Akari – [Anwar]

I am always on the lookout for new talent coming out of the midwest, and St. Louis native Anwar is a name that I have been hearing every now and then for damn near a year now, most recently from the homie Matty Wood$. Many people have spoke very highly of Anwar to me so that generally led me to being curious about his music, and although I have peeped a few of his loosies in the past, this brand new project titled “Akari” was my first time sitting down and truly experiencing his music. This six track effort is easily one of the best tapes I have listened to this week, it has the perfect blend of hard hitting beats, abstract flows + well put together bars to keep me and many other listeners entertained. Anwar seems to be more of a free spirit / creative thinker than most of the artist you hear nowadays, his subject matter at times can be grown in the sense of most young adults just don’t touch on some of the topics he speaks on. However, don’t think that he is so abstract that he will go over your head because that is not …

Good Morning – [Matty Wood$]

Matty Wood$ is what I would consider a top dog in the fresh new wave of talent that has been blossoming out of St. Louis, and a couple days back the St. Louis native blessed us with a beautiful new music video for “Good Morning”. I have been covering Matty for quite some time now and this song is by far one of my favorites from him, so when I saw that he teamed up with @TyrisFilms to direct this song I was more than excited. I am not exaggerating when I say that I have probably watched this visual about fifty times today, the record itself has such an addicting and soulful feel to it, match that with the truly stunning views in the video & we have a 10/10. I highly recommend that you check out this new music video below, Matty Wood$ has a ton of potential and this looks to be the start of another great year for him.  

I’ll Be Fine – [Matty Wood$]

Matty Wood$ is one of the best rappers coming out of St. Louis and has been a favorite here for some time now, but he just took a great leap forward in his career with the release of his new album titled “I’ll Be Fine“. I have been listening to Matty Wood$ music for a couple years now and I thought I had a pretty firm idea of what his music is usually like, but he truly impressed me on this album because he used multiple different flows I have never heard from him before, leaving me stunned at often times literally having to check the track list to make sure it was him rapping. The instrumentals on this project paved the way for Matty to do his thing, so shout out to Parker Jazz, Slick, RichieKBeats, Sav, Breland, Luchii, and Mikzy for helping him out. The majority of the credit has to go to Matty though, he came through with a fantastic project and it’s only leaving me more excited for his future, check out this brand new tape below!

Birthing an entirely new wave of music, this city is bringing its own, refreshing taste to the table right now, and needless to say, it has been a beautiful sight to watch for a music fan like myself. Helping to lead the charge out of his home city is an artist by the name of Matty Wood$. If you’ve been reading Lyrical Lemonade for some time now, you’ve probably heard Wood$’ name, but if not, today is the perfect day to get hip, as he just released his brand new, 17-song project, I’ll Be Fine. Denoted by the title, this tape is best seen as a form of self-assurance. Undoubtedly, Wood$ has been a talented hitmaker for some time now, but it’s with this project that he solidifies his stature and puts all of his chips on the table. One song after another, I’ll Be Fine is sun-soaked and charismatic, utilizing a soulful charm to keep listeners entertained throughout, and the result is one of the most exciting pieces of music to come out in recent months.
