Activist – [Billyracxx]

Billyracxx has been featured on our pages a few times in the past, but it’s been a hot minute since his last appearance, but all of that nonsense is ending today as he is back with his brand new music video titled “Activist”. Billyracxx is one of the most interesting and unique artists out right now, he has a vibrant style that no one can imitate and this new visual is the perfect example of that. One of my favorite parts about this song was the insane instrumental that was handled by Chasethemoney, and Billyracxx ripped it to shreds & complimented it with a pleasing visual to put the cherry on top. Take a few minutes of your time to check out this brand new music video below and if you like it be sure to share it with a friend!

More Than Ever – [Lucki]

With Lucki’s impeccable Freewave 3 project making the rounds as an early contender for album of the year, it’s only right to acknowledge that Chicago’s own is one of the hottest artists in rap right now. He’s a storyteller for the ages and an artist wise beyond his years, so much so that it’s justifiable to say that Lucki’s possibilities for collaboration are limited simply by how skilled and unique he is. One name that always seems to get it right in pairings with the Freewave rapper, however, is Jake Osmun, whose back today to bless us with a brand new music video for “More Than Ever” produced by ChaseTheMoney. Rapidly-paced and fit to the general hard-nosed, tunnel-visioned sound of the instrumental, this music video takes Lucki’s untouchable creative vision and turns it into truly one of the best visual companions I’ve seen in a very, very long time. Between hypnotic effects, hazy scenes, and a constant emphasis on Lucki’s captivating character, “More Than Ever” paints Freewave 3 in a perfect way, and for that, we have to thank the director at hand. Jake Osmun snapped, and as always, him and Lucki are an unbeatable combo on the visual side of things. Watch …

UnoTheActivist, Thouxanbanfauni, and the SoundCloud Age

In the age of the internet, the avenues in which we consume music are constantly changing. From DatPiff to Apple Music, artists and fans constantly chase one another around, assigning value to platforms using the metrics of social media and, often times, pure volume of music available. When people see new communities form, they flock, just as we have watched happen with SoundCloud in recent years. With this, eras of music are becoming increasingly defined by these avenues in which they’re experienced and therefore, remembered (Napster, being a prime example). We associate music with the platform we enjoyed it with, and not until the 2000s has this platform-defined nostalgia truly come to prominence — just look at social media and you can find a plethora of odes to the not-so-convenient methods of getting music that sites like Napster and Limewire once offered.  Adjacent is the fact that, in the age of digital streaming, the decision of which platforms are prominent and which platforms are left behind can often exhibit listener-induced trends in the ways we all consume and promote music. For SoundCloud, characterized by its accessibility and DIY spirit, it’s time to assess where we are on this curve, all …

Freewave 3 – [Lucki]

Chicago’s own Lucki has been teasing the release of his third edition of his Freewave series for a minute now, and just a few minutes ago he blessed his rapidly growing fan base with the project! The fans have been impatiently waiting this release for quite some time now, and Lucki didn’t hold back at all as he provided us with fifteen new records that will be in rotation for years to come. CHASETHEMONEY produced a good amount of this project and some of my personal favorite joints are the ones that he worked on, but believe me when I say that this project is sensational from top to bottom. The only feature on this tape comes from Earl Sweatshirt, which is awesome to see because Lucki fans know that Earl Sweatshirt has been one of his biggest inspirations for years now. Stream this brand new project via Spotify below and if you like what you hear be sure to share the music with a friend or loved one. From all of us here at Lyrical Lemonade, congratulations on this release Lucki!

Lil Jesus EP – [Pollari]

I have said it before and I will say again, the best part about following artists careers is that you get to witness massive growth over the years, and it’s been an honor to watch Pollari reach this point. Yesterday the Lyrical Lemonade favorite released his brand new EP titled “Lil Jesus”, which is by far his best work to date in my opinion because of all of the different sounds he experimented with. It features a couple of amazing records that fans were already familiar with like Battlescars featuring fellow LL favorite Lil Skies, but for the most part it’s brand new bass knocking jams with addicting melodies that anyone can enjoy. Stellar production is something that Pollari always seems to have and he really outdid himself this time around as he recruited producers ChaseTheMoney, Supahmario, Lukrative, Hollow, Deliverthecrush, callari, Taz Taylor and Sensei to help create this masterpiece of a project. Stream this awesome new tape via Soundcloud below and if you enjoy it be sure to keep up with Pollari by giving him a follow on Twitter here! From myself & the whole Lyrical Lemonade family congratulations on this release Pollari!

More Than Ever – [Lucki]

Motivation and improvement are the names of the game right now for Chicago-bred artist, Lucki. Throughout 2018, he’s been taking over headlines with several standout singles and the replay-worthy EP, Days Before II, and now, the budding star is here to take over our pages once again with his latest track, “More Than Ever”. Produced by CHASETHEMONEY, this song pairs two incredibly promising talents with one another to make for a remarkably focused offering. Lucki speeds over the glassy instrumentation with lines about his determination toward success as well as the lessons he is able to learn from pain (“I know she ain’t loyal, but she made me better”), and as a result, “More Than Ever” comes across as an anthem of reflection for 2018, recapping the highs and lows with one everlasting commonality: that these moments can help us become better. Be sure to stream this one on Spotify at the link below and get ready for 2019, as Lucki is sure to keep the hits coming!

Off Deez – [J.I.D] ft [J. Cole]

Dreamville’s J.I.D gave us without a doubt one of the hottest projects of 2018 with the release of “DiCaprio 2,” which included his hit single “Off Deez.” The song features J. Cole and is given a new life today as the duo teams up with Lyrical’s very own Cole Bennett for a mind boggling visual. J.I.D and J. Cole flow effortlessly over the ChaseTheMoney produced beat as Cole gives the video a dark image with vibrant animations. Be sure to check out the new visual below and to come see J.I.D live at our Christmas show December 22nd!

Make Money – [Jimothy]

Jimothy, formerly known as Jimothy Lacoste, is creating an endless summer out of the UK right now by way of addictive melodies and positive sentiments. His style is defined by an easily lovable personality and a simple yet relatable style of lyricism that’s equally as entertaining and hilarious as it is truly applicable to all of our lives, making for a machine-like knack for crafting anthems. Today, Jimothy puts these traits on display and encourages us all to chase the bag with a sparkling new offering, “Make Money”. Just as the title denotes, this track focuses on hustling and making paper, day in and day out. Lacoste blends a dreamy world of instrumentation with legitimately valuable advice on how to go out and reach your goals, and as a result, the song is a sure-fire motivator and a perfect addition to Lacoste’s flawless catalog. This is certainly an artist to watch for the future, so check out “Make Money” below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Off Deez – [J.I.D] x [J. Cole]

J.I.D is a favorite here at Lyrical Lemonade and so is Dreamville leader J. Cole, so when I saw that they hooked up on a new track I stopped everything I was doing & gave it my upmost attention. As if this record couldn’t look any more appetizing the ChaseTheMoney production credit guaranteed that it was going to be a hit, but after listening to this one several times through I was truly stunned at just how well it turned out, it exceeded my already high standing expectations. To hear any artist out spit like this is just something you don’t see everyday, the way that they switched the pace of their flows back and forth throughout this track was very impressive, furthermore solidifying both of them as top tier emcees in the game. Stream this brand new offering below and if you like it be sure to follow J.I.D on Spotify & get in tune with his movement, I am sure this is not the last time we will hear about this song.
