Dilla Back – [Femdot]

By Cole Bennett // 3 Sep 2019

Femdot is one of the hottest new rising rappers out of Chicago’s thriving music community, and this afternoon he is back with a brand new offering titled “Dilla Back”. This new joint has a silky smooth feel to it with a taste of an old school R&B as well, match that with femdot’s impeccable rhyming abilities & the gorgeous backing vocals & we have a hit on our hands. The replay value that this track has is unbelievable, I have ran through it again and again for at least twenty minutes straight, and I have a good feeling that you will find a liking to it too. Stream this brand new record below and if you are located in cities such as Denver, Los Angeles, Kansas City + more be sure to visit Tobi Lou’s website to get tickets to catch femdot opening for him on tour this fall!

Out Of Luck – [Lil Tecca]

By Cole Bennett // 31 Aug 2019

Lil Tecca is one of the favorites here at Lyrical Lemonade, he is fresh off of the release of his stellar new project We Love You Tecca and just a couple of days ago we released a brand new visual for his song “Out Of Luck” off of his tape. A lot of things have changed since the last time we shot a visual for Lil Tecca, anyone who has watched just how fast he has grown in the past six months knows that, he is now a certified rising star and is looking at decades of superstardom to come. Every single song on his new album absolutely smacks but this record here is one of our favorites, so we had to give it a crispy clean + proper music video that it deserved! Over three million people have already tuned in so you might as well join them, press play below!

By Cole Bennett // 24 Aug 2019

Chance The Rapper has been a favorite here at Lyrical Lemonade since the beginning but that’s no secret, he recently stopped by Shade 45 & every time he links back up with the legend Sway it’s always a great conversation so I was eager to tune in. Sway and his team asked Chance about plenty of topics including how his life has changed since getting married, Barack Obama, when he hosted SNL, giving back to his community, his records “We Go High” and “5 Year Plan”, dealing with courts, how he deals with negative criticism, The Big Day, the idea of nostalgia, the skits on his tape, getting closer with his brother Taylor Bennett + their collab record “Roo”, his wedding day, important lessons he has learned from his father, being an independent artist, his music videos, his faith, his loyal fan base, his upcoming tour and he spoke in-depth about some of the features on his project! Watch this brand new interview below.

Pop My Shit – [Lil Gotit] x [Lil Keed]

By Cole Bennett // 20 Aug 2019

It was a little over a month ago when Lil Gotit gave us his sensational record “Pop My Shit”, and late last night he blessed his growing fan base with the brand new remix for the track featuring his homie Lil Keed! These two have grown up together in the game and it’s well known that whenever they are on the same track together it’s going to be special, but this one was a little more interesting because the original version was so good that it seemed as if it would be hard to top, but somehow Lil Keed made this amazing song even better! This is arguably the most addicting song that you will hear all day, don’t wait another second, press play below! Produced by Jgramm Beats

Chi’s Interlude II – [femdot]

By Cole Bennett // 13 Aug 2019

When thinking back to when I first discovered femdot’s music and looking at where he is now in his career one thing is clear, he has came a long way. He has grown into one of the leaders in Chicago’s music scene by building one brick at a time, and today he is returning with the latest brick to his kingdom, in the form of “Chi’s Interlude II”. If you have been following femdot for as long as we have then you surely remember his original ‘chi’s interlude‘ that he released back in 2017, so with naming this new joint the second of the series of sorts it had to be great, and of course femdot came through with yet another classic record! I loved this new release and I got a good feeling that you might as well, check it out! Produced by Charles Lauste video directed by easys reel

Hooch – [Warhol]

By Cole Bennett // 12 Aug 2019

Chicago native Warhol has been on a hot streak and he is continuing to provide the heat with his latest song, “Hooch”. Over the years, Warhol has proven that consistency is one of his biggest strengths, releasing music at an unprecedented pace and maintaining a loyal, diehard fanbase in the process while gaining new fans on the daily. On “Hooch”, his flows feel almost automatic, navigating the beat effortlessly with his signature grimy style. His menacing bars are amplified by producer Staccato’s ominous instrumental, adding an even harsher edge to Warhol’s already gloomy sound. This song is bound to appeal to fans who have been listening to Warhol for a minute and also serves as a quintessential introduction for new listeners. As he sits on the verge of next-level acclaim with an already big year behind him, Warhol does what he does best on this track and reminds us once again why he’s been a favorite artist of our’s for years. Listen to “Hooch” below!
