Creepy Nightmare – [(Sic)boy] ft. [Lil Aaron]

Music is something that never fails to surprise and impress me, and I feel like I learn something new about this industry every single day, which helps me become even closer to this form of expression, and that’s something I’ll be forever grateful for. While Lil Aaron has always been one of my favorites, I find out about new artists through him all the time, with (Sic)boy being the most recent talent he put me onto. After doing some digging, I found out that he is one of the first artists to bring J-rock, otherwise known as Japanese rock, together with hip-hop, much like Aaron did with punk rock and hip-hop in the United States. While J-rock seems to have similar sounds as its American relative, it works just as well with hip-hop as its American cousin, so when I saw Aaron and (Sic) team up for their song “Creepy Nightmare”, the results were just as amazing as I expected. I also didn’t realize that the music video was directed by Daniel Jordan K and his Overcast team, so you already know it’s a visual you need in your life. Opening up, (Sic) is surrounded by a rough and tumble-looking …

Mr. Solo Dolo III. – [Kid Cudi]

Generational legend Kid Cudi finally released a nostalgic visual to his incredibly successful track, “Mr. Solo Dolo III.,” one of his most popular singles off his latest album, Man on the Moon III: The Chosen. I’m partial, but there’s few things in the music industry that I enjoy more than a soothing Kid Cudi hum over a slow, synth-heavy beat. ‘Cudder’ brought back that immaculate style with “Mr. Solo Dolo III,” immediately tagging it as one of my favorites from the project. Growing tired of “lyric videos” or “visualizers” on YouTube, I was excited to hear there would be an official video release for the song. Releasing just four days ago, the visual produced and directed by Jason Goldwatch is precise in what it was trying to achieve. The mellow, drawn-out humming and blended vocals call for a dreary, dim-lit video, and Goldwatch delivered. Nearly every scene pictures Cudi sparking up, adding even more of a trippy, relaxed feel that the mystical track already accomplished. Clips of Cudi in hazy recording studios with slowed motion effects and hallucinogenic color scheme exude a calming aura that long-time listeners have obviously longed for, and new listeners have welcomed, with the video already …

Back To The Bars episode 1-[Reno Shakur]

“So for me to be the one I gotta give this shit both my lungs coming from my heart not just my tongue and it might take long but I just can’t run. I’m more than a rap major put it on my soul like a air force one” – Reno Shakur Atlanta, Georgia artist Reno Shakur returns to Lyrical Lemonade with a fire freestyle series titled “Back To The Bars.” Shakur shared that each organic rap freestyle will come directly from his heart, and the first episode certainly achieves just that. Despite only lasting two minutes Reno successfully says a lot as he touches on loss, depression, and overall struggle. Unsurprisingly there’s plenty of bars, and the flow is as impressive as your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper. The instrumental is mellow which allows for Shakur to hone the spotlight and clearly convey each lyric with its proper level of emotion. Visually the simple COLORS esque background provides a genuine setting for expression as the listener taps into the ambitious, yet burdensome world of Reno Shakur. Peep the first episode below!

ITS JUST ME – [Diiiiiesel]

Although his name might be a little out there, Diiiiiesel is an artist that has been grinding in the industry for quite a few years. After producing for the better part of a decade, he decided to incorporate some vocals, and if we know anything about rapper/producers, it’s the fact that they are able to create the exact sonic landscape that they have in mind and they don’t have to trust anyone else to give them beats that fit well with their vocals. Even though he can be quite elusive and doesn’t drop music very often, that just makes the music he releases even better because you know he puts his all into his craft and doesn’t release things until they’re 100% ready. Most recently, he decided to drop a 3 song EP entitled ITS JUST ME, and after giving it one listen all the way through already, I couldn’t help but write about it. Opening up with “I CANT DO NUN FOR YA”, his production is lighthearted, airy, and dream-like as he utilizes a plug-style beat that sounds like it’s right out of the world of a Nintendo game, and that’s just the beginning. As he moves on throughout …

Old News – [My Favorite Color]

I believe about a week ago, My Favorite Color dropped a brand-new song entitled “Old News”, and it has had a place on my playlist ever since. It’s just so energetic and bubbly while also showing off exactly how precise MFC’s flows can truly be, making it a record I won’t soon forget about for even a second. Luckily, MFC is back with a Taylor Bonin-directed music video for this hit track, and I couldn’t be more excited. Considering he has a name like My Favorite Color, his videos are never anything less than vibrant, and with such a creative mind, his videos truly never disappoint, with this one being no different whatsoever. He’s always one to keep the child within himself alive, and as it opens up, this is on full display once again in his room, where he wakes up and we see a bright red comforter on his bed as well as a checkerboard carpet and a plethora of old school video games strewn about on the ground. Waking up and getting ready for the day, he throws on his multicolored, glitter-covered JW Anderson Converse before hopping in the back of a pickup truck to get dropped …

All Talk – [midwxst]

If you’re familiar with my writing and all of the artists I truly mess with, it should come as no surprise that midwxst is one of my current favorite artists right now. Luckily, I had the chance to meet him in person at the Summer Smash this last weekend and I’m just excited to report that he’s legitimately one of the most down to earth, chill guys in the industry, and that’s a breath of fresh air after meeting some other artists who are just high maintenance all-around. What I didn’t realize was the fact that he decided to release a brand-new song entitled “All Talk” the other night which is a banger in every sense of the word, and he kept the fun going with an amazing new Trey Lyons-directed music video that is something you need to see to truly appreciate. Here, he seems to hang out around a classic-looking home where he just kicks back and relaxes without a worry in the world. One of my favorite scenes comes from a greenscreen edit where he is surrounded by a white backdrop and little, clear bubble-looking orbs, and while this might not be the craziest scene I’ve ever …

Old News – [My Favorite Color]

Ever since the homie put me onto My Favorite Color’s music a handful of months back, I’ve been tuning in pretty religiously. He is just so versatile, goofy at times, and all-around talented, making him a person that isn’t only someone I need to have on my radar, but someone I want to have on my radar. Even though he has been relatively quiet in recent history, he has continued to be active on social media and make sure that his fans are constantly enthralled with him, so when he dropped his latest song “Old News”, we were all ready for it and I couldn’t have been more excited to share it with you all. Produced by the one and only ID Labs, we are greeted by a very mischievous pan flute that is eventually coupled with crisp percussion and booming drums for a very versatile foundation that gives MFC free reign to do anything he pleases with this beat. As he begins, he mumbles into the microphone about how hungover he is, but how he needs to persevere and get to work, showing just how dedicated he is to his craft. Following this, he delivers some of the most …

Scars – [NGHTMRE] & [Yung Pinch]

Although my taste in music always varies day to day, there is nothing like knowing there’s an artist that is just chill and gives off good vibes, even if some of the subject matter they’re talking about might not always be the most uplifting. When it comes to Yung Pinch, he has become one of my favorite artists ever, and while he has the West Coast beach vibes that I love, he doesn’t necessarily sound at all like any of his other California counterparts. While I’m not as familiar with NGHTMRE, Pinch has been known to work with some EDM producers and DJs in the past, so when I heard their song “Scars” not too long ago, I was definitely a fan. Since then, they have come out with a Winter Halter-directed music video that combines with the track wonderfully, and even though I’m a couple of weeks late to the party, I couldn’t let this one go unnoticed. Opening up, Pinch is hanging out inside of a very modern-looking home full of wide windows, white walls, and a very interesting floor plan. The white walls are perfect for this visual considering they utilize them to allow the various different …

Love Music – [Lil Yachty]

Just a couple of months ago, Lil Yachty released his hit song “Love Music” which was a blithe, easygoing, and carefree record that just allowed Yachty to send a little note to the woman he has his eye on to let her know just how much he thinks about her and all of the things that they could potentially be. While it might not be the greatest Lil boat song of all time, it definitely serves a great purpose and it’s not offensive whatsoever, so I can’t hate on it even slightly. In fact, I was even more excited to find out that late last week, he dropped a music video for the record that made me admire the track so much more than ever before. As things open up, we are introduced to a world full of colors and sweet treats like ice cream Sundays, fruit rollups, cotton candy, and more, with everything coming together for a scene that even Willy Wonka would salivate over. When he begins to sing, he is inside of a very bright, white room that is accented with little cotton candy clouds and life-sized pinwheels before a lovely lady who serves as his love …
