Brad Pitt – [Foggieraw]

DMV emcee Foggieraw has been busy on the collaboration grind in 2019, with his last three Lyrical Lemonade appearances coming as part of joint efforts with TROSSTHEGIANT, Obed Padilla, and Flex Kartel, respectively. Now, he returns with a solo effort in “Brad Pitt” that puts his unique approach and charisma front and center. Obviously, Foggie’s voice is what jumps out first — that deep, croaking, flow is so unique — and more than just being different, it really captures his effortlessly cool persona. That stylish, swagger-filled personality is reflected in his bars, too, with lines that are clever and, at times, border on outrageous; a phone conversation with God and a wildly obscure reference to Freddy Adu, for example. The video brings sit all home with a colorful, off-the-wall feel, and even a soulful wine down to cap things off.

Oside Mamacita – [TROSSTHEGIANT] ft. [Foggieraw][Kadri Williams]

Lyrical Lemonade regular TROSSTHEGIANT is back with a brand new single that I’m sure will have a lot of people buzzing. Back in January, his single “Big Stuff” literally did big stuff after being featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday Playlist. Today, the Oceanside rapper has decided to bless us with a new offering that adds to his already strong 2019 campaign.  On this new one, entitled “Oside Mamacita”, TROSSTHEGIANT has tapped his homies Foggieraw and Kadri Williams to add their own personal flavor to this piece. The Erik Kingsley produced track starts off extremely strong and sets the tone for an amazing vibe that extends from start to finish. Only adding to this, Foggieraw absolutely murders the first verse with his unique style and memorable ad-libs, and TROSSTHEGIANT follows up with a solid verse of his own. With this, the way his lyrical flow perfectly bounces off of the stellar beat will have you putting this song on repeat for a long time, and equally as great is the ending appearance from Kadri Williams, who adds a nice outro, singing his own rendition of Girlfriend, by *NSYNC.  This track really has it all and I’m excited for you guys …

Deyssler – [Obed Padilla]

To add onto the list of Valentine’s Day releases, it’s only right that I highlight a project that deserves all of the attention in the world. If you haven’t heard of Obed Padilla, it’s about time you check out all of his music and put it right in your library, because the Oceanside, California native just dropped a 14 song album called Deyssler and quite honestly, it’s one of the most impressive projects I’ve heard this year. I use the word impressive because of Obed’s skill set. The guy does it all. He sings, raps, plays guitar, and produces without missing a single beat. That’s the best part about this offering; Obed is able to show off his versatility while painting a picture for all of his listeners throughout each and every track, and there are also some pretty dope appearances by artists including Asaiah Ziv, Foggieraw, Kaleb Mitchell, John Givez, and Saint Marcel, with each one complimenting the other in a refreshing and effortless way.  That said, this rising artist is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut today, but this definitely won’t be the last you hear of him. His latest album is filled with a variety of tracks that have something …

Aye, Aye – [Flex Cartel] x [Foggieraw]

The DMV talent pool right now is as diverse as it is deep. Need proof? Flex Kartel and FoggieRaw’s latest collaboration is exhibit A “Aye Aye.” FoggieRaw is one of my favorite upcoming emcees in the game. He has such a cool style. Obviously, his voice stands out–nobody sounds like him right now–but his pen his just as potent. With a blend of humor and vivid (and at times off-the-wall) bars; his effortlessly cool swagger is captured perfectly in his lyrics. With a completely different approach, Flex Kartel shines just as much. Where Foggie strolls, Kartel skates atop 88Wess’ smooth boardwalk. His charismatic, bouncing style gives the song a dynamic feel with their confidence being the cohesive link. Two completely differently coming together to create a fun yet potent effort. Can we get a full project, please?
