New Single From Sylvan LaCue “Televised” Featuring Rayana Jay


Sylvan LaCue takes inspiration from the soulful poet, Gil Scott-Heron, in his single “Televised”. The emcee’s self-produced song is a social commentary of the civil unrest felt across the nation today as it once did when Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution will not be televised!” began to propagate throughout history. The soothing voice of Rayana Jay is the hope that consoles the bombastic, jazz-hiphop single that is “Televised”.

“Making this song for me was all about challenging myself & the listener to think about the type of change we want in these times. Between the killings, riots, protests, & the presidency, I think were starting to seek healing & real change within our country & communities. But the variables are vast, including ourselves, & we have to be real with ourselves. Do you want a revolution? Is that what were on the brink of? Because if so, the revolution will never be televised, & we play a part in our need for change just as much as the powers that be.” – Sylvan LaCue

December 1st, catch Sylvan LaCue at BackBooth for his “The Loner Tour” alongside other 8Pounds featured artists such as iEKNOWS, Devin More, and others.

CRIMSON-..conception(LP)
From birth to death. From Alpha to Omega. Each beginning has its end. The glorious Phoenix scoffs at this misconception. CAP 6 emcee, CRIMSON, thrives within the cycle of chaotic chords, unearthly synths, and bombastic percussions in his nebulous LP '..conception'.

Kaiydo’s Tasteful New Song “Fruit Punch” Is An Enjoyable Blend Of 808s & Horns Produced By Josh December
Life handed Kaiydo lemons in which he squeezes into his red Solo cup. Producer Josh December fills that cup with plump percussions, tasteful trombones, and an ounce of sharp synths for a refreshing single, 'Fruit Punch'.
