Change My Mind – [Lucus]

I’ve posted quite a bit about Lucus over in 2019 but for good reason, he has a lot of good music. Today the teenage crooner is back with a new single entitled “Change My Mind.” This new record features some star power behind the boards as it’s co-produced by KC Supreme and Nick Mira. I group Lucus’ sound with some other SoundCloud singers I’m enamored by like Koi and Chris Miles. All three of them have really great song content and ride instrumentals really well with their vocals to make the tracks appealing. I think Chris Miles is a little bit ahead of Koi and Lucus but I also believe that is because of age mostly. I think within a couple of years Lucus could quite possibly have a top 40 hit on his hands if he keeps progressing and surrounds himself around the right team and situation. Stream Lucus’ somber new single “Change My Mind” for yourself below.

Young Thug Solidifies His Superstar Status on ‘So Much Fun’

By Lee Mcintosh It has been nearly six years since Young Thug emerged into the spectrum of the masses, and not too many artists can say that they have had a career quite like his. Coming onto the scene sounding much different than everyone else, Thug received a lot of criticism for his style of rap, his actions, and his overall persona. As the years passed, his notoriety in the rap game is like no other–proving he was way ahead of his time. After teasing fans with his official debut album Hy!£UN35 (Hi Tunes), it eventually became nothing but a myth. Will we still get it?–the world may never know. However, here we are in the year 2019 and Thugger has finally blessed his fans with the release of his debut album So Much Fun. This project could not have come at a better time in his career. He has achieved a new level or stardom–much bigger than he would have had if he originally released a debut album in 2016. The success of his YSL compilation album Slime Language and birthing the talents of Gunna, Lil Keed and Lil Duke, proves his talents as not only an executive, but a tastemaker. Nonetheless, the fans …

Behind the Music: Highlighting the Producers of Today’s Sound

By: Lee Mcintosh When it comes to creating great music, the artists are the ones who receive most of the recognition for the creation of the song. Their name is what’s attached to the song, their flows, their likeness, and even the features that the artist may have. However, the song making process all begins with one entity… the producer/s. No matter how creative the lyrics may be, how great the artist’s cadence sounds, the beat behind it all is a huge factor behind the overall appeal of the song, and that is what moves people and captures their attention as soon as they hit play. We are in a different era of music now. Technology has advanced to a point where producers and artists don’t have to be in the studio together anymore. This can be a gift and a curse at the same time. Often so, producers may send over a beat pack to an artist and then they select the songs they want and don’t want. From there, the studio session may be recorded or put on Instagram live, and the producer may be nowhere in sight. This may create confusion as to who actually made the …

Used To – [Ryster]

“Used To” is an emotional outpour of emotions. Ryster was sick of being mistreated by his last fling, who has caused his mental health to take on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The song really tugs on the heartstrings as Ryster, brings out every ounce of sentimental feeling with his signature croons. Within this year, the 17-year-old singer from Presidio, Texas has created quite the name for himself racking up just over 100,000 total streams on SoundCloud. What reels in listeners is Ryster’s signature sound, it’s definitely something you’d distract yourself with while you’re down and you’re emotions are high, which is a feeling I’m sure everyone can relate to. Notable records in his catalog such as “Without Her”, “Lovesick”, & “Told You” feature production from Internet Money producers Nick Mira and Sidepce. Stream Ryster’s latest single, “Used To” produced by Nick Mira and Ryan Bevolo below.

Our 50 Favorite Wiz Khalifa Songs

In the music world, influence manifests itself in many different ways. Whether it be sonically — changing the sounds that artists use and often creating some sort of new trend and/or subgenre in the process — or aesthetically — changing the “cool” styles in music and the lifestyles that artists speak about in their songs — influence can arrive packaged as a quick viral moment or a lasting flame, both of which hold value in their own rights.  Pittsburgh’s own, the Taylor Gang representative himself, Wiz Khalifa, is one of the rare talents who comes around and entirely shifts the culture in both of the aforementioned ways. Especially when he first came out, Wiz’s lanky, tattooed build and effortlessly cool stoner lifestyle made him a genuinely alluring artist, and while his personal style (snapbacks, the dyed patch of hair, etc.) was worthy of mention, the music was there to back it all up. Simply put, Wiz’s style, both on the mic and off, quickly set a standard for creatives and other artists to congregate toward, marking him as one of music’s most underrated culture-shifters of the last decade or so. Even further, beyond the influence that Wiz has had on a …

OKAY – [poorstacy]

There aren’t very many producers out there that have been able to build and foster talent quite like Nick Mira. An artist that has been working with Mira heavily as of recent is poorstacy and what they have been releasing has caught the attention of rap fans across the globe. “OKAY” dropped a few days ago on poorstacy’s SoundCloud, which is the only place to find his music at this time. The single begins with unassuming strings that takes a drastic turn as the 808 kicks in and the beat goes super saiyan. Throughout the song, poorstacy shows his ability to craft self-reflecting lyrics, then deliver them in a somber yet energetic way. Although this is poorstacy’s first post on Lyrical Lemonade, don’t be surprised if you see this name pop up more frequently. There is a reason Nick Mira works this closely with only a handful of artists, he can spot talent and has definitely found one with massive potential. Stream “OKAY” below and be sure to check out the other tracks on his page.

Lyrical Lemonade Presents: The Abby Jasmine Q&A

Abby Jasmine is one of the most talented new upcoming artists in the game, I recently got the chance to meet her while speaking on a panel at SXSW a couple of weeks ago, and then when she was in Chicago the other day for a concert with T-Pain I thought why not bring her through our office for an interview for the website? One thing about Abby that stands out is her unbelievable charisma and her stage presence when performing, she appears like an experienced veteran although she is just only twenty years old, which is exactly why she is touring the country on with the OG T-Pain at this very moment. That crazy part is that I haven’t even mentioned her stellar vocal abilities and her crafty song making ability, and impressive catalog she has created up to this point. On top of all of this she has an amazing team backing her over at Cinematic, so the sky is truly the limit for this young superstar. I am extremely excited to see where she goes from here but I expect nothing but the best for her, so go ahead and get in tune with the New York native by learning …

COLDHEARTED EP – [Bernard Jabs]

Whether you’re a musician, an accountant, a waiter, or any other job under the sun, it’s always important to learn how to have fun with your career. Take your job seriously and be the best that you can, but don’t take yourself too seriously. Few artists embody this sentiment better than 17-year old Def Jam signee, Bernard Jabs. And yes, I said 17-years old. Both on and off the mic, this Georgia-bred talent radiates energy. There’s never a dull moment if Jabs is involved, and this certainly carries over to his music, as the budding talent has grown a loyal following thanks to electrifying singles and a social media-savvy marketing approach. He knows how to utilize the resources around him but he’s also authentic as can be, always dropping snippets and garnering buzz where he can, and consequently growing his ever-increasing base of dedicated listeners along the way. With this, even as a high school student, Bernard Jabs has signed to Def Jam, toured with Pusha T, and developed a considerable following of fans, none of which he has seemed even slightly underprepared for. The truth is, for Jabs, his determination spans far beyond his years, pointing to an incredibly …
