Here at The Nosebleed Section we CANNOT WAIT for the full-length release of OnCue’s Cuey Sings The Blues which drops September 7th. In our opinion, OnCue has earned his spot as one of the best emerging MC’s in the game, thanks to a combination of great samples and witty lyrics. We’ve featured him three times before – first for “Crashing Down” and “Friends,” next for “Inhale Exhale (VKNG Remix), then for “Breathe Me.” Today, we add another killer track to the list – “Let Loose.” Featuring a sample of Feist’s “One, Two, Three, Four,” Cuey teams up with Nickelus F and Theo Martins for a masterful collaboration. Cuey kills his verse which is highlighted by his combination of confidence and humour – lyrics include¬† “never been cocky but i still know i’m the shit though” and the funny line “don’t bring your girlfriend around me homie I might motorboat her.” It’s Cuey letting loose, and it’s fun to listen to – we couldn’t enjoy it more. Check it out/download below! Spread the word – and remember, you heard it hear first.

As you can see in the poster above, OnCue’s next mixtape “Cuey Sings The Blues” will be dropping for FREE on September 7th. The two leaks off the album have been outstanding – “Friends” and “Crashing Down” – and it’s impossble to wait for the full project to be released given our excitement (check out the video preview below!). To hold ourselves/our followers over, today’s post features an older OnCue song titled “Breathe Me,” guaranteed to impress all who listen. Featuring a haunting sample of Australian singer-songwriter Sia’s track of the same name, Cuey provides his characteristic¬† combination of thoughtful lyrics matched with a determined flow. As this is a somewhat retrospective look at the Connecticut-based rapper, it is worth a mention that OnCue’s previous mixtape called “Cueyfornication” can be downloaded here – and is insanely dope. Every song samples¬† a past Red Hot Chili Pepper single, yet it is OnCue who steals the show from the California rock legends on every track – particularly during my personal favorite “Otherside.” In my mind there is no doubting that OnCue is one of best emerging artists we feature, and watching his career progress is truly exciting, since every thing this man touches seems to turn to gold. OnCue, we salute you, September 7th can’t come soon enough.
