Sylvan LaCue is almost ready to release his long-awaited LP, Apologies in Advance [Slated for a 01/12/18 release]. After sharing his Far From Familiar project last Spring, the rapper began producing — which led to his biggest single to date, “Best Me” — a piano laden self-improvement cut nearing 2.6 Million Spotify plays and 700K YouTube views. The Miami emcee supplied equally reflective cuts like “Grateful” and “Guilt Trip” & “Selfish” not too long after. LaCue has now shared his single “5:55”, which is an honest vouch for change within yourself.

Deeply inspired by Jay-Z’s “4:44” album, LaCue produced the soulful bass-packed track, along with new collaborators “Oaktown Soul” leaning on the “Marcy Me” piano sample to set the mood. The song is accompanied by a colorful video in which LaCue dances around larger-than-life valleys, showcasing a step towards light in a time where the world is at its darkest.
