BIO Q The Key is a Hip Hop Artist growing up in Tallahassee, FL. 30 years of age Q The Key has been doing music since the year 2002 on and off. He started off with freestyling over instrumentals recording on a computer microphone headset and sound recorder on his windows computer that was in his house at the time. Growing up mostly in a single parent household, Q was always looking for new ways to express himself through music. Although finishing high school, his urge to make music caused him to sometimes skip school and hang out with neighborhood friends in the streets which led to trouble in his life. As a kid people expected Q to be what others wanted him to grow up to be but he decided to take his own path. After high school, Q joined the Army to start his life over and served his country for almost six years staying in other states and deploying overseas. At this point Q was still making music but didn’t have a consistent home base to make music a full time career. However, this showed the love Q still had for making music. His major influences include OutKast, UGK, Tupac and other Hip Hop artist that came before him to pave the way for his generation. Listening to different genres throughout the years has inspired him to move people with his energy and touching vibes in his music.
