Honey Pack (Remix) – [BFB Da Packman] feat. [Lil Yachty] [DDG]

BFB Da Packman is slowly becoming a name that’s popping up more and more amongst the rap community. This past Friday the rising Houston, based by way of Flint, Michigan emcee dropped a remix to his “Honey Pack” single featuring Lil Yachty and DDG. It took me a while to gravitate to the whole Michigan and Detroit sound but I’ve found myself playing artist in that lane such as Sada Baby, DDG, and Baby Smoove a lot more. One thing that sets BFB Da Packman is his personality. He’s just a naturally funny guy and you can see his comedic side across his social media all the way through his music with his creative and witty bars. In this OshotYoufilmz and Arod2UP shot and directed film BFB, Yachty, and DDG can be seen partying at Sony Digital’s Club Digital with beautiful BBW’s. Watch the visuals for BFB Da Packman’s “Honey Pack” remix featuring Lil Yachty and DDG for yourself after the break.

Asshole – [Lil Yachty] ft. [Oliver Tree]

If you’re somehow not familiar with the name Oliver Tree, you’re still most likely familiar with the bowl cut-having, JNCO Jeans-wearing, scooter-riding musician from his tirades on social media and all other lanes of the internet. While he might be one of the most intriguing and entertaining people in the world, his music is also beyond creative and masterful. I feel like the number of people who can fit seamlessly into his world could be counted on one hand, and Lil Yachty is undeniably one of these artists. It just makes sense that Yachty and Oliver would team up on Lil Boat’s song “Asshole”, a cut off of Lil Boat 3.5 which was the deluxe version of the Atlanta icon’s third edition in the Lil Boat trilogy. Oliver lives one of the most mysteriously interesting lives, and Yachty seems to live a life just as extravagant as it is an imagined world of his own, so the duo just made sense. That’s why, when they decided to drop a music video for this hit that was also written and directed by the wild mind of Oliver Tree, I was immediately sold from the moment I pressed play. The scene is …

Greed – [Lucki] x [Lil Yachty]

Lucki is a Chicago legend who we here have been championing for the better part of a decade now, but lately, he has reached a new level in his career, and today he is back with his new music video for “Greed” featuring Lil Yachty. As the start of the video will show you, it seems like Yachty + Lucki just ran into each other somewhere in (I’m assuming) Atlanta, and they made a spur of the moment decision to shoot the video for this song right then and there. The song finds these two well-respected rappers trading catchy bars back and forth over a dreamy instrumental, it’s one of those records that you’ll have on repeat for an hour straight. The video director, AMD Visuals, did a fantastic job on the backend of this one, so shout out to him. Do yourself a favor and watch this brand new visual below! Produced by Cardo

Royal Rumble – [Lil Yachty] [Krispylife Kid] [RMC Mike] [Babyface Ray] [Rio Da Yung OG] [DC2Trill] & [Icewear Vezzo]

For almost a year at this point, I have been completely enthralled with the music scene in Michigan. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that the Detroit and Flint rap scenes have made the biggest waves in music over possibly the past half-decade or more, and not a day goes by that I don’t hear about some new spitter from the Midwestern hub. Obviously, Tee Grizzley, Sada Baby, and 42 Dugg have seemed to break out of the underground while continuing to receive nationwide support. Although I’m still a big fan of these artists, I think that the underground scene has even more to contribute to the world of music that the rest of the country is going to catch onto sooner or later. I know I’m a huge supporter of the movement coming out of the rising state, but Lil Yachty has also shown his admiration for the crusade coming out of the north, even constantly teasing an entire collaborative project entitled Michigan Boy Boat. While there’s no sort of timeframe of when this is supposed to be released, he has gifted us a few songs featuring some of the most promising underground legends from Michigan, and …

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 …

Baby – [DJ Scheme] ft. [Iann Dior]

DJ Scheme has long been a close friend and acquaintance of ours here at lyrical lemonade, and like a fine wine, he continues to only get better with age. At the beginning of December, he dropped off his debut album FAMILY and it was an absolute smash hit, at least in my mind. He was able to bring all different styles and sonic landscapes to life throughout this 17-song album, and every time I go back and revisit it, I seem to be more and more blown away. Obviously, the features he selected on this project help Scheme provide different stylistic choices, but every single guest plays such an important role in this album’s success. He got names like Skrillex, Joey Bada$$, Ski Mask, Lil Yachty, Ty Dolla $ign, Fenix Flexin, $NOT, and too many others to name in this sentence, but I never imagined seeing some of these talents on the same album let alone the same song. One of my favorite cuts off of the project is definitely “Baby” featuring Iann Dior, and although this is a much more soothing, heartfelt ballad than what we’re used to hearing from Iann, he takes the baton and runs with it. …

Top 50 Chicago Projects of 2020

It’s obvious that 2020 didn’t turn out nearly how anyone expected at the top of the year. With a global pandemic shaking things up, a pivotal presidential election coming to a head, numerous generational talents passing away, and racial injustice protests taking place across the country, it’s safe to say that this year was beyond unpredictable from even the most seasoned psychics. Nonetheless, Chicago persevered like only we know-how, bringing attention to these issues while also divulging into a plethora of other, more personal narratives in the form of music. Throughout the year, some mainstays in the city continued to impress us here at Lyrical Lemonade while other up-and-comers made some very valid, attention-grabbing claims as to why they’re the next rising star that deserves a place at the table. Also worthy of note, Chicago had some truly excruciating losses this year in terms of music legends whose work still shined through as some of the most impressive of the year, primed to carry on their legacy for years to come. All of that said, we’re more than excited to round this farfetched year out with Lyrical Lemonade’s Top 50 Chicago Projects of 2020. This is our 5th year bringing …

Curtis Waters: The Art of Authenticity

Photo by Jovy Bergen and Jocasta Clarke Well, as we come to a close on one of the weirdest years of the past century we reflect on how the massive halt the music industry experienced with its traditional methods of growing artists through festivals, touring, and really anything that comes with having a room full of people collectively wild out together has changed in a major way. What tossed the larger industry engine into a tailspin, became a rare moment of opportunity for 1000s of kids who’s relationship with creating music existed almost entirely within the 4 walls of their bedrooms. We have seen stars emerge who may have not their time in the cultural limelight had society been moving at its regular pace. This year has had disastrous effects for many, but for a few, it has been a time to thrive while young people across the world are being forced to spend more time isolated online. It’s been fun to be a fan of these artists, as watching them get noticed by the masses and seeing their song all over the feed is something that just makes you feel happy inside. Recently, I got the chance to have an …

Top 5 – [The Good Perry] ft. [Nakel Smith]

It has been quite some time since I tuned into The Good Perry’s music, not for any other reason other than I just kind of haven’t seen anything from him recently. It’s completely my fault, though, because he is still one of the most notable underground names in the entire industry. I was first put onto him when he teamed up with friend and superstar Lil Yachty way back when he was still named Burberry Perry, and he was making some of the most distinctive, individualistic music in the entire Rap scene, so he was always an artist I respected and appreciated. His career has taken many different paths since then, but he’s still making some of the wildest, remarkable music that he deserves so much more credit for, in my opinion. His project See You There came out almost exactly a year ago boasting features from Nakel Smith, Matt Ox, Nessly, and others, but even with names such as these, he managed to put his own flair on each and every song unlike anyone else ever could. Revisiting this project to breathe new life into it just about a year later, he decided to drop a music video for …

Not Regular – [Lil Yachty] ft. [Sada Baby]

Over the past year or so, Lil Yachty has seemingly found a second him in the Detroit music scene. Collaborating with a number of rising talents from the area, he has strangely yet thankfully fit in with some of the wildest and most unique personas that hail from the Motor City, and although I for one didn’t see this coming, I’m not complaining about it in the slightest, either. Lil Boat and Sada Baby are definitely no strangers to each other, at this point, and I’m so excited that the dup decided to team up yet again and deliver a brand-new single and music video for their joint effort “Not Regular”. The title of the song makes total sense because neither artist can be considered normal or methodical, and when they get together, the results make this one hundred and ten percent clear. A quick, chaotic instrumental is built through alarming, high-pitched synths, a deep baseline, and crispy percussion that allows both artists to speed up their deliveries and bring out some of their most energetic and charismatic bars to date. As Yachty begins to spit, his lines are beyond quick, and although it might be hard to decipher exactly …
