Nights Like This – [Kehlani] x [Ty Dolla $ign]

A couple of hours ago Kehlani blessed her massive fan base with a brand new offering titled “Nights Like This” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. 2019 is looking to be a huge year for Kehlani because many of us are expecting her to release her first album since her debut project SweetSexySavage that dropped back in 2017, and this new single is a promising start for the fans! I don’t think it’s possible for Kehlani to make a bad record, she’s constantly whipping up solid jams one after another and this new joint is certainly no disappointment! Check out her brand new single below via Soundcloud and if you like it be sure to share it with a friend.

TOP 50 CHICAGO PROJECTS OF 2018

While Chicago has been known as a reputable city in hip-hop for numerous years now, this revered position has not arrived without the constant innovation and hard work of the artists that so faithfully represent the prowess of their home city. It is these artists that we have to credit for this respected reputation, and we here at Lyrical Lemonade try to honor this in every way possible by constantly bringing new Chicago acts into our headlines here on our website. That said, 2018 has been yet another fantastic year for Chicago music, so we went ahead and compiled a list of our “Top 50 Chicago Projects” of the year. This now marks the third year that we have been putting out this list, and we believe that it’s safe to say this year’s list might just be the most solid one from top to bottom that we’ve seen yet. Thank you to our terrific writing staff for all of the hard work they have put in this year, I will be linking their socials below so be sure to contact them about getting featured on the website in the future.

NOTHIN LIKE U / CHANCES – [KAYTRANADA]

One of the most distinguishable producers today, KAYTRANADA, has released a five-track EP titled NOTHIN LIKE U / CHANCES, featuring guest verses from Ty Dolla $ign and Shay Lia. The new EP comes as a surprise to many KAYTRANADA fans who were reveling in his remixes of A Tribe Called Quest, Sade, and Kelela in recent months. Thankfully, KAYTRA was not going to let 2018 close without releasing any original music and for that we are thankful. His new EP offers two vocal tracks and the three instrumental cuts that seamlessly blend into one another, marking the 18-minute EP as an easy listen for fans old and new alike. Let us hope that this new EP is an appetizer leading to a larger entree in the form of a full-length album from the skilled producer, and as we wait, listen to KAYTRANADA’s new EP, NOTHIN LIKE U / CHANCES below and tell us what you think in the comment section!

Climate – [Johnny Yukon]

Los Angeles based rapper and crooner Johnny Yukon is still in a giving mood from the holidays. Yukon drops off his second loosie of the month today with a new single entitled “Climate.” After popping up on my radar in 2017 with songs such as “Laptop” and “Snooze”, I was left wanting to hear more from Johnny. The Pennsylvania born emcee was busy going back and forth between penning songs for other artists and working on his own album, garnering songwriting credits including the likes of Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Rae Sremmurd, Ty Dolla $ign, Camila Cabello and more. Early this May we finally got his album Installation I, which lead to his single “Lies” gaining some serious traction. With tracks like “Climate”, it’s easy to see how talented of a writer Johnny Yukon is, pointing to his ability to piece together great songs. With these last couple of drops, he’s gearing up to make some huge statements in 2019. As we await new music, in the meantime, stream his new single “Climate” below.

Hot Wings Are A Girl’s Best Friend – [2 Chainz]

Tity Boi himself has followed through on his promise of new music which he made on Twitter Thursday morning. 2 Chainz returned with a two-pack of singles titled, Hot Wings Are A Girl’s Best Friend featuring a single feature from Ty Dolla $ign. This is the first offering we receive from the College Park rapper since his collaborative single, “Bigger Than You,” with Drake and Quavo released back in July. The two-pack delivers on both ends of  2 Chainz artistic ability; “Hot Wings” is trap heavy, filled with braggadocios bars and an infectious hook, “Girl’s Best Friend” finds Chainz adding his flavor to a low-tempo track with an angelic Ty Dolla feature. The two-pack is set to hold us over until 2 Chainz releases his fifth, highly anticipated album, Rap Or Go To The League. Listen to the two new songs below and tell us what you think in the comment section!

FM! – [Vince Staples]

It feels like it’s been forever since Vince Staples’ ‘Big Fish Theory’ dropped, even though it came out just last year. Don’t fret, though—the long beach native has been busy working on his next official album, and in the midst of that process, he’s cooked up an entirely separate project which comes to us today. Vince teased ‘FM!’ earlier this week on Instagram, touting it as a project dedicated to, well, himself: “He said he needed something that represented him and where he comes from so here it is.” All jokes aside, it becomes clear what Vince is referring to as soon as you hit play on ‘FM’. Delivering flows that echo his West Coast predecessors over beats that conjure up the heat of his home climate, he sounds undoubtedly in his bag. Vince makes sure to pack as much as he can in the 22-minute runtime, keeping things interesting with moments of volatility contrasted with his untouched levels of cool. He doesn’t go it alone, either, recruiting a circle of friends and collaborators including Kehlani, Ty Dolla $ign, Earl Sweatshirt, and E-40. Peep ‘FM!’ and also check out the video for “FUN!” below:

2700 EP – [JAG]

If you recall a few weeks ago JAG made his LL debut with his track “That’s Mine” and today he is back with his brand new project titled “2700z”. There is a total of twelve tracks on this project and truthfully I didn’t know what to expect coming into this one considering I haven’t heard a tape from him before, but I came out of it glad that I gave it a couple spins. JAG’s performance on each and every track speaks for itself, but man this tape had some star studded features including Cozz & Reason, Ty Dolla $ign, Sy Ari Da Kid, Trey Songz, Problem, Garren, Gizzle, Romell, Fasodd, Ye Ali and lastly Mir Fontae. Stream this brand new project below and if you like it be sure to keep up with JAG by giving him a follow on Spotify! Social Media:

Reese LaFlare – [Reese LaFlare]

From the luxurious “Drip Like That” to the fashion-inspired “No Stylist” and everything in between, Reese LaFlare has showed us time and time again why he has always been ahead of the curve in rap. All of these influential moments have formed quite an important role for the ATL native, and today, he rolls his artistry into one, everlasting collection of music that shows all of this off: a stellar, self-aware debut album entitled Reese LaFlare. 14 tracks in length, this project has been years in the making, so it’s special to see the growth that LaFlare undergoes throughout its duration. It feels as though each track is a small slice of his personality, and once the final moments conclude, listeners have been shown the entirety of who Reese LaFlare is and what made him the person he is today. Not to mention it even includes some magnificent features from Yung Bans, Gunna, Young Thug, Pusha T, Smokepurpp, Ty Dolla $ign, and Vory. Quite frankly, the music speaks for itself in this case, so I’ll leave you to check out the new album at the link provided below!

Harlan & Alondra – [Buddy]

Compton has another star on its hands and he goes by the name Buddy. This rising talent has been on my radar for a few years now, and today, he’s here to take the spotlight and show the world what he’s capable of with an incredibly honest new album, Harlan & Alondra. At the very heart of its inception, this album is a family affair — a moment for Buddy to brings his full personality to the light and tell us about the live he has lived so far, all the while touching bases on the issues in today’s world and how they affect his growth as a person. Both aspects of the project are illustrated with sun-soaked instrumentals and stellar feature spots from Guapdad 4000, A$AP Ferg, Ty Dolla $ign, Snoop Dogg, and Khalid, all of which shine on their respective spots. With this, the unwavering energy that Buddy blesses us with on this album is second to none. He takes his entire world and fits it into just under 40 minutes of timeless music without compromising the story in any way, and for that, this needs to be on the top of your must-listen list. Check out Harlan & Alondra …
