Dj Dollamenu Debuts Visuals For ‘Hey Siri’

In the past few years, we have witnessed many successful artists emerge from South Carolina. Hip-hop rappers like DaBaby, J.Cole, Toosii, Mooray, and many others have brought light to the Carolina hip-hop scene with different styles and forms of music. TJ Wright or better known as DJ DollaMenu is an open-format DJ signed to Bud Light. He developed a unique music taste during his childhood when his sister who worked at Walmart in the 90s, brought him different CDs every week. One week he could be jamming to Outkast, while the next week he might be grooving to Spice Girls. Having access to many unique and versatile artists, played a major role in who DollaMenu is today. Not only is he the official DJ of the Charleston RiverDogs, but he also began a career as a rapper. His freestyle to Jack Harlow’s First Class went viral earlier this year on Tik-Tok and received over 52k views, and counting. “I rap about regular stuff but I make it sound cool,” the rising artist stated.  Recently, the Aiken County rapper released his latest song Hey Siri produced by CURRYSAUCE & Jerry Feels Good. On this record, Dollamenu brought a different vibe to …

Toosii Returns With New Single “Love is…”

Earlier this month, Capitol Records artist Toosii’s, shared a snippet on his Tik-Tok. The song was used for over 35,000 videos and received over 14 million views. On July 15, the Love Cycle artist released the official song titled ‘Love Is…’ with visuals to support it. Directed by Noratchetss in Los Angeles, the video reflects on a relationship’s tragic end.

The Cheater – [Lil Gotit]

Throughout my years in this industry as a writer and contributor for Lyrical Lemonade, I have honestly come across few talents who are as surprising as Lil Gotit. The Atlanta emcee was always someone I had enjoyed even early on, but I really only listened to him when he was featured on one of his brother, Lil Keed’s songs, and that was really the extent of my experience with him. Then, one day I randomly decided to check out one of his earlier mixtapes to just find something new and different to listen to, and that is exactly when I turned into a fan of the young star. I honestly don’t know what song did it for me, but I knew that as soon as I heard how versatile his voice could be and how enthusiastic his cadences proved to be, I knew that he was going to be one of my favorites for quite some time and that admiration only continues to skyrocket now that his latest project The Cheater is in our hands. I am always happy when we receive new music from him, but it seems like this year started out pretty quietly when compared to other …

Take Care – [Lil Gotit] ft. [Toosii] & [Millie Go Lightly]

I think it has barely been a week since I last covered a new Lil Gotit song, but that was the first track that he has released in quite some time. With that being said, I think it’s officially safe to say that Gotit season is back in full force, and that’s something that everyone should be beyond excited about, especially with such a solid foundation built beneath his already impressive steps in the right direction. Last year, we found out exactly why he was the “Top Chef”, cooking up insane records that seemed to only get better by the day, but this year, with a project entitled The Cheater releasing at some point this spring, I think we’re in for an entirely new side of the talented Atlanta phenom. Alongside the announcement of this forthcoming tape is a song called “Take Care” featuring Toosii and Millie Go Lightly, as well as a BeDifferent Media-directed music video that is as clean as can be in the song, though, we are heaved into a world of lighthearted melodies, careful percussion, and always pungent drums that is only elevated by the effervescent vocals of Millie as the song progresses. Gotit shows off …

One Time – [Luh Dino] ft. [Toosii]

Youthful Atlanta rapper Luh Dino is fresh to our pages today with his new collaborative visual with North Carolina artist Toosii who is beginning to capture the mainstream’s attention with his introspective lyrics and sweet melodic style, and Dino accompanies him well. There is little drop off between the two and I am very impressed with Luh Dino and am eager to hear more from him. He certainly is in the new pantheon of Atlanta artists looking to break through as the years change. If Dino is able to stay consistent there is little doubt in my mind that he will be one of the biggest new artists to come out of Atlanta and also look forward to hearing him find his sound more and more. Definitely add this track to your playlists and keep an eye on Luh Dino for the rest of 2021.

Back Together – [Toosii]

North Carolina’s Toosii is one the hottest rising artists in the rap and r&b space right now. Recently Toosii released visuals for his new single entitled “Back Together.” If you’re a huge r&b fan you might recognize that the sample in this record is from Kaleem Taylor’s single “Feel.” With these visuals, Toosii shows us flashbacks of more simple and blissful times of moments he spent with his significant other. This single and video is a great starting point for the rollout of Toosii’s forthcoming album ‘Thank You For Believing’ which is set to release on May 7. This should be the North Carolina crooner’s biggest drop to date from the amount of press and hype Toosii’s received in 2020 and coming into 2021. “Back Together” is a record that will have you fighting the urge to text your ex or old fling, a dangerous feeling, but makes a great premise to a lead single. Watch Toosii’s new video for “Back Together” for yourself after the break.

34Corine – [TiaCorine]

I know I’ve been saying this all 2020, but women are running rap music this year. I don’t think I’ve heard a project from a woman emcee I didn’t believe that was at least solid and that I didn’t run back multiple times. Tia Corine is a rapper from Winston Salem, North Carolina who is quickly making a name for herself and her lyrics and flow stand out from the typical content. It’s the Dragonball Z skits and the lyrics and flows for me on Tia’s newest project 34Corine. This is only the tip of the iceberg for her, no I’m serious it is. She’s gotten co-signs and singles in the vault with people such as SZA, Isaiah Rashad, and an ep with Kenny Beats in the works. The South Coast Music Group affiliate looks to follow in the success of fellow label mates Dababy and Toosii heading into 2021 and to build a household name for herself. Press play on TiaCorine’s new 8 track project ‘34Corine’ after the break below.

Mopsticks – [Toosii]

Toosii returns to the Lyrical Lemonade pages today bearing gifts with his infectious single and video for “Mopsticks.” It seems like every time I open Twitter or Instagram, I see his fans sharing a song or a snippet of a video from Toosii, reflecting the fact that the rising talent has been building his following the right way by engaging with his core fan base and of course dropping enticing music, as well. “Mopsticks” is my favorite track that was on his most recent album Who Dat, and following up its infectious energy, the video features Toosii working as a janitor while narrating a story about him being a ghostwriter for Lil Wayne. The other janitor doesn’t believe him, and Toosii takes offense and knocks him out, then proceeding to carry the other janitor off. As the video progresses, Toosii is seen taking the building over at night and wreaking havoc throughout the school with his crew, matching the energy of “Mopsticks” with a captivating visual. Watch the visuals for Toosii’s melodic anthem “Mopsticks” below:

Opps – [Toosii]

Raleigh, North Carolina recording artist Toosii continues to flood the streets with releases and his latest offering “Opps” is a melodic banger. North Carolina is hot right now and it looks like they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down. The tar heel state’s talent is on display with artists like J.Cole at who is at the forefront of hip-hop right now and becoming an icon in his own right. On the other side of the spectrum, there are emcees like DaBaby and his artist Stunna4Vegas who are taking off and are some of the hottest risers in rap right now. Toosii may very well be the next name to emerge from the state with the kind of potential and drive he has. At a young age of 19, he has an early grasp in creating catchy street anthems which remind me of popular newcomers like Roddy Ricch. Similar to Roddy, just because Toosii has melodic hooks he doesn’t mean he lacks creative lyricism or witty wordplay. Stream his track for “Opps” below!
