Sylvan LaCue’s sophomore album, ‘Apologies in Advance’ is sentimental and soul-baring.
Florida may be home-base for the new wave of hip-hop, but that doesn’t mean the state has a uniform sound. See Miami native Sylvan LaCue, formerly known as QuESt, and his confessional sophomore record, Apologies in Advance as a prime example of the state’s diversity. Trading in distorted bass for lowkey, sentimental production, LaCue’s sophomore album is a soul-baring lesson in self-work.
Structured like an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, Apologies in Advance, LaCue guides us through a therapy session where he confronts his own demons in the process. Tackling selfishness, shortsightedness, and greed over easy guitar riffs, Apologies in Advance is a record that quietly lays its roots and grows with you.
