Kronos Freestyle – [Femdot]

Chicago leader Femdot took to social media recently to tease his fan base with a brand new freestyle record titled “Kronos”, and moments ago we were finally blessed with the final product! It’s clear that when Femdot stepped in the booth he just wanted to simply remind people why he is widely considered one of the best bar for bar rappers in the city, and after you listen to this track once or twice I assure you that you will be pleased with the final product. A great quality that Femdot has is his ear for outstanding production, often times this comes from his right hand man Charles Lauste aka DJ Chi, and sure enough they linked up yet again for this joint.

LL Presents: The Wemmymo Q&A

If you recall, when we released our third annual Top 50 Chicago Projects of the year list a couple of weeks back, there was a newcomer featured by the name of Wemmymo, who released a stellar new project titled Bittersweet in 2018. Admittedly, I was a couple months late to hearing Wemmy’s project after its initial release, but after the homie Femdot recommended that I give it a listen, I finally got around to it; now, Wemmy has been in my headphones every day since. I recently brought the Uptown, Chicago native through the Lyrical Lemonade office to chop it up and speak about plenty of interesting subjects such as Bittersweet, his inspirations, Chicago and so much more in our latest Q&A! Wemmy has an enormous amount of potential and he’s still in his teenage years, so I am fully expecting to see him continue to ascend as an artist and eventually become a major leader in the city. Take a few minutes of your time to learn about Wemmymo by listening to his project, watching his brand new music video, and checking out the Q&A below, and be sure to keep up with him by following Wemmy on Twitter here. …

While Chicago has been known as a reputable city in hip-hop for numerous years now, this revered position has not arrived without the constant innovation and hard work of the artists that so faithfully represent the prowess of their home city. It is these artists that we have to credit for this respected reputation, and we here at Lyrical Lemonade try to honor this in every way possible by constantly bringing new Chicago acts into our headlines here on our website. That said, 2018 has been yet another fantastic year for Chicago music, so we went ahead and compiled a list of our “Top 50 Chicago Projects” of the year. This now marks the third year that we have been putting out this list, and we believe that it’s safe to say this year’s list might just be the most solid one from top to bottom that we’ve seen yet. Thank you to our terrific writing staff for all of the hard work they have put in this year, I will be linking their socials below so be sure to contact them about getting featured on the website in the future.

Happy December – [Femdot]

There isn’t many Chicago artists that have had a better year than recently DePaul graduate Femdot, and he is putting the cherry on top of 2018 this afternoon with his brand new offering titled “Happy December” featuring Shawnee Dez! If you have been following Femdot’s career up to this point you know that this is common for Fem to drop these type of loosies, as he dropped “happyoctober” last year and “happynovember” a couple years back, but this new joint is my favorite of the three by far. Femdot has been one of the best story tellers & lyricists coming out of the city for a minute now and this new song furthermore backs that statement, he glided over the soulful Charles Lauste production as he reflected on how he got to this point. It’s been amazing to watch Femdot grow as an artist but he’s just getting started, take a few minutes to listen to this new record below!
