By Seamus Fay // 11 Dec 2018

Interview Magazine has been known to foster conversations between some truly iconic talents, and today, they’ve done their part once again as they join together Virgil Abloh and Thom Bettridge with the enigmatic, iconic artist, Young Thug. In their conversation, the three speak about Thug’s productivity when in the studio, being different from others, advice, their inspirations, their goals, Thug’s Elton John-sampling gem, “High”, and much more. It’s a rarity to learn more about Young Thug as he tends to stay low, but with this occasion, Thug gives one of his best interviews to date — not to mention it’s alongside two highly respected individuals in their respective lanes. That said, don’t miss out on this one — read the full interview here and listen to “High” at the link below in order to soundtrack the moment!    

Super – [Zack Villere]

By Seamus Fay // 11 Dec 2018

  Thanks, in part, to the lovable weirdness of his hit song, “Cool”, we’ve come to know Zack Villere as the resident oddball who you can’t help but root for. Today, he expresses this eccentric personality in the form of a brand new single by the name of “Super”. In the description of the video on YouTube, Villere tells listeners to “run around a city to this song” — and while this may seem like an odd instruction, it makes perfect sense with the colorful sonic direction that “Super” takes. It feels like the warm grasp of the sunset pictured on its cover art, and further, it embodies the free-spirited mindset that all of Villere’s music seems to take on. Don’t just take my word for it, though — check out “Super” at the link provided below!

By Seamus Fay // 11 Dec 2018

Between “Square Up” and Awful Swim, Awful Records’ own, Zack Fox and Father, have been all over the headlines in recent months. Today, gifting us with a banger just in time for the holidays, the two join forces for a brand new single entitled “Family Function”. Amidst a hard-nosed, trunk-rattling instrumental, this song is unapologetically eclectic in nature and highly addictive in sound. Fox and Father rattle off clever rhymes, one after another, and the chemistry they hold when on the mic is second to none. Also notable, while this may just be the start of Zack Fox’s transition into rap, it’s clear that he hasn’t lost his comedic roots, making for a hilarious addition to a fantastic song. “Family Function” is a must-listen, so be sure to check it out at the link provided below.

NYC artist Flee is no stranger to our pages here on Lyrical Lemonade, and today, on the momentous occasion of his birthday, the budding star makes his way back to LL with a brand new project entitled Happy Birthday 2 Flee. While Flee should be the one receiving gifts today, he decided to treat his fans instead, and the result is a fantastic project that will be sure to be thrown into heavy rotation as 2018 comes to end. That said, as was the case with many of his past efforts, Flee’s latest is his most high-definition to date, mastering the art of the melodic heater without ever breaking a sweat. Additionally, Happy Birthday 2 Flee boasts two stellar features from Cash Cobain and Cousin Stizz, both of which tap into Flee’s frequency and seamlessly complement his ever-so-smooth style. In case you forgot, this NYC representative knows how to make hits with a machine-like consistency, and his latest tape is proof. Stream Happy Birthday 2 Flee at the link provided below!

Guap (LaLaLa) – [Rico Nasty]

By Seamus Fay // 10 Dec 2018

Looking back on 2018, few artists saw as much growth as Rico Nasty. Simply by being her unapologetic self, punk-induced charisma and all, Nasty is taking over the spotlight right now, and we here at Lyrical Lemonade couldn’t be more excited about her ascent. Today, the sugar trap star hits our pages with a brand new song and video entitled “Guap (LaLaLa)”. Hard-nosed as ever, this offering might just be one of Nasty’s finest to date. Kenny Beats’ world-ending 808s are just as much striking as they are addictive, and Nasty’s gritty vocals fit atop the atomic production seamlessly. The visuals make sure to illustrate this just as well, using some truly insane hospital imagery to remind us just how wild Nasty’s creative vision is. That said, “Guap (LaLaLa)” is further proof that we have an undeniable star on our hands, so watch the new video below and stream the song here!

There is no better way to describe the music of Brooklyn native, Sebastian Mikael, than “full of life”. Whether soundtracking a high or a low, the budding talent is sure to place authenticity over everything, and as a result, every single one of his songs lights up an entirely new world of emotion that listeners can resonate with.

Just 6 tracks long, this album is an undiluted account of the rollercoaster of moods that one might feel in a certain period of time.

#Free400Cor – [Fleacoo]

By Seamus Fay // 10 Dec 2018

It’s always refreshing to hear artists who deviate from the norm and truly look to bring their own wave to the table. Today, exemplifying this, we present an artist by the name of Fleacoo with his brand new single, “#Free400Cor”. The reason that I bring this song up in the given context is due to Fleacoo’s eccentric flows, which choose to ride the beat in a way quite unlike anyone else I’ve heard in recent memory. Only adding fuel to the fire, the rising talent chooses a melodic, sing-songy delivery to top off his style, and the result is an anthemic single that is sure to get stuck in your head after just one listen. Produced by TrueBeatzz, “#Free400Cor” is a soundtrack for getting to the bag, so show some love and stream the new single at the link below! Fleacoo has a bright future ahead of him.

By Seamus Fay // 10 Dec 2018

Here to make his way onto our lemon-filled pages is an incredibly talented artist by the name of quami.xyz. Today, he unveils his brand new visuals for the heart-soaked offering, “Clementine”, and being that this is my first real introduction to his music, I must say that this budding act is about to be a star. Led by gorgeous, soulful cadences and cathartic lyricism, “Clementine” is the kind of song that we all have a soft spot for. It’s true to self and unapologetically emotional, picking itself up off the pavement and bringing honesty and confidence into the spotlight. Quami’s ability to paint masterpieces with his voice and words is second to none, and equally as impactful are the cinematic, love-led visuals for the song, as directed and edited by Justin Singer.
