Year Of The Youth is an experience. One that needs to be witnessed in order to be understood.
Fort Lauderdale’s Mike Lary makes his return to CitrusRap by dropping off his well-awaited, Benny Flash directed video for his summer heater, “Citrus”. Produced by Boss Brain. Putting a cinematic look behind this apparent money making anthem. Say it with me just one more time… BITCH I’M GETTING TO THE CHEESE!
Central Florida heavy hitter, Bukkweat Bill, almost broke his wrist while remixing this audio dope. The original trap demon returns with another 666 Mix dubbed “Bartier Bukkweat”. Listen as Bukkweat Bill completely dismantles this Cardi B and 21 Savage hit. Completely taking it over, with a Mixtape Weezy mentality. Nearly forcing our brains to replace the original. Bukkweat Bill is using 2018 to remind the world that he still has the power to put his red kicks on everyone’s neck in the rap game.

Representing The Nolia, by way of Broward County, Kodak Black has been making serious noise after the release of his video “Project Baby” in 2013, where he embodies the 90’s/early 2000’s style of Louisiana rap culture. But like a lot of BG’s, he shortly fell out of public sight due to a run in with the law. Once Kodak officially jumped he came with this heater, dubbed ‘No Flockin’. A track that has been circulating for almost a year and has yet to let up. Giving us a preview of what he’s capable of doing while having fun and proving to all doubters and spectators that there is still A LOT more potential to be unlocked. With his latest mixtape Heart Of The Projects steadily doing numbers, we sit and watch as his stock steadily rises. As a Florida native and southern representer, I am truly proud that this young man is making these major moves in South Florida. All prayers and blessings to Kodak Black. We need more artists on the scene that never flock, never lack, and always come correct.
The man. The myth. Miami’s GenoDa1 has delivered once again. Can’t say that I’m surprised, but damnit, I am impressed nonetheless. Today he drops off a head bobbing, soul filled, bar tainted journey entitled, “Potent”. A ride chauffeured by one of Florida’s next destined star. CITRUSRAP.COM isn’t only the prominent source for the sunshine state’s raw and exceptional talent, we’re also fucking psychic. Produced by TaylorMade. When the beat begins, I got the initial impression that it would be a slow, dark, misty track. But just before the drop hits, the instrumental delivers a strong instrumentation, reminiscent of love in the 70’s. Instantly setting off the alarm in my memory, knowing that only means one thing. It’s about to crank the hell up. And with perfect timing and rhythm, in comes GenoDa1, using that buildup to fuel the hypnotizing voyage. Painting vivid pictures with his works. Brief stories and excerpts, fluid like flows that were placed in his mental bank, virtually waiting for this moment to create something great like “Potent”. The song is the ultimate tool when creating a vibe. This our millionth time explaining how gifted this man is. Embed this into your head. From here on out, anytime that you see his name, today is the day that we told you so.
The man with a thousand verses returns to the citrus life. Christ Dillinger drops off a new track, “Pour in the Wock” produced by Sgull and Dillinger himself. The hard-hitting record will have you raging at Christ’s next show. Be sure to pour up and jam this new track!
Trick Daddy, Liberty City’s finest and one of Florida’s phenoms. The year was 2000. After blessing the culture with a momentum shifting, battle of the sexes banger like “Nann Nigga”, Trick makes his Atlantic Records debut with “Shut Up”, bringing in Slip N’ Slide members and reprising Trina’s guest role, pushing her into the future spotlight. ‘Shut Up” was dubbed as the rowdiest club hit of that year. The lead single that helped push his third studio album, “Book of Thugs: AK Verse 47”, to sell over 500,000 copies domestically, certifying it gold.
A song intended for clubs and hood bars, yet he continued to elevate to national awareness, while still embodying the South Florida culture to the core. From the high energy marching bands, to the gold grills and donks. He shows the masses exactly what our environment, and inspired and influenced a lot of us jits during that time.
There’s even a brief cameo by The U’s, Edgerrin James during his star years.
If we all studied our rap history, then we should know that this kick off a monumental career for this man. Despite how the world portrays him, in Florida legends live forever. That damn sure goes for Trick Daddy Dollars.
