Type Shit! – [EGOVERT] ft. [Tay Money] & [Manny Sanchez]

Ever since I found out about EGOVERT a few months back, it has been absolutely mandatory that I tune into any and all of his new releases. His versatility is as prominent as his plethora of skills themselves, and you never know what kind of sounds he’s going to bring to life prior to pressing play which keeps you on your toes every time. Whether he’s getting into some quite introspective topics over a more melodious beat or he’s going completely off the rails on some unique bangers, he’s never off his game even slightly, and that’s why I know without a doubt in my mind that he’s going to blow up sooner rather than later. I’ve luckily gotten to know EGO personally since we connected on social media, and when he sent over an unreleased track featuring Tay Money and Manny Sanchez, I was counting down the days until everyone else got to witness the anthem he blessed me with early. Luckily, he decided to drop the track entitled “Type Shit” late last night, and it is undeniably a song that you need to drop whatever you’re doing and listen to. The beat is comprised of some hollow, echoing, …

i wish it didn’t hurt when you say you’re proud of me – [patchymate]

There appears to be an exciting trend emerging in music. New acts are combining their affection for emo lyricism with the punk-like soundscape of alternative rock that is reminiscent of the early and mid-2000s. This sound is addictively moving in and is on full display on Philadelphia native patchymate’s new song, “i wish it didn’t hurt when you say you’re proud of me.” Brought to life by live guitar instrumentation, lively drum patterns, and a dash of hyper-pop loops and glitches, patchymate creates vibe-inducing energy that is unapologetically fun to listen to. As described by patchymate on his Instagram, the newly emerging artist is diligently working on “big plans for the future, but these little SoundCloud songs are giving me something to do.” These little SoundCloud songs are building an impressive case for the burgeoning new artist and his unique style of music. Listen to “i wish it didn’t hurt when you say you’re proud of me” by patchymate below.

FromBeyondTheGrave – [BONES]

Twenty-six year old underground pioneer BONES returns with another impressive album titled FROMBEYONDTHEGRAVE. With a staggering 80+ projects in his catalogue, the Team SESH veteran is notoriously known for releasing short songs that (sometimes) barely last a minute. Yet, the impact of his work is never in question, as every ephemeral offering from him presents a new experimental edge. In my opinion, BONES arguably has the most consistent collection of bangers pound for pound. It’s remarkable that his fanbase’s expectations are always met despite the artist’s insistence to continually go against the grain, thereby creating an organic following that reflects his philosophy. If rappers can be contrarian, BONES is the fitting image; he’s unapologetically expressed his disapproval of mainstream rap stereotypes such as popping pills (xanax), glorification of status, and false image portrayal(s). Not to mention, BONES’s transcendence from any genre means he cannot be pinned exclusively to rap or hip-hop – he dabbles often between rock, metal, and even softer vocals with a ‘sad boy’ association. FROMBEYONDTHEGRAVE has a fitting run time of twenty-four minutes & twenty-five seconds with twelve accompanying tracks. My personal highlights are “2Stroke” and “Cement,” which sonically reflect the eerie album title and ominous vibe throughout. The album …

The Code – [King Von] ft. [Polo G]

If you’re at all familiar with the Chicago music scene, you already know that King Von and Polo G are two of the best narrators in the entire Rap world. Their stories are always truthful, and you can tell from the insane amount of specific details they highlight, leaving no room for making these things up whatsoever. Von is fresh off the release of his latest project Welcome to O’Block, and this album is yet another example of why he is one of the most talented and captivating artists in the game right now. I mention Polo earlier because he was recruited to join Von on a cut off the album entitled “The Code”, and this unbelievable record now has an even more enthralling DrewFilmedIt-directed visual to accompany it, so I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. As the scene is set, a tough-looking gentleman walks up to another guy wearing a suit, giving him a note that I can imagine represents him giving some secret information to the police in order to catch someone doing something illegal. Von and Polo are looking intently at a computer screen, and once the secret agent or police officer looks …

Ash Ketchum – [THE MXXNLIGHT] x [Sledgren]

THEMXXNLIGHT connects with super-producer Sledgren for a melodic play on Pokémon’s signature phrase, “gotta catch them all.” Opened by a subtle electric guitar solo, THEMXXNLIGHT, made up of brothers Akash and Krish Chandani, delivery a wavy melodic performance that taps into an unapologetic braggadocios energy. The combination of THEMXXNLIGHT’s style alongside Taylor Gang producer Sledgren combine for a drill inspired song that uses synths, lively percussion, and an overwhelming bass line, effectively creating a club-ready anthem. Although clubs are not operating as they were, THEMXXNLIGHT appears to be eager to restore a celebratory and party-like feeling amidst everything going on. This is THEMXXNLIGHT’s first solo release since sharing their five-track Mashallah EP in July.  Listen to “Ash Ketchum” by THEMXXNLIGHT below.

Pricey – [Capolow] feat. [Haiti Babii]

One thing that never goes unnoticed with me, is the massive amount of energy that bleeds from the Bay Area. Home of many creatives, Northern Cali is always known for delivering banger after banger that will for sure be in rotation at any function. While the Bay Area is most known for one distinctive sound, many artists are able to venture out of that world and tackle other avenues as well. Emerging artist Capolow is making his debut on our Lyrical Lemonade platform with the release of his latest visuals “Pricey” featuring hello California-native Haiti Babii. Capolow has had a pretty eventful career thus far. Most recently, he collaborated with another Bay Area heavy hitter Kamaiyah on their joint project Oakland Nights. Tailing right off of the success of that tape, Capolow came right back this month with the release of his latest full-length offering Kid Next Door, which is an album that satisfies many tastes and likings. For the visuals of “Pricey”, Capolow and Haiti Babii bring that high energy and vibe to his hometown. With the Bay being so heavily influenced by that west coast sound, “Pricey” features a great diversion from the ordinary and encompasses more of a trap …

Sangria – [$NOT] ft. [Denzel Curry]

Although I had heard $NOT’s name mentioned copiously in the past few years, it wasn’t until around the time he teamed up with our very own Cole Bennett just a few weeks ago to release his single “Revenge” that I actually made an effort to tune in. After listening, I was ashamed that I allowed myself to miss out on his wonderful music, and since then, I’ve gone back and revisited everything I was turning a blind eye to. Since listening up, I realized that he is one of, if not the most compelling and talented artists in the entire industry, showing off a variety of sounds that prove he is as dexterous as he is talented. As he gears up for the release of his upcoming album Beautiful Havoc, which releases this Friday, he has been dropping off a few singles from the project that have gotten fans, myself included, more excited than ever before. Most recently, he dropped off a brand-new single entitled “Sangria”, recruiting Denzel Curry and incredible producer Powers Pleasant to bring this record to life. While I’m honestly not sure if these two artists have worked together in the past, their equally aggressive, ruthless, and …

Diamond Choker – [Lil Gnar] ft. [Lil Uzi Vert]

I’ve already gone into detail about my admiration for Lil Gnar many times in the past, but I’m always down to talk about him some more. He’s the definition of a hustler, running a successful clothing brand that stemmed from his love for skateboarding before getting into the Rap game. This transition was seamless because of his early connection to the music industry, and it seems like everything he touches turns to gold as he can’t do any wrong, it seems. While his connections to various rappers and talents runs deep, I have to admit I was as surprised as I was excited when I first saw him teasing a Lil Uzi collaboration on his record “Diamond Choker”. As the beat begins, echoing, bouncy instruments begin to putter along before tapping percussion, and speaker-busting 808s enter into the picture and take this production to new levels. Gnar starts off with the chorus, showing off some unapologetically insistent bars that use a similar cadence to that of which he’s used in the past, but it’s as catchy as it is entertaining, so I’m always here for it. As he goes in for the first verse, his flow changes up slightly while …

Never – [Young Nudy]

Obviously, there is an overflow of unbelievable talent coming out of Atlanta. Despite all of the massive names that have come out of the Georgia capital, Young Nudy has always been one of my favorite artists. There’s just something about his straightforward, unapologetically gritty delivery that gets me every time, and although he might be making the transition from street life to fame, he’ll never forget his roots and the experiences that have molded him into the person he is today. Although he’s fairly consistent with new releases, his latest offering “Never” is yet another wonderful addition to his catalog of music, so I’m more than excited to share it with you. He recruits COUPE to produce this netherworld banger which includes, dark, ominous synths, classic rattling Trap percussion, and punchy drums before higher-pitched, outer space-sounding synths enter into the picture as Nudy begins to spit. In classic Nudy fashion, he talks some of his shit as the beat begins to take shape, giving us a small sliver of what’s to come as the rest of the song unfolds. As he raps his hook, he boasts some nonchalant, carefree lines that are choppy and he even pauses at certain times, …
