Trap – [Yung Gleesh]

By Timmy Risden // 15 Sep 2017

Yung Gleesh linked up with our own Cole Bennett recently to bring his track “Trap” to life with an eye-catching visual. Although Gleesh has been huge in the underground for awhile, 2017 has been a particularly impressive year for this artist with lots of exposure due to a variety of noteworthy releases. Cole did an excellent job on this one, utilizing his signature techniques that added some flavor to yet another fun track from this artist. Gleesh’s unique articulation in the booth has been influencing artists for years, as he continued to stray away from the common sound once again. Check this one out down below.

Final Phantasy – [Young Jasper]

By Timmy Risden // 15 Sep 2017

Young Jasper is back with yet another new track to impress titled “Final Phantasy.” Although you might’ve heard about this kid from bangers such as “Bussin‘” or “My Name Is Uno,” this artist really switched it up on this one by delivering a laid back track for those listeners that thought he was only capable of one sound. Whether he’s going hard or slowing it down, one thing I’ve always appreciated about Jasper is that he isn’t scared to show off his vocal range in addition to his rapping ability, this song being an excellent example of that. Give this dude a shot by listening to his latest track available down below.

Watch Lucki on Trending Topics

By Timmy Risden // 13 Sep 2017

Chicago-native Lucki became the latest guest on Pigeons & Planes “Trending Topics” interview series just a few days ago, and as a Lyrical Lemonade favorite, you can’t afford to miss this one. Trending Topics has an interesting way of pulling the personality out of artists by pulling up tweets they made years ago and asking them to talk about them. In the process, we heard a bit about Lucki’s opinion of artists such as Chief Keef and Lil Wayne, and even got his take on who the halftime show performance should be at the next Bears Super Bowl appearance. I found this interview not only creative, but hilarious as well. Give it a look down below.

Look At Me! – [XXXTentacion]

By Timmy Risden // 13 Sep 2017

XXXTentacion’s name has constantly been surrounded with controversy these past few months, especially in the last couple of days. However, this artist really wanted to stir the pot with the release of the visual for his hit song “Look At Me!” It seemed like months went on after this song’s release where you couldn’t go to any type of function without it being played at least once, often multiple times. The video has plenty of disputable scenes, such as the one of him supposedly faking his suicide on Instagram, or even the final scene showing X taking the life of a young boy on a stage. I’m sure there’s a number of responses that the public will give to this video, so there’s not much more for me to explain. Be sure you give this one a look for yourself down below.

Watch Rich The Kid Go Sneaker Shopping With Complex!

By Timmy Risden // 12 Sep 2017

As one of the more fashionable artists in Hip-Hop, Rich The Kid has been a highly-requested guest for Complex’s sneaking shopping series alongside Joe La Puma for awhile now. In this episode, Joe drew a ton of personality out of Rich The Kid by talking about his love for skateboard, stealing bikes to get money for shoes as a kid, and even some information on a shoe collaboration he has coming with Off-White. If you’re not too familiar with Rich, I highly recommend you give this episode a look as this wild character blew over six grand at the Stadium Goods store in NYC.

Money B*tch – [Qari]

By Timmy Risden // 11 Sep 2017

Qari called up Lonewolf to get behind the camera for his new music video, “Money B*tch.” With Mulatto on the instrumental, Qari’s close affiliate is seen throughout this colorful visual sitting side-by-side with the rapper. The easy-going track’s mood was matched by the talent of Lonewolf, utilizing many creative camera angles and lighting schemes that brought forward some extra effort to add yet another one-of-a-kind piece to this director’s portfolio. Be sure you start the week of right and give this one a look down below.

NO Stylist – [Reese Laflare]

By Timmy Risden // 11 Sep 2017

Reese Laflare is back with a new song to celebrate his birthday called “NO Stylist.” His delivery on this one is ironically stylish, giving his listeners a catchy flow that’s easy to catch yourself nodding your head to. The track flexes on celebrities that need assistance with their style simply, telling them he requires no stylist over an upbeat instrumental produced by District Yori and AL B. It’s not too lengthy, but it’s definitely worth your listen.
