Our Rising Artist of the Week is Los Angeles-based/Miami-bred rapper Sylvan LaCue. His journey is music has never presented one right answer and has defined by taking the path less traveled. He navigated through the explosion of the blog from the mid-to-late 2000s through linking up with, and eventually separating from, Logic’s Visionary Group. This personal journey is expertly detailed in storytelling music.

Though, his career has contained stops and starts, reflection and contemplation, Sylvan LaCue’s most recent album Apologies in Advance, is the marker of a veteran’s musicianship and a rookie’s energy. Get to know Sylvan’s influences on Wednesday in a TIDAL-exclusive playlist and on Friday, Sylvan speaks to TIDAL in-depth about his career and newest record.
