wildin – [Lil Tecca] & [Warhol.ss]

Whether an artist is from Chicago or not, it seems like this city always has a special connection to so many different talents, which is a large reason why so many emcees refer to this wonderful city as their second home. While Warhol.ss might be from here, Lil Tecca is not, obviously, but his work with us here at Lyrical Lemonade has inserted him into the music scene here, and he knows he’ll always have fans for life as long as he continues to come back. While these two artists might not be a pair I expected to work together considering their very different sounds, I was super excited when I saw Warhol.ss released a collaborative song between the two entitled “wildin” on SoundCloud, and the results were better than I could’ve ever imagined. Opening with the menoh-produced beat, lighthearted piano keys, tempo-setting percussion, and an interesting drum line comes in for a fast-paced and easygoing base that is right up Tecca’s alley. In the hook, he delivers some even-keeled bars that he diverts away from all the bells and whistles, but the effortless way he delivers his lyrics is just infectious, to say the least. In his verse, he …

Show Off – [Dre R] ft. [Warhol.SS]

Considering Chicago is my home, I always have to show love to some of the acts that don’t necessarily get all the glory and recognition of the massive mainstream blogs. Although Dre R is a name I’m not overly familiar with, when I saw that he teamed up with Warhol.SS for a brand-new song entitled “Show Off” and a KG Visuals-directed music video, I had to listen up and put some people on. I haven’t been in tune with Warhol.SS as of late, but he has been making some massive moves out in LA with some notable West Coast acts, and that’s something I’m always keeping my eye on as I cheer him on from afar. In this record, they recruited Metro Krazy for the production, and he does his thing with a bright yet intense synth melody that’s accented by piercing percussion and thumping drums that create a somewhat drill-inspired foundation that these two rappers tear apart. As Dre comes in right off the bat for the hook, he showcases a very intentional aggression that works unbelievably well over this style of instrumental. Warhol.SS comes in for the first verse, utilizing a somewhat raspy, mischievous, and careful delivery that …

Checks – [Warhol.SS]

Just a couple of days ago Chicago’s own Warhol.SS released a new record called “Checks”, and it’s something I feel like our audience will enjoy. Warhol has always been an artist who is ahead of his time, we at Lyrical have known that he was a superior rapper + hitmaker years ago, but over the last year or two, he’s been getting more & more noticed by the world. This latest record finds Warhol giving us two minutes’ worth of catchy rhymes, as he created a memorable melody as he always does, and in turn created an overall great song.

SITCHY – [Brent Rambo] ft. [Otto]

Ever since I dove deeper into the world of Rap music beyond the mainstream offerings that massive artists drop, my outlook on Rap changed forever. Probably one of, if not the very first artists I was introduced to was Brent Rambo, and he is almost solely responsible for this completely new mindset I had when listening to music. As a producer, he was bringing some of the wildest, most inventive instrumentals to life for some additionally unique rappers such as Big Body Fiji, Warhol.ss, Nolanberollin, and Famous Dex to name just a few, and his utilization of out of the box sounds and tempos truly opened my mind to an entirely new sonic world. No one was able to copy his sound or production style because it was so creative that he made it almost unintentionally impossible to copy his skills, so with the fact that he was always bringing something new to the table to challenge and push artists out of their comfort zones, I never knew what to expect in the best possible way. Since his introduction in music so many years ago, he has made hits with some of the biggest names in music at this point, …

Hit Em Wit the K – [DC2TRILL] ft. [Warhol.ss]

Ever since I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lyrical Lemonade, I’ve been put on to Warhol.SS and his variety of music. Although he had a much different, more closet Rap sound to his older offerings that were so intriguing but just lacked a certain higher-quality aesthetic, I still enjoyed tuning in to see what he had to offer. It was also through him that I was put on to many other underground artists who I may have never know had it not been for Warhol. Most recently, he teamed up with DC2TRILL to give us a brand-new song and music video, and although I was previously unfamiliar with DC, I’ll definitely be checking out more of his drops in the future after what I heard on this record. This track, of course, is called “Hit Em Wit the K” and it’s undoubtedly another hit in their arsenal. The production on this song incorporates ambient, mysterious synths with rapidly sputtering percussion and loud, punchy drums. All of these elements come together to create a shadowy, cryptic Trap instrumental that both of these artists seem to be right at home on. As DC begins to spit, he somewhat yells in a …

Unique- [Warhol.ss] [Valee] & [Plu2o Nash]

Out of all the various talents coming out of Chicago, there are always a few names that somehow manage to stick out to me time and time again. These artists are people who I just have to pay attention to so I tune in whenever they drop new content, because I know it’s going to be different than anything else in the industry. Some of these artists include Warhol.ss, Valee, and the super-producer Plu2o Nash. All three of these talents have been grinding for some time now and have made their way into the spotlight in their own respective ways. Warhol.ss’ gritty, eccentric persona gained him local recognition which eventually caught on like wildfire and led him to connect with some larger names in the industry, boosting his career like crazy. Valee’s absolutely uncharacteristic and out of the box flow mixed with his toned-down personality and minimalism made it obvious why he caught the attention of Rap fans all over. Finally, Plu2o Nash was creating the sound of the underground as a whole for years, working most notably with Lucki, but also getting placements for all sorts of artists, making him a staple in the Rap world. It’s not every …

Elbow- [Warhol.ss]

Few artists make it back on Lyrical Lemonade time and time again quite like Warhol.ss. He has constantly evolved as an artist, experimenting with different sounds and switching his voice up in such a new, dynamic way over the past few years that he always sounds fresh and innovative. As he has progressed sonically, he has also made connections with some of the biggest names in the underground, getting recruited for his talents to be featured on songs and even featuring some of those artists in his own offerings as well. While his gritty, aggressive style is what drew me in initially, it’s his constant progression and testing out new sounds that have kept me intrigued and curious about what he’s going to create next. With the announcement that he’s going to be releasing a new song every week for the next two months, “Elbow” is his latest and greatest track. Erratic chimes, trap percussion, and out of the box instruments set a foundation for Warhol.ss to test out a new sound yet again. Considering the production on this song is a bit lighter and more fun than his other more assertive offerings, he decided to follow suit and deliver …

Top Off- [Warhol.SS] ft. [Ugly God]

Warhol.SS has always been a favorite amongst the Lyrical Lemonade community. He started blowing up in the city a few years ago and in the ensuing time that followed, he proved time and time again that although “Speed Racer” is an undeniable hit, he can be more versatile and continue to make bangers. As he’s risen through the ranks of the underground, he has formed connections with some of the biggest names in rap which has helped raise his status and get his music heard as it should be. Off of his latest EP MIA, Warhol.SS recruited Ugly God for one of the project’s Standout tracks “Top Off”, which has received a music video to bring it back to life. As most of us know, the song contains swift hats and a catchy but leisurely melody. Ugly God may have gotten into the music industry with some of his hilarious meme raps, but he’s been getting away from those recently and this track is no exception. Warhol.SS shows off a delivery that sounds almost like he’s whispering, which honestly adds some hostility and validity to the words he spits. They switch off parts going back and forth throughout the song …

Q&A: Chicago’s CP releases debut project, ‘CINEMA’

For Chicago rapper CP, making music just seemed to go with the natural flow of his life. From messing around in the studio with his friends to dropping his first official song a few years ago, the process has never been something that’s forced. This approach to rap resonates on CP’s debut project, ‘CINEMA’, which showcases the artist homing in on his own sound–an eerily cold mix of hard trap and drill production paired with the rapper’s whispery, raspy vocal tone. While CP distinguishes himself on ‘CINEMA’ by embracing this darker side of his sound, the rappers who’ve influenced him up to this point effortlessly come through in his own flows. As a result, ‘CINEMA’ functions as a solid introduction to a rapper who thrives off of following his gut, never overthinking while still delivering something that sets him apart from the pack. Listen to the full project and find out more about the making of ‘CINEMA’ in our latest Q&A below: — MDR: How did you get into rapping and how long have you been doing it for? CP: I’ve been making music for about 2 years. It started ‘cause I was just trying some new sh** with my …
