Lyrical Lemonade's 10th Year Anniversary

A unique element was added for Lyrical Lemonade's 10th anniversary: SPECIAL GUESTS! Here are some facts about Lyrical Lemonade that you should be aware of before reading the recap.


ABOUT LYRICAL LEMONADE

Lyrical Lemonade, founded by Cole Bennett, is known for directing videos and creating content that aligns with hip-hop, rap, and many other genres. They are also well-known for their annual event, The Summer Smash Festival, which engages audiences from different parts of the U.S. and worldwide to celebrate the art of hip-hop. Cole Bennett himself has worked with various artists, including Lil Yachty, Lil Durk, Drake, Eminem, and Kid Cudi. He is also renowned for his commitment to giving rising artists, photographers, and videographers a chance to express their art through his brand. While music is one aspect of what Lyrical Lemonade is based on, they are also known for their community work in Chicago. To give back, they gather fans to clean up Douglas Park annually.


LYRICAL LEMONADE TURNS 10!

We are thrilled to announce that Lyrical Lemonade turned 10 on October 1st, 2023! Ten years of hard work and dedication have earned the brand a place for both youth and adults to celebrate their accomplishments. And, of course, Cole brought in artists to celebrate their anniversary! Here are the surprise artists you may know:


DOM CORLEO

One of the many past performers from The Summer Smash is returning for another round! Dom's music has evolved over time and continues to gain more recognition. One of his top tracks that keeps blowing up is "Wake Up." Corleo's next plan will be touring in support of DC THE DON's tour.

FAMOUS DEX

One of the many Lyrical Lemonade legends himself, Famous Dex! Hearing songs that he made previously never gets old. If you're into hip-hop or rap, you know "PICK IT UP" should be on your playlist. A$AP (haha, get it?). Dex has created projects where the audience can jam in the car or dance or sing along at a festival.

BLP KOSHER

Watrrrrrrrr, we have BLP in the house! This artist has been receiving huge engagement through the songs and projects he has created. I had the opportunity to see him at Summer Smash, and let me tell you, his crowd is in SYNC with him. This also happened at the anniversary show, and I am glad to see the energy stay the same!

SOFAYGO

Another special guest enters the chat. Throughout his performance, I could feel his presence on the stage. The song I enjoyed hearing from him the most was "Hell Yeah" ft. Ken Carson. If you are into hip-hop, I would recommend listening to his music more!

BABYTRON

One of the many artists who can pull off catchy lyrics in rap is BabyTron. He collaborated with Lyrical Lemonade to create a music video for his song, "100 Bars." The song is super catchy and counts from 1 to 100 (with more lyrics) within 4 minutes and 46 seconds. Another song similar to "100 Bars" is "A2Z." This song is also catchy as he goes through the alphabet from A to Z, matching the title.

LIL SKIES

Another legend who made our 2016 year memorable, Lil Skies, has been in the game for a while and continues to show his presence in spaces, including Lyrical Lemonade. As he performs, he brings out Yung Bans, Yung Pinch, and Landon Cube. Towards the end of his performance, he tells the crowd, "To everyone, chase your dreams. If no one believes in you, I do." As I heard this message from him, I continued to pursue the dream career I aspired to have, which is that of a cybersecurity specialist.

G HERBO

The spotlight shines on G Herbo, the renowned Chicago rapper, as he steps onto the stage. He kicks off his performance with the soulful track "Everything," setting the tone for the evening. Then, he seamlessly transitions into the iconic Chicago anthem, "Kll Sht," igniting the crowd. G Herbo's performance is not just a concert; it's a powerful reminder of Chicago's hip-hop culture and his journey from the streets to the stage, inspiring everyone in the audience to chase their dreams.

SKI MASK THE SLUMP GOD

And finally, we have Ski closing the night for us. Fans are buzzing with excitement to see Ski and what he has in store. Before he takes the stage, Cole Bennet talks about the Lyrical Lemonade album and surprises us with a sneak peek of the intro. While playing the song, they sample Sheck Wes's track and seamlessly mix it into the intro. As we approach the beat drop, a wild Ski Mask appears before the crowd, delivering his part of the song. I am thrilled to see what's in store for the album!

BRENDISMODE'S THOUGHTS

First off, I would like to thank Cole Bennett and the Lyrical Lemonade team for organizing this event for rap and hip-hop enthusiasts to enjoy. Waiting from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. was definitely worth it, and I relished the opportunity to reconnect with my concert friends and peers in the crowd. One of the aspects I always appreciate about the team is their dedication to allowing others to express their creativity and supporting them throughout the process. I hope to continue attending more events like this, engaging with fellow enthusiasts, and working together to build a strong community.
