Rich Homie Quan Presents His New Album “Family & Mula – Reloaded”

If you know anything about the music scene in Atlanta, it’s that many new sounds were created in the thriving city over the years. Rich Homie Quan, also known as Dequantes Lamar, emerged on the scene in 2013 and developed a sound that would inspire artists for generations to come. Throughout his career, Quan has been nominated for Best New Artist and Rookie of the Year from BET, earned a spot on the 2014 XXL freshman class list, and went double platinum independently. While the platinum-selling rapper reached many milestones over the years, he is ready to reinvent himself after taking some time off to focus on what matters most. To celebrate his 33rd birthday, Rich Homie Quan released a new body of work titled Family & Mula, which features eight songs and a single feature from NoCap. This project gave listeners a glimpse of what Quan created during his downtime and how his music has changed due to fatherhood.   This month, I had the opportunity to speak with the Atlanta legend about the legacy he has built and what we can expect to come. Check out our interview below. Lyrical Lemonade: What was it like being from Atlanta in 2011 …

Where the Shooters Be – [SleazyWorld Go]

As we approach the end of the year, I always find myself looking back on the events that unfolded in the world of rap since January to see who I think had a bigger year than the rest. Sure, there are always emcees who were big that got bigger, and then there are the artists who came out of nowhere and blindsided the industry with an entirely new sound that you couldn’t ignore even if you wanted to for whatever reason. When looking at 2022 so far, a few notable names come to mind. Locally, I think PGF Nuk had an absolutely magnificent year, breaking out of the local scene to become a nationwide gem. Yeat continued his world domination tour and became a household name and a character in pop culture, not just the music industry. In terms of overall notoriety and proving themselves to be a force, though, I think it’s safe to say that SleazyWorld Go made all the right moves and became someone that the music business couldn’t overlook. I’m sure early features and remixes with emcees like Offset, Lil Baby, and others along with cosigns from the aforementioned artists as well as Jack Harlow helped, …

Manny Wave – UFO

Ever since Manny Wave released “Busy” in 2018, the Nepali-American rapper has built a steady buzz and amassed hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. In a short period, he has opened up for artists such as Lil Uzi Vert, Rich the Kid, Famous Dex, and Lil Skies. His latest EP titled UFO is just the beginning of what the rising talent has to offer. When I listen to his previous music and reflect on the project he recently released, I notice how his sound has improved over the years. His melodic voice is smoother and his flow is more developed. UFO consists of six tracks featuring Lxd, Caskey, Jay TuWize, and Ojefe. “This EP means a lot to me because this is my first ever album I did and launched from New York… I feel like a Nepali artist in America. I feel like it’s my duty to put my country on.” Later this year, you can expect more visuals for the singles on this project. 

Tarzzahn – Pu$$y Poppa

Rising artist Tarzzahn recruited producer Youngstarr Beatz to create his new single “Pu$$y Poppa”. The record was originally created in 2010 with the hope of being released at the time. However, due to Tarzzahn going to prison, the record was placed on pause. Youngstarr Beatz first received recognition for B-Hamp: Do the Ricky Bobby with 4 million views and counting on Youtube. After receiving a check for 42k, his career took off and he eventually landed on Drake’s paradise tour. The opportunity of a lifetime came when 2 Chainz Dj played “I Love Dem Strippers” and Beatz was flown out to join the music video. He went on to develop relationships with Kid Ink, Lil Boosie, Yo Gotti, Rich Homie Quan, and Lil Wayne throughout his career. But his biggest record to date is Fetty Wap’s “My Way,” which peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100, and Drake ended up hopping on the remix. 12 years later, Tarzzahn and Youngstarr Beatz reunited to remix the vocals on “Pu$$y Poppa” and revamp the production to create a new refreshing record. The duo created a new club banger that is hard to resist. Inspired by a 1980s rhythm. It is …

Do Ya Shit – [Swoosh God]

Technology in the music business has completely changed the trajectory of things in such a short amount of time, and while there are ups and downs to this shift, I think it has opened up so many more doors for artists who might not have had a chance otherwise. One of the biggest benefactors has to be social media, because these platforms have allowed artists to reach audiences all over the world, strengthening their careers even if they do everything from the comfort of their bedroom at home. The internet has also helped artists remain independent as opposed to basically having no choice but to sign to a label in order to reach wider fanbases, and New York’s very own Swoosh God is a textbook example of this. He signed to Playboi Carti’s Interscope Records imprint a few years back, and while I’m sure this may have helped him in some capacity, he ended up leaving the deal to become an independent musician, something that seems to have been a major plus in his growing career. Since venturing into his solo endeavors, he has collaborated with names like Lil Uzi Vert, Juicy J, Rich the Kid, Famous Dex, and Matt …

Way That I Live – [YSN Fab]

Most music listeners find out about an artist in a variety of ways, but as far as I can tell, they just tap in with new releases and run back their favorite songs without giving it a second thought. I guess this is where I differ because even before I became a writer here at Lyrical Lemonade, I loved to dive into their background and see what they were up to before making music as well as reviewing the major moments throughout their career thus far. Another statistic I find intriguing is seeing their popularity in different countries because considering I’ve never been out of the United States, I just find it hard to believe that places all the way across the world listen to music from America, even though I know that’s totally normal. When I was sent the latest YSN Fab song “Way That I Live” a few days ago, the email came with a press release with numbers and charts the Winnipeg emcee has made it onto, which turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the up and coming artist’s bio. Alongside staggering numbers like 305,000 monthly Spotify listeners, over 60 million combined streams, …

TENDAYS From South Florida Is Using His Music To Inspire Self-Expression

Tendai Chafa-Govha also known as TENDAYS, is an underground artist who has created music since 2016. Hailing from South Florida, TENDAYS has created a sound that I would say is unlike any music out right now. Throughout his career, he had the opportunity to perform alongside Waka-Flocka and a show with Keke Palmer. While he is still on the up-and-coming, his first show was with worldwide recognized headlining artists with over 450 people in attendance. TENDAYS hopes to use his music to allow his fans to be exactly who they are. “Self-expression. I want somebody to be exactly who they are or what they want to be without any sort of limitations to them. There are different tracks created for different purposes. Right now I’m focusing on caring less for others and more for myself which birthed, “CHUF VENETA”. My alternative music projects stem mostly from emotions or perspectives which will be dropped in the next few months of this year, 2022,” He stated. “The title is “I’ll try again tomorrow” which is one of the biggest downfalls that I’m learning to get rid of by dropping that project. Waiting on what tomorrow may hold is a terrible mindset to …

The Daniel Price Interview: Part 1

Photo by: India Richert I think people underestimate the power of conversation. The ability to exchange ideas, thoughts and perspectives is a superpower that can often fly under the radar as something that we just do…As I get older though, I have come to the realization that some of the most impactful moments in my life, areas where I experienced the most growth, came from conversations. Whether it was someone sharing some form of wisdom or passing the time laughing about something shown on TV, conversation not only changes us, but shapes us as well. For as long as I’m writing for Lyrical Lemonade, I am going to try and place an emphasis on the importance of conversation; because without it, we are robbing ourselves from experiencing all that this life has to offer. Today, it is my pleasure to document for you all a conversation I had with one of my favorite artists. I’ve written about Daniel Price before, but never like this. The Los Angeles-based talent is coming off of a successful rollout for his most recent EP that culminated in a marvelous live performance on the historic, Love Street (attached below). In this first of its kind …

Southside Interview: Putting the Craft First & Watching Success Come After

“I learned one thing from Kanye that I will always think of going forward. He told me to always make sure I focus on the music, and the money will come afterward. If I put all of my focus on the music, the music will sound better and I won’t have to worry about the money later on because it’s gonna come from the great music I’ve been making.” -Southside As more time passes, people are beginning to realize just how much impact producers have and recognize the overall importance that they play in the overall creation of a song. One thing we have been seeing a lot over the past couple of years is producers getting listed as main artists on songs now, rather than their name being in the backend on the credits. Producers are letting their presence be known, and rightfully so, it’s about time. That being said, when speaking about the producer pioneers and the people who really helped shape and shift the culture, it’s very difficult to speak on that without mentioning 808 Mafia, and Southside. Being the founder of 808 Mafia alongside TM88, Southside is responsible for hundreds of songs that we all know …

Rolling Loud Miami 2022 Was A Memorable Moment

If you weren’t at Rolling Loud Miami this past weekend, you missed out on a stellar festival. If you’re not familiar, Rolling Loud is the largest hip-hop festival in the world. Annually, they put together a lineup of the biggest and most influential acts in the genre. While the festival began in Miami, over the years, Rolling Loud has expanded across the country and beyond.  This year’s festival headliners were Kid Cudi, Future, and Kendrick Lamar. Friday was a very interesting night, as Kid Cudi, who was a last-minute replacement for YE, stormed off after crowd members repeatedly threw things onto the stage. Even though YE dropped out of Rolling Loud, he made a surprise performance during Lil Durk’s performance. The crowd went absolutely nuts when he took the stage. Friday also included amazing performances from Playboi Carti, Lil Yatchy, SSGKobe, Homixide Gang, Destroy Lonely, Fivio Foreign, and more. One of my favorite parts of the night was stopping by an exclusive VIP lounge area featuring the D’USSE ambassador and Houston’s rap legend Bun B. His D’USSE Watermelon Cooler was the highlight of my night. The drink was extremely refreshing. Especially when it was paired with Bun B’s Trill Burgers. …
