Miami rapper Sylvan LaCue, formerly known as Quest, has been steadily building a loyal fan-base over the years with unparalleled skills on the mic, a forward-thinking sound, and a humble perspective. LaCue left his first major mark on the music industry with the Searching Sylvan mixtape in the fall of 2014. The project was widely regarded as one of the best narratives to be told in rap that year, receiving praise from HotNewHipHop, Huffington Post, Complex, XXL and more. SS touched on everything from LaCue's finanancial struggles and family battles to the rap game and the start of a new love.
At the end of 2014, LaCue shed his original 'Quest' artist name, going with his real name and launching his Wise Up collective. The 27-year-old emcee went on to release his critically acclaimed album Far From Familiar, which proved to be "heavily layered, introspective, and totally engrossing" (The Fader), catapulting LaCue into the next level of his career. Sylvan LaCue is now carving out his own lane in the rap game with the "guidance of hip-hop and God," according to Noisey. LaCue recently dropped Apologies in Advance, with his breakout single "Best Me" leading the way.
Cutting his teeth at open-mics in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, Khary found his voice as an artist when he started interning at various music and media companies in NYC. In 2016, Khary dropped Intern Aquarium, his debut project, which focused on his hustle and his nascent artistic being, finding viral success with “Find Me,” which recently placed on the soundtrack of NBA 2K18. Earlier this year, Khary released Tidal Graves, an EP created in collaboration with producer Lege Kale. With over 17 million plays on all platforms, Khary is an artist on the rise growing a considerable fanbase and performing with the likes of Tory Lanez, Kyle, Mura Masa, Talib Kweli, Royce Da 5’9”, Waka Flocka, and comedian Jermaine Fowler.
In April of 2018 Khary released 'Captain', a confident and focused new project, emphasizing the necessity of self-knowledge and self-mastery for success in music or any other artistic pursuit.
