Emperor of the Universe – [BabyTron]

By Elliot Montanez // 17 May 2022

BabyTron is an artist out of the midwest who we here at Lyrical Lemonade have been keeping a close eye on for a minute now, and this evening we are pleased to bring our audience BabyTron’s brand new music video for “Emperor Of The Universe”. This music video and song are different compared to any other project that we have worked on in the past, and not only that, it’s different than basically every other song in music history? That is because this record is BabyTron rapping over 21 different beats, and we shot the music video entirely on iPhone in 21 different locations to match. I don’t even know where to start with this video, so I will just talk about my favorite part, which is the ‘Hard In The Paint’ remix. The way that BabyTron and Michael Jordan go back and forth in this scene just made me fall out of my chair laughing, 10/10 all around. All of my bias aside, this was a really dope and creative video, it gave me 2017 vibes again and it has the feeling of a classic Lyrical Lemonade video. If there’s one thing I learned in this whole process, it’s …

The Story Behind the “Lucid Dreams” and “All Girls Are The Same” Music Videos

By Elliot Montanez // 13 May 2022

Juice WRLD is not only one of the biggest musical icons of our generation but in music history, what he was able to accomplish was truly unbelievable, and we are blessed to be able to have witnessed it firsthand. In our latest episode of ‘Behind The Video’, LL founder Cole Bennett broke down the story behind the classic music videos for “Lucid Dreams” and “All Girls Are The Same”. Cole spoke on some great moments and never heard stories in this BTV, not only that, he dropped plenty of other gems in here as well. In my opinion, this is the best BTV that we have dropped on the Lyrical Lemonade 2 channel to date, but I will let you be the judge!

Watch femdot’s new freestyle on AMPD

By Elliot Montanez // 13 May 2022

femdot has been on the ‘Back Home’ tour with Saba for the past month, he’s a busy man but he made some time to stop to see the gold folks at AMPD and give us a new freestyle over Jay-Z’s “Dear Summer” instrumental. Anyone who even slightly knows fem knows that freestyling and pure rapping is his bread and butter, so you don’t even need to press play before you know he killed this one! Rumor has it that this is the first of a few new freestyles that are going to be coming from the Chicago leader, so if you aren’t already, give him a follow on Twitter to keep up with him!

Z Money: The Lemonade Stand Interview

By Elliot Montanez // 13 May 2022

Z Money is somebody that needs no introduction, he is a Chicago legend and today I am proud to release our latest Lemonade Stand interview featuring him! I spoke with Z Money about several subjects including his brand new album, his relationship with Valee, the moment that “Two 16’s” started to blow up, mentorship he’s received from Gucci Mane, the schools he attended, and much more. This was a solid conversation and a much-needed interview from Z Money, it’s been a minute since he’s publicly spoken, and this was the perfect time to do so. Watch this brand new interview below!

The Top 5 Greatest Cookies of All Time

By Elliot Montanez // 6 May 2022

It’s 9:40 PM in Chicago Illinois – May 6th, 2022   I am in the living room of the Lyrical Lemonade office with Ausar, OG Stevo, Chris Patrick, and Justin Alvarez. I just got back from two weeks of touring with femdot on the ‘Back Home’ tour, and one question that arose in the green room multiple times was: What’s the best cookie of all time? We had plenty of passionate and spirited debates about this on the road: Frsh Waters loves butter cookies, femdot is a fan of snickerdoodle, and Amindi is a fan of the frosted animal crackers. After many days of thinking about this in my head, I bought this question up to Ausar, OG Stevo, and Chris Patrick. So here we are – now 9:50 on a Friday night at the Lyrical Lemonade office, ranking our top 5 cookies. _____   First things first – Chris Patrick is the WILDCARD of this debate. For starters, he started his list from 5 to 1, which I think we can all agree is weird. He was extremely passionate about these things called Vienna cookies, must be a New Jersey thing because none of us from the midwest has …

Victor Internet: The Lemonade Stand Interview

By Elliot Montanez // 2 May 2022

Victor Internet is one of the most talented and unique artists in Chicago, and a couple of months ago I was thrilled to bring him by the office for a new interview on The Lemonade Stand. I asked Victor about many topics including the different areas in Chicago he’s lived in, the time he spent living in Los Angeles, his latest project Blue 2000, artists he wants to work with, the impact his family has had on him, his friendship with the artist Heartgaze, what he’s currently working on and much more. Victor is a superstar in the making, if you aren’t familiar with him just yet, I highly suggest checking out this interview below!

I Feel Funny – [Justin Bieber]

By Elliot Montanez // 26 Apr 2022

Justin Bieber is arguably the biggest musician walking the planet, he’s been in the spotlight for what feels like my whole life, and today, he is releasing his first music video directed by Cole Bennett of Lyrical Lemonade! Earlier today, Justin posted a photo on his Instagram with Cole that was captioned “Hey @colebennett…. I feel funny”, and that left Bieber fans wondering what that even meant. Lucky for us, just a few minutes ago, the new visual for “I Feel Funny” was released. It doesn’t take much effort to notice that this record was just a fun process that’s not to be taken too seriously, it was awesome to see this side of Justin and maybe this is a sign to come of more collaborations between LL x JB. Enjoy this brand new visual below and if you aren’t already, make sure to subscribe to the Lyrical Lemonade YouTube channel!

PGF Nuk: The Lemonade Stand Interview

By Elliot Montanez // 15 Apr 2022

PGF Nuk is an artist out of Chicago who has been blowing up over the past couple of months, and just last week he came by the LL office in Chicago for a brand new interview! I asked PGF Nuk about plenty of topics such as his song “Whaddup”, working with Polo G, his mother’s impact on him, his favorite cereals, his upcoming album, growing up in Chicago, his future goals, and much more. After the interview, Nuk thanked me for how well the interview went, he said that most of his interviews feel like ‘interrogations’ unfortunately. I’m glad that we got to give him a solid interview that isn’t based on negativity, hopefully, that continues in his future interviews. Take some time out of your Friday to watch this brand new interview below!
