This music video will be in the conversation for video of the year when 2019 is said and done, I know that’s an extremely bold statement but I don’t think that is an exaggeration in the least bit.

No Pencil – [Warhol.SS]

By Elliot Montanez // 17 Jan 2019

Chicago super star Warhol.SS has been putting out some of the best music of his young career lately, and today he is complimenting that with one of his best visuals yet for “No Pencil”. He joined forces with fellow Chicagoan Jake Osmun, and if you know anything about these two creatives together then you know this one was going to be good, and sure enough they came through with a fantastic final product. Warhol had a huge year in 2018 but I think he will have a lot more in store for his growing fan base in 2019, but for now watch this brand new visual below!

Real Ties – [Lil Skies]

By Elliot Montanez // 17 Jan 2019

Lyrical Lemonade favorite Lil Skies had a better year in 2018 than 99% of artists, and today he is back with his first release of the new year with his brand new offering titled “Real Ties”. The growth of Lil Skies as an artist has been tremendous to watch to say the least, he has not only made a name in the music industry but he set himself up for longevity that a majority of his competition will never see. It’s one thing to become a massive artist but the way that Skies carries himself as a human is truly admirable, he speaks to everyone with respect & puts on for his city, which is why he is an idol to hundreds of thousands of kids around the world.

Like You – [Asiahn]

By Chuck Ramos // 17 Jan 2019

Asiahn has released the first visual from her newly released album, Love Trains 2. The new video for her song, “Like You” follows Asiahn around through a neon-lit night out on the town surrounded by friends and possible love interests. The soulful R&B singer-songwriter delivers on her cinematic performance captivating us from a vocal and visual standpoint. The new video is a clever combination of both cinematic and homemade shots. Interchanging between two different forms of shots, Asiahn is able to draw parallels between the video and her career.

Bake Freestyle – [Young M.A.]

By Chuck Ramos // 17 Jan 2019

Young M.A. sets the tone for 2019 with her new “Bake” freestyle. Coming through with a lethal set of bars, Young M.A. delivers a fiery set of verses over the classic Clipse “Grindin” beat. The freestyle playfully jumps between shots of M.A. rapping directly to the camera and transposed effects that reference lines in the freestyle. Clearly, Young M.A. has been waiting and plotting for her takeover of 2019 after releasing a series of singles and jaw-dropping features during the majority of last year. The year has only just begun and we are already overly anxious to see what Young M.A. has in the vault for us. Keep watching the moves M.A. is making and look out for other visuals and possible singles from the gifted Brooklyn MC. Watch the new freestyle from Young M.A. below and tell us how your rating the freestyle in the comment section!

Walker Texas Ranger – [DaBaby]

By Seamus Fay // 16 Jan 2019

If there’s one artist we recommend looking out for in 2019, it has to be DaBaby. From the sprinkles of high-energy adlibs to the highly-quotable bars that best define his music, Baby is a hitmaker at heart, and today, he’s here to show this off with the visuals for the trunk-rattling offering, “Walker Texas Ranger”. Set to a Western theme in light of the title, the true magic of this release doesn’t only reside in the addictiveness of the music itself. Just as important is the fact that DaBaby can maintain his effortless cool while wearing a cowboy hat, and further so, the fact that “Walker Texas Ranger”, as off-the-wall as it gets, fits perfectly as a highlight in the budding star’s current catalog. That said, DaBaby is ready to takeover in the new year, so be sure not to sleep and check out his recently-released music video at the link below!

Opportunity – [JAMS TFC]

By Elliot Montanez // 16 Jan 2019

JAMS The Flava Child first made his debut on our platform a couple of months ago a few days after I saw him perform live in Chicago, and today he is making his way back with his brand new music video for “Opportunity”. Although he’s a Chicago artist he took a trip out to Los Angeles to shoot this visual with Lost TV, and man they truly outdid them self with this stunning video. The shots that they were able to capture were truly beautiful, it complimented the soulful and heartfelt record from Jams, making for an all in all great final product. Watch this brand new music video below and if you enjoy it be sure to give Jams a follow on Twitter here!

Better Forever – [Butch Dawson] ft. [Hemlock Ernst]

By Lucas Garrison // 16 Jan 2019

Baltimore emcee, Butch Dawson has been absolutely killing it with the visuals for his 2018 project, Swamp Boy, and his latest flick might be the best yet. One of the most interesting tracks off the album, “Better Forever” takes a key from the project’s title with a murky atmosphere, paced by the marauding strings and Dawson’s lurking flow. With such a distinct feel, “Better Forever” begs for a visual component, and, quite literally filmed in a foggy swamp, the video delivers.  As if “Better Forever” didn’t have enough mystique already, Dawson is joined by Hemlock Ernst, the rapping alter-ego of Future Island’s frontman Samuel T. Herring, who is one of the most interesting live performers you will find. Apparently can rap a little bit too and he definitely holds his own here. Dawson is definitely a name you are going to want to get to know, so go check out Swamp Boy if you dig this one. Watch here!

LL Presents: The Wemmymo Q&A

If you recall, when we released our third annual Top 50 Chicago Projects of the year list a couple of weeks back, there was a newcomer featured by the name of Wemmymo, who released a stellar new project titled Bittersweet in 2018. Admittedly, I was a couple months late to hearing Wemmy's project after its…
