It’s moments like these that bring the years of blogging about music full circle.
A year ago, Khary still had “Durgans” attached to his name and still hadn’t put out a project. Sylvan LaCue was still rocking his QueSt persona. More than halfway through 2016, the two have taken a step up in their careers with new projects (Intern Aquarium and Far From Familiar, respectively).
Today, the two East Coast rappers join on a remix of Khary’s “Find Me,” which has probably found the most success of all the individual tunes on the Bostonian’s mixtape.
The core of “Find Me” has Khary evolving, or at least having the ambition to evolve to a spot other rappers will have trouble matching. Sylvan matches those sentiments in his opening verse, which took over the first minute and a half of the Lege Kale production. He rapped, “I’m exactly where I said I would be last year,” highlighting how the transition from his former moniker and to his full name helped breathe new life into the Miami native’s career.
“The coolest thing about working on this remix was that I wrote the original song at the end of 2015. A lot has changed in my career since then, so it was dope being follow up on the initial concept with a verse that details my progress,” Khary told The FADER, who premiered the single. “It was sort of like a before and after that I spoke into existence. Naturally, I hit up Sylvan to hop on it because he released a project this year and is in a similar spot as me. He killed it.”
