Lyrical Lemonade’s top 50 Chicago projects of 2019. Thank you to all of the artists working so hard to provide us with music, and here’s to a promising decade to come for Chicago music. From 2019 ’til infinity.

Ice Cream Drip – [CP] x [Duffle Bag Buru]

Anyone who has been following Lyrical Lemonade for some time more than likely already knows about Chicago spitters CP and Duffle Bag Buru, who are both LL legends in their own right, and they have returned with a brand new collaborative joint titled “Ice Cream Drip”. Right when you press play be prepared to be greeting by an addicting instrumental that was handled by fellow Chicagon CEO Beatz, who is no stranger to blessing some of the city’s finest with stellar beats, and together the trio created an ice cold new record that you would be crazy to skip on. Check out this brand new song for yourself below and if you like it then be sure to follow CP here.

LOOK – [Supa Bwe] Ft. [Qari]

Supa Bwe is only a few days removed from his sensational headliner in Chicago with his homies Qari & Mulatto (& Duffle Bag Buru + Reeseynem), but today the Chicago legend is finding himself back on our platform with the release of his brand new music video for “LOOK” featuring Qari. I can’t even begin to explain just how excited that I have been for this release, any true fan of Supa/Qari knows that them reconnecting about a year ago was a miracle itself, but to see them side by side making music together again damn near brings a tear to my eye. The video director and LL’s own Cole Bennett put it best though, adding: “This one means a lot to me, they (Supa & Qari) were some of the first artists I ever worked with when I started Lyrical Lemonade, I used to be at every one of their shows in Chicago and I always used to dream that we’d do a music video together. & now it’s here!” This is an important release here for us at LL but more importantly this is a big release for the city of Chicago man, let’s be sure to support …

Ain’t Shit Changed – [Supa Bwe]

Just about five minutes ago Chicago legend and Lyrical Lemonade favorite Supa Bwe released a brand new record titled “Ain’t Shit Changed” and it’s yet another great musical offering to come from Chicago today. Supa Bwe has always been ahead of the curve sonically and a trendsetter when it comes to using creatives flows + styles, and this new joint is the latest example of just that, he dabbled & experimented with a few different sounds here and I loved every minute of it. I am sure that this is just the start of a good string of music that’s about to be dropped on us by Supa Bwe in 2019, although this is just a loosie, I know he has some real heat tucked away that I am excited for the world to hear. Not only did Supa Bwe bless us with some new music tonight but he also announced that he will be headlining Reggies Rock Club in Chicago on August 9th along side Hurt Everybody + Duffle Bag Buru! You can purchase tickets to the show here!

Andre Freestyle – [Duffle Bag Buru]

Is it just me, or have you guys been noticing all of the great content we have been receiving from Chicago musicians recently? This week alone we were blessed with a ton of impressive material including Duffle Bag Buru’s brand new album Fly On The Wall that he dropped earlier today, but he decided that wasn’t enough, as he just released his brand new music video for “Andre Freestyle”. One thing that you can always count on from Duffle Bag Buru is that he will provide crisp & clean visuals time and time again, using unique & creative ideas that most of his competition lacks, and continuing to make himself stand out from the bunch. On this one here Buru connected with the good people over at Catch Rec Media who helped him bring this song to life, it’s a feel good & sunshine filled video that you shouldn’t sleep on! This release makes me wonder what other songs off of his new project that he is going to release music videos for, whichever he picks it will be hard to outdo this solid release, but I am sure he will find a way like he always seems to.

Fly On The Wall – [Duffle Bag Buru]

Chicago’s own Duffle Bag Buru has built up a solid reputation and catalog as one of the cities best emcees over the past few years, but until now there was something missing, a FULL LENGTH PROJECT! I have been waiting for this (probably impatiently) for such a long time and I even got the chance to tell Buru a few times that I wanted a full length from him, so you can only image my excitement today when he unleashed his brand new project titled “Fly On The Wall”. The first couple of things that caught my attention about this tape were the interesting title and the well put together cover art, before diving into the music and within the first ten minutes I was on the edge of my seat, it is chop filled with SLAPPERS one after another the whole way through. There is a total of fifteen songs on this project and Duffle Bag Buru displayed a nice variety of different sounds on this tape, everything from hard knocking bangers to more slow tempo & introspective joints. I know it’s early to say, but I would be expecting to see this tape on our “Top 50 Chicago …

Our 50 Favorite Kid Cudi Songs

Bravery in vulnerability. Honesty in the face of pain. Effortless trend-setting. Undying authenticity. Inimitable talent. Astonishing hooks, soaring highs, and heartfelt lows. Creative ambition. The list goes on. These attributes and so many more are what makes Kid Cudi a living legend. From his stature as one of the most sonically and aesthetically influential artists alive to an entire catalog of classic albums, mixtapes, features, and chart-topping singles, there’s no denying the sheer impact and importance of the Cleveland-bred artist. His contributions not only to music, but to mental health awareness, fashion, and even acting range over a broad palette of interests and ventures, all of which bring fans back to the one and only Scott Mescudi — a multi-talented star in every right and the kind of artist and human that only comes around once in a lifetime. For our team at Lyrical Lemonade and for countless others, Kid Cudi has soundtracked some of our best moments in life just as much as he’s saved and helped us in our worst. With this in mind, to say that Kid Cudi is an artist for all occasions is an understatement, and furthermore, to say that he’s touched countless lives is …

Just Say Thank You – [Supa Bwe]

Ladies and gentleman, the moment that we have been waiting for is finally upon us, as Chicago superstar Supa Bwe just released his highly anticipated project titled “Just Say Thank You”. This is a huge moment for Supa Bwe is his career, he has been building up his name and sound slowly but surely for years now, and it seems as if all of that hard work is really about to paying off in a big way. The features on this project come from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Duffle Bag Buru, Rexx Life Raj and last but certainly not least, Dounia. I enjoyed every single one of the seven tracks that were provided on this tape, but if I had to pick my favorite I would have to say it’s either “Rememory” featuring Chance or “BOOM BOOM BOOM” featuring Duffle Bag Buru. Of course the shining factor of this entire project was Supa himself, he created some of the best music of his entire life and included it on this masterpiece, congratulations on the release to Supa from all of us here at Lyrical Lemonade, we are proud of you. When we look back on the year of 2019 …
