Thank the Gang – [Twelve’Len]

Miami-native Twelve’Len has appeared on the pages of LL before as a guest–most recently as a part of Cesar Santalo’s “Light You Up“–but here he makes his solo-Lemonade debut thanks to a charismatic effort in “Thank The Gang.” For this one, the up-and-comer takes a second to celebrate not just his accomplishments but the people behind him who have made it all possible and he does so with a retro twist. Grabbing a chiming, cushioned beat from Mickey De Grand IV & FnZ and loading the visuals with fluorescent lights and a blurry coating (, Twelve’Len gives off an 80’s R&B type feel. Even with a cushioned 80’s vibe, his voice is still splashed that Florida grit to give the effort some edge. No word on if this is a part of anything larger as of yet, but considering how strong this track is, it wouldn’t surprise me to see it on a tracklist down the line.

Everyday – [Splash Zanotti]

Florida emcee Splash Zanotti killed his Rolling Loud Set over the weekend and today he graces the Lyrical Lemonade pages with his video “Everyday.” The song stems from his project Sz Canis Majoris that dropped back in December of last year. In these FXRBES directed visuals Splash Zanotti is seen tying up a victim and torturing him whiling crooning over the track. Other scenes include Splashing reminiscing on more lighthearted times spent with his family and holding his son. Compared to the other songs in his discography this would be considered a switch up in Splash’s soundscape. On the contrarey, this is far from a feel-good song from the Miami lyricist. The message of the song and the images of the video are meant to portray a message that people hurt other people to feel. Watch the video for Splash Zanotti’s “Everyday” after the break.

Finer Things – [Yung Garzi]

Yung Garzi is making another well-deserved appearance on Lyrical Lemonade after the impressive release of his latest single, “Finer Things.” After hearing this new offering from the 21-year-old Miami native, there’s no doubt in my mind that he has the potential to make some serious noise in the industry, and rightly so, this new track is one that I think a lot of people will be excited about for a number of reasons. Right off the bat, you’ll notice Yung Garzi’s distinct voice and unique lyrical flow. The up-and-coming artist brings an exciting energy to the mic that is quite refreshing to hear, making it so that there’s no way you’ll be able to sit still while listening to this one. On top of that, it’s very important to point out how impressive the production quality of this track truly is. The producer, Andrew Luce, does a great job of complimenting Yung Garzi’s style with a hard-hitting ambiance, making for an irresistible sound that I personally can’t get enough of.  This new anthem has all of the right aspects, including a really dope and meaningful message. In a world where the finer things are considered to be centered around materialistic …

C.R.E.A.M – [G2]

Along with making his Lyrical Lemonade debut today, 808 Mafia artist and Mudboy affiliate G2 offers a new visual for his single titled “C.R.E.A.M”. The song stands for ‘Cash Rules Everything Around Me’ and was inspired by G2’s desire for wealth and prosperity. The video is packed with high energy and fire transitions, ultimately creating an intense and appealing atmosphere for viewers. “C.R.E.A.M” is a very honest, relatable, and transparent piece of art that comes from a deeper place than one may think. When we spoke to G2 about the depths of this record, he stated that he “was in Miami just living life and if you really listen you can tell that I’m actually saying something. It comes from a point in my life when I was a lover boy, but the girl I was in love with was slowing me down and holding me back. This is me showing the world I’m focused.” To say the least, we are excited to see what G2 has in store for the coming months. Be sure to watch this eye-catching visual below and follow G2 on Twitter and Instagram!

TOP 50 CHICAGO PROJECTS OF 2018

While Chicago has been known as a reputable city in hip-hop for numerous years now, this revered position has not arrived without the constant innovation and hard work of the artists that so faithfully represent the prowess of their home city.
