With “Fall From Grace,” Sylvan LaCue reflects on a self-realization that’s occurred over the past year. Debuted by Complex with an announcement of his Far From Familiar album, “Fall From Grace” is a look back at the 25-year-old artist’s decision to take a step back in order to take a step forward. “‘Fall From Grace’ is a hail mary from the Miami rapper as he attempts to find purpose and positivity in a world that has tested him left and right,” says Complex, “there’s also a powerful chorus that brings the experience full circle.” Formerly performing and releasing music as QuESt, he abandoned his deal with Logic‘sVisionary Music Group in December 2014 while deciding to escape the spiraling madness of Los Angeles in favor of re-connecting with his hometown Miami roots.
“The craziest thing about evolution is that you never see it coming,” explained Sylvan LaCue in a recent journal to his fans. Prior to “Fall From Grace” and the forthcoming Far From Familiar album, Sylvan LaCue shared his E V A N G E L I N E EP in December ’15 via Pigeons & Planes. While Far From Familiar is set to share the story of Sylvan LaCue losing his ambition and becoming detached from the friends and family that he truly cares for, the E V A N G E L I N E EP was a postlude to the album, exploring a trip to Emeryville, CA, where Sylvan LaCue fell in love with a woman who helped him overcome the adversity and gave him the courage to take the necessary steps to discovering the inner self he’s been searching for.
