LOOK – [Supa Bwe] Ft. [Qari]

Supa Bwe is only a few days removed from his sensational headliner in Chicago with his homies Qari & Mulatto (& Duffle Bag Buru + Reeseynem), but today the Chicago legend is finding himself back on our platform with the release of his brand new music video for “LOOK” featuring Qari. I can’t even begin to explain just how excited that I have been for this release, any true fan of Supa/Qari knows that them reconnecting about a year ago was a miracle itself, but to see them side by side making music together again damn near brings a tear to my eye. The video director and LL’s own Cole Bennett put it best though, adding: “This one means a lot to me, they (Supa & Qari) were some of the first artists I ever worked with when I started Lyrical Lemonade, I used to be at every one of their shows in Chicago and I always used to dream that we’d do a music video together. & now it’s here!” This is an important release here for us at LL but more importantly this is a big release for the city of Chicago man, let’s be sure to support …

CLASS CLOWN – [Luke Almighty]

It’s become nearly impossible to follow Chicago’s rising hip-hop scene without encountering a beat or two from producer Luke Almighty. Over the past few years, he has proven his knack for putting on new talent and boasts a roster of big voices both from the city and all over (Supa Bwe, Yung Bans, that continues to grow. Now, Almighty calls upon that roster for his own project. With features from many of his longtime collaborators and an appearance from Chicago legend Twista, ‘Class Clown’ gives the most cohesive look at the producer’s talent yet. Almighty put his name in the spotlight last summer with the release of his debut mixtape ‘Deliver Us From Evil’, and while that project offered a deep-dive into a sound he was already known for, ‘Class Clown’ expands upon his skills. Almighty proves he’s still in his bag when balancing hard 808s influenced by Chicago drill production and ambient synths on tracks like “Believe That”; Rappers KOMLA, KILLKAIN, and SANTIAGO trade verses on this song over rolling hi-hats and an eerie melody. While honing this sound, Almighty also experiments with more melodic elements and sampling, with songs like “Brand New” offering an upbeat change of …

Ain’t Shit Changed – [Supa Bwe]

Just about five minutes ago Chicago legend and Lyrical Lemonade favorite Supa Bwe released a brand new record titled “Ain’t Shit Changed” and it’s yet another great musical offering to come from Chicago today. Supa Bwe has always been ahead of the curve sonically and a trendsetter when it comes to using creatives flows + styles, and this new joint is the latest example of just that, he dabbled & experimented with a few different sounds here and I loved every minute of it. I am sure that this is just the start of a good string of music that’s about to be dropped on us by Supa Bwe in 2019, although this is just a loosie, I know he has some real heat tucked away that I am excited for the world to hear. Not only did Supa Bwe bless us with some new music tonight but he also announced that he will be headlining Reggies Rock Club in Chicago on August 9th along side Hurt Everybody + Duffle Bag Buru! You can purchase tickets to the show here!

Rememory – [Supa Bwe] x [Chance The Rapper]

Supa Bwe and Chance The Rapper have been leading Chicago’s hip-hop community for years now, and whenever they hop on a record together it’s great for the city, today they are blessing us with with not a new song, but a brand new music video for their last collab “Rememory”. If you remember the last visual these two released was the animated cut “Fool Wit It Freestyle” a couple of years ago, and they kept the animation theme going on this visual but they stepped it up big time, in large part thanks to director Tristan Zammit. I can’t stress enough how great of a job they all did on this one, I hope to see it in some “Best Music Videos of 2019” lists toward the end of the year, but regardless check it out for yourself below!

Taylor Bennett Speaks on The American Reject, the Cover Art, TBE + more!

Taylor Bennett has been one of the biggest pieces in the puzzle that makes up Chicago’s music community. He has been rapping and creating music for damn near a decade and has become not only one of Chicago’s best rappers, but more importantly one of the brightest business minds that the city has to offer. The growth of his company Taylor Bennett Entertainment has been amazing to watch to say the least: he has built up a still small yet unbelievably talented roster with Bianca Shaw who has blossomed into one of the best talents that the city has to offer, as well as Zxxk who is one of the most talented producers & creatives in the game. When we look back ten years from now, these two will be far along in their careers under the guidance of Taylor & TBE. Next week Taylor is releasing his forthcoming album The American Reject, and when I saw him tease the cover I knew I had to bring him by the Lyrical Lemonade office to pick his brain about the project, the cover and so much more. As we gear up for the project that appears to be Taylor’s biggest and most …

Just Say Thank You – [Supa Bwe]

Ladies and gentleman, the moment that we have been waiting for is finally upon us, as Chicago superstar Supa Bwe just released his highly anticipated project titled “Just Say Thank You”. This is a huge moment for Supa Bwe is his career, he has been building up his name and sound slowly but surely for years now, and it seems as if all of that hard work is really about to paying off in a big way. The features on this project come from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Duffle Bag Buru, Rexx Life Raj and last but certainly not least, Dounia. I enjoyed every single one of the seven tracks that were provided on this tape, but if I had to pick my favorite I would have to say it’s either “Rememory” featuring Chance or “BOOM BOOM BOOM” featuring Duffle Bag Buru. Of course the shining factor of this entire project was Supa himself, he created some of the best music of his entire life and included it on this masterpiece, congratulations on the release to Supa from all of us here at Lyrical Lemonade, we are proud of you. When we look back on the year of 2019 …

Problem / Fuel – [Supa Bwe]

The evolution of Supa Bwe as an artist & as a person has been sensational to watch over the past five years, he’s a once in a lifetime talent and is one of the best to come out of Chicago in the past decade, and arguably of all time. Supa Bwe has been known for his high energy records often filled with witty & at times relatable bars, and this new joint “Problem / Fuel”, could not have started off harder: “Yeah I’m still alive that’s a problem, solve it!”. Within the first twenty seconds of the songs Supa had me at the edge of my seat, it’s such an infectious jam when you listen to it, it’s damn near impossible to not want to throw something across the room or just sing along with him word for word. This offering is tremendous and it just might be Supa’s best song of his entire career, a bold statement considering all of the bass knocking and hard hitting records he has created in the past, but I stand by it. A great amount of the success of this track comes from the astronomical instrumental that was provided by Supa himself as well …

Supa Bwe is only a couple weeks away from releasing what I am expecting to be a groundbreaking new project called Just Say Thank You, and today he blessed his rapidly growing fan base with a single from the tape titled “Time For Me” featuring Rexx Life Raj. It’s a laid back and soothing tune that truly anyone can enjoy, Supa set the tempo & direction for this song and the feature from Rexx Life Raj complimented what Supa created extremely well. This is my favorite song that I have heard today and I have a good feeling it will end up being yours too, go ahead and press play below!

Wasted Time – [Brendan Bennett] ft. [Supa Bwe]

Brendan Bennett’s hustle is impeccable. The young artist from Southwest Florida dropped his debut album ‘Pop Tracks & Love Songs’ last summer, initiating listeners to his fine-tuned blend of trap-influenced pop songs. Since then, Bennett has kept busy, dropping his track “Rich Friends” last month and following up today with another new single. “Wasted Time” finds Bennett in his songwriting and production bag. He croons out a heart struck melody over a guitar-driven, melancholy beat that sounds readymade for a movie soundtrack. He’s also called in some assistance for this one, with a feature from Chicago’s own Supa Bwe. Supa comes in at just the right time, bridging the track with his signature auto-tune drenched vocals to bring the song up an emotional notch. Peep Brendan Bennett’s “Wasted Time” below:
