We at RatherUniqueFLA pride ourselves on being up on new or slept on local and national acts. Every week we're going to get you familiar by providing a profile and example for best new or unheralded artists.
Week 1 Artist:
Miami has more to offer than just base, cocaine tales and club music. QuEST, the 19 year old Miami native is solidifying himself as a testament to the previous statement. Make no mistake about it, as far as lyricism is concerned, QuEST is probably the best "New Generation" cat FLA has to offer.
The tape that really lifted my ears was his "Distant Travels into Soul Theory". In this mixtapes, that plays like and album, he loops countless soul classics one may/should be familiar with through sampling. This concept album is based on a relationship gone wrong and thus leading him into some hard times. It can get kind of mushy so be prepared for sorrow induced rhymes about manning up and asking the girl out, finding love, and subsequently losing it. It is definitely worth the download and thrusts him on the radar for his next big endeavor.
