Usually Friday is the day to drop new releases, but that wasn't the case today. I woke up and felt like it was Christmas, it was just release after release. And another one! But for real, its a good morning listening to these new songs. We got new releases from Ekoh and Rittz. Merkules and The Game. Joyner Lucas and Ashanti. Krizz Kaliko and Rittz. And some Emerging Artists I stumbled upon, the World Emcee group.
We went and did a little extra, we recorded a podcast. Generally, we're just writers, who don't speak all that well. We pushed past that, knowing that having extra media was the best way to reach more of an audience. We need that audience to promote the best lyrical rap music that's out there. These days, podcasts is where its at.
Follow My Lead features Jehry Robinson and King Iso in a Strange Music stable collab. Jehry released his latest album, 20/Twenty, last Friday. It's a fresh album, with multiple inspirations of music composing some hard lyrics. I believe Jehry Robinson could perform in any genre of music, we're just lucky he's chosen lyrical rap. Follow My Lead is one of our favorite tracks from the album, and one of our favorite picks for this week.
Ya'll aint ready homie. I fuck wit Elites, and Jehry Robinson is that.Tech N9ne That is literally the first thing you hear when you listen to Jehry Robinson's newest release, 20/Twenty! That's some high praise from one of the greatest of all time in the hip hop universe. I happen to agree with Nina. This [...]
The young duo, Chach and Zvch dropped a new album today. These two artists are heading the next generation of lyrical rappers. At 20 years old, Chach and Zvch are discussing subjects a lot of adults do not like to face. There is a message in their lyrics, one that we share here at Lyrically Rap, that we're tired of this pop rap crap, and want some good damn music.

Sway Calloway has been a fixture in the hip hop culture for a very long time now. His magnificent body of work was recently recognized as he was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame. Since he teamed up with Eminem and Shade 45 to host "Sway in the Morning" we've seen and heard many, [...]
We've all probably saw those videos with the guy freestyling in the Uber Car. They've been around for a while, but just until recently, I was not aware that Hi-Rez was behind the sick freestyle lyrics. Random freestyling in public has become a trend on Youtube. Its fun, spontanous, and really demostrates some of the skills these lyrical artists have. Check out some of these videos of our favorite Hi-Rez Freestyle Uber Videos.
Another week and a lot of hard decisions to be made on our New Release Favorites. Lyrically Rap's Fav5 is a weekly feature where we share our favorite 5 Lyrical Rap songs released from the last week.

Why do we do what we do? That's a question that was recently asked of us by an artist and it got us thinking. Why do we do what we do? Well it turns out that's not really a tough question to answer at all. Let me start by letting yall know a little about [...]
Durand dropped his latest release, "Story Time" on Monday Aug 17th, 2020. Durand is a Lyrical Rapper from Fremont, Ohio. A midwestern neighbor of ours over here in Bloomington, Indiana. We covered Durand in an earlier story at Lyrical Rap, after finding him on Spotify. We love his sound, and were excited about his latest release, "Story Time".
FNX just dropped a new video today for his single "Bottom to da Top" today. I cant stress enough how dope this emcee is. He spits nothing but real, raw, meaningful lyrics. Trust me this dude gon blow up bigger than Europe during WW2. Keep an eye on this cat, for real. https://youtu.be/5mgbDwYRDpQ Make sure [...]
This week I was lucky enough to hear the new release from Versvs & Royce Da 5’9” “Enough for You”. The song is great. It’s a lyrical masterpiece. Of course, Royce’s name on any song is going to carry it’s own weight. Versvs holds his own though. There’s a reason why Crooked, Royce, Futuristic, Eazy Mac, Gawne, just to name a few, have worked with Versvs. He’s really, really good
