The latest Renaissance man to shake up the entertainment industry is Q-moshyn (pronounced “commotion”) aka “Q-mo”, an established Hip Hop aficionado. A dazzling smile and charismatic persona connect this rising emcee with everyone despite age, race, or gender.
The only child of two musically gifted ministers (Michael Troutman Sr. of Berlin, NJ and Rev. Denise Wooten-Troutman of East Orange, NJ), Q-moshyn is a natural entertainer. Birthed in Willingboro, NJ, He grew up around the performing arts as his parents sang in choirs and performed in shows with world-renowned actors and musicians. He discovered his own burgeoning talent while singing in St. Johns (Berlin) youth choir, but he found his niche while rapping the Nina Simone hit Young, Gifted, and Black for the off-Broadway Tribute to Lorraine Hansberry at the tender age of 11. In high school he would go on to sing for the Peddie School chorus and chapel choir, but he honed his love for rap at lunch tables, Blair Day pep rallies, and Falcon Follies talent shows.
Q-moshyn first dabbled in the industry as the infectious on-air personality, DJ Kinetic, for the commercial radio station 95.5 WBRU in Providence, RI on the 360 Degree Black Experience In Sound. This wordsmith flooded Providence radio with WBRU 2002 and 2003 promo I.D.s, freestyles, two songs voted into heavy rotation, and the five-time Midnight Madness Battle of the Beats winning single, "Q-moshyn Sickness" with his older cousin Devin Wade of the Fly Boys
