Wrong Time – [Big Taie]

There are very few people in this industry that tell me I need to check someone out and I trust them enough to actually tune in, but the select few that I do trust always put me onto artists who definitely deserve much more shine than they receive. Most recently, the homie put me onto Big Taie and said I need to tune in as soon as possible, and while it’s hard to find any information on him this early on, it’s clear that he’s making music that you need in your life. My introduction to him was a somewhat new offering entitled “Wrong Time”, and this was all I needed to hear in order to understand just how talented this artist truly is. I believe M20 made the beat, at least according to the tagline, and they utilize very pungent 808s that are combined with crisp percussion and epic synths that come together for a hard-hitting yet somewhat lighthearted sound that is an amazing foundation for Taie to do his thing. When he comes in for the first hook, he shows off his dexterity by stretching out certain notes before switching up his flow and showcasing some quicker, more …

Money On Me – [Lil Tecca]

Lil Tecca is without a doubt one of the most prolific Lyrical Lemonade-affiliated artists that we have ever worked with, and today, he is back with his latest Cole Bennett directed visual for “Money On Me”. We shot this music video about four or five weeks ago in a northwestern suburb of Chicago, and it just has that feeling of a classic Lyrical Lemonade x Tecca video. There are some references to some past visuals that we have shot for Tec featured here, one of them being that the girl in this video is the same one from the “Diva” visual by Laroi + Tecca. This was an extremely fun project to work on and it has been received well so far, as it’s currently averaging 100,000 views per hour since its release. Take some time out of your Friday to watch this brand new visual below!

prada remix – [BabySantana] x [lil tecca]

BabySantana is a rising superstar who is getting bigger and bigger by the day, and today he is back on our website with his new music video for the “prada remix” featuring lil tecca! This original of this record is addicting, to say the least, so once you saw that Tecca jumped on the remix, you just knew that this joint was about to be special. This music video was shot right here in Chicago by the solid video director Jackson Wigger, who caught some scenes of these two stars riding around the city as well in some other settings. As music fans, I really hope that we are all sitting back and enjoying this moment that BabySantana is having, years from now we will sit back and discuss this moment in music. Take some time out of your Wednesday to watch this brand new visual below!

Gametime – [Lil Tecca] & [Amine]

Lil Tecca is undeniably one of my favorite artists out, and Amine is definitely up there as well, so when I saw that they had teamed up to put together a song for the upcoming Space Jam movie soundtrack entitled “Gametime”, I was definitely excited. Now, my thoughts on this movie aren’t great just because I’m one of those people who just think there didn’t need to be a sequel to the original Space Jam considering it is just a classic that can’t be messed with, but I digress. The song itself is absolutely amazing, so I had to check out the John Tashiro and Tim Carpenter-directed music video once I saw that that released as well. Opening up with Tecca hanging out at the crib, he picks up his phone to talk to Amine and asks him to hop on XBOX. This part of the visual definitely felt like a gimmick as if XBOX paid them for a mid-video advertisement which I’m sure was the case, but nonetheless, Tecca hopped on and booted up the new Space Jam game. Once he puts his headset on, electric currents take over the entire screen and extend out to the controller, turning …

Sofaygo, The Boy Who Believed

When Andre Dontrel Burt decided to release the three-track EP, We Are Aliens, as SoFaygo, a new pseudonym to replace his former rap name, Trvllinese, the reception wasn’t exactly favorable. “I was getting backlash when I made that transition in 2018,” the 19-year-old rapper remembered, “People was not fucking with it. They liked Trvllinese better. I told them, bro, watch, y’all gonna see.” You make it seem like you knew what was going to happen? “I did,” he replied, “I always felt like I was going to be great, bro.”  Self-assurance doesn’t come in short supply for the Georgia-born teen. His need for a superstar’s resolve dates back to Junior year at Harrison High School. “I started caring less about people’s opinions in 11th grade,” SoFaygo recalled, “That’s when I started wearing different kinds of clothes, dyeing my hair in all different kinds of colors, just adapting to what Atlanta was on at the time.” “But niggas used to try me, bruh,” he asserted. “I don’t know why, maybe because I was different, but they would call me and my music weird.” With a light chuckle, the confident rookie added, “I was having none of that, bruh. I was always …

Never Left – [Lil Tecca]

When thinking of the new generation of music filled with new faces and names constantly popping up left and right, Lil Tecca has seemed to stand the test of time. Obviously, it has only been a couple of years since he took the music scene by storm and at such a young age, I don’t know if anyone truly expected him to be able to keep up with the massive amounts of hype he first created for himself, but it’s clear that he hasn’t even had a second thought about any sort of pressure, and he continues to fill the gigantic footsteps he has in place for himself. As we gear up for the release of his highly anticipated second mixtape, We Love You Tecca, he has been working with the hitmakers over at Internet Money and dropping a couple of singles to garner even more excitement around the project, so expectations couldn’t be any higher. Most recently, he dropped his song “Never Left” which is an absolute banger in every sense of the word, and he kept the momentum going by teaming up with Declan Kyle to shoot an unbelievable music video for this hit. Utilizing a purple hue …

Show Me Up – [Lil Tecca]

In a current climate fueled by snippets and previews, there’s a certain level of joy that comes when a song you have been listening to finally gets an official released version. Speaking on behalf of Lyrical Lemonade veteran Lil Tecca, he has been notorious for previewing snippets that have been amazing. After circling around the internet for some months now, and most recently blowing up on Tik Tok, “Show Me Up” has been a fan favorite and finally sees the light of day on streaming services, as well as an amazing visual to accompany it. “Show Me Up” showcases one of the many bags that Tecca can get in, and that is his relaxed flow with many quotables scattered throughout the song. Tecca is seen in the visuals rapping his verse effortlessly overlooking a beach as the sun sets, adding to the overall aesthetic of the song and the beat. One thing is for certain, is that Tecca knows that his fans love and he knows what will resonate online. Say what you will about Tik Tok and that community, but we have all seen by now just how fast a song can really take off once those creators get …

JETSKI – [Internet Money] ft. [Lil Mosey] & [Lil Tecca]

In the current climate of hip-hop music, I’m not sure if it’s even possible to name a bigger hitmaking compound than Internet Money. After an insanely successful 2020 with the release of their debut album B4 The Storm as well as it’s lead single “Lemonade” spending copious amounts of time at the top of the charts, it seems like there is no way this label could even think about regressing as we move into the new year. What’s even crazier is if their debut was before a proverbial storm, I have no clue how insane the actual storm itself is going to be, but I’m here for it without a doubt. In order to continue their hot streak into 2021, the collective decided to team up with two individual hitmakers in their own rights with Lil Mosey and Lil Tecca, bringing their latest single “JETSKI” to life while is only going to further the growing legacy that IM has already created for themselves. Beginning with the Nick Mira-produced instrumental, you can hear some distinct, plucky strings mixed in with chattering percussion and thunderously calm drums that combine for a sound that is undeniably going to be the soundtrack for the …

Lil Yachty Interview: Five Years In & Still Persevering

“When I was like 18, I used to really care about what everybody thought about my music and it used to get to me. I just started to realize that when you do good, people will criticize you, and when you do bad, they still criticize you.” -Lil Yachty Photo Cred: Gunner Stahl If there’s one thing that the roller coaster of a year that was 2020 has showed us, is that time is flying by. It seems like just a couple of years ago we were introduced to Apple Music and transitioning to an all-digital era of music. Some of the favorite songs, albums and mixtapes that existed over the last half of a decade are aging faster than we can count to 10, and  we are even nearing the anniversary of some projects turning 10 this year. It sounds crazy to even say this out loud, but 2021 will be the 5 year anniversary of the amazingly iconic XXL Freshmen class of 2016. Regardless of what good or bad may have happened in peoples lives that year, we can all agree that 2016 was a very important year for music. It sparked the brand new generation of rap–a …
