Bio

"At the end of the day, Q.B.'s clever wordplay, entertaining subject matter and unusual character are what will open the world's eyes and allow him to introduce himself"- Tory Fredricks (Source Magazine, Unsigned Hype 2005.)

His reputation for having one of the best live performances in Chicago, as well as his ability to pack crowds into venues with no record deal or radio play has set the stage for Que B.I.L.L.A.H. ‘s entrance onto the global Hip-Hop scene.

In 2005 Que B.I.L.L.A.H. became the first Source Magazine „Unsigned Hype? from Chicago since Common. Fueled by this newfound notoriety, Que decided it was a no-brainer and pursued his music career full time. After entering into a management deal with Chaka Zulu of DTP Records, Que joined Ludacris on a national tour. Becoming the go to guy for promoters in need of explosive supporting acts, Que soon opened for Rakim, KRS 1, Twista, David Banner, & others.

In the years following, he sold over 20 thousand mixtapes and performed at nearly every concert venue in Chicago. Que B.I.L.L.A.H.‘s aesthetic can be attributed to his love for Hip-Hop and Comedic legends. Redman, Busta Rhymes, Common, Eddie Murphy, Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, all influence his thought process. The result is the perfect formula for feel good music that connects with the masses while presenting the youth an alternative way to live and love Hip-Hop.

Both the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune have written articles commenting on Que Billah’s performance prowess and on wax he’s able to ‘bottle’ his live show’s energy, a quality picked up on by the video game industry. In 2006 Que’s music was featured on the highly anticipated video game Scarface: The World Is Yours, and in 2008 on Midway Games’ Blitz the League.

In 2009 Que Billah collaborated with national recording artist KRS One and fellow Chicagoans The Cool Kids on songs which have since garnered massive internet buzz worldwide. Billah's buzz grows stronger every day.

Starting off 2011 with a bang Que embarked on some of the biggest shows of his career, opening for Wu-Tang in January, Talib Kweli in Feb, The Beatnuts in March, J*Davey in April and most recently Summerfest in Milwaukee opening for Wiz Khalifa.

2011 continues to be promising as Que Billah puts the finishing touches on some groundbreaking projects. His long awaited 1000 Words video project (slated for Fall 2011) will consist of 10 videos using still photography to paint the vivid picture connecting the listener to Que's imagination. An all-video mixtape/DVD titled You Can?t Do That on Television (mixed by Chicago legend DJ 33 1/3) is on deck for January 2012.
