Toronto's NUE Drops EP, 'U Met Me At A Strange Time'
Toronto native, NUE releases his latest EP, U Met Me At A Strange Time.
NUE made waves in 2017 with his critically-acclaimed mixtape,Iroquois. Now the anime illustrator is back with a 10-track project that reflects on the many losses he experienced this year. The lost of his close friend, Kosi Modekwe (Koba Prime), who died alongside Drake affiliate, Smoke Dawg and the lengthy prison sentences that have plagued his friendships and family.
Understanding that it's strange timing for love interests and music lovers to meet him, NUE welcomes everyone into his narcotized world of pain, careless partying, and self reflection.
NUE is currently on a Canadian tour with Grammy-nominated hitmaker, Fetty Wap. Earlier this year, he released the single "Nightfall," which premiered on Noisey, who referred to the record as "nasally harmonies reminiscent of "Lollipop"-era Lil Wayne." Additionally, he released "Nightfall's" music video and remix with Toronto's Pressa. Growing up in a Jamaican household in Scarborough, NUE developed a great a love for anime and basketball. After encouragement from his family, he began recording music in his brother's basement. NUE's unique sound and clever storytelling has garnered the attention of Hypebeast, PAPER, Noisey, Complex, The Fader, Pigeons and Planes, Earmilk, Dirty Glove Bastard, Rap Radar, Hot New Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop DX, and more.
