Too Easy (Remix) – [Gunna] ft. [Future] & [Roddy Ricch]

2021 was an awesome year for music, and even if other facets of life were difficult, the songs and albums we were blessed with helped to ease some of this stress. Although we’re only a week into the new year, it seems like things are getting off to a hot start thanks to some of the biggest artists in the music business releasing amazing songs and even better cohesive albums. Today, The Weeknd obviously dropped his album which is going to be a chart-topper without a doubt, but Gunna also came to play by releasing his undeniably amazing album DS4EVER, a project that gives us 19 songs spanning just about 55 minutes long with features from talents like Young Thug, Kodak Black, Lil Baby, G Herbo, and many more. I definitely still need to take some time to dive into the deep end with regards to this album, but I figured the perfect place to start would be his brand-new visual for the remix of his song “Too Easy” with a great new verse courtesy of Roddy Ricch. The original track has been in my rotation pretty much daily since it was released, but this remix is awesome and the …

Project Princess London Hill Is Bringing The Bars back to NYC

Rising out of Bronx New York, project princess London Hill’s versatile sound is unlike anyone you ever heard before. Ms.30 minutes is known for her ability to get in the booth and deliver power punchlines over and over again. Her gritty yet raw and aggressive sound is what separates her from her peers. Her hard work and dedication have not gone unnoticed. Earlier this year she received recognition from Hip-hop royalty Cardi B. This year, Hill has proven that she is here to stay by remaining consistent with her singles. Her latest and favorite track to date “Flexer” expresses her identity and accepting the woman she is becoming today. Her single “Pressure” featuring Sosa Geek did numbers on Youtube earlier this year with over 300k views which is no surprise since she knocked out her hook in only ten minutes. As the year is winding down, Hill looks forward to creating a fashion line and bubbling up more noise around her singles before she releases her debut project. She hopes to have the opportunity to connect with Shenseea, Nicki Minaj, and many more in the future. In our interview, Hill revealed that she has a track coming soon with Erica …

Synecdoche [Tullis] x [Roddy]

“I know I’m not the special type, never really worth the hype, never worth the time at all, hard for me to sleep at night…” – Tullis Phoenix, Arizona based artist Tullis returns to Lyrical Lemonade with “Synecdoche,” which is the smooth opener off his new four-track EP The Space Between. The entire project was produced by Roddy, which contains a sonically appealing palette for a multi-genre listening experience. I chose the intro as the standout record because it brilliantly sets the tone for the next three songs. Moreover, Tullis pours the entirety of his emotions on the musical canvas; namely indecisive meditations on romance. For example, the contradictory words “when it’s all said and done I don’t need you” don’t align with “I can’t get your attention,” which serves as a fascinating exploration into the psyche of the burdened artist. Stylistically Tullis begins and ends with his softest singing voice with a tied rap verse in the middle. The rap portion is the most expressive whereas the singing is more meditative, as Tullis initially ponders before confessing a number of hard truths about himself. Moreover, the ambient, somewhat melancholy instrumental brings Tullis center stage as the listener is solely …

LEMME FIND OUT – [Bino Rideaux] x [Roddy Ricch]

LA based artist Bino Rideaux linked up with Roddy Ricch for a fresh new banger titled “LEMME FIND OUT.” The song follows his previous “No Makeup” single release with King Combs, as Rideaux continues to consistently deliver with each drop. Each single builds more and more momentum for Bino’s upcoming 100 Roses project, which drops on November 5th of this year. With a smooth, borderline R&B instrumental, the contrasted bass and 808s provide flare as Bino and Roddy float on their verses. The amorous lyrics coupled with the rapid pace gives the record romantic appeal and club certified status all in one. With multiple styles to choose from, Bino Rideaux once more excels with his hit formula, and his unique artistry enables him to work with just about any respected rapper in the game such the superstar artist Roddy Ricch. Have a listen below!

DON’T PLAY – [Obai]

“I made this song with cashmoneyap and fellow Cash Gang member Daniel Moras! Knowing that I used to freestyle on cashmoneyap type beats like 5 years ago over Xbox with friends I can easily say that it was such a cool experience for me! Genuinely such a blessing. Me and him made two songs the night we linked up to record at his studio. DONT PLAY was the second song to come out of that session! Everything kind of just fell into place really quick. It was one of those things that felt really natural and I think that the best music always comes out like that. I had my best friend Harding and manager Ruben with me at the time of recording, so I immediately started thinking about the bond that we have! When we’re together I think that nothing could make us fold or break. Can’t be fucked with type shit. I hope this song makes you feel the same way it makes me! “ – Obai Phoenix, Arizona native Obai returns to Lyrical Lemonade with his most impressive offering yet titled “DON’T PLAY.” Remarkably just sixteen years of age, the artist is crafting bangers equally impressive as …

Matinee – [Tullis] x [Roddy] x [Ralston]

Phoenix, Arizona’s emerging star Tullis delivers yet again with a visual for his latest single “Matinee.” Produced by Ralston and his manager Roddy, the track pursues a contemplative route detailing Tullis’s virtue and accompanying flaws. Graced by a serene piano composition, there is a subtle-sound dichotomy to illustrate the ‘grass before the green.’ The hip-hop tones of the record are balanced with motifs, which are even more evocative and noticeable throughout the music video. According to the Oxford dictionary, a matinee is defined as “A performance in a theater or a showing of a movie that takes place in the daytime.” In this particular context, the performance is shown through a genuine lens of Tullis’s ‘exceptional’ life, which is painted over the low moments that naturally occur. Unafraid of handing out tickets, every new addition to his discography adds another element to the unfinished picture. Peep the fantastic visual shot by Tori; edited by Casper Masi and Matt Fuller below!

4k The Opps – [Richer Than Roddy]

With music writing so much of the discovery aspect involves judging books by their cover and almost invariably I have discovered that artists with particularly memorable names have the tendency to be much better than an artist with a lackluster or basic title, and this is the case with Memphis’s Richer Than Roddy whose brash moniker simultaneously exudes confidence and humor and certainly will not be soon forgotten by anyone who checks out his video for “4k The Opps” which is gaining ground in his hometown that is having an uncharicteristically hot year for a town that’s rap scene has been strong since the early-90s. Behind the new stars like Pooh Shiesty, Big Scarr, Lil Migo, and Big 30 there are even more upcoming talents that are poised to help lead Memphis into this new decade and continue to build on all of the success of the generation prior. Richer Than Roddy is one of those artists that after the first bar just leaves you like “Oh wow so what part of Memphis is he from?” without being given any context beforehand whatsoever. He walks all over the bouncy and danceable instrumental that was perfect for him to turn up …

Lemonade (Remix) – [Internet Money] feat. [Don Toliver] & [Roddy Ricch]

By now, we have all been familiarized with the earth-shattering single “Lemonade” provided by the Internet Money collective. The original video shot by Lyrical Lemonade’s own Cole Bennett has already racked up over 22 million views on Youtube, and is going crazy on all U.S. and International charts. As the crept up on us, “Lemonade” is easily a top contender for Song of the Summer as well, despite us not being able to feel this songs energy out in the clubs and functions. That being said, it was already destined for success in the long run. Don Toliver was having nothing short of an amazing run this year, Nav received amazing praise from all over, and Gunna has been consistently over achieving as Young Thug’s protégée. The cohesiveness that exists amongst Don Toliver, Nav & Gunna on this record was like no other, and it truly shows with just how well this song has been performing thus far. Taz Taylor, Nick Mira and the Internet Money team have been going crazy ever since the release of their album B4 the Storm in late August, so it was no surprise that they would come back adding more gasoline to the fire. As if …

Gifted – [Cordae] x [Roddy Ricch]

From the very first time I heard YBN Cordae’s music, I knew that he was going to be a special talent, and it seems like everyone agrees with that statement considering almost everyone in the industry will bring up his name when you ask them what new artists are they a fan of. Another young artist that has been getting similar reception to that is none other than Roddy Ricch, so when you see that these two creatives connected on a track, it’s enough to stop whatever you’re doing and give it your utmost attention. What’s the only thing that could make a collaboration like this better though, how about a music video directed by Lyrical Lemonade’s found, Cole Bennett? That is just the case on this release as Cordae, Roddy Ricch & Cole joined forces for a brand new visual for “Gifted”. Cordae has made plenty of music up until this point that I have thoroughly enjoyed, but this new song here is hands down the best track that I’ve heard from him yet. The way that Cordae + Roddy Ricch complimented each other on this track was sensational to say the minimum, they displayed great chemistry as they bounced …

A Conversation w/ J.I the Prince of NY: Returning to Music After Quitting, Current Brooklyn Scene, “Painless 2” w/ Lil Durk & Nav and more.

“I really view myself higher than a prince to be honest. Sometimes I view myself as a king or a God when it comes to my music. I just know that I have more work to do to really get to that point and work harder towards the goals that I have.” -J.I the Prince of N.Y It’s safe to say that if you are a fan of hip hop, or even music in general, that you may have had those childhood dreams of becoming a superstar one day. You may be in your room rehearsing rap songs, or having daydreams of you performing on stage in front of a sea of fans reciting every lyric you spit. For some of us, those thoughts may not make it past that, but for others, that dream had the potential to turn into a reality. Being a young teen and dreaming of being famous and on TV is something that not many rappers can say that they have had the experience of living through. For the 18 year old Brooklyn-native J.I the Prince of N.Y, he turned that dream into a reality when he first appeared on Jermaine Durpi’s The Rap Game at …
