How Why Cue Built His Fanbase
From releasing mixtapes in the early 2000’s Why Cue quickly began to establish a cult fan base. It all started after he and some friends got a hold of a microphone at school; which would be used to record their first tracks. Which would be the start to something epic. “I started out rapping; but I first started gaining exposure as a producer, Says Cue. “One of my first placements as a producer that really put me on the map was Out The Hood by Lil B The Based God. The song ended up on one of his albums. I think it was Red Flame to be exact. He also shot a music video and released it on World-Star which was huge for me because he and Soulja Boy were big at that time and I was a fan of their music. I forgot how I got his email but I just ended up sending him a bunch of beats and that was the one he did.” Quickly after gaining some traction as a producer Cue used this moment to shed some light on his music as a musician. “I think after the placement I just took that as motivation and never looked back. I mean I had a bunch of his fans that used to reach out to me because they loved that beat so much. I was also doing my own mix and masters at the time and once they had found out that I was an artist everything just started the way it was supposed to.” After using this opportunity to shed light on his career as a musician, He started releasing music videos. “When I started out I didn’t really have much money or any of that but I had confidence and I feel like that took me a long way. I think when I shot my first music video is when people really started to notice what I was doing because at first I was the kid shooting everybody else’s videos just trying to make some money so I could invest more money into my music and somehow it worked out for me, Cue Laugh’s.” After consistently releasing music videos Cue finally had his hit single Drippin; his first music video to hit a million views on YouTube and over a million streams on Spotify.
The Future Of Why Cue
The sky’s the limit for the young talented musician.

Why Cue believes in manifesting his path to success.
