Que likes being mysterious, even though he's just signed with Atlantic Records and his single "OG Bobby Johnson" has become ubiquitous on local hip-hop radio. During his live shows and videos, the local (t)rap artist dons a pair of black sunglasses, and his social media presence teases with the tagline "WhoIsQue?"
In spring of this year, Que and Sonny Digital, a close friend and prolific local producer best known for his production on 2 Chainz's "Birthday Song," released the joint Forbes Atlanta mixtape, spawning the single "Young Nigga."
That single spotlights rising Atlanta group Migos, who made a national imprint with the repetitive (and cheetah-featuring) "Versace" and whose mixture of gritty lyrics and dissonant melodies is similar to Que's own scratchy-voiced sound.
Que's been working on a new solo album featuring "OG Bobby Johnson" and "Same Bitch" (video at the top), which stars Que and Tracy T paying (aggressive) homage to R. Kelly and Usher's operatic "Same Girl" duet, although Que's version has considerably more elbow-pumping.
While few know what Que really looks like or who he really is, he'll soon be in the spotlight as the headliner for next week's Red Bull Sound Select show (Fri., Dec. 20), curated by DJ Jelly.
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
