Audio: Sylvan LaCue – The Watcher 3

Sylvan Lacue


WATCHER_3[MIAMI, FLORIDA] After the success of Searching Sylvan, QuESt goes through a journey that he feels like he had a new awakening for him. Since now he goes by his birth name Sylvan LaCue. He brings us the first look on his latest release THE WATCHER 3. Besides his rebirth, I feel Sylvan LaCue is confident and is bringing it to the table. Sylvan expresses his experiences within his career. From getting an XXL Freshman nomination for 2015, getting featured on COMPLEX, and how the music industry really is. THE WATCHER 3 was produced by Linzi Jai and Wishlade [THE MARVELS], what an epic sounding sound. They were able to embrace Sylvan LaCue overall vibe. What an empowering hook from Sylvan LaCue; “Come and go and see them come and go. Lord knows I ain’t one of those“. Sylvan LaCue is currently prepping his debut project Far From Familiar. Be on the lookout for more content coming your way from Sylvan LaCue.

“I don’t see anyone talking about the cycle or formula we’ve all been subjected to for the past 3 to 4 years in Hip-Hop. Especially when it comes to up & coming artists today, including myself. Not to sound preachy or anything. So I used Jay-Z’s The Watcher 2 as inspiration to speak about it on The Watcher 3” – Sylvan LaCue.

Event Recap: MiaJamFest 2015 at LMNT

2ndannual

2ndannualThis passed Saturday, I attended the Second Annual MiaJamFest at LMNT. I would have to say this was over the top compared to last years event. The venue was big enough to fit everyone, a really dope line up of performers, amazing fashion from local fashionistas, and overall a great vibe. MiaJamfest provided a photo booth, vendors to get to know, and gift giveaways from Soles Inc. Man, they even had break-dancing, model runway, large projection screen featuring the talents of the night. Dj Bre killed it with the music he was playing. Shoutout to Webbz, Xali, Lady Llama, and Quest on their bomb ass performances. I have nothing but love for the coordinators of this event Ashley Jones, and her team of women who only work hard. I always have fun at MiaJamFest! If you missed out catch the photos below and if not stay tuned with MiaJamFest for photos/videos to be released.

Music Video: Art Morera – Answer Machines featuring QuESt

Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 12.34.17 PM


Check out the latest music video from Art Morera ANSWER MACHINES featuring QuESt. When you initially hear the song you assume this song is about an ex-girlfriend that Art Morera is trying to re-connect with.. But in reality, this song is metaphoric to the degree of an underground artist trying to reach out to music lovers. Their songs go unheard, and left on the answering machine. The music is the message. Artist put so much thought and emotion within their lyrics. They need more than just one listen, you need to hear what they need to say.

The video takes place in a library and a comic book store. Books and classic comics surround Art and QuESt and it seems they get lost in the sea of words. The concept of the song is definitely presented and seen throughout the whole visual. Consider books and comics are things from the past such as an answering machine. ANSWER MACHINES was directed by Kimber Vasquez. You can find this track on Art’s MORERA EP via iTunes or Spotify! Love the production from Nixon.

Music Video: QuESt – NEATO Season

Screen Shot 2013-08-14 at 12.12.56 AM

After a brief hiatus, QuESt bring his latest music video NEATO SEASON. What a welcome back! After touring with Logic on The Welcome To Forever Tour. QuESt walks through different locations with a torch in hand. Definitely making his mark. Love the way the video was shot. With the dynamic shots in black and white and all the other scenes. What a great way for VMG (Visionary Music Group) to introduce their fans to their new addition.


QuESt announces via twitter:


Screen Shot 2013-08-14 at 11.09.41 PMThis is amazing news! For local artist everywhere. When you put hard work, get a devoted team, and have great content. You will get recognize. I saw QuESt perform live at Irving Plaza in New York City this past July. He was an opener for Logic. The tour was brought to you by Visionary Music Group. I was able to gain access backstage and I was able to watch the madness. The chemistry QuESt and VMG had on this show can determine, what would of happened next. QuESt recently was signed to Visionary Music Group.

Music Video: ReL.B – The Wave featuring Quest and J.Travis

400686_423388617757168_1581507123_n


Check out the latest release from hip-hop artist ReL.B featuring QuESt and J.Travis for THE WAVE. The music video takes us to a coffee shop where ReL.B is enjoying his jar of coffee. Then all of a sudden his ex-girlfriend shows up with her new boyfriend. Emotions are conflicted and ReL.B leaves. After that everyone is chilling at someone’s house for a getty and she shows up again.

Why does she keep popping up everywhere he goes? He decides to leave the party to get away. She follows him outside to see what’s up? ReL.B states he’ll always wait for her.. but he’s picking his mic over her. ReL.B is on the come up! THE WAVE also features QuESt and J.Travis. QuESt has the second verse and I think the visuals for his part are pretty dope! The video was directed by YUNG and the track was produced by SICK.

THE WAVE is a really dope song and also the video too! If you haven’t yet you definitely need to check out the updated version of ReL.B’s website.

Art Morera releases his second EP, MORERA. An instant free download when you click the cover art above. The 8 track project takes you on a journey through the realest lyricism, amazing production, and it rides through. Collaborations with producers Mr. Nixon, Draz, Kiko Haze, Yarlen, and Frank Sassone. Also, this is the second time Art has a feature from another artist, which was QuESt on their track called ANSWER MACHINES. All of the tracks are my favorites but if I had to chose it will most definitely be WORK, TOO WELL, ANSWER MACHINES, ON DECK and DOLLARS FOR DREAMERS.

Music Video: QuESt – One Way

questt


QuESt does it again with a really dope visual for his track ONE WAY, from his Fear Not Failure mixtape. The video was filmed by SNKNY. The video kept a dark feel to it, with the thunder storms and cloudy skies. This song is sick, produced by Mt Eden. The way the video ends just gives me goosebumps. The concept of ONE WAY is a state of mind, if you are determined to go after a goal or dream. No one can stop you when you are on this path. Kudos to QuESt!

Music Video: QuESt – I Go, You Go

376945_10151031719773011_1244551429_n


I GO, YOU GO is one of QuESt’s latest music videos. This track is one of my favorites, it’s off his latest project Fear Not Failure. Love this song! It shows how an artist feels when they’re in a relationship, and how it’s difficult to be away from that person when pursuing your dreams. QuESt during the video is talking on the phone with his girlfriend while traveling from Miami to New York. It’s pretty dope that it shows him communicating with her through his cell phone, text messages, and even on a pay phone. Goes to show he’s intent on always being there when he’s not physically there.

The video premiered on COMPLEX! Shout out to Crooked Engine on the dope production on the video.

Music Video: QuESt – Gambler

460816_10150865983783011_214216814_o


GAMBLER has to be one of my favorite tracks from QuESt’s FEAR NOT FAILURE. The project was a collaboration with Mt.Eden. The visuals to this song is incredible. Crooked Engine brought GAMBLER to life. QuESt was kidnapped and taken to an abandoned warehouse, against his will. A masked man is using harsh tactics in his interrogation to crack QuESt.
