Everything’s Everything – [Wiz Khalifa]

Wiz Khalifa has been super generous to his fans this week by blessing them with a handful of new records nad just today he returned with the lastest of the bunch, a smooth track called “Everything’s Everything” featuring Deji. Once I heard this spacey instrumental from Jerm I liked where this one was heading, and then when Wiz jumped on the beat with a somewhat quiet yet melodic & effective flow, leading perfectly into a killer verse from his close homie Deji. Stream this brand new joint below and if you enjoy it then visit Wiz’s Soundcloud to peep all of the rest of the music he has recently dropped.

Genesis – [Young Deji]

If you’ve read any of my writing over the past few months, it’d be no secret that I am a big fan of the music coming out of Houston, Texas. With such a deep history of producing some of the genre’s most unique talent, they always seem to be new artists popping up all time that redefine the culture in a major way. An artist that fits that description perfectly is Young Deji, the creator of The Woah. His music might not be what you expect with that on his resume, he has an insanely smooth voice that is able to create both iconic R&B and intricate wordplay. Young Deji released his sophomore project Genesis the other week, the Houston artist has truly leveled up in terms of sound. This project is the perfect evolution from his FunPlex mixtape that dropped earlier this year. From the intro track “Sar”, Deji’s soulful sound can almost be compared to Steve Lacy with a heavy 808. Wiz Khalifa has heavily cosigned Deji, appearing on four out of twelve tracks on the project. Finding talented voices like Ty$, its no surprise Wiz would tap into Deji’s massive potential. Deji also shows his ability to switch things up and spit …

Behind the Music: Highlighting the Producers of Today’s Sound

By: Lee Mcintosh When it comes to creating great music, the artists are the ones who receive most of the recognition for the creation of the song. Their name is what’s attached to the song, their flows, their likeness, and even the features that the artist may have. However, the song making process all begins with one entity… the producer/s. No matter how creative the lyrics may be, how great the artist’s cadence sounds, the beat behind it all is a huge factor behind the overall appeal of the song, and that is what moves people and captures their attention as soon as they hit play. We are in a different era of music now. Technology has advanced to a point where producers and artists don’t have to be in the studio together anymore. This can be a gift and a curse at the same time. Often so, producers may send over a beat pack to an artist and then they select the songs they want and don’t want. From there, the studio session may be recorded or put on Instagram live, and the producer may be nowhere in sight. This may create confusion as to who actually made the …

Our 50 Favorite Kid Cudi Songs

Bravery in vulnerability. Honesty in the face of pain. Effortless trend-setting. Undying authenticity. Inimitable talent. Astonishing hooks, soaring highs, and heartfelt lows. Creative ambition. The list goes on. These attributes and so many more are what makes Kid Cudi a living legend. From his stature as one of the most sonically and aesthetically influential artists alive to an entire catalog of classic albums, mixtapes, features, and chart-topping singles, there’s no denying the sheer impact and importance of the Cleveland-bred artist. His contributions not only to music, but to mental health awareness, fashion, and even acting range over a broad palette of interests and ventures, all of which bring fans back to the one and only Scott Mescudi — a multi-talented star in every right and the kind of artist and human that only comes around once in a lifetime.

Lyrical Lemonade Presents: The Shordie Shordie Q&A

As I rode in the car with my cameraman on the way to Atlanta I started to prep myself for this interview. Naturally, I like to be over prepared when I’m talking with someone so I’m able to dive into an in-depth conversation with the person. As I’m gazing off into the distance my cameraman asks me to play some Shordie Shordie to get in the mood for the interview. I play “Bitchuary” first of course. Everyone in the car’s mood immediately changes, I ended up letting Shordie’s album ‘Captain Hook’ ride. As I was listening I stopped thinking and worrying about what I was going to say for the interview. For the fact that I had been listening to Shordie’s music non stop over the past couple of weeks so I felt as if I had already known him. When we pulled up to the studio and we received a warm welcome by his manager and his team, Shordie was finishing up recording a song. After a little while, the blossoming Baltimore standout sat down with me and reassured what I thought to be true while riding in the car. That Shordie was as real and relatable as his …

New 90’s – [Chevy Woods]

Chevy Woods is nothing short of a legend in the hip-hop community, he has dropped at least a dozen of verses that I know word for word and I recently found myself wondering when I was going to hear some new music from him, then boom his new project titled “New 90’s” shows up on the timeline. After running through these eleven tracks a few times through I was impressed with the true 90’s sounding production, it’s as close as it can sound two decades later, and Chevy really excelled on the production provided. There is a handful of tree blowing anthems, a couple more laid back and introspective songs but more than anything be prepared for Chevy’s witty wordplay, he had plenty of memorable bars and even a couple sports references that caught my attention. There is a few features from Chevy’s right hand man and Pittsburgh leader Wiz Khalifa, and if you know anything about the chemistry these two have, then you know it’s about to be special.

Our 50 Favorite Wiz Khalifa Songs

In the music world, influence manifests itself in many different ways. Whether it be sonically — changing the sounds that artists use and often creating some sort of new trend and/or subgenre in the process — or aesthetically — changing the “cool” styles in music and the lifestyles that artists speak about in their songs — influence can arrive packaged as a quick viral moment or a lasting flame, both of which hold value in their own rights.  Pittsburgh’s own, the Taylor Gang representative himself, Wiz Khalifa, is one of the rare talents who comes around and entirely shifts the culture in both of the aforementioned ways. Especially when he first came out, Wiz’s lanky, tattooed build and effortlessly cool stoner lifestyle made him a genuinely alluring artist, and while his personal style (snapbacks, the dyed patch of hair, etc.) was worthy of mention, the music was there to back it all up. Simply put, Wiz’s style, both on the mic and off, quickly set a standard for creatives and other artists to congregate toward, marking him as one of music’s most underrated culture-shifters of the last decade or so. Even further, beyond the influence that Wiz has had on a …
