Biography

Quincy Augustus Peters, AKA Quincy, QP or Q, was born in Petersburg, VA. He is the first-born child to Sydney Scott and Windell Peters. After his parents divorce, Quincy’s mother decided to move to Los Angeles California to pursue her career in entertainment. As his mother pursued her career in entertainment, Quincy developed a hunger to get to know the real city of L.A., the streets. As a young man he had a way with people. Even the pimps and hustlers trusted him. He established relationships with people from the streets as well as those who lived uptown. Mixed with street and church education, he blended both worlds to stay aware of the realities in life as well as understanding the differences between right and wrong. Quincy also felt the need to tell everybody’s story, especially the real story of the street. He wanted to communicate that in layman’s terms so everyone could relate.
While Sydney was working on one of her songs she mentioned to Quincy that she needed a rapper and couldn't find one. Quincy silently went into his room and wrote his first rhyme mixed with a verse from a song by Kris Kross and thus started his rap career at age 11. Quincy began studying artist such as Common Sense, The Roots, Organized Confusion, Rass Kass, Red Man, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, DJ Quick, Jay Z, Bennie Siegle, and much more.
