Watch the BTS for Lil Yachty’s “Poland” Video

Last week on Thursday we were sitting here in the Lyrical Lemonade office in Chicago, and a snippet of Lil Yachty’s “Poland” music video had just dropped and was going viral. All of the guys around the office had the track stuck in their heads and we were watching the moment unfold live in front of our eyes when suddenly, Cole walked into the kitchen and yelled “I’m going to New York tomorrow to shoot Poland with Yachty!”. The next morning, Cole + our BTS cameraman Noah Keckler were on a flight to New York where they spent the day shooting for Yachty in SoHo – and we just dropped the behind-the-scenes from the shoot on our Lyrical Lemonade 2 channel! The music video itself has already accumulated 2.5 million views in about 18 hours, and it is currently the #2 most trending video on YouTube! Take a few minutes out of your day to see how this masterpiece was created below!

Poland – [Lil Yachty]

Every social media platform has been jam-packed for the past week or so with memes and content based on Lil Yachty’s snippet for this record “Poland” which officially dropped on DSP’s last night. Lyrical Lemonade has a very close relationship with Lil Yachty, so it made perfect sense to fully capitalize on this moment and connect for the new music video, which just dropped a few minutes ago! You will find Yachty + Cole roaming the streets of New York, where Yachty took a brave and courageous adventure to travel all the way to Poland via train, securing the wock in the process and blessing the citizens + instantly improving their quality of life. Rumor has it that taking the wock to Poland is actually a great metaphor for this game of life that we all play – many experts have been doing the science to try to figure out what it truly means. You can find many of these theories in the comments section under the video, enjoy!

Poland – [Lil Yachty]&[F1LTHY]

When you look at music’s history of celebrated singers, names like Barbara Streisand, Beyoncé, and Celine Dion decorate the pantheon of artists who wield their vibrato-laden voices like the noble King Arthur with his sword, or the troubled Van Gogh with his paintbrush. Joining these legendary singers today is none other than Atlanta singer/songwriter Lil Yachty with his newest release “Poland” – produced by none other than F1LTHY himself. Synthesizing seasoned and dulcet vocal tones with a modern rage flair, “Poland” sees Lil Yachty at his strongest since the halcyon days of “One Night” and “Minnesota”. Lil Yachty sings “woooOOOooOOOOOOooock” in a manner resembling a sweet whisper fading into the wind’s infinite majesty, every moment a sacred gift from one of the best artists alive at present. It leaves me without speech, and yet I type. Perhaps there is nothing left to say about “Poland” aside from the simple fact that it once again establishes Lil Yachty as not only a permanent fixture in modern music’s cultural canon, but a generational force of creative brilliance that mankind may never see again. Check out Lil Yachty and F1LTHY’s newest release “Poland” below:    

Brisco Bands Recruits BabyTron On “Actions Speak Louder”

One of the best parts about discovering new music from aspiring artists is watching their growth throughout their careers. While every artist’s growth looks different, one common goal they all have is to create beautiful records. I recently came across Nathan Nieves, also known as Brisco Bands hailing out of Vineland, NJ. He has only been creating music for two years, but his accomplishments have not gone unnoticed. Growing up listening to 80/90s freestyle with his parents, his ear for music is very diverse. Looking up to artists such as Tory Lanez, Lil Yachty, and Post Malone, Brisco knew he had to put in hard work and determination to build a lasting career. So far, Brisco already accumulated over one million views and plays all together across all streaming platforms. Most recently, he had the opportunity to tap in with BabyTron on “Actions Speak Louder.” Produced by WaVyMason, Brisco came across BabyTron rapping over a freestyle sample and reached out to him to have the verse on his single. Both artists came together to produce a fire track. Check out their single below.

We All We Got – [Internet Money]

Ever since Internet Money dropped their debut album B4 the Storm back in 2020, I knew that they had solidified their reign in the hip-hop world for years and even decades to come. I mean, I think that their dominance was already well known after producing for world-renowned stars, but considering they seemed to always be behind the scenes as the masterminds behind these bangers, the general public or casual listener might not have known just how big of a role they played in the music business. After the album dropped, though, their names were everywhere, whether it was as a collective or as individual producers, and this has only continued to snowball into them becoming one of the biggest production powerhouses that the world has ever, and most likely will ever see. Obviously, quite some time has passed since this album was released, and although I have been hungry for more ever since, I had extremely high hopes for their impending EP We All We Got which was slated to release on Friday, August 19th. Now that it is out, there is no denying their star power or pull in the industry, gifting us with 6 songs that lead …

She Want Some More – [Internet Money] ft. [Ken Car$on] & [Lil Tecca]

When considering different powerhouses in the hip-hop industry currently, the list doesn’t extend very far at all without Internet Money coming into the discussion. The collective of producers took over a handful of years ago, and it seems like ever since, they have had a hand in some of the biggest hits in the business, so it’s obvious that they’re not ones to mess with. They also have a select few artists that they regularly work with on a variety of projects, and even though these emcees are people we’ve come to expect to work with IM, they never fail to impress every time they drop something new. I have been waiting patiently for a follow-up to the label’s next big project after their massively successful 2020 debut album B4 THE STORM, and even with the release of countless bangers ever since, I don’t know if I’ve been as excited about anything as I am for their upcoming EP WE ALL WE GOT which is set to release on August 18th. The tape will feature 6 songs and include artists like Lucki, Destroy Lonely, Yeat, Lil Yachty, and more, and the collective’s brand-new single “She Want Some More” featuring Ken …

Rich Off Pints 3 – [Icewear Vezzo]

As Detroit rap music grows in popularity by the day, so do the artists making this irreplicable and undeniably great style of music. While artists like Lil Yachty have placed a spotlight on the scene, this has only caused emcees to go harder and want to prove themselves even more, and that has led to some of the greatest verses and collaborations in modern music, at least in my opinion. One of the most notable figures in the entire Midwest is now Icewear Vezzo, a man full of limitless talents that continue to impress me with every new release. His 2021 series Rich Off Pints featured two editions that accumulated over 150 million streams total and considering the fact that he was still just finding his footing, there is literally no way to predict exactly how big he’s going to be. This is mind-boggling because he’s already a legend, so the fact that he has an entire career ahead of him just scrambles my brain in the best possible way. As he geared up to release the third and final part of this series, his buzz was through the roof, but now that it is out, I am excited to …

Crunk Is Still Alive With Duke Deuce’s Latest Project ‘Crunkstar’

Duke Deuce is making a new lane in the music industry, and his latest project ‘Crunkstar, is a reflection of how far he has come in a short amount of time. Duke has teased fans with his new album since last year. However, this body of work was well worth the wait. The 20 tracklist features collaborations with Lil Yachty, Babyface Ray, Doe Boy, Rico Nasty, Gloss Up, Slimeroni, Co Cash, Glorilla, and DJ Tootz. The self-proclaimed King Of Crunk also linked up with some of the hottest producers in the game like Metro Boomin, Juicy J, Hitkidd, Pyrex Whippa, Duke Nitty, Allen Ritter, and more. Duke’s new album featured his recent single ‘ CRUNKSTARZ’, one of the best singles I have heard from the Memphis rapper this year. While fans are used to hearing his crunk sound, this song was much smoother and shows how versatile his flow can be. On this album you also hear the melodic intensity of “Animosity” ft Lil Yachty, then there’s the party-banger sound on “Flip Da Switch” ft. Juicy J, and the electric guitar-laden exorcism of “Living Life”.  Just last week, it was announced that Duke will kick off a Crunkstar Tour this Summer! Check …

The 2022 Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash Through My Eyes: Full Weekend Recap

Preface Yes, this article is super long and tedious, my bad…. Forewarning, if you’ve already read my other recaps for each individual day, skip to the end for a few words of admiration to the LL family, from me! Every year, the Summer Smash seems to get bigger, better, and more insane than ever before, and 2022 is definitely no exception. Unfortunately, I missed the first year or two because of one reason or another, so 2021 was actually my first time experiencing this event live and in person. At the same time, though, I had been to various other concerts hosted by LL dating all the way back to Lil Uzi Vert’s first-ever Chicago performance way back in April of 2016, so I know how we throw down at live events, and I also know just how loyal, supportive, and turnt up our fans get every chance they get. 2022 had some curveballs thrown at the team including a detrimental storm that almost paused the entire festival, but thanks to the consistently hard-working and ride-or-die group of individuals who put this fest together, the show went on without a hitch! I just want to clarify that this article is …
