I saw some chatter about this collaboration on Twitter over the past few days, and I’ve been waiting for the release since I first saw that Cuey, Brenton and CJ were working on a track together.
To be frank, these three artists are three of the most talented up and comers in the game right now, hands down. Just look at OnCue and CJ’s unbelievable “It Usually Goes”. I had the chance to interview Cuey about a year and a half ago, and it’s been clear to me that he is the truth since first hearing his music.
“I speak that realness,” Cuey says, and it’s hard not to agree with him. While his flow is always on point and production always top notch (thanks to CJ et. al), his lyrics are always open, honest, and meaningful.
CJ and Brenton produce an anthem on this one, and Cuey supplies it with a beautiful hook and a couple great verses. It’s got the vintage Brenton Duvall sound, and it’s awesome to see Brenton collaborating with CJ on the beat. I hope these guys do more work together, because this is awesome.
I never was a rich kid, but best believe I’ll die one
If Cuey keeps putting out music of the caliber he has so consistently put out over the past couple years, serious success is inevitable. Cuey knows it, Just Blaze knows it, I know it…do you?
