Quintescence: "The most perfect example"
Quintescence is the winner of the 2003 Underground Music Awards Best Female Rapper. At the age of 18, she has already commanded the attention of rap heavyweights like Jaz-O and DJ Clark Kent. Although inspired by ground breaking MC's such as MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, and KRS One, Q clearly has a style of her own and her own agenda.

Born and raised in the Bronx, NY, Quintescence has been influenced by rap's infectious culture since the age of 5. Her delivery is flawless and her lyrical ability is amazing. Her lyrics are original and masterfully put together. Her impressive repertoire of songs ranges from the autobiographical "I'm Sorry" to the club- banger "Shake your Ass". She has received radio airplay on many underground mixshows including Promo Radio 91.9FM. Not only did Q advance to the Top Dog Level of Amateur Night at the Apollo, she also walked away with an award in The Five-Borough Face Off Compitition.

Q currently has a blazin' mixtape out entitled Fame and Money Ova Bullshit (FAMOB) Volume One. Through her street-smart vernacular and intricate wordplay, Quintescence is an artist destined for superstardom.
