BROKEN – [Spazi]

Earlier this week, I was put onto one of the most promising young talents in the entire music industry, and he has barely even put his mark on the scene yet. Spazi is a 17-year-old kid from Rochester, New York, and he is making some of the most incredible Hip-Hop and Rap music in the entire genre, which is high praise considering all of the unbelievable, world-renown talents that are recognized all across the board. There isn’t much information on the young artist, but he is already signed to a small label called Analogy Records, and the potential they see in him is obvious once you listen to his music. Although I might not know a ton about Spazi considering he is relatively new to making music in general, I can say with the utmost confidence that considering how strong his early offerings have been, it’s almost unfathomable to think about where he’s going to be in a year or two if he continues to keep up the good work. My introduction to the New Yorker was his brand-new full-length album BROKEN, and although I had pretty much zero expectations going in, I left the project with an unbelievable new …

Saint Laurent – [EGOVERT]

Although I follow a ton of independent artists and believe that many of them are going to go extremely far in their musical careers, few of these talents get me quite as excited as EGOVERT does. There is just something about the way he carries himself and doesn’t care about what other people think that makes his already incredible music even more remarkable, and I legitimately believe that he’s going to make it big at some point or another. I mean, at the end of the day when you listen to any single one of his songs, none of them sound even remotely the same and he is able to switch up styles in the blink of an eye, making sure that fans have no idea what to expect before pressing play. Most recently, the underrated superstar dropped off his latest single “Saint Laurent”, a song that is named after one of his favorite high-end fashion labels that he sports fairly regularly throughout his visuals and social media posts. Just a few seconds in, you’ll realize that the beat is made by none other than Mathiastyner, the hitmaker behind most of his up-tempo, chaotic offerings, and Dustin Cavazos, another incredibly …

cloak n dagger – [glaive] x [ericdoa]

The dawn of a new era for any sort of scene and/or genre has historically been marked by two or more like-minded artists coming together to cement it in stone. These events are certainly rare, but absolutely fascinating to observe as they occur. But even with that being said, no one can truly emphasize the magnitude of an event like this happening to a genre as all-encompassing as the grander state of pop music as a whole. Believe it or not, that event is beginning to take shape before our very eyes; and who better to fully realize this moment than pop music’s two faces of the future in glaive and ericdoa. These two have fostered a relationship that begins at just being genuine friends by themselves, and ends with the two coming together to shift the paradigm of pop music moving into the future. It is a once-in-a-lifetime type of chemistry, and one that without question should be noted as being as monumental as it is.  Right as these two were placed on the cover of Spotify’s wholly influential hyperpop playlist, they dropped a collaborative single entitled “cloak n dagger” along with an accompanying video. This moment represents a …

Cales – [Doxia] x [Kurtains] x [Wido]

The endless amount of versatility found within the current state of online music offers up a seemingly endless amount of sonic options. Because artists are so individualized yet still bonded together as a scene, so many fascinating avenues of collaboration have been and will continue to materialize as time continues. This fact is especially true when considering the influence that collectives play within some of these scenes across the landscape. Enter a trio consisting of Trial’s Doxia and Slowsilver03’s Kurtains and Wido — three acts who all have their own outstanding flairs about them as individual talents, but seem to always see their attributes amplified in collaboration with others.  These three have just added the utmost substance to that exact claim with their newest offering together entitled “Cales.” This track – beyond just being an ideal representation of the approach their scene exudes day in and day out – solidifies the chemistry between these three and their respective collectives in such a seamless and swift manner.  Kurtains absolutely shines on this track with one of the most memorable hooks to hit the public this year. They have seemingly mastered the art of the earworm up to this point in their …

Morning in America – [Hollyy]

Chicago’s talented retro-soul band Hollyy have released an incredible cover of Durand Jones & The Indications popular song “Morning in America.” Influenced by the thrilling vocals of Sam Cooke and Leon Bridges, as well as the indie rock stylings of Wilco and Whitney, Hollyy has emerged onto the scene with a sound as vibrant and holistic as the artists that comprise it. Gearing up to release their much anticipated first full-length project since 2018, Hollyy’s debut EP Miss the Feeling derives from a year’s worth of studio work. With the same gorgeous melody and organic instrumentation, it is respectable to declare Hollyy’s version equally impressive as the original. From a vocal and instrumental standpoint, Durand Jones & The Indication’s classic employs a bit more jazz, whereas Hollyy’s adds a slightly quicker pace with A1 tonal alteration. Both records demonstrate excellence of craft, and serve well on any day in particular for the listener. As both detail the various landscapes of America, the cover’s release is quite fitting given the recent inauguration. Aside from (unintentional or intentional) political alignment, it’s without saying that “Morning in America” is the perfect track to jumpstart one’s day. Stream Hollyy’s exceptional cover of Durand Jones & …

Loud + Clear – [4shley]

I realized that I’m pretty lucky to have met some amazing people and made such great connections in the music industry with my time at Lyrical Lemonade because a few of these people have put me onto some of the most talented and fascinating underground artists that exist in this day and age. While it can be overwhelming to go through all the submissions I receive in my email and social media DMs, having some homies help expedite the process is definitely a major plus. Most recently, my friend hit me up about an artist who goes by the name of 4shley, and although I had never heard this name before, I felt like it was necessary that I listened up and tuned in. After taking a look at the press release, I quickly learned that 4shley was born and raised in Los Angeles, and he’s legitimately as fresh in the industry as it gets considering he just started his music career late last year with the release of his first-ever song “Benihana” dropping in November. Although he’s basically a newborn in the game, you would have no idea after listening to his latest single “Loud + Clear” because it …

2doses – [2kthagoon] ft. [Lil Kickdoe]

The East Coast is full of underrated yet overlooked talent, and of course, I’m not talking about New York City. Places like North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and a few others are absolutely booming in a sense of having countless rising stars on their hands, yet the rest of the country seems to want to ignore this fact for some reason. One of my favorite parts of working with Lyrical Lemonade is I have the opportunity to bring some much-deserved recognition to these lesser talked about regions as well as the artists that are working tirelessly to put their towns on the map. If you’ve paid attention to any of my articles in the past, you should know the name 2kthagoon, and you should know it well. He has been one of my favorite underground artists of the past half-decade or so, and even though I’ve followed his career long enough to see him transform and level up, he’s nowhere near his final form. To me, this is unbelievable considering the music he is making now is arguably the best music he’s ever made, and these songs are some of the best tunes coming out of North Carolina in general, end …

Pressure – [Pollari]

It’s been far too long since I have heard some new music from Pollari, so I was thrilled when I saw that he just released a new track called “Pressure”. Pollari is a one of a kind artist who I have been rooting for a ton, he’s accumulated a die-hard fanbase over the years which has given him the leeway to play with his sound a bit. Pollari has done his fair share of experimenting with his music and I believe that it all has sounded really good, but one this joint here, he threw it back and gave something for his original fans as he tapped back into his old style. Stream this brand new offering below and if you like the track then share it with a friend! POLLARI (@kevinpollari) · POLLARI – PRESSURE! (prod. 6houl & Dreamr)

Big Dog – [Lil Eazzyy]

Lil Eazzyy had one hell of a 2020, and it might not be too outrageous to say that he had the best year musically out of most underground talents, especially in Chicago. What’s even crazier is the fact that his debut project didn’t even come out until the end of November, which means he really finished the year as strong as he possibly could have. Although his viral hit “Onna Come Up” came out months before, it was clear that Eazzyy was never planning on being a one-hit-wonder, and his EP Underrated definitely backed up his skills. Fresh off of his Lemonade Stand interview here at Lyrical Lemonade, he decided to revisit the final track on his November project entitled “Big Dog” and bring the song to life in the form of an inspirational as well as aggressive music video. In this visual, he got the 3DN Media production company and director Chris Vergara to bring some of his eye-opening words to life, and I don’t think I’m alone when I say that the results are absolutely wonderful. As the video begins, the camera pans in on Eazzyy as he is shown almost in an interview-like setting. Here, he discusses …

Wordsmith-[Dre Wave$] feat. [redveil]

Dre Waves is an artist who I’ve been itching to get on to our pages for some time now. Being from the DMV, I always get hype when I get to showcase people from my hometown who are doing it big and today, I get to do just that with an up and comer whose name y’all need to know ASAP. Dre is a 23-year-old Hip-Hop artist from Washington, D.C. who has been pretty active as of late which has caused me to play closer attention to everything that he’s been up to. Priding himself on his distinct vocal tone and impressive lyricism, Dre Waves is carefully crafting a lane for himself that is falling in line with other prominent artists from this east coast region. When you first turn on Dre’s music, you’ll notice how unique it is. There’s not much that sounds like it which is a huge advantage for someone who is looking to stand out in from of the pack. Today, Dre Waves is making his debut Lyrical Lemonade appearance for his latest song that is as impressive as they come. The new offering called, “Wordsmith” is the perfect encapsulation of his talent. With the fire …
