Nobody-[Peter Fenn]

Peter Fenn is an artist who Lyrical Lemonade fans are very familiar with. The well-known producer has been making a name for himself in various areas of music creation. For up and coming and well established artists alike, Peter Fenn is the guy you go to if you want your music to pop off.  As much as he’s been helping others though, Peter is just as good as a solo artist, which is the sole reason why he’s making it onto our pages today. The hitmaker just dropped a brand new track called “Nobody” and it’s definitely worth your ear. The guitar driven track creates an amazing vibe that is truly spectacular. After jamming to this one for a couple of hours straight, I’m leaning towards to saying that this might be one of Peter’s best songs to date. I was able to grab a quote from Peter and he explained that:  “Nobody is about that feeling you find someone that you can see a future with, but you still have some hesitation about even being in a relationship. As I was making this song and it started to progress, i started to realize it was super personal and I …

PREMIERE: Dance On My Grave – [Blake Banks]

Just a few short weeks ago, LA based and increasingly popular artist Blake Banks released his single, “Dance On My Grave,” a track that gained huge momentum and did fantastic numbers. Just today, he released a visual (produced by iKilledKiki) to the track, in which delirium seems to be the main energy. The video shows clips of banks bloodied laying in a shower, performing a show, and walking among LA rooftops, all with filters and effects that create a nearly hallucinogenic energy that accompanies the mystical love song’s vibration. Not only has Banks continued to solidify himself in the industry (teaming up with the likes of Post Malone) and only seems to further his success with mixed-genre bangers such as this one. Be on the lookout for more work from Banks as he looks to release more music in an upcoming project entitled, Risky Business. Watch, Blake Banks – “Dance On My Grave” (Music Video), below! @blakexbanks

Hydro/Frozone – [Nolanberollin]

Just the other day, I wrote about Nolanberollin’s brand new EP called [g-tec club], and he’s back with a brand-new visual. As I said in the other article, there’s nothing normal or typical about Nolan, and this individuality is what has drawn me into his music time and time again. As for the music video, he mashed his songs “Hydro” and “Frozone” together to kill two birds with one stone. The interesting thing about this is, only the latter is off of the aforementioned tape, and the former seems to be off of an entirely different project called Gary Oak. This EP came out just a few months ago so it’s still relatively fresh, but it’s just interesting to see two separate works of his collide in one common place. As for “Hydro”, majestic, almost angelic synths combined with extremely minimalistic percussion and drums lay the foundation for the instrumental. This isn’t uncharacteristic of Nolan’s music as every song seems to utilize some sort of unique sound that pairs with his unbelievably deep, sometimes monotone voice in an always appealing way. After his quick chorus, the beat plays out for about thirty seconds before he comes in for his verse …

Both Sides – [Gucci Mane] ft. [Lil Baby]

It’s always really interesting when an OG and a new school rapper team up to collaborate with one another. I’ve been listening to Gucci Mane since his pre-penitentiary days and he truly knew what it meant to be a trap house icon. His music might not have been the most intricate or dexterous, but he has a quality about his sound and tone of voice that just made listeners believe every single word he spoke, no matter how intense it might be. Lil Baby, on the other hand, has taken the mainstream Rap world by storm and it’s clear why he blew up after listening to any one of his songs. His flows are insanely complex, his voice is unique, and he just carries himself in such a confident yet humble fashion. Although it’s definitely not the first collaboration between these two Atlanta stars, the duo teams up for the lead single entitled “Both Sides” off of Gucci’s upcoming unnamed album. The beat begins with some hasty xylophone notes mixed in with what sounds like some background pan flutes before hard-hitting drums and classic trap percussion come into the picture in order to set the fast-paced tempo of this track. …

Ride Out – [Shoreline Mafia] ft. [Lil Yachty]

Shoreline Mafia is one of my absolute favorite groups out right now, and I know I’m not alone. I’ve been listening to them for years at this point, and their unapologetic attitudes mixed with some out of the box West Coast fueled beats along with innovative cadences and other unique experiments that always seem to work have constantly kept me coming back for more. They have such a unique way of being able to introduce certain gangster Rap themes into party anthems that are sure to turn any function up, and each member has an individualistic sound and persona that just contributes so much to the overall group. While they’ve obviously been exploding in the underground in recent memory, Lil Yachty has always kept his ear to the streets and hasn’t been one to shy away from praising or working with promising up and comers. It’s weird to even consider Shoreline up and comers anymore because of all their success, but I still think they could be considered this due to the fact that they don’t get nearly enough recognition or props for all of the success they’ve had in such a relatively short period of time. They’re not slowing …

Smoke With Everybody – [Fredo Ruthless]

I have been waiting to write this article for some time now, and it truly pains me that I have not been able to write about Fredo Ruthless more during my time as a blogger, but unfortunately, the Jackson, TN native and Nashville transplant has been incarcerated for over a year now on charges ranging from possession-with-intent to murder, and regrettably, this tense legal situation has largely halted Fredo’s music career which saw his single “Drug Addict” be the first track to organically reach over a million views from a Nashville artist in quite some time. However, his musical hiatus recently ended with his new single “Smoke With Everybody,” produced by MoneyTree615. It is rare to be gifted with a new, never before heard track from Ruthless, as he has struggled with nearly all of his music being leaked from jail and even his unreleased snippets have become some of the most popular local songs in his city. We can only hope that Fredo’s legal luck will soon change and I sincerely hope that he will get out soon so he can bless Nashville with even more music.

PREMIERE: McLovin – [Pasto Flocco]

Pasto Flocco is back with a new visual, this time for his sanguine and melodic new track “McLovin,” produced by HolyOne, and the Queens native shines in this video, exhibiting all of the swagger and charisma that first endeared him to his ever-increasing youthful audience and above all else it is plain to see that Pasto is enjoying every step of the way in his career. This happy-go-lucky tune is the first single off of Flocco’s upcoming mixtape Dreams 2 Reality which is slated for release sometime this summer, and if “McLovin” is any indicator of what to expect off of the new project then it is safe to say that we are all in for a treat. In this day and age, most rappers have pivoted to focusing on what ‘vibe’ they can create with their music, rather than giving explicit meaning and Pasto Flocco has a full grasp on this and creates these moods in his tracks masterfully, this time with his devil-may-care cut that is certain to be a summertime anthem to many.    

Premiere: You And Me Now-[Devault]&[Manila Killa]feat.[Griff Clawson]

If you’re looking for an electrifying song to kick start your weekend then I’ve most definitely got the perfect one for you. Devault and Manila Killa are two very respected names in the industry and it’s always a treat when you get two legends to team up on a track. Today, that happened as these two artists dropped a brand new offering together called “You And Me Now”. The electronic fueled ballad has all of the right energy to make you feel every feeling known to man. From the production standpoint, you know exactly what you’re getting when these two get into a room together. It’s unbelievable what they were able to create sonically. The 4 minute and 26 second song will put you in a trance as the angelic ambience takes over all throughout it. What’s even cooler about this song is that Griff Clawson made a well deserved appearance. If you haven’t heard of Griff Clawson before, then let this article serve as a blessing. The moment you hear Griff’s vocals, you’ll understand why it was so important for him to be integrated into this one. I love everything about this song. Every element is elite and there’s …
