MC artist Cue Roc (Jonathan Valdivieso), with his latest album True Jefe, produced by E.REX, chants his rhyming lyrics to the beat. His goal is to create relevant, true essence hip-hop music, stemming from its roots of real life emotions and experiences.
Cue Roc was born in Queens, N.Y. and started rhyming lyrics when he was just 14. He went to live in Bolivia for a few years in his teens and became engaged in Latin Rap. Cue Roc raps in both English and Spanish, often mixing the two on the same record. The Bolivian culture introduced him to the rhythm and excitement of salsa music, that Cue Roc infuses into his style.
His early influences include DJ C-Lo, with whom he recorded, Mobb Deep, Big L, and Jam Master Jay.
Months prior to his untimely death, Jam Master Jay, of Run DMC, founded the Scratch DJ Academy, in Soho, New York. A school that would provide unparalleled education and access to the art form of the DJ and the Producer. Cue Roc was chosen by Jam Master Jay to attend the Academy on a full scholarship.
A favorite of DJ King Flow and DJ Moon, Cue Roc is featured on the mix tape – str8Cashflow Vol.7 – That Crack.
