Fast – [Juice WRLD]

We are huge fans of Juice WRLD here at Lyrical Lemonade but that’s been known for some time, who is making his way back on our site today with his brand new music video for his song titled “Fast”. This was one of my personal favorite joints off of Juice WRLD’s well received album “Death Race For Love” that dropped earlier this year, so I was ecstatic to finally see it get the visual that it deserved, and although I had high expectations I didn’t expect it to be hypnotizing and flat out flawless. Juice WRLD is continuing a great year with this new video but I am sure he has much more in store before 2019 is said and done, including headlining the LL fest! Listen to this brand new visual below and if you like what you hear don’t hesitate to share it with a friend!

Watch Juice WRLD perform on Jimmy Fallon

Juice WRLD has been in New York doing a press run and appearing at many big platforms, and the latest platform that he graced was Jimmy Fallon’s stage last night! Juice performed one of the fan favorites off of his last album with “Hear Me Calling”, but he wasn’t alone for the show, he got some assistance from one of the most legendary bands, The Roots! Needless to say that they did a fantastic job and gave the audience a great show, and lucky for us we get to watch it on repeat via The Tonight Show’s YouTube. Watch this brand new live performance below and if you enjoy it be sure to give Juice WRLD a follow on Twitter here.

Watch Juice Wrld’s brand new interview with The Breakfast Club

Chicago superstar Juice Wrld is one of our favorites here at Lyrical Lemonade but that’s no secret, and recently Juice Wrld stopped by The Breakfast Club for an amazing new interview with Charlamagne, Angela Yee and DJ Envy. you will find the three hosts asking Juice about plenty of dope things such as his massive success, mental health, heartbreak, his smash hit “Lucid Dreams”, expressing his emotions, his new music, how men don’t really deal with or talk about trauma, signing with Interscope, people switching up on him, the first thing he bought after he got his deal, being from Chicago, his last album, being abnormally good at freestyling, the type of student he was, be prescribed adderall as a kid & not liking it, working at a car factory out of high school, touring with Nicki Minaj, his stage presence, his favorite foods, how he got the name Juice Wrld, his relationship, dealing with people asking for pictures in awkward situations and so much more.

A Closer Look Into Wicca Phase Springs Eternal

On the Road Again, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal Talks the New Approach of Latest Project “Suffer On,” the Impact of Lil Peep’s Death, Major Label Wooing, and the Future of GothBoiClique For the first time ever on a headlining tour, Adam McIlwee, the Pennsylvania  electronic angst auteur who records as Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, has gone out with a stage backdrop, and it’s impressive. But last week in Brooklyn, he didn’t use it. No need, really, as the artist was performing in front of one of the most dramatic views a New York venue has to offer: the elevated tracks of the J, M and Z trains, which rumble by periodically mid-set, just outside the beloved indie venue Market Hotel. It feels like a moment for Wicca Phase. Maybe not a splashy, look-at-me moment, but then, flexing is not really for McIlwee, who at 29 has already logged several notable chapters in an unlikely musical path, one that’s bridged punk, hip-hop, emo, and most recently evolved into singer-songwriter acoustics. He’s still based in his native Scranton, PA, where in the late 2000’s he fronted the indie outfit Tiger’s Jaw, until more electronic and experimental tendencies led him to split from …

Rockstar – [Lil Shock]

It’s time we introduce you to Lil Shock as he makes his debut to the Lyrical Lemonade pages with his brand new anthem, “Rockstar.” I have to give a shout out to Fashionably Early because Kyle is actually the one who put me onto Shock in the first place. Since then, I’ve gotten to speak to the young rapper for a little bit and see what he has going on with his movement, and it turns out that Lil Shock only been making music for a couple of years now, studying different genres and eras of music to mold and refine his own sound. Some of his favorites are older rap, Lil Yachty, Rich The Kid, and Juice Wrld, who even gave Lil Shock an inspirational message to “never give up.” That said, ”Rockstar” is a hard-hitting single in which the Durham, North Carolina emcee explained to me that he wanted to make something that listeners could get hype to, but also have them feel some emotion — and looking at the ways in which this single is able to play both sides, Shock certainly achieved his goal. Stream Lil Shock’s emotional banger “Rockstar” below.

Sore Loser – [ripmattblack]

ripmattblack made his Lyrical Lemonade debut last November with “Winnebago,” a track that left quite the impression on me thanks to some wild visuals. Signed to Alamo records and armed with a crossover sound, I’ve been interested to see what the Florida-based artist would come back with; today, fans finally get to see, as ripmattblack returns with another intoxicating, pop-centric offering in “Sore Loser”. Hit-making duo Take A Daytrip (who are behind cuts like “Mo Bamba” and Juice WRLD’s “Legends”) bring their magic yet again, creating a beat that has a light, pop feel but still has mass. It’s perfect for ripmattblack’s crisp, sung-rapped approach where he adds just a little bit of a slurred drawl to match the intoxicant-laced, erratic persona he puts on in the lyrics and the accompanying visuals. This is yet another fantastic release to add to ripmattblack’s catalog, so be sure to check it out at the link provided below!

Thru The Dark – [Joei Razook]

Joei Razook is a rapper from Cleveland, Ohio with an alternative rap sound, and his newest offering that you need to check out goes by the name of “Thru the Dark.” I first became familiar with Joei’s music a couple a months ago when his manager had sent some material through, and the first thing I noticed was that his sound truly feels like a blend of some of my favorite emo bands mixed with rapping. Most recently, my favorite artists that have mastered this sound are Juice Wrld and Lil Peep, but with Razook’s unique style, he has certainly taken my ear as the latest hot up-and-comer in this line of music. On “Thru The Dark,” Razook talks about shining a light through the dark, and if it’s bright enough, he’ll be there. This gives off the impression that whatever you’re going through, if you signal a light, Joei and his music will be sure to come through. It can occur fairly often that we get let down by people we think are there for us, so it feels great when you have people to give you that reassurance in your life. That said, this is definitely a solid release, so be sure …

Death Race For Love – [Juice Wrld]

One of the most discussed topics on social media today has been about the excitement surrounding Juice Wrld’s brand new album titled “Death Race For Love”, which just got released moments ago. Juice Wrld has been creating some timeless smash hit records since he first blew up, but this new project is looking to be his best work to date by far, an A&R that works with Juice Wrld went as far as to compare it to Jay-Z and Biggie classics. It’s going to take some time to fully digest this album but I love what I have heard so far, I think when it’s all said and done Juice will end up being a legend himself like those he got compared to. Stream this brand new album below and if you like what you’re hearing be sure to check out Juice Wrld’s website for information about his touring dates & buy some merch while you’re at it!

Turning The Camera Around: Interviewer Spotlight

Even in the age of social media, where artists can constantly connect and speak to an endless number of fans with the click of a few buttons, the art of the sit-down interview will never be lost or, for that matter, replaced. From the intricate details of Nardwuar interviews to the knowledgeable conversations of Elliott Wilson, these interviews are what adds a dimension of background and personality to the musicians we know and love, and for that, they demand appreciation. Whether explaining obscure childhood stories, the meaning of albums, their influences, or any other plethora of topics, musicians tend to open up when paired with the right interviewer, and the benefit of these conversations is for all to enjoy. Interviews provide fans with background, insight, and nowadays, viral moments, offering up endless entertainment that satisfies casual listeners and stans alike.
