https://youtu.be/qleJpzB4q7A Oh cancel culture... Gen Z'ers are attempting to cancel Eminem for lyrics he recited in his smash hit with Rihanna from 2010, "Love The Way You Lie." The lyrics in question speak of setting his significant other on fire if she ever tried to leave him. This all began back in February when a... Continue Reading →
It's late, but that's okay. It's a weekend of celebration. It's Valentines Day weekend. It's my anniversary weekend. It's Buggie Birthday, and he's releasing a new video for his rap/rnb song "Night". I was already working on some designs for him, and figured I might as well celebrate his new video release with a short post on the site. Happy Birthday Buggie! I hope everyone enjoys the video!
I'm beginning to think Em's marketing team might just know what they're doing. About a week ago rumors began circulating that the rap god was gonna be dropping some new music soon. A track list was "leaked" online and was covered by about every major hip hop media outlet there is. Now this is just... Continue Reading →
We're trying out something new here, something to stir up a little friendly and hopefully entertaining competition. Welcome to Lyrically Rap's "Label Manager Fantasy League". Its basically Fantasy Football, but instead of comparing football stats, we'll be drafting Lyrical Rap artist to our fantasy Rap Label. Marshall & I will go head to head to determine the best "Fantasy Rap Label".
I found 30 Lyrical rap artists who shared their yearly results on Instagram. These 30 rappers accounted for 2 Billion streams on Spotify over 2020. I've ranked them by Most Streams for the Year.
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.
Atmosphere, the rap duo from Rhymesayers, gave us a interesting video today via Youtube. "Blotter Acid Reflux Syndrome" is a complicated name to begin with, but a dope song with a strange video.
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.
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.
