Jayquan Cutler (born November 9, 1991), better known by his stage name Why Cue, is an American rapper and record producer from New York City.[1] He first gained recognition for his work with former Jive Records artist Lil B.[1]

Early life[edit]

Jayquan Cutler was born November 9, 1991 in Peekskill, New York.[2] At age 11, Cutler started writing music on cassette tapes under the moniker Young Quan.[2][3]


Cutler was encouraged to pursue a career in music by his stepfather who was a DJ.[2][3] Lacking the funds to purchase professional recording equipment, Cutler stole a microphone from his high school to record his first album.[2] In 2010, Cutler responded to a mass tweet from Lil B that said "I need beats".[3] This lead Cutler to produce the track "Out The Hood" by Lil B off the latter's Red Flame mixtape.[4] Cutler first received national radio airplay on New York City's Hot 97 as a featured artist on Roswell Gray's track "I Get Around" which also featured D4L's Shawty Lo.[5] In 2019, Cutler dropped his debut independent project Xxotic.[6][7] The lead single "Cappin Alert" was featured in Hip-Hop Weekly, DJ Enuff and The Source.[8][9]


Cutler lists Ice Cube, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, Dipset, Gunna and Lil Baby as his primary influences.[3]
