Last year was a good one for OnCue and 2012 is proving to be even more fruitful. During 2011, the Hartford-born MC dropped a career-changing project in Can’t Wait, worked with Mike Posner & Just Blaze and moved mountains with his interchangeable delivery. Now, Cuey has kicked off our relatively fresh 365 with “Rich Kid,” a brand new single produced by the extremely dope combo of Brenton Duvall and CJ Luzi. More electronically-influenced than much of his typical, indie rock-based sound, this eyes on the prize-type joint is equipped with a low tempo and fluttering synth melodies that allow the burgeoning MC to showcase his rap flow, while also hitting the high notes on the hook.
If you listen, OnCue says he never had the cash to be considered rich, but he’s definitely passing by with his fair share of paper. Music like this only helps his cause.
