Overall, Flight 973 To Sydney, is an excellent Hip-Hop experience which not only introduces you to Internal Quest (and put the spotlight on the still chronically slept on state of New Jersey Hip-Hop) but also reinforces that real, original music is alive and kicking in the modern rap world. - PlanetIll.com

Bio

Hold Up! ...Hip-Hop has been a major force for Internal Quest – the emcee, producer and engineer. Growing up in the streets of New Jersey’s largest city, Newark, Terry Booker was born to be in the limelight. Influenced by the Notorious B.I.G., Terry borrowed the Brooklynite’s first rap alter ego of Quest and ever since then Terry embodied the skill and potential of a gifted rapper.

At the young age of 6 years old Internal Quest began to play drums that lasted until high school. Blessed with the confidence to create music Internal Quest, or simply known as Quest, put his gifts into the form of music and started to produce and rap. When Quest turned 17 years old he began working with local rappers in Brick City; although some of his affiliations fell through Quest put his future into his own hands and formed his own opportunities. Internal Quest decided to pursue audio engineering as a career by enrolling into the Institute of Audio Research (IAR) in Manhattan and graduated from IAR with a 3.8 GPA. In 2010, Internal Quest and his manager created Jersey Sound Lab, a group of young hip-hop inspired rappers, singers and producers that come together to preserve hip-hop and make quality productions through mixtapes and compilations.

In the summer of 2010, Internal Quest dropped an international mix cd titled “Flight 973 to Sydney” with Australia’s #1 Urban DJ - DJ Nino Brown that reached the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Canada, and Australia. Internal Quest has worked with Germany’s own B-Doub on their “Food for Thought” project that features Internal Quest and El Da Sensei’s track “Talk of the City”.

Internal Quest continues to unleash raw talent by releasing group compilations, mixtapes and solo projects. Internal Quest has toured across the east and mid west from New York City to Memphis to Chicago. The summer of 2011, Quest opened up for Brand Nubian’s Sadat X in Memphis, which was featured on MTV’s M.A.D.E. Chicago fans showed love as Quest performed his latest single “Problems” Remix ft. El Da Sensei, Sadat X and Craig G (Scratches by DJ Hush) [currently on Amazon.com].

Internal Quest was also featured as a Producer/Artist on DJ Nino Brown’s chart-topping “Blazin” 2011 compilation, debuting at #3 on Urban/ #5 on Compilation Charts by the Australia Recording Industry Association (ARIA). Also, Quest is featured on JAPAN’s “Seasons’ End-Moment‘s In Life” with track “Come Around” featuring El Da Sensei - it can be bought in stores in JAPAN and Amazon.de. In between producing and engineering, Internal Quest is currently recording his debut album, touring and collaborating with artists from across the globe.
