Risk Taker – [Fat Nick]

I’ve been a massive supporter of underground musicians for the better part of a decade, at this point, and one of my favorite artists from the jump has always been Fat Nick. He just has this nonchalant enthusiasm behind him that combines with always energetic beats that are as aggressive as they are bass-forward, and every song he drops seems to be a hit. Even though it seems like he has taken a bit of time off, at least away from the spotlight, Nick is back and better than ever with his latest song “Risk Taker” produced by FLEXATELLI and REMY, as well as a video directed by Julian Yuri Rodriguez. When it comes to Fat Nick videos, he’s always bringing quite the show with various characters, plots, and other interesting inclusions, and this one is absolutely no different whatsoever. As it opens, a few B-roll shots are taken, the first and most interesting one being with him standing in front of a lavish fountain with a couple of lovely ladies as he holds a Gucci backpack that is the home to a baby kangaroo, showing off some of the exotic ways of life he lives. Later on, he takes …

Premiere: chamber johan + Phases (video)-[Johan Lenox]

When you use the phrase generational talent, I believe the name Johan Lenox needs to be in any conversation that you might be having. The well established and well known artist is truly one of the most talented individuals in the music industry right now, and it’s about time that we took time to celebrate all of the genius that he possesses. I’ve witness this man take a song from 0-100 just by adding simple string elements to it and it’s the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed ever. I’m so hype to be bringing this legend onto our page today and if you’re reading this, you should be too! For a majority of his life, Johan has been fixated on classical music. That is until he heard “My Dark Twisted Fantasy” for the first time at a house party while on Acid. It was at this moment when Johan’s interests and taste began to change although he’s managed to stick close to his classical roots. From then, the musician began dabbling with the possibility of crossing classical music with other genres. The Massachusetts native then was off to the races as he began the composer of Yeethoven in …

Set – [KlayD]

South Memphis rapper KlayD is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut today as he flips Bobby Womack’s classic “Across 110th Street” for a grimy and turnt-up new visual for his track “Set” where he floats over the warped-vocal sample driven instrumental to talk his streetwise shit through his effortless delivery. Klay was first noticed outside of Memphis by many this week as people challenged Jacksonville rapper Ksoo23’s assertion that he came up with the phrase “No Hospital Gang” when Klay first used it almost a year ago on a track titled the same. Klay has been on a roll since, dropping videos like “Fact” and “Splash Bros” and yesterday coming across Instagram with one of the hardest snippets I have heard in months from Memphis and the video featured Klay shot in the face, stitched up, just a day after eating the bullet and recovering. KlayD is a demon and cut from a very different cloth and I hope he is able to give us more and more music, developing his unique sound and voice along the way. The Walker Homes native is looking like one of the next heir-apparents to steal the support of Memphis which might be much more …

STOP IT! – [EGOVERT]

If you’re familiar with EGOVERT and have been following along on social media, you know that we’re preparing for something truly special with EGODEATH. While talking to him, he has hinted at some amazing upcoming events and releases that are going to be unfolding sooner than later, and I couldn’t be more excited about what’s to come for him moving forward. One of these releases happens to be his song entitled “STOP IT!” produced by Mathias Tyner as well as a 6ood Vibez and EGOVERT-directed music video to accompany it. While the song is an all-out hit, that should come as no surprise whatsoever, so I wanted to focus mainly on the music video considering you’re going to hear the banger as you watch. Opening up with a caption that says somewhere out West, a clearly intoxicated cowboy heads into a bathroom to relieve himself, eventually looking in the mirror at himself while playing around with his pistol, joking around as if he’s in the middle of a gunfight with his reflection. After putting the gun down, EGO makes his way in, finding the gun and taking it for himself just in case it comes in handy. After a short …

Sofaygo, The Boy Who Believed

When Andre Dontrel Burt decided to release the three-track EP, We Are Aliens, as SoFaygo, a new pseudonym to replace his former rap name, Trvllinese, the reception wasn’t exactly favorable. “I was getting backlash when I made that transition in 2018,” the 19-year-old rapper remembered, “People was not fucking with it. They liked Trvllinese better. I told them, bro, watch, y’all gonna see.” You make it seem like you knew what was going to happen? “I did,” he replied, “I always felt like I was going to be great, bro.”  Self-assurance doesn’t come in short supply for the Georgia-born teen. His need for a superstar’s resolve dates back to Junior year at Harrison High School. “I started caring less about people’s opinions in 11th grade,” SoFaygo recalled, “That’s when I started wearing different kinds of clothes, dyeing my hair in all different kinds of colors, just adapting to what Atlanta was on at the time.” “But niggas used to try me, bruh,” he asserted. “I don’t know why, maybe because I was different, but they would call me and my music weird.” With a light chuckle, the confident rookie added, “I was having none of that, bruh. I was always …

Get Refreshed: The Unreal World of zootzie, The Real World of glaive, and raegun Responds With Ease

“Get Refreshed” is a weekly column by Billy Bugara covering all things digital in the music world. Refresh yourself here.  Cover by Nick D’Apolito Preface: In Memory of Lucas Foster This column is not the place for mourning, but it certainly is the place for memorializing. So much has been said about the impact of Lucas Foster – a beyond-exceptional writer who suddenly passed away this weekend – by so many others far closer to him; as a longtime admirer of his work, craft, and overall presence in the grander music blogging space, however, I feel as though I have a necessity to extend my greatest gratitude for what he was able to do during his short, yet remarkably resounding life as an equal-parts human being and master of their craft.  Be it subconsciously or direct as can be, reading the work of Lucas whenever I could inspired many of the undertakings I went through in my much more active blogging days. He was the ever-true root that others, and even he himself, grew out of as this online blogging landscape blossomed more and more over time. By extension of this notion, it would be difficult to dispute that anyone …

Premiere: Dimes (Official Music Video)-[Lyan Paris]

As always, our neighbors up north continue to produce exceptional talent and the artists that are making an appearance on our page today just so happen to fall in line within that category. 19 year best friends Ryan and Luke hail from a small town in Ontario but are undeniably on their way to the big time. The duo stumbled on rap in High School and from then on, their fateful partnership was formed into what is Lyan Paris. Today, the infectious duo is just getting started as they turned to TikTok to cultivate a strong fan base. After posting freestyle videos, the boys quickly garnered 300,000k followers on the app as well as 10 million likes, which is just a testament to their captivating energy. Today, the duo is making their lyrical lemonade for the release of the video for their song, “Dimes”. From the moment I heard this track, I knew that it was an instant hit. There are layers of nostalgia that are present while the uptempo production brings this to a place that every one will love. Throughout the verses, the two rappers do a great job of weaving clever rhymes and one liners to keep …

House Party – [DCG Shun] x [DCG Bsavv]

DCG Shun and DCG Bsavv are two of the most talented new artists coming out of Chicago at the moment, but we here at Lyrical Lemonade have been big advocates for them for over a year now. Way back last summer, we brought them by the LL headquarters here in Chicago for an interview + just to chop it up & learn more about them. Since that day, we have had the utmost love + respect for these two, and I believe that they would say the same. Today, we just released our brand new music video for “House Party” by the DCG Brothers, and it’s definitely going to be one to remember when you look back at our catalog years from now. The story behind the day of this video shoot was an interesting one because originally we were supposed to shoot this at a frat house on the USC campus. We went to the frat house the day before to scout and everything was smooth, but when we showed up the day of, it fell through and we had to find a new location on the fly. Much love to our video production team for making a great …

ATL Freestyle – [Tony Shhnow]

Tony Shhnow is a relatively new name to me somehow, yet he has worked with so many different artists that I’ve been following for years, so I’m shocked I haven’t come across his music sooner. While my brother has been raving to me about him for the past few weeks, I finally decided to do some research and found out that his name sounded familiar because of his work with Larry League, CashCache, and 10kDunkin, amongst others, and somehow, I just must’ve been too ignorant to realize the gem I was missing out on. Thankfully, I was able to reintroduce him to me with the release of the brand-new music video for his hit song “ATL Freestyle”, and it was a visual I simply couldn’t pass up. Teaming up with Jelani Miller to shoot this miniature movie, he was able to bring one of his best songs off of last year’s project Black Billionaire Club to life, and the results are pretty unforgettable, to say the least. As it begins, there is a small series of text in the bottom left-hand corner that resembles what old MTV-inspired music videos used to introduce an artist and their song, and the nostalgic …

Baby Chain – [Baby Smoove]

Baby Smoove and the rest of the Michigan rap scene are blowing up, and that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone anymore. While I’ve been a fan of his for the better part of a year, it seems like the majority of the public is just starting to catch on, so regardless, I’m happy he’s finally getting the recognition he deserves. Just the other day, Smoove surprised fans yet again with another unbelievable track called “Baby Chain”, and this one got me really excited, to say the least. Produced by Rocaine, we’re introduced to a very simplistic, percussion-forward instrumental with out-of-the-box sounds like wood blocks and a guiro that combine for a minimal yet beyond catchy beat. Considering its laid-back disposition, I wasn’t exactly sure how Smoove would fair considering he himself is typically very nonchalant, and while he doesn’t necessarily switch up his own personality just to fit in on this beat, he actually glides along right over the beat impeccably well. Although his enthusiasm never raises much more than usual, he constantly assaults the production with peppered lyrics and constant wordplays that are as creative as they are captivating, per usual. Alongside the brand-new song comes a …
