Lights Off – [Tay Keith] ft. [Gunna] & [Lil Durk]

Few producers have gotten to the superstar status that Tay Keith has ascended to, but don’t think that it was an easy road for the Memphis beatsmith. He worked for years on his sound, making his way up the ladder of the music industry to the point that he’s at right now, and when looking at his accolades, there is nothing you can do but applaud his achievements. After working with everyone from Lil Baby to Miley Cyrus and collecting more than 25 RIAA-certified plaques for songs ranging from Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” to Polo G’s “Go Stupid”, Tay Keith is nothing short of a bona fide superstar, and that means that every single song he touches is an absolutely essential listen without a doubt. In order to celebrate his new solo career in a big way, Keith recruited Gunna and Lil Durk for his latest hit “Lights Off”, and if what they say is true about history repeating itself, this song is going to top charts, receive plaques, and be played all the time everywhere in the world. In the instrumental, he includes a very serene, smooth melody that collides with crashing percussion and punchy drums, giving the two …

Behind The Scenes Of Lil Durk’s “What Happened To Virgil” Music Video

Last night we released the brand new music video for “What Happened To Virgil” by Lil Durk + Gunna, and it’s an instant classic! The video production team did their thing with this one, it’s one of my personal favorite music videos that we here at LL have ever produced. Just a few minutes ago, we dropped the behind-the-scenes footage from the day on set on our Lyrical Lemonade 2 YouTube channel, and it provides some great insight as to how the visual came together. This is great content for any LL or Lil Durk fan, check it out below, and be sure to subscribe to the LL2 channel on YouTube!

Black Iverson – [Guapdad 4000]

If you’re not already familiar with COLORSxSTUDIOS’ series of live performances, you seriously have some catching up to do. For the past few years, they have brought in so many different artists, ranging from superstars like Gunna, Freddie Gibbs, and JID to more local emcees with immense talent such as Dreamer Isioma and Femdot. What I love about this series is that it showcases the artists in such a barebone yet equally vibrant, captivating manner, and these spitters are able to showcase their music in a way unlike ever before. Most recently, they invited Guapdad 4000 onto the series, and although his performance of his new single “Black Iverson” was immaculate, I also found out that this was part of the media company’s collaboration with the NBA 2K franchise, making this release even more incredible. Produced by Kyle S. Fischer, the instrumental is lighthearted and easygoing with hints of mischief and innocent trouble, setting the perfect base for Guapdad’s typically calm, cool, and collected flows. His delivery is very reminiscent of the sound we have all come to know and love as he just lets the tempo carry his words without trying to speed up his lines too quickly or …

Get Refreshed: Blogger’s Choice Vol.1

“Get Refreshed” is a monthly column by Billy Bugara covering all things digital in the music world. Refresh yourself here. I Don’t Have The Stamina For This Blogging Shit Billy Bugara Hi. I’m back, and this time I brought my friends. So… I feel like this column could use a lot less Me every once in a while. I don’t treat blogging like a sport; I barely even blog at all. But even still, I know damn well that blogging isn’t really where I strive compared to others, and that’s okay! I have to write research papers every day… we are simply not the same. In all seriousness, I do want to explain what’s going on here before we jump into things. I am a person of platforming, a platforming person, if you will (it is my job for SoundCloud, after all). I just really enjoy turning the spotlight towards those who deserve it most. Most of the time – all of the time, really – I’m featuring musicians. But what about turning this spotlight towards other people who like to… spotlight musicians as well? Is this really ever done? Not often! Can it be done? Should it be done? Yes and yes! …

T-Shyne New Project ‘CONFETTI NIGHTS’ Out Now

Confetti Nights call for a celebration. That is exactly what Young Stoner Life signee T-Shyne’s new project calls for. A celebration of his journey thus far as an artist. Confetti Nights 15-track list includes features from Young Thug, Gunna, Meek Mill, Nav, JID, NAV,6lack, Swae Lee, Dougie F, and Westway. This album has generated a lot of buzz surrounding two-time NBA championship winner, Kevin Durant being listed as an executive producer on the project.  “Confetti Nights is like a celebration of sorts. The basketball player who just made it to the league, following him on his journey from his rookie year to his first championship win. As life goes, most people don’t start at the top,” T-Shyne explained. “But no matter your status or position, we’re all on a journey to improve some aspects of ourselves. This has been a very personal project for me. I tapped into a new vulnerability, sharing parts of my life I’ve never shared before. Stories I’ve never told. I truly believe others will be able to connect to this project more than any other project I’ve released.” The Bronx rapper’s unique style, vivid lyrical caliber, and determination to bring out different styles and showcase …

Hear Me Clearly – [Nigo] & [Pusha T]

I think it isn’t a stretch by any means to mention exactly how massive Nigo is as a musician, but also as an influence on others. He is one of the people that you can point to and credit for paving a way for artists today to bring inventive sounds to the forefront of their music, and his legendary status is never going to waiver, and it clearly hasn’t even in a couple of decades without really making music. His album I Know NIGO! was as highly anticipated as it can get, and I think it is beyond clear that he has possibly some of the most pull out of anyone in the music industry. This is abundantly obvious even just looking at his album’s tracklist because when you see names like A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, Pharrell, Gunna, Kid Cudi, Tyler, the Creator, and even the late great Pop Smoke, amongst countless others, all side by side on the same project. So, if this isn’t an absolute spectacle and a half in your mind, then I think you need to pay the doctor a visit ASAP. Although it only lasts about 32 minutes long, it is definitely going to go …

Crash Out – [Fastmoney Ant]

I feel like not that much. time has passed since I first found out about Chicago’s very own Fastmoney Ant, but I guess he makes moves quickly, and when he makes a statement, you better believe that you’re going to hear about it at some point or another. Since his debut singles “Hawk Em” and “King of Englewood”, the 19-year-old rising talent has received massive co-signs from artists like Gunna and EST Gee as well as fellow Chicago icons like G Herbo and Calboy, just to name a few. I knew that his potential was uncapped and he was going to do some massive things in the music industry, but I guess what I didn’t realize while listening to those couple of songs was just how quickly he’d make a splash or how loud he would be this early on, so exciting is an understatement if you ask me.  After receiving tons of love from artists, media platforms, and most importantly fans, it was only right that he dropped another hit, so I knew exactly what I was going to listen to heading home from work today when I found out he released his T money, Ceejayy, and Nejjii-produced record …

Freestyle – [Lil Gotit]

If you know anything about me, you know that I’m a big Lil Gotit fan. There was a time not too long ago when he was dropping multiple tracks per week, and even when I thought that his older brother Lil Keed was outdoing him in terms of numbers and a growing fanbase, I realized that Gotit was even more unique than anyone in the Atlanta area, and I think this helped him ditch the shadow of his sibling in no time. Regardless, I feel like he is such an underrated talent, and if anyone is mentored by artists like Young Thug and Gunna, you know they’re set up for success. It seems like quite some time has passed since I last tapped in with Gotit for one reason or another, but when I was scrolling through YouTube yesterday, I realized that he dropped a new song called “Freestyle” as well as a Brett5d and BENNYBANDZ-directed music video that I was definitely not going to miss out on. In the instrumental for this hit, things seem to be very epic with synths and drums that combine as if there is a build-up to something huge, and Gotit ensures that he’s …

On tha linë – [Yeat]

I don’t know if this is a controversial opinion, and I don’t think it is even a little bit, but if you ask me, Yeat is already the artist of the year and we’re only two months into the year. I know that 2021 was game-changing for him, but it just seems like that was all child’s play when looking at what he has done so early on in 2022. Of course, his album 2 Alivë was absolutely insane thanks to the 20 songs that lasted over an hour long and it showed off even more dexterousness from the Portland hitmaker. Not only this, but it even boasted insanely massive features in artists like Young Thug and Gunna as well as some incredible underground guests like Yung Kayo, Ken Car$on, and SeptembersRich, and even with all of these names, Yeat was clearly the most show-stopping performer on every single track he included on this album. Add in those accomplishments alongside a Cole Bennett-directed music video for “Still Countin”, and that’s exactly what he’s going to be doing as he continues to amass insane numbers on any record he puts out. As always, Yeat is never comfortable where he’s at, so …
