Sylvan LaCue has completed his Young Sylvan trilogy with his final installment, the third EP. The new body of work is short and sweet, including five tracks and a sole feature from Merlaku Ra. On the opening track, Sylvan pays homage to a fallen angel, the legendary Miss Aaliyah:

I can’t I can’t wait on no re-up, take me take me to your leader/ Used to flip chips buy brand new sneakers, nice shoes my shoes sad face beat up/ Came back momma hot wait here clean up/ Belt buckles sounding like onomonopia, watch TV Sesame was a teacher/

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers I hated Rita, God damn man, I miss Aaliyah/ The good die young and the bad get heaters, meditate levitate regulate read up/ Gotta keep a balance man life don’t ease up/ Young new Zoe surrounded by woes

Along with the release, Sylvan took some time to give a bit of explanation behind his cover art choice. “The black air forces represent all the anger, all the frustration, and all the depression I’ve held along with me,” he types. But although the symbolism seems dark, it actually represents a new beginning. “They say when sneakers go up on a pole line, it symbolizes a death. And this very much is death. A death of holding onto childhood trauma.”

At the top of April, Sylvan LaCue unleashed Young Sylvan Ep. 2, the second installment of his ongoing Young Sylvan series. The six track body of work includes features from Drakeo The Ruler, Orianthi, and two from Grandmaster Vic. LaCue released several visuals to go along with the project, such as the most recent one “Peter Pan.” Prior to this was his 2018 album Apologies in Advance.

Be sure to press play on Young Sylvan’s Young Sylvan Ep. 3.
