You ever see an artist who was negatively perceived before hand under false prejudices (a YouTuber) and watching them blossom into a true talent?

Oh man I have, twice. This is straight beautiful.

I don’t really know what to make of quadeca. i’m not crazy about his rapping and lyrics but his production is consistently incredible. “born yesterday” is an immaculately produced track, the glitchy and spacey atmosphere meshes so beautifully with quadeca’s heavily reverbed and occasionally bitcrushed vocals. from a vibe standpoint, this song knocks it out of the park. but my reservations on his rapping still hold up. this song isn’t as nearly as hook-y as ... read more

Quadeca’s new song, “Born Yesterday” is quite possibly the best song of the year off of my first listen. Cried twice. Need to process before I say

What did I tell y'all? He's always had potential and once again, he fucking shows it. This man gets better day after day.

Now, it’s safe to say I think FMTY was atrocious. Really cringey, flaccid and poorly written. Didn’t do a whole lot to change my mind about ol’ benji here..

but this one is actually pretty enjoyable. He’s not a good vocalist, or a good rapper for that matter, but he really works on this track. None of the terrible lyrics or cringeworthy inflections can be seen, and instrumentally wow…

This is phenomenally produced. It feels thick and warm and full (woah there ... read more

Born Yesterday is genuine ear candy in a song. After 3/4 of the year gone with some insanely epic releases, Quadeca holds his own against modern classics like Ants From Up There and MOTOMAMI to deliver a true experience that ranks as one of the best songs of the year. Who would've guessed that a 6 minute Quadeca song could be this good.

His best song yet, beating out Sisyphus. Quadeca has improved immensely over the mere year and a half since From Me To You, and it looks that he'll be creating ... read more

Never would’ve thought someone who came from the YouTuber rap scene would come up with something this creative and foward-thinking. He further improves on the ethereal atmosphere that From Me To You provided, adding elements of folktronica and art pop. I’m honestly proud that Quadeca has established his own identity as an artist and I’m excited for this next album. This is Frank Ocean levels of good.

Damn why this get so high quickly?

Edit: I listened to the song and I can see why now. While for me, #2 is still a bit odd, but it is still a good track nonetheless. The glitchy production and Quadeca vocals really make all of this. While the lyrics are decent (it doesn't hurt, but I don't think it helps), everything else is pretty much working their hardest. And it works.

Nice job, Quadeca.

One of the many songs this year that has forced me to truly focus on the lyrics, and everything else happening in the song. I'm going to need a few more relistens to get the bigger picture, but once again, Quadeca has amazed me.

Talk about a glow-up.

Quedeca has went from another youtube rapper to one of the most exciting voices in music right now.

This song ventures into the realm of folktronica, which is a welcome approach for Quedeca. I would also like to mention the phenomenal music video as well. The song is written from the perspective of a recently-passed away family member, watching his downtrodden family as a ghost. The mature writing and cinematic, glitchy production pair together excellently, to form one ... read more

Quadeca is back with a new single and it’s easily the best I’ve heard from him so far, however I’m not really blown away with what I heard. The production pretty much puts this track on its back as it’s easily the best aspect. The track opens with a very smooth and somber string rhythm that slowly builds with a few minor accompaniments while the volume sees a slight increase as well. There are also some electronic elements added throughout the intro to the track that ... read more
