Cole Bennett and Lyrical Lemonade preparing their first ever compilations album LL1*. It is yet unknown when the album will be released but the first single “Doomsday” by Juice WRLD and Cordae will be dropped this Friday (June 23, 2023).
“Doomsday” by Juice WRLD and Cordae samples Eminem‘s iconic single “Role Model” produced by Dr. Dre and Mel-Man, from his 1999 classic album, The Slim Shady LP. According to the cover of the single, Eminem and Paul Rosenberg will make an animated cameo in the music video of the single.
Last year, Cole Bennett talked about the album during the interview with Our Generation Music: “You know, obviously like the Lyrical Lemonade album has always been in discussion for you know, since things really popped off. It was always like it would be really cool if there was a Lyrical Lemonade album, you know. That was just built out with a lot of like, you know, it’s a compilation album with a lot of the artists that we work with and just creating different vibes and bringing different worlds together, but I never wanted to do it, because… man, man I really hated labels really really bad for a long time. Just because it just rubbed me the wrong way. Now, I’m learning to just appreciate it more. I think I just matured, you know what I mean? Because I was so DIY, like anti-industry and I just never wanted to do it, the timing was wrong.” he said.
Then he continued: “But I think its because it was when all the labels wanted to do these joint ventures and have Lyrical Lemonade to be a sub label and I never wanted to do that. I didn’t know what I was doing and I never go into anything if I’m not fully knowledge on the situation. I’m not a numbers guy either. I don’t wanna be tied into contracts with anyone. I do this because I love it. This is my passion. So, to see people operate solely off just finances and things of that nature, not to get into it too much, I feel like I was getting pulled in by some s–t that I didn’t want. The album being mentioned right around that time, after all of these labels trying to do all these things, I was like all of that type of stuff I was iffy about it and I just knew that the time wasn’t right, you know? I’m big on timing with everything, if I feel even the tiniest gut feeling in the opposite direction, I follow it.”
“Recently, because now I’m ready to take things to the next level, I’m ready to start working on movies and start building Lyrical Lemonade into different worlds. I got some crazy ideas. My imagination, my drive is in a better spot than it’s ever been. This is a unturned stone, like this is something that had to be done. It’s a Lyrical Lemonade album and I know that now with my experience and a lot of the relationships I’ve built, I think I could really do something cool. Bring people together and just make different sounds that maybe wouldn’t get made otherwise and getting more involved with records and that executive producer role, in terms of helping, construct, and layer songs. It’s exciting for me. I want to be in the studio, bringing people together and just building records, so I think this would be really cool.” Cole Bennett added.
