The Story Behind the “Lucid Dreams” and “All Girls Are The Same” Music Videos

Juice WRLD is not only one of the biggest musical icons of our generation but in music history, what he was able to accomplish was truly unbelievable, and we are blessed to be able to have witnessed it firsthand. In our latest episode of ‘Behind The Video’, LL founder Cole Bennett broke down the story behind the classic music videos for “Lucid Dreams” and “All Girls Are The Same”. Cole spoke on some great moments and never heard stories in this BTV, not only that, he dropped plenty of other gems in here as well. In my opinion, this is the best BTV that we have dropped on the Lyrical Lemonade 2 channel to date, but I will let you be the judge!

Nappyboi – [Envy Ojay]

It hasn’t been long since the moment I first found out about New Jersey spitter Envy Ojay, but in the short amount of time that he has been on my radar, the love he has received some insane coverage, and when you tap in with his music while also understanding his story, it’s a recipe for all-out magic. Envy is actually deaf, accidentally blowing his eardrums out after blasting music into his headphones nightly for months in order to try and plant a seed of creativity and musical artistry into his brain while sleeping, but even this wasn’t enough to stop him from chasing his dreams, and man am I glad he kept going. Since receiving a bit more recognition, he has worked pretty closely with producer Based1, someone who loves discovering promising young acts to develop, and considering he has teamed up with superstars like the late and phenomenal Juice WRLD, Trippie Redd, Iann Dior, Lil Skies, and many others, Envy Ojay is bound to blow up sooner than later. One of their more recent releases was their song “Nappyboi” which even received a Sam Sherfey-directed music video just a couple of weeks ago, and it is always so …

Producer Spotlight: Joe Reeves

Joe Reeves is an up and coming producer that everyone should have their eye on at this point. With so much talent circulating the world right now, my mission is to single out those who are worth paying attention to and it’s a fact that Joe falls into that category. The London born and raised talent has been putting together a respectable resume for himself that includes, Man of the Year (Juice WRLD), Broadway Girls (Lil Durk), System (Dave ft. Wizkid) & I Don’t Want Your Money (Ed Sheeran ft. HER).With a stacked discography like that, it’s only right that we take some time to ask Joe a few questions so our readers and listeners can get to know this phenomenal beat maker who is undeniably on the rise! — Sam: What inspired you to pursue music in the first place? Joe: I actually didn’t pursue a career in music. I was working as a runner for an editing house, and all I would do was make music in whatever free time I had. I used to post videos of me playing guitar on instagram, just for my friends. From there, by a series of very fortunate events, it became …

Lately – [Worry Club] ft. [John the Ghost]

One thing that has made music become so diverse, unique, and weird (in the best ways possible) is the fact that it’s accessible to pretty much anyone. Most massive artists out today have gotten their start in a bedroom, a closet, the basement, or whatever other odd places there may have been for them to record in, and these have led to some of the best songs in the world. I always think back to the timeless clip of the legendary Juice WRLD recording “All Girls Are the Same” in his bedroom, and when you see the absolutely mind-boggling numbers that this record did, there is truly nothing that can stop someone with a talent and a passion. Not only were the numbers completely insane, but the song is a modern-day masterpiece that will never get old no matter how often you play it or how many years have passed since it came out. While this is obviously an outlier, there is potential in every bedroom hit, and Worry Club is the latest artist to make some buzz surrounding some records recorded at home in his bedroom. Although he may have a few more looks and access to better equipment …

Permission – [TokenVlone]

Last year was a very pivotal year for so many up-and-coming artists, but it was just as impactful for me as well, I believe. Although I may be in a different realm of the music industry, I feel as if I finally found my footing, made some fantastic connections, and truly started to gain a grasp of what my place in this business is. Along with these realizations, I was able to find out about so many blossoming and promising talents that I couldn’t keep count, and just when I thought I had heard about the next big thing, someone else would come across my computer screen and I was more amazed than ever. Towards the end of last year, I came across TokenVlone, someone who I definitely should have been in tune with much earlier than I was, but I didn’t let my tardiness affect my enjoyment of this rising talent’s skills, so when I tapped in with his debut project Vandals, it immediately became something I revisited on a daily basis and still regularly listen to as often as I can. Drawing comparisons to the legendary Juice WRLD is never something anyone should take lightly, and while I …

Speed Off – [Envy Ojay]

I know I’ve mentioned so many different stories with regards to many of the various artists I’ve covered, but some of their upbringings are just too captivating to let go unnoticed. As for New Jersey’s very own Envy Ojay, he has been making major waves in the underground with some insanely good music, but his backstory is just too unique to not mention. Growing up, his mom humorously decided to try and learn a new language by actually listening to audiobooks and lessons overnight in an attempt to ingrain that new language into her mind while sleeping. Well, whether this worked or not, Envy decided to take a page out of his mother’s book and expand upon his musical aspirations by putting his air pods on full blast at night while listening to some of his idols like Juice WRLD, Future, and others so that he would hopefully absorb some of their song structures, melodies, and creativity into his own mind. While this was always a risk, a few months had passed before noises began to dwindle before going completely silent, and that’s when he knew there was a problem. Soon enough, Envy found out that a piece of his …

damaged – [Kody Lavigne]

If I’m being completely honest and fully transparent, I have to admit that a few years ago, I was not a fan of the direction that music seemed to be heading in. As the music business embraced the internet age in its entirety, it just seemed like so many people who had access to a microphone and could get beats off of YouTube were making music, even if there was no natural talent for musical creation within themselves. Instead, they hide their flaws or imperfections behind copious amounts of autotune and various other vocal effects, and this made it seemingly impossible to find newcomers who truly had a knack for this industry. While I used to look at this as a glass half empty kind of situation, I have since tried to shift my perspective and understand that while this easy access might flood the scene with tons of wannabes, it also will give the opportunity to create wonderful music to people with legitimate skills, but you just have to dig a little deeper and spend a bit more time finding the ones who are worth your time. Beyond my rant, I thought it was necessary when talking about Kody …

Already Dead – [Juice WRLD]

It’s never easy for even a second losing a loved one, and when one of your favorite artists in the entire world passes away so suddenly, it can truly affect you for years and years. While I know people have differing opinions about posthumous releases considering the talent themself isn’t here to give their final stamp of approval, I for one am okay with it because when they put their all into their music as Juice WRLD did, you know that it’s always something that should be available for fans to witness and learn from. Juice was the definition of an absolute superstar, and if that wasn’t obvious during his time here on Earth, it should be now after seeing the massive success his projects have seen, an entire HBO documentary, and simply the unforgettable legacy he built as well as the mark he left on every single one of his fans. Juice was one of a kind, obviously, and when his team released his album Fighting Demons which boasted 18 songs lasting almost 55 minutes long and features from other talents like Justin Bieber, Polo G, Trippie Redd, and more. It’s sad knowing that we won’t get too much …

Top 50 Chicago Projects of 2021

Every year, artists hailing from Chicago prove exactly why this is a city that belongs in the upper echelon of music, and this fact grows more abundantly obvious with every release that is put out. Whether a musician is world renown or locally recognized, there is never a shortage of creativity, effort, or innovation, and whether the rest of the country notices this or not, local fans are well aware of the goldmine that we are sitting on here in the Midwest.  Our goal here at Lyrical Lemonade has always been to shine a light on the remarkable sounds coming out of the city every single year, and even when we go in with certain expectations or presumptions, our minds are absolutely blown once we realize just how much dexterous and unique music was brought to life in the span of 12 short months. One thing that is inimitable within the local scene here is simply the sense of community because whether these talents are teaming up with one another or on entirely different levels of fame, everyone seems to show love to each other, ensuring their awareness of the eye-opening and head-turning styles that are being generated across the …
