One thing that can’t – and shouldn’t ever – be underestimated is OnCue’s passion for making rap music. In the last few years he's been a frequent feature on the rap radar, regularly raising eyebrows along the way with his innate lyrical ability and a singing voice that, although unorthodox, completely works for him. However, he’s beginning to make firm indications that he is ready to climb to the next level as an artist; it’s not just in his lyrics, but the beats he chooses to drop them on. His last releases “Never Do Better”, produced by Felix Snow and his combined effort on “Machines” with The Kickdrums are both audibly flawless in their production, allowing Cuey to do go no holds barred and do his thing to the fullest.
His newest release “Way Too Far” is a continuation in this combination of technically superb beats - with compliments to Maki & Frequency - and the ever improving lyrical arsenal of this Brooklyn based spitter. Ladies and genteleman, this is the sound of dedication; if that wasn't already apparent, OnCue took to his Facebook page yesterday to explain the hold up on the track’s release: ‘Sorry for the wait on the song. But it's here now, right? Don’t get mad if I don’t put songs out every other day. I don’t believe in that. There’s live horns. And strings in here and that shit takes for ever to get sounding proper. I love you all. I put my 100% into everything that is deemed project worthy.’
His upcoming project, Angry Young Man drops on the 11th of November, “Way Too Far” is available to stream and download completely free via. his Soundcloud.
