Premiere: Slizzy Bop – [2219 Lee] [Cash Cobain]

2219 Lee has appeared on our pages several times in the past. His first appearance – and the song that really tipped me off to Lee’s natural run-that-last-line-back abilities – was “HAKEEM” alongside close collaborators Mali Smith and Cash Cobain. Ever since, a slew of high-energy songs have built upon and mastered this inimitable style of music, which leads us to the justifiably titled “Slizzy Bop”: a 2219 Lee x Cash Cobain joint, built around a sample drill flip of Kodak Black’s “Skrt” – because in typical Cash Cobain fashion, of course it is. Premiered with a matching visual component, Lee and Cobain’s latest demonstrates that this type of music doesn’t allow for a passive listen. Sexy drill is a full-body experience, which in the case of “Slizzy Bop,” is perfectly illustrated with a set of dance-heavy visuals shot the same night as Cash Cobain and Chow Lee’s 2 SLIZZY 2 SEXY deluxe release party. As such, you can feel the energy in the air on this one… the streets are crowded, people are dancing at every turn, and the “endless party” appeal of Cash Cobain’s movement-inducing production is at full force. Sit with this one a few times, dance …

PREESH – [AQ]

Every now and then, we all need a reminder to push past our problems and find our inner strength. San Antonio rapper, AQ creates music to get through life’s roughest patches. Hip-hop gives him a distinct opportunity to tell his story. The rising artist has teased his return with a wide variety of singles and projects since his debut release. Now, his second studio album since 2019 is finally here. Showcasing AQ’s work over the last three years, PREESH is the quality comeback fans have been waiting for. To support his new album, the supporting visual for the standout track, “Ghost Town”, was premiered on Youtube. In this song, AQ highlights his upbringing as well as his current emotions toward his stagnant emotional artistic state. “I grew up bored in a small town, Mom says I ran with the wrong crowd, just needed weed at a discount.” One track called “Move”, should be of particular interest to San Antonio fans. It features an appearance from a fellow San Antonio native Madjik tHa SoulRebel. The track is about their journey across the country to Los Angeles to pursue their music career full-time. This record displays a whole new side of AQ and his music – bringing a …

Pink Roses – [SportVVS]

Since appearing on the LL site back in 2020, Maryland’s own SportVVS has been making some very impactful moves in the game and is easily becoming one of my favorite artists who will soon have a huge rise to fame. Delivering tons of solo sounds and stellar guest verses as well, SportVVS is letting it be known that he is here to stay, and he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Dropping off yet another banger, SportVVS is here to premiere his latest video, “Pink Roses”. Every so often, I come across one of those songs that I know is going to be a hit as soon as I press play. Well, this is one of those songs. Immediately, after hearing the 80’s inspired sample in the beginning, I just knew that the rest of the song would be a banger. With a flow of his own and a style that suits him perfectly, “Pink Roses” is a song that is guaranteed to be put in constant rotation for a long time. Speaking to SportVVS about his career, he states: “I feel like I’m just different. Especially coming from the underground scene and being where I’m from. My sound is refreshing …

Lyrical Lemonade Premieres: UFO Fev – Wash The Bills

Spanish Harlem-born emcee UFO Fev is bringing back real rap with his new single “Wash The Bills.” The rising artist teamed up with up-and-coming producer Finn to create a record with hard-hitting wordplay and a gritty delivery style. Directed by Selva Films, Fev takes us on a journey through his neighborhood in a luxury sports car along with Finn as he recipes his signature hip-hop sound that has been regarded by many as an homage to the Golden Era, but with a modern twist. “Wash The Bills” is the first single from the rising artist’s upcoming project Blood On The Bills set to release on October 7. “The reason Wash The Bills was first was a mutual decision between the producer Finn and myself. This project has a lot of topic based records, where I dive into things like taxes for example,” he explained. “I have a record with Ty Farris that’s based around the idea of Uncle Sam being an actual person who collects debts. Stuff like that led us to Wash The Bills which was more braggadocio.” Growing up, Fev studied artists like Big Pun, Jay-Z, and Beanie Sigel. His father was a part of the dance/pop group …

Thanks & Praises – [Key Nyata]

One of the best pieces of advice I typically give to up-and-coming artists is to be as consistent as possible. I mean this in terms of releases and social media presence so fans don’t lose track of what you’re up to and always have your name on their mind. At the same time, you have to be consistent with quality music, because if you put out an overflow of records that are just subpar, it’s not going to really entice people to keep coming back for more. Well, this is just what I think could help, but clearly, I don’t know everything because some artists can take long breaks and come back stronger than ever, and this is the case for Key Nyata who hasn’t released anything new in 4 years. A member of the game-changing rap collective RVIDXR KLVN, Key has clearly not lost even a smidge of his touch when it comes to his track “Thanks & Praises”, which turns out to be such a catchy song that you don’t want to miss out. The jakesand and erl-produced track is simply infectious in terms of everything from the beat to the flow that Key uses, and I couldn’t …

Live From The Lac-[JAMS The Flava Child]

After a successful run of singles spread all throughout the year, Chicago’s own JAMS The Flava Child is feeling charged up and ready to take the rest of the year by storm. Taking the last year to rejuvenate and rebrand, JAMS has been in the lab cooking up dopeness and building a new sound for the fans to be blessed with. One thing about JAMS is that he is one laid-back dude. Super chill, yet knows how to turn a party up. That alone is a perfect summary of what his brand new tape is about. Living that luxury life, kickin’ back, smoking, and overall just vibing through life. At last, here is JAMS’ new project, Live From The Lac. Crowning himself “The smoothest out the Midwest”, JAMS takes that to the heart and knows for a fact that his music must reflect that at all costs. With the “Lac” in the title being shortened from Cadillac, JAMS has grown an immense love for classic cars and old schools. That being said, he aspired to make a tape to reflect that vibe and that setting. The music that you can cruise to in an old school, or those late-night trips in …

I’m Dru! Premiere New Pop Single “Free Show”

Hailing from Long Island, I’m Dru! is an 18-year-old rapper/singer on the rise. As a business major at FAU, I’m Dru! launched a music company that produces his records. While it is still early in his career, the rising artist has already mastered the art of social media with hundreds of thousands of views on his songs on Tik-Tok and Youtube, and over 1 million streams on Spotify and Apple music. This month, DRU returns with his latest single “FREE SHOW”. “Free Show is a song I wrote about a one-night stand, and it was just for fun. I’m so glad people are really rocking with it for real. The creation of this track is something I’ll never forget.” He shared. “Being in the studio with my boys was just an ultimate vibe and so much fun, and I think it really shows in the record. So thankful for everyone showing love because it means more than you would know.” His latest single tells a story while embracing funky beats, catchy melodies, and his fast flow. He even proclaimed this song as his favorite record thus far. This upbeat record shows how far the Long Island native has come already. …

Lola Brooke Premieres Her Latest Single: ‘On My Mind’

If Lola Brooke is not on your radar this year, after reading this article, I hope you get very familiar with her. Standing at 4’9, Brooke is a force to be reckoned with. She is well known in the streets of New York for her deep gritty voice and fierce punchlines. A craft that began in Junior high school, has blossomed into a full-blown career. Growing up, she was influenced by some of hip-hop’s greatest like Missy Elliot, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill, B.I.G., 2 Pac, Meek Mill, and a few others. Today, the Bedstuy native returns with her new single ‘On My Mind’. ‘On My Mind’ is unlike anything we heard from Brooke before. Ahead of her debut EP, the up-and-coming rapper wants her fans to realize how diverse her catalog can be. In the LVTRRAW video, Brooke turns the heat up alongside Lil Rek as both artists embrace a New York love story. Even though this is a love story, Lola still brought out her fatal bars and aggressive flow that I have grown to love. “When I recorded ‘On My Mind’ I wanted people to see that Lola Brooke is a fan of love. There are …

Kelo Of Dopeness and Kaidontrap Premiere ‘Bean’ Ahead Of Upcoming Album ‘Drugs Are Bad’

Lyrical Lemonade has been highlighting Kelo Of Dopeness and Kaidontrap growth this past year. This summer, the brothers are teaming up to drop their new project titled Drugs Are Bad. Today, they released their first single off the album titled “Bean”.Their dance beat single is the perfect track to welcome the summer month. Kelo and Kaidon are the duos we didn’t know we needed. It’s beautiful to hear how their flow complements one another. I enjoy how Kelo sings at the end of his verse and Kaidon jumps in with his smooth punchlines. To witness how both of these artists continue to improve their craft with each release is quite amazing. “I was meeting with Kai and my DJ 270 at the Death Proof house and we were rehearsing in the living room, like a week ago, and my DJ started explaining to us his goal to make sober partying a thing as he lived a sober life but he was still very lit,” Kelo explained. “ I decided right then to name the album Drugs are Bad.” The brother decided to release Bean first since there’s nothing else out that sounds like their new single. It’s one of our …

Premiere: Richie Rozay’s Unites With A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie in “No Love Songs” Video

Up-and-coming artist Richie Rozay and Bronx superstar A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie teamed up on their new single ‘No Love Songs’. The Starr Mazi directed video, premiering below, begins with clips of different news segments about deadly shootings and gun violence occurring in the Bronx. Upon hearing the Lvtto produced track, you may think you’re about to hear a love song, but as the title states, this isn’t your typical love song. Instead, the duo created a song about being from the Bronx, constantly hearing about death, and losing faith in their city. The feeling of experiencing pain, and using drugs as a temporary fix. “I’ma try my best to not make this a love song/Tryna fight depression, I can’t put the drugs down/He dropped out of school, he was interested in cocaine/ Man, they killed that boy and all they shot was one round/ News’ article saying another gang member dead in my city/I’m losing faith like B.I.G. and I’m feeling like I’m Biggie.” The memorable hook mixed with Rozay melodic flow created a passionate record. A Boogie has consigned Rozay in the past and he continues to show his music love. Having the opportunity to feature him on …
