Last May, local rapper NUE had only released two songs, but those in the know at Vice, Pigeons and Plane, and High Clouds took notice. After he dropped a mixtape in March 2018, PaperMag dubbed him “the Toronto rapper to keep your radar on."

His music fuses rhymes and melody with a mix of modern 808 sound.

 "I love music that takes you somewhere and I like to create places with my music. 'Obvious' to me is just this future dystopia, that's just how I hear it," says NUE.

 "'Alaska' is just some fly sh*t for when you’re feeling yourself," says NUE.
