Patient – [Jake Daniels]

I love music for so many different reasons, as most people do. Sometimes I love it for the story, for the beat, or for the fact that most of the music I hear is being brought to life by artists in such a perfect way, I know it’s something I could never do myself. Beyond this, whether I’m listening to a love song, a party anthem, a song full of aggression or ignorance, or anything in between, I’ve never heard a piece of music that hasn’t evoked some sort of emotional reaction within myself, and that’s something that I don’t realize as often as I probably should. Most recently, I was put onto an artist by the name of Jake Daniels, and his music blew me away pretty much right off the bat. It’s a bit different than what I typically find myself tuning into because I’m usually more into the upbeat, fast-paced style of music, but after clicking play on his latest song “Patient”, I knew that he was a unique talent that I had to pay attention to. I’m not sure who produced this record, but they did a lovely job of incorporating some emotive, heart-string-pulling melodies with …

Shot With Me – [Moe Young] ft. [lilspirit]

Few artists are actually able to capture the attention of any member of Internet Money, so that’s why whenever I heard of a talent working with the hit factory out on the West Coast, I need to listen up. Moe Young is a talent I have consistently heard about, but I have yet to truly listen in to consistently in all honesty. There’s no rhyme or reason as to why because everything I’ve ever heard has been absolutely magnificent, so I realize that I need to finally cut the excuses and give this man the respect and attention he has worked so hard for. Back at the beginning of Summer, Moe hit up the IM family and trusted that they’d not only help him build another hit, but they’d also give him some assistance on the lyrical front with lilspirit, and “Shot With Me” was created. Considering this was a simple SoundCloud upload, it might not have been expected to take off quite as it did, and luckily, Moe decided to bring this hit to life in the form of an outstanding music video directed by JakeTheShooter. As the song begins to play, the camera pans down from the sky …

Downtown 81 – [Roc Marciano] x [Jake One]

New York hip-hop legend Roc Marciano recently released an iconic new Jason Goldwatch visual for his song “Downtown 81,” produced by Jake One. The music video is the first off Marciano’s new album Mt. Marci, which can currently exclusively be purchased through his website. Taking inspiration from Japanese culture, Goldwatch incorporates a 90’s esque video effect to reflect the year of 1981. The song title  mirrors the 2001 feature film “Downtown 81,” which starred the legendary late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat as he basked the lively downtown NY art and music scene of 1980-1981. Unsurprisingly, Roc Marciano weaves clever lyricism to emphasize the motif of the number eighty-one. For instance, Marciano references Kobe Bryant’s famous 81 point game against Toronto in 2006: “Made your ankle roll, did you dirty like Kobe did Jalen Rose.” Moreover, Roc flexes his Gucci frames and states that they were made in ’81, followed by a bonus acknowledgement that he’s driving 81 mph in a flashy Mercedes-Benz. Before this line, Marciano states that “the all white Alfa Romeo looks like yayo,” giving off his best Tony Montana impression. Although this fact wasn’t mentioned in the record, it is worth noting that the international dialing code of Japan …

Hunny – [Nate Traveller]

Nate Traveller has always been impressive. The prolific artist carries an emotional delivery and an incredibly difficult to ignore charisma that follows each of his songs, whether through heart mending melodies or poignant rap deliveries. His recently released project, Hunny, is a significant step forward in his sound and a shining example his artistic growth. Coming in at a total of 21-minutes for a total of eight songs, Nate Traveller’s reentrance into the space since sharing his three-track release Alone back in 2018.

I want my music to help people find peace.” Listen to Hunny by Nate Traveller below.

Insider Art – [Bird Language]

It’s clear that some artists like to look at music as a rush to get as many songs out as possible in order to remain in the public eye, but others have a much more steady, patient approach. While this can be risky due to the short attention spans of listeners in the new digital age of music or the fear of losing whatever momentum an artist might have going for them, producer duo Bird Language wasn’t worried in the slightest. The case in point comes when looking at their brand-new project Insider Art that took right around four years to perfect and bring to life. Despite this extensive time span, the project boasts 17 songs and a runtime of only about 21 minutes long. While this might seem like it’s way too short for such a long wait, the duo packs a punch with every single record, providing a sneak preview of all the different experimental sounds that they have become famous for bringing to life. Considering there are so many songs yet such a short runtime, I’m going to touch on the highlights that really stuck out to me and let you dive into the sonic world that …

Change – [YaYa]

Toronto is a neverending source for exciting new talent, it seems there is always a new voice emerging that speaks to the city’s diverse pool of outstanding artists. We have covered some impressive debuts from the city, but today we have one of our strongest yet from newcomer YaYa. The Texas-born, Toronto raised artist has an incredibly mesmerizing voice that stands out as soon as the intro gets going on his impressive first single “Change”. His vocals come together incredibly smoothly being that this is his first official release, showing that he is not wasting any time looking to stake his claim in the crowded Toronto landscape sooner than later. Canada’s Cultural Capital has some of the most intense competition with how much talent exists, its artists like YaYa that can cut through the commotion letting his talent do the talking.

Who At The Door – [18Veno]

Simply put, 18Veno hasn’t missed yet. With undeniable consistency, the BoyMeetSpace prodigy has been delivering a new release every few weeks over the past month or two, and thus far, has only heightened the excitement around his name as one of South Carolina’s most promising new acts. Match this with names like Neeko Baby and jetsonmade behind the boards, and you have an all-star cast of characters, all pushing Veno to inevitable stardom. Today, the man himself is back, this time sharing a brand new song and music video entitled “Who At The Door.” Barely over 2 minutes in length, “Who At The Door” continues on Veno’s theme of short releases, packing the most punch in the leas amount of time. With lyrics like the below… Who the f**k at the door, don’t let ’em in Got a shooter at the door, he don’t smile, he don’t grin Big choppas n***a, we got big f**kin racks I’m the man of the house, I put my family on my back … Veno’s charismatic approach stands at the forefront of his music, using chip-on-the-shoulder deliveries and spacey production to maximize the impact of each new release. Quite clearly, this approach works seamlessly …

Head In The Clouds – [BabyJake]

A true staple moment of coming across an artist is not merely admiring and acknowledging the talent they exude there in front of you on whatever song it was you came across of theirs. The quintessential special moment comes when realizing what said artist can do from here and beyond. Many who first heard Baby Jake were undoubtedly made present to his sheer talent in the moment but also his future voyages as an artist and where those voyages would take him sonically speaking. This sort preamble on the California-based artist brings me to his newly released single, “Head In The Clouds.” Brought to life by bright guitar riffs and Jake’s obsession-worthy vocal performance, his new single is a blissed-out piece of euphoric escapism. Lyrically driven by a narrative that details the admission of personal miss-steps and the honest cry to simply live freely and carelessly, BabyJake creates a catchy single that exudes his growth as a vocalist and as an overall song-maker. Despite it being only several months since the rising artist’s last release, his new release marks an important point in his ascension and warrants not only our support as lovers of music but fans of artists that appear …

Till The Morning – [Jay Worthy] & [Shlohmo]

An artist who is constantly pushing the envelope by working with as many different talented producers as possible is Jay Worthy. His music has been well covered on Lyrical Lemonade but his most recent project might be one of the strongest, most creative to date. Already this year he has dropped an EP with Harry Fraud as well as another string of small projects with legends like The Alchemist, Cardo Got Wings, and Jake One. He recently dropped his latest collaboration with Shlohmo that is appropriately titled Till The Morning. A name that accurately reflects the work ethic Worthy possesses, he’ll continue hustling long after the sun has risen. Tapping into production from Shlohmo is something people might not be expecting from the Compton legend, but the pair blend together perfectly to make something that sounds different than any of their previous releases. Throughout this EP, Shlohmo “Mama Used to Say” is a great example of the west coast influenced production from Shlohmo elevating Worthy’s laidback delivery that he has become known for. “You Know” is one of the strongest records on the EP, Worthy sounds immaculate over a beat that centers around jazzy flute every single time. While each song on …
