Aye Cue: Fall In America
Aye Cue: Fall In America


Artist: Aye Cue
Album: Fall In America
Label: Sindicate Enterprises
Release Date: August 20, 2015

With all of the socio-political and civil issues being highlighted in the media these days, Texas State alumni and Houston-raised Aye Cue contributes his thoughts

and feelings with Fall In America. The album draws inspiration from styles like jazz, 90s R&B, and West Coast hip-hop and melds them into a new-age blend that sounds like nothing else coming out of San Marcos. Or Texas, for that matter.

The smooth production sticks out on this project by flipping popular beats and samples like Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” and Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice” and personalizing them, which allows Aye Cue to glide on each track with his buttery slick flow. The familiarity of sounds makes digesting semi-taboo topics like police brutality and injustice a bit easier, but the familiarity is also complemented by things you wouldn’t typically hear in a rap song like a jazz saxophone. It’s the best of both worlds. Fall In America is like a party where intellectuals and turn-up lovers happily co-exist, thinking, discussing and dancing simultaneously.

From the music to the lyricism to the cover art, Aye Cue’s Fall In America is the most professional and put-together rap project that I’ve seen birthed from San Marcos. I think it’s a great achievement for local and Texas hip-hop, and I hope the momentum continues to build.
