SEARCH FOR: FENIX FLEXIN

Baby – [DJ Scheme] ft. [Iann Dior]

DJ Scheme has long been a close friend and acquaintance of ours here at lyrical lemonade, and like a fine wine, he continues to only get better with age. At the beginning of December, he dropped off his debut album FAMILY and it was an absolute smash hit, at least in my mind. He was able to bring all different styles and sonic landscapes to life throughout this 17-song album, and every time I go back and revisit it, I seem to be more and more blown away. Obviously, the features he selected on this project help Scheme provide different stylistic choices, but every single guest plays such an important role in this album’s success. He got names like Skrillex, Joey Bada$$, Ski Mask, Lil Yachty, Ty Dolla $ign, Fenix Flexin, $NOT, and too many others to name in this sentence, but I never imagined seeing some of these talents on the same album let alone the same song. One of my favorite cuts off of the project is definitely “Baby” featuring Iann Dior, and although this is a much more soothing, heartfelt ballad than what we’re used to hearing from Iann, he takes the baton and runs with it. …

10 Toes – [Fenix Flexin]

Ever since Fenix Flexing announced that he was going to venture off into his own solo career in music, I was a little bit sad considering Shoreline Mafia has always been one of my favorite West Coast groups, but I knew that Fenix was definitely going to have no problem holding his own and continuing the legacy that the mafia helped him establish. Most recently, he decided to drop off a brand-new song entitled “10 Toes” as well as a wonderfully clean new music video to pair with it. This song, produced by the one and only West Coast hitmaker Low the Great, is the first single off of his upcoming solo project, and after hearing the record, my hopes couldn’t be any higher for a fully cohesive effort from Fenix. Low utilizes an extremely deep, bouncy, and vibrant bassline, some mysterious synths, and clean percussion to pave the way for a mysterious record that seems to place Fenix in the shadows, lurking around and taking care of business by his own rules. When he comes in for the hook, his words just bounce effortlessly over the instrumental as only Fenix knows how. Once we arrive at his verse, he …

FAMILY – [DJ Scheme]

If you’re a fan of Lyrical Lemonade then there’s no doubt that you are familiar with the living legend that is DJ Scheme. The DJ turned Producer has taken his talents up a serious level with the release of his highly anticipated debut album FAMILY. There is a reason why artists flock to Scheme, he is one of the most genuine souls in the music industry and the album’s stacked tracklist proves exactly the type of reach he has built purely off his talent and grind. If you’ve ever seen a live set from DJ Scheme, you’ll know the ferocious energy he brings to each and every stage he touches. The crowds almost instantly dissolve into insanity, mosh pits opening throughout crowded venues with audiences thirsty to lose themselves to the madness that is “Take A Step Back”. Damn, I can’t wait to see that again soon. Off the strength of 2019’s Preseason EP, we saw what Scheme was capable of as a producer. With a small sample, we knew that the debut album he would eventually release would be a perfectly curated collection of collaborators that reflect the relationships he has built throughout his career of touring with some of the biggest …

Alley Oop – [MBNel] ft. [Fenix Flexin]

Obviously, there’s an overflow of talent pouring out of the California music scene, but this is nothing new if you’re even remotely familiar with music in general. When it comes to the various Rap acts hailing from the coastal state, I’ve always been a fan of all the different vibey, synthy offerings that have come out over the years, which actually makes it tough for me to single out an individual artist who I favor over the rest. While MBNel is a slightly newer name for me, he has quickly risen through the ranks and become one of my absolute favorite talents due to the incorporation of his individualistic backstory and sheer skills, among many other things. One of the songs I was most excited for when I saw the tracklist for Child of the Trenches II prior to its release featured Fenix Flexin, one of the most notable West Coast acts you can think of, and this record, called “Alley Oop”, exceeded any of my expectations tenfold. Luckily, the duo linked up once again to bring this song to life in the form of a brand-new music video, directed by Carrington, and I couldn’t be more excited. As the …

Child of the Trenches 2 – [MBNel]

Although I was just put onto MBNel a few weeks ago, I couldn’t be more grateful for the music I’ve been able to experience. Hailing from Stockton, California, this Filipino-American emcee has clearly lived a tough life but rather than using music as a platform for revenge or threats, he instead uses it as a source to vent about all of the eye-opening and life-changing experiences that he has had to go through. Although his life might have gotten a bit better since making a name for himself in the music industry, he’ll never forget his roots or the things that molded him into the man he is today, and that’s extremely evident in every single song he drops. Not too long ago in July, the California spitter dropped Child of the Trenches, a 6-track EP that dives head-first into the battels he dealt with in the streets while also offering up optimism, courage, and tenacity that allows listeners to look at the glass half full rather than the other way around. Thankfully, he’s back with a follow-up to this incredible project with the EP’s second edition, Child of the Trenches 2, and this project proves his story wasn’t even …

Change Ya Life – [Shoreline Mafia]

If you’ve paid any attention whatsoever to the Hip-Hop movement taking over California for the past few years, you should be almost too familiar with Shoreline Mafia by now. They’ve been making more than just waves for years and at this point, they’ve amassed a huge following all over the country. After releasing multiple mixtapes as a group as well as individual songs and projects, they decided to come together one final time and release their debut studio album Mafia Bidness, which is expected to be released at the end of this month. While this news is exciting, it’s also bittersweet because it marks the departure of one of the group’s standouts, Fenix Flexin. I’m excited to see what he’ll do in his individual career, but I just love the chemistry that the group has together, so it’s going to be different not seeing him on any of the Mafia’s projects moving forward. As we prepare for the highly anticipated release of the group’s forthcoming album, however, we have been blessed with a new single entitled “Change Ya Life”. I realize that this came out on Friday, but it was a holiday weekend and I was listening to this track …

RIP Mac P Dawg – [Fenix Flexin]

It seems like more and more often in recent memory, the world of Rap music is, unfortunately, saying goodbye to some of its most promising talents. Although I wasn’t extremely familiar with Mac P Dog prior to his untimely passing, the overflow of grieving and homage being paid to the late artist gave me no choice but to catch up on what I was missing. After taking some time to dive into his discography, I quickly realized he truly had a talent that doesn’t come around often and he will definitely be missed not only for his music, but his overall persona with the fact that he was a stand-up, honest, and trustworthy friend. It’s no secret that Mac was beyond close with Shoreline Mafia and although Fenix announced that he’s going to be venturing off to do his own thing, he wanted to drop a meaningful song to pay homage to his dearly departed friend. “RIP Mac P Dog” opens up with sliding, West Coast synths, crisp snaps, and concise bass drums. Fenix’s voice is just always so smooth, standing out on any West Coast anthem he creates. While this song is clearly more introspective and emotional, he still …

Yung Tory has been become one of the most talked about artists here in the Lyrical Lemonade office, he has been dropping a ton of good music and today he is back with his brand new music video for “Netflix & Chill” featuring Fenix Flexin of Shoreline Mafia. They joined forces with music video director @Juddyremixdem who brought this record to life perfectly, making for yet another dope visual on Tory’s growing list. Watch this brand new music video below and get lost in Yung Tory’s glorious vocals!
