College – [Shinobi]

The beauty of social media is that you can literally blow up or be found by anyone. I found Shinobi and his video for “College” when I was scrolling through my Twitter timeline. The crazy thing about it is the video snippet barely had any RT’s or likes. I’ve been spinning Shinobi’s record “College” on and off again for the past couple of weeks now. The visuals along with his rapping ability in “College” have gotten me hooked. What does it for me really is the grainy VHS scenes coupled in with the other clear and vivid shots that captivates Shinobi’s sound. The thing that’s really going to separate him from most artists is that Shinobi already has a personality. What really drew me to him was his name and the fact that on is Instagram he’s dressed in the Akasku robe from Naruto. Watch the visuals for Shinobi’s “College” after the break.

Till The Morning – [Jay Worthy] & [Shlohmo]

An artist who is constantly pushing the envelope by working with as many different talented producers as possible is Jay Worthy. His music has been well covered on Lyrical Lemonade but his most recent project might be one of the strongest, most creative to date. Already this year he has dropped an EP with Harry Fraud as well as another string of small projects with legends like The Alchemist, Cardo Got Wings, and Jake One. He recently dropped his latest collaboration with Shlohmo that is appropriately titled Till The Morning. A name that accurately reflects the work ethic Worthy possesses, he’ll continue hustling long after the sun has risen. Tapping into production from Shlohmo is something people might not be expecting from the Compton legend, but the pair blend together perfectly to make something that sounds different than any of their previous releases. Throughout this EP, Shlohmo “Mama Used to Say” is a great example of the west coast influenced production from Shlohmo elevating Worthy’s laidback delivery that he has become known for. “You Know” is one of the strongest records on the EP, Worthy sounds immaculate over a beat that centers around jazzy flute every single time. While each song on …

Lost in Time – [wifisfuneral] ft. [Coi Leray]

Despite the fact that not too long ago, wifisfuneral announced his retirement from music, he has been back with some new singles and has also been teasing an upcoming project entitled Pain. I’m not surprised that he couldn’t stay away because, for someone like wifi, it just seems like he needs music as a sort of therapy session or a way to get his emotions and thoughts off of his chest. Ever since this retirement announcement, however, it seems as if he decided to take another route musically and switch up his overall aesthetic to a much softer, more subdued style that is still just as passionate and emotional as ever, but just a bit less aggressive than his older offerings once were. Although I’m a massive fan of this new style, it might take some adjusting for his day one fans but I’m positive they’ll come around and support the Florida artist in the end when push comes to shove. Following the release of “End of Story” which came out a couple of weeks ago is another brand-new single entitled “Lost in Time”, which also features the talents of Coi Leray. Both of these titles seem to be somewhat …

Eternal – [Killval]

Today I am happy to share with you an artist that goes by the moniker of Killval, who is making his first appearance on Lyrical Lemonade with his brand new album titled “Eternal”. There is really no reason to not check out this project because it’s a very fast listen at only fifteen minutes in length and it featured a handful of standout tracks that I feel like nobody should sleep on. The Virginia native certainly has a solid tape on his hands, however, the standout record “So Long” has stepped into the forefront as it has gathered well over two and a half million play so far! I highly suggest that you stream this project in it’s entirety, but at the bare minimum, listen to the lead single!

Tell Me Why – [The Kid Laroi]

The story of The Kid Laroi has been an inspiring one up until this point in his life, he was homeless in Australia just a few years ago just trying to make his dream come true of being a successful rapper in America, and now here he is, more successful than he (probably) ever imagined. Laroi is a wide renown artist who for my money, is the most talented + youngest artist in the game, seeing as he is still just barely legal to drive a vehicle at sixteen years of age. Today, The Kid Laroi is back on our platform with his brand new music video for “Tell Me Why”. Any Laroi or Lyrical Lemonade fan definitely understands the unique bond that Cole + The Kid Laroi have, they have created some classic visuals together in the past, but this new one takes the cake in my opinion. The Kid Laroi has really become a consistent artist who produces catchy + addicting records over and over again, I believe that as he continues to progress as an artist, he is going to become a massive artist not only here in the states, but worldwide. The Kid Laroi & Cole did …

Ends – [Smokepurpp] ft. [Young Nudy]

I told myself that I needed to take a break from writing about Smokepurpp releases because I have been covering almost every single drop from him in the last couple of months, and he’s been gifting us with so much new content. Just as I said that he went and dropped a visual for one of my favorite songs on Florida Jit which features Young Nudy, and I just couldn’t help myself. Nudy is one of my favorite rappers coming out of Atlanta, and that’s high praise considering the sheer influx of artists that come out of that city. The song, of course, is called “Ends” and I have made it a priority to listen to every time I revisit parts of the album, which has been occurring quite frequently recently. The song itself begins with eerie, unsettling violin-sounding strings before Ronny J adds in his trademark thunderous 808s and rattling hats that Smokepurpp feels all too familiar with at this point in his career after working with Ronny for so long. When Purpp delivers the hook, he offers a more relaxed, calmed version of himself that eventually couples with Nudy’s demeanor as well, but that comes later on. Prior …

movinglikeazombie – [dante red]

Within the past recent weeks, I have been seeing a huge increase in the type of wildly talented artists that seem to emerge out of nowhere on SoundCloud. Today we are covering an artist whose career is barely even two weeks old and already has seemingly caught fire at the same rate as a molotov cocktail. The artist’s name is dante red and has quickly risen to prominence alongside his Deer Park Knights collective that have been shrouded in mystery ever since their careers began. The crew hails from a suburb of Houston, TX and dante has quickly become the artist to catch the most attention out of DPK with his recent songs each gaining traction almost immediately. As it stands right now, dante red is 3 for 3. With the first song he released “movinglikeazombie” outperforming the rest, it is clear that his music has already started to win over fans even though he was basically unknown as of June. What makes dante stand out so much is his distorted melodies that blend perfectly with lyrics that will make you relisten over and over to catch each detail. His delivery is incredibly smooth even though he is delivering his …

Ready to Eat – [SahBabii]

There has been so much great music that has released in the last couple of weeks which makes it tough to truly give everything its own time in the spotlight. SahBabii’s latest album Barnacles is one of those projects for me personally, and although I’ve given it a listen all the way through only a couple of times, I’m definitely a fan and need to revisit it many more times. I mean, I feel like I’ve been writing about him a lot recently considering he’s dropping a ton of music videos, and these are just things I have to pay attention to because of how unique and out of the box they are, quite like the Atlanta artist himself. “Ready to Eat”, the project’s second song, is the latest track to receive a music video, and I was super excited to come across this on social media because it was one of those things where I just had to stop what I was doing and watch. As for the song itself, the beat is comprised of spacey, somewhat dazed synths coupled with simple, crisp hats and resounding 808s for a sound that strays away from a lot of the more …

Life’s A Mess – [Juice WRLD] x [Halsey]

Anybody who is in tune with Lyrical Lemonade knows that Juice WRLD has always + will always hold a place near and dear to all of our hearts, so today was special when his camp announced that his posthumous album, Legends Never Die, will be dropping later this week. The cover art that they released with that announcement is absolutely amazing to say the bare minimum, but not only did they do all of that for us fans, but they also put out the first single titled “Life’s A Mess” featuring Halsey. This song is heart-tugging for any Juice WRLD fan to listen to, it’s a beautiful record that has a phenomenal melody to it, and is driven by arguably the greatest instrumental that I have heard all year. I was very impressed to hear just how well that Juice WRLD and Halsey complimented each other on this one, if this song is a taste of what we will be receiving on his album in just a few days, then we are in for something monumental. Stream this brand new record below.

Hallucinogen (Trippin’)-[Ncognita]

The individual who is making it onto our pages right now might be one of the most dynamic artists that I’ve ever gotten the chance to write about. When you experience true and raw talent, it is impossible to shake it. Think back to the first time you heard a legend. There was not a doubt in your mind that you were witnessing something special; something that might only come around once in a lifetime. When you stumble upon those types of artists early, it’s of the utmost importance to take immediate notice. Today, it is my honor to highlight a future star in the making. Someone who is not only going to leave a mark in her genre, but in music altogether. Ncognita is the rapper we’ve all been waiting for. In a brief conversation last week, one of my colleagues asked me if I’m a fan of Hip-Hop and I proceeded to tell him that “I’m a fan of good Hip-Hop.” If you’re wondering what constitutes as good hip-hop, look no further than this article. I came across the stellar talent of Ncognita when her first song to hit streaming services came out. The offering, titled, “Clap Clap” …
