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.
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 [...]
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.
"All I gots some paper with a pen and mic, and my fucking first amendment right!" " "Raw Thoughts" https://youtu.be/xuQ70CPSKTo Whoa...Lets let that one sink for a minute... For real, watch that shit again! Chris Webby's "Raw Thoughts IV" goes hard for over 6 minutes on the current state of this country and its political [...]
https://youtu.be/WyU83Enm4vU Chris Webby dropped his latest #webbywednesday release today and this ones a banger! This is one of Webby's best releases in a while. His lyrical prowess is never in question, but this one has that something special about it that makes you wanna replay it over and over. Top notch production from Jp On [...]
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.
Ekoh just dropped his new video for his single, "Ted Talk" off the album Detour. What can we say about this dude that hasn't already been said. This song is a perfect example of Ekoh's insane lyrical ability. Dude can spit straight bars. He tackles everything from the Jeffrey Epstein "suicide," to the shady dealings [...]
"Underrated" speaks for itself. Durand, Norad, & KXNG Crooked release a song that joins the chorus of other artists speaking for change.
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 [...]

We may not capture every great release out there, but we hope what we do share is a sound that's fresh to you. New quality music from quality people.
New Song drop from Vin Jay titled Young & Heartless. A good song where he basically lays it out there. Like what up. I made it. What ya'll gonna do. Check out the lyrics below.
https://youtu.be/bT7DSeHfQkE We're absolutely loving this new jam from the EightyHD squad. Chris Webby and Anoyd really set the bar high whenever they collaborate on a track! The production which was done by Webby's in house producer JP On Da Track, and Nox Beats takes you to a little Caribbean island out in the middle of [...]
Eminem has been in the game a long, long time. His first released album came out back in 1996. Infinite is lesser known but is full of raw hits, produced by Web Entertainment. Web Entertainment also produced Em's more well known release, The Slim Shady LP, which was used to sell Dr. Dre and the Aftermath label. I thought it would be fun to go back in history and take a look at all the first songs on Eminem's albums. I'm not going to rate them or anything. Everything Slim puts out is gold in my opinion. We'll just go from Infinite to Music to be Murdered By. I'll skip over the intros to each album and only grab the first song of each album.
