“Wake Up” with a creative new offering from Harlem’s 27Delly.

Wake Up is the most recent release from Harlem’s 27Delly, who’s making sure everybody that overslept won’t click “snooze” any longer. This is now my third time covering 27, and each time I’ve been more impressed with his work. A trailblazer, he continues to bend genres and deliveries to adhere to his unique skills, something that’s refreshing in an often saturated modern industry. Polished melodies and R&B-leaning tracks make up the 6-piece project, and each track on the album presents a new arena for 27Delly to play at the highest level. The project starts with an impressive OTP-produced smash entitled “Hit The Town.” The upbeat bass-heavy banger is a familiar sound for long-time 27Delly fans. Then shortly after, the project leads into Delly’s Billboard-approved track, “Gimmie That.” The Caribbean-themed record is an ode to Delly’s West Indian influences. Tracks like “High Road” and the TRAVI-assisted “Lambo On Fire” help keep the EP’s flow strong and make for a wholly well-rounded project.

He recently took the time …

If you’re a fan of Melodic rap, he is one for you! People have been discovering his music through his videos Shotbyjolo.

Spanning 21 tracks, the new project recounts the rough circumstances of his upbringing and emotional setbacks. “My inspiration behind this release is being able to share my story with others.

DOGWOOD – [KINSLOW]

Inspiration and influence; are the two I’s of music that not only allows the musicians before us to continue their legacy but allow the musicians of the future to continue theirs. Louisville native KINSLOW debuts on Lyrical Lemonade today with his latest offering titled “DOGWOOD.” Produced by Kingston, with the visual directed by ‘The Trap Steve’ — the much-anticipated single exceeded its hype and expectations. With the catchy hook and bouncy instrumental, “DOGWOOD” will quickly become a fan-favorite and reach even further than his core fan base to new listeners. “It’s inspired by the street I grew up on, ‘Dogwood Drive’. I first wrote the hook .. which made me recall my childhood/adolescence years .. when I would play basketball and write rhymes. It’s also heavily influenced by [my take on] that Southern Texas sound. That’s the aesthetic I was aiming for.” Immediately upon checking out this record, I instantly caught the vibe of DaBaby’s earlier videos. Not only from the production, but to the style of editing as well. The comedic factor in the visual as well plays a big part in that, and that is exactly the vibe that KINSLOW was going for. “Another influence was ReelGoats .. the director of DaBaby’s videos. I …

Own Pace – [Blu Jay]

When it comes to an artist’s journey to success, there is no rulebook or guideline on how to go about it. Sure, you can look up tips on getting more exposure or figure out different ways to network within the industry, but that will never guarantee success. Once artists begin to realize that each and every one of them has their own path, success seems to find them sooner. That would be the case for the 20-year-old phenom from Charleston, South Carolina, Blu Jay; as he is making a name for himself by staying true to his craft, and respecting the grind as he rises to the top. Making a debut on the Lyrical platforms today, here is “Own Pace” by Blu Jay! What speaks to me most about Blu Jay’s music, is looking at his journey and how much it has progressed, and still is progressing over time. Coming from the days of recording music on his iPhone, Blu Jay went on to drop a handful of singles during the pandemic, but due to the nature of everything that year had in store for us, the singles didn’t get the recognition that they deserve. Not letting that get in …

Virginia rapper WTO Sco continues to build steam with “Never Wanted To Be A Rapper.”

There are a lot of MCs making noise on the east coast as of late, and I’m finding more and more of them hailing from the DMV, specifically. So is the case with WTO Sco, a Virginia rapper making his LL debut with his recent LP Never Wanted To Be A Rapper. The 10-song project screams longevity and consistency, with raw tracks lining it from top-to-bottom. Inspiration from the likes of Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Future, and Boosie is apparent throughout, but paving his own path and creating his own sound in the industry is obvious, too. Joints like “Fr Fr” and “Woah Again” brought me in and had me hooked, while “Fentanyl (remix)” featuring EST Gee became an easy favorite. Recently, the “Fentanyl (Remix)” visual (shot by Grindaholic films) hit one million views on YouTube, a feat not many can claim. The visual portrays the two politicking around Richmond, Virginia, showcasing blinding jewelry and popping out for the club scene. Beautiful editing and visual work use flashy transitions and colorful tones to emphasize the bombastic nature of this joint, and it’s no wonder why it’s hit 1M views. Click the image below to check out the video. Man, I’m excited …

FOMF – [Ab-Soul]

I knew going into this year that it was going to be an amazing 12 months of music, and while I didn’t quite have proof or any reason to back up this thought process, I just had a gut feeling. Sometimes my gut is wrong, but now that we’re just a few weeks removed from 2023, I can say with confidence that my internal anticipation seemed to be pretty damn accurate. Out of all the amazing releases that hit DSPs, Ab-Soul’s return to music was one of the things I anticipated most, and unsurprisingly, he didn’t disappoint whatsoever. After listening to Herbert, I knew immediately that it was well worth the 6 year wait considering each of the 18 songs that span about 66 minutes long is as powerful and refreshing as I could’ve ever dreamed. Alongside Soul comes a who gang of features including Lance Skiiiwalker, Joey Bada$$, Jhené Aiko, Big Sean, SiR, and others. I mean, after more than a half-decade, I would hope that Soulo would pull out all the stops, and he seems to do so without getting too fancy with it, but rather sticking to his roots and showcasing the unmatched lyricism that put him …

whts rght – [whiterosemoxie]

I think there are a handful of artists that I’ve actually become obsessed with over the past 12 months or more. Sure, there are countless artists that I enjoy and will tap in with new releases when I can, but I’m talking about the emcees who I don’t think I go a day without listening to their music. One of the first musicians who comes to mind on this front is whiterosemoxie, one of Detroit’s most promising young prospects as well as one of the people in this cutthroat business that I have been blessed to be able to get to know and call a friend. I just think he is one of the biggest gems in this industry, and although he has already signed with 300 Entertainment, amassed tens of millions of streams across platforms, and performed at massive shows like Rolling Loud, HIVE, and even during halftime at his hometown basketball team’s (the Detroit Pistons), I think he is just barely getting started. His potential is endless, which is why I say that, and as we gear up for his upcoming debut album HUMAN BEHAVIOR, he has delivered some truly indescribable music. Just the other day, moxie kept …

Slaughter Gang’s Next Star Yung Sinn Shares His Latest Single “Da East” Featuring 21 Lil Harold

  Slaughter Gang Entertainment was created in 2017 by rapper 21 Savage in partnership with Epic Records. The hip-hop icon has done a remarkable job finding rising talent throughout various cities. His label is home to 21 Lil Harod, SG Tips, Big Bratt, 1 Mute Baby, Real Recognize Rio, and Yung Sinn. While I covered a few of these artists on Lyrical Lemonade in the past, I haven’t had the opportunity to dive into Yung Sinn. The Georgia rapper caught my eye since the release of his “CD Freestyle,” one of his breakout tracks from 2022. Sinn’s sound cannot be categorized, each track he releases has something different to offer. His highly anticipated single “Da East,” featuring 21 Lil Harold was officially released last week after being leaked on YouTube a few months back with over 50k plays. This single is another reason Sinn should be on your watchlist in 2023. His flow is unlike another artist I have heard, his voice is capable of adapting to any beats he gets on. On December 27, you can expect Yung Sinn to release his new mixtape Wrong Turn.

Test 11 – [Pardyalone]

There have been too many artists that have impacted me personally this year alone to even begin tallying up the numbers. I love this because I can look back at where I was last year and see how much I’ve grown as a human being, and when there is a single artist that pops into my mind and makes me truly appreciate their art above almost anyone else I’ve come across this year, that’s saying a ton. Pardyalone is this artist because although I may not listen to him constantly due to the raw, emotional nature of his music, there are certain times when I simply need to turn on his songs to get through certain struggles and moments of pain. I don’t cry often, and that’s not a toughness thing. I wish I did cry more, but it just doesn’t happen for some reason. When I need to shed a few tears, let my emotions out, and try to move past the speed bump that stands in front of me, I head right to Pardy’s Spotify profile and the waterworks completely unleash. That says so much about his music, at least to me, because the way he puts his …

LFC – [K. Charles]

If I’m being completely honest, not every single song I write about is something I’ll actually go on and continue listening to regularly. There’s just not enough time in the day for that, and even though I am often transparent and say what I will or won’t continue listening to, I still have a hard time with certain artists who make a track I love but then go on to underwhelm me with other releases. This isn’t applicable to all artists, though, and sometimes it just takes something really attention-grabbing to make me realize how much I’ve been sleeping. This is the case for Miami phenom K. Charles, a rising emcee that I’ve had on my radar for quite a while now, but really needed something even more special to finally open my eyes to his true potential. That’s where his brand-new project LFC comes into play because it really made me sit back and realize just how much of an actual artist this hitmaker truly is. With. 16 songs spanning almost 40 minutes long, K. Charles brings the heat during every single second of the effort’s runtime, and he wasn’t playing whatsoever. With the exclusion of any feature or …
