Never Left – [Lil Tecca]

By Danny Adams // 7 May 2021

When thinking of the new generation of music filled with new faces and names constantly popping up left and right, Lil Tecca has seemed to stand the test of time. Obviously, it has only been a couple of years since he took the music scene by storm and at such a young age, I don’t know if anyone truly expected him to be able to keep up with the massive amounts of hype he first created for himself, but it’s clear that he hasn’t even had a second thought about any sort of pressure, and he continues to fill the gigantic footsteps he has in place for himself. As we gear up for the release of his highly anticipated second mixtape, We Love You Tecca, he has been working with the hitmakers over at Internet Money and dropping a couple of singles to garner even more excitement around the project, so expectations couldn’t be any higher. Most recently, he dropped his song “Never Left” which is an absolute banger in every sense of the word, and he kept the momentum going by teaming up with Declan Kyle to shoot an unbelievable music video for this hit. Utilizing a purple hue …

Naples-[Brevin Kim]

By Sam Morrison // 7 May 2021

Brevin Kim never ceases to impress the team at Lyrical Lemonade, which is why we’ll always take the time to roll out the red carpet for these two brothers who are absolutely crushing it right now. The Massachusetts natives have been on the scene since 2015, but it truly feels like they’re just getting started as their music is beaming with an energy that is nothing less than exciting. Today, the boys make a return to our pages for the release of their brand new song called, “Naples”, a short yet satisfying offering that is bound to be on repeat for you all weekend. Brevin Kim’s trademark production and eclectic style shine through this track in a way that will make you come back for more and more. From start to finish, this one will grab you and take you on a ride that doesn’t let up until its culmination. If I listed off everything I loved about Brevin Kim, we’d be here all day, but this song is truly an introspective piece that will give you a better look at what makes this talented duo so special. I’ve attached the song down below, so make sure you give this …

HELLSING – [ITSOKTOCRY]

By Danny Adams // 7 May 2021

If there’s one artist in the. Underground that I think has been consistently making some of the best music in the entire world for years and years, it has to be ITSOKTOCRY. The Denver native has not only created an insane legacy by himself, but he has aligned himself with such a dexterous group of other artists that it seems like there’s nothing he can’t do if he puts his mind to it. I legitimately never get even remotely tired of hearing any of his songs, and this is mainly due to the fact that his voice is so pliable that he can make any sound he wants, reminding me of an almost more versatile Young Thug which is as high as my praise can get. Although there has been a brief hiatus since he dropped new music considering he was putting in work on the music video front to continue to promote his unbelievable project Poshboy 2, he decided to bring that break to an end with the release of his latest record “HELLSING”, and it’s even better than I could have ever anticipated. Produced by neet.ro and 1177, our ears are met with some mischievous, Dracula-like synths that …

Love Hurts Feelings – [7ru7h]

By Danny Adams // 7 May 2021

Ever since I found out about Huntington, West Virginia native 7ru7h a few months ago, I have heard nothing but rave reviews from fans all over the world. Most recently, when I saw his latest release “Love Hurts Feelings” pretty much going viral, I had no choice but to tune in. Opening up, you hear the strums of a very emotive guitar melody that 7ru7h ends up introducing his vocals on, starting out with a very passionate, almost melancholic delivery that is full of pain and heartache. Although his voice is powerful and as honest as ever, a deep, pungent 808 enters into the scene about halfway through, elevating the bounce as well as the energy of the instrumental which then seems to rub off on the singer, ultimately adding up to another unbelievable offering from the rising star. Considering he predicted this track to be a hit from the jump, he also teamed up with T Aubrey who shot a miniature movie for this record, and the results are simplistic yet complementary in all the right ways to bring this offering to new heights. As it opens up, he is sitting down in a cemetery with his back to …

I Know Your Ways – [Night Lovell]

By Brandon Washington // 7 May 2021

Ottawa, Canada native Night Lovell returns to Lyrical Lemonade with an absolute banger of a track entitled “I Know Your Ways.” The song is off his new album Just Say You Don’t Care, and in my opinion it’s undeniably the standout record off the project. With an absurd amount of bass, the contrasting calm melody creates a vampiric atmosphere which Lovell effortlessly glides over. Despite its lighter feel, the production truly couldn’t be more fitting for the artist’s monotone vocals, as it provides a unique spin compared to his typical sound palette. Revealing that he’s unintentionally turning into a demon, Night Lovell’s flow contains signature qualities of menacing lyrics coupled with existential insight. “I Know Your Ways” is such an impressive standalone track that I pressed repeat several times over before finally allowing the next song to play. Check out the song below and be sure to listen to Night Lovell’s new album Just Say You Don’t Care! 

Ski (Remix) – [DC the Don]

By Danny Adams // 6 May 2021

Just a few weeks ago Young Thug’s 300 entertainment imprint Young Stoner Life dropped off their highly anticipated collaborative album entitled Slime Language 2. With some absolutely massive features and some even more unbelievable verses from the label’s stand-out stars, it’s hard to choose a number one highlight, however, it’s pretty clear that with Thugger’s “Ski” challenge dance going viral, that might just be able to take the cake. While all of these other rappers, artists, and fans are making videos dancing along to the song in their own unique and creative ways, LA by way of Milwaukee artist DC the Don decided to kick things up a notch and create an entire remix of the record, completely outdoing anyone else’s efforts thus far. Although his sound is much more rock/punk-like than the original song, it adds an awesome differentiation to the track while DC also shows off his unbelievable musical skills. Let’s just say, just when you thought the song was being overplayed due to the fact that you saw it and heard it everywhere you looked, DC put such a spin on it that it almost sounds like an entirely new record, and that’s something I’m beyond grateful …

Walk In – [Pouya] & [Lu Baby]

By Danny Adams // 6 May 2021

Out of all the originators of a new wave of music that many might call SoundCloud rap, I have to say that Pouya was one of the very first trendsetters. While it seems like since he first began his music career, some other artists who were influenced by him have taken their own direction and almost created a negative stigma based around that term due to a lack of substance or creativity, Pouya has never given in and has consistently created some of the most diverse and incredible music in the entire rap genre, leading him to be one of my all-time favorite underground legends. Most recently, the underground underdog teamed up with Lu Baby, a rising artist who I honestly know nothing about and struggled to find information on him after searching on Google, but after this big moment in the spotlight, fans are going to start flocking in his direction immediately. “Walk In” is the name of the record they dropped, and it was produced by both Rocci and Maika Maile who utilized some thick snare drums, rattling percussion, and a smooth melody that sounds almost like they sampled “Ms. Jackson” by Outkast, putting their own spin on …

ST LGND 94 – [Jay Worthy & St. Ides]

By Brodie Harvey // 6 May 2021

There are very few artists out that have put in the work like the living legend that is Jay Worthy. The independent hustler has never let something like a pandemic slow down his growth, with real street rap seeming to be as popular as ever Worthy is at a very interesting turning point in his career. He has an established reputation as your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper and it’s well earned. P Worthy is a timeless artist, he has stayed true to himself and consistently brings a different level of storytelling to a new generation that often lacks to look back further than a decade when it comes to music that stands out. His sound is west coast rap at its finest, laidback music that hits best in a convertible playing as loud as possible. He recently dropped a mixtape in partnership with an iconic brand that further cements himself as one of the biggest hustlers in independent music. This is a must-listen for any reader’s craving the gritty nature of ’90s rap and Where Worthy excels most is as a storyteller though, both in his lyrics and in conversation. He’s a true student of the game, picking up knowledge …
