Premiere: chamber johan + Phases (video)-[Johan Lenox]

When you use the phrase generational talent, I believe the name Johan Lenox needs to be in any conversation that you might be having. The well established and well known artist is truly one of the most talented individuals in the music industry right now, and it’s about time that we took time to celebrate all of the genius that he possesses. I’ve witness this man take a song from 0-100 just by adding simple string elements to it and it’s the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed ever. I’m so hype to be bringing this legend onto our page today and if you’re reading this, you should be too! For a majority of his life, Johan has been fixated on classical music. That is until he heard “My Dark Twisted Fantasy” for the first time at a house party while on Acid. It was at this moment when Johan’s interests and taste began to change although he’s managed to stick close to his classical roots. From then, the musician began dabbling with the possibility of crossing classical music with other genres. The Massachusetts native then was off to the races as he began the composer of Yeethoven in …

Get N Dere Gang – [Lil Gotit] ft. [Lil Keed] & [Yak Gotti]

The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here, and of course, I’m talking about the day that Lil Gotit decided to drop off his latest album entitled Top Chef Gotit. It’s no secret that Gotit knows how to cook up some heaters with his crew, but this album is definitely proving that he deserves a spot on the next tier of success with other YSL artists like Lil Keed, Gunna, and Young Thug. Along with the release of this incredible album, he decided to give fans even more reason to celebrate and dropped off an awesome new visual for his song “Get N Dere Gang” which features his brother Lil Keed as well as the always entertaining and energetic Yak Gotti. In this ShotByWolf-directed music video, things are kept pretty simple as they seemed to just shoot on the go, capturing moments where the artists are vibing out with one another. As it goes on, each talent shows off their extensive outfits full of designer names and diamond-studded chains, yet their personalities each shine bright for everyone to see. Even though they don’t have parts in this track itself, Gunna and Young Thug are featured copiously throughout, showing …

Work Out – [Lil Gotit] ft. [Gunna]

Although there are dozens of rising hip-hop cities all over the world, few of these cities can truly do it like Atlanta. It’s no secret that the southern hub has produced some of the biggest names in music over the past few decades, and while there always seems to be a new name coming out of the shadows on what seems to be a daily basis, there are a few names that I actually truly make an effort to keep up with, one of those names being Lil Gotit. I might’ve found out about Gotit through his older brother, Lil Keed’s music, but I have been thoroughly impressed ever since I began listening to his own solo music which gets me even more excited to see what he has to come with his upcoming project Top Chef Gotit which he has been hyping up for what seems like months at this point. As the release date comes closer and closer, he has been sharing more and more with fans, most recently dropping his latest single “Work Out” with none other than fellow ATLien and all-around superstar Gunna. DMC Global and Evrgrn tag-teamed the production efforts on this record using poignant …

YEX – [Jimmy Bolt]

Houston is one of the most prominent cities for hip-hop up and comers, and while it seems to continue to stay under the radar when looking at massive successes like Travis Scott, Meg the Stallion, and a few other mainstays in the industry, I always enjoy finding out about new artists who are on the come up. Most recently I was put onto a new artist by the name of Jimmy Bolt who has been turning heads in recent memory, and after tuning in to one of his latest releases, I couldn’t help but share it with you all. Although it came out a couple of months ago, Jimmy’s song “YEX” has been blowing up without a doubt, and for good reason as well. Opening up with an instrumental that seems to include some bells and intriguing synths, the beat begins to proceed with some percussion and drums, yet when it seems to fully drop, it almost simplifies more than ever in order to create a sturdy and picturesque foundation for Jimmy to show off his skills. When he does come in, his words are somewhat spread out and energetic in the hook, using his play on the word sex …

Money Talks – [Donald Grunge]

Boston’s very own Donald Grunge might just be seeing his music career taking off, but it seems like with every new song he releases, he just sees more and more fans flocking in his direction. It makes sense, though, because he has one of the most captivating, individualistic sounds in the entire music industry, not even just Boston. Most recently, Grunge decided to drop a brand-new song called “Money Talks” and a John Rawl and The GLEEMS-directed music video that act as a real one-two punch for the up-and-comer. Opening up with the beat, which was made by Kenny Prosper and yo21, we are greeted with some high-pitched synths or keys of some sort before we’re surprised with rattling percussion and pungent drums almost directly after pressing play. While the song itself is relatively short, there’s no room to waste any time so Donald gets right to it, showing off just how distinct his voice is with an almost Lil Keed meets Lil Baby with a hint of Thugger and many other artists sprinkled into the mix. If that explanation was confusing, it’s because he truly is so out of the box that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly one or …

Slime Language 2 – [YSL] [Young Thug]

While the idea of rap groups as a whole may be slowly disappearing in the rap game, we have been seeing tons of cliques and rap labels that may have tons of solo artists, but appear to have that group-like demeanor. As of late, we have seen Quality Control–home of rap acts lie Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, and more. Griselda Records consists of Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine & Benny the Butcher. Last but not least, we have seen YSL flourish in the rap game since Young Thug took the scene by storm. If you do a bit of digging, you will see Young Thug interacting with tons of members of YSL before they were famous as he built them up to become the stars they are today. Gunna used to appear in Thugger’s music videos before signing to his label, and a young and determined Lil Keed played his music for Thug before the fame and he ultimately ended up signing with Thug as well. Here we are today and Young Thug is here to showcase his latest body of work alongside his star-studded YSL crew, Slime Language 2. With the original Slime Language project dropping in 2018, it was met …

Trust Nobody (2 My Brothers) – [DJ Scheme] & [Joey Bada$$]

Way back at the beginning of December, DJ Scheme blessed the world with his absolutely unbelievable debut album FAMILY, and all of the features that joined him turned out to be exactly that. He only wanted to work with his closest friends because chemistry is something that goes such a long way when making music, and it was obviously a major factor that brought this project to new heights. Obviously, we’re used to Scheme working with artists like Ski Mask the Slump God and Danny Towers who were both coming up at the same time Scheme was in the Florida music scene, but this project brought some unexpected guests to the party like Skrillex, Ty Dolla $ign, and Lil Keed along with others, but each and every guest brought the perfect amount of differentiation and their own flair to the project that worked wonderfully. Out of all these guests, though, I think the artist that seemed to be the most out of left field was Joey Bada$$, at least in my opinion. Scheme might be known for his high-intensity bangers full of chaos and energy, and although Joey is one of the most versatile artists on the planet, he doesn’t …

Stay Down – [Yung Mal]

Yung Mal might be a completely new name to me personally, but that doesn’t mean he’s a new name to others. After a huge breakout year in 2020, he is back and ready to dominate 2021, kicking things off with his latest offering “Stay Down”. Ronan and TRGC took the reins on producing this track, and they made everything come together with some playful, mischievous flutes, intense synths, and a drumline that is as Trap as it gets, which complements Mal’s deliveries nicely. As the beat takes shape and continues to transform, Mal continues to hype himself up to come in and go crazy. Before anything else, you notice his personality at the forefront of everything, and although he might not necessarily be the wildest character in the game, you can tell he’s being authentic and 100% himself which is sometimes hard to notice in the current day and age of Rap. As he continues throughout the record, his flows are tight and well put together, and he never seems to get too overeager with his words which helps them come out naturally and professionally. His diversity of cadences is also quite the spectacle as he shows off his dexterity …

Risk – [Landon Cube]

It’s no secret that Landon Cube is a pretty close friend of Lyrical Lemonade’s. Ever since he teamed up with Lil Skies to bring their hit song “Red Roses” to life and got Cole to shoot the visual, the bond was created, and I don’t think it could ever be broken. Landon’s just such an easy artist to root for because he seems like such a normal, down to earth persona rather than this inhuman superstar that he honestly probably is. Back in early December, Landon finally decided to drop off his debut album Sapphire, a 14 song, half-hour-long project that gave fans an even deeper, more introspective look at the incredible talent beyond all the pomp and circumstance that his life might seem to contain from the outside looking in. While fans seem to be as loyal as ever supporting his album, as they should, Landon isn’t even close to done with the fun he has been creating with this release. To further emphasize his point, he recently decided to drop a music video for a cut of the album entitled “Risk”, and I couldn’t be more excited with the results. Landon teamed up with director Sam McGrath, a …

GFU – [Yak Gotti] [Yung Kayo] & [Sheck Wes]

Although it might be one of the more underrated labels in all of Rap music, Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life Records has a roster that could go toe to toe with any other label in existence. While artists like Gunna, Lil Keed, and Yak Gotti are obvious headliners, various other superstars have shown love to the label even if they’re not quite signed to it themselves. Most recently, Yak Gotti and YSL member Yung Kayo teamed up with New York’s very own energizer Sheck Wes in order to deliver an outrageous song called “GFU”, a brand-new single off of the upcoming album Slime Language 2. Taurus paved the way for this song through an absolutely remarkable yet uncharacteristic instrumental utilizing high-pitched, troublesome synths, a pitched down vocal sample, some clean percussion, and somewhat subdued drums that truly allow each and every artist to go absolutely insane as they’ve been known to do in the past. When Yak comes in, his words are just wild enough and his cadences are filled with enthusiasm just to the point where he can still keep his composure without reaching a tipping point and truly going insane. In the hook, they just pretty much chant …
