Just How It Is – [Young Thug]

Atlanta native + superstar Young Thug’s album “So Much Fun” has had massive success this year, it’s in contention for one of the best projects of 2019, and just a couple days ago he released a brand new music video for “Just How It Is”. This record was a fan favorite off of the project so it was only a matter of time before Young Thug blessed his fans with a music video for the track, and although I expected it to be good he went above and beyond, exceeding my expectations. Take a few minutes out of your day to watch this brand new visual below.

Young Thug Solidifies His Superstar Status on ‘So Much Fun’

By Lee Mcintosh It has been nearly six years since Young Thug emerged into the spectrum of the masses, and not too many artists can say that they have had a career quite like his. Coming onto the scene sounding much different than everyone else, Thug received a lot of criticism for his style of rap, his actions, and his overall persona. As the years passed, his notoriety in the rap game is like no other–proving he was way ahead of his time. After teasing fans with his official debut album Hy!£UN35 (Hi Tunes), it eventually became nothing but a myth. Will we still get it?–the world may never know. However, here we are in the year 2019 and Thugger has finally blessed his fans with the release of his debut album So Much Fun. This project could not have come at a better time in his career. He has achieved a new level or stardom–much bigger than he would have had if he originally released a debut album in 2016. The success of his YSL compilation album Slime Language and birthing the talents of Gunna, Lil Keed and Lil Duke, proves his talents as not only an executive, but a tastemaker. Nonetheless, the fans …

Premiere: Spiral – [Facer]

With collaborations ranging from the likes of Lil Yachty and Young Thug all the way to commercials for Kylie Jenner and Target, it goes without saying that Glassface is quite a prominent name in the visual art world. In fact, I’m sure that a lot of our readers have come across Glassface’s work with none other than LL favorite tobi lou! One fact that may be lesser known about the top-tier visual artist, however, is that Glassface is also a producer, singer, and songwriter under the name Facer. Today, we have the pleasure to premiere the latest release from the multi-faceted creative, “Spiral.” First things first, I must say that despite Glassface’s prowess as a visual artist, he’s a hell of a musician, as well. Facer isn’t some half-serious side project; rather, it’s a remarkably impressive outlet of creativity that defies the boundaries of genre, pushing the sonic needle forward in the process. With “Spiral,” Facer puts this on full display, blending mesmeric production with ethereal vocal runs to maintain a uniquely alluring sound. Only adding to the otherworldy magic here, the complementary visuals bring “Spiral” to the next level. Of course, being that the artist otherwise known as Glassface is …

Hopeless – [Cst Dizzy] ft. [Cst Truey]

On the low, Milwaukee has been producing some real dope artists. I recently discovered Cst Dizzy via SideStream and I have been listening to him ever since. Cst Dizzy’s recent release, “Hopeless,” is an emotional, smooth, and melodic trap banger coming off of his project titled DIZZYGOHARD. The Milwaukee emcee puts his versatility on full display throughout this track, crooning his way through an atmospheric and lush instrumental with a-1 melodies and effortless flows. Uplifting, introspective, and motivational, Dizzy’s vocal delivery is comparable to artists such as YNW Melly, Young Thug, and other melodic rappers running the game. Assisted by a feature verse from Dizzy’s crewmate Cst Truey, “Hopeless” serves as an authentic taste of Milwaukee’s streets. Despite the song’s title, Dizzy remains hopeful in his lyrics, promising his listeners that he will remain focused until he makes it out of the hood. We’re rooting for you Dizzy. Listen to “Hopeless” here: Words by Barry R

Watch Juice WRLD’s brand new interview with No Jumper

No Jumper has always been a great platform to find awesome interviews with some of the hottest new artists in the game, but Adam22 has really been pumping out some great interviews this past week one after another. First he had in-depth interview with the legend Young Thug, he also recently sat down with one of my favorite rappers Denzel Curry for a great conversation, and now he is back with his latest interview featuring the Chicago phenom Juice WRLD! When these two sit down and speak it feels more like two old friends chopping it up as opposed to your regular old interview, and they really packed a ton of cool topics into this fifteen minute conversation. Adam asked Juice about things such as how it feels to have blown up so fast, touring overseas, why he enjoys being in a relationship, live streaming, writing “Lucid Dreams” in twenty minutes, being a great freestyler, conspiracy theories, his homies Polo G + G Herbo, all of the talent coming out of Chicago right now, his fashion sense and robbing scammers. I am sure it won’t be too long before Adam drops another great interview off for us, but until then …

Misunderstood – [Yung Bans]

The journey that Atlanta native Yung Bans has traveled over the past few years to get to this point is unlike anyone else, he has overcame advertises that are unimaginable, and although I won’t go in-depth about those any true Yung Bans fan knows he has came a long way to this release of his brand new debut album titled “MISUNDERSTOOD”. This project is a total of nineteen tracks in length and it contains some of the best material Yung Bans has released to date hands down, that’s what I was expecting though, this was a long time coming and I knew that Bans would have some serious heat tucked away for this special moment. Although Yung Bans was clearly the shining factor on this project, there are multiple star studded features from the likes of XXXTentacion, 03 Greedo, Young Thug, Gunna, YNW Melly, Lil Tjay, Slim Santana, Future, NAV and last but not least, Lil Durk! I enjoyed each and every single one of these records provided, but a couple of my favorites include the infectious track “I Don’t Even Crip” as well as HOT record “Ready Set Go”. Stream this brand new album via Spotify below and if you like …

The Dubs – [Ed Balloon]

Here on Lyrical Lemonade, we’ve already covered a couple of the singles in support of Ed Ballon’s brand new album The Dubs, and as of this past Friday, we can finally listen to the project in full!  Right from the get-go, on skeletally-produced, synth-heavy tracks like “Edges” and “Hero” featuring Illa J, Ed establishes himself as a compelling songwriter, getting introspective on most tracks, but also forcing listeners to get up and dance while singing along to his incredibly addicting hooks. Speaking of hooks, Ed seems to have them down to a science, as with every track on here, I find myself singing along at one point or another, and this balance that Ed creates is quite impressive. Vocally, Ed is all over the place in the best possible way, and the standout track “Du Rags In The Air” with Niu Raza, captures this perfectly. On the chorus, he’s nearly whispering, and on one of the verses, we hear him channeling his inner Young Thug for some deep, yelpy vocals, showing off Ed’s impressive range.  Ed and his band killed it on the production side as well, which only adds to the album’s greatness. While they are capable of making …

MLK – [Anwar]

One thing that I pay close attention to is when I hear artists I respect talk about some other artists that they listen to, so a couple months ago when the homie Matty Wood$ said that he was rocking with fellow St. Louis creative Anwar, I had to check him out. Since that time I have covered Anwar once or twice and I have found myself liking his material, and today he is back with his brand new release titled “MLK”. When I first glanced at the title and cover photo I instantly thought of the Young Thug record with the same name & picture, and I was expecting him to possibly do a remix on that Thug beat, but he took his own slow paced approach to this track. He sliced through the LoydFlannel production with multiple different styles, showing his creativity and flashes of potential, I expect to see him continue to grow as an artist this year & eventually make some real noise. Anyways, listen to this brand new tune below!

Watch Young Thug’s brand new interview with No Jumper

Young Thug is arguably the most popular rapper in the entire world right now, so when I saw Adam22 from No Jumper sat down with him for a new interview, I was glued to my computer screen. You will find these two speaking about plenty of topics including his come up, how his life has changed, his “don’t give a fuck” attitude, being an innovator, his relationship with Future, the potential he sees in Juice WRLD, Lil Wayne, freestyling, working with Lil Nas X, Lil Keed being next up, finding Gunna early, how he wanted an OG to teach him when he was coming up, what it’s like being a superstar, social media, his latest record “The London”, touring with J. Cole, why he dislikes revenge, the Taylor Swift situation, his first deal only being 10-15 thousand, his forthcoming album, running for president and more!
