Bad News – [909memphis]

By Danny Adams // 27 Nov 2021

There are numerous artists in the underground music scene that I think deserve so much more credit than they receive, but their grind is always notable and it’s going to pay off one day or another. When I first dove into this wild and unpredictable underground arena, 909memphis was always someone who I found myself gravitating towards because he had one of the most unique voices I had ever heard, and he knew just how to utilize it in order to bring out the best in himself and his music. At first, I would compare him to Young Thug because of the way he would manipulate his voice and his deliveries, but as I thought about it more, I realized that he was in a lane of his own and deserved so much more respect than is given when comparing him to someone else because he truly is one of a kind. Most recently, I got extremely excited because he not only dropped a brand-new track entitled “Bad News”, but he also announced the release of his upcoming project Whatever It Takes which will gift us with 6 new tracks that I’m overly confident will just contribute to his storied …

Options – [Lil Eazzyy]

By Danny Adams // 26 Nov 2021

Every day, it seems like there’s a new superstar coming up out of Chicago and putting on for our city, and it makes me so proud to call this place my home. While superstars like Juice WRLD, Lil Durk, G Herbo, Chief Keef, and Lil Bibby are household names and world renown, there are so many other talents making their claim for the throne known, and Lil Eazzyy is one of the most prominent names in the entire city. Obviously, his mixtape Underrated which dropped last year put him on the map and it’s still a project I revisit regularly because it has longevity and is full of hits, but I’m sure his fans don’t need to hear that from me in order to know that it’s true. When he dropped Rookie of the Year earlier this year, I feel like it flew under the radar way more than it should have and it didn’t quite add to his legacy as an artist the way it was meant to, but nonetheless, I think it’s a very solid album and something that deserves so much more love than it received. Nevertheless, Eazzyy is always working, and even though he might’ve been …

For the Week – [Jaah SLT]

By Danny Adams // 26 Nov 2021

Although I haven’t heard too much of Jaah SLT’s recent music, in all honesty, he is someone I’ve been following along with for quite some time now. He is definitely one of the most unique talents in the rap scene, giving us a plethora of different styles that only expand his sonic repertoire tremendously, yet I still think that he’s grossly underrated and deserves so much more credit. Even though I have been a fan for a good amount of time, I honestly had no idea that one of my good homies actually helps manage him, so when he texted me and told me to check out his latest song “For The Week” as well as the LKS Visuals-directed music video, I had no choice but to listen up, and I’m sure glad I did. In the instrumental for this hit, there are some momentous, dominating string instruments that combine with crisp percussion and precise, thumping drums that come together wonderfully in order to give Jaah some more time to shine on the microphone. When he comes in, his delivery is lighthearted and playful even though his wordplay is clever and captivating, without a doubt. He doesn’t seem to truly …

Go – [$NOT]

By Danny Adams // 24 Nov 2021

I feel like with every single new release from $NOT, I find myself consistently enjoying him more and more. I’m just overwhelmed at the fact that he’s seriously one of the most dexterous, versatile artists in the entire music industry, and while way too many people sleep on him, in my personal opinion, his real fans know exactly what kind of skill he brings to the table. This past weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing him live for the second time (my first time being during his insane set at the Summer Smash), and it’s safe to say that his live shows don’t disappoint whatsoever. He had the crowd jumping from the front to the back, getting each and every fan there into every song he performed before even jumping into the crowd and getting a first-hand look at the chaos that was going down in this hoard of people. He also performed a few unreleased songs that got me excited for what is to come, and even though I typically don’t love when artists perform unreleased songs because it can be hard to get into them live without knowing the words or the rhythm, I made an exception …

04 – [redveil]

By Brandon Washington // 24 Nov 2021

Prince George’s County, Maryland based artist redveil returns to Lyrical Lemonade with a brand new banger titled “04.” Accompanied with a Tyler Shuler directed music video, the creative inspiration thematically pays homage to some iconic 2004 moments such as Kanye West’s “All Falls Down.” Moreover, the reoccurring VHS camcorder adds a nostalgic feel visually, while sonically the soulful, sample-filled production smoothly contrasts with Redveil’s modern arsenal of flows. At just seventeen years of age, redeveil has already made a name for himself, which is all the more impressive considering he hasn’t reached his peak yet! Watch the official music video for “04” below!  

prick – [glaive]

By Danny Adams // 23 Nov 2021

I know some people who aren’t familiar with glaive might be getting sick of all the articles I write about him, but until they actually check out his music and tell me it’s not for them, I’m going to continue to write about his releases. In fact, even if they did tell me that they don’t like glaive, I’m still going to write about him because they’re wrong, and glaive is awesome, and that’s an unbiased opinion in my eyes. Even though he’s so young, he has put out some of the most innovative, incredible music in the industry, and he never slows down for even a second, constantly blessing fans with new releases on a regular basis. I honestly don’t know how he juggles going to high school full time with a music career as well as a nationwide tour that I believe just wrapped up, but that makes me want to give him even more props for his unmatched work ethic because most other artists simply couldn’t keep up with him. While he’s still riding high off of the success that then i’ll be happy and  all dogs go to heaven, he’s clearly not going to slow down …

NEPTUNE VS. INDUSTRY – [Lucki] & [F1lthy]

By Danny Adams // 23 Nov 2021

When an artist independently makes a name for themselves as they rise through the ranks of the music industry, that’s always obviously prominent. It’s not easy to lift off and rise up above certain levels, but when a talent can do this, it means that there’s seriously something special within them, and that can’t go unnoticed. At the same time, there are some duos throughout the music scene that work just so well together, and it might be harder to make it big in a group depending on who you ask, but when a tag team finally receives the accolades they deserve, it’s that much more special, in my opinion. Although Lucki and F1lthy aren’t technically in a group or anything of that nature, every time they team up it seems like they flip the music world on its head, and they have yet to release anything that could be considered even close to a miss. That’s why, as soon as I found out that these two hitmakers were finally teaming up for a full collaborative project entitled WAKEUPLUCKI that is set to drop within the coming weeks, I got way more excited than I’d like to admit as a …

Sweet Dreams, Darling – [Damien Styles]

By Danny Adams // 23 Nov 2021

With the fact that I’m always on the hunt for promising up-and-coming acts, I try my best to tune into as many artists as I can, especially the ones that my friends send me. Some might be better than others, but either way, I can often see the promise in one’s music and their skills, so I always have to remind myself that this is just the beginning for most of them, and their talents are only going to grow if they surround themselves with the right people who know how to take them from a regular musician to an all-out superstar. One person I was put onto a few months back goes by the name of Damien Styles, and while I’ve written about him in the past, I just simply can’t get enough. At first, I was captivated by his music because he almost had a vibe similar to Lil Peep, Lil Tracy, or some of the other punk/emo-inspired musicians that have graced a microphone, but there was something different about him that I couldn’t quite pinpoint. After doing some thinking, I feel like the main differentiator is his demeanor, because even if he gets into dark, depressing topics …
