Blckfriend Shares New Visual For “Robbery”

Rising from New York City, blckfriend has combined many genres to create a style that is distinctly his own. These elements also shine through in his live performances and experimental filmmaking, which have helped him not only accrue an audience on DSPs but also on socials, where he avidly posts freestyles to keep his fans engaged. Before signing with Babygrande Records, blckfriend had fully immersed himself in his artistry, weaving hip-hop, rock, punk, and grunge into his sound and style.   “It is rare to find an artist with multifaceted talents like blckfriend. When you see an artist live and he raps, sings, and plays the guitar it’s something special,” says Babygrande Founder Chuck Wilson.  This month, the aspiring artist released his official debut single “Robbery” and the supporting visuals. The music video for “Robbery” depicts the same talent and mystery that the track conveys. Directed by Jack Rottier, who is best known for shooting a handful of Yeat’s best performing music videos, the visual takes viewers to an urban landscape where villains and thieves move through the night. His ability to combine clever wordplay with off-kilter harmonies and rhythms, and dissect a beat while also delivering catchy flows. His talent truly shines …

Behind the Scenes of Yeat’s “Out thë way” Music Video

Enjoy the latest Behind The Scenes of Yeat’s “Out thë way” music video 🙂

Out thë way – [Yeat]

Yeat is undoubtedly one of the hottest new musicians in the entire world, he has established a cult fan base and is one of the more interesting artists in recent memory. One thing that Yeat also has is a close friendship with Lyrical Lemonade founder Cole Bennett, and today they are back with a brand new music video for his record “Out thë way”. This music video was shot two days ago, and Yeat was only on the set for less than twenty minutes total! In his own words, Cole Bennett said: “the entire video is one shot with a lively, imaginative world built around it. you can definitely feel my love for clowns and amusement parks through the atmosphere created”. With the understanding that Lyrical Lemonade is planning to eventually build an amusement park of its own, it makes sense that Cole would get some of those creative amusement park themes out on this one.   To close this article out, I am going to quote YouTube user Lootek, who commented: being a Yeat fan isn’t just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle, a reason to breathe, an escape from this cruel world filled with thieves. It’s art, the first …

WYO – [DCG Brothers] ft. [PGF Nuk]

Although drill music may have just started to pop off around a decade ago here in Chicago, it’s absolutely insane to think about how much it has impacted the entire music industry as a whole. Drill artists may have once been regarded by outsiders as aggressive, hostile music, but if you really listen to the words, it’s a story about the lives of these emcees. While there are clearly threats, violence, and antagonism throughout any drill song you tap in with that I may not condone myself, it is a part of the art and I feel like that needs to be respected in its own right. It also feels like this subgenre is one of the fastest moving and quickly transforming styles because usually you can track the evolution of a style and see how it has progressively changed, but that’s tough to do with drill considering how recently it was conceived and how much it has changed in only a handful of years. Classic drill and songs that came from the early 2010s will never go away luckily, but the new wave of the subgenre is here, and it is spearheaded by emcees like the DCG Brothers. These …

SLYDE – [Zelly Ocho]

Zelly Ocho has been on his grind for years and years, and while most people would have given up on their dreams and decided to swerve into another, safer lane, that is the exact opposite of what Zelly has done. Instead, it appears as if he has completely double-down on his music career, taking things to another level both in terms of consistency as well as his sound, because as soon as you tap in with even a single song of his, you’ll realize that he isn’t like anyone else out. His voice is just so loud, in your face, and unignorable, and while it often features plenty of effects and vibrant alterations, they are always done in a way that adds fuel to the fire that is his music. As the years have gone on, he became less of a name that I had heard in the past and more of an artist that I simply couldn’t get away from even if I wanted to, but when you listen to any one of his tracks, you’ll see why I would never even dream of trying to dodge new releases from the artist who originally called Cleveland home. Just a …

2k in the Soda – [Internet Money] ft. [LUCKI]

Even though it has been a couple of years since Internet Money dropped off their wildly successful debut album B4 The Storm which received raving reviews and turned out to be one of my favorite projects of 2020, the production powerhouse hasn’t seemed to take a break. Now, if you look at the timeline and realize that they haven’t dropped a project in a while, you might think otherwise, but they are the masterminds behind some of the industry’s greatest hits, and as they add more producers to their roster, they not only contribute to more records but also spread their versatility to so many different areas and genres. Sure, they have their regular collaborators like Lil Tecca, Trippie Redd, and Dro Kenji, but they are also known to keep a couple of tricks up their sleeves and will work with artists that I never really imagined they’d be in tune with when looking at the other musicians that they’ve produced for. After seeing the tracklist for their 6-track EP We All We Got that’s ready to be released on August 19th, my point is only further solidified because some regulars are included, but they also mix in surprise guests …

Can’t Die – [Rich Amiri]

Although there are literally so many artists that I am beyond thrilled to know about as they continue to rise to fame, there are very few that captivate me enough to drop everything and listen to as much of their music as I can so I can catch up on lost time. The last emcee that caused me to do this was probably Yeat because even though I wasn’t instantly all in on his music when my brother would randomly play me tracks here and there, he grew on me like wildfire and there were legitimately weeks and almost month-long stints where I would strictly listen to his music. Even though this was probably only about a year or so ago, I recently found out about an artist who captured my attention and enthusiasm much like Yeat did at first, and this emcee goes by a name I’m sure you’re already familiar with: Rich Amiri. I think it makes sense that Amiri caught my eye and I became obsessed because he often does utilize a sound that can be comparable to Yeat, but that comes with the fact that many of the producers he works with also work with the …

She Want Some More – [Internet Money] ft. [Ken Car$on] & [Lil Tecca]

When considering different powerhouses in the hip-hop industry currently, the list doesn’t extend very far at all without Internet Money coming into the discussion. The collective of producers took over a handful of years ago, and it seems like ever since, they have had a hand in some of the biggest hits in the business, so it’s obvious that they’re not ones to mess with. They also have a select few artists that they regularly work with on a variety of projects, and even though these emcees are people we’ve come to expect to work with IM, they never fail to impress every time they drop something new. I have been waiting patiently for a follow-up to the label’s next big project after their massively successful 2020 debut album B4 THE STORM, and even with the release of countless bangers ever since, I don’t know if I’ve been as excited about anything as I am for their upcoming EP WE ALL WE GOT which is set to release on August 18th. The tape will feature 6 songs and include artists like Lucki, Destroy Lonely, Yeat, Lil Yachty, and more, and the collective’s brand-new single “She Want Some More” featuring Ken …

X – [Ken Car$on]

Way back in the early 2010s, underground music had an entirely different meaning than what it stands for now. I feel like those were the days when SoundCloud was key, and if you wanted to discover something new, exciting, and genre-bending, that’s where you had to go. As the years went on, though, there was more accessibility to larger streaming platforms, and I think that so many musicians just started to release things on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music way more regularly than ever before. This led to a boom of artists like SoFaygo and SSGKobe blowing up, and the most recent emcees who are blazing their own trails include artists like Yeat and Ken Car$on. While I still personally consider these talents underground, I think I do so just because the mainstream isn’t ready for them. Not to say that it’s not good enough, because God knows that it’s so much better than the vast majority of the things you’ll hear on the radio, but the mainstream music scene seems to have this mold that if someone doesn’t fit into it, they’re just going to build their following in their own way without leaning on major labels or …

Minions: The Rise of Gru

Lyrical Lemonade has been around for not even a decade, and any follower of LL since 2013 knows that we started as a music blog that blossomed into a multi-faceted multimedia company. Most of our fans know that we don’t do collaborations often, but when we do, it’s usually something that makes a memorable moment. I’m sure at no point did anyone ever expect Lyrical Lemonade to collaborate with the Minions, but here we are! Not only did Lyrical Lemonade founder Cole Bennett direct the trailer for the new Minions movie, but he also convinced them to have Yeat create the soundtrack to it! This is one of the most exciting moments in my time at Lyrical, this is an amazing moment and I hope that we all can take a minute to appreciate it.   Oh yeah – Minions x Lyrical merchandise collab tomorrow!
