Lyric Jones Is More Proof Of Why This Is A Renaissance Period For Women MCs (Video)
Planet Asia’s Gold Chain Miltary has assembled a clan of lyrical assassins, two of which just happen to be women. One of those MCs is L.A. transplant Lyric Jones. “Nat Queen Cole” (as she calls herself in this cut) has been on her grind in the last couple months, dropping two videos already in 2018 and lacing a feature for Blu & Exile’s In The Beginning…Before The Heavens LP in the last quarter of 2017.
Today marks the release of Lyric’s visuals for the “Lush Lux Life.” While her last single and video, “Got Bills?,” was an ode to the everyday grind and trying to keep your head up, this new track is a celebration of that high-end lifestyle. But make no mistake, be it a song about expensive tastes or one full of refreshing honesty, Lyric doesn’t waste a chance to bar out. And this double threat also tackles the confident chorus.
Producer Mike S. brings that late ‘70s, Grover Washington-type groove for the beat. The mix of breezy keys, funky guitar, and brass and orchestral string hits just sounds opulent. Gold Chain Military general Planet Asia shows up towards the end of the video as Lyric and her girls head into the club. We see everybody enjoying themselves on the dance-floor and in VIP until…Lyric wakes up, and it’s all just been a dream.
