cheesy – [bbno$] & []

By Brodie Harvey // 24 May 2019

It’s understood at this point that bbno$ is not playing around.  Over the past few months, we have covered several of his stellar releases but today he has dropped one of his most exciting singles to date. On his latest release, he teamed up with Lyrical Lemonade icon Warhol who has been at the top of his game lately, killing any and every song he’s on. With both artists firing on all cylinders, this track is a perfect example of the versatility each emcee possesses. The production provided by Dilip is chaotic and features a deep bass line that would shake the windows in any house at the right volume. Warhol and bbno$ have been in the public eye for some time now but both of them have come into their own as of late and the music they’ve been pumping out reflects it. This collaboration has me incredibly excited to see who else bbno$ has been cooking up with, nothing would surprise me at this point. You can find “cheesy” on all platforms here!

Shit – [My Favorite Color]

By Seamus Fay // 24 May 2019

Amidst a plethora of blockbuster rap albums/songs that came out today, one artist who has still managed to capture my attention with a banger of his own goes by the name of My Favorite Color. Hailing from Pittsburgh, this budding talent may have dropped his new single, “Shit,” on a day scattered with releases from some of the biggest names out, but nevertheless, he gives listeners a variety of reasons why they should be paying attention, even during a time with so much else to listen to. For starters, the fierce, bass-booming nature of “Shit” makes it easy to latch onto from the start, but even so, My Favorite Color makes sure not to rely on the production to pull all of the weight. Rather, the budding artist sets loose a rambunctious set of deliveries, using his endless energy and head-turning charisma to attract listeners and keep them entertained throughout. Naturally, the result is a one-two punch of a song and a sure favorite for live performances and mosh pits in the near future. With this, “Shit” is a short, to-the-point offering, and as such, it holds the replay value to keep all eyes on My Favorite Color for several …

Smile – [Asaiah Ziv]

By Sam Morrison // 23 May 2019

Everyone knows the common phrase, “real recognize real”. In fact, many people say it without truly understanding what it takes to be “real”. Realness stems from a genuine authenticity that is not influenced by fads or surroundings. It’s expressing the true you no matter what anyone may have to say about it. In my opinion, Asaiah Ziv is one of the realest artists out right now. Every time I turn on one of his songs, it is impossible not to feel the emotional energy he creates through lyrical substance and story telling. Ziv is working at a level that not many artists are working at right now; and for that reason alone, many people should take notice if they already haven’t. Yesterday, the rising start dropped a brand new offering entitled, “Smile”. From the moment you turn this new track on, you’ll instantly become hooked. The fire guitar inclusion paired with the simple yet powerful production sets the tone for Asaiah to move around the beat in way that creates the perfect atmosphere. Throughout the verses, Ziv urges listeners to Smile despite their circumstances, which is just another way that he adds that extra level of emotion and depth. This …

All Day – [Maka] ft. [Connis]

By Seamus Fay // 23 May 2019

Some things in life just go together — it’s an innate thing. For example, peanut butter and jelly, fish and chips, even knives and forks; Massachusetts artist Maka and the warm weather is a perfect example of one of these combinations. Whenever the sun comes out, the temperatures rise, and the days start to get a little longer, Maka unloads the slew of music that he’s been building up throughout the colder months, and the result is an unbelievable supply of music for listeners to feast on all throughout the spring and summer. Today, Maka is back to continue on this hot streak with one of my favorite songs of his to date, “All Day” featuring Connis. Produced by Rolexdaytona, “All Day” is a perfect song for the summer due, in part, to the galvanizing swirl of infectious melodies that act its foundation. Washing over these melodies is a splash of eccentric drumlines, and the final, most essential touch here is the addition of the vocals, demonstrating an intensely entertaining performance from both Maka and Connis. Each of the two artists go back and forth in excitement, and throughout the entire duration of the song, fans receive a notably animated example of …

Wgoimh – [Garrett Merk]

By Seamus Fay // 23 May 2019

Music, in its purest form, is simply a reflection of the thoughts swirling around inside an artist’s head. Especially in today’s age of inauthenticity, whenever an artist pours their hearts out on the mic, it’s worthy of profound appreciation both from a listener’s and an artist’s standpoint, and here to bring this idea to life is Massachusetts-bred artist Garrett Merk — one of my personal favorites out of the state and a frequent flyer here at Lyrical Lemonade. Today, Merk hits our pages with a thoughtful new offering, “Wgoimh.” Paired with a cinematic set of visuals during which he gets a lip tattoo, reflects in the comfort of a lake, and even shaves his long locks in exchange for a bald head, this video clearly displays Merk’s rejuvenated mindset. One scene after another, he translates the reflective pain of his lyrics into smoothly-cut scenes, and as a result, “Wgoimh” allows listeners to resonate with the way that Merk’s life has changed over the years, from drugs to his artistic identity, his car, his groupies, and more. For better or for worse, the budding talent realizes that things aren’t quite like they used to be, leading him into one of his …

Smacked! – [Kiraly Payne]

By Elliot Montanez // 22 May 2019

Kiraly Payne is something like a OG on our platform, he has been apart of the Lyrical Lemonade community from the damn near start, and this evening he is back with his beautiful new track titled “Smacked”! A couple of years ago I brought Kiraly through the office for a Q&A, and when we linked up he introduced me to another talented young individual by the name of Austen Nobles who has done well for himself since, and he handled the soothing production this this track provided. This joint appears as if it will be apart of his upcoming EP titled Protect My Soul that is set to drop later this year, so be on the look out for that. Hearing the start of this track was interesting because of the way Kiraly messed around with his vocals, I haven’t heard him rap like this before, but I definitely liked what the final outcome was. Stream this brand new offering below!

couldn’t tell you (even if i tried to) – [no room no sweetener]

By Seamus Fay // 22 May 2019

The warmer days, longer nights, and sunnier afternoons of the summer deserve just the right music to match the occasion. Needless to say, I’ve been digging through SoundCloud over the past few weeks looking for the right songs to add to my playlist, and today, I believe I’ve found a worthy addition. Here to bless our pages with the song “couldn’t tell you (even if i tried to),” an artist by the name of no room no sweeter has blessed us with the perfect soundtracks to late, reflective nights. Supported by a bed of lush instrumentation and dreamy melodies, “couldn’t tell you (even if i tried to)” works mainly due to the world of sound it’s able to cultivate. The vocals gently patter against the smooth production, and creating a sound that’s quite easy to get lost in, each element of the song blends into one, hypnotic mixture. Decadent as can be, “couldn’t tell you (even if i tried to)” is an easy favorite with this in mind, so I would definitely recommend giving this one a listen for anyone who is trying to add to their summer playlist, like myself. I don’t know much about no room no sweetener, …

Take Me Home – [Raynadayz]

By Seamus Fay // 22 May 2019

Raynadayz has been on my radar for quite some time now, and in all honesty, it always seems to brighten the week when I see a new release from the promising young artist. Not only is Raynadayz unbelievably consistent, but every single song seems to push the value of the art forward simply by maintaining a true-to-self output all the way through. With this, Raynadayz is back to highlight these strengths and more with an unbelievable new effort, “Take Me Home.” Galloping right along a catchy, simplistic drum beat and an atmospheric background of melodies, this song gives the Sacramento native the opportunity to let some thoughts loose and offer up one of her most impressive vocal runs to date. “Take Me Home” resonates with vivid emotion and passionate songwriting, but the true magic of the song is found in the heartful texture of Raynadayz’ voice. Personally, I feel as though it’s easy to make a case for the potential behind this incredibly bright young talent, but in truth, there’s no convincing to be done when Raynadayz is releasing songs as polished and excellent as “Take Me Home.” Check this one out below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Lyrical Lemonade Presents: The Shordie Shordie Q&A

As I rode in the car with my cameraman on the way to Atlanta I started to prep myself for this interview. Naturally, I like to be over prepared when I’m talking with someone so I’m able to dive into an in-depth conversation with the person. As I’m gazing off into the distance my cameraman…
