“Five Minutes With” rapper Nue and his emotional “Toronto sound”

Today we have the chance to meet with Toronto-based rapper Nue.

For those somewhat familiar with the current world-beating dark, emotional “Toronto sound”, Nue is not new to this. In fact, Nue’s highly touted genre-bending approach to hip-hop and alternative R&B was first heard in 2017 with his critically-acclaimed mixtape Iroquois and then again with his 2018 project, u met me at a strange time, which led to a tour with Fetty Wap, a remix collaboration with Pressa and landing placements on the Call of Duty video game series.
