Dirty Money Bags – [DEEGAN]

DEEGAN Reeves is a 23 year old singer/songwriter from Norwalk, CT who has been making some serious waves lately. The La based artist has been dropping music 2018 and has a pretty impressive discography under his name. Just a couple of weeks back, DEEGAN dropped a track called “Hello” that has received a lot of great buzz after landing a much deserved editorial spot on Spotify. Today, the rising artist is back with a brand new offering entitled “Dirty Money Bags” and its definitely worth a listen. DEEGAN practically does everything on his own when it comes to making music, but for this one he paired up with Rhode Island producer, Tylur Ocean to create a really impressive piece for us today. It’s really hard to predict who is going to be the next big thing, but I believe DEEGAN is a part of a great batch of artists who are going to be household names in many places. I’ve attached the Spotify link down below for “Dirty Money Bags”. Give it a listen and let us know what you think!

PARTYMOBILE – [PARTYNEXTDOOR]

It has been almost four years since the last full-length release from the ever-so-talented Canadian songster, PARTYNEXTDOOR. Although it’s been so long, he never seemed to fade from still getting his recognition and his credit fro his contributions to the game. Since his P3 album debuted in 2016, he released two EPs, titled Colours 2 and Seven Days. On top of that, he has obtained quite a few spectacular writing credits with artists such as Post Malone, Beyonce and Jay-Z, and his label mate and frequent collaborator, Drake. His previous releases is what drew a majority of his fan base in, but the light that shun upon him after word got out that he wrote the song “Work” for Rihanna was like no other. People finally began to realize that his pen and his ear for overall song creation was one to respect. After releasing the two lead singles back in November of last year, fans became eager for more music and knew that an album was in the works. After being pushed back twice, the alleged Club Atlantis project that fans were waiting on, would become the album that we are finally able to soak in, PARTYMOBILE. As cliche as the saying “you cant rush greatness” sounds, …

THEBOOFMOBILE – [JAHMED]

One of the most exciting rap artist to emerge in the last year, in my opinion at least, is JAHMED. The newly emerged Human Re Sources signee is no stranger to Lyrical Lemonade but is making his latest appearance on our site for his eight-track debut, THEBOOFMOBILE. Chock-full of agile lyricism, hard-hitting production and a dynamic vocal ability that catapults his sound far beyond the average rapper, JAHMED’s debut is an impressive introduction into an artist who is clearly going to be the focus of our attention for a long time. Opened by a short preview, titled “Prelude,” the project begins with the previously covered “JEEP,” as its stirring bravado and bulletproof attitude sets a reoccurring theme of the project. Transitioning into the grit of “REDLIGHT” and the bass-rattling nature of “MAZDA,” JAHMED oozes the culmination of his upbringing as he combines the southern trap style of his Texas roots while simultaneously implementing the sounds of his West Coast identity. This sonic surge in sound, delivery and flow continues shines on the project’s later tracks, “TWOTEN” and “LIFTMEUP.” Both records exude unwavering confidence and a quotable braggadocios attitude that is irresistibly infectious. To simply say JAHMED’s new project is concise would …

Private Dancer – [Tank God] x [Kai Ca$h]

Tank God, a Manhattan-born and largely successful producer, teams up with the wildly talented Brooklyn native Kai Ca$h in bringing their latest wavy piece, “Private Dancer.” The melodic ability of Kai Ca$h paired with the brilliant keys laid down by Tank God combine for a fluid, head-swaying track that left me mesmerized for its 2:45 entirety. The versatility of both artists, in this case, allows their talents to truly shine, as Kai Ca$h continues to release heat in multiple genres of music and particularly in the East-coast drill scene, and Tank God continues to make masterpieces as a member of Sony/ATV music. The visual, directed by Whipalo, is a polished project with abstract, ambient scenes that match the energy the artists were attempting to portray with the track. Psychadelic, fast-paced visuals with mind-bending effects and transitions ride the wave of the song throughout its entirety. “- can’t play my game, ain’t got no coach, you think you gon’ take my wave, you smokin’ dope.” The two are clearly on a different wavelength with this gem of a track, accompanied by the eye-pleasing visual that was just released Monday. Watch Private Dancer (feat. Kai Ca$h) below!

Make Me Feel – [Fya Man]

Chicago has certainly been a hotbed for talent over the past decade or so, and last night Chicago leader Chance The Rapper put me (and many others) onto a new artist out of the city via a tweet, and he goes by Fya Man. Ironically enough, Fya man appeared on our website some years ago once or twice due to some features he was apart of, but this new music video for “Make Me Feel” featuring DJ Nate, is his first solo appearance here on our website. This song is only just above a minute in length, but everything about it is severely addicting from the soothing production to the touching lyrics that he spit about his significant other. This isn’t anything that you want to miss out on, so take a few minutes out of your Monday + run this video back a couple of times! shot by @newwavebrothers @ninopowerspr

Airbnb – [Bran Movay]

In a world that promotes a culture of urgency, of speed, of “right now”, the Los Angeles based artist Bran Movay reminds us that it’s important to slow down and cherish the present in his latest song and music video release, “Airbnb”. Wielding the talents of the multifaceted artist, producer, and DJ Ronnie Quest, this luscious song sets the tone for a weekend getaway featuring your crew and your boo. Bran Movay has been making his mark in music since his debut EP Flower Talk hit airwaves back in 2017. The leading single from the EP was featured on Reprezent 107.3 radio in London, giving the UK just a taste of what the Dallas native has had cooking up. Following the release of the EP, Movay has been releasing a plethora of singles, all of which showcase his experimental blend of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Neo-Soul. His most popular track “Mama” featuring Black Freckles has amassed over 550,000 streams on Spotify and for good reason. In everything the young artist and producer does, he includes an ingrained sense of genuity and zeal that allows his sound to serve as a beacon for fresh new artists to follow. “Airbnb” garnishes an ataractic …

Around – [Gliiico]

Musical talent can often be within somebody’s DNA. We’ve seen countless examples of musical families that have produced siblings that all end up finding stardom either together or in their own right. Today we have a band made up of the brothers De Torres, or as they’re known now Gliiico. Kio, Kai, and Nico are three brothers born and raised in Vancouver BC but recently made the move to Tokyo. Lead singer Kai had an opportunity to pursue modeling and change up everything he knew living in Canada. Shortly after his brothers joined him and they have spent time working on music as a band. The end product is nothing short of fantastic, with them debuting Gliiico to the world with their debut single titled “Around”. Their first song has come at a perfect time as it is a chill laid back track that is fitting for days spent relaxing in self-isolation. This track was inspired by emotions that he had been battling since moving to Japan and how much hold they had over his life, the writing of this song helped bring him closure and ready to start the next chapter of his life across the world. The visuals …

Saint – [BFRESH]

Coming out of New Orleans, BFRESH presents a wave of energy that can’t be muted. By nature, he’s loud, he’s effortlessly compelling, and best of all, once you put him in front of a microphone, his charm clearly translates, making for an artist just as entertaining as he is skilled. In recent months, we’ve covered two BFRESH releases, “Big Bank” and “D.I.E“. Today, jumping out of the gate with yet another must-watch, the man himself is back, here to present an enthralling new release entitled “Saint.” With the song released on Friday and the accompanying visuals released on Monday, BFRESH is clearly putting the pressure on with “Saint,” and for good reason. From the song’s in-your-face sense of melody to the booming production and hilarious background vocals, “Saint” is undeniable. Add BFRESH’s rambunctious character to the equation, and you have something clearly special, all the way down to the song’s prideful opening line, “I’m from New Orleans, I ball like a Saint.” And keep your ears peeled throughout for other quotable one-liners, because BFRESH is full of them. That said, New Orleans own is more than ready to represent his city on the highest stage possible, and “Saint” makes sure …

TEMPO – [Smino]

Smino is one of the most slept on artists in the game. He gets constant praise and recognition from his always growing fanbase left and right and artists are taking note of his clever bars that never fail to impress, but he has yet to take his talents to more major audiences than some artists do which doesn’t seem to affect him in the slightest. His voice is pretty much smoother than anyone else you could imagine, he’s the most dynamic voice on any track he spits on, and he has a certain swagger that’s just natural and can’t be taught. Whether it’s his rapid-fire cadences that can switch at the drop of a dime, world play that would take others years to come up with, or his connections with some of the brightest talents in the industry, he really has it all. His ability to outmatch pretty much any opponent on any given song is just unfair in a sense, and he’s not slowing down any time soon. Most recently, Smino took to Twitter to announce that he remembered his password for SoundCloud, promptly delivering a track on the platform called “TEMPO”. The beat is almost reminiscent of R&B …

PTSD: G Herbo’s Therapy Session In The Form of Soundwaves

Time and time again, when we begin to speak about mental health in the music industry, there are seldom who speak about it very openly. The ones that have become advocates for speaking of mental health are often so legends in the rap game or those who are a bit older than the current age group who may be suffering from such mental illnesses. So much so, the messages transmitted sometimes gets lost in the delivery, as the younger generation may not necessarily look up to these individuals. For someone to be as young as G Herbo is, speaking about mental illness is something that is very much needed in times like this. We are beginning to lose more and more of our peers and legends every single year–to the point to where it seems like a never ending cycle of sadness. Some may even argue that we can grow to become desensitized to such tragedies. In the album PTSD by G Herbo, he finally opens up more about his thoughts and life events that took place that lead to him having PTSD, in which he says he “got diagnosed for” in his recent interview with The Breakfast Club. “The significance …
