In Real Time – [Martin $ky]

Martin $ky is a Chicago treasure who has been a staple within our community for the better part of a decade now, and while recently browsing through Soundcloud, I came across his brand new project titled “In Real Time”. Martin $ky is the embodiment of a creative is, when he was rapping he was easily one of the hottest in the city, but he was always the rawest when it came to producing. At some point, he decided to stop rapping to fully focus on the producing side of things, which was something not many people understood at the time, but to me, it’s the best decision he could have ever made. Martin is one of, if not the best producer that Chicago has to offer, and his latest work has only helped drive home that point. This project here, presented to us by the platform Radio Juicy, is just about twenty-nine minutes of pure bliss. Martin outdid himself on this one man, no more talking about it though, press play below!

Manifesto – [Melo Makes Music]

Chicago creative Melo Makes Music has been a favorite here on our lemon filled pages for some years now, and this weekend he is back on our pages with the release of his brand new track titled “Manifesto”. The funny thing about this song is that it was the focal point of a funny video that went viral this week on Worldstar, the vide found Melo + his friends shooting this music video in their backyard, as just a few feet away on the other side of a fence, an older white couple watched what was happening in confusion. This song itself is straight FIRE, Melo linked up with superproducers Martin $ky + IKON who always make magic happen, and with the addicting beat Melo made atgubly the best song of his career so far. Don’t take my word for it though, check it out for yourself below!

6° – [Melo Makes Music]

Melo Makes Music is one of the many gems that make up the Chicago music community, and today the extremely skilled creative is back on our pages with his brand new offering titled “6°”. I have been familiar with Melo Makes Music for almost half of a decade now, I have always thought that he had star-like potential, but lately, he has really been growing as an artist & it sounds weird but his music & appearance has become more polished + star-like. Not to mention that Melo has been making power moves and working his ass off, so it’s only right that he has got into this newfound position to excel, he worked hard to put himself there. This single was solid to me and it’s only leaving me more eager for a full-length tape from Melo, but for the time being get in tune with his latest release by pressing play below! Produced by Martin $ky & IKON

10.22.19 – [Martin $ky]

The legend Martin $ky has blessed us yet again, this time around in the form of a brand new instrumental titled “10.22.19”. As I thoroughly described in my recent post about Martin’s high school, I am a huge fan of Martin and whenever he drops some new material I am always quick to listen, and more times than not the beat becomes a soundtrack to my week and I can already tell that’s where this new release is heading. It’s a super chill & low-fi instrumental that’s only just over a minute in length but trust me when I say it’s well worth the listen, I’ve already ran it back at least a dozen times. Stream this brand new beat below and if you enjoy it give it a like on Soundcloud!

The Talents To Come Out Of Homewood Flossmoor High School

Over the past five years of covering the Chicago music scene, interviewing artists, and making relationships with these creatives, I have noticed something that I believe is super intriguing: there have been so many talented individuals who went to Homewood Flossmoor High School at (or around) the same time. It’s not too often that you see this many extraordinary creatives come out of the same place at once — at least I have never heard of something like this before — but even more so, I think it’s a rarity for to have this type of talent come out of the same school especially in the same field. I believe that a big part of this should be credited to the opportunities that Homewood Flossmoor provides to their students, in all avenues, but especially in the music field. The school has engaged students in music industry classes, Jazz orchestra courses, holding rap contests (and giving out prizes to the winners), shooting music videos for their senior students at times, giving them their own radio show to practice freestyling + DJ’ing, and they even take their bands on extraordinary trips to places like Japan. It’s crazy to think about what can …

By Chance – [Tim Legend] x [Martin $ky]

A South Carolina based creative that goes by the name of Tim Legend is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut this morning with his brand new offering titled “By Chance” ft. Martin $ky. If you are a seasoned reader here then you know how much that I love Martin $ky’s instrumentals, he is a Chicago treasure and anything he touches turns into gold, so I was eager to jump into this one when I saw it on my Soundcloud feed. I always enjoy when talented creatives come together to make some dope music because it often times leads me to dope artists I wasn’t previously familiar with, and that is the case with Tim Legend on this track, because I checked out the rest of his catalog after listening to this one and it is phenomenal. Anyways, go ahead vibe out to this new beat below.

That Feeling When – [Martin $ky]

I have been ranting and raving at the pure skills that Martin $ky possess on this website for at least four years now, and he is still out here doing his thing and thriving, and most importantly has returned with his new beat titled “That Feeling When” featuring jamvvis & funkywhat. It’s not often you see producer do collabs together but in this case it came out beautifully, this is a laid back yet enticing offering that anyone can enjoy, but what else can you expect from the young legend Martin at this point? Stream this flawless new instrumental below and if you enjoy it don’t forget to give it a like on Soundcloud.

High Vibrations – [Melo Makes Music]

Melo Makes Music is a Chicago native who we have been fans of here at Lyrical Lemonade for some years now, and late last night he unleashed an awesome new record titled “High Vibrations” and it’s the best thing I have heard so far today. I have enjoyed countless songs from Melo Makes Music in the past but this is 100% his best offering to date in my opinion, and I believe that a good chunk of his fan base would agree with me. This is seriously one of the best instrumentals I have heard this far into 2019, so shout out to Martin $ky & IKON for blessing Melo with the beat to make this possible. The good thing for us fans is that more music from Melo & super producer Martin $ky is on the way, as their ODYSSEY FUN WORLD EP is set to drop at some point in the near future. I am very excited to see where Melo takes it from here, but until we reach that point press play below.
