A trip back to the early 90's of hip hop.
An emcee, a publicist, a self promoter, a booking agent, a movie producer, an author, a father, a publicist, a visionary. This is the many faces of the man that come to be known the hardest working man in hip hop to never be signed. From Compton, Ca, Quanstar was originally exposed to hip hop at the age of 7 with his first cassette tape, Radio by LL Cool J, and instantly became a certified head. Seven years later he began honing his skills battling everyone and anyone who thought they were an emcee. Quanstar is a trip to the early 90s, the Golden Age of Hip Hop. He paints vivid pictures with conscious, heartfelt lyrics which is a feat that few can achieve in the current hip hop arena that is now saturated with bling and booty. Quanstars approach is to bring hip hop back to where it used to be...about the people.

Have you performed in front of an audience?
I play all over the country. In 2005 I began touring under "The Bring Your 'A' Game Series". Since then I've had 6 national tours and over 200 dates in 3 years all booked by myself. I've also been blessed to play with a lot of great acts like Black Sheep, Akil of Jurassic, Hieroglyphics, KRS One, One Be Lo, Kamikaze, Blue Print, Kaze, The Justus League, and more.
