YN Jay Interview: The Rise of The Coochie Man

“I did everything that all the rappers used to do like writing real bars and real raps and it didn’t work. I just had to wait my turn. I watched everybody around me shine before I had my turn to shine.” -YN Jay Whether you love the platform or not, we can’t ignore the amount of impact that Tik Tok has had on the music industry as of late. The app that caught the most traction during quarantine became the home to the latest music trends and dances, and a lot of people found new artists there. The amount it time it takes for a Tik Tok sound to trend on the app seems like it gets shorter and shorter, and rap songs are leading the charge of most of the viral songs. One artist in particular who found his rise to stardom from the app would be the upcoming Flint Michigan rapper–YN Jay. Most recognizable for his bars about coochie, YN Jay has been one of the many artists from Flint Michigan to take off and show signs of a very promising future. His buzz began around March of 2020 when the country was completely shut down, and many …

A Conversation with Cian Ducrot

Up and coming artist, Cian Ducrot was one of quarantines greatest surprises and just last week, I had the chance to sit down with the stellar talent who has quickly become one of the industry’s brightest spots. After inking a deal with The Darkroom / Interscope, the Ireland born artist has his eyes set on stardom and it is nothing less than achievable! Take some time out of your day to check out the conversation we had last week and learn more about what makes him so special! — Sam: I’m a huge fan of what you’re doing, so I’d love to have a conversation about your life and how music fits into it; So tell me about how your upbringing introduced you to music. Cian: Yeah, so I was raised by a single mom and grew up with my brother. Music kind of just strayed into my life because both of my parents were professional classical musicians in fact; so I was born into music and I fell in love with. I can’t remember not being absolutely in love with music. I would just sit under my mom’s piano and we would sit there all day and all night. …

GNAT – [Eminem]

Way back in March, Lyrical Lemonade’s own Cole Bennett connected with Eminem to shoot their first music video together for “Godzilla” featuring Juice Wrld, a visual that quickly became an instant classic in the LL catalog. Many fans of Lyrical + Eminem alike had the same thought after that, will these two ever work together again? Lucky for us though, these two have connected yet again, as moments ago they released their brand new music video for “GNAT”. This release came as a surprise as this was not hinted at prior, but I don’t think anyone is complaining about the sudden release, because the visual is just as good as their last one! It’s clear that Eminem + Cole have a special chemistry when it comes to creating music videos together, let’s all keep our fingers crossed that we see more material from them in 2021, press play below!

Brevin Kim Are Not Of This Earth [Interview]

There is something to be said about making what many consider “genre-pushing” or “experimental” art as a rising act in today’s crowded Internet-based music scene. It is certainly a daring, yet worthwhile manner to begin one’s career with, as just the slightest diverging take on a given genre can allow for something of a “unique niche” to be carved within this very scene as it stands.  But since arriving to this landscape just a short time ago, Brevin Kim have proven to be leagues beyond that artistic outlook. The brothers out of Boston are a one-two punch full of nuance, novelty, and intuition — all under a blanket of unrelenting passion and willingness to create music completely of its own. The two have continuingly refused to conform to any tag they have been labelled with thus far in their still-brief time as prominent musicians, and despite being closely associated with such acts as Dylan Brady and others in the rapidly rising field of glitch-ridden hip-hop and pop, their music sets them apart from just about any other act in the history of music, let alone 2020 by itself.  Cal and Bren Paulhus had been separated by over 1,000 miles throughout …

The Lobby – [Doley Bernays]

New York City has always been an absolute hub for all things Hip-Hop and Rap related, of course, and it is even considered to be the birthplace of Rap music. Since its early days, fans have always kept a close eye on the constantly blossoming scene to see who just might be up next and who is making music by their own rules rather than by somebody else’s. Although the NYC music scene is clearly much different than it used to be, there are a plethora of artists who are making sure that they’re not being boxed into a certain style or subgenre simply because of their geographical location, and Doley Bernays is the perfect example. Although I’m not overly familiar with his previous work, when I found out he was gearing up to release a project that had features from artists like Maxo Kream and 03 Greedo, I had to find out what a New Yorker would sound like with such unique artists like them. Luckily, he just released a video for the upcoming project’s title track “The Lobby”, and I totally see why he reached out to the aforementioned talents after tuning in. Ambient noises pair with West …

Jupiter – [Ronny J]

Rap music wouldn’t be even close to what it is today without Ronny J, and that’s a plain and simple fact. He is one of the most recognizable producers in the entire industry for more reasons than one. Even if you don’t hear the woman who says his tagline “Oh My God Ronny” at the beginning of his songs, his thunderous drums are typically a dead giveaway anyway. It’s crazy to think that although he might’ve helped pave the way for the South Florida underground scene to blossom, he has gone on to create hits with legendary artists like Kanye, Eminem, Travis Scott, XXXtentacion, and so many other icons. What most people don’t know, however, is the fact that he also makes music of his own, and this side of him is a totally different form than the producer. Sure, he makes his own beats and has his own original lyrics, but it has such a different vibe that is atypical of the hitmaker, and his solo music is definitely underrated, to say the least. Most recently, he dropped his sophomore effort Jupiter which was a follow-up to his 2018 album OMGRonny. While his first project might’ve contained numerous features …

Vote for “Godzilla” by Eminem + Juice WRLD for ‘Video Of The Year’

Despite the setbacks that everyone inevitably had to deal with due to the virus, 2020 has still managed to be a special and productive year for us here at Lyrical Lemonade. Back in March, Cole Bennett of LL released easily the best video he has created to date with “Godzilla” by Eminem + Juice WRLD. When he was gearing up to drop this video, Cole told a lot of us around the office that he believed that this visual would win a VMA, so you can only imagine the excitement around the office when it got nominated for ‘Video Of The Year’ last week! Although being nominated is a huge honor within itself, it would mean the world to everyone at LL to bring home the award. So we are asking our fans to visit the link below to vote for “Godzilla” by Eminem + Juice WRLD, you can vote every day, thank you in advance! VOTE FOR “GODZILLA” HERE!

Clap – [Don Toliver]

Without a doubt, I have Don Toliver as the biggest artist to watch out for in 2020. Of course with the pandemic, some artists plans have been reevaluated as far as touring and appearances, but regardless, Don Toliver had managed to make sure that his name has been resonating with fans. With the success of his debut album Heaven or Hell, numerous TikTok trends taking off, and his contributions on features this year with Eminem, Nav, and many others, it’s safe to say that Don Toliver is making his imprint very fastly in his career. Today, he premiered a surprise release of his song “Clap”, from the Road To Fast 9 Mixtape. The Fast & Furious franchise has been around since many of our childhoods, and as of late, they have begun to have some pretty substantial soundtracks to go along with the films. With F9 currently in production, the team has put together a soundtrack of music that is either inspired by, or featured in the film. This film being the last in the franchise, it was important that they casted a stellar cast of artists on the soundtrack–Don Toliver being one of them. On “Clap”, Don Toliver sticks with his usual producers Wondagurl and Frank …

All The Smoke (Remix)- [Phresher] ft. [Fivio Foreign] & [Stunna 4 Vegas]

I’m not sure how it has come to this, but I legitimately don’t think I’ve ever heard of Brooklyn rapper Phresher until today. I’m appalled and ashamed at this because he seems to be so versatile and well known in the music industry, but I guess I just kept my cheek turned for whatever reason. Considering he has worked with artists like Eminem, Remy Ma, DaBaby, Famous Dex, and a slew of others, I have no excuse as to how I haven’t even at least heard his name. Nonetheless, I’m ecstatic that I now know about him and have so much more music to dive into in order to truly grasp who he is as an artist. To begin with, however, he first captured my attention with the remix of his song “All The Smoke” which featured fellow New Yorker Fivio Foreign as well as one of the most entertaining young talents, Stunna 4 Vegas. The beat is made up of some altered trumpet sounding instruments along with chattering percussion and booming 808s. Phresher comes in right away for the hook bringing so much energy and liveliness to the track, starting it off on an extremely high note that I’m …

The Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady- [Kid Cudi] & [Eminem]

When talking about some iconic names in the world of Rap music, there’s never a discussion that ends without Eminem’s name being mentioned towards the top. He’s clearly a superstar in every single sense of the word and although some people may claim to lean towards his more classic offerings, there’s absolutely no denying that he hasn’t lost his skills or drive whatsoever. As for Kid Cudi, my personal favorite artist, I could go on for days describing my admiration for his music and stylistic choices over the years. Almost everything I’d say would most likely be something that someone else has said before because he’s been talked about so much, so I feel as if I should just get right into this super duo’s brand-new collaborative song entitled “The Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady”. As the beat begins, there is a mysterious aura that takes over the speakers with tiptoeing synths and the tempo of the track is a bit swifter than expected, which seems to add some determination to the offering. When the drums come in, they almost slow the pace down, but this is the perfect landscape for Kid Cudi to come right in and …
