IDK – [Lil Tecca]

The rise of Lil Tecca has been unlike anyone I have ever seen before, he has become an absolute superstar in less than a year, and today Lil Tecca is back with his brand new music video for “IDK”. When you look at Lil Tecca’s impeccable catalog thus far into his career, it would be hard to think that he can make another banger to nearly topmost of the prior material, but sure enough, here he is again with one of the best songs you will hear all month. When you think of Lil Tecca’s career up to this point you can’t help but also think of Lyrical Lemonade’s own Cole Bennett because of the classic videos they have provided so far, and they connected again for this visual, so you already know that it’s going to be a hit. I am sure that when we look back at 2020 a year from now, we will see it as a year that was massive for Lil Tecca & continuing his growth as an artist, get prepared for him to completely take over the music world. Watch this brand new music video below and if you like what you hear/see then put …


RonSoCold is one of the most talented underground artists in recent memory. Although he uses heavy autotune on all of his songs, he finds a way to keep it fresh and his music never sounds repetitive in the slightest. His cadences are simple but catchier than most of the hit songs on the charts, and his overall style from his music to his fashion sense is top-notch. The North Carolina rapper is back with a very brief but impactful single called “Had 2”, which is off of his upcoming project set to release at some point this year. Lil Tecca, the young rapper and producer who took the world by storm last year and is looking to do the same in 2020, absolutely murdered the production. He included some gallant, airy synths that come in waves paired with subtle bass to accent the quick hats and claps, creating the foundation for this hit. With his trademark heavy autotuned vocals, RonSoCold brought so much vigor and energy to his verse. His short, choppy lines discussing his come up, drugs, and the emotions he deals with bring this single full circle to create a masterpiece. He ended up going all out for …

Diva – [The Kid LAROI] ft. [Lil Tecca]

The Kid LAROI’s takeover seems inevitable at this point. The buzzing Austrailian artist continues to build traction with his versatile mix of angsty pop melodies and addictive flows, and these highlights of his music come through loud and clear on his new track, “Diva”. Not to mention he adds fuel to the fire with a feature from Lil Tecca, a combo that meshes naturally over the song’s trappy, upbeat production by Dez Wright. Following up his work with Cole Bennett on the music video for “Let Her Go,” LAROI and Cole make it happen once again with another memorable and crisply edited visual for “Diva”. The video has fun with the song’s subject matter, showcasing Tecca and LAROI trying to get away from a neurotic diva personality. In between, the two young and already-certified hitmakers click on-camera and on the record, making for a collab that’ll soon find its way into your daily rotation.    

ChaseTheMoney [Interview]: Chasing Money & More Success In 2020 And The Years To Follow

Cover Art: Griff Amongst the realm of producers, there are many contributing to the massive and ever-growing population of amazing music being made. However, it takes pure talent to be crowned alongside the ones who will shine the brightest, thrive the longest, and be solidified as one of the greatest to ever grace a track with their immaculate instrumentation. Often so, people speak about who the pioneers are as far as who’s running the rap game, and who’s killing the production game. Back in August of 2019, I wrote an article about the producers who were behind the sound of the current climate of music, and one of the easiest picks was St. Louis native ChaseTheMoney. By now, you should all be familiar with the sound that he has been creating, the trends he has been setting, and the everlasting music that has been released in the last few years. Even if you haven’t seen what he looks like, you have to have heard his catchy “Chase the money, chase the money!” producer tag provided by Chicago’s own Valee. Throughout his career, he’s been able to collaborate with a wide array of artists such as Ski Mask The Slump God, …

Floating – [TyFontaine]

At the top of every new year, blogs, fans, and curators alike begin to put together their picks for the artists to blow in the coming 365 days. Personally, considering the momentum that he’s garnered just in the past few months, I have a feeling that TyFontaine is a name who certainly shouldn’t be left out of this conversation. Following the recent release of his virtual boy EP, Fontaine is back today to double down on such with a brand new single, “Floating.” Produced by none other than Lil Tecca — whose production prowess certainly shouldn’t be overlooked — “Floating” is the kind of left-of-center, melody-driven release that might just stick in 2020. Running just under a minute and a half, the song caters to current listening trends in a structural sense, while the inventive scramble of flows from Fontaine wastes no time in commanding attention and keeping it. If there’s one song to convince fans of the budding talent’s colorful world of sound, “Floating” just might be it. Stream the new single below, and be sure to revisit the virtual boy EP to hear Fontaine’s strong run of releases heading into the new year. 2020 might just be the year for Internet …

Pusha T Deserves The World

Photo Credit: Matt Berg (Instagram) (Twitter) Attending school in Western Massachusetts is pretty much what it sounds like. For those unfamiliar with the area, it consists mostly of farmland, and while the vast space can make for some beautiful scenery, it is far from an urban environment. The densest areas population-wise are colleges and surrounding towns, the largest of which being the University of Massachusetts in Amherst (UMass), with a student enrollment of over twenty thousand. The school is the centerpiece of the area, and as a result, has been able to land performances from big names in the past. Rap music fans like myself eagerly await the announcement of these school-wide concerts, due to the general concert drought we tend to find ourselves in. Live music is abundant in Western Massachusetts. One can catch an indie rock band in a basement somewhere on pretty much any weekend, but rap shows are rare. This past March, the school secured Future to headline a show at UMass, and it was without a doubt a highlight of the year. So, when a poster appeared on a bathroom door outside of my information systems class declaring that the legendary Pusha T, alongside Lyrical-Lemonade …

PREMIERE: Houdini – [WavesOnGianni]

Today, Harlem native WavesOnGianni is premiering the music video for his single “Houdini” on our platform. Showcasing the rising talent’s viral energy as he flexes around his hometown, “Houdini” not only offers an introduction to Gianni’s music but the high school senior’s rapidly growing career as well. In between school and baseball practice, Gianni found some time to do a Q&A with me about the making of “Houdini”, his experience modeling in New York Fashion Week, and how his Harlem upbringing has influenced his vision as an artist. Read our conversation and watch the Goldie Harris-directed video for “Houdini” below! — MDR: How has growing up in an area with so much cultural influence and hip-hop history influenced you? WG: In Harlem, we’re really flashy and into fashion. Every time you step outside, you gotta’ put your best outfit on. We’re always trying to outdo everyone else and I look it at as the city’s red carpet. The Harlem culture is a part of my DNA. The influence is undeniable. For example, seeing other artist like ASAP Rocky, combine music, style and culture motivates me to do the same for East Harlem. — MDR: Who are some of your other …
