quincydivineIAA:  What is your music background?

QUINCY DIVINE:  It all started from writing short stories for fun in the second or third grade. From there it escalated to poetry as I began to grow and experience life more. Around the age of twelve, that’s when I was told to try my hand at hip-hop by a friend who believed I was a good writer from some of my poems he read. From then own I’ve been perfecting my craft. As far as producing goes, I started playing the keyboard around the age of nineteen and began producing for friends in the neighborhood. I’ve always had a passion for music, but that’s when I really decided to take it seriously.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

QUINCY DIVINE:  Well, because I do use profanity as passion words occasionally, I would say between the ages of eighteen and forty. Even though that’s the age limit I usually target, that doesn’t mean anyone else can’t enjoy my music also.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

QUINCY DIVINE:  That’s a long list, but I’ll try to name a few. B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Howlin Wolf, 2pac, Nas, Bill Withers, Raphael Saadiq, Curtis Mayfeild along with many others have influenced me.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist ?

QUINCY DIVINE:  I’m an artist who goes in the studio only to make the music I believe in. I don’t hold myself to a certain pattern or format to achieve that goal. I just go in and I am as honest as possible. I let my music speak for itself.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects, you are currently working on

QUINCY DIVINE:  Well, I just released a mix-tape entitled Album Before The Album that’s a free download at www.quincydivine.com/mixtapes.php. Now I’m working on the album Beat Of My Own Drum.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

QUINCY DIVINE:  Short term, I just want to be the best artist/producer I can be and make Beat Of My Own Drum the best album it can be. Long term, I would like to make it in the industry and have longevity. In ten years, hopefully I’m on a beach somewhere reflecting on how much money I’ve made, how many fans I’ve touched from music, sipping on a corona working on the next big business deal.
