Rising Miami, FL, emcee 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 his 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 financial 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 own label, WiseUp & Co.
The 26-year-old independent emcee went on to release his critically acclaimed album Far From Familiar in April of 2016, the official follow-up LP to his Searching Sylvan mixtape. As The Fader noted, Far From Familiar proved to be “heavily layered, introspective, and totally engrossing”, catapulting LaCue into the next level of his career. Shortly after, LaCue routed his own 8-city headlining tour in the Fall of 2016, entitled The Loner Tour. LaCue opted to hit the road again in March of 2017, this time supporting prominent Chicago rapper, Saba, on a 20-city tour across the U.S. According to Noisey, Sylvan LaCue is now carving out his own lane in the rap game with the "guidance of hip-hop and God". Lacue now continues to release content and share his perspectives, with his breakout single "Best Me" leading the way.
