In October, following an impressive Live Leaks Freestyle session, DopeHouse favorite Sylvan LaCue began teasing a new project with the release of the self-produced “Best Me.” A month later, he returned with “The Truman Show.” And now, the Florida emcee (/producer) is back to work on “Televised.”
Inspired by Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” Sylvan offers up a thoughtful, two-part record that questions if we really want a revolution, and if so, what needs to be done.
“Making this song for me was all about challenging myself and the listener to think about the type of change we want in these times,” LaCue told hnhh. “Between the killings, riots, protests, and the presidency, I think were starting to seek healing and real change within our country and communities. But the variables are vast, including ourselves, and we have to be real with ourselves. Do you want a revolution? Is that what were on the brink of? Because if so, the revolution will never be televised, and we play a part in our need for change just as much as the powers that be.”
Well said, LaCue. Well Said.
Produced by the man himself, Sylvan LaCue’s “Televised” can be heard below. Check it out and keep scrolling for info on his The Loner Tour with fellow favorite, Khary.
