Thisis50 & Young Jack Thriller recently spoke with Quan. In our interview, he show cases his skills by spitting an acapella and a singing one too, describes who he as a person, making a classic with Nas "Just A Moment", collaboration with Asher Roth, his mixtapes "Walking Testimony" and "The Struggle" & much more!
Ghetto Metal presented by Bazaar Royale and The Source Magazine. Bazaar hit the stage to kick things off at NYC's S.O.B.'s performing a slew of his talented live cuts. The headliner was Idle Warship (Talib Kweli and Res) who impressed the crowd with a memorable performance which included a guest appearance from Bun-B. Another familiar face was in attendance was comedian/actor D.L. Hughley.

Shortly after that Ghostface tweeted:
What a coincidence!

Closure Note From DJ Premier:
For all of you dumbfucks that are late or not hip to my yearly list, this is my own list of what I was bumpin’ for my enjoyment in 2011… Even though there were so fuckin’ many LPs that came out, I wish we had time to do Top 40 but fuck that… So if you don’t like my list, make your own… I ain’t mad atcha… Hate it or love it, I don’t give a fuuuuuck !!!
Note for DJ Premier for ’09
I judge my list based on dope beats, dope rhymes, scratchin’ and cutting, creativity, uniqueness, originality, and overall packaging of the product’s integrity. I don’t care if you sold a million copies, that does not make it dope. I went through more than 60 LP’s released in ’09 on major and indie labels over and over to get it as close as i possible could to being satisfied with the list so here it is along with the list.
Off that "Blue Dream & Lean" mixtape.
