Chopstix – [Smokepurpp]

Okay, I know I have pretty much been writing about every single Smokepurpp release that has come out, but that’s because his rollout for Florida Jit was somewhat lengthy and very eventful. Smokepurpp has always piqued my interest with his projects because he typically covers a wide range of sonic sounds and styles, and the aforementioned project is no different. I was thoroughly impressed with most of the tracks on the album, whether they contained features from artists like Yung Nudy, Denzel Curry, Rick Ross, or Jack Harlow, but I also enjoyed his solo efforts as well. I think Smokepurpp’s ability to put together quality projects is honestly underrated, and it should definitely be praised much more than it currently is. In order to continue the hype behind the album, Purpp decided to drop a short visual for the project’s closing track “Chopstix”. While this song isn’t necessarily one of my go-to tracks off of the album, it made me rethink my stance after watching the video. The beat is made up of eerie, creeping synths, crashing percussion, and, as with the majority of the album, 808s that can and will bust your speakers if you turn the volume up …

What’s Poppin (Remix )- [Jack Harlow] ft. [Lil Wayne] [DaBaby] & [Tory Lanez]

It’s pretty obvious that as soon as Jack Harlow released the original version of “What’s Poppin” back in January, it was a success right off the bat. Although he had been making bangers for a few years, this was the song that really turned some heads and changed the trajectory of his career. As a fan, I can’t say how happy I am that this was the case because ever since he’s been one of the most consistent artists with regards to putting out hit after hit. His smooth, energetic flows mixed with some bouncy instrumentals and just simply the party vibes that exude from within him all come together on almost every single one of his songs to truly show his star power. Back to “What’s Poppin”, though. When a song like that becomes as massively successful as it did, artists big and small want the chance to grace the beat and see if they can come up with their own rendition to join in on the fun. While there are countless unofficial remixes that have been released independently, legends like Lil Wayne, DaBaby, and Tory Lanez decided to finally join Jack for the official remix, and I don’t …

Pop Shit – [Smokepurpp]

I feel like I’ve been writing about an overflow of Smokepurpp releases recently and I’m not complaining about that either. His upcoming album Florida Jit has been gaining tons of momentum as we’re led up to its release, and every one of the singles he has dropped has gotten me even more excited to finally see the finished product. There’s a bunch of speculation and unanswered questions surrounding the project and the biggest question of them all is when exactly is it going to drop? It was supposed to come out in May and then got pushed back, but no definitive date has been released to fans from what I could tell. Other theories surrounding this album include the fact that it’s entirely produced by his friend Ronnie J, it has features from artists like Young Nudy, Rick Ross, and Jack Harlow, among others, and a few other unanswered rumors. While it’s not surprising to be left in the dark when it comes to anticipated album releases considering we see that happen in this industry more often than not, but it always just puts my mind at ease knowing that a project is going to drop exactly when the artist …

No Hero Freestyle – [Jack Harlow]

During this somewhat monotonous and uneventful quarantine period, people have had to find new ways to occupy their free time. For some, it might include painting, baking, or playing video games, while for someone like the rising star Jack Harlow, it only makes sense that he puts his musical talents to good use with a freestyle. While a lot of older Hip-Hop heads claim that freestyling is a lost art, and for a lot of artists it might be, Jack was excited to throw his hat in the ring and prove that he’s not someone that should be included in that category. It also couldn’t hurt to remain productive and hone in on some lesser-used talents in order to perfect them as much as possible during this slow period of time. For his very impressive “No Hero Freestyle”, Jack spits over some intergalactic sounding synths and decides to go with a more boom-bap style of percussion, which is different than the normal production he might typically be heard on. In fact, nothing about this freestyle is very characteristic of the Kentucky-born rapper, who typically uses slightly more vibey, West Coast beats that allows him to demonstrate just how smooth his …

Sweet Action – [Jack Harlow]

The Louisville rap star that is Jack Harlow has been making tons of noise in the rap game as of late. After dropping his debut album back in 2019, ever since that moment his rise to the top has been going at full force with no sign of slowing down at all. After months of going on tour and making many club appearances, his face is one to be remembered–for it will be much more prominent in the years to come. Today, he released his latest body of work, Sweet Action–the lead single of the project being”WHAT’S POPPIN” accompanied by a Jetsonmade beat, and a video directed by Lyrical Lemonade’s own, Cole Bennett. Coming in at only seven tracks and 17 minutes long, Jack never strays away from always letting his fans and soon-to-be fans know what he is capable of right off the bat. For those who have not witnessed his previous bodies of work, this project will serve as the perfect introduction to the array of Jack’s ability of music making, that is, for now of course. The track “I Wanna See Some Ass” is another collaboration with the young and talented producer Jetsonmade. This track serves as …

What’s Poppin – [Jack Harlow]

Jack Harlow is somebody who we have been huge fans of here at Lyrical Lemonade over the past couple of years, he is no stranger to our audience considering he has performed at the Summer Smash as well as our Christmas Show, and today Jack Harlow is here with his brand new Cole Bennett directed music video for “What’s Poppin”. Jack Harlow first teased this one to his massive fanbase yesterday via social media, a clip that showed the first elven seconds + gave a preview to this HARD instrumental, but it gets so much better one you hear the way that Jack attacks the beat for not only the start of the song but the entire duration. If you hear this song just once the addicting melody is for sure going to get stuck in your head for the rest of the day, it’s one of my favorite tracks from Jack to date and I am sure it will be one of yours too! Watch this brand new music video below and if you haven’t subscribed to the LL YouTube channel yet then be sure to do so, and also make sure that you give Jack Harlow a follow on …

Jack Harlow’s ‘Confetti’ Validates He’s a Jack of All Trades

Post by Lee Mcintosh When it comes to hip hop, regional dominance plays a major factor in the overall impact and imprint that a region leaves on the culture. New York, LA, Chicago and Atlanta being the most recent, all have had numerous instances where artists seemingly sprouted all at once. However, it isn’t everyday that we hear an artist come out of Kentucky (the last being Bryson Tiller) and claim the throne as one of the best new artists to come out in this generation. All that being said, Louisville native Jack Harlow is here with his latest project, Confetti, and he’s ready to let the game know that he’s here and he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. — The Backstory Although many people are just now getting hip to Jack’s music, he is far from a “new” artist, per se. His career began as early as 2015, when he would release projects under the Private Garden indie label that he co-founded. Years of playing the independent game finally paid off for Jack when he was introduced to the legendary DJ Drama. The pure talent impressed Drama enough to sign Jack to his Generation Now label under Atlantic Records — the …

Thru The Night – [Jack Harlow] ft. [Bryson Tiller]

Dipping your fries in a frosty. Arya and The Hound. Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart. Sometimes it’s the unexpected blends that result in the most interesting flavors. Though they share the same hometown, I never would have expected (or even thought of) Jack Harlow and Bryson Tiller hopping on the same track. With his latest video-assisted offering, “Thru The Night,” however, Harlow recruits the fellow Louisvillian and the result is an absolutely stellar effort that might just catapult him into stardom. As is par for the course for Harlow, he brings youthful energy. Normally, it’s packaged in a more gritty presentation, but here, when paired alongside Tiller’s glossy style and a sped-up vocal chop, Harlow impreses showcasing a cleaner feel that will definitely attract a broader audience.  Even with a colorful, fresh sound, he still manages to capture his vintage Southern soul, paying homage to roller rinks and Gangsta Grillz sponsored switch-up to cap things off. “Thru The Night” feels like Harlow is swinging for the fences, and bringing a sound that is more accessible while still staying true to his roots, he may have just hit it out of the park.
