YOTD – [CP]

Both a favorite of Chicago and us here at Lyrical Lemonade, CP blessed HIS listeners in his newest project titled YOTD (Year of the Dog). I was introduced to CP and his music within the last year, and was immediately intrigued by his style and consistency, which is further emphasized in YOTD. The album is an eight-piece project with constant heavy-hitters, with aggressive lyrics and flows that definitely point toward 2022 being CP’s year. There’s no questioning what you’re getting with each track; bass-heavy instrumentals, hardbodied lyricism and flows, and some ridiculously catchy hooks — my favorite ones coming in”WHY” featuring DCG Shun and BSav, “TRAPSTAR” featuring Warhol.SS and “DECENT” — that make it hard for anybody to skip a song. The themes of the project can be implied through the title, but are reinforced through the lyrics from each track. CP wants both new and returning listeners alike to feel how he’s coming in 2022, emphasizing his earned respect, solidifying his status as a force not to play with, and prioritizing the paper chase. I’m excited for his continued rise, as he impresses once again with this EP.  I’m equally as juiced to see him making another appearance at Summer …

Misfit Child – [Warhol.SS]

When I think back to the days when I was first getting deeper into music beyond the mainstream, Warhol.SS always comes to mind. For me personally, there were the major Chicago talents like Kanye, Chance, Durk, and others, then the local scene, and then the underground artists from all over the country, but I feel like Warhol.SS brought the underground world to Chicago. I only say this because it felt like the local emcees here were just that: local. While I felt like they deserved much more recognition across the states, that just wasn’t happening for some reason, so I resorted to listening to artists from other states that were truly pushing the limits. That is, until I found out about Warhol.SS. When he first began gaining traction, it was local, but it was so different than anyone else, so it didn’t surprise me in the slightest that he began to blow up to epic proportions. Since then, he has traveled the world, become friends with legends in the underground, and has managed to build a following that is much stronger than most other artists have been able to do. Finally, after much deliberation and time spent waiting, he delivered …

New Year 4 – [Warhol.ss]

When I first got into the underground music scene a little less than a decade ago, my one-stop-shop was obviously SoundCloud. It was here that I could just go on and find an insane number of artists who were maybe getting a few thousand plays here and there, but nothing substantial, even if these were some emcees who were really pushing the limits of music and trying their best to innovate with an unheard-of sound. While so many artists were from other parts of the country, I was inevitably led to Chicago thanks to some of these talents, and when I realized just how unique Chicago’s underground sounds were, I became instantly addicted. One artist who caught my eye early on was Warhol.ss, someone who is definitely not a new name to Lyrical Lemonade, but he has continued to progress even after his move out to the West Coast. After this move, he has linked up with some massive names like Ski Mask the Slump God, Lil Tracy, Lucki, and even Shoreline Mafia when they were still together, and even though I truly believe he deserves much more credit and recognition for pushing boundaries the way he did a handful …

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 …

Blicks – [Warhol]

Warhol has been a staple from the Chicago music community for a handful of years now, he has improved mightily & has made a super successful career out of music, and today he is back on our website with his latest record titled “Blicks”. From the start of Warhol’s career, he has always had an uncanny ability to made undeniably ear-pleasing bangers, oftentimes backed by hard knocking instrumentals, and this latest joint is similar to that style but much more polished. Warhol isn’t just an artist who can make great melodies, he can rap with the best of them, and he showed those skills on the verses provided here. This was a great all-around offering, I am excited to see what he does next, stream this new jam below! Produced by Gnealz WARHOL.SS · BLICKS PROD. GNEALZ
