Q (born January 29, 1979 Kansas City, Kansas U.S.A.) is an American hip-hop artist/songwriter. As one of the best hip-hop artist in his region, he brings a style and sound that is unique and familiar to the world. Q was introduced to hip-hop at an early age influenced by the likes of artists such as Whoodini, Grand Master Flash and The Furious Five, and Slick Rick to name a few. The engine of his lyrical content is powered by the fight between reality and illusion questioning the thoughts, feelings, ideas and images that make up the vast amount of human experiences that lies dormant in every subcon- scious mind. Q’s deep, rich and strong vocals give his flow character, clarity and definition.
