Nothing To Me – [Quin NFN]

By Elliot Montanez // 11 Aug 2020

Austin, Texas native Quin NFN is one of the hardest new artists out, in my opinion, he is unbelievably talented + rhymes harder than damn near anybody that you can think of. Today, Quin NFN is back on our site with his brand new music video for “Nothing To Me”, which is already one of my favorite joints from him yet. Whenever Quin gets on top of a good beat, it’s game over, he can float over instrumental forever seemingly, at least that’s how this track felt. Once he started going, he didn’t let up for two and a half minutes straight, spitting nothing but HEAT and braggadocious bars that are simply easy to like. Watch this new visual below and if you like it, send the video to a friend! Produced by Cio Made The Track

Mmhmm – [DCG Bsavv] x [DCG Msavv] x [DCG Shun]

By Elliot Montanez // 11 Aug 2020

DCG Bsavv, DCG Msavv, and DCG Shun are without a doubt the hottest new rappers in Chicago, no doubt about it. They have been making waves lately, releasing straight up addicting music, and always compliment their songs with the most quality + entertaining visuals to match. While the guys were recently on a trip to Los Angeles, they managed to link up with notable names such as G Herbo, but they also were able to shoot this new music video for “Mmhmm” during that time span. The way that these three bounced off of each other on this track was refreshing, to say the least, they all complimented each other flawlessly + displayed what I would consider some friendly competition, pushing each other to go as hard as they could! This was an awesome release all around in my opinion, but see what you think by checking it out for yourself!

B*tch Please – [Wallie The Sensei]

By Elliot Montanez // 11 Aug 2020

Wallie The Sensei is somebody who I was got familiar with a few weeks ago when I came across his largest record “Scandalous”, and that lead me to check out the rest of his catalog. Not too long after that point, he released a new collection of songs that he deemed “B*tch Please”, which features three records. I don’t know if this is an EP or just a three-track pack, but regardless, each of these songs HIT and it’s well worth the listen. I still need to do some more research into Wallie + take more time to thoroughly listen through his catalog again, but I am definitely liking everything that I’ve heard so far. Stream these new songs via Spotify below!

Booby Trap – [Danny Towers]

By Elliot Montanez // 11 Aug 2020

Florida rapper Danny Towers just dropped a music video for “Booby Trap” about twenty minutes ago, and it’s nothing that you want to miss out on. When Danny Towers released his 2019 project Tarantula, it was an instant standout + a memorable project from the year, and this song here was easily one of my favorite songs off of the tracklist. I have been wondering for a minute now if they would ever put out a music video for this track, so I was overjoyed this afternoon when I saw that they finally released this visual! This song is a hard-hitting banger that embodies the sound that Danny Towers has provided us up until this point, and it’s matched with a dark, clever and at times funny music video that’s filled with faces that you will likely recognize. The rest of 2020 is going to be a super interesting + important time for Danny, I see him taking that next big step forward in his career and hitting a level of stardom. Watch this brand new music video below and if you enjoy it then leave a comment underneath it!

Journal #4 – [Hannah Got Raps]

By Elliot Montanez // 11 Aug 2020

On any given day, you can find a new amazing artist out of Chicago if you just do a little digging. I have been covering the Chicago music community for six years now and it never fails, there’s plenty of talented creatives all over this beautiful city, and today I got familiar with a dope emcee that goes by Hannah Got Raps. Hannah just released a new music video earlier today for “Journal #4”, and I couldn’t get enough of it, it’s filled with great raps, nostalgic flashbacks, and visually pleasing camera shots. This is the first time that I have listened to Hannah’s music, and the first time that she has graced our lemon filled pages, but it surely will not be the last. Take some time out of your Tuesday to check out this new music video below! Directed by Ali LeRoi

10.25.19 – [Kembe X]

By Elliot Montanez // 10 Aug 2020

This morning I loaded up Soundcloud and was pleasantly surprised when I saw that Chicago native Kembe X released a new track last week, it’s an ear-pleasing joint titled “10.25.19 (warrior)”, it’s a song that you don’t want to sleep on! For several years now, I have believed that Kembe X has been one of the most talented & underrated artists that Chicago had to offer, but over the past year or so, he has hit an amazing stride + has been seemingly having the best year of his career. This record here may be a loosey, but it’s still a solid tune that finds Kembe speak about some of the advertises that he has had to overcome but at other points of the song, he touches on his vices + his journey in general. Stream this brand new release on Soundcloud below! Kembe X, · 10.25.19 (warrior)

A Letter To The Streets – [Sally Sossa]

By Elliot Montanez // 10 Aug 2020

This Monday morning we have an artist that goes by Sally Sossa who is making her second appearance on Lyrical Lemonade with her brand new offering titled “A Letter To The Streets”. Sally Sossa doesn’t have a big catalog at all, actually, she has a rather small one, only having two releases songs on Spotify including this joint here. What she does have though is charisma, superior rap abilities, silky smooth flows, and a seemingly loyal fanbase when you look at her streaming numbers. It truly doesn’t take more than a listen or so to see that Sally Sossa has a great amount of potential, it’s going to be awesome to watch her progress in her career, she might be the next big artist out of Texas. Take a few minutes of your day to check out this brand new joint below and if you enjoy it then share this track with a friend.

You – [Finger Beats]

By Elliot Montanez // 8 Aug 2020

Anyone who knows me understands that I am a sucker for some good instrumentals, so whenever I find a new dope producer, I am more than excited. Today, I came across a new act that goes by Finger Beats, who is making her Lyrical Lemonade debut today with her visual for “You” featuring Ondine. There are plenty of different types of ways to capture peoples attention with an instrumental, some people will perfectly flip a sample & some will rely on the hard-hitting bass to lead the beat, but this joint here just found the perfect rhythm + bounce that when you hear it, you can’t help but just enjoy it. Check out this brand new release below and if you enjoy the music then drop a comment under the video.
