Darrell Medellin’s “Lemonade Freestyle” was one of the biggest Filipino rap songs in 2022, thanks to an abundance of viral TikTok videos referencing his punchlines from the track. The banger, which flips Jeremy Passion’s classic “Lemonade”, has just received official remix treatment. For the new version, D1 tapped fellow Filipino-American Bay Area rapper P-Lo. Both the emcees float on the upbeat west coast inspired instrumental, flexing their Filipino pride via their lyrics throughout their verses.

Filipino music fans will recognize this sample from a mile away. Bay Area rapper Darrell Medellin flips a Filipino cultural staple in Jeremy Passion’s “Lemonade” for his latest single and music video.
The original “Lemonade” was a cult classic on Tumblr, Myspace, and YouTube and the Union City based MC delivers with an appropriately throwback-Thursday-themed visual that features an all too familiar nostalgic 2000s aesthetic. While the sample may stem from an RnB classic, D1 delivers his trademarked lyricism while floating over the sped-up West Coast sonic instrumental.
The Cebu City native has worked with Bay Area legends P-Lo and E40 in the past and is gearing up for more releases this 2022. Check out his new music video for “Lemonade Freestyle” produced by The Senses and directed by Kiko below.
