Friday's "Release Radar" was throwing some fire this morning. I knew from all the social media chatter that some great music was dropping, but dang I was surprised. Enough so I thought it warranted a post on the website. We got 8 New Releases featured in this article from some of the best Lyrical Rappers in the game. Check out the videos below, and each artist name should include a link to either their spotify or youtube page. Here we go.
Welcome to week 3 of our "Rap Label Fantasy League", where Marshall and myself act like we're label managers, and use real life streaming and social data to simulate success or failures. Using the fantasy football model, we have drafted 2 teams of 7 hip hop artists. We've been tracking 4 stats: Spotify Monthly Listeners % Increase, Youtube Views % Increase, Instagram Followers % Increase, and Perceived Value Total Increase.
It's official. After all the doubt and hate, Team Hoosier takes a commanding 3-1 lead in the Lyrically Rap Label Manager Fantasy League. It did come a little later than expected though. Yeah, we may have 'planned' to record scores like two weeks ago. But things happen. Christmas, craziness, and stuff. We were lazy over our Christmas break.
Joyner Lucas released his latest album, “Evolution” today (10/23/20). “Evolution” is a master crafted set of songs lined up to tell a story of Joyner Lucas’ life. The message is powerful, tackling everything from Racial Inequality, the power of self, life goals, growing, and the truth beyond the exterior.
JL released his latest album today (9/25/2020), “The Devil Hates Sundays” and as I write this, I’m listening through it. There’s a lot of music on this album, 20 songs spread out over an hour’s worth of quality hip hop. Usually when I write these articles, I try to choose three songs that are my favorite. It’s almost too hard to do that this time. Like I said, a lot of bangers.
Mark Battles dropped his newest joint August 14th featuring Kevin Gates. Battles goes in hard on this one and displays his dope lyrical ability. There's not a lot to be "Thankful" for this year but, this jam is something to be appreciated! Check it out and make sure to follow Mark Battles on Spotify, or [...]
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.
