PREMIERE: Check Me Out – [Rucci] ft. [Haiti Babii]

I’m slightly disappointed in myself because I take a good amount of pride knowing a pretty solid amount about the West Coast music scene, and somehow, I let Rucci fall through my fingers. I’ve definitely heard his name before, but I’ve never taken the time to tune in which is unfortunate because he’s definitely making waves in the scene, making a case as to why he needs to be taken more seriously. He has been through a lot in his life and instead of getting down or depressed, he uses music to have fun, pay tribute to those who have been given jail sentences or have departed this Earth too soon, and just show that he’s definitely a force to be reckoned with not only in the studio but in the streets as well. His latest single, which is called “Check Me Out” and features fellow California talent Haiti Babii, is the first single off of his newly announced upcoming mixtape which is the first follow-up to his debut album Tako’s Son. The beat uses heavy, powerful horns or synths of some kind combined with light, elevated piano keys and absolutely thunderous drums to create a foundation that couldn’t possibly …

Dreamer – [Trippie Redd]

Whether you’re a fan of Trippie Redd or not you have to at least give him credit for the insane career he has put together for himself. He’s skyrocketed in terms of success and has formed a fan base through a sound that is truly one of a kind and unlike anything else in the entire industry. He has blazed a trail for many other artists to make a name for themselves in music and even offers assistance through features for certain up and comers that absolutely helps catapult them into the spotlight, giving them that little extra push that might be needed to bring them to the next level. I for one am a big fan of Trippie’s and I have been ever since he first started making a name for himself, so I try my best to tune into all of his new offerings as they consistently come out. His track “Dreamer” came out a couple of months ago and we covered it on Lyrical Lemonade back then so I won’t go into too many details regarding the song itself, but there is new life breathed into this single through a music video that is as intriguing and …

Long Time – [Lil Romo]

Today we have an artist out of Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood that goes by Lil Romo who is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut with the premiere of his brand new music video for “Long Time” featuring Duke Da Beast. Lil Romo is someone that I have been hearing about for a minute now, but not too long ago the homie DJ Hotrod of Power 92.3 recommended that I check him out, and I couldn’t be happier that he helped put me on. Lil Romo is an artist out of the city who has an immense amount of potential for only being eighteen years old, and although he is still so young, he raps which the upmost confidence + gives out game like he’s been around for decades. This might be the first time that you’ve seen Lil Romo on our platform, but it surely will not be the last, take some time to check out this new music video below!

Clap – [Don Toliver]

Without a doubt, I have Don Toliver as the biggest artist to watch out for in 2020. Of course with the pandemic, some artists plans have been reevaluated as far as touring and appearances, but regardless, Don Toliver had managed to make sure that his name has been resonating with fans. With the success of his debut album Heaven or Hell, numerous TikTok trends taking off, and his contributions on features this year with Eminem, Nav, and many others, it’s safe to say that Don Toliver is making his imprint very fastly in his career. Today, he premiered a surprise release of his song “Clap”, from the Road To Fast 9 Mixtape. The Fast & Furious franchise has been around since many of our childhoods, and as of late, they have begun to have some pretty substantial soundtracks to go along with the films. With F9 currently in production, the team has put together a soundtrack of music that is either inspired by, or featured in the film. This film being the last in the franchise, it was important that they casted a stellar cast of artists on the soundtrack–Don Toliver being one of them. On “Clap”, Don Toliver sticks with his usual producers Wondagurl and Frank …

PREMIERE: Highway – [St. Panther]

St. Panther’s arrival into the space is absolutely marveling. Making her debut with the sync placement of her song, “Infrastructure,” on season 4 of the critically acclaimed HBO series Insecure and then a candid and honest performance on her single “These Days,” St. Panther is building a resume of authentic and frankly incredible music. Her unique sound that blends hip hop, r&b, and funk is beautifully chaotic, groove-inducing, and overwhelmingly gripping. To no surprise, her new single “Highway,” released alongside an accompanying music video, is a blueprint of the kind of authentic brand of music and artistry we should begin to expect from the singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Her creative new video for “Highway,” directed by Spencer Ford, is a kaleidoscope of psychedelic progression that captures the overwhelming, and at times out-of-body experience artists feel when pushing their creative juices to the maximum. “Highway” is very much sonically categorized the same way the video is; blood-pumping adrenaline caused by funky bass-lines, hypnotic choruses, and awe-inspiring rap flows. This exploration into something new is told by the video’s somewhat anxiety-inducing point-of-view illustration of a car zipping along an intricate track. The artist is the car, and the creative journey is the road; both …

Premiere: About April (Music Video)-[Alex Banin]

Stellar music is hard to come by, so whenever I receive songs that completely blow me away, I’m endlessly grateful to say the least. Today, it’s only right that I share with the readers what was shared with me and why I think it’s so spectacular. If you’re looking for your latest indulgence, look no further.  An artist named Alex Banin is making an appearance on Lyrical Lemonade today for the release of her brand new song titled, “About April”. The 22-year-old London born artist, grew up in New York, but now is based in Chicago, where she started making music. The new piece that dropped last week has been preforming well on streaming platforms and its only a matter of time before it catches fire and is heard by everyone. The subtle production was truly what caught my ear at first listen. It is strong but doesn’t overpower Alex’s beautiful voice which you truly won’t want to miss out on. The best artists are those who can tell stories just as well as they can sing, and that perfectly encapsulates Alex in totality. In this peaceful and reflective piece, the up and comer takes us on an introspective journey …

Wash Us In The Blood – [Kanye West] ft. [Travis Scott]

“Don’t take me the wrong way, cause God brought me a long way.” -Kanye West The legend that is Kanye West only appears every so often to premiere something—yet alone premiere new music. Whenever fans of Kanye see he appears on Twitter to get some tweets off, it’s safe to assume that something is coming. Rest assured, Mr. West mysteriously re-appeared on the timeline to share some news about all the things he is working on. That includes a “Kids See Ghosts” cartoon alongside Kid Cudi, a new documentary, and his forthcoming album, currently titled God’s Country—executive produced by the legendary Dr. Dre. He also teased a new song as well, and a small snippet of the intro with a release date. Now, anyone who knows Kanye, is well aware by now how he can be with release dates. Kanye releases need to be taken with a grain of salt in order to avoid disappointment. However, Kanye has not let us down this time, for he is here to deliver us his latest single and visual for “Wash Us In The Blood” accompanied by a Travis Scott feature. Coming off of his 2018 release of Jesus Is King, lots of fans were …

Wit My Rounds – [Q Da Fool] x [OhGeesy]

This Friday afternoon I have very happy to be bringing our audience the premiere of the brand new music video for “Wit My Rounds” by Q Da Fool and OhGeesy. When you think of Q, OhGessy, or basically the entire Shoreline Mafia collective, you already know that they make hard-hitting anthems that are perfect for the summertime, and this new joint definitely gave me that type of vibe. The chemistry that these two display on their songs together is special, they can bounce back and forth off of each other without missing a beat, which is exactly what they did on this one. It’s something like friendly competition when these two are attacking the same instrumentals, not like they are trying to one-up each other, but it’s more like their sparring + making each other better! Watch this brand new visual below and if you like what you see/hear then be sure to hit that like button on YouTube to help it circulate!

PREMIERE: Flava – [Brian Brown]

Since releasing his highly-anticipated and much-awaited project Journey a few months ago, Nashville rapper Brian Brown has been continually reaping the new benefits that come with him being the latest artist to captivate the majority of the city’s attention and it is beginning to look like he might be able to be the first artist since Starlito over a decade ago to push through to the mainstream as a Nashville artist. Now by no means am I insinuating that Brown makes any type of mainstream or overly commercial music, and his latest visual for his track “Flava,” produced by Sir Illington, is a soulful and no pun intended, but truly flavorful tune that both inspires and fortifies the soul while also giving you an intriguing look visually into Nashville’s raping and all-consuming gentrification that is chewing up the old side of East Nashville locally referred to as “Out East” that has traded in affordable housing and section-8 homes for condos and hipsters which have done wonders for Nashville’s bottom line and has led to it becoming the fastest growing city in all of the south, but at the cost of these neighborhoods being lost to capitalism and greed forever. Seck has done …

Premiere: Sometimes – [Peter $un]

The self-proclaimed black hippie himself, Peter $un, returns to our pages today for his new music video “Sometimes.” Very much in the same vein of his past releases, “Sometimes” captures the energy of warm sun rays and its ability to put you in a care-free mood. Through an unimpaired delivery, Peter $un effortlessly puts rhymes schemes together that boast his technical ability as a rapper, his poignant questions about life, and the overwhelming need to take a step back and relax. His new music video for “Sometimes” is a visual embodiment of the style and bravado that summarizes Peter $un. Animated lettering, psychedelic tones, and textures create a euphoric and in-your-face world for Peter $un to shine. Exuding impeccable presence and a comfortability that’s translated through the lens, Peter $un details his relentless optimism towards the world around him. The introspection amongst the fun-loving nature that resonates from $un’s personality makes for an artful balance between rap that makes you think and music that makes you feel. Hard to resist a video and song that is brought to life by a combination of groove-laced hip hop and jazz fueled production. Watch the video premiere of “Sometimes” by Peter $un below.
